SculpSure Body Contouring Q & A
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is an innovative FDA cleared laser treatment that is a form of lipolysis that targets your unwanted fat. Developed by Cynosure, Sculpsure is a non-invasive, 25-minute procedure that uses laser heat to target pockets of fat.
It’s most effective for people who have areas of stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise, often these areas include the belly and love handles. Treatment plans are customized to each patient. Sculpsure is a nonsurgical treatment with no downtime with maximum results seen 12 weeks after treatment.
Dr. Ito is dedicated to helping you to look and feel your best. By providing a comprehensive consultation, Dr. Ito will ensure you understand the treatment and have all your questions answered. Dr. Ito provides her patients with reliable advice and suggestions to help you meet your goals.
How Does SculpSure Work?
SculpSure harnesses laser light and heat energy to damage fat cells. The laser targets your unwanted fatty tissue using a unique four-headed applicator. The heat breaks down your fat cells, which then dissolve and are flushed from your body with other waste.
Most patients have a series of treatments to achieve the best effects. You need to wait six weeks between treatments. You’ll typically start to notice a difference approximately four weeks after your treatment with the best effects being noticeable after about 12 weeks.
What Body Areas Does SculpSure Treat?
SculpSure can be used on many body areas and common problem spots like:
● Love handles
● Inner and outer thighs
Most recently, SculpSure has received FDA clearance for submental (under the chin) treatment. Dr. Ito is one of the first practices in the South Bay offering this treatment.
What Happens During a SculpSure Treatment?
During your SculpSure treatment, you relax on one of our comfortable treatment beds. Dr. Francine Ito attaches the applicator device to your target body area and uses an adjustable belt to hold it in place. You’ll experience a warming sensation during treatment and a cooling cycle to prevent your skin from overheating.
After 25 minutes, the applicator will be removed and you are able to get back to your normal day. We recommend gently massaging the treated areas twice daily, until your next treatment. Be sure to stay hydrated and engage in light physical activity to help mobilize the disrupted fat.
