SculpSure

The New Shape of Body Contouring

Coastal Empire Plastic Surgery is the regional leader in SculpSure, a breakthrough in light-based body contouring designed to reduce stubborn fat in problem areas such as the abdomen and love handles. SculpSure can help you achieve a slimmer and natural looking appearance without surgery or downtime.

Even with diet and exercise, most people have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose. SculpSure’s body contouring technology is able to target and destroy these fat cells in just 25 minutes without affecting the skin’s surface. Over time, these damaged fat cells are naturally absorbed and removed from the body, with results seen as quickly as six weeks, and optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks. There is no recovery time following treatment, so you can resume your daily activities immediately.

Information About SculpSure

SculpSure is the first FDA approved, non-invasive, warm-laser treatment for fat reduction. It is a hyperthermic device, meaning it uses heat to destroy the fat cells. The laser energy heats and destroys fat cells, leaving you with about 25% less fat. SculpSure is perfect for those areas of stubborn fat on the abdomen, flanks, bra fat, and thighs.

While heat is being delivered to the fat and surrounding tissue, the surface of the skin remains cool because of a contact cooling system. As a result of this contact cooling system, the skin remains unharmed. In addition, the laser’s heat also helps to stimulate collagen and elastin, the building blocks of healthy skin that will help the skin to appear firmer. The disrupted fat cells are filtered and eliminated by your body’s lymphatic system. This process can take six to 12 weeks to fully complete.

Finally, the SculpSure laser is color blind, so it is safe for all skin types. The ideal candidate will have a BMI of 30 or less. SculpSure is FDA cleared with proven results and high patient satisfaction. Because it is completely non-invasive, there is absolutely no downtime. SculpSure has a 91% “worth it” rating on RealSelf.com.

In just 25 minutes, we can treat an entire abdomen, or both of your love handles! In just 50 minutes – generally less times than it takes you to each lunch – we can treat both your abdomen and love handles. By comparison, to treat the entire abdomen and love handles with CoolSculpting takes six hours.

During the treatment, most patients describe a mild, warm sensation. Permanent results come in eight to 12 weeks as your body clears the fat from the treated areas.

Unlike other fat-reduction systems that require multiple treatments and that patients describe as painful, SculpSure provides excellent results with the first treatment and is well tolerated by all patients. SculpSure is also safe for all skin types. And there is zero downtime! You can literally have this procedure done on your lunch break and return to work and exercise as soon as you complete your treatment.

SculpSure is:

  • FDA approved
  • A highly effective treatment for eliminating unwanted fat
  • Effective on the flanks, abdomen, arms, thighs, and most areas with unwanted fat
  • Completely non-surgical and non-invasive
  • Requires no anesthesia
  • Painless; most patients feel varying sensations of warmth
  • Effective with just a single treatment
  • Fast, with a single treatment taking only 25 minutes
  • Great for your lifestyle, as there is zero downtime, allowing you to immediately return to work and exercise.

At your complimentary consultation, we will take a medical history and examine the area(s) you are considering having treated.

Plastic frame templates will be placed on the area(s) you would like treated to determine the number of applicators that will be needed to deliver the best results. In many cases, you can have your procedure done on the same day as your consultation.

Prior to having your SculpSure treatment, photographs will be taken that will be used to monitor your progress post-treatment.

Once in the treatment room, the area(s) being treated will be cleansed and the determined templates will be placed and secured with a soft strap.

Four applicators can be used at one time. The applicators are placed in the templates and your treatment is ready to begin. When your treatment begins, you will immediately feel a cooling sensation followed by an interval of gentle heat. This will continue for the 25-minute treatment and is well tolerated by patients.

Once your treatment is complete the applicators and templates are removed and you are able to leave our office and continue about your day. You can even exercise if you like. We recommend drinking lots of water to stay hydrated, and to massage the treated area twice a day for 5 minutes for the first 10 days post treatment. Patients can experience some mild tenderness similar to that of a bruise, but they all agree it was inconsequential and it did not affect their activities.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring system for the reduction of stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen and love handles. The 25-minute procedure destroys up to 24% of treated fat cells without surgery.

Is SculpSure right for me?

SculpSure is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise.

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 throughout the treatment, which is generally well-tolerated.

When will I see results?

Patients may start to see results as early as six weeks following treatment as the body begins to evacuate the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks

How long will 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 number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout adult life. As we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller, but do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas. After the SculpSure treatment, the fat cells are permanently destroyed3 and will not return.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

During a CoolSculpting procedure, a device is used to freeze your targeted fat cells. The frozen fat cells eventually die and are naturally removed by your body. However, only one area can be targeted per treatment, and each target area takes about one hour at a cost of approximately $600. To treat the entire abdomen requires four treatments – which takes about four hours at a cost of approximately $2,400. If you want to treat your love handles, too, then plan to schedule an additional two hours of treatment time (or six hours in all) and pay an additional $1,200.

How Does SculpSure Work?

As opposed to CoolSculpting, which uses cooling technology, SculpSure treatments are delivered by a laser system that heats your fat cells. By directing this laser technology into your stubborn, fatty areas, the laser heats and emulsifies the fat cells, essentially melting them. Once the fat cells are melted, they are naturally vacated by your body. Additionally, the heat from the SculpSure treatments encourage collagen and elastin production in your treated areas. This encourages healthy and youthful tissue growth, leaving your treated area not just thinner, but more taut and beautiful as well.

The Difference in Treatment Times and Cost

With SculpSure, four areas can be treated at the same time in 25 minutes at a cost of $350 per area. As such, to treat the entire abdomen takes 25 minutes at a cost of $1,400, versus four hours and $2,400 for CoolSculpting. If you also treat the love handles, it will add an additional 25 minutes to your treatment at a cost of $1,400.

Comparatively, with SculpSure you can treat both the abdomen and love handles in 50 minutes at a cost of $2,800, while CoolSculpting takes about six hours at a cost of approximately $3,600.
