SculpSure is a non-surgical and non-invasive laser treatment that is FDA-approved for fat reduction in the abdomen, flanks, inner thighs, outer thighs, and bra bulge. It can treat all skin types and works by directing laser energy into fat tissue. SculpSure is a natural body process that eliminates injured fat cells over time. Each treatment cycle lasts 25 minutes and will remove 24% of fat in the area being treated. Results can typically be seen in as early as 6 weeks with optimal results shown at approximately 3-6 months. Some patients may need multiple treatments to obtain the desired results. To determine if you are a candidate for the Sculpsure treatment schedule your consultation with one of our nurses at Hazen Medical Spa today.

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 your treatment provider about the treatment plan that is right for you.
What should I expect during the treatment?
Most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently thoughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated.2
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.
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 is the difference between fat loss and weight loss?
The numbers of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throught 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.
