SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an FDA-approved laser body contouring treatment that permanently destroys fat cells. The doctors at Washington Healthcare Center can use it to target and destroy unwanted fat almost anywhere on your body, including your abdomen, thighs, back, arms, and even the submental fat under your jaw that gives you that dreaded double chin.


How does SculpSure work?

Depending on the are you’re having treated, your doctor will use either SculpSure’s unique four-headed applicator or a smaller device designed to fit under your chin. Both application devices deliver targeted laser energy to heat your fat cells without affecting the surface of your skin.

The heat from the laser compromises the structural integrity of your fat cells, ultimately killing them. Over the next 12 weeks, your body processes and removes the destroyed fat cells through your lymphatic system.

Unlike other body sculpting treatments, SculpSure also tightens and tones your skin leaving you with a smooth, contoured appearance.


Who is a good candidate for SculpSure body contouring?

SculpSure is most effective for generally healthy adults who are within just a few pounds of their ideal body weight but want to target those pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. SculpSure laser body contouring is suitable for both men and women and it’s effective on all skin tones.


What happens during a SculpSure treatment?

A SculpSure body sculpting treatment takes about 25 minutes and is pain-free. While you relax on the treatment table, your Washington Healthcare provider straps the SculpSure applicator to your targeted body part. You can nap, read, or catch up on your emails while the SculpSure laser heats and destroys your unwanted fat. Most patients experience a warming sensation and some compare it to a hot stone massage.

After your treatment, you can get right back to your normal activities, although you should avoid strenuous exercise for about 24 hours after your treatment. Over the next several weeks, your body will naturally eliminate the fat cells, leaving you with a slimmer, more toned appearance.

If you’re generally healthy and want to sculpt those trouble spots, call or schedule a consultation online today to find out if SculpSure body contouring is right for you.
