Sculpsure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an FDA-approved, noninvasive approach to fat removal. The innovative technology ultraheats your fat using laser light. The high heat damages and compromises the fat cells, so that they die off over the course of several weeks. Once the cells are dead, your body eliminates them through its hardworking lymphatic system.

Where does SculpSure work?

SculpSure is perfect for your:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Underarms

You can even use SculpSure for submental fat, also known as a double chin. If you have other areas of concern, talk to the expert team at Artius Integrative Medicine so they can customize a solution for you.

What can I expect during a SculpSure treatment?

Once you’re comfortable in your private room, your provider guides a small handheld laser device over your skin in your target areas. The laser deploys heat energy that seeks and destroys fat cells without harming or damaging your skin.

Your skin will warm up and tingle, but SculpSure is well tolerated by most patients. The laser has several heat levels that your provider can adjust up or down according to your sensitivity.  It also has a built-in cooling mechanism to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure.

You can completely relax, read, catch up on emails and texts, or close your eyes and rest. The session takes about 30 or 45 minutes.

Am I a candidate for SculpSure?

SculpSure is not a weight-loss procedure. If you have weight to lose, talk to your provider about other options. SculpSure is ideal for men and women who are at their target weight but have areas where fat has accumulated but won’t respond to diligent diet or exercise.

How many SculpSure sessions do I need?

In general, most men and women need about three SculpSure sessions to get the best results. When you meet with your doctor at Artius Integrative Medicine, you’ll get a custom plan that reflects your fat-reduction goals, so you’ll know exactly what to expect.

You’ll be glad to know that as long as you stay at your target weight, the results you get from SculpSure are permanent. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can’t come back.

When you’re ready to pursue permanent fat reduction, call Artius Integrative Medicine or use the online scheduling feature to book your body-contouring SculpSure session.
