SculpSure is an innovative, non-invasive approach to fat loss and body contouring. Laser energy targets and permanently eliminates fat cells in the belly, love handles, back, thighs, and under the chin in just 25 minutes. Multiple areas can be targeted during a single appointment, and the procedure can be safely used on a variety of body types. The best results, however, are seen in those patients with a BMI under 30.
How Does SculpSure Work?
Noninvasive applicators are applied to the area to be treated. Laser energy targets pockets of fat under the skin, slowly raising the temperature to 107.6 degrees Fahrenheit, which is hot enough to destroy fat cells without damaging other tissues.
Over the next three months, the body processes these fat cells until they are permanently eliminated. Some patients find that they need up to 4 treatments spaced at least 6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
What Should I Expect During Treatment?
Most patients first feel a cooling sensation, which helps pre-treat the skin to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. As the laser energy targets the cells, there is an intermittent tingling sensation, followed by more cooling to help aid in recovery.
How Long Does It Take To Recover from a SculpSure treatment?
The skin can be slightly red post-procedure, and some patients report mild soreness or stiffness in the treatment area over the next few days. However, internal recovery from SculpSure is immediate. No anesthesia is used, and there are no incisions. Therefore, minimal downtime is needed. Patients usually find that they can resume daily activities upon leaving the office after the procedure.
When Can I See Results?
A more toned and contoured body can be seen at the six-week mark, but the final results are most visible at about 12 weeks, which is the amount of time it takes for the body to completely process and eliminate the excess fat cells.
How Long Do SculpSure Results Last?
Forever! Once the fat cells have been processed and removed by the body’s lymphatic system, they’re gone forever. It’s important to note that it’s always possible to grow new fat cells, so following a healthy diet and exercise plan after the procedure will aid the results.
Is SculpSure Safe?
SculpSure is FDA-approved and completely safe. Check with your primary care physician before scheduling a body contouring procedure like SculpSure.
