What to Expect During Your First SculpSure® Treatment


Have you heard about SculpSure treatments? If you’re looking to eliminate fat that you’ve struggled to get rid of through exercise or diet, it might be for you. SculpSure is a body contouring treatment with the goal to remove resistant fat while also reducing and shaping the treatment area significantly. Some areas of the body are simply too stubborn to fix with dieting and activity, and SculpSure can be a great option to achieve long-lasting results.

How SculpSure works

SculpSure technology uses heat that directly targets fat cells safely and permanently. The heat raises the temperature of the fat cell to a level sufficient to kill the cell. When the cell is dead, it’s processed and removed naturally by your body. The fat cells are unable to regenerate themselves and they won’t be replaced by other fat cells. The stubborn fat is permanently gone from the treatment area.

SculpSure works for women and men of all body types and it can be used in areas such as your thighs, back, love handles, belly or under your chin. It’s a nonsurgical procedure that requires no downtime and has no known side effects.

It’s important to note that this treatment isn’t for people who are overweight or obese. SculpSure targets specific places of stubborn fat cells that seem resistant to diet or exercise.

Your first treatment

At your intake appointment, we get to know you, discuss your situation, and schedule your first treatment. During the treatment, your specialist at Atmosphere Med Spa wraps the SculpSure around the treatment area, like a belt. The applicators of the device deliver laser energy through your skin that reaches a temperature hot enough to destroy fat cells while not harming other tissues.

You won't feel much heat from the device because it also delivers a coolant during the process to keep your skin comfortable while the laser sends heat to the fat cells. Most patients don’t experience any pain or discomfort during the treatment, but you might feel some warmth or a tingling sensation.

The treatment takes about 25 minutes and when it’s finished, you can continue with your day as if nothing has happened. There’s no recovery or downtime involved so you can resume your daily activities immediately.

Expectations and results

Most patients are thrilled with the results they see with SculpSure. But it's important to manage your expectations for that first treatment. Results aren’t visible immediately. It takes time for your body to flush out the eliminated fat cells. After about six weeks, you might notice some fat reduction, however it takes 12 weeks until you see the full results.

If you decide you need additional treatments to achieve your goal, you need to wait 12 weeks after your first treatment before scheduling another session.

Is SculpSure right for you?

If you have a BMI of less than 30 but have some places with persistent fat that you can't seem to get rid of with diet or exercise and you don't want to undergo surgery, SculpSure might be a great option.
