Let’s just start by saying I’ve always struggled with my love handles. Blame it on my affection for sweet treats and wine, or blame it on genetics…I’m not really sure. Either way, it’s been my problem area, and a point of insecurity for me for my entire life. I am pretty diligent with my workouts, and keep a well-balanced diet. Still, no matter how hard I tried to shed them, the love handles just stayed.
I had always heard about body sculpting and had always been curious about if it really worked or not, but it’s a bit of an investment, so I never took the plunge. Like any of us, I really wanted to know that something would work before making that kind of purchase. So when SculptMed Medical Spa in Denver reached out to me about collaborating on one of their medical spa services, I jumped at the opportunity to try body sculpting!
Like with anything I write about on here, I want you guys to feel like you can trust my word and that you can lean on me as a resource if you are considering anything from what’s the best red lipstick to wear or what microblading is like, and now…my results with Sculpure. It makes me so happy that I have the privilege of trying things like this so that I can be a trustworthy resource to you guys!
Here’s what I learned about body sculpting through my experience and my results.
When it comes to body sculpting, I’m sure many of you have heard about CoolSculpting – the word has become synonymous with body sculpting (kind of like we just say “google” when we talk about searching something on the internet, when there are obviously many other search engine options). ScultpMed actually offers a different body sculpting option called SculpSure, which is much better than CoolScuplting IMO.
1. Both Cool Sculpting and SculpSure use extreme temperature to change/reduce fat cells, but SculpSure uses heat instead of cold. I’ve heard when you get done with a Coolsculpting procedure, your skin and fat can feel like an ice block! No thank you! Since SculpSure uses heat, you don’t feel a thing when you are done and are back to life as normal.
2. With Coolsculpting, the device is bascially just one big pad that doesn’t have the ability to form around your problem area. Sculpsure has several different device pads that can completely conform to you target area, giving you optimal results.
So…I’m sure you guys are dying to know…what were my results?
While I’m not going to share before and afters I can 100% with confidence tell you that I saw great improvement in my stubborn fat around my love handles! I did two treatments, but began to see results a few weeks after the first one. (These photos were taken in San Diego about 5 weeks after my first treatment fyi.)
I’ve always felt SO uncomfortable in bikinis because of my love handles. They always seem to pinch and poke in just the right spot, but since getting Sculpsure at SculptMed done, I can totally see an improvement. I wish I would have taken exact measurements before and after, but I can tell you that I for sure know, feel and see a difference. My love handles don’t bulge out as bad (or hardly at all) anymore and I even see the difference when I wear form-fitting dresses that I otherwise had to wear Spanx with before.
Sculpsure was 100% non-invasive and effective in removing a large portion of my love handles (or “flanks”, as they call them). The whole procedure took about an hour and was fairly comfortable to endure. The device is applying extreme heat to the area, so you can expect it to feel a little uncomfortable at times, but it cycles through from hot to cool to give you a break, so it’s totally bearable.
If you are considering body sculpting, I can’t recommend SculpSure enough. And, if you are in the Denver area, you have got to to SculptMed medical spa in Denver. They offer a full range of services to include everything from SculpSure to Microblading, Botox and Laser Hair Removal – something I’m thinking of trying out next. SculptMed is graciously offering my readers 20% off all services, if you mention me when booking (the only exclusions to this are injectables and microblading.) You have definitely got to take advantage of this deal!
SculptMed offered me services in exchange for my review. As always, all opinions are my own.
