Body Contouring Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure Body Contouring is a non-invasive laser procedure that uses targeted laser energy to destroy fat cells in the body without causing damage to the skin. The laser dramatically raises the temperature of your body’s fat cells to the point that those cells are permanently damaged.

Over the next three months or so, your body’s lymphatic system will naturally process and eliminate its damaged fat cells, decreasing fat cells by as much as 24 percent in the treated area.

Because your fat cells are structurally damaged and ultimately eliminated, they cannot regenerate in your body.

Am I a good candidate for SculpSure?

If you’re considering using SculpSure as a fat loss solution, talk to the experts at About Face Hawaii to determine whether you’re a good candidate.

The best areas to target with the SculpSure laser are the:

  • Upper abdomen
  • Lower abdomen
  • Double chin
  • Thighs
  • Love handles (flanks)
  • Bra roll (back)

Before scheduling an appointment, it’s important to note that the laser is intended specifically for those with problem areas, not as a weight loss solution. If you are relatively fit, with a BMI of 30 or under, you are the ideal candidate for SculpSure.

What can I expect from a SculpSure session?

Because one session of SculpSure only takes about 25 minutes, it’s perfect for a lunch break appointment.

When the treatment first begins, you’ll feel noticeable coolness around your targeted area, as it’s important to keep the skin comfortable throughout the session. The cooling sensation will stay on intermittently as Dr. Bartolome raises the temperature of the laser to destroy fat cells.

Most patients report feeling a warm tingling sensation in the targeted area, but it shouldn’t be unbearable or painful. Some patients may also feel a slight pinching effect.

There is absolutely no downtime with SculpSure, so you can return to work or your normal daily activities immediately after your appointment.

Over the next six weeks, you should begin to notice fat reduction around your targeted area, but it takes around three months to fully see results.

While SculpSure completely eliminates fat cells that cannot regenerate, it’s important to maintain your results by following a healthy diet and getting regular exercise.
