SculpSure is a body contouring system that reduces stubborn body fat by up to 24%. This FDA-cleared system is noninvasive, meaning it doesn’t involve surgery, anesthesia, or incisions.
Unlike surgery, SculpSure involves minimal discomfort and requires little to no downtime for recovery. This means you can sculpt the body of your dreams without telling anyone you had a procedure. SculpSure procedures take only 25 minutes and can treat multiple areas at once.
The SculpSure system uses a process called lipolysis, which involves destroying fat cells. The SculpSure device sends laser energy through the surface of your skin to target and “melt” fat cells. Then, your body naturally flushes out the destroyed cells over the next several weeks.
When you lose weight with diet and exercise, your fat cells shrink but never disappear. This often leads to stubborn pockets of fat that linger, despite your best efforts to lose them. The only way to permanently get rid of these fat cells is to destroy and remove them.
SculpSure reduces fat in several notoriously difficult problem areas — on all body types — and is appropriate for men and women. This procedure is FDA-cleared to treat the following areas:
If you have a body mass index (BMI) over 30, SculpSure may not be right for you. This treatment isn’t intended for weight loss. If you want to lose a significant amount of weight, Dr. Shaker may recommend a diet and exercise plan to help you prepare for SculpSure.
First, Dr. Shaker performs a physical exam and reviews your medical history to make sure you’re a good candidate for SculpSure. Then, he creates a personalized fat-reduction plan based on your body type and aesthetic goals.
During the procedure, you relax in a comfortable, seated position. Dr. Shaker wraps the SculpSure apparatus around the treatment area on your body, similar to a belt. The applicators alternate between delivering warming laser energy and a cooling effect that keeps your skin comfortable.
Afterward, you can go right back to your normal activities. You should notice results over the next 12 weeks as your body flushes the fat cells out of your system.
