SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an FDA cleared laser treatment for fat reduction. This treatment is ideal for spot reduction of stubborn fat in areas like the:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Hips

At Sound Internal and Aesthetic Medicine, you can get SculpSure treatments from the shoulders down that are tailored to your individual needs, and each session lasts only 25 minutes. The fat cell reduction is permanent. With weight loss, your fat cells shrink in size, but they’re still in place. With SculpSure, your fat cells are destroyed and actually leave your body.

Is SculpSure right for me?

Dr. Medani can evaluate you and discuss your goals to determine whether you’re a good candidate. In general, SculpSure is best for reduction of fat where diet and exercise haven’t worked. Some areas of fat are just more stubborn than others, so if you’re frustrated with love handles, a muffin top, saddlebags, or other fat deposits, SculpSure may be perfect for you.

It’s not a replacement for weight loss, but more of a way to enhance your appearance once you’re at or reasonably close to a healthy weight. If you’ve lost a lot of weight and have significant loose skin, SculpSure may not be the right choice, as it only addresses fat cells. To remove significant excess skin, surgery is needed.

How does SculpSure work?

During your SculpSure session, you’ll lay down in a comfortable position, and Dr. Medani places the four SculpSure treatment applicators directly above your problem area. As the SculpSure machine works, it sends laser energy through your top skin layers and down into your fat cells.

The laser heats your fat cells. This disrupts the fat cells and destroys the shells to release their contents. Over the coming three months, you’ll process and remove those fat cells through your lymphatic system.

When will I see results from SculpSure treatment?

You may notice fat reduction in the treatment area after as little as six weeks, but most patients get optimal results after three months.

To keep those great results, it’s important to make an effort to maintain a healthy weight after your treatment. While you can’t regain the lost fat cells, it’s possible to gain weight in the untreated areas nearby.
