Sculpsure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a fat-loss system used for body contouring. The treatment is completely noninvasive and can be done as an outpatient procedure at Sana Medical Group. SculpSure is ideal for treatment of stubborn fatty pockets in areas such as the belly and the sides.

Is it fat loss or weight loss?

SculpSure is specially designed for fat loss, and is not intended to serve as a weight-loss solution. Even when a patient reaches their ideal weight, or close to it, they may arrive at a point where they just can't drop the extra fat in certain areas. SculpSure is the solution that can eliminate that extra fat.

When a patient loses weight, they're simply causing their fat cells to shrink. When SculpSure treatment is performed, the fat cells are destroyed. As much as 25% of the fat cells in the targeted area are destroyed in a single SculpSure treatment.

What are the main benefits of SculpSure?

SculpSure has many benefits including:

  • Short treatment sessions, lasting 25 minutes on average
  • Complete destruction of fat cells, which means they can't return in the treated area
  • SculpSure is cleared by the FDA for treatment of fatty deposits
  • SculpSure is completely noninvasive and requires no surgical incisions
  • No recovery time is required

What is the SculpSure treatment like?

SculpSure treatment is usually very well tolerated, and most patients feel nothing more than a mild tingling sensation. While you lie comfortably on your back, four treatment paddles are attached to the body in the treatment area. Some warmth can be expected as the laser penetrates the fat cells to destroy them, but the SculpSure system blasts cooling air to alleviate the sensation of heat.

How many SculpSure treatments are needed?

The number of treatments needed depends on the individual patient. Many patients need only one SculpSure treatment, since a single treatment reduces up to 24% of the fat in the targeted area. If you want to have additional body sculpting, Dr. Villagomez is happy to discuss a plan for further treatments with you.

When will results be evident?

Results can typically be seen at around six weeks after SculpSure treatment. Complete results are usually observed at about 12 week after treatment. It takes time for the destroyed fat cells to fully exit the body, but once they're gone, the results can be quite impressive.
