SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a laser treatment delivered through your skin that permanently destroys fat cells. During a treatment session, Dr. Springer directs the laser energy to the target area using four appliances placed according to your individual goals utilizing frames and straps. The heat energy penetrates your outer layer of skin to heat up the fat cells beneath. This disrupts their integrity so they can no longer survive. Your body then eliminates these destroyed fat cells through your lymphatic system.

What areas can be treated with SculpSure?

SculpSure treatments aren’t designed for comprehensive weight loss. But if you’re at or near your normal weight, but still have problem spots with bulges of fat, SculpSure is for you. Use SculpSure to contour areas, including your:

  • Thighs
  • Submental area (under the chin)
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Arms

Talk to Dr. Springer about your physique goals to determine if SculpSure is right for you.

Do SculpSure treatments hurt?

SculpSure treatments are well-tolerated. You may feel some heat or tingling as the procedure occurs but won’t require an anesthetic.

How many treatments will I need?

Most people get the best results from a series of treatments. Dr. Springer sells treatments in packages of two treatments, as a second treatment definitely produces more consistent results. Any one session of SculpSure destroys up to 24% of fat cells in a given treatment area. Discuss your goals with Dr. Springer, and he can design a customized treatment plan for you.

Should I plan for downtime following SculpSure treatments?

The procedure takes 25 minutes, has minimal discomfort, and requires no downtime. SculpSure treatments involve absolutely no incisions, injections, blood loss, or risk of infection. You can go right back to your regular activities following a session. Many people schedule SculpSure sessions on their lunch break and go back to work afterward.

You may have some redness in the treated areas, but this resolves within a few hours.

When will I see results from SculpSure?

Your body needs some time to eliminate the fat cells from the treated areas. You start to notice results in about six weeks, with optimal results appearing after 12 weeks.

How long do SculpSure results last?

SculpSure permanently destroys fat cells, so they cannot regenerate. Remaining fat cells can still shrink or enlarge depending on diet and exercise, but the sculpting effect is permanent. Once you achieve results from SculpSure, your best shape can be maintained with a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and regular physical activity.
