Sculpsure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is the first FDA-cleared laser designed specifically to remove stubborn fat from your body. This state-of-the-art, noninvasive treatment uses a light-based laser to penetrate the surface of your skin and destroy the fat cells.

SculpSure helps remove excess fat from the following areas:

  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Stomach
  • Neck
  • Abdomen

The practice recommends massaging the treated area for one to two weeks following the treatment because it can help with the elimination process of the fat cells from the body.

How does SculpSure treatment work?

The clinician uses four flat, non-suction laser applicator frames that rest on the surface of your desired fat-loss area. The laser’s specific wavelength has a high affinity for fat cells. Because of this, the laser’s energy raises the temperature beneath your dermis to kill your fat cells.

After just one treatment, patients can achieve up to a 24% permanent reduction in fat at the treatment site. The clinicians recommend two to three treatments to achieve the best results and to further reduce the fat in the targeted area. After two to three treatments, fat is reduced by an average of 42% in targeted areas.

The great benefit of the SculpSure treatment is its continuous contact cooling system, which makes the treatment tolerable.

What can I expect following SculpSure treatment?

The entire treatment is relatively fast lasting 25 minutes and can treat four body areas in one session. Because the treatment is noninvasive, you can immediately return to your daily activities. Side effects can include redness, soreness, stinging, or cramping in the targeted area. However, these symptoms should subside within 24-48 hours following treatment.

While some patients can see results in as little as four weeks, it typically takes weeks for your results to become apparent. In addition, the clinician recommends drinking plenty of water and staying hydrated following your treatment to aid in the removal of fat cells through the lymphatic system.
