What’s the price of treatments?
The price is $199 per applicator per treatment. So a 4-applicator treatment costs $796 and permanently eliminates about 25% of the fat cells in the treated area.
Will SculpSure help me lose pounds?
No. SculpSure is not for weight loss. It is for reducing fat cells in a the targeted area that you just can’t get rid of no matter what you try.
Who is SculpSure for?
It’s most effective for someone with a BMI 30 or under who leads a healthy lifestyle, but still has stubborn areas of body fat cells they want to get rid of in order to improve their look.
Is the fat gone permanently?
Yes. About 25% of the fat cells in the treated area are gone forever. There are still fat cells in the area, just not as many. If you do gain weight, then the other fat cells that remain in the treated area can still grow larger.
Does it hurt?
Not really. Some of our clients equate the treatment to period cramping, but most people describe it as pinchy & tingly.
What areas can I get treated?
SculpSure is FDA-approved to remove fat cells from the stomach, love handles, back, and thighs.
Is SculpSure like CoolSculpting?
Yes and no. CoolSculpting frostbites the fat cells. SculpSure utilizes targeted laser energy to heat the fat cells, causing them to die. SculpSure can be used on people who have less fat in their targeted areas than with CoolSculpting.
How many treatments will I need?
Most people get two treatments; the final number depends on the results you’re trying to achieve. The number of treatments is discussed during your free consultation.
What are the side effects?
Most people have redness in the treated area that feels like a sunburn, but it goes away in a few hours.
What’s the downtime after treatment?
None. Stay out of a hot tub for a day, but you can go about your regular life immediately following your SculpSure treatment.
How long is a treatment session?
25 minutes. The SculpSure treatment itself is 20 minutes, plus a little more time for setup
How does body contouring work?⠀ ⠀
Using the applicators, laser energy is absorbed into the subcutaneous fat layer and water in the tissue is heated. The absorbed energy combined with alternating heating and cooling cycles, creates heat in the targeted fat cells. Temperatures in targeted tissues become elevated to the range of 42-45ºC and the cooling plates keep the skin cool to not damage the skin’s surface. During exposure, the fat cells cannot survive and begin to die, a process known as apoptosis. Damaged fat cells are then absorbed and removed gradually by the body’s lymphatic system resulting in PERMANENTLY reduced fat cell volume in the targeted area. In fact, our body contouring device can reduce fat in the treated area by up to 25%!⠀
