How long does it take to see results after Sculpsure, and how soon can you have a second procedure?

With sculpsure you guys told me it eliminates 24% of body fat, but it takes up to six to twelve weeks to see the most dramatic results? Also, with sculpsure can you see results or very little results at all if you not change your eating habits? Also, they tell me with coolsculpting after you first procedure you can have another procedure done after three months, after the first procedure? Can someone get a second procedure done with sculpsure if he wants better results after his first procedure?

Results from SculpSure

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

You can start to see results at 6-8 weeks and optimal results at 10-12 weeks. You can have a second treatment of SculpSure 6 weeks post from your first treatment.

It can take up to three months to see the final result following a SculpSure treatment. Usually treating a patient there is some mild swelling in the area which can take several weeks to decrease. Sometimes we advocate wearing a compression garment to decrease this effect. Second treatments can be performed about three months after the first treatment and can help optimize result.

Repeat SculpSure treatments

SculpSure will reduce subcutaneous fat on an average of 25% per treatment.  It takes up to 12 weeks to see the final results, but a repeat treatment can be performed after 4-6 weeks if needed.  Of course if you diet and exercise your result will be improved, but this is not part of the regimen.

Time after Sculpsure and when next?

Hi and thank you for your question!

Sculpsure can remove up to 24% of fat in one treatment.  That's the high end of success.  The response may be less that that , however, as each patient's fat cells respond differently.  Typically, we tell patients that it can take up to 3 months to see your full result, with re-treatment as early as 6 weeks afterward.

It's really important to maintain your body weight, drink a LOT of water (64 oz or more daily), and massage the area for 5-10 minutes twice a day after your treatment.

Hope this helps!

Length of time between treatment and resuls.

This is completely dependent on your own body. Your body decides how fast it disposes of your dead fat cells. Everyone’s body metabolizes these cells differently and while you should start seeing results around 6 weeks after your first treatment, you might not see your final results until about 12 weeks out. Some patients have noticed results as early as 2 weeks.  

I recommend detox diet, hydration, lymphatic massage to ensure mamimum results.

You may now have a second treatment done within 4 weeks instead of 6-8 weeks.

Sculpsure Results and Second Sculpsure Treatments

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Clinical studies show you can expect to see initial results from Sculpsure at 6 weeks, but we have some patients who swear that they have seen results much sooner. You should see continuously improving results for up to 12 weeks. We like to see our Sculpsure patients at both 6 weeks and 12 weeks post-treatment to track their results with photos and with body scans. These can be very exciting visits!

Many patients are excited and want a second Sculpsure treatment after seeing the results from the first treatment. Most patients can safely have a second Sculpsure treatment just 6 weeks after the  post treatment.  

Beautiful wishes,

For sculpsure, two treatments are needed to see a result, with each one done 6 weeks apart.  

Results and re-treating

You can start to see results in as little as 6 weeks, but optimal results in 12 weeks.  To retreat the same area, we suggest waiting at least 8 weeks.

6 weeks to slimmer body

Generally, SculpSure heated fat tissue resolves over 6-10 weeks.  By the end of six weeks, we retreat the area if patient desires further reduction.   In summary, 6 weeks to see a difference and time between treatments.

SculpSure Results

Some patients will see their results at 6 weeks, but for others, it can take up to 13 weeks. Personally, I treat most patients at least twice with the procedures spaced 6-8 weeks apart. Hope this helps.
