Fat Reduction Q & A

Dr. Dennis Roberts

What is non-invasive fat reduction?

If, despite your best efforts to diet and exercise, you have pockets of fat on your body that won’t budge, non-invasive fat reduction may be your long-awaited answer.

Though you may lose and gain weight several times throughout your life, once fat cells are established, they never really go away. Non-invasive laser fat reduction attacks and eliminates existing fat cells without surgery, sutures, or the need for anesthesia.


Where can fat reduction be used?

Since the treatment is non-surgical, Dr. Roberts can target just about any area of your body. Common places that women treat with laser fat reduction are:

  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Love handles
  • Back


What type of fat reduction treatment is available?

There are many fat reduction technologies on the market. Dr. Roberts uses and stands by SculpSure, an innovative, body contouring laser than pinpoints fat pockets and eradicates them.


How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure uses diode laser technology to go after fat deep under the skin’s surface. The laser light heats up and destroys your fat cells, and your body’s intuitive lymphatic system flushes the cells away over a few weeks’ time.


How many treatments are required?

Schedule a consultation with Dr. Roberts to discuss your goals. After evaluating your health history, current physical condition, and fat reduction needs, he customizes a plan so you’ll know exactly what to expect. One treatment may be all you need, or if there are several areas of deeply embedded fat, Dr. Roberts may suggest additional treatments.


Does SculpSure hurt?

Since the component of SculpSure that’s so vital to fat reduction is targeted heat, you may feel warm, tingly sensations as the laser does its work. It’s brief and is well-tolerated by most men and women. The risks associated with SculpSure are negligible, which is one of the many reasons it’s surging in popularity.


How soon are results evident?

It takes a few weeks for your body to completely carry off and flush away the fat cells. In general, most women see results in four to six weeks with optimal results evident at the three-month mark.
