One of the most frequently asked questions our providers are asked is how long will my SculpSure results last? We think you’ll like the answer. Keep reading to learn what you need to know.
SculpSure is a type of medical laser lipolysis that uses targeted wavelengths of heat energy to break apart and destroy fat cells. Since the instrument is specially tuned for adipose (fat) cells, the surrounding skin and tissues aren’t harmed.
The heat energy is transferred into your fat cells, destroying their structural integrity, which causes them to die. However, you won’t feel anything but relaxed and warm during your SculpSure session.
Once the cells die, your body’s natural cellular waste removal system — the lymphatic system — takes them away and processes them with other bodily waste. Each session takes less than 30 minutes and results in an average 24% reduction of fat in the treated area.
You can have SculpSure on almost any part of the body with excess fat, including the tummy, sides and abdomen, back, arms, thighs, buttocks, and under your chin. There’s no downtime needed, so you can come in for your SculpSure treatment and get back to your regular activities afterward.
It’s important to understand that with SculpSure, you won’t see results right away. Since you need to wait for the lymph system to remove the targeted fat cells, it takes about 6 weeks for results to become noticeable and 12 weeks for full results.
But the good news is that SculpSure treatments result in the elimination of the targeted fat cells. Since your body doesn’t replace these cells, they won’t regenerate after your treatment. In other words, SculpSure results are permanent.
Keep in mind, however, that if you gain weight, the fat cells in other areas of your body will grow. This can change your silhouette and cause you to develop new pockets of stubborn fat in other areas.
For the best results, after your SculpSure treatment it’s important to maintain a healthy body weight, eat a well-balanced diet, and continue to exercise regularly.
Remember: SculpSure isn’t a weight-loss solution. It’s best for healthy men or women at or near their target weight who are committed to maintaining this weight.
