SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a laser treatment that eliminates fat cells permanently to help shrink stubborn pockets of fat. In a 25-minute session, the laser energy penetrates your outer layer of skin to disrupt the integrity of fat cells that lie beneath. When damaged, the fat cells cannot survive and your body eliminates them through its natural waste removal system.

Who is a candidate for SculpSure?

SculpSure is not meant for comprehensive weight loss. But if you’re close to your healthy weight but still have areas that are not responding to conventional fat loss efforts, SculpSure may be for you. The team at Lancaster Family Health recommends you have a body mass index of 30 or lower to see successful results.

What areas can be treated with SculpSure?

SculpSure treats those areas that commonly hang on to fat even when you’re of a normal weight. These include the:

  • Belly
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Back

The FDA recently cleared SculpSure to also address excess fat under the chin, too.

Do SculpSure treatments hurt?

Most people tolerate SculpSure treatments quite well. When the laser energy hits your skin, you feel a warmth and gentle tingling. No anesthesia or numbing creams are required.

How many treatments of SculpSure will I need?

Everyone has different aesthetic goals. Your provider at Lancaster Family Health develops a customized treatment schedule to help you get the results you desire. A single session of SculpSure can reduce up to 24% of fat cells in a given treatment area. Most people benefit from multiple sessions.

How soon will I see the results from SculpSure?

SculpSure results are evident after about six weeks with optimal results showing in 12 weeks. Results become evident as the fat cells are steadily eliminated over time.

What is the downtime associated with SculpSure?

SculpSure is noninvasive, meaning it involves no incisions, blood loss, or sutures, so there’s no downtime. You can go right back to your daily activities following a session. Many people elect to schedule SculpSure during their lunch break and return to work afterward.
