Lose the Fat with Sculpt 360!

Lose the Fat with Sculpt 360!

Due to the incredible success of CoolSculpting, plastic surgeons are equipping themselves with more and more complementary tools and techniques. The science of cryolipolysis, or freezing fat, has taken non-surgical procedures to new heights.

logo6A More Comprehensive Approach

Sculpt 360 is a concept that is taking flight from the launch pad of CoolSculpting. It takes the technology of CoolSculpting, cryolipolysis, and extends it into new territories. Several proprietary, FDA-approved techniques both precede and succeed the freezing of fat to provide a smoother and more effective overall experience.

With a better understanding of how fat freezes and how the cells respond – some sticking around and some dissolving away – surgeons are developing a more comprehensive approach to body contouring.

As Dr. Louis Bucky explains, Sculpt 360 is “a series of non-invasive processes that include external ultrasound […] and radiofrequency.  It includes the use of lymphatic massage that helps reduce the swelling and clearing of the areas where fat was accumulated.”

Healing Better, Quicker

Sculpt 360 is built around CoolSculpting. It prepares patients prior to the procedure and receives them afterwards. But Sculpt 360 doesn’t begin and end in the doctor’s office.

“Sculpt 360 essentially utilizes procedures before [patients’] CoolSculpting, procedures after their CoolSculpting, and has a post-treatment protocol that enhances the result and brings them an outcome that’s better, quicker.”

Once home, patients will be encouraged to take a look at their diet and exercise regimens. Body contouring and improvement becomes less an operation, more a lifestyle. After all, the body is in a constant state of change and must be guided safely and deftly through the hazards of the world responsible for deterioration and complication.


A Future Without Surgery?

The effectiveness and expansion of non-surgical procedures continues to grow. The candidate pool for CoolSculpting is large and growing as well.

Dr. Bucky says CoolSculpting is “one of the few technologies that I’ve ever seen that has gone beyond the exuberance phase of new technology.” Where other technologies may have narrowed their focus or limited their use, CoolSculpting is still expanding. Doctors continue to find more opportunity in cryolipolysis, not less.

“If we can get somebody to really understand the impact of Sculpt 360 and we are in it with them, then they should be able to get not only a good result faster but a result that’s transforming and has long term success.”
