Sculpsure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a non-invasive treatment that uses lasers to target difficult to lose fatty areas usually in the abdomen, legs and buttocks. SculpSure is the first FDA-approved laser treatment of its kind. SculpSure is not a substitute for diet and exercise, rather it’s the best solution for those difficult to lose areas that many of us have. Your initial consultation with Dr. Flood will help him determine if SculpSure is right for you. With SculpSure and your specially trained dermatologist, Dr. Flood, You can now refine your body shape with significant reduction in your problem areas. SculpSure isn’t a substitute for diet and exercise, but if you have modified your eating habits and get regular physical exercise and you still have some fat you’d like to get rid of, SculpSure might do the trick. Dr. Flood’s initial consultation will determine if SculpSure is right for you. What happens during the procedure?

First, all you have to do is lay back and relax and enjoy this pain-free procedure. When Dr. Flood applies the SculpSure device to the treatment area, you will feel a cooling sensation. The cooling will continue throughout the procedure for your comfort. After adjusting SculpSure to the proper setting for the treatment area, Dr. Flood will apply the heat treatment to your body. The laser will cycle off and on, heating up and killing fat cells.

How long does a SculpSure procedure take?

ScupSure in-office treatments may take around half an hour, depending on how many areas are treated. Unlike invasive fat-reduction methods, like liposuction, there’s no anesthesia, no discomfort and best of all, no recovery time. When the procedure is finished you may go about your day as planned.

How long before I see results?

You may not see dramatic changes right after the procedure, but know that over the next 6-12 weeks, your body will naturally eliminate the damaged fat cells. These cells cannot regenerate so the results of these treatments are permanent. At the 6-week mark, you’ll go back to see Dr. Flood to assess your results to date and compare your before and after pictures. Your results may continue to improve through the 12th week and a 24% reduction of fat cells is often the result of a SculpSure treatment. Many patients are happy with just one treatment, but Dr. Flood will discuss further treatments if you have other problem areas SculpSure can address.
