SculpSure Body Contouring Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure uses gentle laser energy to target stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, and thighs. The heat from the laser disrupts the integrity of the fat cells so they eventually die. Your body then naturally disposes of the destroyed cells through your lymphatic system.

Is SculpSure painful?

Most patients describe SculpSure treatments as tingly and deeply warming, and most tolerate the procedure well. During the laser SculpSure treatment, you feel cooling sensations interspersed with the heat of the laser.

Where is SculpSure effective in reducing fat?

SculpSure is for areas that are typically resistant to fat loss, despite efforts to exercise and diet. This includes the love handles, belly, back, thighs, and under the chin. Results do vary.

What are the benefits of SculpSure?

SculpSure is simple and effective in reducing up to 24% of fat cells in a given area. It requires no surgery or incisions, so recovery is quick and needs no downtime. The staff at Melanie L. Adams, MD, PA, performs SculpSure in a calm and relaxing environment.

Unlike traditional dieting in which the fat cells simply shrink, SculpSure destroys fat cells, meaning the fat loss is permanent.

When should I expect to see the results of the SculpSure treatment?

You may notice changes within six weeks, when your body starts to rid itself of the destroyed fat cells. Full results are evident 12 weeks after treatment. At this point, you may elect to have another session.

How many treatments do I need to get results?

The answer is different for every patient. It depends on your goals and how your body responds. Some people do well with one treatment, while others benefit from multiple sessions. Dr. Adams can put together a treatment plan that helps you maximize your results.

What precautions should I take after a SculpSure treatment?

After a SculpSure session, there’s no downtime. This means you can resume all your daily activities, such as going to work, exercising, or fulfilling family obligations.
