Body Contouring with SculpSure FAQs

SculpSure is a non-invasive, light based body contouring treatment that targets and destroys fat cells, for a slimmer appearance in areas such as the belly, sides, back, thighs, and under the chin. Let’s discuss more about what SculpSure does and what you can expect during and after treatment.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure uses light-based technology to target and destroy fat cells. With this treatment, you’ll receive natural-looking and long-lasting results without surgery and with no downtime. This body contouring procedure aims to reduce fat under the chin, in the abdomen, back, thighs, and love handles (sides). Immediately following your appointment, you will be able to return to your regular routine. Treatments can be done in just 25 minutes!

How does the process work?

Before your treatment, we will schedule your initial consultation, where we will discuss the areas of your body that you’d like to address and create a custom treatment plan.

During the treatment, you will lie down or sit as SculpSure’s applicators are attached to your skin. The applicators use heat to damage fat cells and cooling technology to help with comfort during the entire procedure. Heat is only used underneath the dermis, so there is no damage to your skin.

After the treatment, the heat-damaged fat cells will naturally leave your body over several weeks as your lymphatic system does its job. Once the damaged cells leave your body, they are gone.

What can I expect?

When the treatment starts, initially you will feel a cooling sensation to help keep your skin comfortable. The cooling will be on the entire treatment, while the laser cycles on and off, raising the temperature of the fat cells. Most patients feel a deep warmth and/or tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment. After the 25-minute treatment is finished, you can resume your daily activities, as there is no post-treatment down time.

Most people see the best results when they receive a series of treatments. We will follow your custom treatment plan to achieve best results.

Are results permanent?

While individual results may vary, neither submental or subcutaneous fat will return once it has been eliminated. The elimination is permanent. However, new fat cells can grow in its place if proper diet and exercise plans are not followed.

Who is SculpSure recommended for?

Whether you’re just looking to remove small, stubborn pockets of fat or more significant curves, this laser procedure can help sculpt your body. People who diet and exercise regularly tend to see faster, more effective results. Best results will be seen in people with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or less for body treatments. For submental (under the chin) treatments, a BMI of <43 is recommended.
