What happens to the fat after SculpSure™ treatment?

SculpSure™ destroys up to 24% of fat cells in the treatment area. Most patient need about 2 treatments in order to see a noticeable difference in fat cell reduction but individual results do vary.

“SculpSure is using heat to destroy the fat cells. It doesn’t melt them! Fat cells are gone and will not come back. Melted fat comes back, destroyed fat-does not.”

Can fat come back after SculpSure™ treatment?

There will be remaining fat cells in the area where the procedure was performed. If you gain a considerable amount of weight, like 10-20 pounds, the area where the treatment was made will have an increase because fat cells will get fatter.

Fat doesn’t travel anywhere.

Does SculpSure™ make your skin loose?

It does not stretch the skin.  A proper consultation should be performed prior to determining if one is a candidate for the treatment. It’s important to distinguish loose skin versus fat and also to set goals and ask for patient expectations as their options might be surgery.

“SculpSure heat technology is also collagen stimulating and many patients have noticed an improvement in the superficial skin texture in addition to the fat cells being gone.”

Will fat cells come back after SculpSure™?

Fat cells to dot multiply and will not come back.  The remaining fat cells might always get bigger is significant amount of weight is gained.
