What is SculpSure®?
SculpSure® is a light-based body contouring treatment that is FDA-approved to eliminate fat
from problem areas of the body through a minimally-invasive, painless procedure. While it is primarily used to tighten and tone the midsection, it can also be implemented to address excess fat on the thighs, knees, and arms.
How Does it Work?
SculpSure® uses the gentle power of laser energy to target excess fat at its source — the fat cells. During treatment, laser energy is directed at the patient’s desired treatment area. This energy passes through the uppermost layer of the skin and is absorbed by fat cells as heat. As these fat cells begin to heat up, they eventually rupture and die. Over the six to twelve weeks following treatment, these ruptured fat cells are removed from the body, gradually revealing tighter, more toned skin.
What is the Treatment Process Like?
Each SculpSure® treatment takes about 25 minutes to complete. While patients should expect to feel an alternation between warming and cooling sensations throughout the length of treatment, this feeling is often described as comfortable and tolerable. Following a SculpSure® procedure, patients experience absolutely no significant downtime. Side effects like mild tenderness and firmness are common, but usually subside within a week of receiving treatment.
How Long will my Results Last?
During a SculpSure® treatment, fat cells are physically destroyed; over time, the removal of these fat cells results in both a visible and internal reduction of fat. Because of this, SculpSure® brings patients fat reduction results that last for as long as patients are willing to take the dietary and exercise measures necessary to maintain a steady weight.
Am I a Candidate for Treatment?
Nearly anyone interested in sculpting and tightening some of her or his stubborn areas of excess fat is a potential candidate for a SculpSure® treatment. Because this procedure is entirely non-invasive, it is completely safe for use on the vast majority of patients. However, it is important for interested individuals to keep in mind that this procedure works best on patients interested in losing 20 or fewer pounds of fat.
