Patient Frequently Asked Questions
What is SculpSure® ? SculpSure® is a non-invasive body contouring system for the reduction of stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen and love handles. The 25 minute procedure destroys up to 24% of treated fat cells without surgery.
Is SculpSure® right for me? SculpSure® is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise.
How many treatments will I need? Most patients see results with as little as one treatment. However, you may wish to have additional treatments based on your desired results. Ask your treatment provider about the best treatment plan for you.
What should I expect during the treatment? Most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated.
When will I see results? Many patients start to see results as early as 6 weeks following treatment as the body begins to evacuate the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks.
How long will the results last? Treated fat cells are permanently destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate.
How long before I can resume normal activities? There is no downtime with SculpSure® so you can have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately.
What is the difference between fat loss and weight loss? The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout adult life. After the SculpSure® treatment, the destroyed fat cells will never return. However, as we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller, but typically do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas.
