SculpSure Non-Invasive Body & Submental Contouring Q & A
How does SculpSure work?
SculpSure uses an innovative, light-based 1060nm wavelength laser to effectively remove unwanted fat from problem areas, including the waistline, abdomen, flanks, thighs, bra line, back, under the chin, and neck. The system has multiple applicators that can be placed on several problem areas at once, resulting in a slimmer appearance in these specific target areas.
This laser fat reduction treatment delivers heat below the surface of the skin to destroy fat cells while using constant cooling technology to keep you comfortable. Fat cells are damaged by the heat and their residual material is then eliminated via your body’s own waste control system. The SculpSure system is safe for all skin types.
What can I expect during a treatment?
Even if you’re having multiple areas treated at the same time, each SculpSure session lasts about 25 minutes. SculpSure treatments are relatively comfortable. Some patients report mild warmth and cramping initially that typically resolves when the cooling cycle begins. Once the applicators are applied, many patients are able to read, listen to music, or watch television during the procedure.
What about recovery?
There is absolutely no downtime following this completely noninvasive procedure, meaning you can return to work or other normal activities once you leave the doctor’s office. You may experience mild tenderness, swelling or redness in the treated area that typically resolves after a few days. Side effects with SculpSure are otherwise rare.
How long before I see results?
While some patients can start to see results in as little as six weeks, the best results typically occur at 12 weeks. In clinical studies, patients experienced a 24% reduction in fat, though individual results may vary. It’s not useful for overall weight loss but the SculpSuremethod is typically quite effective for patients who desire the benefits of body contouring but don’t have time for the recovery period or downtime associated with surgical procedures.
How many Sculpsure treatments are recommended?
Most patients see optimal results with at least two treatments to each of their problem areas. Your clinician will explain what you can expect during and after treatments and help you determine which problem areas might respond best to this innovative body contouring system. To help reduce your cost, Grossman Plastic Surgery also offers specially priced packages for repeat treatments. For more information, visit our SculpSure Calabasas page.
