SculpSure® by Cynosure is a non-invasive laser body contouring treatment designed to eliminate stubborn areas of fat and help patients achieve a slimmer appearance without surgery.
SculpSure® uses laser energy to gently heat fat cells within a targeted area, once damaged these fat cells shrink and are expelled from the body as waste. This treatment can be applied to the submental area (underneath the chin), abdomen, back, thighs, and other stubborn areas such as the flanks or love handles.
The number of fat cells stored within our bodies generally remain consistent throughout our adult life. Fluctuations in our weight, cause the fat swells to swell or shrink but never cause the cells to decrease or increase in number. However, even with proper diet and exercise routines, some people can have difficulty losing fat in certain areas. SculpSure® is designed to remove unwanted fat cells that have proven resistant in other methods and is ideal for patients with stubborn areas of fat.
SculpSure® is also ideal for busy patients as the treatment process only takes 25 minutes and has no significant downtime, meaning you can return to work and resume normal activities directly after treatment. During treatment, patients may feel a slight tingling sensation but should not experience any pain or discomfort.
The number of treatment sessions will vary depending on your desired goals and our staff will work with you during our initial consultation to determine the best treatment plan for your needs.
Following treatment, patients may experience temporary tenderness, redness, swelling, or muscle firmness in the treatment area but these side effects should subside within a few days. We recommend patients massage the area gently for a few minutes each day to encourage the elimination of fat cells.
Results can be seen as early as 6 weeks following treatment with optimal results generally visible by week 12. Since the fat cells are removed from the body, the results are permanent and can be maintained with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
