If you are an avid athlete – a runner, cross fit enthusiast, yogi, climber, dancer, etc. – and still have little areas of unwanted fat, let’s face it: You Are Not Alone.
It is very common for athletes to have pockets of unwanted fat because certain workouts and diets cannot target every ounce of fat, especially fat around your midsection. Exercises to spot-target fat simply do not exist.
A lot of athletes attribute their inability to lose their belly fat due to getting older, a slower metabolism, and genetics, to name a few. But in actuality, belly fat is hard to lose because it is stubborn fat.
The fat cells in your midsection are comprised of two different kinds of receptors: Alpha-receptors and beta-receptors. These receptors are responsible for helping you gain and lose weight. Beta-receptors trigger lipolysis (the breakdown of fatty acids) whereas alpha-receptors work in opposition and work to slow down lipolysis. Alpha-receptors make up more of the fat cells stored in your midsection, which is why that area of fat is always the last to go.
That is why athletes are the ideal candidates for SculpSure body contouring.
Why is SculpSure Perfect for Athletes
SculpSure body contouring is the latest technology in laser fat reduction. Much like it’s counterpart, Cool Sculpting, SculpSure eliminates fat in hard-to-lose areas. But where SculpSure takes the lead is in its effectiveness and long-lasting results.
No Downtime Recovery Period
What is so appealing to athletes is that SculpSure does not require any downtime after treatments. Meaning, you can essentially hit the gym the same day you receive your treatment. Each session only lasts 25 minutes so it doesn’t take time away from your day-to-day routine.
Unlike liposuction or other surgical fat reduction procedures, SculpSure does not require needles, anesthesia, or any surgery. The whole treatment is performed with state-of-the-art laser diodes that are attached to a belt the patient wears. The heat emitted from the lasers targets fat cells without harming the skin or surrounding tissues.
SculpSure is so effective that results from your treatment can be seen in only a few short weeks. Every body is different, so you may require more treatment sessions to reach your desired results, but the ability to receive treatments 6 weeks after the first treatment means you reach your ultimate goal in less time.
Why Athletes are the Ideal Candidate for SculpSure
SculpSure was not designed to be a weight loss solution for patients who are diagnosed with obesity, but as an aid to weight loss and losing the last few pounds to reach your body goals. That’s why athletes are the ultimate candidates for SculpSure:
- SculpSure is designed for patients with a BMI less than 30
- Athletes are in generally good health
- May have grab-able fat that can be pulled away from body
- Have healthy, supple skin
SculpSure has been FDA approved to treat the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, flanks, and back, which cover the areas that are hard to trim down, even for athletes. SculpSure helps eliminate pockets of fat that persist, even with exercise and a healthy diet.
