SculpSure is a laser-based treatment to remove fat from specific areas of your body like the belly, back, waist (or “love handles”), and thighs noninvasively, without incisions or surgery. Called laser lipolysis, SculpSure uses patented laser heat technology to target the fat layers underneath the skin, breaking down the walls of the fat cells and liquefying them, so your body can carry the debris away over time. SculpSure is the first laser lipolysis system to receive FDA clearance for noninvasive fat removal.
SculpSure uses special applicators to administer the laser energy to the treatment zone. Depending on the area that’s being treated, you might either recline on your back or be positioned in a special chair to make it easier to reach your flanks or thighs.
The applicators are attached to a strap that’s secured around your body to keep the applicators in their proper positions throughout the treatment. The applicator itself includes a cooling feature that “kicks in” to keep your skin cool while the laser heats up the fat tissue. During treatment, you might notice mild cramping or tingling as the laser energy heats up and destroys the fat cells in the deeper layers of tissue. Sessions last about 25 minutes. Afterward, you might have some tenderness in the area, but you’ll be able to go back to your regular routines right away.
You can expect to see the initial results of your treatment about six weeks after your session, once the fat cells have been whisked away by your body’s waste disposal system. Improvements will continue over the next six weeks or so, with maximum results visible at about 12 weeks after your treatment.
That depends on the amount of fat that’s being treated and the results you want to achieve. Many patients get the results they want with a single treatment, while others find a second treatment can help them get the outcome they desire.
Because SculpSure destroys fat cells, the results of your treatment are considered permanent. Of course, you’ll still want to follow a healthy diet and stay physically active to prevent fat from building up in neighboring areas so your results continue to look their best.
