Body Contouring Q & A

How does body contouring work?

Body contouring aims to make traditional “trouble” areas sleeker and smoother. Stubborn fat that doesn’t disappear, regardless of your dieting and exercise efforts, shrinks so you get the shape you’ve always desired.

Dr. Divi uses SculpSure,a non-invasive laser treatment to help you achieve a naturally slimmer appearance.

What are the benefits of SculpSure?

Sculpsure uses laser energy to destroy fat cells permanently. This FDA-approved system heats fat cells to a point at which their structural integrity is compromised, so they break down and are eliminated through your body’s natural metabolic processes.

Sculpsure is non-invasive, meaning no incisions, sutures, or healing time. You experience no downtime following a laser body contouring session, so that you can resume your regular activities immediately.

Because the fat cells are destroyed, you don’t have to worry about them coming back. With traditional weight loss, fat cells shrink but always have the potential to grow larger again; with laser contouring, the fat cells are destroyed. The results are permanent.

What areas can be treated with SculpSure?

Stubborn areas of fat that haven’t shrunk with diet and exercise respond best to the treatment. Dr. Divi can treat large and small areas with laser contouring. Common sites include:

  • Love handles
  • Thighs – inner and outer
  • Belly
  • Back

What happens during a SculpSure session?

A SculpSure session lasts just 15 to 30 minutes. During the session, Dr. Divi applies the laser wand to the specified treatment areas. You’ll feel tingling, warmth, and prickling, but most people tolerate the treatment well. The laser constantly emits a cooling sensation to keep your skin comfortable.  

How many treatments will I need?

You’ll begin to notice results after just 6 weeks, but optimal results appear after 12 weeks. It takes this long for your body to eliminate all the destroyed fat cells. At this point, you may decide you want additional treatments to maximize your results. Each session effectively destroys up to 24% of fat cells in a given area.

Dr. Divi works with you to determine the optimal number of treatments to achieve the body that makes you feel and look your best.
