Sculpsure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure body contouring is a nonsurgical way to reduce stubborn fat for good. It uses laser energy to gently heat the adipose (fat) cells below the surface of your skin. With this safe, FDA-cleared technology, the SculpSure body-contouring system damages unwanted fat cells so your body can eliminate them naturally and gradually. Fat is gone, and a slimmer, toner silhouette is all that’s left.

What areas can SculpSure treat?

SculpSure works on the most stubborn pockets of fat, including:

  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Belly
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Under your chin

In just a single 25-minute treatment, you can lose up to 24% of the fat cells in a specific area. And you can treat more than one area at the same appointment.

Who is a good candidate for SculpSure fat-reduction treatments?

SculpSure body contouring treatments are excellent for men and women who are close to their ideal weight but still have trouble spots that just don’t respond to diet and exercise. As long as you’re in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the treatments, you may be a good candidate for SculpSure noninvasive fat reduction.

What are the benefits of nonsurgical fat reduction like SculpSure?

With SculpSure, you can enjoy the following benefits:

  • No downtime
  • No surgery or incisions
  • No needles
  • No unpleasant side effects
  • Gradual results so you don’t appear to have had work done
  • Long-lasting results
  • Permanent reduction in the number of fat cells in the treated area
  • Reduced waist or thigh circumference
  • Toned, firmer areas
  • No anesthetics needed
  • No scarring

It’s such a safe, comfortable procedure that some patients actually fall asleep during their SculpSure sessions.

What can I expect during a SculpSure treatment session?

Depending on the area you’re treating, the SculpSure device wraps around you like a belt, for your waist and love handles, or goes around your thighs. You relax in a comfortable position while the diode laser energy heats tissue to 107.6°F and 116.7°F, which is hot enough to destroy the fat cells under your skin while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed.

The device alternates between a cooling and warming sensation that are both easily tolerated and meant to keep you comfortable. You might also feel a tingling sensation during the treatment.

Over the next 6-12 weeks afterward, your body’s lymphatic system flushes away the dead fat cells and you notice a slimmer, firmer appearance in the treated areas.

If you’re ready to get a firmer, more sculpted belly, thighs, or love handles, call Lincolnway Family Care for an appointment. Dr. Ovalle speaks both English and Spanish. You can also book online.
