SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

If you lose weight through healthy eating and exercise, your fat cells shrink, but the number of them remains the same. SculpSure is a laser treatment that effectively eliminates some of those fat cells, although it’s not meant to be used for weight loss. The result is a leaner, more contoured appearance in the treated area.

The SculpSure laser works by heating fat cells below your skin’s surface. As their temperature rises, the fat cells become damaged and are then permanently eliminated over time by your lymphatic system.

A series of treatments is recommended to get your best results. Dr. Covington or one of her certified team members fully assesses your needs to make a customized treatment schedule for you. Studies done by the creator of SculpSure show that up to 24% of fat cells in a treated area are destroyed during each session.

About six weeks after a SculpSure session, you’ll begin to see your new shape emerging, as your body discards the damaged fat cells. Your ultimate results come at 12 weeks, when the elimination process is complete.

What are the benefits of SculpSure?

SculpSure requires no surgery and is safe, gentle, and harmless to your skin. The FDA has cleared the treatment.

Your fat cells in those trouble areas are permanently removed.

SculpSure treatments are convenient. Each one takes a quick 25 minutes, and no recovery time is needed. Your treatments are tailored to your individual needs.

What areas does SculpSure treat?

SculpSure can target many different-sized parts of your body, including:

  • Belly
  • Back
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Double chin

What can I expect during my SculpSure treatment?

Dr. Covington talks with you before your session to plan the area(s) you would like treated. She is happy to answer any questions you may have about your SculpSure treatment.

As your treatment begins, Dr.Covington or one of her certified team members places the SculpSure applicator band on the area she’s marked to treat. The SculpSure equipment includes a cooling mechanism that stays on throughout your session to keep you feeling comfortable. Meanwhile, the heating laser cycles on and off, as it takes the targeted fat cells out of commission. Expect your skin to have a warm and tingling sensation during the treatment.

Immediately after your session, you can step back into your normal routine, and begin looking forward to your new shape.

If diet and exercise have done all they can and you’re ready for contouring with SculpSure, contact Waccamaw Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, LLC for your appointment, by phone or with their convenient online booking.
