"SculpSure is the new standard in non-surgical fat reduction."

Dr. Kyle Song

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a next generation body sculpting treatment that produces exceptional results. The innovative SculpSure applicator is applied to the fatty areas of the body, where it safely heats the fat cells and causes lipolysis – fat cell death. The dead fat cells are then reabsorbed by your body, leaving the area slimmer and more attractive.

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure works by heating the fat cells with a laser to a temperature that safely kills the fat cells. The special applicators, which lay flat on the skin, heat the fat layer. This is followed by a cooling of the skin’s surface so that the treatment is comfortable. Over six to twelve weeks, the damaged fat cells are expelled from the body through the lymphatic system.

Don’t just burn fat. Say goodbye* to it.

*Individual results may vary.

What is the procedure like?

Before your procedure, Dr. Song will mark the desired target area(s) and take photos. In our dedicated laser room, you will be resting on a comfortable treatment table. The SculpSure applicators are then placed on the appropriate areas of your body.

The first four minutes are called the “warming phase” in which you will experience minor tingling to mild warmth. Dr. Song will adjust the laser to match your comfort level. When the treatment begins, you will feel a 20-second period of warmth followed by 10 seconds of active cooling. The warming sensation is an indication that the SculpSure laser is in “fat destruction” mode. After your treatment is complete, you will be able to resume your normal activities. There is no post-procedure garment to wear or downtime with this procedure.

When can I expect to see results?

You can expect to see results in as little as four to six weeks, although everyone varies to some degree. Most patients tell us that they saw continued fat reduction for several months. For the best results, we recommend a package of three treatment sessions in the same area to achieve a 50% reduction.

What body areas can be slimmed with SculpSure?

SculpSure is FDA-cleared for treatment of the abdomen and flanks (love handles). However, “off-label” treatment is common, and many people choose to undergo treatments on the inner and outer thighs, back, arms, and buttocks.

How long will the results last?

The fat cells that are expelled after a SculpSure treatment do not regenerate. And although the treated areas will always be proportionally smaller, SculpSure is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and exercise, so maintaining a healthy weight is critical.

What is the difference between SculpSure and CoolSculpting?

SculpSure only takes 25 minutes per treatment, whereas CoolSculpting takes about an hour. Another distinct advantage is that SculpSure removes a higher percentage of fat than what is achieved with CoolSculpting (24% vs. 22%). CoolSculpting freezes the fat, which is effective but requires suctioning the fatty area into the applicator, which some people find unpleasant to experience.

SculpSure has applicators that lay flat and disperse the heat, blending the reduced area with the surrounding tissue. Because CoolSculpting suctions the area to be treated, it can result in “shelving” in an uneven result or unattractive ridge, as the freezing process is so specifically localized.

Can I have SculpSure if I have already had liposuction or CoolSculpting?

Yes. SculpSure can be used to treat residual fat in areas treated with other modalities, whether liposuction or CoolSculpting. SculpSure can also address the “shelving” effect that can occur with CoolSculpting.
