WarmSculpting with SculpSure is the world's first FDA-cleared laser device for non-invasive lipolysis of the abdomen, flanks, back, inner thighs, outer thighs and under the chin. The SculpSure device is an all-encompassing, non-invasive body contouring system that permanently reduces stubborn fat without surgery or downtime. We are proud to be the only SculpSure provider in Utah County. WarmSculpting with SculpSure is the winner of the 2019 Patient's Choice, RealSelf Most Worth It award. WarmSculpting is the newer, better, body friendly alternative to CoolSculpting. This laser treatment works with the warmth of your body, instead of against it, to remove fat cells forever. The SculpSure laser specifically targets fat tissue, safely and effectively eliminating unwanted fat cells, forever.
During the noninvasive treatment, you will experience alternating sensations of heat and then cooling, where the laser is targeting only the fat cells to destroy them. Your body then processes the useless cells through the lymphatic system, clearing them away for good. This treatment gives a feathering of heat away from the area being treated, so you will have a smooth transition from areas that have been treated to areas that haven’t. There is no downtime with this treatment, and you are encouraged to go about life as usual afterwards. WarmSculpting takes 25 minutes per area, so you could easily have it done on your lunch break if you wanted to. This treatment will destroy 10% of fat cells, per session, on arms and legs, and 24% of fat cells, per session, on your core. Most clients have two sessions per area, and you can have up to three, if you want. WarmSculpting treatments are not intended for weight-loss results or for people who are obese. For most satisfactory results, we recommend WarmSculpting with SculpSure for those who have a BMI of up to 30, though it can be done up to a BMI of 49. Individual results may vary, and are not guaranteed.
SmartLipo, also known as laser assisted liposuction, is an effective procedure that utilizes laser-energy to remove unwanted fat. This minimally invasive treatment is for those who have areas of fat that need more than just a touch up. This is for reshaping and eliminating more fat than WarmSculpting is meant for. Dr. Cherrington, will start by consulting with you, and determining if you are a good candidate for SmartLipo. He will be sure that you have no health contraindications, and map out with you the best way to get you to your goal shape. He will discuss with you exactly what will happen in the treatment, and discuss the aftercare requirements.
You may wonder what happens in the SmartLipo procedure. First, Dr Cherrington will begin with numbing you with a local anesthetic. This will be administered through a few incisions the size of a pencil lead, near the treatment area. You will be awake for the entire treatment, and you will be completely numb. Some patients opt to listen to the treatment, and others opt to listen to books while they wait. Either way, you can be as involved as you prefer. Once you are completely numb, a very thin tube laser fiber is inserted in targeted fatty areas through a small incision. The laser fiber delivers thermal energy directly to fat cells and melts the fatty tissue, allowing the fat to be easily removed through gentle suction. The tissue in the area tightens through coagulation. It is through this tiny laser that we can fine tune your treatment with much greater precision than traditional liposuction methods, and we can give you the long term results you desire. SmartLipo treatments use multiple energy wavelengths to destroy fat, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and rejuvenate the skin. Because the area is anesthetized, there is minimal discomfort during the procedure. You may feel a light pressure, but it is a mild sensation. After your procedure, you should expect some aches, much like after a physical workout, and some bruising, though both are short-lived. Patients are typically returning to their normal activities within a day or two. Results are seen within the first week, and you continue until you get your final result over the next three to six months.
Smartlipo is the most widely used and extensively studied, used and validated laser-assisted liposuction or lipolysis system available today. It was the first laser introduced for this purpose. With a decade of studies, Smartlipo has been shown to involve less pain, less bruising and swelling, and provide a faster recovery time than traditional liposuction.
A very common complaint we hear at Gentle Revive is about the double chin. It is one of the more obvious things a person notices, and one of the more frustrating aesthetic issues people face. We have two ways to reduce your double chin, at Gentle Revive. Depending on your needs, we can offer you a WarmSculpting with SculpSure treatment or SmartLipo. The WarmSculpting treatment will melt away fat cells with a laser, on top of your skin, and our SmartLipo treatment will allow Dr. Cherrington to sculpt away any excess fat under your chin and along your jawline.
Our WarmSculpting with SculpSure treatment will destroy 24% of fat cells under your chin, per session. Most clients have two sessions per area, and you can have up to three, if you want. We recommend to pair this treatment with our TempSure treatment, which will tighten and firm your skin after the fat cells have been cleared out. Doing that gives absolutely gorgeous results. Our laser assisted liposuction treatment, SmartLipo, is a one-time treatment for those who need added sculpting, and careful attention to details. These treatments are very different and, at a free consult, we will help you determine which is the most efficient route to get you to your desired results.

Body Contouring FAQs
What is body contouring?
Body contouring, also known as nonsurgical fat reduction, is the process of targeting and removing specific areas of fat on the body. Contouring your shape with precision and detail, to easily give you your best body. There are several methods of nonsurgical body contouring.

Does body contouring hurt?
Gentle Revive places a high priority on minimizing your pain with all of our treatments. With WarmSculpting, there is a cooling mechanism built in to the treatment, so that while you do feel the heat needed to destroy the fat cells, you also get constant relief throughout the treatment. We also utilize ‘laughing gas’ and colder than freezing air to further minimize any discomfort you may feel. After your treatment you will feel soreness like you had a good workout. This can last for a week, or sometimes two. When you opt for a SmartLipo treatment, we utilize very strong numbing agents so that you do not feel anything during your treatment. Afterwards, you will feel some soreness for about 3 days.
Does body contouring really work?
Whether you choose WarmSculpting or SmartLipo, you will see results. You will start to see your WarmSculpting results at about 6 weeks after your treatment, and you will get your final result 12 weeks after each treatment.
