SculpSure is a noninvasive body contouring tool that uses laser energy to melt unwanted pockets of fat off your body. Grace Gynecology & Wellness can use SculpSure to get rid of the fat from your:
SculpSure is also FDA-approved to remove the submental fat under your chin to improve your profile. This unwanted pocket of fat, often referred to as the double chin, usually doesn’t respond at all to diet and exercise.
The energy produced by SculpSure targets the fat cells under your skin, disrupting the integrity of the cell structure and thereby destroying it. Your body then takes the destroyed fat cells, processes them through your lymphatic system, and eliminates them from your body.
Dr. Shisler and her team at Grace Gynecology & Wellness determine if SculpSure is right for you after an examination and review of your aesthetic goals. SculpSure can help you lose unwanted pockets of fat, but it’s not meant to serve as a tool for weight loss. Ideally, you should be following a healthy diet and exercise plan and be close to your desired body weight with a body mass index of 30 or less.
When you first start your session, you feel a cooling sensation, which helps keep you comfortable while the laser energy works on your fat cells. Then, as the laser energy cycles on and off, you may feel an intermittent warming or tingling sensation. Treatment takes about 25 minutes and is well-tolerated by most.
There’s no downtime following your SculpSure session, so you can go right back to your usual activities when you’re done.
Depending on your aesthetic goals, you may need more than one session with SculpSure. The team at Grace Gynecology & Wellness creates a treatment plan before you get started so you know what to expect.
You may begin to notice an improvement in your shape about six weeks after treatment, but you won’t see the full effects until about 12 weeks. Once the fat is gone, it won’t come back. To keep your newly sculpted body, the team at Grace Gynecology & Wellness recommend you continue to follow your healthy diet and exercise program.
