SculpSure FAQ

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring system for the reduction of stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen and love handles. The 25 minute procedure destroys up to 24%1 of treated fat cells without surgery.


Is SculpSure right for me?

SculpSure is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise.


How many treatments will I need?

Every patient is different. Your treatment provider will develop a customized treatment plan to meet your desired goals. Ask us about the treatment plan that is right for you.


How long before I can resume normal activities?

There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately.


What should I expect during the treatment?

Most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well­ tolerated.2


What is the difference between fat loss and weight loss?

The numbers of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout adult life. After the SculpSure treatment, the destroyed fat cells will not return. However, as we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller, but typically do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas.


When will I see results?

Patients may start to see results as early as 6 weeks following treatment as the body begins to evacuate the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks.


How long will the results last?

Treated fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate.

Is BOTOX® right for me?

It’s not your age that determines when BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you, it’s the severity of your lines. Everyone’s lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors, from cellular changes that may occur over time, to reduction of collagen, to genetic factors, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

Whenever your lines start to bother you, go speak with your doctor. They can help you determine if treatment is right for you.


What should I expect during the treatment?

The actual injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Then, some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.


When will I see results?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.
