SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is the first laser treatment to gain clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to remove unwanted fat from your hips and following areas:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Under the chin

During your SculpSure procedure, Dr. Sannoh applies a laser to the targeted area to heat fat cells to 107.6°F-116.6°F, which destroys fat cells but not other tissues or cells. The heat from the laser compromises the integrity of the cells, so they can’t survive. Then, your body reabsorbs them later.

Traditional weight loss only shrinks your fat cells, instead of destroying them, so they can enlarge again if you eat don’t follow your new diet and exercise routine. SculpSure eliminates those cells, and they never grow back.

What can you expect during a SculpSure procedure?

A SculpSure appointment generally takes 25 minutes per session but, because Dr. Sannoh customizes each SculpSure plan, this time may vary. You usually require only one or two treatments because she can treat multiple areas during one visit.

On the day of your appointment, you come into Dr. Sannoh’s office, and she connects a band with several lasers attached to it around the area targeted for contouring. When she starts the machine, you experience a cooling sensation that keeps your skin comfortable throughout the treatment.

Next, the lasers heat your skin. The lasers change from warm to cool intermittently, which may cause a warm, tingling sensation, to harm unwanted cells while minimizing your discomfort.

What can I expect after the SculpSure procedure?

Regarding results, it could take up to six weeks from the date of your appointment to notice the effects, and 12 weeks to see full results.

Immediately after SculpSure, you can return to work. You might experience swelling, redness, or irritation at the treatment site, but these reactions are short-term and usually doesn’t interfere with your daily activities.

Even years after your surgery, you more than likely won’t have any long-term side effects since none are currently known. SculpSure doesn’t create scarring or stretch marks.
