SculpSure Body Contouring

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a noninvasive body contouring system cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration for the reduction of stubborn fat in the following areas:

  • Belly
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Submental area (under the chin)

Each 25-minute procedure can destroy up to 24% of treated fat cells without surgery.*

How does SculpSure work?

There are only three ways to get rid of fat:

  • Surgery with liposuction
  • Freezing the fat, which takes longer and uses old technology
  • Heating the fat cells with SculpSure to destroy them permanently

SculpSure’s higher temperature “shocks” the fat cells, which die over a few weeks. The body reacts to the injury, and the immune system cleans up the damaged cells by naturally eliminating them through the lymphatic system. As a result, the treated area shrinks because there are fewer fat cells, and the destroyed cells do not regenerate.

Patients may start to see results as early as six weeks following treatment as the body begins to erase the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks.

There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately.

What is the difference between fat loss and weight loss?

The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout adult life. As we lose weight, the fat cells become smaller, but do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty reducing the fat cells in these trouble areas.

After SculpSure treatment, the fat cells are permanently destroyed and do not return. Even that stubborn fat under your chin, known as the submental area, responds to SculpSure treatment.

What is a SculpSure treatment like?

The device has four heads, which Dr. Benz places directly onto your skin in a special frame that holds them in position. Having multiple heads allows her to treat multiple areas at the same time. Each head passes light through your skin to the tissues below. The applicator head alternatively heats and chills the skin, as the treatment damages the fat cells below.

SculpSure treatments are not painful, although patients typically report feeling a deep warmth and tingling sensation. While treatment of each area of your body lasts 25 minutes, you can have multiple areas done in the same session. After the procedure, you can leave the office and immediately resume your normal activities.

The company recommends getting the same area treated twice, in separate sessions, for optimal results.
