SculpSure – Frequently Asked Questions
What is SculpSure? SculpSure is a diode laser with a 1060 wavelength that selectively heats fat and destroys it, resulting in permanent reduction of stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen, love handles, thighs, back, arms and legs. This 25 minute procedure is completely non-invasive and destroys up to 24%1 of treated fat cells without surgery, anesthesia or downtime. Patient satisfaction is over 90 percent. SculpSure is FDA approved for fat reduction.
How does SculpSure differ from CoolSculpt? The two are completely different devices. CoolSculpt freezes the fat by placing tissue into a suction device but takes up to 1.5 hours per treatment area and can only do one treatment area at a time, meaning a full 4 area abdomen would take 6 hours to complete. There is also bruising and swelling with CoolSculpt as well as a risk of “shelving” with uneven fat loss and no tightening of loose skin after fat removal. In marked distinction, SculpSure selectively heats fat but leaves surrounding muscles, nerves or organs alone; it’s a 25 minute with up to four treatment areas at a time, without bruising or swelling or the uneven fat loss seen with CoolSculpt. SculpSure also tightens loose skin.
Are needles or surgical incisions involved? Sculpture is a completely non-invasive treatment.
Who is a candidate for SculpSure? SculpSure is most suitable for people who already have a healthy diet and exercise routine but are still bothered by with by resistance areas of fatty tissue on the body. SculpSure is not for obese patients.
How many treatments are needed? Results can be seen with just one treatment. Up to 2 to 2.5 inches, and in some cases, 3 inches have been seen. Some patients have more than one treatment for additional fat reduction.
Is the treatment painful? No, most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated.
What about the loose skin that remains after fat reduction? In addition to reducing unwanted areas of fat on the body, SculpSure also tightens the overlying loose skin.
How long does it take to see the results? Many patients notice improvements as soon as 6 weeks after treatment with final results seen at 12 weeks.
When can I resume my usual activities? SculpSure is a no downtime procedure allowing you have treatment over your lunch hour and return to work immediately after treatment. Even bruising and swelling is uncommon.
