SculpSure Q & A
What is noninvasive body contouring?
Noninvasive body contouring permanently eliminates fat without surgery. This type of procedure works best for people who are close to their weight-loss goals, but who still have localized areas of stubborn fat.
Which body areas are treated with SculpSure?
Studies show that SculpSure safely and effectively eliminates localized fat. As a result, it’s FDA-cleared to remove fat from six body areas permanently: your abdomen, flanks, back, inner thighs, outer thighs, and under your chin.
How does SculpSure work?
The SculpSure laser operates at a controlled wavelength that lets the laser pass through your skin to reach the targeted area of fat. The laser doesn’t harm your skin; the fat cells absorb it.
As fat absorbs laser energy, it’s heated to the exact temperature needed to destroy cells. After the cells break down, your body naturally eliminates them through your lymph system, which means that fat is gone for good.
What should you expect during SculpSure treatment?
The SculpSure comes with four applicators that are flat on the bottom and rest against your skin as they send out laser beams.
The team at Avante Laser & MediSpa covers your treatment area with applicators. When all four are used, your entire abdomen can be treated at one time.
The applicators have a built-in cooling system that keeps your skin at a comfortable temperature. During your 25-minute session, the laser turns on and off to maintain the proper temperature inside fat cells, so you’ll feel cycles of warmth alternating with cooling.
Will you need time to recover?
Your skin may be slightly red, but you won’t need recovery time. You can get back to your routine as soon as your session ends.
When will you see results?
Following one treatment with SculpSure, you can lose 24% of the fat in the areas treated.* You won’t see immediate results, however, because it takes time for your body to clear away the fat cells. You may see the difference in six weeks, but optimal results appear in about 12 weeks.
