SculpSure: All Your Questions Answered

Getting rid of unwanted fat cells forever sounds like a far-fetched, sci-fi fantasy, but with SculpSure® noninvasive body contouring, losing fat is within your reach. Dr. Jessica Cho offers this innovative, FDA-cleared laser treatment to men and women in the Los Angeles, California, area at Wellness at Century City. Read on to learn how you might benefit from this procedure.

Does SculpSure really “melt away” fat?

SculpSure precision laser technology targets the layer of fat cells underneath your skin, heating them to a controlled temperature. This heat doesn’t harm your skin in any way, but it does destroy the fat cells below.

Over the following three months, your body naturally eliminates the damaged fat cells from your body through your lymphatic system. All you’re left with is a slimmer, more sculpted figure. Once they’re gone, these fat cells don’t grow back, so they’re gone for good.

Is SculpSure treatment painful?

SculpSure may be one of the most comfortable ways to get rid of stubborn areas of fat because it’s not typically a painful procedure. The first sensation you feel during a treatment is a cool temperature. The SculpSure device has a built-in cooling system that keeps you comfortable throughout the entire treatment, which only takes about 25 minutes per area.

Many women and men describe the procedure as feeling deep warmth or tingling sensations that alternate with the Contact Cooling™ technology. People usually tolerate these sensations with minimal discomfort.

What happens after? Will there be bruising?

Following a SculpSure treatment, you may have temporary redness, tenderness, or firmness in the treated areas, but this usually goes away soon after. You can resume your normal activities immediately following a SculpSure session, without downtime. There shouldn’t be any bruising on your skin, either.

How soon do I notice results with SculpSure?

You may begin to see results as soon as six weeks after your first SculpSure treatment, and as your body continues to eliminate the targeted fat cells, you continue to see a difference. The treated areas become slimmer and smoother, and you may notice your clothes fitting better around 12 weeks after treatment, or even sooner.

Does it take more than one treatment to get rid of stubborn fat?

Everyone is different, and it depends on how much fat you want to get rid of. Dr. Cho customizes each SculpSure treatment plan to give you the results you desire. It may take a series of treatments spaced six weeks apart to reach your desired outcome.

Or, you may be happy after a single session. You can make that decision once you consult with Dr. Cho about your goals and the possibilities with SculpSure.

What areas does SculpSure treat?

SculpSure is FDA-approved to reduce fat in nearly every common problem area of your body, including:

In some instances, you may be able to treat more than one area during the same SculpSure session.

Who is a good candidate for fat-reduction treatments?

SculpSure is not a substitute for weight loss, so it works best on men and women who are close to their desired weight but want to reduce fat in specific areas of their bodies that don’t respond well to diet and exercise. Losing weight certainly helps your fat cells shrink, but that’s not the same as getting rid of them for good. When you want to reshape specific areas of your body, like your love handles and belly for a slimmer waistline, SculpSure is an excellent option.
