What can be expected from the first SculpSure treatment?

First Treatment of SculpSure
Minimal pain, no restrictions on activity
After the procedure, no pain at all. I was back exercising (running) the next day. Had mild discomfort on one applicator site (1 out of 10), resolved very quickly. This really is a no downtime, comfortable procedure.
I can start to see results now (4 weeks post), however the company says it does take up to 12 weeks for optimal outcomes. I ll make a video shortly about my experience as a Specialist and what I really think of the device.
All the best

You will feel SculpSure working - but it won't be painful.
We’ve treated 10 patients over the past 2 weeks, and everyone has had about the same reaction: you’re going to feel a warming sensation, but it’s not painful. If you find a particular spot has warmed to an uncomfortable level, the nurse is able to adjust the treatment in that area, by turning down the laser on that panel. A warmer treatment is not necessarily a more effective treatment, so do let the nurse know if you’re feeling too warm in certain spot. For the few patients who have asked for the laser intensity to be adjusted, the correction has been quick and the treatment has been comfortable from that point on.
In studies, patients indicated an average 3/10 level of discomfort. You will feel it working, but it won’t be painful.
Our office prides itself on being early adopters of the most effective treatments. That’s why we were the very first office in the world to own a SculpSure machine. We LOVE this technology because it’s fast, comfortable, and effective – everything our patients ask for!

SculptSure Is A Fast Way To Sculpt Your Body
SculpSure causes slight discomfort and only takes about 25 minutes to perform. Heat is used to destroy fat cells so they can be permanently eliminated from the body. However, the heat is not intense enough to burn or damage surrounding tissue or skin. The 1060nm hyperthermic laser actually cycles through both heating and cooling phases throughout the procedure. You will start to see results after about 1.5 to 2 months. Final results are usually visible at 10 weeks. For most patients, there is no need for downtime. You may be a little sore afterward, but can go back to your daily activities. Please consult a board-certified dermatologist to learn how SculpSure can help you get the body you want
Does SculpSure hurt?
This is a good question to ask before receiving a treatment. We have treated many patients at our practice and have found the response pretty consistent from patient to patient. It can be mildly uncomfortable--similar to a cramp. The laser cycles from heat to cool and as the patient begins to feel uncomfortable is usually right at the time the cool cycle starts and they feel fine. It's best to read or play on your phone while having the procedure--something to distract yourself and make the time go by faster. As for pain afterwards, I myself have had the treatment and I thought it felt like I had been doing sit-up--a mild soreness, tender. Thank you for asking.
