SculpSure Q & A

What is Sculpsure?

SculpSure uses laser energy to penetrate the outer layer of skin and disrupt the fat cells that lie beneath. The fat cells are unable to survive, and as they die off, your body eliminates them through natural processes. Any treatment with SculpSure destroys 19 to 24% of fat cells in the targeted area.

What areas can be treated with SculpSure?

SculpSure targets many of the areas commonly resistant to conventional diet-and-exercise weight-loss strategies. These areas include:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Thighs

Talk to Dr. Heron about your problem areas, and he can help you determine if SculpSure is the right procedure for you. SculpSure is not designed for comprehensive weight loss, but is a way to remove smaller bulges of stubborn fat.

How many treatment sessions will I need to see results from SculpSure?

Many people are satisfied with just one treatment, while others opt for a series of sessions to achieve optimal results. Dr. Heron customizes a treatment plan for you that may include additional weight-loss counseling to help you achieve the look you desire.

When will I see the results of SculpSure treatments?

Your body needs a little time to get rid of the destroyed fat cells. You start to notice some difference at about week 6 and optimal results at week 12.

Do SculpSure treatments hurt?

Most people find SculpSure treatments to be quite tolerable. You’ll feel some heat, but it’s generally pain-free. Side effects are minimal — you may have a little redness and minor swelling that resolves quickly.

Do I need to schedule downtime following SculpSure sessions?

SculpSure is noninvasive, so you experience no injections, incisions, or blood loss. You can go back to all of your daily activities following SculpSure, including work and exercise. This makes SculpSure an extremely desirable alternative to any surgical means of fat loss.

How long do the results of SculpSure last?

SculpSure permanently destroys fat cells, so they cannot regenerate or plump back up. Your results persist for a lifetime as long as you don’t gain notable weight that causes remaining fat cells to swell.

Dr. Linda is wonderful - has never made me feel rushed. Highly recommend for Dysport. Her rates for Dysport are reasonable & substantially lower than my dermatologist


My experience at Heron Med Spa was awesome. I look great & feel great. I'm still healing and a little sore. I do everything they told me to do. I worked the same day.


Professional & prompt, Dr. Heron is an excellent surgeon. I had laser lipo on my neck & jowls. I am pleased with my result for two reasons: the results are phenomenal!

20 years ago I was referred to Dr. Heron for weight loss. I return every year to prevent gaining during holidays. If I am struggling with my weight I restart his program.


I had a laser session for scars with Barbara. The session was great - very knowledgeable. I look forward to going back.


I will definitely wear a bikini this summer. After two kids, I called Dr Heron. I only took pain medicine for three days and followed doctor's orders. My skin is tighter.
