Whether age, body composition, or genetics are to blame, sometimes it can seem impossible to reduce body fat with diet and exercise alone. SculpSure is a groundbreaking, minimally invasive, laser lipolysis system designed to lessen stubborn pockets of fat in areas such as the stomach, hips, flanks, and under the chin. The laser energy targets and destroys fatty tissue, helping you to achieve a slimmer appearance without surgery or a lengthy recovery period. Medical director Dr. Melanie Carreon at LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, TX is honored to offer SculpSure technology for the treatment of stubborn body fat. If you would like to learn more, call our office to schedule a private complimentary consultation. We look forward to meeting with you.
"When I came to Dr. Carreon’s office I didn’t know what to expect. I had driven an hour and a half from my home just to find a “female doctor” who would understand my desire body shape. Mary put me at ease right away and Dr. Carreon fit me into her schedule right away. I’m delighted with my new waistline. It makes me feel young again, at 41."- Anonymous / Office Visit / May 10, 2009

Dr. Melanie Carreon and well-trained staff will explain the risks and rewards of SculpSure at your scheduled consultation in our Seguin, near San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos and Austin TX office prior to your procedure. Though SculpSure is considered safe and effective for healthy individuals of any skin type or tone, it is important to us that your cosmetic healthcare is safe, personalized, and effective. Ideal candidates for the SculpSure procedure:
- Are interested in liposuction, but do not any downtime
- Are in good overall health and do not smoke
- Prefer a fat targeting procedure that will not require a lengthy recovery period
- Have problem areas of fat that are not responsive to diet and exercise
The SculpSure laser lipolysis procedure will be performed at LCS Medical Spa, AAAHC accredited medical office after consulting with Dr. Melanie Carreon. The treatment usually takes 25 minutes or less to complete, but this will vary based on the size of the treatment area and how many body parts are being addressed. The sculpsure handpiece will be placed over the area needing treatment, focusing on up to four problem areas. During the procedure, the laser technology melts the fat cells without affecting or burning your skin. Since the procedure is non invasive and does not require incisions, you can expect to feel back to normal following SculpSure and can return to regular activities immediately. Strenuous activity is not recommended for at least 48 hours.
What to Expect
Unlike traditional liposuction techniques, no incisions will be needed to perform the SculpSure laser procedure. You may begin seeing results in about six weeks, with most patients reporting maximum results 12 weeks after their treatment. During this time, your body will begin breaking down the damaged fat cells and flush them from your body. While SculpSure has proven to reduce fat cells by over 20%, it will not give you the dramatic level of change that surgical liposuction can create, just like any other non invasive fat reduction technology.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does SculpSure cost?
When contemplating a fat reduction procedure, patients may consider our surgical liposuction or a nonsurgical method such as SculpSure. The pricing associated with this nonsurgical route, should one be a candidate, is significantly less than surgery. During a private or phone consultation, we will create a custom treatment plan so that patients will understand how many sessions they need. Pricing is based on the size of the treatment area, the number of areas being treated, and how many sessions it will take to attain the right result. We offer financing options for our patients, with our monthly specials.
There are a number of laser liposuction methods on the market and the technology continues to only get better. SculpSure features the latest advances in non invasive laser technology, which makes it possibly more effective than some of the other systems that may require more than one treatment session. There have been several studies on the SculpSure technology, and both patients and physicians appreciate the results from a single, 25-minute treatment session. It's fast, effective, and may create the contour many patients desire.
Is it safe?
Cynosure is one of the most advanced technology companies in the cosmetic industry. They manufacture technologies that are FDA cleared, safe and effective that produce desired outcomes for patients. Cynosure is proud to have created SculpSure, which is the world's first hyperthermic laser lipolysis system. Approved by the FDA for fat reduction, the system was developed to use on patients of all skin types and tones and is considered one of the faster, safer, and easier systems on the market. This laser lipo system is also built with the new Contact Cooling™ feature, allowing patients to remain comfortable during their procedure.
Does it cause scarring?
Unlike traditional liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, and laser-assisted liposuction, SculpSure requires no incisions in the skin so patients will not have to worry about scarring after the procedure. The SculpSure hyperthermic laser is tuned to a frequency that affects the fat cells but not the surrounding tissue or muscle cells.
Does the fat return?
Laser liposuction uses laser energy that heats and destroys fat cells. Once these cells are broken down, it takes approximately 12 weeks for them to be naturally eliminated from the body. Patients can be reassured that these eliminated fat cells do not return. However, it is important to understand that new fat cells can still form. Therefore, it's important to adhere to a healthy diet and lifestyle to maintain the best results after a SculpSure treatment.
