SculpSure Q & A

East Side Medical Practice

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an innovative laser body contouring treatment that melts your unwanted fat. In clinical studies, each SculpSure session destroys up to 24%* of the targeted fat. It’s FDA-approved to target nearly every trouble spot on your body, including your:

  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Double chin

SculpSure has a unique four-headed applicator that your doctor can adjust and position to fit a trouble spot precisely to ensure the laser energy hits your unwanted fat cells.

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure produces specific wavelengths of laser energy that bypass the surface of your skin to target your subcutaneous fat cells. The energy converts to heat, which damages the structure and integrity of the cells.

Then over several weeks, your body processes and removes the damaged fat cells through your lymphatic system with other waste products. You should start to notice a change in your body shape after six weeks, with full results emerging by 12 weeks.

Who is a good candidate for SculpSure?

If you’re close to your ideal body weight and have stubborn pockets of fat that you can’t get rid of through dieting and exercise, you’re likely a good candidate for SculpSure. It’s FDA approved for fat removal on adults and is most effective when you have a healthy BMI, but you need a final push to get rid of a trouble spot.

What happens during a SculpSure treatment?

SculpSure treatments take only 25 minutes, and they’re painless. After your doctor straps the applicator to your body, you simply relax while the lasers destroy your fat cells. Many patients take advantage of this quiet time to nap, read, or catch up on emails.

You may notice a warming sensation during the treatment. However, SculpSure is equipped with a cooling device to regulate the temperature of your skin to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

Are the effects of SculpSure permanent?

SculpSure helps your body permanently remove fat cells. As long as you maintain a healthy body weight, you’ll keep your results. If you gain weight, your body can produce new fat cells, and your existing fat can expand.
