Body Contouring Q & A


What is SculpSure®?

SculpSure® uses laser energy to damage fat cells underneath the surface of the skin. Your body then removes the fat cells naturally through the lymphatic system. The procedure is noninvasive, meaning it requires no incisions, involves no bleeding, and has a minimal recovery. Each treatment lasts just about 25 minutes.


What Areas Can Be Treated with SculpSure®?

SculpSure® is ideal for areas of your body that are resistant to traditional weight-loss methods of diet and exercise. These include:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks or love handles
  • Thighs
  • Chin

You may choose to treat multiple areas in one appointment.


Does SculpSure® Hurt?

Most people tolerate SculpSure® treatments well — you’ll experience a warm, tingling sensation that pulses on and off during treatment. The laser energy is hot, but SculpSure® emits a cooling cycle to relieve the heat.

The laser energy does not affect the outer layer of skin.


What is the Recovery Time Like After a SculpSure® Treatment?

You can go back to your daily activities right away. Schedule a SculpSure® treatment during your lunch hour and go on with your day right afterward. Some people may experience mild swelling or discomfort following a treatment.


How Soon Will I See the Results of SculpSure®?

It takes time for your body to dispose of the destroyed fat cells. You may notice initial results in as soon as six weeks post-treatment, with optimal results usually appearing in 12 weeks.


How Many Sessions of SculpSure® Will I Need?

SculpSure treatment plans are customized to your individual needs. The staff at Allura MD Laser Aesthetics may recommend multiple treatments, so you get the results you desire. If you opt for more than one treatment, they should be spaced about 6-12 weeks apart.


How Long Do the Results of SculpSure® Last?

Because SculpSure® destroys fat cells, the results are permanent. Expect up to 24% of the fat cells in a given area to be eliminated with one treatment.

This makes SculpSure® superior to fat loss through diet and exercise alone. With traditional methods, fat cells shrink, but they always have the potential to plump again. SculpSure® makes these cells go away forever, so the results last.
