Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Dr. Adesomo and the rest of the medical team at Houston Women's Cosmetics use a SculpSure body contouring laser to treat stubborn fat pockets and other trouble spots where excess fat and cellulite lurk. Body contouring is a noninvasive way to get rid of excess fat deposits on your:

  • Arms
  • Neck
  • Thighs
  • Stomach
  • Love handles

The procedure is well-tolerated by most patients and is a permanent solution for fat reduction.

How does a body contouring laser work?

When you arrive at a body contouring appointment, Dr. Adesomo or another staff member uses FDA-cleared laser energy to heat up unwanted fat cells located beneath the skin without damaging the skin’s surface. This is possible because the SculpSure laser only targets your fat cells.

When the laser increases the temperature of fat cells, it damages the structure of the cells and destroys fat cells. Over the next few months, your body processes and eliminates these damaged cells through your lymphatic system.

During treatment, you may feel a slight tingling or warming sensation intermittently from the laser. SculpSure lasers contain a cooling system that keeps your skin comfortable when the laser heats the fat cells. Most patients tolerate the procedure well, and it lasts about 25 minutes.

Once your body eliminates the fat cells, they won’t return as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Body contouring treatment sessions can reduce fat in problem areas by up to 24% without the need for surgery.

What should I expect after body contouring?

After a body contouring procedure, the destroyed fat cells don’t come back. In about six weeks’ time, you’ll notice results from your treatment with optimal results appearing after about 12 weeks. You’ll notice fat reduction in problem areas, smoother contours, and less cellulite to give you the body and boost of confidence you deserve.

There’s no downtime needed after a noninvasive body contouring session, so you can resume normal daily activities right away.
