Tired of Love Handles? Here's What SculpSure® Can Do

Tired of Love Handles? Here's What SculpSure® Can Do

Even if you’ve been unable to get rid of your love handles or other bulges on your body through diet and exercise, non-surgical body contouring can help you achieve the body you’ve always dreamed of.

At New Image Medical Spa in Fremont, California, Dr. Surinder Sandhu uses SculpSure® to safely and gently reduce the amount of fat in problem spots like your love handles, giving you the slim physique you deserve.

The trouble with love handles 

While diet and exercise can help you drop pounds in general, there is no way to specifically target fat loss. Working out specific muscles can bulk up certain areas, but no amount of crunches will magically give you a flat tummy. 

Many people who have done the hard work of improving their lifestyle still struggle with stubborn fat. Common fat-retaining areas include the belly, back, waist, hips, thighs, and upper arms. Flab, rolls, and love handles can be difficult to get rid of without surgery, which is why body sculpting has emerged as a more holistic solution. 

Body sculpting 101 

Body sculpting refers to a number of different non-surgical treatments, all designed to target excess fat. This can be done using lasers, cryolipolysis, injections, or radiofrequency waves. 

Regardless of the method used, the results are the same: The damaged fat cells are broken down and reabsorbed by the lymphatic system. While body sculpting cannot be used in lieu of liposuction or proper lifestyle changes, it can help reduce the appearance of fat in problem areas. 

How SculpSure can help 

SculpSure is a noninvasive treatment that uses heat to induce lipolysis, or the death of fat cells. During treatment, love handles and other areas of stubborn fat are gently warmed using a safe diode laser. The laser maintains a temperature between 107 and 116°F, and each heating period is followed by a cooling period to prevent any discomfort. 

During treatment, you can take a nap, read a book, or just relax. In the days following the treatment, your lymphatic system will begin the process of breaking down and reabsorbing the damaged fat cells. After a few weeks, you’ll start to see the difference in your love handles as they begin to slowly shrink in size.
