Fat Reduction Q & A

Why focus on fat reduction?

When you lose weight, you want to lose fat instead of muscle. But when you use a conventional diet and exercise, you invariably lose a combination of fat and lean body mass.

SculpSure laser treatments target only fat cells for destruction. This means bulges that you can’t sculpt with exercise or diet can be reduced. You become sculpted and streamlined with effective, safe fat loss.

How does SculpSure work for fat reduction?

Dr. Kohn and his staff apply targeted heat energy to designated trouble spots. The SculpSure laser penetrates your outer layer of skin to disrupt the fat cells that lie beneath. The cells get so hot they can no longer survive, and are then eliminated through your body’s natural waste removal systems.

What areas are suitable for fat reduction?

SculpSure isn’t designed for comprehensive weight loss, but for targeted fat reduction in areas such as the:

  • Abdomen
  • Under the chin (submental area)
  • Back
  • Love handles
  • Inner and outer thighs

You should be near your normal weight to benefit from the fat-reduction treatments. Dr. Kohn can help you determine if SculpSure is the right way for you to achieve your fat-loss goals.

How long do the fat-reduction results last?

SculpSure provides permanent fat reduction. The cells treated with the laser die, so they can’t swell back up or regenerate. You maintain your results by avoiding considerable weight gain. Should you add weight later, it’s because your remaining fat cells can still plump up.

Do SculpSure treatments hurt or require a lot of downtime?

SculpSure is noninvasive, so you experience no incisions, injections, or blood loss. The only side effects are mild redness and slight soreness after treatment, but this resolves within a few hours. You can go right back to your daily activities, including work and workouts, afterward. No downtime is necessary.

When will I see the results of fat reduction?

Any single treatment results in the loss of up to 24% of fat cells in a given area. SculpSure results take a few months to fully show because your body needs the time to rid itself of the disrupted fat cells. Expect to notice some changes in about six weeks and your maximal results in 12 weeks. You can have multiple sessions of SculpSure to achieve the look you want. Dr. Kohn can design a customized treatment plan.
