What is SculpSure?
Body Contouring Q & A
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a device that uses laser energy to heat fat cells beneath your skin’s surface. The heat destroys the integrity of the cells, so they die and are eliminated by your body’s lymphatic system.
How does SculpSure work?
During SculpSure treatment, Dr. Buna applies the laser energy to the target areas. SculpSure raises the temperature of the fat cells, which damages their structure and causes them to become inactive. Over the course of three months, these cells are processed by your natural waste removal system and eliminated from your body.
What areas can be treated with SculpSure?
SculpSure is FDA-cleared to treat the most common areas that hold on to fat, despite your efforts to lose weight. These include:
Under the chin
SculpSure is for targeted fat loss and not comprehensive weight loss. Your SculpSure results are complemented by healthy eating and regular physical activity.
How soon will I see results from SculpSure?
You may start to notice results from SculpSure treatments as soon as six weeks following your session. Optimal results show after 12 weeks, however, as your body needs time to eradicate the compromised fat cells. The technology boasts a 90% patient satisfaction rate.
Do SculpSure treatments hurt?
During a SculpSure treatment, you feel cooling alternated with bursts of heat and tingling as the laser cycles on and off. The warmth and other sensations are generally not painful, and most patients tolerate the treatment well. Each session lasts just 25 minutes.
How many sessions will I need and how long do the results last?
During a SculpSure treatment, up to 24% of cells in a treated area are destroyed. Many people opt for multiple sessions to achieve the results they desire.
SculpSure is a permanent fat removal system. With diet and exercise, your fat cells shrink but can plump up again if you eat too many calories. But with SculpSure, the treated fat cells are permanently destroyed and cannot return.
What kind of downtime is required with SculpSure treatments?
SculpSure is noninvasive, so you have no blood loss, injections, or risk of infection. You can return to your daily activities right after your treatment with no downtime required.
