Get in touch with the team by phone or online today to learn more about your body contouring options.
SculpSure is a noninvasive, nonsurgical, body-contouring laser treatment that gets rid of stubborn fat. Your practitioner at Oceans Contours typically uses this effective FDA-approved treatment to minimize fat cells in the thighs, abs, back, and chin.
SculpSure targets fat cells through a light-based technology that heats them up to 47 degrees Celsius (117 degrees Fahrenheit) to entice your body to eliminate them naturally. The heat won’t burn or affect your skin.
Your practitioner first establishes the areas of your body on which you wish to concentrate.
Once you’ve identified those locations, your doctor applies lotion to the skin to make sure that the laser doesn’t harm or affect the epidermis — the outer layer of cells covering your body.
After the lotion is applied, the procedure can start. SculpSure involves a series of intermittent heating and cooling blasts that leave you with a slight tingling sensation.
The procedure takes about 25-30 minutes and isn’t painful.
There are few known side effects of SculpSure. Other body contouring treatments generally have a high chance of causing skin damage. Since SculpSure targets fat cells from within, your risk of complications is minimal.
You might experience mild tingling and swelling immediately after the procedure. This is normal and will go away shortly after the procedure is over. You might also notice redness, sensitivity, and tenderness in the treatment area.
In rare cases, some patients have had allergic reactions both to the lotion and laser, but generally, you’ll be able to resume all regular activity after the procedure.
Studies have shown that SculpSure successfully removes 20-25% of fat in the selected treatment area. You’ll notice these results within a few months after the treatment.
SculpSure is not a supplement to healthy nutrition and regular exercise. You should speak with a team member at Oceans Contours to learn more about how you can maximize the results of the treatment.
