SculpSure Body Sculpting Q & A

What is body sculpting?

Aesthetic body sculpting is a nonsurgical method of reshaping your face and body by eliminating troublesome skin and fat. Unlike surgical procedures that require incisions and lengthy recovery times, aesthetic body sculpting treatments use lasers, resulting in no downtime and no risk of infection or scarring.

Several types of body sculpting treatments are available that use different laser techniques to destroy fat cells permanently. Some use hot or cold temperatures, and others use pulses of focused sound waves. Each laser treatment provides different body contouring results for specific treatment areas.

What body areas respond to body sculpting?

Body sculpting can be used to safely remove excess fat and skin from your entire body, including your:

  • Arms and shoulders
  • Thighs and buttocks
  • Flank and abdomen
  • Lower chin and neck

 

While body sculpting isn’t a weight-loss tool on its own, it’s especially beneficial as an aspect of your overall weight-loss strategy. Dr. Kanumilli works with you to determine the most effective body sculpting treatment to provide optimal results.

What is SculpSure® body sculpting?

SculpSure is the world’s first FDA-cleared laser treatment for noninvasive lipolysis of the abdomen, flanks, back, and inner and outer thighs. Using warm laser energy to destroy fat, SculpSure treatments typically take 25 minutes.

During your SculpSure treatment, you might experience mild discomfort as your fat cells are warmed in the treatment area.

For optimal results, Dr. Kanumilli recommends multiple treatments four to six weeks apart.

What is Pellevé® body sculpting?

This innovative laser treatment uses high-frequency radio waves that tighten and massage your skin with heat. Often referred to as “The Knifeless Facelift,” Pellevé is used to treat excess skin on the neck and jowls. But it also effectively reduces the appearance of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks.

Pellevé is often used for:

  • Facial rejuvenation
  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Scar reduction

 

Pellevé treatments take approximately an hour. During your appointment, you might feel a warming sensation. You may also feel the deepest layers of your skin contract as new collagen is forced to form. This collagen improves the appearance of the uppermost layer of your skin.

The results of Pellevé can last for 12-18 months, but multiple sessions are recommended to achieve the greatest benefits.

Laser therapy treatments take place at the Floral Park office, but consultations with Dr. Kanumilli are available at both Queens locations. Call Janaki Kanumilli, MD Family Practice & Aesthetics or schedule your appointment online today to learn more.
