SculpSure Q & A
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a completely non-invasive laser treatment designed to destroy stubborn fat in areas resistant to diet and exercise.
How does SculpSure work?
The SculpSure laser uses innovative technology to apply energy to fat cells beneath the surface of the skin, without affecting the surface of the skin. This energy increases the temperature of your fat cells, damaging and destroying them.
In the weeks following the treatment, your body metabolizes the damaged fat cells, and flushes them from your system, resulting in up to 24% reduction in fat in the treatment area.
Can the fat cells return after SculpSure treatment?
While natural weight loss only reduces the size of fat cells, SculpSure permanently destroys and removes fat cells from your body. These fat cells can never return. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and an active lifestyle following treatment to prevent weight gain.
Does SculpSure hurt?
SculpSure isn’t painful, and because it’s completely non-invasive, incisions and anesthesia aren’t required. Because SculpSure protects your skin while heating the fat cells beneath it, all you feel is intermittent tingling throughout the treatment.
How much time away from work is required after SculpSure?
There’s no time away from work required following your SculpSure treatment. In fact, many patients receive the treatment during a break and return to work right away, making it convenient for even the busiest patients.
Can men receive SculpSure?
Yes, SculpSure is for both men and women. SculpSure is especially effective in the abdominal area, where many men carry extra weight.
Am I a strong candidate for SculpSure?
SculpSure isn’t for people who are underweight, obese, or significantly overweight. If you’re healthy and suffering from stubborn fat in a few localized areas, you may be a good candidate for SculpSure.
How many SculpSure treatments are required?
Just one treatment can decrease fat in the treatment area by up to 24%. Some patients choose to treat several treatment areas, and other patients require more than one treatment in the same treatment area to remove a larger volume of fat.
