 Start Today If You Want a Slimmer Silhouette on Your Summer Wedding Day

Summer is a really popular time for weddings. In fact, nearly a third of couples tie the knot in the summer months. If you’re one of them, you’re probably deep in the throes of planning right now — and you’re probably more than a little nervous about looking your absolute best once the big day arrives.

If you have stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t budge, don’t worry: Noninvasive body contouring treatments like SculpSure® and Morpheus8 Body® can help — but to be ready in time for your summertime nuptials, you have to start treatments now.

At Starkey Medical Esthetics, Michele Meinhart, FNP, helps brides and grooms get ready for their wedding day with noninvasive SculpSure® and Morpheus8 Body® designed to eliminate stubborn fat without surgery or downtime. Here’s how these methods work — and why now is the best time to schedule your treatment.

SculpSure and Morheus8: The basics

Both SculpSure and Morpheus8 use targeted energy to penetrate your skin without harming it, targeting the deeper layers of fat underneath. Once targeted, fat cells break down and “melt away” over time — without surgery, incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.

In fact, noninvasive fat removal is so popular that nearly 700,000 treatments are performed each year in the United States, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. And because it’s completely customizable, it can be a great way to get ready for your wedding — or any special event.


SculpSure uses the targeted heat of laser technology to penetrate your skin to deeper layers where fatty tissue is found. As the tissue absorbs the heat energy, the fat cell walls break down, essentially liquefying fat while leaving other tissue unharmed.

Over the following weeks, your body carries off the fatty debris and eliminates it, leaving you with sleeker contours. Most people see initial results at around six weeks, with final results appearing at about three months after their treatment.


Morpheus8 combines radiofrequency fat-burning energy with fractional microneedling to slim down isolated areas of fat while also toning and tightening your skin, making it a great treatment for cellulite, too. 

Treatments take about one to two hours depending on the treatment area, and afterward, you can expect to see your initial results within a few weeks. Like SculpSure, more dramatic improvements take a few months to appear.

Why now is the ideal time

Though both Morpheus8 and SculpSure can offer great results, neither of these advanced treatments offers those results instantly. Both treatments use techniques that eliminate fat naturally, and that means it takes some time for your body to eliminate the fatty debris left behind following treatment.

With Morpheus8 and SculpSure, most people begin to see initial results in a few weeks after treatment, with more definitive results appearing within a few months once your body removes the remaining fatty debris and reveals those slimmer, trimmer contours. 

By scheduling your treatment now, you give your body plenty of time to get rid of the fatty waste, so those sleeker, sexier results will be ready to flaunt once your wedding day arrives.
