SculpSure is a revolutionary new fat-eliminating technique that is changing the way people think about weight loss. The method consists of a laser-based, non-invasive treatment that is used to target specific parts of the body which are most prone to accumulating extra weight. The treatment works to reduce or eliminate fat in the targeted area.
1. What does non-invasive mean?
A non-invasive treatment means that there is no surgery involved at all in the procedure. For this reason, that you don’t have to worry about any incisions, anesthesia, or other complications that are typically associated with direct surgical methods. Not to mention, non-invasive treatments can still provide great results but there is minimal discomfort, a quick procedure time, and little to no recovery required.
2. Who is SculpSure for?
ScupSure is effective for both men and women and has been used successfully on a large variety of body types.
3. How long does SculpSure take?
Depending on the extent of the fat you’re seeking to eliminate, the number of procedures that are required will vary. On average though, one procedure takes about 25 minutes and can target multiple areas at once.
4. How much does SculpSure cost?
The cost of SculpSure will primarily be determined by the number of applicators used during treatment. Depending on the area you’re targeted on your body, you may need to use one to four applicators per procedure. Some offices offer incentives and payment plans but due to the fact that SculpSure is a cosmetic procedure, it’s usually not covered by insurance.
5. How do I prepare before a SculpSure procedure?
Despite the fact that SculpSure is non-invasive, it is still important that you discuss the procedure thoroughly beforehand with your licensed practitioner. During this consultation, you should communicate which areas of your body you’re interested in treating and what your expectations are. Based on this information, the practitioner will tell you how many sessions you might need to reach your goals. It is also worth noting that in order to minimize the chance of bruising, you might be told to avoid blood thinners and painkillers such as Ibuprofen or aspirin a few days before you plan to have the treatment done.
6. Who can preform the SculpSure procedure?
Who is qualified to perform the SculpSure procedure is determined by local licensing rules. In general, the licensed practitioner may be a doctor, physician’s assistant, nurse practitioner, nurse, or an aesthetician.
7. Do I need to schedule a consultation in advance?
Although the first SculpSure consultation usually takes place right before the treatment, it is sometimes necessary to schedule a separate appointment. During this consultation, you should be prepared to discuss your medical history and what medications you’re currently on.
8. How does SculpSure work?
SculpSure is a type of lipolysis, which is a fat-eliminating process and it uses laser technology to “melt” fat cells away. During treatment, the SculpSure device is wrapped around you like a belt. Its applicators deliver a 1060-nanometer diode laser that reaches a temperature of 107.6 and 116.6°F. The reason for this specific temperature is that it is hot enough to destroy the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving other tissues unharmed.
9. What are the risks and side effects of SculpSure?
Some clients report that the heating phase of the treatment is accompanied with some minor pinching or tingling. Aside from this, few serious side effects have been reported and the procedure is generally considered to be very safe. That being said, because it is a relatively new procedure, research is still ongoing regarding the effects on the body. It is also reasonable to expect that after treatment, you may experience some soreness and stiffness and possibly even bruising in the treated areas.
