SculpSure Body Contouring Q & A

What is SculpSure body contouring?

SculpSure body contouring is a nonsurgical, noninvasive treatment that uses laser energy to reduce stubborn deposits of fat. It’s an effective treatment for permanently decreasing the fat on your stomach and thighs that won’t come off through diet and exercise.

SculpSure offers long-lasting results and is an effective alternative to surgical methods for slimming your body and improving your confidence.

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure body contouring technology is a non-invasive body contouring system that uses laser energy to permanently destroy up to 24% of fat cells in the treated area without surgery.

What areas of the body can SculpSure treat?

SculpSure can be used almost anywhere there is “pinchable” fat. Commonly treated areas include your:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Flanks
  • Inner and outer thighs

The treatment is also effective for submental fat destruction, which treats a double chin. SculpSure can successfully treat many other areas, including bra fat and back fat, as well.

What happens during a SculpSure treatment?

Dr. Sherman performs the procedure in a comfortable office environment. He affixes the SculpSure band around the treatment area, and you initially feel a cooling sensation to prevent discomfort during the treatment. When the laser treatment starts, you feel warmth or tingling sensations as the laser energy heats your fat cells.

Treatment typically takes up to 25 minutes.

How many SculpSure treatments will I need?

Dr. Sherman recommends at least two treatments to each area for optimal results. He includes two sessions for each treated area in his price quotes.

When will I see results from my SculpSure procedure?

Following treatment, you can return to your normal activities immediately. You may experience common side effects in the treatment area, including:

  • Swelling
  • Firmness
  • Tenderness
  • Bruising

These side effects should resolve on their own within a few days.

You won’t see results for at least six weeks. Optimal results begin to appear at 12 weeks, as it takes that long for your body to evacuate the destroyed fat cells. Once those cells are destroyed, they are gone forever.

Is SculpSure right for me?

SculpSure is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise.
