SculpSure Body Contouring Q & A
How does SculpSure work?
SculpSure is a game-changer in non-invasive body sculpting. The recently FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment uses controlled laser technology to safely destroy fat cells that accumulate in tough-to-lose spots, such as the: abdomen (muffin top), thighs, and flanks (love handles).
The laser energy penetrates 1.4 centimeters beneath the skin to kill targeted fat cells, without disrupting the skin. Over the following 6-12 weeks, the body naturally eliminates these fat cells through the lymphatic systems.
Who is a good candidate for SculpSure?
Any patient who has “problem areas” resistant to diet and exercise may be a strong candidate for SculpSure.
What can the patient expect during the treatment?
The entire treatment takes about 25 minutes, making it quick and convenient for even the busiest patients. There’s no anesthesia used, and the average discomfort rating patients give SculpSure is 3.7 on a scale of 1-10. Most patients describe it as a slight tingling.
How many treatments are required?
Each patient’s case is individual and unique. We evaluate each patient to determine a treatment plan that supports the patient’s goals. Most patients require more than one treatment to achieve the results they desire.
How long does it take to see results?
Because the fat cells are destroyed but not eliminated by the SculpSure procedure, results are seen as the body is able to process and eliminate damaged fat cells. First results are generally visible around 6 weeks with peak results at 12 weeks.
Is SculpSure safe?
SculpSure is non-invasive and safe.
How long do results last?
The fat cells damaged and eliminated will never return. However, without proper diet and exercise, new fat can be deposited in the same area. Patients should discuss their goals with our staff who can assist them in developing a meal and exercise plan conducive to their overall health and well-being.
How long is recovery?
No recovery period is required following SculpSure and there are no restrictions in place when the patient leaves the office. Some patients have the SculpSure procedure done in the middle of a work day, while others go directly to the gym following their appointment.
What are the benefits of SculpSure?
The primary benefit of SculpSure is improved self-confidence. Many patients report that their clothes fit better and they feel comfortable wearing clothes they haven’t worn for years. Improved confidence can have a lasting effect on the patient’s career, relationships, and quality of life.
