Even with diet and exercise, most people have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose. SculpSure’s body contouring technology is able to target and destroy these fat cells without affecting the skin’s surface, without surgery or downtime. SculpSure’s non-surgical 25-minute procedure uses light-based technology to permanently destroy up to 24%* of treated fat in problem areas such as the abdomen and love handles. Over time, these damaged fat cells are naturally absorbed and removed from the body, with results seen as quickly as six weeks, and optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks.

What to Expect

Upon arrival, patients will complete necessary paperwork that includes a medical history. Dr. McClerklin will review and discuss any pertinent details with you. After thoroughly explaining the SculpSure process, you will begin your free consultation in the examination room where your clinical provider will perform a small physical exam, listen to your needs, and evaluate what treatments may be ideal for the desired outcome. Should you decide SculpSure is right for you, we will then begin the treatment process.

“Before” photos will be taken so progress can be objectively monitored. You will have the option of wearing a clinic robe or leaving your clothes on with the treatment areas exposed as best we can. Once the treatment starts, your clinical provider will be with you during the treatment to assess, make adjustments to the machine or positioning as needed, ensure you remain comfortable throughout the 25-minute treatment and to further discuss your treatment plan.

Afte the 25-minute treatment is complete, you will be given some post-treatment instructions to follow. Prior to leaving, we will make your follow up appointments. You will then be on your way to resume your day with no restrictions. It’s really that simple!

At your first follow-up, which is around 6-weeks post-treatment, “after” photos will be taken and, if necessary, further treatments will be discussed. Your last follow-up will be at 12-weeks post-treatment for the last set of photos.

Take the first step.
