SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a form of body contouring treatment that removes excess fat from hard-to-shift parts of the body with laser technology. The laser technology in SculpSure uses targeted heat to destroy fat cells without the need for surgery, providing a safe and convenient way to improve your figure.

The laser beams SculpSure uses heat your fat cells to the temperature required to destroy them, but leave surrounding tissues unharmed. Once the cells are dead, your body eliminates them in the weeks following your treatment, and the dead cells can’t grow back so the effects are permanent.

What are the benefits of using SculpSure?

SculpSure has advantages over other forms of body sculpting or surgical fat reduction:

  • No incisions, so minimal risk of infection
  • Far more comfortable than surgery
  • No anesthetic required so less risk of complications
  • No downtime after the procedure
  • Treatment time is shorter at around 25 minutes
  • Lasers enable greater accuracy in targeting the treatment area
  • You can have up to four treatments at one time
  • SculpSure is precise enough to target small deposits of fat

The applicator on the SculpSure laser delivers a cooling effect during treatment to keep you comfortable, and the heat dispersion system ensures that your practitioner can feather the surrounding tissues up to five centimeters beyond the fat pocket to give you a smooth, natural look.

When will I see the results of my SculpSure treatment?

You should see a reduction in fat levels around six weeks after your SculpSure treatment, and most patients will see the final results at approximately three months following treatment.

It’s advisable to have regular sessions to maintain your new figure, and your practitioner at Starkey Medical Esthetics creates a customized treatment plan for you to ensure the best possible results from your SculpSure body contouring.

It’s frustrating to be stuck with areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise, but SculpSure body contouring is a safe and effective way to reduce those stubborn areas of fat and give you a slimmer, more natural-looking figure. Call Starkey Medical Esthetics today.
