SculpSure Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring refers to several procedures used to remove fat from specific parts of your body. Many people are familiar with minimally invasive procedures that require an incision, such as liposuction, but that’s not your only option.

Noninvasive body contouring removes pockets of fat without needing an incision. This type of body contouring works well for patients who are close to their healthy weight but need help with resistant areas of fat.

The team at Night and Day Medical offer effective body contouring with SculpSure®.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a state-of-the-art medical device that uses safe laser energy to eliminate localized areas of fat that won’t go away despite diet and exercise.

The SculpSure is FDA-cleared to remove fat from your:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (sides of your abdomen)
  • Back
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Under your chin

How does SculpSure work?

The SculpSure device uses a laser set to a specific wavelength that safely passes through your skin to reach targeted areas of fat. As fat cells absorb the laser’s energy, they’re heated to a precise temperature that’s high enough to destroy the cells.

After the fat cells break down, they’re naturally eliminated from your body through the lymph system. As a result, the treated fat is permanently removed.

What should you expect during SculpSure treatment?

The SculpSure system comes with four applicators that are placed against your skin during your treatment. Your technician chooses the number of applicators to use based on the area being treated. When all four are used, they can treat your entire abdomen.

Each applicator has a built-in cooling system that keeps your skin comfortable while fat cells below the surface are heated. Throughout your session, the laser turns on and off to maintain the proper temperature inside fat cells, creating cycles of warmth alternating with a cooling sensation.

Will you need downtime?

You don’t need to worry about downtime. Your skin may be slightly red, but you can get back to your daily activities right after your session is finished.

When will you see results?

One SculpSure session takes only 25 minutes. During that time, 24% of the fat cells in the treated area may be destroyed.*

You’ll need to be a little patient, however, because it takes time for your body to clear away the damaged fat cells. Many patients see the difference in six weeks, but it can take up to 12 weeks to see optimal results.
