What is SculpSure™?
SculpSure™ is a diode laser with a 1060 wavelength that selectively heats fat and destroys it, resulting in permanent reduction of stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen, love handles, thighs, back, arms and legs. This 25 minute procedure is completely non-invasive and destroys up to 24%1 of treated fat cells without surgery, anesthesia or downtime. Patient satisfaction is over 90 percent. SculpSure™ is FDA approved for fat reduction.
How does SculpSure™ differ from CoolSculpt®?
The two are completely different devices. CoolSculpt® freezes the fat by placing tissue into a suction device but takes up to 1.5 hours per treatment area and can only do one treatment area at a time, meaning a full 4 area abdomen would take 6 hours to complete. There is also bruising and swelling with CoolSculpt® as well as a risk of “shelving” with uneven fat loss and no tightening of loose skin after fat removal. In marked distinction, SculpSure™ selectively heats fat but leaves surrounding muscles, nerves or organs alone; it’s a 25 minute with up to four treatment areas at a time, without bruising or swelling or the uneven fat loss seen with CoolSculpt®. SculpSure™ also tightens loose skin.
Are needles or surgical incisions involved?
Sculpture™ is a completely non-invasive treatment.
Who is a candidate for SculpSure™?
SculpSure™ is most suitable for people who already have a healthy diet and exercise routine but are still bothered by with by resistance areas of fatty tissue on the body. SculpSure™ is not for obese patients.
How many treatments are needed?
Results can be seen with just one treatment. Up to 2 to 2.5 inches, and in some cases, 3 inches have been seen. Some patients have more than one treatment for additional fat reduction.
Is the treatment painful?
No, most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated.
What about the loose skin that remains after fat reduction?
In addition to reducing unwanted areas of fat on the body, SculpSure™ also tightens the overlying loose skin.
How long does it take to see the results?
Many patients notice improvements as soon as 6 weeks after treatment with final results seen at 12 weeks.
How long do the results last?
Does the fat come back? Treated fat cells are permanently destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate.
When can I resume my usual activities?
SculpSure™ is a no downtime procedure allowing you have treatment over your lunch hour and return to work immediately after treatment. Even bruising and swelling is uncommon.
