Laser Fat Reduction Q & A

What is laser fat reduction?

Take advantage of SculpSure® laser body contouring treatments to reduce stubborn fat from specific areas on your body. The energy of the laser penetrates below the surface of your skin to target fat cells. The heat destroys the fat cells in the treatment area, and the cells are then evacuated through your lymphatic system over time. The surface layer of your skin experiences no damage at all.

Who is a candidate for SculpSure fat reduction?

SculpSure is not designed for comprehensive weight loss and isn’t successful for people who have a body mass index above 30. However, if you’re at a healthy weight and have trouble spots of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, the laser treatment may be right for you.

What areas can benefit from SculpSure fat reduction?

SculpSure is FDA-cleared to target fat in many common trouble areas. These include the:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Flanks

SculpSure can also reduce excess fat under your chin.

How does laser fat reduction differ from conventional weight loss?

Conventional weight loss achieved by eating less and moving more shrinks fat cells, but they always have the potential to plump back up should you not be able to move as much or indulge in one-too-many treats. With SculpSure laser fat reduction, the fat cells are permanently destroyed and exit your body, so they can never return.

How many treatments will I need to experience results?

A SculpSure session eliminates up to 24% of cells in the treated area. Many people experience the best results when they undergo a series of fat reduction sessions. The team at Lancaster Family Health can help you develop a treatment plan to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Does SculpSure laser fat reduction hurt or require any downtime?

SculpSure sessions do cause you to feel warmth and tingling as the energy is applied to your skin, but most people tolerate the sensations quite well. Because the treatments are noninvasive, you can go right back to your daily activities following a session. Laser fat reduction requires no downtime.
