Patient Frequently Asked Questions
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring system for the reduction of stubborn
fat in areas such as the belly, love handles, back, inner thighs and outer thighs.
Each 25 minute procedure can destroy up to 24% of treated fat cells without
Is SculpSure right for me?
SculpSure is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem
resistant to diet and exercise.
How many treatments will I need?
Every patient is different. Your treatment provider will develop a customized
treatment plan to meet your desired goals. Most patients see the best results when
they treat multiple areas. Ask your treatment provider about the treatment plan
that is right for you.
What should I expect during the treatment?
Most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment
which is generally well-tolerated.
When will I see results?
Patients may start to see results as early as 6 weeks following treatment as the
body begins to evacuate the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen
at 12 weeks.
How long will the results last?
Treated fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate.
How long before I can resume normal activities?
There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can have the treatment during your
lunch hour and return to work immediately.
What is the difference between fat loss and weight loss?
The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout
adult life. As we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller, but do not
decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing
weight in these trouble areas. After the SculpSure treatment, the fat cells are
permanently destroyed and will not return.
