Sculpsure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a breakthrough FDA-approved laser body contouring treatment that permanently destroys fat cells. SculpSure is designed to improve your appearance by melting fat in places where fat refuses to go away, like your abdomen and love handles, even when you’re near your target weight.

If you’ve tried “spot training” to reduce fat in specific places, you probably haven’t had much luck, and you aren’t alone. There’s actually no way to control where you lose fat through exercise, and just about everyone has problem areas where their body naturally carries more fat.

SculpSure is a revolutionary treatment because it allows you to reduce fat exactly where you want, helping you get closer to your ideal body. It produces dramatic cosmetic results for people who carry excess fat in common problem spots like the abdomen, stomach, back, flanks, inner and outer thighs, and neck (including double chins).

How does SculpSure work?

Dr. Behm applies a flat, smooth applicator to the surface of your skin, and it produces a laser that goes beneath your skin and raises the temperature of your fat cells. The laser precisely targets fat cells, so you don’t have to worry about it damaging your skin, and SculpSure’s built-in cooling system keeps you comfortable throughout the procedure. Each procedure lasts about 25 minutes, and there’s no downtime, so you’ll be able to return to your usual activities.

After the laser destroys your fat cells, your body processes and expels them as a waste product. Many people are satisfied after just one treatment, though it takes 6-12 weeks to see results, and you may want additional treatments. You’ll also want to continue following your diet and exercise plan to maintain your results.

Who is a good candidate for SculpSure?

SculpSure is not a solution for weight loss or designed to prevent medical complications from excess body fat. You’ll get the most benefit from SculpSure if you’re close to your ideal body weight, lead a healthy lifestyle, and want to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to exercise and diet. If that sounds like you, SculpSure can help you achieve a leaner, more toned appearance and boost your confidence.

In addition to destroying fat cells, SculpSure stimulates your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, resulting in a tighter, firmer, more youthful appearance. So if you have areas of sagging skin, which often follows weight loss, SculpSure can help with that, too.
