SculpSure Body Contouring Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an innovative, FDA-cleared body contouring system that permanently eliminates fat cells. In the hands of a trained practitioner, SculpSure can refine the shape of your body by eliminating problem areas where fat is stored.

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure uses laser energy to heat the fat cells that lie beneath the surface of your skin. A cooling system keeps your skin at a comfortable temperature during treatment sessions.

That heat damages the structural integrity of the targeted fat cells. Nearly 25% of fat cells treated with SculpSure are destroyed.  

Because the damaged fat cells are no longer capable of storing fat, your body processes and eliminates them through your lymphatic system. After a period of about three months, those damaged cells are no longer in your body, and can’t regenerate.

Is SculpSure a painful process?

SculpSure sessions take around 25 minutes and are generally well-tolerated. During that time, you’ll experience a cooling sensation on the surface of your skin. Meanwhile, you may notice a sensation of warmth and/or tingling in the tissues just under your skin.

There’s no need for anesthesia or pain medications, and no recovery time once your sessions are complete. You can return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment.

Which areas can be treated with SculpSure?

SculpSure is perfect for “spot-treating” areas where stubborn deposits of fat linger, even after diet and exercise efforts. Some of the areas that respond well to SculpSure sessions include:

  • Upper and lower stomach
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Thighs

In addition to these areas, SculpSure recently received FDA clearance for use in the area just beneath your chin.

Will SculpSure help me lose weight?

Weight loss and body contouring both focus on fat cells, but in very different ways. Weight loss works by using the energy stored in the fat cells throughout your body, which reduces their size. Body contouring permanently removes fat cells, refining the shape of the treated area.

It’s important to note that while SculpSure can reduce the number of fat cells in your body, it’s not an effective weight loss tool. SculpSure targets areas where fat deposits are preventing you from reaching your body contouring goals.

Eliminating fat cells in those problem areas creates a more sculpted appearance. While SculpSure won’t help you lose weight, it can be a great way to refine the shape of your body once you’ve reached your weight loss goals and achieved a healthy, stable weight.
