SculpSure® offers patients a non-surgical method of reducing stubborn pockets of fat that have proven resistant to diet and exercise. It is the first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive fat reduction of the flanks and abdomen through heat-based technology. SculpSure® is a viable alternative to liposuction and takes as little as 25 minutes to complete the process. Since the treatment is non-invasive, most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after their session.
Who is a Candidate?
- SculpSure® is ideal for those who are in generally good health, are near or at their goal weight, but struggle with unwanted fat deposits.
- The treatment can be performed on any skin type and is customizable to the needs of each patient.
- SculpSure® is designed to sculpt the abdomen and flank area and can treat up to four areas at once, offering a convenient and efficient treatment process.
- The non-surgical treatment has an extremely high satisfaction rate, due to its ability to reduce stubborn areas of fat to create a more toned appearance.
- Clinical trials showed that on average patients achieved up to 24% fat reduction in their target areas with a single SculpSure® treatment.
- Virtually any area of the body, such as the arms, thighs, knees, “bra fat” and back can be treated off-label.

- SculpSure® is a laser light-based technology that works by targeting, heating and destroying fat cells in trouble spots, such as the abdomen and flanks. Unlike other procedures that use suction and cooling, SculpSure® involves a customizable plastic frame placed on the treatment area; this allows the flat laser applicator paddles to be secured in position to begin the process.
- During the treatment, light penetrates the skin which creates a warming sensation that is typically easily tolerated. This light energy reaches the fat cells, breaking them down without harming the surrounding skin and tissue. A built-in cooling system simultaneously works to combat the warming sensation by cooling the skin’s surface to increase patient comfort.
- Once the target area has been treated, the damaged fat cells will gradually be eliminated from the body through metabolic processes.
Recuperation and Healing
- Immediately following a SculpSure® treatment, patients can typically immediately resume their normal day-to-day activities.
- Contouring results should become more noticeable with time as the destroyed fat cells are naturally absorbed and removed from the body. Final results typically take about eight to 12 weeks to be apparent after the second treatment.
- Two treatment sessions are required at a minimum, separated by 6-8 weeks.
- Depending on the extent of the patient’s needs, they may require more sessions to achieve the best possible results.
- Up to 24% of fat in the treated area will be eliminated with the treatments.
