SculpSure Q & A

Is SculpSure® right for me?

SculpSure body contouring is perfect for you if pregnancy has stretched out your tummy or if diet and exercise have failed to minimize your pooch, muffin top, love handles, or thighs.

The procedure targets those stubborn fat deposits and smooths out your skin once and for all. The treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical, so it’s a great option if you’re hesitant to go under the knife.

What is the SculpSure procedure like?

SculpSure is a non-surgical laser treatment that targets stubborn body fat. Its lasers eliminate fat cells by heating them up until they’re damaged.

Once the fat cells are broken down, your body's lymphatic system flushes them out over the course of about three months. Once those fat cells are gone, it's permanent!

During the procedure, you receive a cooling treatment to help counter the heat of the laser. Patients typically describe a highly tolerable tingling, burning, or cramping sensation during the laser treatment.

Your aesthetician can adjust the energy output of the laser according to your tolerance level. You might experience some slight bruising and swelling over the course of the week following the procedure.

During the 25-minute procedure, the laser destroys fat cells under your skin's surface, without affecting the skin’s surface. That means you’re left with no visible signs that you’ve had anything done.

When you leave the office, you can jump right back into your daily activities. No downtime is necessary for recovery.

When will I see results of SculpSure?

By six weeks, you should notice some changes in your body. By 12 weeks, you should have your final results. You might need multiple treatments to help you reach the most favorable results.

As a beneficial side effect, the treatment encourages your body to produce collagen and elastin to tighten skin even more!
