SculpSure Body Contouring


What is SculpSure®?

SculpSure is a laser treatment that uses targeted laser energy to heat only fat cells to a temperature that destroys them while leaving the skin and surrounding tissues unaffected.Compared to other fat-removal procedures — such as liposuction, fat freezing or similar laser treatments — SculpSure is a safer and more comfortable procedure. The treatment is customizable and tightens skin, so your curves are smoother and have no dimpling or pitting. When the treatment begins, the device will be placed on the targeted area. The laser goes through cycles, heating, and cooling during the treatment. This cycling keeps your skin comfortable while still allowing the fat cells to be super-heated. You may feel a deep tingling or a sensation of warmth. 

What is the SculpSure body contouring process?

The treatment takes 25-30 minutes, as the heat from the procedure damages the fat cells beyond repair. Over the next three months, your body will eliminate those cells through your lymphatic system. You’ll likely start to see some results in a matter of weeks. Depending on your goals, you may need more than one treatment. Before undergoing the procedure, one of our physicians will talk to you about what you want and should expect from SculpSure treatments.

How fast is SculpSure body contouring treatment?

Compared with other body sculpting procedures, SculpSure is fast. Treatments can usually happen in less than a half-hour, and there is no recovery time necessary. Some people refer to it as a “lunch hour treatment” because you can have the procedure during lunch and return to work immediately. Once the fat cells have been destroyed and removed through your body’s natural processes, they are gone for good.

Is SculpSure body contouring like surgery?

One of the best aspects of SculpSure for fat elimination is that it is nonsurgical. The device sits on top of your skin during the procedure. This means you do not have the associated surgical risks of infection, recovery care or pain. Studies of the procedure show that you’re likely to see about a 24% reduction in fat in the treated area after one treatment. You’ll see changes in as early as 6 weeks with full results in about 12 weeks.
