SculpSure Body Contouring Q & A
What is SculpSure body contouring?
SculpSure uses cutting-edge laser technology to rid your body of unwanted fat for good. This innovative procedure destroys fat cells, which your body then removes through natural processes. Because fat cells don’t regenerate, you permanently have less fat in your treatment area.
With this FDA-cleared procedure, Dr. Avila can eliminate fat on or around your:
- Love handles
- Underneath the chin
What happens during a SculpSure procedure?
When you have SculpSure body contouring at Avila Plastic Surgery, Dr. Avila fits the applicator belt over your treatment area and attaches the SculpSure device.
The SculpSure laser begins to cycle on and off, increasing the temperature of your fat cells. During this process, you may feel a deep warmth under your skin, but it’s accompanied by a cooling sensation on the surface of your skin that’s present throughout the procedure. This cooling protects your skin and eliminates any discomfort you may experience.
After 25 minutes, the treatment is complete. Dr. Avila disconnects the applicator belt, and you’re free to go. There are no restrictions, and the procedure requires no downtime.
When can you expect results from SculpSure?
You may notice your SculpSure results about four weeks after your treatment, but the maximum effect doesn’t occur until about week 12. There’s a delay in results because it takes time for your fat cells to die and then for your body to remove them.
After 12 weeks, your body has processed the majority of cells impacted by the SculpSure treatment, and you have up to 24% fat reduction in your treatment area.
Depending on your body type, where your unwanted fat is located, and how much of it you want to be removed, Dr. Avila may recommend multiple treatments to get optimal results. By the time patients have completed their entire treatment process, over 90% are satisfied with the results.
