How Does SculpSure Work?
The SculpSure uses an innovative, light-based energy laser with a 1060nm wavelength designed to reduce stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen and the waistline. This laser body contouring treatment can be customized for each individual patient due to the machine’s four applicators, which can be placed anywhere on the abdomen and flanks. The applicators use light energy to target and treat fat cells, allowing your body to naturally eliminate fat cells in the weeks following treatment. Laser fat reduction treatments deliver heat below the surface of the skin and destroy fat cells while the constant cooling technology helps provide a comfortable experience for the patient. SculpSure treatments are safe for most skin types and can provide long-lasting results.
What to Expect During SculpSure Treatments
A single laser body sculpting treatment with the SculpSure lasts less than 30 minutes and has the ability to treat multiple areas at once. Many patients start to notice results as soon as 6 weeks following fat reduction treatment, but best results are typically seen after 12 weeks. A slight tingling sensation can be felt during ScupSure treatments, but it is well-tolerated2 by patients. There are few side effects of body contouring which typically include some mild tenderness, swelling, and redness. Patients can return to their regular activities immediately following treatment, no downtime required.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is SculpSure right for me?
SculpSure is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise.
How many treatments will I need?
Every patient is different. We will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan to meet your desired goals. Call us at (408) 778-4684 to schedule a consultation and discuss what treatment plan is best for you.
What should I expect during the treatment?
Most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated.
How long will results last?
Treated fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate.
When will I see results?
Patients may start to see results as early as 6 weeks following treatment as the body begins to evacuate the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks.
How long before I can resume normal activities?
There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately.
What is the difference between fat loss and weight loss?
The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout adult life. After the SculpSure treatment, the destroyed fat cells will not return. However, as we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller, but typically do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas.
Achieving a slimmer, more sculpted appearance is possible with the help of SculpSure. Call Dr. Pamela Stuart at Physician's Skin Solutions to schedule a consultation and learn more about your customized SculpSure treatment.
