Body Contouring Q & A

How does body contouring work?

Body contouring aims to make traditional “trouble” areas sleeker and smoother. Stubborn fat that doesn’t disappear, regardless of your dieting and exercise efforts, shrinks so you get the shape you’ve always desired.

Dr. Divi uses SculpSure,a non-invasive laser treatment to help you achieve a naturally slimmer appearance.

What are the benefits of SculpSure?

Sculpsure uses laser energy to destroy fat cells permanently. This FDA-approved system heats fat cells to a point at which their structural integrity is compromised, so they break down and are eliminated through your body’s natural metabolic processes.

Sculpsure is non-invasive, meaning no incisions, sutures, or healing time. You experience no downtime following a laser body contouring session, so that you can resume your regular activities immediately.

Because the fat cells are destroyed, you don’t have to worry about them coming back. With traditional weight loss, fat cells shrink but always have the potential to grow larger again; with laser contouring, the fat cells are destroyed. The results are permanent.

What areas can be treated with SculpSure?

Stubborn areas of fat that haven’t shrunk with diet and exercise respond best to the treatment. Dr. Divi can treat large and small areas with laser contouring. Common sites include:

  • Love handles
  • Thighs – inner and outer
  • Belly
  • Back

What happens during a SculpSure session?

A SculpSure session lasts just 15 to 30 minutes. During the session, Dr. Divi applies the laser wand to the specified treatment areas. You’ll feel tingling, warmth, and prickling, but most people tolerate the treatment well. The laser constantly emits a cooling sensation to keep your skin comfortable.  

How many treatments will I need?

You’ll begin to notice results after just 6 weeks, but optimal results appear after 12 weeks. It takes this long for your body to eliminate all the destroyed fat cells. At this point, you may decide you want additional treatments to maximize your results. Each session effectively destroys up to 24% of fat cells in a given area.

Dr. Divi works with you to determine the optimal number of treatments to achieve the body that makes you feel and look your best.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a laser body contouring system that’s specially designed for the removal of stubborn fat pockets on the body. SculpSure sends laser heat into fat cells, forcing the release of liquid fat. This fat is, over time, eliminated from the body just like any other waste product is.

SculpSure Q & A

Who is a good candidate for SculpSure?

SculpSure is ideal for patients who are healthy. Most SculpSure patients are at their ideal weight, or close to it. The best SculpSure candidates are patients who have fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise. SculpSure offers impressive body contouring, but it’s not intended as a weight loss solution. Therefore, patients who need a weight loss solution need to lose extra weight first so they can get the optimal results from SculpSure treatment.

What areas can SculpSure target?

SculpSure treatment is especially effective in the belly and hip area, though it can be used in nearly any area where you have excess fat deposits. The FDA has also issued clearance for SculpSure submental procedures to contour what is commonly known as a “double chin,” or the fat surrounding your neck. 

How many SculpSure treatments are required?

The majority of SculpSure patients experience good results with just a single treatment. If you wish, you can have additional treatments based on your desired outcome.

What does the SculpSure treatment feel like?

The SculpSure treatment may produce a mild sensation of tingling and warmth. Most patients tolerate SculpSure treatment very well, with minimal discomfort. The whole treatment session only lasts around 25 minutes and you are able to go right back to your regular routine immediately.

When will I see the outcome of SculpSure treatment?

The results of SculpSure take some time, but they’re well worth the wait. You should start to see results around six weeks after treatment in most cases, but the ultimate outcome is evident around three months after the treatment. If you wish to have follow-up treatments, they can be scheduled at that point.

Is SculpSure permanent?

Yes, the results of SculpSure are considered permanent. When the fat cells are destroyed, they can’t regenerate in the same area. Although the results are long term, it’s important to be mindful of overall health, taking care to maintain a healthy weight.
