SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure body contouring?

SculpSure is a revolutionary treatment that uses specialized lasers to target and eliminate fat cells. This treatment is noninvasive, which means it reduces fat without the incisions, anesthesia, or recovery time associated with surgery.

SculpSure is FDA-cleared to reduce stubborn fat in all the most common problem areas, such as the:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Thighs

SculpSure also offers an attachment designed specifically to eliminate fat in the submental area, which is the area under your chin.

When you lose weight with diet and exercise, your fat cells shrink but never leave your body. This may lead to bulges of body fat that linger despite your best efforts to lose them. But once SculpSure destroys these fat cells, they’re gone for good.

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure uses laser technology to heat fat cells in a controlled way that doesn’t damage your skin or surrounding tissues. The laser heats your fat cells, causing them to become damaged.

Then, your body recognizes these damaged fat cells as biological debris and flushes them out over the course of several weeks. This leads to gradual body contouring as opposed to the sudden transformation of plastic surgery.

How do I know if SculpSure is right for me?

If you struggle to lose stubborn pockets of fat that resist diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for SculpSure. However, SculpSure isn’t a treatment for weight loss. If you have a substantial amount of weight to lose, Dr. Kodama may recommend a weight-loss plan before you try SculpSure.

The best way to find out if SculpSure is right for you is to schedule a consultation at BioAge Health.

What should I expect from a SculpSure treatment?

First, Dr. Kodama discusses your concerns and ideal outcome during a consultation. If you’re a good candidate for SculpSure, she creates a personalized treatment plan that suits your needs.

Each 25-minute SculpSure treatment can reduce fat by up to 24%, though individual results may vary. Most patients see optimal results with a series of treatments spaced 6-12 weeks apart.

During treatment, you relax in a reclined position while Dr. Kodama applies the SculpSure applicators. Treatment isn’t painful, but you may feel a warming sensation.

Afterward, you can resume normal activities right away. You may notice fat reduction in as little as six weeks, with the best results appearing about 12 weeks after treatment.

To get rid of stubborn pockets of fat or say goodbye to your double chin for good, schedule your SculpSure consultation at BioAge Health. Call the Eagan office or book online today.
