Sculpsure Q & A

Los Gatos Dermatology

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an innovative body-contouring technique that leads to permanent fat reduction. Unlike other body-contouring procedures, such as liposuction, SculpSure is a noninvasive and nonsurgical approach to eliminating your unwanted fat.

Using state-of-the-art technology, SculpSure features an advanced laser light that specifically targets fat cells. This light penetrates these cells, destroying their integrity. Over the next 3-12 weeks, these cells die and natural body processes remove them.

What happens during a SculpSure treatment?

During a SculpSure treatment, Dr. Saal secures the laser device over your treatment area.As the laser cycles on and off, you may feel a tingling or deep warming sensation.

The procedure is noninvasive and doesn’t cause any discomfort. Many patients read, check emails, or even nap during the 25-minute procedure.

Once he completes the treatment, Dr. Saal disconnects the laser, and you’re free to go. There are no restrictions, and no downtime is required.

When can you see the results from SculpSure?

Most people begin to see results from their SculpSure treatment within six weeks, but maximum results aren’t visible until three months after treatment. To get optimal benefits, Dr. Saal typically recommends multiple SculpSure treatments.

Because this procedure permanently eliminates fat cells, these cells don’t return. If you maintain your current weight, the body-contouring results are permanent. If you do gain weight, you may notice less weight gain in the treatment areas when compared to non-treatment areas.
