SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure uses laser-based technology that permanently destroys fat cells in specific treatment areas. It requires no surgery, incisions, stitches, blood loss, or recovery, and has no risk of infection. It works by heating the fat cells to a temperature that destroys their integrity, so they eventually die off. Your body’s natural lymphatic system gets rid of the damaged fat cells over time to reveal a slimmer, more-toned you. It’s safe, effective, and FDA cleared.

What areas can SculpSure treat?

SculpSure isn’t for comprehensive weight loss. Instead, it treats particular “problem” areas. These include:

  • Belly
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Under the chin

Who is a candidate for SculpSure treatments?

If you’re close to your ideal weight, but still have areas that are resistant to fat loss, you’re a good candidate for SculpSure. It works for both men and women and is ideal for clients who don’t want to deal with the risks and downtime associated with fat-removal surgery.

Dr. Anderson can help you determine if SculpSure is the right treatment to help you meet your aesthetic goals.

Do SculpSure treatments hurt?

During treatment, you feel a mild warmth as the laser energy passes through your skin. Some patients describe a tingling sensation, but it’s generally well-tolerated. You also experience very few side effects, although you may have temporary, mild redness, swelling, and tenderness at treatment sites. You can return to your daily activities immediately after a SculpSure session.

When will I see the results of SculpSure?

You may begin to notice the positive effects of SculpSure treatments after just six weeks as the damaged fat cells clear from your body. Optimal results are visible after 12 weeks. To achieve the results you desire, you may need additional treatments in the same or different areas. Dr. Anderson can help you create a treatment plan that meets your aesthetic goals.

The results are permanent, too. Unlike with diet and exercise, which causes fat cells to shrink, SculpSure destroys almost one-fourth of the fat cells in treated areas, so they can’t plump up again. Your SculpSure results are best maintained, however, if you continue to eat healthily and exercise.
