SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an innovative, nonsurgical body-contouring treatment for reducing unwanted body fat. Using advanced laser technology, SculpSure quickly and safely destroys fat cells in only 25 minutes. After the treatment, your immune system continues to flush out the fat cells over the next few months, leaving you with a slimmer body.

How does SculpSure work?

This noninvasive treatment uses laser energy to target and kill fat cells without damaging healthy tissues in your body.

Losing weight with diet and exercise causes your fat cells to shrink, but those cells never actually leave your body. That can lead to deposits of fat that won’t disappear despite your best efforts. SculpSure eliminates your fat cells permanently, revealing the figure of your dreams.

What areas can SculpSure treat?

SculpSure treatment is FDA-cleared for targeting stubborn fat in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Chin

Who is a good candidate for SculpSure treatment?

Dr. Patel uses SculpSure on men and women of all body types. However, this isn’t a weight loss treatment. SculpSure works best for reducing moderate amounts of excess fat, but it isn’t right for obese patients.

The best way to find out if SculpSure is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Patel. If you’re not a good candidate for SculpSure, he may recommend another weight loss treatment instead.

What should I expect from a SculpSure treatment?

First, Dr. Patel performs a physical exam and discusses your aesthetic concerns and goals during an initial consultation. If you decide to pursue SculpSure, he creates a customized treatment plan to address your specific needs.

SculpSure treatments last 25 minutes and can target multiple areas at once. It isn’t painful, but you may feel a deep warmth or tingling sensation during the procedure. The SculpSure applicator delivers a cooling sensation to keep you comfortable throughout the session.

This treatment doesn’t require any downtime, so you can resume normal activities right away. You may see results as early as six weeks after your first treatment, but optimal results typically appear around 12 weeks. Although every patient is different, most see the best results with multiple treatments.
