It’s safe to say that many of us are tired of working out a lot and not getting the results we are looking for. Even with diet and exercise, most people have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose. SculpSure body contouring treatments are able to target these areas and can reduce fat cells safely in just 25 minutes without affecting the skin’s surface. There’s no recovery time following treatment, so you can resume your daily activities immediately.

Targeted laser energy heats fat cells under the skin without affecting the skin’s surface. The SculpSure laser raises the temperature of fat cells damaging their structural integrity. In the next three-month period, the damaged fat cells are processed and eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system. Fat cells are permanently removed and will not regenerate. Results can be seen as quickly as six weeks and optimal results are typically seen at 12 weeks.

When the treatment starts, you’ll initially feel a cooling sensation. This helps keep the skin comfortable during treatment. The cooling will be on during the entire treatment, while the laser cycles on and off, raising the temperature of the fat cells. Most patients feel a deep warmth and/or tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated.
