SculpSure® Body Contouring Q & A


What is body sculpting?

Even with diet and exercise, it’s often difficult to lose those last few pounds. Losing weight and losing body fat are two different things. After weight loss, fat cells shrink but don’t disappear. Procedures to destroy fat cells are necessary to get rid of them forever.

Body sculpting, a highly-effective laser treatment, permanently removes stubborn pockets of fat in different parts of the body including the abdomen, back, flanks, thighs, and underneath the chin. Body sculpting is a painless, non-invasive alternative to liposuction and other surgical procedures.

Dr. McIlveen, Dr.Jastrzebski, and Dr. Moon prefer FDA-cleared Cynosure SculpSure® over other types of laser sculpting technology because it can be used on all skin types, requires no downtime, and has a 90% patient satisfaction rate.

How does Cynosure SculpSure® get rid of body fat?

Cynosure SculpSure® uses targeted laser energy to heat fat cells under the skin without disrupting, damaging, or scarring the skin’s surface. There are no incisions or other telltale signs that you’ve had anything done.

Cynosure SculpSure® heats fat cells until they are permanently destroyed. Your lymphatic system processes and flushes damaged fat cells out of the body in the months following treatment. Fat cells are removed for good.

Body sculpting treatment is painless and only takes around 25 minutes. Dr. McIlveen, Dr. Jastrzebski, and Dr. Moon apply a cooling treatment to keep your skin comfortable during the procedure. As the laser cycles on and off, you may feel a bit of warmth or tingling, but never any discomfort. Cynosure SculpSure® requires no recovery. You can go back to work or out on the town right from the office!

When will I see body sculpting results?

After Cynosure SculpSure® treatment, the body takes around six weeks to process and eliminate destroyed fat cells, though some men and women do see results earlier. Results are optimal around three months after treatment. Body sculpting results are permanent.

Dr. McIlveen, Dr.Jastrzebski, and Dr. Moon do treat several areas of the body in one visit, but they recommend waiting at least six weeks before treating the same area again.

You can finally be free of those trouble spots that won’t budge with diet and exercise. To learn more fat loss without invasive surgery, call or go online to schedule your Cynosure SculpSure® consultation today.
