SculpSure Q & A
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a noninvasive, nonsurgical body-contouring laser treatment. Downingtown Family Practice uses this FDA-cleared procedure to reduce fat cells in areas including the thighs, chin, abs, and back.
SculpSure targets fat cells with cutting-edge light-based technology to encourage your body to flush them naturally. To do so, it safely heats up fat cells up to 47°C (or 117°F) without affecting or burning the skin itself.
What should I expect during the treatment?*
SculpSure is a localized treatment and targets one part of the body at a time. By applying lotion to the skin, Dr. Kelly ensures that the epidermis — the outer layer of cells covering your body — is not affected by the laser.
Once the process starts, you’ll feel intermittent periods of heating and cooling. You might feel a tingling sensation throughout the 25- to 30-minute-long treatment, but it is not painful.
What are the possible side effects of SculpSure?
SculpSure is not like other laser treatments, which can cause skin damage. Since the laser targets fat cells without affecting the outer layer of skin, the possibility of skin damage is highly unlikely.
However, you might experience mild tingling and swelling immediately after the procedure. That's temporary and will dissipate after the procedure is over.
Other side effects include redness, sensitivity, and tenderness in the affected area. In rare cases, some patients have had allergic reactions, but generally, you’ll be able to resume all normal activity after the procedure.
What results should you expect?
SculpSure targets fat that stubbornly resists diets and exercise.
The procedure will flush 20-25% of the fat in the treatment area. You’ll notice significant results within a few months of the procedure. The treatment works best when combined with a healthy diet.
SculpSure is not an alternative to a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise. Downingtown Family Practices offers comprehensive quality care to make sure you get the body shaping and contouring results you want without affecting your daily routine.
