SculpSure Non-Invasive Fat Reduction – 4 Things To Know

SculpSure Non-Invasive Laser Technology


SculpSure uses laser technology to heat up and kill fat cells.  The laser energy has been fine-tuned to selectively target the fat cells without impacting the skin.  In other words, the laser passes through your skin, without harming it.  This also means that SculpSure can be use any skin type and skin color.  After the laser energy harmlessly passes through the skin, it will encounter the fat cells.  The fat cells get heated up by the laser and eventually dies.  Then body’s lymphatic system then clears these fat cells from your body to make you look slimmer.  Each treatment can destroy up to 24% of the fat cells in the treatment area.

SculpSure Is For Stubborn Fat.  Not For Weight Loss.

SculpSure is ideally suited for patients with stubborn fat that won’t go away with diet and exercise.   These areas include the abdomen, the love-handles, the under-arm area, and “bra fat”.  We even have patients targeting their “man boobs.”  Most areas below the neck can be treated with the currently available applicators.  The face, neck, and chin cannot be treated at this time.  Each treatment can destroy up to 24% of the fat cells.  Our happiest patients generally get 2-3 treatments per area.  While you may look better and the clothes fit better, SculpSure does not directly induce weight loss or a significant drop in body fat.

SculpSure offers a broad set of applicators. The physician would decide which applicators to use on the patient, allowing for the most customized and individualized treatment of the problem area.  4 applicators are used in a single treatment. The photo shows 4 horizontal frames to cover the patient’s upper and lower abs.  As a reference, this male patient wears a size 32 pants.  Many many combinations can be created to fit and optimize the treatment around the patient’s body.

SculpSure Results Take Up To 12 Weeks

There is no downtime or recovery after a SculpSure treatment.  The treatment only takes 25min.  You can literally do it during a lunch break and get back to work immediately.  The results however can take up to 12 weeks.  This is because the procedure relies on your body’s lymphatic system to flush the dead fat cell from your body.  That just takes time.  Results can show up as early as 6 weeks, but we don’t consider the results to be final until 12 weeks.  Don’t keep checking the mirror and expect to see changes.  Change will come.  Be patient.

The Bottom Line

SculpSure is a promising way to treat stubborn fat pockets.  It may not be the most cost effective option if you are looking to treat a very large area or expecting to remove a large amount of fat.   If you have such expectations, you may want to look into good old fashioned liposuction. For non-invasive fat reduction, SculpSure is as good as it gets.  In 25mins, SculpSure can destroy up to 24% of the fat cells without surgery, pain, or downtime.
