SculpSure Q & A

Advanced Dermatology Surgery Center

What is body contouring?

Body contouring improves your body shape by permanently removing areas of fat using noninvasive procedures. Noninvasive options like SculpSure work best for people who are close to a healthy body weight, but who still have pockets of fat that simply won’t go away with diet and exercise.

What body areas are treated with SculpSure?

Studies show that treatment with the SculpSure laser is a safe and effective way to eliminate fat. As a result, the device is FDA-cleared to remove fat from the abdomen, flanks (sides of your abdomen), inner thigh, outer thigh, and back.

How does SculpSure eliminate fat?

SculpSure is an advanced laser operating on a controlled wavelength that lets the laser pass through your skin to reach fat below the surface. The wavelength doesn’t harm skin, yet it’s easily absorbed by fat tissue.

Fat cells absorb the laser energy, which heats them to the precise temperature at which the cells are destroyed. After the fat cells break down, they’re naturally eliminated by your body via its lymph system.

What should you expect during SculpSure treatment?

The SculpSure device comes with four flat applicators that rest directly against your skin and send out lasers. Dr. Kardashian uses the number of applicators needed to cover the targeted area. Your entire abdomen can be treated in one session when all four are used.

Most people find they can tolerate the treatment because the SculpSure applicators contain cooling systems that keep skin comfortable. However, each person is different and Dr. Kardashian can apply a numbing cream, if needed.

The laser turns on and off throughout the session to maintain the right temperature in fat cells. You feel warmth alternating with cooling as the laser goes through each cycle.

Will you need time to recover?

You can return to your daily routine as soon as the session ends. Your skin may be slightly red, like a mild sunburn, but you won’t need recovery time.

When will you see results?

Your body needs a little time to finish clearing away the fat debris, so don’t expect to see an immediate difference. You may see results in six weeks, but it usually takes about 12 weeks to see optimal results.

One session with SculpSure takes 25 minutes. During that time, most patients lose 24% of the fat in the area treated.*
