SculpSure Body Contouring Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a revolutionary new, FDA-approved method of body contouring that eliminates cells in the flank, thighs, belly and other common problem areas. The system utilizes non-invasive controlled laser energy to get rid of fat deposits and create a smoother look in targeted areas. Because it is non-invasive, there’s no risk of bleeding, infections, and other complications that can occur with invasive techniques, such as liposuction.

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure uses controlled laser energy that penetrates beneath the skin, targeting heat to fat cells which destroy them. SculpSure accomplishes this without causing any damage to the skin’s surface. Once destroyed, these fat cells are eliminated from the body over the following weeks through the lymphatic system.

Who is a candidate for SculpSure?

Healthy adults who are close to their ideal weight but with stubborn fat deposits in key areas are well suited for SculpSure. SculpSure contours the body by eliminating fat accumulations, but is not a substitute for weight-loss surgery, healthy eating habits, and exercise.

What does a SculpSure treatment entail?

SculpSure treatment is a quick, simple and pain-free office procedure. Some individuals experience a tingling feeling on and off as the SculpSure device heats targeted fat cells, but there shouldn’t be any pain or real discomfort. SculpSure sessions take 25 minutes overall, and up to four different areas of the body can be treated simultaneously, and there is absolutely no downtime.

What kind of results can I expect?

SculpSure has a high satisfaction rate. Patients often see dramatic results, up to a 24% reduction of fat in treated areas, after just one treatment. However, for most, 1-2 treatments are recommended to achieve optimal results and multiple areas can be treated during the same session. In addition to eliminating unwanted accumulations of fat, SculpSure boosts collagen and elastin production to aid in toning and firming all types of skin. What’s more, results are permanent: Once the fat cells die, they can’t return. Should you gain weight following SculpSure treatment, the fat will redeposit in other, non-treated areas of the body.
