Fat Reduction Q & A

How does fat reduction with SculpSure differ from conventional fat loss?

Fat reduction with SculpSure is permanent. With conventional fat loss through diet and exercise, existing fat cells shrink but always remain. They have the potential to plump back up should you lose willpower or stop exercising due to injury, schedule, or stress.

With SculpSure, fat cells are destroyed and your body evacuates them through the natural waste removal system called the lymphatic system. They cannot plump up ever again and your body does not create new fat cells to replace them. If you gain weight, remaining fat cells may swell, but the ones destroyed by SculpSure are permanently removed from your body.

Who is a candidate for fat reduction with SculpSure?

SculpSure candidates are of a normal weight but have pockets of fat in areas such as the buttocks, thighs, back, and under the chin. Treatment in these areas leads to the destruction of fat to streamline their physique.

SculpSure is not for comprehensive weight loss, however. You should be of a body mass index, or BMI, of 30 or below to experience the best results from the laser treatment.

How does SculpSure reduce fat?

The laser energy of SculpSure reaches below the surface of your skin to heat up fat cells so they can no longer maintain their integrity. They die and your body disposes of them naturally. In about 12 weeks, you’re slimmer and more confident.

How many SculpSure treatments will I need to achieve results?

SculpSure is completely customizable. Dr. Bruton reviews your aesthetic goals and problem areas to create a treatment plan so you get optimal results. Most people benefit from more than one session.

What can I expect during a SculpSure treatment?

At the beginning of the treatment session, you feel a sensation of cooling that comes from the applicator. The cooling feature helps keep your skin comfortable as the laser cycles on and off to raise the temperature of your fat cells.

SculpSure treatments are well-tolerated, providing feelings of warmth and tingling.

What are the advantages of SculpSure for fat loss?

In addition to offering a permanent solution to stubborn fat, SculpSure is noninvasive and treatments are quick, lasting just 25 minutes. You don’t have to disrupt your day afterward, either. You can resume all of your daily activities after a trip to the office, including work, school, exercise, or social time.
