Fat reduction, SculpSure Q & A

What is WarmSculpting by SculpSure?

WarmSculpting is a laser treatment that targets fat cells that lie just beneath the skin. The heat energy disrupts the structure of these cells so they can no longer survive. Then your body eliminates the cells through your natural waste-removal systems.

Think of WarmSculpting by SculpSure as a noninvasive alternative to surgical methods of fat reduction. The system requires no injections, blood loss, or sutures, however, and is FDA cleared.

Where is WarmSculpting by SculpSure effective in reducing fat?

Areas that are commonly resistant to fat loss with diet and exercise are the ideal sites for WarmSculpting treatments. Dr. Kennedy can help you create a customized plan for areas including the:

  • Love handles
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Under the chin

WarmSculpting reduces up to 24% of fat cells in any given treatment area in one session.

How many WarmSculpting sessions will I need to see results?

Generally two sessions are optimal, but some people opt for multiple. Dr. Kennedy can help you determine how many sessions are best for your goals.

Your body needs time to flush the disrupted fat cells from your system. Results become evident in about six weeks with optimal results showing at 12 weeks.

Does WarmSculpting by SculpSure treatment hurt?

Most people tolerate WarmSculpting by SculpSure body contouring quite well. You can expect to feel warm sensations and light tingling as the SculpSure laser passes over each treatment area.

What kind of downtime should I expect with WarmSculpting?

WarmSculpting by SculpSure is noninvasive and has very mild side effects. You can go right back to work or other daily activities following a SculpSure treatment session. 

You may have some slight redness in the treatment area, but this should fade within a few hours.

How long do the results of WarmSculpting by SculpSure last?

WarmSculpting offers permanent results. As long as you maintain your weight and a healthy lifestyle, you keep your contoured frame. When you lose weight with diet and exercise, fat cells shrink, but always have the potential to swell back up if you should eat too many calories or are unable to regularly work out. 

The fat cells treated with WarmSculpting are gone for good and cannot regenerate or swell. If you do gain weight, however, other cells not treated with WarmSculpting could plump up.
