Body Sculpting Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure® is an advanced noninvasive laser treatment that contours your body by trimming away areas of unwanted fat. Dr. Velez uses the treatment to give you the body you’ve worked so hard to get.

Because SculpSure is a noninvasive procedure, there’s no need for downtime following the treatment.

Who is a good candidate for SculpSure?

SculpSure is best suited for people whose body mass index is 30 or less, so at or near a desirable body weight. SculpSure isn’t meant as a weight loss tool, but as a method to help you trim those areas of fat that won’t budge.

It specifically treats unwanted fat on your:

  • Belly and love handles
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Chin

As a holistic practitioner, Dr. Velez strongly believes in the importance of diet and exercise for helping you achieve a more desirable weight, and she works closely with you to help you achieve your weight loss goals. She offers body sculpting tools like SculpSure to help you get even closer to your desired results.

How does SculpSure work?

The SculpSure laser heats and destroys your fat cells. Dr. Velez places the laser wand over the areas of unwanted fat, and the heat from the laser targets your fat cells under the skin, damaging them beyond repair.

The procedure itself is very pleasant. The laser gently warms and tingles your skin.

Over the next three months, your body’s metabolic processes get rid of the damaged fat cells. And once they’re gone, they never come back.

How many treatments do I need?

It varies, but most people need a series of treatments to get the best results. Dr. Velez can determine how many SculpSure treatments you need after a consultation and examination.

What happens after body sculpting?

SculpSure treatment rids your body of unwanted fat cells, but that doesn’t mean you get to give up your healthy diet and exercise program. Dr. Velez helps you maintain your new look with continued education on nutrition, fitness, and healthy lifestyle at each follow-up visit.
