What is SculpSure body contouring?
SculpSure body contouring is a method of fat removal that uses laser energy to eliminate fat. It’s an entirely non-invasive treatment that targets fat deposits deep underneath the skin in areas such as the abdomen and hips.
SoCal Lazer & Medi-Spa practitioners use a highly advanced type of body contouring: SculpSure. If you’re struggling with unwanted fat deposits such as a muffin top or love handles, body contouring with SculpSure may be the solution.
How does the treatment process work?
SculpSure treatment is a simple process that only takes about 25 minutes per treatment area. While you lie on your back, a SoCal Lazer & Medi-Spa provider applies four different treatment applicators to your skin. These non-suction applicators will stay in place for 25 minutes, gently delivering laser energy directly into your fat cells while you relax.
You won’t be in pain during SculpSure body contouring because the laser heat is balanced with blasts of cold air. As soon as the treatment applicators are removed, you can go right back to your regular routine: no downtime needed.
Is it weight loss or fat loss?
Weight loss and fat loss are two different things. With weight loss, your fat cells will shrink but are still present in the body. With fat loss — like that done with SculpSure — the fat cells aren’t shrunk but are instead completely destroyed. For this reason, SculpSure is especially effective if you’ve lost weight but still struggle with fat deposits in some areas.
How long does it take to get results from SculpSure body contouring?
Most patients get results after just one treatment. However, they can achieve even better results and more optimal contouring with follow-up treatments if they wish to do so. Most SculpSure patients see results at around six weeks post-treatment. The results will improve over the coming weeks as your body eliminates the destroyed fat cells and the fat that was contained within them.
By the time you reach the 12-week post-treatment mark, the ultimate results can be seen. At that time, you can decide whether or not you want to consider additional SculpSure body contouring sessions.
Eliminates up to 24% of fat cells in just 25 minutes
SculpSure is a FDA cleared and clinically tested procedure that is safe and effective. This light-based treatment precisely targets fat cells under the skin, permanently destroying up to 24% of treated fat in 25 minutes.
Fat loss vs. weight loss
The number of fat cells stored in our body typically remain constant throughout adult life. After the SculpSure treatment, the destroyed fat cells will never return. However, as we lose weight, the size of fat cells becomes smaller, but typically, fat cells do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas.
Safe and permanenent
Liposuction is the traditional treatment for flattening down pockets of unwanted fat. Non-invasive fat reduction treatments like SculpSure achieve the same goal without all the risk associated with undergoing actual surgery. Treated fat cells are permanently destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate.
Targets fat cells
SculpSure is a laser fat reduction tool. It works by targeting fat cells with precisely calibrated laser energy. Once treated, your body’s lymphatic system slowly absorbs and eliminates the released fat over an approximate 6-week period, with full results at 12 weeks.
