SculpSure Q&A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is the latest in body-contouring laser technology. The laser light penetrates the upper layers of skin to heat the underlying fat cells. The heat damages the fat cells so they are expelled by the natural waste removal system — the lymphatic system. The process is noninvasive and has a reported 90% satisfaction rate.

Does the procedure hurt?

As the treatment begins, patients have a cooling treatment to help the skin tolerate the heat that follows. You may feel tingling and heat as the wand passes over the treatment areas, though most people tolerate the procedure well. It’s completely safe and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The special frequency of the laser won’t affect the top layers of skin.

How long does it take?

Each SculpSure session lasts about 25 minutes, and patients can go about their other activities immediately afterward. Expect to see the best results in about 3 months, at which time you can have additional treatments if needed. You may notice a change 6 weeks after the treatment as your body starts to shed the destroyed fat cells.

What results should I expect?

SculpSure destroys up to 24% of the fat cells in the treated area. When you discuss your areas of concern with the doctor, you’ll get an idea as to whether or not you’re a good candidate. Usually, the people see the best results when they have places on their body that still hold on to fat, even with regular exercise and healthy eating. Patients that have multiple treatment areas also have better results. Plans are customized to your needs and desired outcome.

Do the results last?

Yes! SculpSure destroys the fat cells for good. They cannot regenerate — you don’t create new fat cells in adulthood. When you lose weight with diet and exercise, fat cells merely shrink. They always have the ability to plump back up if you should you slow down your physical activity or indulge too much. With SculpSure, the fat destroyed is gone for good.
