SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a body contouring system that reduces fat in stubborn areas, such as your love handles and belly. This noninvasive procedure has been shown to destroy up to 24% of fat cells in the treatment area, all without the risks or downtime involved with surgery.

How does it work?

SculpSure targets fat cells with laser energy. The heat from the laser irreparably damages the fat cells. Within 3 months, the body releases destroyed fat cells through the lymphatic system.

Who can SculpSure help?

SculpSure is especially helpful for people who already take good care of themselves through a healthy diet and routine exercise, yet still struggle to lose fat in the trunk or abdominal area.

What does it feel like?

SculpSure treatments are not painful. You’ll likely experience a tingling sensation off and on through your session, which tends to be well tolerated.

How long does it take?

Each SculpSure treatments takes about 25 minutes, in an in-office setting. Within 6 weeks, as your body begins to expel destroyed fat cells, you may begin to notice visible results. Full results are typically seen over the course of 12 weeks.

Is there any after-care?

Because SculpSure is a very gentle procedure, you can get back to your daily activities immediately after your treatment. There is no downtime needed for recovery.

Will the fat come back?

Left untouched, the number of fat cells in the body tends to remain the same throughout life. Once fat cells are destroyed, however, they do not regenerate. In other words, the cells destroyed during your treatment will not return, and the results are permanent. To make the most of your results, stick to your active lifestyle and nutritious diet.

Are there any risks?

SculpSure is a very safe system that uses lasers to penetrate your skin. The surface of your skin is not affected, so there is no risk of damage or indented skin, which can derive from other fat-targeting systems. Occasionally, people develop small nodules that form as the fat diminishes. These effects resolve on their own over time.
