Body Sculpting Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a gentle, nonsurgical fat-reduction treatment that uses therapeutic levels of laser energy to target and permanently eliminate areas of unwanted fat. 

This noninvasive and highly effective fat-reduction method uses specialized applicators to deliver specific wavelengths of energy directly into your fat cells without affecting your skin tissues or other nearby body cells. 

As this energy penetrates the targeted fat cells and heats them from the inside out, they can no longer function normally. Once your lymphatic system recognizes that these damaged cells are beyond repair, it flushes them from your body over the course of several weeks. 

The result? You’ll achieve a tighter, slimmer appearance without having to cut more calories, spend more time at the gym, or resort to surgical liposuction.


What are the benefits of body contouring?

Noninvasive body contouring gives you a way to spot-reduce unwanted areas of persistent fat, something you can’t do through diet and exercise. In fact, surgical liposuction is the only other way to achieve similar results.  

But traditional liposuction isn’t for everyone — as a major form of cosmetic surgery, it’s performed under sedation, requires multiple incisions, takes at least 90 minutes to complete, and requires several days of post-procedural downtime and recovery.

Noninvasive body contouring, on the other hand, doesn’t involve incisions or anesthesia of any kind, and a single session lasts just 25 minutes. More importantly, you won’t need to recover following your body contouring treatment, so you can resume your regular routine as soon as your session is over. 


How can body contouring help me?

If diet and exercise don’t seem to have the effect they once had, but you still find yourself wishing you could tighten, slim, or sculpt those last few trouble spots, then noninvasive body contouring may be just the solution you’re looking for.  

Dr. Shaya is pleased to offer WarmSculpting with SculpSure, one of the most advanced body contouring treatments available. It’s specifically designed to get rid of the belly fat, back fat, love handles, thigh fat, and extra chin fat that tend to be the most resistant to diet and exercise. 

When can I expect to see results?

Because the targeted fat cells are systematically flushed from your body over time, you can expect to see significant results about six weeks after your first WarmSculpting treatment. 

Optimal results occur about 12 weeks after your final session, once your body has completed the fat-flushing process. Each WarmSculpting session can destroy up to 24% of unwanted fat cells in treated areas.

What is WarmSculpting body contouring?

WarmSculpting with SculpSure is a noninvasive body contouring treatment designed to help you spot-reduce unwanted areas of persistent fat safely, effectively, and without surgery. It’s FDA-cleared to permanently reduce fat in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Thighs 
  • Under the chin

The treatment’s groundbreaking technology uses therapeutic laser energy to superheat the fat cells beneath the surface of your skin, without affecting the skin tissue itself. 

As this targeted energy permeates your fat cells, it disrupts their stability so they can no longer function. Over the course of a few weeks, your lymphatic system targets the damaged fat cells and naturally flushes them from your body. 


What is a WarmSculpting treatment like?

After an initial consultation to go over your cosmetic goals, Dr. Shaya develops a customized WarmSculpting treatment plan and explains precisely what you can expect before, during, and after the procedure. 

The SculpSure system comes with four specialized applicators that are placed flat against the surface of your skin. The number of applicators that Dr. Shaya uses depends on the overall size of the treatment area. 

When the SculpSure platform is switched on, and its energy begins to penetrate your fat cells, you may experience a mild tingling sensation, which most patients don’t find bothersome. A single WarmSculpting session takes just 25 minutes, and most people get optimal results over the course of multiple sessions.

WarmSculpting with SculpSure is a noninvasive, nonsurgical fat reduction treatment that doesn’t require any post-procedural recovery or downtime. It’s so gentle that you can schedule the treatment over your lunch break and return to work immediately afterward.


What kind of results can I expect?

When you lose weight through diet and exercise, your fat cells shrink as you burn more calories than you consume. You can’t control which fat cells shrink, and they remain present and ready to store extra energy as soon as you begin consuming more calories than you burn. 

WarmSculpting with SculpSure, on the other hand, gives you a way to spot-reduce unwanted areas of fat and destroy the targeted fat cells, while prompting your body to flush them away permanently. 

As your lymphatic system eliminates the targeted cells in the days and weeks following each WarmSculpting treatment, you can expect to see a slimmer, tighter figure with less pinchable fat and fewer unwanted bulges.
