How SculpSure can help you lose unwanted fat without surgery or downtime

SculpSure uses a specialized laser that bypasses the skin to heat fatty tissue, releasing unwanted fat cells so that your body metabolizes them and eliminates them naturally from your body. It’s a fabulous procedure for the time-crunched patient who wants an effective, totally downtime-free option to lose unwanted fat:

  • It’s 100% non-invasive: no incisions, no needles
  • It’s comfy: no pinching, no suction, no freezing temps
  • It’s (really) fast: treatment takes only 25 minutes, even if you’re treating multiple areas
  • It’s effective for smaller areas: you don’t have to have a “pinchable” amount of fat to benefit from SculpSure
  • Results come quickly: in studies, patients reported seeing results in as little as 6 weeks, with final results in place 12 weeks after treatment

Am I a good candidate for SculpSure?

SculpSure can help you reduce small to moderate fat deposits on your abdomen or other areas without surgery or downtime. It’s best for patients who are generally happy with their shape. To treat larger areas of fat or reshape an area, liposuction may be a better option.

SculpSure is not a skin-tightening procedure. If you have loose skin as well as excess fat, you may get better results from another procedure or combination of procedures.

Is SculpSure safe?

SculpSure is FDA cleared as safe and effective when administered properly. The controlled heat from the laser reaches a precise temperature to dismantle fat cells without harming surrounding tissues. It’s essential to choose a qualified provider for any cosmetic treatment, including SculpSure.

Where on the body can SculpSure be used?

SculpSure is FDA cleared for reducing fat bulges on the abdomen and flanks. Depending on the patient, it can also be used on other areas, such as the inner or outer thighs or back.

How many SculpSure treatments will I need?

Just one SculpSure treatment can achieve noticeable fat reduction, and you may be thrilled with the results after your first treatment. However, everyone is different, and many patients choose to have follow-up treatments to further reduce fat.

How long does it take to see results?

The affected fat cells leave the body gradually, so noticeable improvements typically show about 6 weeks after treatment, with final results in place about 12 weeks after SculpSure. As long as you maintain a stable weight, your results should last for years.
