Long term results & side effects of SculpSure?
Doctor Answers 11
Thank you for your question. SculpSure utilizes heat on the subcutaneous fat to destroy it. Meanwhile, the feeling of heat on your body is counteracted through Contact CoolingTM technology to prevent damage to the skin and keep you, the patient, comfortable. I suggest that you next consult in person with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
SculpSure and Fat Melting
kills fat cells and eliminates them permanently. The only side
effects I've seen are short-term bruising, swelling, lumpiness and
soreness. This should all subside within days to months. Final
results take about three to four months to see. Your body will not
“revert,” unless you gain weight. Please see an expert. Best, Dr.
SculpSure is light (laser)

Depends where the 20 lbs are located
You mentioned that you are having difficulty losing 20 lbs and this is a common complaint of my patients after menopause, etc. SculpSure is indicated if it is in specific locations (abdomen, flanks, thighs, etc). If the weight is spread around everywhere, this may not be the correct procedure. Having said that however, the 1064 nm wavelength laser penetrates 3 cm and is excellent at causing destruction of fat cells. The surface cooling on the SculpSure keeps any thermal damage from occurring. In terms of what we will look like in 10 years, I don't think any physician will make a suggestion about that, but we can only predict that there may be improved technology in the future to solve those issues.
SculpSure is safe
The sculpture machine is the newest noninvasive technology to improve contours of the body. Instead of liposuction, this laser dissolves fat without surgery. The laser energy bypasses the skin and the wavelength that is chosen targets specifically the fat cells and causes them to die. It generally takes 6 weeks to see the results. It is not uncommon, that 3 treatments are required. This treatment will not cause any permanent problems in the future. Realize this is not a treatment for weight loss.
How SculpSure Works
SculpSure is an extremely effective non-surgical body contouring procedure. Ideal for treating stubborn pockets of fat, it is a specifically designed laser to target the fat cells, heating them so that they effectively die. Patients can expect about a 23% fat reduction in the treated areas. Very safe, the side effects include bruising and swelling. It typically takes at least 2 treatments for your final results, spaced 6-8 weeks apart. Hope this helps.
Thank you for your question. SculpSure™ is FDA- approved and non-invasive treatment in killing fat cells in unwanted areas such as flanks, abdomen, upper arms, thighs, knees, and other locations with fat deposits. The heating energy of the SculpSure™ laser also causes the production of collagen and elastin, making the treated area look firmer and younger. Please note that while it does kill fat cells it does not treat cellulite. For more information, I recommend getting a in person consultation with a board-certified dermatologist.
SculpSure works by engaging a controlled hypothermic 1060 nm wavelength to the body, targeting the fatty tissue. This wavelength is penetrated deep into the subcutaneous fat cells causing your body to eliminate the fat cells with minimal absorption in the dermis allowing for a safe and effective treatments for all skin types. The heated wavelength establishes a controlled hyperthermic temperature of 42°C and 47°C causing an injury to the adipose, without any damage to the dermal tissue. The damaged adipocytes will be absorbed and removed gradually by the body’s inflammatory process and the volume of fat in the treatment area will decrease. Patients can expect to see results in approximately 6 weeks with optimal results seen in 12 weeks. You may re-treat the same areas after 6 weeks.
