Body Sculpting Q & A

What is body sculpting with SculpSure®?

You can be of a healthy weight, but still have areas on your body that bulge and refuse to let go of fat deposits. Spot training can’t reduce these areas, and no food plan will help you slim them. Body sculpting treats these stubborn areas so you get a figure that matches your diet and exercise efforts.

SculpSure technology uses laser energy to disrupt the integrity of fat cells that lie beneath the surface of your skin. The energy penetrates your outer layers without causing any damage and destroys the fat cells for good. Your body disposes of the cell remnants through your natural waste removal processes.

What areas can be sculpted with SculpSure?

Many areas that are typically resistant to fat loss can be treated with SculpSure. These include the:

  • Thighs
  • Chin
  • Back
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Abdomen

Dr. Kohn can treat multiple areas in one appointment, too.

Do SculpSure body-sculpting treatments hurt?

During a SculpSure session, you feel some heat and tugging, but most people find the procedure fairly comfortable. You don’t need any anesthesia or topical numbing cream for a session. While the laser energy feels warm, SculpSure includes a cooling cycle to relieve the heat.

Should I schedule recovery time after a SculpSure session?

SculpSure treatments require no downtime. You can go right back to work, school, or other daily activities after coming to our office for a SculpSure session. You may have mild swelling or light redness following a treatment, but this subsides quickly.

When will I see the results of SculpSure body sculpting?

Your body needs some time to eliminate the destroyed fat cells. Initial results are evident in about six weeks, but optimal results appear in about 12 weeks. Each session of SculpSure destroys up to 24% of fat cells in a treatment area.

How many SculpSure sessions will I need?

Dr. Kohn develops an individualized SculpSure plan to help you meet your goals. Body sculpting may occur in conjunction with other weight-loss strategies. Depending on your aesthetic goals, he may recommend multiple treatments that are spaced about 6-12 weeks apart.
