SculpSure Q & A


What is SculpSure®?

SculpSure is an FDA-approved, non-surgical laser fat removal treatment. Dr. Leyte-Vidal uses it to destroy hard-to-reach fat cells and sculpt your body. SculpSure works by heating fat cells until they’re structurally damaged. Once damaged, the body eliminates them over the course of a few months. Damaged fat cells do not regenerate.

Dr. Leyte-Vidal performs each SculpSure treatment in about 25 minutes. To achieve ideal results, you’ll most likely need to attend a number of treatments. Each treatment session destroys about 24% of the fat cells you’re targeting. Dr. Leyte-Vidal will determine the number of treatments you require when you meet with him to discuss treatment.

What areas can I target with SculpSure?

You can use SculpSure to target those areas from which most people struggle to lose fat, even with diet and exercise. Examples of these areas include:

  • Love handles
  • Belly
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Under the chin

These areas are prime targets for SculpSure to remove unwanted fat.

When will I see results from SculpSure treatment?

You’ll start noticing toning in those areas that Dr. Leyte-Vidal has treated after about six weeks. This is about how long it takes for the lymphatic system to begin eliminating damaged fatty tissue. Typically, you’ll see the full results of this process within 12 weeks.

Is SculpSure right for me?

If you’ve reached your target weight and health level after dieting and exercising, but you can’t seem to get rid of problem fat pockets, SculpSure might be right for you. SculpSure isn’t for weight loss but instead designed to eliminate those fat cells that won’t go away, despite your best efforts.

If you’re ready to look as good as you feel, you owe it to yourself to try SculpSure contouring treatment.
