SculpSure Body Contouring Q & A
What is body contouring?
Body contouring is a treatment that uses noninvasive light therapy to help rid your body of stubborn fat and contour your body into the shape you’ve always wanted. With this technology, Evolution Medical and Laser can trim problem areas like your abdomen, flanks, back, and thighs.
How does body contouring work?
Body contouring utilizes controlled laser therapy that targets fat cells beneath your skin layers without damaging surrounding tissue. The process usually involves several applicators that rest on the treatment area.
The applicators have lasers that heat your fat cells, ultimately killing them in the targeted area. Your body then naturally and permanently eliminates these dead cells from your system.
What does a body contouring treatment involve?
Dr. Turner and Dr. Chuang customize your treatment to meet your specific needs, with sessions typically lasting around 25 minutes. However, the treatment time varies depending on the size and condition of the area you’re targeting, as well how many sessions are required to achieve your desired look.
During the session, your specialist might utilize up to four applicators at one time to achieve the best result based on your body type. Sometimes, two areas can be treated simultaneously.
The versatile applicators sit on top of your skin tissue, simultaneously keeping your skin cool while using laser energy to heat your fat cells. The cooling technology ensures that you don’t feel the heat and your skin remains at a comfortable temperature.
You might feel a slight tingling sensation during the procedure, but that’s normal. This noninvasive procedure allows you to return to your daily schedule immediately following your treatment session.
When can you expect to notice results with body contouring?
You can start noticing changes in your body as early as six weeks after your treatment. Typically, the most optimal results are seen about three months following your session.
The number of treatment sessions you’ll need depends on your unique body and your treatment goals. You may only require one treatment, while others who have more fat tissue may need multiple sessions for desired results.
