Most people are plagued by some amount of troublesome body fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Stubborn fat deposits can make it difficult to find flattering clothes, and not everyone has the desire or leisure time to undergo major body contouring surgery such as liposuction. SculpSure® is a revolutionary, FDA-approved laser treatment for fat elimination, and it can address unwanted fat throughout the body without the need for surgery or extensive recovery. SculpSure® damages fat cells so that the body can absorb them over the course of three months, producing painless, natural-looking results
SculpSure® can reduce excess adipose tissue in the following areas:
- Inner and outer thighs
- Submental (under-chin) area
SculpSure® is a non-invasive treatment that takes only 25 minutes per target area, and because it requires no anesthesia, it can be performed in-office rather than at a surgical facility. The four SculpSure® applicators can be arranged in a variety of configurations depending on the patient’s needs. The device is applied to the treatment site and delivers hyperthermic energy to the fat cells, disrupting these cells with the heat. Continuous contact cooling occurs simultaneously, keeping the skin safe from harm and maintaining overall patient comfort. The destroyed fat cells are dissolved by the body’s lymphatic system, and a slimmer, more sculpted form remains. Final results are visible between six and 12 weeks after treatment. Patients can lose up to 24 percent of fat in the treatment area.
Are the results from SculpSure® permanent?
Yes, the fat cells targeted by SculpSure® are permanently destroyed; however, weight fluctuations, aging, and pregnancy can contribute to the growth of existing fat cells. It is important to adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle to enjoy SculpSure® results long term.
Is SculpSure® treatment painful?
No, the majority of SculpSure® patients report feeling comfortable during the procedure. A few possible side effects are redness, sweating, tenderness, and tingling. These are usually temporary, resolving within a few hours following treatment.
How long after SculpSure® treatment may I return to work?
Immediately after SculpSure®, you will be able to go back to work as well as your regular activities. There is no downtime or recovery required.
Can I treat multiple parts of my body during the same day?
Absolutely! SculpSure® can safely treat more than one part of the body that has unwanted stubborn fat deposits.
