Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a popular, non-invasive cosmetic treatment that reduces pockets of stubborn, fatty tissue to create a svelte, contoured appearance. SculpSure by CynoSure uses the newest and most-innovative technology for body contouring and offers many advantages over other techniques, such as freezing body fat or liposuction. It is the perfect adjunct to nutrition and exercise to get the body you want.


What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an innovative and FDA-approved laser body contouring treatment that uses heat to treat fat cells. The unique four-headed applicator can be attached to nearly every trouble spot on your body from your thighs and flanks to your abs and back. Dr. Rosen also offers SculpSure submental, a unique applicator that is adapted to target the submental fat under your jaw that causes a double chin.

SculpSure works by targeting fatty tissue with laser energy that heats the isolated fat cells. Over the weeks following your treatment, your body absorbs the targeted cells and passes them out of your body with other waste products.  


What happens during body contouring treatment?

During your SculpSure laser body contouring treatment, you relax on a treatment bed for about 25 minutes. The SculpSure applicator is applied to your trouble spots. You can nap, read, or catch up on emails while the SculpSure laser does its job.

You may notice a warming sensation or mild discomfort during the treatment. It is often compared to a hot stone massage.

When your SculpSure body contouring treatment is complete, you can immediately resume your normal activities. It is important to drink plenty of water after treatment and get regular exercise.


How long do the results last?

SculpSure body contouring treats your fat cells, so as long as you maintain a consistent body weight, the results are lasting. Your body will not redistribute fat from other parts of your body to the area treated.

You should start to notice results a few weeks after your body contouring treatment and the full effects within 12 weeks.
