SculpSure is a laser procedure that removes fat cells. This technology crafted by CynoSure® -- a leader in creating light-based devices used in both clinical and aesthetic medicine -- features an advanced laser system that contours your chin by targeting fat cells.
However, it's only for people who need to remove small quantities of fat that diet and exercise can't touch. The technology doesn’t reduce significant amounts of fat, making it an ideal FDA-cleared solution for removing fat underneath your chin.
During a SculpSure procedure, Dr. Martinez uses a laser to heat the fat cells under the surface of your chin's skin safely for about 25 minutes. As the laser heats the cells, it compromises their structural integrity.
Typically, you experience the optimal results at approximately 12 weeks after you have the procedure, but you may start noticing a change six weeks after your treatment. Although you may require multiple treatments to receive the results you desire.
When the laser does cycle on and off, you may feel a deep warming or tingling sensation.
However, most people tolerate any discomfort that might occur during the procedure. Since the device cools your skin throughout the entire procedure, you remain comfortable the whole time.
After your procedure, you can return to work or your other daily activities immediately following your procedure. You might have soreness, stiffness, redness, or bruising on your chin from the laser. These side effects, however, are usually only temporary and tend to last during the first few days following your SculpSure session.
Once your body eliminates the fat cells targeted by the laser, they won’t regenerate. If you want to maintain the results, you should eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
