SculpSure is an innovative laser body contouring procedure developed by Cynosure®. This FDA-approved treatment targets your unwanted fat on almost all trouble spots on your body including your:
SculpSure is suitable for people who’ve already reached a healthy body weight and want to get rid of inches on body parts that don’t respond to diet or exercise.
SculpSure has a unique four-headed applicator system that straps to your body and sends laser energy through your skin to target your unwanted pockets of fat. The laser energy heats your fat cells and disrupts their structural stability. This effectively destroys the fat cells so your body can absorb and remove them with other waste products.
In addition to destroying your fat cells, the SculpSure laser also provides a skin-tightening effect. The heat energy also stimulates collagen production, which helps tighten your skin for a smooth and contoured appearance.
Your SculpSure treatment begins when Dr. Varkey attaches the applicator to your body with comfortable straps. For the next 25 minutes, you relax on a treatment table as the laser attacks your fat cells. The SculpSure applicator head includes an alternating cooling treatment to regulate the temperature of your skin and ensure your comfort.
When your procedure is over, you can get right back to your normal daily activities, although you may want to avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment. Many patients opt to have SculpSure sessions during their lunch hour.
While individual results vary, most patients notice results within six to 12 weeks. Dr. Varkey provides custom advice on how many treatments you need to achieve your goals. You can have treatments every six weeks, and you can have more than one body area treated at a time.
The fat reduction is permanent, but you need to maintain your healthy diet and exercise habits to prevent new fat cells from growing.
