Body Sculpting Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an FDA-cleared treatment for fat loss. When applied to your skin, the laser energy penetrates beneath the skin to heat the fat cells there. This disrupts their integrity, so they die and are eliminated through your body’s natural systems.

What areas can be treated with SculpSure?

SculpSure is used to sculpt areas that are typically resistant to fat loss with diet and exercise. These include the:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Flanks
  • Submental area (under the chin)

Talk to the team at Center4Health to find out if SculpSure can help slim your areas of concern.

Does SculpSure hurt?

When the SculpSure energy is applied to your skin, you feel mild tingling and heat. Most patients tolerate the treatment quite well without any numbing cream or ice. Each session is quick too, lasting about 25 minutes.

How many sessions of SculpSure will I need?

Any single session of SculpSure can help reduce up to 24% of the fat in a given treatment area. Most people get the best results from multiple sessions. Talk to the staff at the Center4Health to discuss a treatment plan that will help you achieve your body-sculpting goals.

Does SculpSure require downtime?

Following SculpSure treatments, you can go right back to your daily activities. Unlike invasive methods, SculpSure involves no incisions, blood loss, or rest time following a session. The only side effects are possible reddening of the skin at treatment areas, but this fades within a few hours.

How long do the results of SculpSure last?

The fat that’s lost with SculpSure is gone for good because the laser destroys the fat cells. With conventional diet and exercise, fat cells only shrink and aren’t eliminated. This means they always have the potential to plump back up if you indulge too much or quit exercising. With SculpSure, fat cells are eliminated, so they cannot return.

Your results are best maintained with a healthy diet and regular physical activity, however. If you do gain weight, fat cells not destroyed with SculpSure have the potential to swell.
