Aftercare: SculpSure Skin Body Soul

Schedule a Consultation

SculpSure is one of our most popular treatments for a multitude of reasons. For one thing, SculpSure is non-invasive! You might feel a little discomfort around the treated area, but not enough for anesthetics. SculpSure is also a quick enough procedure to get done on your lunch break. But most importantly, there is no downtime after treatment. You can just grab your bag and go! 

For a procedure that gets you such great results in burning excess fat, you’re probably wondering what’s the catch… Well, there is no catch, but we do need to let you know that a med spa procedure will only have results as good as your aftercare. That’s why we wanted to give you a quick refresher. While our attention to detail at Skin Body Soul is impeccable, we do need to pass on some crucial knowledge for you to get the best bang for your buck, and most importantly, the results you deserve from your treatment. Think of this aftercare guide as a cheat sheet for all things SculpSure:

Massage the treated area for at least 5 minutes a day.

Massaging the skin:

  • Increases blood flow to the treated area
  • Reduces swelling
  • Helps break apart the fat cells under the skin so they can leave your body VIA your bloodstream

The best practice here is to gently rub the treated area for 5-10 minutes twice a day. And you should continue to do this for at least 2-3 weeks, or until your next treatment (if you’re scheduled for multiple treatments). Seems like a great aftercare routine. Who doesn’t like a massage? 

Drink lots of water and stay hydrated.

After your SculpSure treatment in Boston, unwanted fat cells are permanently destroyed. Drinking plenty of water after your treatment can help you stay hydrated and flush out unwanted fat cells and toxins from your body. Think about it this way. Staying hydrated will help you get the desired results you’re looking for. We’re all supposed to be hydrated anyways, so think of it as killing two birds with one stone! Your body will thank you, and you can always add some lemon to your water if you need some flavor. 

Avoid ibuprofen and other anti-inflammatory medications after treatments.

You should stay away from medications that impact inflammation, as they may weaken the SculpSure results. This list includes aspirin, naproxen, ibuprofen, celecoxib, diclofenac, and others. This isn’t a permanent part of the aftercare routine, but a 10-day break will show you optimal results. If you’re not sure about a certain medication, talk to your doctor and they’ll steer you in the right direction. 

Avoid prolonged sun exposure for 48 hours before and after treatment. 

This is one of those parts where you have to use some judgment. Sun exposure is not an all-or-nothing, make-it-or-break-it kind of thing. But you do need to exercise caution. We get it, if you live in Florida and have to drive to work, that’s technically sun exposure. Even then, it’s best to wear some 30+ SPF sunscreen daily for the next few weeks. You need to live your day-to-day life, but if you plan on going sailing, you might want to adjust your calendar because prolonged sun exposure will not feel good on your sensitive skin.
