Cynosure SculpSure Laser Q &A
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a noninvasive, permanent fat-reduction laser treatment. The laser energy targets fat cells in the treatment areas, so they’re disrupted and die. Your body permanently disposes of these nonviable fat cells through your lymphatic system.
Most patients experience a 24% reduction of fat cells in their treated areas. Dr. Shukla can target multiple areas in one session. Unlike fat loss achieved with diet and exercise, where the fat cells shrink but aren’t permanently destroyed, fat cells treated with SculpSure are gone for good and cannot return or replump.
Who’s a candidate for SculpSure?
This treatment is ideal when you have “trouble spots” resistant to diet and exercise. It’s particularly effective on specific areas of stubborn fat, such as fat on your:
- Love handles
- Double chin
SculpSure is not designed for comprehensive weight loss. Ideal candidates for Sculpsure treatments are within 30 pounds of their ideal weight or have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or below.
What should I expect from a SculpSure treatment?
During the treatment, Dr. Shukla applies the laser energy to your skin using a specialized handheld device. The number of sessions you may need vary per person and each session lasts about 25 minutes. You may feel warmth and tingling — but no pain.
You can go on with your day immediately following the treatment. There’s little to no downtime, so you can even schedule a session during lunch and go back to work afterward.
How many SculpSure treatments are necessary?
Exactly how many treatments you need depends on your goals and expectations. You’re likely to enjoy optimal results when you receive a series of two or more treatments. Dr. Shukla creates a customized treatment plan that helps you achieve the results you desire.
How soon will I see results from SculpSure treatments?
You’ll notice the full effects of SculpSure treatments within 12 weeks, which is how long it takes for the body to shed the fat cells destroyed during the treatment. But you don’t have to wait that long to see some improvement: You’re likely to see changes within six weeks.
