Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a nonsurgical option for fat reduction. SculpSure, Serenity Medical Spa’s body contouring treatment, efficiently destroys up to 24% of the fat cells in the targeted areas without damaging your surface skin. It has an impressive patient satisfaction rate of better than 90%.

This treatment reduces fat in all of the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Bra line
  • Upper arms
  • Chin

Your Serenity Medical Spa care provider can customize your SculpSure treatment based on your personal goals.

How does body contouring work?

SculpSure is a simple outpatient treatment at Serenity Medical Spa. Your provider positions the treatment paddles in the areas where you have extra fat and then starts the treatment while you read, watch TV, or just relax.

You might feel some warmth as the laser disrupts your fat cells to destroy them, but most patients don’t find it painful. After your treatment is over, you can return home or continue with your day as usual.

How long until I see body contouring results?

Generally, patients notice fat loss at around six weeks post-treatment. Your body steadily eliminates fat cells through normal bodily function for at least another six weeks, too. Most patients see full results at around 12 weeks post-treatment.

How does SculpSure compare to CoolSculpting®?

SculpSure uses laser heat while CoolSculpting uses fat freezing. SculpSure beats CoolSculpting in several important ways.

Coverage area

With SculpSure, the laser heat spreads slightly, which helps kill fat around the treatment area as well. With CoolSculpting, only the treatment areas are affected, and this can sometimes make the transition between treated areas and untreated areas look uneven.

Treatment flexibility

SculpSure has four treatment paddles, and your Serenity Medical Spa practitioner can group them together for large areas or separate them to cover two smaller areas at once. The CoolSculpting applicator treats just one area at a time.

The ongoing skin support

Although both SculpSure and CoolSculpting destroy fat cells, only SculpSure helps your skin look better afterward. After fat removal, your skin may sag slightly. The SculpSure laser heat triggers your body to make collagen and elastin, which tightens and smooths skin. CoolSculpting doesn’t do anything to improve appearance afterward.

SculpSure also happens to be faster: Your SculpSure treatment takes only around 25 minutes at the Serenity Medical Spa facility.
