What is SculpSure?
SculpSure® is an FDA-approved, non-surgical laser body contouring device that helps reduce stubborn fat in diet and exercise-resistant areas. SculpSure® is a breakthrough development in the area of body contouring. While other comparable body contouring procedures take up to an hour to treat, SculpSure only takes 25 minutes!
What Are the Benefits?
- No Surgery or Scars
- No Anesthesia
- No Suction
- Little to No Downtime or Pain*
- Effective on All Skin Types
- Can Treat Multiple Areas at Once
How Does SculpSure® Work?
SculpSure® utilizes controlled, light-based (laser) technology to precisely target and break up stubborn fat cells under the skin. During treatment, you will experience cooling with intervals of deep warmth, resulting in an intermittent tingling sensation. Contact cooling is on throughout the entire treatment, keeping the surface of your skin comfortably cool. After a few minutes, you will start to feel warmth, which will build to a period of deep heating, which shocks the fat cells, causing them to decay over the course of the next few weeks. This deep heating sensation lets you know that the treatment is targeting your fat cells!*
How Long Do SculpSure® Treatments Take?
Because the SculpSure® system has four applicators, multiple body areas can be treated within the same session. For example, other options require an hour for each flank, as the machines have just one applicator. With SculpSure®, we are able to reduce fat on both flanks in one short procedure.*
Does SculpSure® Hurt?
Unlike many other non-invasive body contouring procedures, there is no suction component involved, and there is no damage to the surrounding tissue. Most patients describe the procedure as “wearing a heating pad” on the area being treated.* The SculpSure® device is made with “Contact Cooling™” technology for maximum patient comfort.
Who Are the Best Candidates for SculpSure®?
SculpSure® is the ideal non-invasive body contouring treatment for people with trouble spots that seem resistant to diet and exercise. While it can be performed for larger volume areas by doing multiple treatments over time, it is ideal for the average person at or close to their ideal body weight. Those who want to target specific, localized areas of excess fat with little to no downtime, scars, pain or excessive costs associated with surgical procedures should look into this treatment. Similar to our other body contouring procedures, SculpSure® is not a weight loss solution and can only remove existing fat. It cannot prevent the formation of new fat cells.*
SculpSure® Recovery & Results
The SculpSure® procedure safely delivers precisely controlled waves of heating and cooling to gently and effectively reduce the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells die and overtime are naturally absorbed and removed from the body, helping you achieve a slimmer appearance. Results may be noticeable within six to eight weeks, and optimal results may be seen within twelve weeks. Depending on the size and bulk of fat present, some patients may require a series of two to four treatments to achieve their fully desired results.* Assuming you maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle, the fat should not return or migrate to other parts of your body. SculpSure® patients also report that the skin in the treated area feels tighter and firmer, for an added bonus!*
Patients may experience mild redness, tenderness, swelling or tissue firmness in the treated areas, which may last up to two weeks. Generally, all that is needed to relieve tenderness is a cold compress and/or acetaminophen. Gently massaging the area twice a day for five to ten minutes may enhance your results. Normal daily activity, including exercise, may be resumed immediately post-treatment. Light physical activity, along with proper hydration, will help mobilize fat via the lymphatic system and improve your results.*
