Even with diet and exercise, most people have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose. Sculpsure treatments are able to target and can reduce fat cells safely in just 25 minutes without affecting the skin’s surface. There is no recovery time following treatment, so you can resume your daily activities immediately. Most patients need multiple treatments to achieve optimal results.
Benefits of SculpSure
How SculpSure works
SculpSure is a type of lipolysis, a fat-eliminating process. SculpSure uses laser technology to “melt” fat cells away. During the SculpSure treatment, the SculpSure device is wrapped around you like a belt. Its applicators deliver a 1060-nanometer diode laser that reaches a temperature of 107.6°F and 116.6°F. This is hot enough to kill fat cells underneath the skin while leaving other tissues unharmed. The SculpSure device alternates between delivering a cooling effect and the heat laser. Each treatment takes about 25 minutes.
During the procedure, you can relax, read, or even take a nap. During the 12 weeks after the procedure, your body’s lymphatic system naturally flushes out the eliminated fat cells. If you need additional treatments to reach your desired results, they can be done 6-12 weeks or more after the first treatment.
What to expect during your Sculpsure treatment
When the treatment starts, initially you will feel a cooling sensation. This helps keep the skin comfortable during treatment. The cooling will be on the entire treatment, while the laser cycles on and off, raising the temperature of the fat cells. Most patients feel a deep warmth and/or tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated.
When will you see results from SculpSure?
You’ll notice improvements in about 6 to 8 weeks, but it can take up to 12 weeks to see the final outcome. Experts says that the same area can be treated again after several months, if more fat reduction is desired—and most people do require two or more treatments to get the results they want, since each Sculpsure session destroys up to 24% of fat cells in a targeted area.

The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remains constant throughout adult life. As we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller, but do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas. After the SculpSure treatment, the fat cells are permanently destroyed and will not return.
