SculpSure Body Sculpting Q & A
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is the first FDA-approved laser treatment for the reduction of excess fat cells without surgery. Dr. Northam uses SculpSure to reduce stubborn fat in your:
Dr. Northam may suggest SculpSure to remove fat that’s difficult to lose through diet and exercise as an effective alternative to traditional surgery.
How does SculpSure differ from liposuction?
SculpSure is a minimally invasive treatment that uses laser technology to eliminate stubborn deposits of fat. Following treatment, your body continues to naturally eliminate damaged cells for several months, leading to a slimmer, more contoured appearance. Treatment with SculpSure requires no recovery time or anesthesia, and you can expect to see full results within twelve weeks of treatment.
Liposuction, on the other hand, is an invasive surgical procedure that requires anesthesia and incisions. Liposuction can be an effective treatment for removing large amounts of fat, but it requires several weeks of recovery. There is also an increased risk of scarring following this type of surgery.
What are the benefits of SculpSure?
SculpSure effectively reduces stubborn fat cells if you don’t want or can’t tolerate surgery. The minimally invasive procedure provides several benefits over traditional enhancement surgeries, including:
- Fast and effective treatment
- No pain
- No anesthesia
- No recovery time
What can I expect during SculpSure treatment?
Dr. Northam discusses your expectations and reviews your medical history to determine if SculpSure is the right treatment for you. Before your appointment, she may suggest avoiding blood thinning medications and pain relievers to reduce your risk of bruising.
During the procedure, you may feel some tingling sensations, but the treatment is painless. You can expect to return to work and your usual routine immediately after your appointment.
Results will be noticeable several weeks after treatment, and they’ll keep getting better as the fat cells continue to leave your body. Dr. Northam may recommend a diet and fitness plan to help you maintain your results in the long term.
