Sure Body Contouring Q & A

by Vlad Nusinovich, MD

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that reduces the appearance of unwanted fat. Unlike liposuction, body contouring works through your skin to destroy fat cells for your body to remove naturally through the lymphatic system.

Body contouring is most effective if you are already at a healthy body weight, but are struggling to get rid of fat in a particular part of your body, often referred to as your problem area. You consider body contouring treatments after you have successfully lost weight and are struggling with those last stubborn 5-10 pounds.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a state-of-the-art body contouring system designed by CynoSure that uses laser heat to melt away your unwanted fat. This FDA-approved treatment uses a unique four-head applicator, which is strapped to your body during treatment. The treatment doesn’t involve suction and isn’t painful. You relax on a treatment table for 25 minutes. Many patients read or watch TV during treatment.

What happens during a SculpSure body contouring treatment?

You will relax, and Dr. Nusinovich will attach the SculpSure applicator device to your body. First, you’ll notice a cooling sensation. SculpSure alternates bursts of laser energy with a cooling blast to protect your skin and help you stay comfortable throughout the treatment. You may feel warm throughout the treatment. Some patients describe the treatment as feeling like a hot stone massage.

As you relax, the SculpSure mechanism uses targeted laser energy to break up fat cells, which are then absorbed by your body and passed out with other waste through your lymphatic system.

How soon will I see results?

You’ll start to notice the results of your SculpSure treatment around six weeks later. The full results of your treatment will be noticeable within 12 weeks. You may need more than one treatment to achieve your desired results. Dr. Nusinovich provides customized advice to each individual patient on the best treatment and number of sessions to help you reach your goals. If you have more than one treatment, you’ll need to wait six weeks between treatments for maximum effectiveness.
