SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an FDA-approved, non-invasive laser treatment the medical team at South Sound Preventive Medicine use to eliminate stubborn fat from your:

  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Flanks (love handles)

Because the SculpSure technology is gentle and noninvasive, your doctor can also use the laser treatment on your face, neck, and chin to reduce fat deposits and enhance the smoothness and texture of your skin with long-lasting results.

SculpSure uses laser technology to heat and destroy targeted fat cells. Your body eliminates unwanted fat cells naturally through your lymphatic system over the course of several weeks following your treatment.

The SculpSure technology allows the team at South Sound Preventive Medicine to target fat deposits without the need for anesthesia or surgical incisions. Once your lymphatic system eliminates the cells, they are gone for good.

What can I expect during a SculpSure procedure?

First, your doctor reviews your medical history and discusses your individual, cosmetic goals to determine if SculpSure is right for you. If you’re a good candidate, your doctor performs the SculpSure laser treatment in a comfortable office environment.

During the procedure, your doctor wraps a belt-like device around the treatment area. This device heats up to destroy targeted fat cells without damaging surrounding skin or other tissue. You experience both heating and cooling sensations during the procedure.

Most procedures last approximately 30 minutes — larger treatment areas require more time.

What can I expect after a SculpSure treatment?

SculpSure has minimal side effects. You may feel stiffness in the treatment area immediately following the procedure. You may also experience some bruising that resolves on its own in a few days.

Because SculpSure is noninvasive, there is no recovery time and you can return to your normal activities right away. In the weeks after your SculpSure procedure, you will gradually notice results as the fat continues to melt away. It may take up to 12 weeks to notice full results.

The eliminated fat cells will not return, but you must follow a regular fitness plan and a healthy diet to maintain long-term results.

Your doctor discusses your cosmetic goals and expectations prior to the procedure to determine if more than one procedure is necessary.
