SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a state-of-the-art laser technology that targets fat cells for permanent destruction. When the laser energy is applied to the surface of your skin using a specialized wand, the heat penetrates the outer layer to address the fat cells below. When brought up to temperature, the fat cells lose their integrity and eventually die. Your body then disposes of these fat cells through your natural waste removal processes, including through the lymphatic system.

What areas can be treated with SculpSure?

Areas that tend to hold onto fat even when you achieve a healthy weight respond well to SculpSure treatments. These include the:

  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Submental area (under the chin)

SculpSure is not intended to help you achieve comprehensive weight loss. Rather, it helps when you have already reached a healthy weight with a body mass index of 30 or below. SculpSure targets those areas that remain plumped, despite your diet and exercise efforts.

Is there downtime associated with SculpSure?

SculpSure requires no downtime following treatment. You experience no blood loss, incisions, or risk of infection. Men and women who undergo SculpSure can go right back to their regular daily activities after a session. Many people schedule SculpSure during their lunch hour and return to work right afterward.

How many sessions will I need?

Each noninvasive session of SculpSure destroys up to 24% of fat cells in any given treatment area. Most people benefit from multiple sessions. Dr. Baker helps devise a customized plan for you depending on your treatment goals.

When will I see results of SculpSure?

The fat-loss results of SculpSure are evident as soon as six weeks following a session. Your body needs the time to eliminate the disrupted fat cells. After 12 weeks, you will see optimal results.  

These results are permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, portion-controlled diet, and regular exercise. While the fat cells treated with SculpSure are gone for good and cannot re-plump, other remaining fat cells can plump if you gain weight.
