At Charles County Dermatology Associates, Dr. Berger uses SculpSure to treat patients for unwanted fat. SculpSure is a noninvasive, laser-based system for body contouring.

Ordinarily, the number of fat cells stored in people’s bodies remains the same throughout their adult lives. If you lose weight, the size of your fat cells generally become smaller. Unfortunately, they don’t decrease in number. For this reason, even dedicated dieters and fitness enthusiasts sometimes experience difficulties shedding fat in trouble spots. SculpSure treatments effectively destroy fat cells. Once these cells are destroyed, they won’t return.
SculpSure can benefit those seeking a noninvasive option to help them get rid of stubborn fat around their:
SculpSure uses a bracket of specially designed laser applicators to eliminate fat. Noninvasive, SculpSure doesn’t burn your skin. You won’t require any anesthesia for the treatment or experience any downtime. In fact, if you undergo a SculpSure treatment during your lunch hour, you can go back to work immediately after completing your procedure. A treatment typically lasts for 25 minutes.
Many patients begin to notice results in six weeks. These results occur as patients’ bodies start to empty the destroyed fat cells. Optimal results are typically noticed at 12 weeks. While most patients see results with only a single session, some may opt for additional treatments based on their desired outcomes. Dr. Berger can safely treat multiple areas of your body in the same day. However, he recommends you wait six weeks before returning to Charles County Dermatology Associates for an additional treatment on an area of your body he previously addressed. Depending on your aesthetic goals, Dr. Berger can create a customized, SculpSure treatment plan for you.
