When it comes to achieving a waistline you love, sometimes a balanced diet and regular exercise are just not enough. SculpSure is an advanced FDA-cleared laser treatment that targets stubborn fat in the abdomen and love handles. This non-invasive approach destroys fat cells by targeting them with laser energy which they absorb causing them to dissolve, following which they are excreted by the body. It takes approximately 50 minutes and the results can be seen around eight to 12 weeks afterwards. To speed up results it is advised to have a slimming massage to help flush out the unwanted fat cells.
