Q&A about Sculpsure

What is body contouring with SculpSure?

SculpSure is an innovative laser system that offers permanent, targeted fat reduction in problem areas. SculpSure uses concentrated laser energy to destroy fat deposits beneath the surface of your skin, without harming your skin and surrounding tissues.

SculpSure treatments deliver focused heat to fat cells until they become damaged. Your body’s natural immune process then gradually eliminates the damaged cells over time, resulting in enhanced definition for a more contoured silhouette.

What areas can SculpSure treat?

The specialists at Lux Medical Aesthetics at Get Tight Spa have advanced training with the SculpSure 1060nm laser technology. They can safely reduce unwanted fat in the following areas:

  • Upper/lower abdominals
  • Upper/lower back
  • Love handles and flanks
  • Waist
  • Inner/outer thighs
  • Beneath the chin
  • Upper arms

SculpSure is FDA-cleared; it’s a noninvasive procedure that requires no downtime

Here’s an assortment of what we can do but the possibilities are endless

How many SculpSure treatments will I need?

When you have your initial consultation at Lux Medical Aesthetics at Get Tight Spa, your specialist creates a personalized treatment plan based on your body composition, your personal goals for fat reduction, and other individual factors. Most of the time, a series of two to three treatments depending on the patient, four weeks apart is needed to achieve optimal results.

It’s important to understand that SculpSure isn’t a weight loss treatment, and is best suited for people whose BMI is 30 or less.

What should I expect during a SculpSure treatment?

SculpSure body sculpting treatments typically take about 30 minutes per treatment area. During your session, you relax in a comfortable position, and the laser applicators are attached to the treatment area. You will feel cycles of warmth and coolness. Some people describe tingling or mild cramping during the heating cycle, but nothing intolerable. The intensity of the laser can be adjusted during treatment.

After your session, you may have some local tenderness or a small lump below the skin, but this should fade over the next few days. Gentle massages to the treatment area is encouraged to improve lymphatic flow to help remove the dead fat cells.

When can I expect to see results after SculpSure treatment?

With laser body contouring by SculpSure, your results will appear very natural because your body eliminates targeted fat cells over a period of several weeks. Initial results should start to become visible about six weeks after your first treatment. After 12 weeks, you can enjoy the boost of confidence that comes from seeing your impressive new shape and curves.

The fat cells targeted by SculpSure have been permanently removed; however, you’ll need to remain at a stable weight to maintain your results because remaining fat cells can plump up without proper nutrition and plenty of exercise.

Allison is AMAZING! I recently had botox and lip injections done and I am extremely happy with the results! It was my first time with lip injections and wanted a natural fullness to them without looking imbalanced. Well, Allison is a master at injectables! My face is so smooth and my lips are gorgeously and naturally plump. Goodbye to those awful “11’s” between my brows and deep forehead lines! I am so happy with my experience at Lux Medical Aesthetics. Allison is a true professional who is compassionate, knowledgeable, and caring. She advised me as to what products would personally suit me best to give me the most natural and longest lasting results. I would totally trust and recommend her to others! Not to mention the atmosphere of the office is so relaxing, and the location is super convenient. I’m so impressed by the array of services that they offer and am looking forward to trying out the Emsculpt services in the near future. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Carrie is so accommodating and very nice as well! I love this place and the services that you offer are the best! The name of this spa is the only thing that should be changed. Otherwise, everything is perfect! I highly recommend this medical spa!

Tristen and staff are wonderful! Facility is clean and professional. Tristen is extremely welcoming and did exactly what I wanted her too! I went in to remove some dark spots and acne on my face and she was able to get more done in the first treatment than I expected! After two laser treatments the results are amazing! She did a test spot on my skin to make sure my face was numb and calmed my nerves over any anxiety. I highly recommend Tristen for any service!
