SculpSure Q & A

How does Sculpsure work?

The number of fat cells in your body doesn’t change over the course of your life. When you gain or lose weight, your existing fat cells grow or shrink.

To recontour your body, Sculpsure permanently eliminates your fat cells through these steps:

  • Laser energy heats fat cells under your skin without affecting the surface of the targeted area
  • Your fat cells absorb the heat, which destroys them
  • Over the course of several months, your body naturally eliminates the destroyed cells
  • These fat cells don’t regenerate

Sculpsure is a body contouring procedure, not a weight reduction procedure.

Where can Sculpsure be used?

Sculpsure is highly effective where stubborn pockets of fat are hard to eliminate with diet and exercise alone, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Love handles
  • Back

How many Sculpsure treatments do I need?

Each Sculpsure treatment typically lasts 25 minutes, and the number of treatments you need depends on the areas you want to target. To determine how many treatments are best for your situation, set up a consultation with Dr. Brelsford to discuss your goals.

When will I see results?

Results of the Sculpsure procedure are progressive as your body processes and eliminates your fat cells. You may see results as soon as six weeks after the procedure, with maximum results after 12 weeks.

These results are permanent because your body doesn’t regenerate the destroyed fat cells.

Are there any risks with Sculpsure?

Sculpsure is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration and is a noninvasive procedure. The laser energy is delivered below your skin without damaging the surface area.

To counter the heat from the laser, Sculpsure is equipped with a cooling technology to maximize your comfort. Most patients feel some tingling or warmth throughout the short procedure, which is easily tolerated.
