One of the great body contouring devices I discovered at the Non-Surgical Symposium 2017 was the SculpSure and I was able to catch Dr Saras Sundrum who owns two clinics in Sydney and loves the SculpSure to get the lowdown on why it’s so effective and why her patients are loving it. Listen to the podcast, watch the video or read below to find out more.
Trish: Fantastic. I’m here today with Dr. Saras Sundrum and she’s got two clinics in Sydney and we’re going to have a talk about the SculpSure, which is a body contouring laser device.
Dr Sundrum: Correct.
Trish: Exactly. I know you’ve got this in your clinic.
Dr Sundrum: I do. We’ve had it for one and a half years.
Trish: And where are your clinics?
Dr Sundrum: Annandale and Double Bay in Sydney.
Trish: Right. Awesome. Tell us a bit about it. I can’t wait to have a treatment myself.
Dr Sundrum: It works. I’ve had a treatment, it’s lovely.
Dr Sundrum: It’s a laser, which directs laser light onto areas of fat. 25 minute treatment time and within that time 20 to 24% of the fat in that area is destroyed.
Trish: Wow, so no invasive surgery required.
Dr Sundrum: No needles, no surgery, no pain, creams. Very noninvasive.
Trish: Alright, and there’s this four hand pieces. Basically, what you do is you put the four around the different parts of the body.
Dr Sundrum: Yep, you choose your panels. You layer it over the area that you want treated. You can have a small area done, you could have a larger area done. Yeah, and you sit through it whilst the skin is heated up for 25 minutes. Then you just take off the panels.
Trish: Is there any pain? Do you need any …
Dr Sundrum: No. It is a little bit warm. It’s not comfortable. You can’t fall asleep during the 25 minutes. My pain threshold is notoriously bad and if I can have the treatment, everybody can have the treatment.
Trish: Okay. Is it a one treatment or do you have to come back a couple times?
Dr Sundrum: I suggest that people have that one area done twice. For optimum results having that area treated twice is perfect.
Trish: After how long?
Dr Sundrum: Six weeks is the minimum amount of time in between the two treatments.
Trish: Okay, so how does it actually work? Is it like fat melting or how does it work?
Dr Sundrum: Yeah, so what’s happening is that laser energy produces heat, which is directed to the fat tissue, and within that 25 minute treatment time it heats the fat up to fully treat it 47 degrees centigrade and that destroys the membranes of these fat cells. If the membranes are destroyed, they’re useless to the body and your body clears it over the next three months.
Trish: Okay, so your optimal results going to be three months after you’ve had it done.
Dr Sundrum: Three months later, yes.
Trish: So you can have it done, wait three months, and then have it done again.
Dr Sundrum: Yes. Or just wait the six weeks. You don’t have to wait the whole three months.
Trish: Okay, and it will stack on top of another.
Dr Sundrum: Yep.
Trish: Alright. That’s not very painful.
Dr Sundrum: Not very painful.
Trish: Alright. Say for example if you had, because I know that it’s for stubborn pockets of fat really, isn’t it?
Dr Sundrum: Yes. So the ideal-
Trish: Okay, so someone like me?
Dr Sundrum: Well what we’re finding is that anybody can have it as long as the problem is fat. As you know we want people to stick to diets, we want people to exercise. That’s all part of this body contouring treatment, but we know that exercise can’t target weight loss in particular areas and that’s where this treatment comes in so handy.
Trish: So it’s just really stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t go with exercise or they’re just stuck there.
Dr Sundrum: Exactly, so everybody is a potential patient.
Trish: Yeah, totally. Awesome. Well thank you so much.
Dr Sundrum: Thank you Trish. Thanks.
Trish: If you’re looking to have a treatment done in Sydney, you can come and visit Dr Sundrum. Otherwise, if you’d like to find a practitioner drop us an email to plastic surgery hub … I’m sorry, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much.
