SculpSure Q & A

by Melinda M. Martin, M.D.

What is SculpSure?

You’ve done all the hard work and lost most of the weight, but nothing is more frustrating than the stubborn pockets of fat that won’t budge. No matter how many sit-ups or squats you do, nothing seems to work. As a body contouring tool, SculpSure may help you finally get the results you want from all that hard work.

SculpSure is a noninvasive FDA approved laser treatment that reduces fat in areas treated by the laser. It can be used on your stomach, thighs, and love handles. It can also be used to reduce the fat on your chin.

How does SculpSure reduce fat?

It sounds too good to be true, but SculpSure helps your body literally get rid of fat. The laser heats the fat cells to a specified temperature over a set period of time, destroying the cells. This heating process takes about 25 minutes.

The body then naturally gets rid of the damaged fat cells through normal body processes, namely the lymphatic system. It takes up to 12 weeks for the body to rid itself of these cells. Once the fat cells are gone, they don’t come back, leaving you with a flatter belly or smoother thighs.

The heat from the laser is set at a wavelength that specifically targets the fat cells, so there’s no damage to your skin. Additionally, SculpSure has a cooling system that keeps your skin from heating up.

Who can get treatment with SculpSure?

As the longest-practicing female physician in OB/GYN in Prescott, Arizona, Dr. Martin has a good understanding of the health struggles women face in Yavapai County. After a consultation and examination, Dr. Martin will determine whether SculpSure can help you achieve your health and weight goals.

It’s important to note, however, that SculpSure cannot help you lose drastic amounts of weight. It’s best suited for women who need a little extra help losing those stubborn pockets of fat they can’t get rid of with diet and exercise.
