What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is an advanced body contouring treatment using light-based lasers to disrupt fat cells in areas of the body, such as the abdomen and hips, where fat is hard to reduce. The result is a firmer, flatter abdomen and flanks.
SculpSure is a means of non-surgical fat reduction.
Benefits of SculpSure
In addition to reducing unwanted fat pockets in the abdomen and sides, SculpSure benefits people in that it:
- Has no recovery or downtime
- Does not require invasive surgeries
- Is not painful
- Is FDA approved
Who is a Good Candidate for SculpSure?
The procedure is ideally suited for patients with a BMI of less than 30 and that have stubborn fat deposits around their stomach and flanks. It is also suitable for patients who are unable to have surgery, patients who don’t want to undergo surgery, or patients who are unable to have any downtime. In some patients, the procedure is good for improving areas of irregularity from previous liposuction treatments.
If you are in decent shape yet have areas with unwanted pockets of fat that do not respond to your healthy lifestyle, you may be a candidate for SculpSure. It is important to understand that this treatment is not a substitute for proper diet and exercise or significant weight loss.
How Do I Prepare for My SculpSure Treatments?
There is no preparation for SculpSure. We recommend you schedule a consultation with Dr. Core to ensure SculpSure® is the best option to achieve your goals.
What is Involved with My SculpSure Treatments?
This treatment takes about 25 minutes per area, which is much faster than other non-invasive procedures. SculpSure® is pain-free, unlike other non-invasive procedures. SculpSure is non-surgical, so you will be able to drive home or go back to work the same day. There is no downtime with SculpSure. This is truly a procedure you can have done during your lunch break!
SculpSure treatments use highly concentrated light-based laser energy that targets fat cells in a specific area of the body. The energy heats fat tissue beneath the skin to a level that it breaks down over the next few weeks. The skin begins to contract during this process, leaving the targeted area flatter and more contoured.
SculpSure treatments typically take about 30 minutes and may be combined with other procedures. Most people get results with one treatment but may repeat the process if they need it for the desired result.
What to Expect After SculpSure
There is no downtime or recovery with SculpSure allowing you to go back to your daily activities. With this non-invasive treatment, the body sheds the fat over time. You may start seeing the results in as little as six weeks.
When Will I See the Results from SculpSure?
The full results from SculpSure® are seen after about 12 weeks post-treatment.
