SculpSure Q & A

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring involves using a laser to treat fat in areas of the body that do not respond well to exercise, diet, or other weight loss techniques. Small pouches or deposits of fatty tissue can remain no matter how hard a person tries to lose the weight. During the body contouring procedure, a laser is used to target the fatty deposits, heating the cells to a higher-than-normal temperature, which causes them to break down. Over the span of several weeks, the fat cells continue to degrade and are eventually reabsorbed by the body. The results are long lasting and are fully visible after approximately 12 weeks.

How Does the SculpSure Technique Work?

The SculpSure technique uses laser technology to target specific fat deposits throughout the body. It is ideal for pockets of fat found on the hips, thighs, abdomen, lower back, and upper arms. The procedure can also enhance the appearance of a person with only a small amount of stubborn fat in hard-to-reach areas.

The laser procedure normally takes 25-30 minutes and targets these hard-to-reach areas. The laser reaches below the skin to heat the fat cells, irreparably damaging them. The cells will gradually break down and be reabsorbed by the body. Any residue or excess waste is then flushed from the body and eliminated. The SculpSure technique offers noticeable results in approximately six weeks, with the final results being visible in twelve weeks.

How Long Will the Effects of the Procedure Last?

The SculpSure technique offers long-lasting, and in many cases, permanent results. Individuals who opt to have the SculpSure procedure do so because they’ve already made healthy lifestyle changes, lost a significant amount of weight, and are trying to add definition to their physical appearance. One of the main benefits of SculpSure is that once the fat cells have been targeted and destroyed, they won’t reappear unless the person begins to gain weight.
