SculpSure-Body Contouring Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is state-of-the-art technology that permanently destroys fat cells on your body. The laser energy penetrates beneath the surface of your skin to heat fat cells and disrupt their integrity. The cells eventually die and are eliminated through your body’s natural processes.

What areas can SculpSure treat?

SculpSure is effective in reducing fat in areas that are commonly resistant to fat loss. These include the:

  • Belly
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Under the chin

If you have areas on your body that hold onto fat, even if you’re of a healthy weight, consult with Dr. Dhar about using SculpSure to achieve your physique goals. SculpSure is not appropriate for comprehensive weight loss, however. You should have a body mass index of 30 or below to experience results.

How many sessions of SculpSure will I need?

Dr. Dhar works with you to customize a treatment plan. Every single session of SculpSure destroys up to 24% of fat in a treatment area. Most people benefit from a series of treatments.

When will I see the results of SculpSure?

SculpSure results begin to appear in about six weeks following your treatment. Because it takes time for the fat cells to exit your body, complete results don’t show up for about 12 weeks.

Does SculpSure hurt?

SculpSure treatments are noninvasive, so there are no injections, incisions, or blood loss. The laser energy feels warm and tingly, but most patients tolerate it quite well.

What kind of downtime should I expect following SculpSure?

SculpSure is not surgical and requires no downtime. You can go right back to your daily activities following treatment.   

How long do the fat loss results of SculpSure last?

SculpSure results are permanent. With conventional weight loss achieved through diet and exercise, fat cells shrink but always have the potential to swell should you indulge too much or stop exercising. Fat cells treated with SculpSure are destroyed and evacuated from your body never to return.

If you do gain weight, any remaining fat cells in a given treatment area may swell up, but the ones with SculpSure are gone for good.
