SculpSure Q & A
What does the SculpSure laser do?
When you go in for your SculpSure appointment, Dr. Brown uses a gentle handheld device to go over all of your problem areas. The system delivers targeted energy to those spots and heats fat cells below the surface of your skin. As the temperature of fat cells rises, they start to deconstruct and lose their structural integrity. Over the next few months, your body naturally starts pushing out the broken down fat cells through waste. You can lose as much as 24% of the fat cells in your targeted problem area with just one SculpSure session. Once that fat is gone, it’s gone for good.
Does the fat ever come back?
Fat loss with SculpSure is permanent. But it’s up to you to keep your new physique toned and trimmed. While the fat that was destroyed with SculpSure won’t come back, you can certainly gain new fat cells if you don’t stay on top of your diet and exercise regimen.
When should I start seeing results?
Most patients report noticing improvement just six weeks after a SculpSure treatment. Because your fat cells continue breaking down, you’ll keep seeing better results with each passing day. You should experience your best results about 12 weeks after your session.
How much time do I have to take off of work?
None! That’s one of the biggest benefits of zapping away fat with SculpSure. Sessions are quick, lasting about 25 minutes each. Plus they’re non-invasive. This means that you can get in and get out of your SculpSure appointment while you’re out running errands or even on your lunch break.
Is the SculpSure laser painful?
Not at all. While the system does heat fat cells under the surface of your skin, it doesn’t make your skin hot. This means that you won’t have to worry about burning or stinging. Most patients who have gone through the process say that it feels like intermittent tingling. It’s common for patients to be on their cell phones or tablets during their SculpSure procedure since they’re not in any discomfort.
