Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is an innovative way to sculpt your physique without undergoing risky and costly surgeries. Body contouring treatments interact with your fat cells to tighten your skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Among many noninvasive options for excess fat removal are:

  • Low-level laser therapy: Low-level laser therapy emits cold laser energy into your body tissue. The laser beams break down your fat cells, which your body then eliminates naturally.
  • Ultrasound: Ultrasound uses high-intensity, focused sound waves to dissolve your fat cells gradually over time.
  • Radiofrequency: Radiofrequency delivers controlled energy to your excess fat areas. This process creates heat deep within your fat cells and ultimately destroys them.

What is SculpSure®?

SculpSure® is a laser contouring treatment that defines and shapes your body. This noninvasive procedure permanently eliminates unwanted fat cells in your problem areas like your abdomen, thighs, or “love handles” around your waistline.

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure targets the unwanted fat cells underneath your skin. The laser beams turn up the heat on these cells, and your lymphatic system then naturally bids them farewell from your body. Also, the SculpSure laser treatment gets rid of that stubborn fat without damaging surrounding tissue.

What can you expect during the SculpSure procedure?

The treatment involves a versatile applicator that fits your specific body type. Each session takes about 25 minutes to contour your problem area. Keep in mind that the length of each treatment and the total number of sessions will vary depending on the size and condition of the area you’re targeting.

You might feel a slight tingling sensation during the procedure, but that’s completely normal. You go right back to your daily activities following a session.
