SculpSure Q & A

Michael Silao, MD

What is SculpSure from Cynosure?

SculpSure is a laser fat-loss system from the leading provider of noninvasive laser treatments, Cynosure. SculpSure is specially designed to eliminate fat in certain areas, especially the abdomen and flank areas. SculpSure is a completely noninvasive treatment, requiring no incisions or anesthesia. You'll typically be in and out of the office of Michael Silao, MD, in under an hour.

How is Fat Eliminated with SculpSure?

SculpSure laser targets your fat cells to destroy them. As the laser penetrates the fat cells, they are severely agitated. This forces them to release their fat in liquefied form. Over time, that liquefied fat moves through your body and is eliminated along with other body waste.

Who is a Good SculpSure Candidate?

SculpSure candidates should be in good overall health and be at their ideal weight or quite close to it. SculpSure works best in patients who don't have excess skin, as this treatment only targets the fat but can't remove skin. The typical SculpSure patient is someone who has lost weight and is relatively happy with their body, except for a few problem areas.

If you're at a good weight but just can't get rid of that muffin top or those love handles, this may be the ideal treatment for you.

What Does SculpSure Feel Like?

Most patients experience a warming sensation but aren't uncomfortable during their SculpSure treatment. The SculpSure device emits quick blasts of cold air to offset the deep heat, which allows for maximum comfort during the procedure.

How Long Will SculpSure Take?

SculpSure takes only 25 minutes per area. If you're having just the muffin top area treated, it will take 25 minutes, while the muffin top plus the hips will take 50 minutes total.

How Much Recovery Time is Needed?

SculpSure requires no recovery time, a huge advantage compared to surgical methods for fat loss. You can schedule a SculpSure treatment and return to work or your daily routine immediately.

How Long Does it Take to Get Results?

Results come with time. Most SculpSure patients see a dramatic improvement at around six weeks after treatment. Optimal results are typically seen 12 weeks after the SculpSure procedure.
