SculpSure Body Contouring Q & A

by Cynthia B. Yalowitz, MD, FAAD

Approved by the FDA in 2015, SculpSure is a noninvasive, nonsurgical body contouring treatment used to get rid of stubborn fat on the abdomen, back, flanks, and inner and outer thighs. SculpSure has gained popularity over other fat reduction treatments because of the minimal discomfort, reported effectiveness, and little to no recovery time. 

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure is a laser treatment and method of lipolysis, which means “fat disintegration.”

During a SculpSure treatment session, Dr. Yalowitz places applicator paddles on the areas designated for fat loss. These paddles emit energy that cools your skin while simultaneously lasering your fat cells. The laser energy destroys the integrity of the fat cells, so they die off and are eliminated naturally through your lymphatic system.

SculpSure treatments take about 25 minutes and don't require any type of anesthesia or numbing. During the procedure, you can relax, read, or even take a nap. 

When will I see the results of SculpSure?

Expect to start seeing results in as little as six weeks, with optimal results appearing after about 12 weeks. If additional treatments are needed, SculpSure can be applied again after 6-12 weeks.

Does SculpSure hurt?

The SculpSure laser sends heat waves deep to destroy the fat cells that lie under the surface of the skin, while it intermittently cycles a cooling treatment to keep the top portion of the skin comfortable. During a SculpSure treatment, you may also experience a stinging sensation or mild cramping; however, Dr. Yalowitz can adjust the temperature as needed at any time.

How do I determine if SculpSure is right for me?

SculpSure works for both men and women, and can be an effective solution regardless of your body type. As with other fat reduction treatments, the results of SculpSure won't last if you don't maintain a healthy lifestyle afterward. You should continue to exercise regularly and maintain a proper diet to enhance your results.

Body contouring is very personal and something you'll want to discuss one-on-one with your doctor. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Yalowitz to learn more about SculpSure and see if it's right for you. Call or book your appointment online.
