SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a noninvasive laser system that eliminates fat in any given treatment area. During a session, a technician from Metropolitan Elite Family Practice applies the specialized applicators to the desired areas. The heat energy penetrates the outer layer of your skin to reach underneath and disrupt fat cells. The fat cells are damaged, and your body eliminates them through its natural waste removal processes. SculpSure damages up to 24% of fat cells in the treated area in each treatment session.

What areas can be treated with SculpSure?

SculpSure can address a number of areas that are typically resistant to conventional methods of fat loss. These include:

  • Under the chin
  • The abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Inner and outer thighs

Discuss your goals for contouring your physique with Dr. McGee to learn how SculpSure can help you.

What are the side effects of SculpSure?

SculpSure has very few side effects. You may have some temporary reddening of the skin in treatment areas, but this disappears within a few hours.

No downtime is required following SculpSure sessions. You can go right back to work, school, or any other activities right after a treatment.

How many SculpSure sessions will I need?

Although you can choose to have only one SculpSure treatment, many people opt for multiple sessions for greater results. Dr. McGee can discuss it with you and together you can decide on the best treatment plan.

Does SculpSure hurt?

You may feel warmth and tingling during the SculpSure session, but most people tolerate the procedure quite well. No anesthetics or numbing creams are needed prior to treatment.

How soon will I see results from SculpSure?

Many men and women see results within just six weeks of treatment. Optimal results appear after about 12 weeks when your body has had a chance to eliminate all of the disrupted fat cells from the treatment areas.

Who is a candidate for SculpSure?

People who are near their healthy weight, but have pockets of fat around their tummies or thighs (or other areas) are the best candidates for SculpSure. The procedure is not designed for comprehensive weight loss.

After your treatment, you get the best long-term results by maintaining a healthy weight through a balanced diet and regular physical activity. The fat cells destroyed with SculpSure are permanently gone, but if you overeat or stop exercising, other fat cells can plump up and cause weight gain.
