A contoured body is not outside your reach, but you’re not going to get it by eating specific nutrients or with leg lifts and crunches. While these are healthy lifestyle habits, they can’t spot train specific problem areas on your body. SculpSure® can. Dr. Amy Bruton at Woman to Woman Gynecology offers this unique laser treatment to help contour trouble spots. Call the Raleigh, North Carolina, office or book an appointment online to learn about noninvasive body contouring with SculpSure.

Body Contouring Q & A

What is SculpSure body contouring?

SculpSure is a state-of-the-art laser treatment that destroys fat cells in targeted treatment areas. These areas are usually those that are resistant to fat loss through conventional means, such as diet and exercise. When you eat right and are physically active, you may lose fat all over, but trouble spots remain. SculpSure can pinpoint these trouble spots to create a naturally slimmer you.

How does SculpSure contour the body?

SculpSure directs laser energy to treatment areas. The heat penetrates your outer layer of skin to reach the fat cells that lie beneath. When heated, these fat cells die and are eliminated through your body’s natural processes. Up to 24% of fat in any given area is destroyed in a SculpSure session.

What areas can be contoured with SculpSure?

Fitness magazines and trainers promise to help you lose fat in certain places, but, in reality, spot training is a myth. Genetics determine the pattern in which your body naturally loses fat.

But, SculpSure gives you an advantage. It can target places where your body usually holds on to fat, including your:

  • Thighs
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Under the chin area

SculpSure puts you in control of fat loss without you having to undergo invasive surgery, like liposuction, or take a lot of time off from your daily activities. The laser treatment is noninvasive and doesn’t interrupt your daily life.

When will I see results from SculpSure body contouring treatment?

The disrupted fat cells take time to die off and leave your body. Expect to start noticing results in about six weeks following a session with optimal results appearing after 12 weeks. The results are permanent. The destroyed fat cells cannot return and your body doesn’t produce new ones to replace them. If you are to gain weight in the future, remaining fat cells that aren’t destroyed by SculpSure do have the potential to swell, however.

Does SculpSure hurt?

During your SculpSure treatments, you’ll feel alternating sensations of cooling and heat as the laser pulses on and off. The cooling emitted from the handpiece is designed to reduce any discomfort the laser causes. Most people describe SculpSure as feeling warm and tingly.
