Non-Invasive Fat Reduction Q & A

What is noninvasive fat reduction?

Noninvasive fat reduction helps your body get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Unlike weight loss treatments like bariatric surgery, fat reduction procedures aren’t designed to help you lose weight. These treatments enhance your weight loss efforts by reducing trouble spots and tightening your skin for a toned appearance.

What is SculpSure®?

SculpSure is an FDA-approved laser body contouring treatment that targets pockets of unwanted fat. The procedure is approved to help your body get rid of fat on your:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Sides
  • Back

SculpSure is noninvasive and requires no downtime to recover. In clinical trials, SculpSure treatments destroy up to 24% of your unwanted fat cells in a single session.


How does noninvasive fat reduction work?

SculpSure works by raising the temperature of your subcutaneous fat to the point where the structure of the fat cell is destroyed.

SculpSure has a unique four-headed applicator that can be configured into different shapes to fit your body precisely. The applicator sends specific wavelengths of laser energy through your skin, specifically targeting your fat cells. In addition to the laser, the SculpSure applicator also provides a cooling blast of air to regulate the temperature of your skin during your treatment.

After your treatment, your body processes and removes the damaged fat cells with other waste products. Within six weeks of your treatment, you should start to see a reduction in your fat, with optimal results within 12 weeks. You may need a series of treatments to achieve your desired results. The fat is permanently removed from your body, and your skin is tightened to reveal your new, toned figure.


What should I expect during a SculpSure treatment?

SculpSure treatments only take 25 minutes. You sit in a comfortable chair while Dr. Fodero’s highly trained technicians attach the SculpSure applicators to your trouble spots. Then you simply relax while the lasers heat and destroy your fat cells. You can read, catch up on emails, or nap. You may notice a warming sensation during your procedure, but most patients tolerate it well.

SculpSure is completely noninvasive, and you can get right back to your normal activities after your treatment, although you should avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours after your procedure.
