What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting is a noninvasive aesthetic procedure that reduces stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. The team of experts at Francisco Martinez, MD, use WarmSculpting with SculpSure, an innovative laser therapy that uses concentrated light energy to target fat deposits beneath the surface of your skin.

The WarmSculpting with SculpSure laser gently heats fat cells until they become damaged, and your immune system naturally eliminates them from your body. SculpSure has precision focus and a special cooling system so it won’t harm your skin and surrounding tissue.

Body sculpting with WarmSculpting with SculpSure offers results in up to 24% fat reduction for a more toned and contoured physique and renewed confidence in your appearance.

What areas can body sculpting with WarmSculpting with SculpSure address?

The Francisco Martinez, MD, team has advanced training and experience using SculpSure to safely reduce unwanted fat in the following areas.

  • Upper and lower abdominals
  • Upper and lower back
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Waist
  • Beneath the chin

The WarmSculpting with SculpSure 1060nm laser technology is FDA-cleared to remove fat cells with no downtime safely.

How many body sculpting treatments will I need?  

Your personal goals for fat reduction, your body composition, the area chosen for treatment, and other individual factors determine how many treatments you need for optimal results. Following your initial consultation, your specialist at Francisco Martinez, MD, designs a custom treatment plan to achieve impressive body contouring results that look and feel naturally beautiful.

What should I expect during my treatment?

Body sculpting treatments with WarmSculpting with SculpSure usually take 25-30 minutes. During your treatment, your provider will pass the SculpSure handpiece across the target area several times. You should feel some gentle warmth and tingling during the procedure, but most people don’t find the sensation painful or uncomfortable.

You can return to normal activities right after your body sculpting appointment. You might have some light bruising and stiffness in the treated area, but this usually subsides within 24 hours. More severe side effects are rare.

When will my results be visible?

Laser body contouring offers natural-looking results because your body eliminates targeted fat cells gradually over time. You should start to see initial results around six weeks after your first SculpSure treatment. After about 12 weeks, you’ll be enjoying the full effects of your stunning new silhouette.

Body sculpting isn’t a weight loss treatment, so ideal candidates should already be at a healthy, stable weight. If you’re interested in losing weight, Francisco Martinez, MD, offers weight loss programs to help you reach and maintain your ideal weight before beginning body sculpting treatments.
