SculpSure Body Contouring Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an FDA-cleared, noninvasive laser treatment for fat reduction. The laser light technology targets fat cells under your skin and heats them up sufficiently to damage them, without harming the surface of your skin. Your body then disposes of the destroyed fat cells naturally through your lymphatic system.

The procedure is not designed for weight loss, but rather fat reduction, in areas that no amount of diet and exercise seem to touch. From the moment you’re born, you have a certain number of fat cells, and that number doesn’t fluctuate throughout the course of your life. When you gain or lose weight, you’re not gaining or losing fat cells, your existing fat cells are increasing and decreasing in size.

SculpSure works to target and destroy these fat cells, permanently reducing the number of cells in your body.

What areas does SculpSure treat?

SculpSure was cleared by the FDA to treat the following areas:

  • Your abdomen
  • Your flanks, or love handles
  • Your inner and outer thighs
  • Your back

How many SculpSure Treatments do I need?

One customized SculpSure session takes approximately 25 minutes and, depending on your goals, may be all you need. If you’re tackling several areas, or a larger area, Dr. Villa discusses the best approach with you, which may include additional sessions.

There’s no downtime associated with the SculpSure treatment, allowing you to get back to your normal activities immediately after each session.

When will I see results from the SculpSure procedure?

SculpSure works by destroying fat cells under your skin. Immediately after your treatment, your body gets to work to absorb and eventually eliminate these fat cells, which typically takes six to 12 weeks.

Is SculpSure safe?

SculpSure is a noninvasive procedure that carries little risk, as opposed to invasive surgical solutions that leave you open to infection. SculpSure works from above your skin to heat your fat cells underneath without causing damage to the surface area. SculpSure also works on all body and skin types.
