Body Contouring FAQ

Home / Body Contouring FAQ

SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring system for the reduction of stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen and love handles. The 25 minute procedure destroys up to 24%1 of treated fat cells without surgery.

SculpSure is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise.

Most patients will see results with only one treatment. However, some patients may wish to have additional treatments based on desired results. Ask your treatment provider about the best treatment plan for you.

Most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated.2

Many patients 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.

Treated fat cells are permanently destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate.

There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately.

Typically, the number of fat cells stored in our bodies remains constant throughout adult life. After the SculpSure treatment, the destroyed fat cells will never return. However, as we lose weight, the size of the fat cells becomes smaller, but typically do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas.

Yes, you can treat multiple areas in one day. If doing multiple treatments in the same area, we recommend waiting 6 weeks between treatments.
