Body Contouring Q & A

The Family Practice

What is SculpSure body contouring?

SculpSure body contouring is a noninvasive, and effective state-of-the-art laser treatment that destroys fat cells. If you’re healthy and still have areas of resistant fat, then SculpSure could be the treatment for you.

Who is a good SculpSure candidate?

SculpSure treatment is ideal for people who have some excess fat, yet aren’t excessively overweight. This is the first FDA-cleared laser treatment to eliminate excess fat on specific areas of the body, such as:

  • Back
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Neck
  • Flanks

The practice recommends you to exercise at least 30 minutes a day three to five days a week following treatment as it can dramatically improve results.

What is the science behind SculpSure body contouring?

A practice uses this state-of-the-art cutting-edge technology because it destroys fat cells while keeping you cool, resulting in a quick experience.

The specific wavelength of the laser has a high affinity for fat cells under the skin, leaving the skin’s surface unharmed. Once the temperature of the laser rises, it damages the structural integrity of the fat cells.

Following your first treatment, the damaged fat cells are eliminated from the body via the lymphatic system. This allows you to see results from the treatment in as little as six weeks, while optimal results tend to take 10-12 weeks. SculpSure is shown to be effective at destroying up to 24% of fat cells after one treatment, and up to 42% after two or more treatments.

What is the difference between SculpSure and other body contouring treatments?

CoolSculpting® and CoolSmooth use intensive cold to destroy your fat cells, while UltraShape® uses ultrasound waves to destroy your fat cells. Liposuction is also effective, yet most patients seem to want to avoid surgery if necessary. Although these treatments are options, they are slower, can cause pain, require you to have downtime, and aren’t as effective as SculpSure.

SculpSure is a fast procedure and has zero downtime. The handheld devices help target smaller and more specific areas for fat loss.
