SculpSure is the first FDA-approved laser treatment in the world for non-invasive lipolysis of the flanks, back and abdomen. The visionary, controlled light-based technology is the perfect solution for patients who want to get rid of stubborn body fat without undergoing surgery or downtime. It has been clinically proven to work, with trials showing a 24% reduction in body fat after a single session.
How SculpSure Works
SculpSure breaks down and eliminates fat by heating unwanted fat cells with a laser to a temperature that causes lipolysis, or simply put, causes the fat cells to break down. The technology uses special applicators that are placed flat on the skin that are responsible for heating the fat layer while simultaneously cooling the surface of the skin for enhanced patient comfort. In the following 6-12 weeks, fat cells are naturally eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system.
When treatment starts, an initial cooling sensation will be felt along with intermittent waves of warmth. There is no pain during or after treatment, plus, patients have the added benefit of no down time. Immediately following treatment, patients are free to return to their normal routine.
When Will I See Results?
You will start to see results approximately 6 weeks after you undergo treatment, although it can take up to 12 weeks for you to see the full effects of the SculpSure treatment. The fat cells that are destroyed during treatment will not regenerate. Providing you maintain a healthy diet combined with a regular exercise routine, you can expect the fat to stay off.
Are There Any Side Effects?
There are no long-term side effects associated with SculpSure. Occasionally patients may notice some redness or tenderness surrounding treated areas, but this should only last for a few days.
