If Your Clothes Could Talk, What Would They Say?
Are you happy with your body? Everyone I know has a part of their body they’d love to change. This goes for my heavier friends, my thin friends, and even myself! My goal for this year is to stop looking at the scale and instead concentrate on how my clothes fit. You are more important than any number on a scale. I personally work out at the gym 5-6 days a week, and yet, I have trouble spots (and I’m down 12 inches since last year at this time).I do know this is an issue for most of us. That goes for men and women, because I know Bill’s got some spots he’d love to get rid off. We’ve all been there with a closet full of clothes with nothing to wear.
That is where procedures like SculpSure can really help you and me. Never heard of SculpSure? Well, SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for the reduction of stubborn fat1-3 in areas such as the abdomen and love handles. It is the world’s first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis of the flanks and abdomen. The 25 minute procedure destroys up to 24%1 of treated fat cells without surgery! You can go back to your regular life right after, and you should start to see results as early as 6 weeks with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks2,3 . From the before and after pictures I’ve seen, it is pretty cool.
