SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure uses laser energy to reduce areas of stubborn fat on your body. It’s non-invasive, so you experience no incisions, blood loss, or sutures. Each session lasts just about 25 minutes and effectively destroys fat cells without damaging your outer layers of skin.

How does SculpSure work?

You lie on an exam table during the short procedure. Dr. Marfo uses a specialized wand to deliver the laser energy to the surface of your skin. The heat penetrates below to disrupt the fat cells, eventually causing them to die.

Your body will naturally eliminate the dead cells from your body. The result is a noticeable change in the volume of problem areas.

Where is SculpSure treatment effective?

SculpSure treatments aren’t for comprehensive, total-body weight loss, but for areas that fail to slim down from diet and exercise efforts. These include:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Love handles or flank
  • Chin

When can I expect to notice the results of SculpSure treatments?

You can expect to notice changes in treated areas within six weeks of treatment. Your body fully flushes out the destroyed fat cells in 12 weeks, which is when optimal results are apparent. Each SculpSure treatment has been shown to destroy up to 24% of treated fat cells.

How long do the results of SculpSure last?

Because the laser destroys the fat cells, the results are permanent. You can enhance your new look by continuing to follow a healthy diet and exercising regularly.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you’ll need depends on your goals and your body’s response to SculpSure. Dr. Marfo works with you to devise a specific treatment plan that’s best for you. Many people opt to receive a series of treatments for optimal results.

How long does it take to recover from SculpSure treatments?

SculpSure is non-invasive, meaning it involves no surgery. As a result, recovery is quick. You can go back to your daily activities, including work, right after a treatment. Although you might have a little redness after treatment, no special care is required.

Does SculpSure hurt?

Most patients tolerate SculpSure treatments well. Many describe it as a warm, tingly feeling. Cycles of cooling sensations alternate with the laser heat throughout a session to keep the temperature tolerable.
