Laser Body Contouring For Fat Loss With SculpSure
What is and How Does SculpSure Work?
SculpSure is the dawning of a new age of proven non-invasive laser body sculpting.
SculpSure is a diode laser system that has proven to be the smarter way to body sculpt. The Cynosure SculpSure Laser System is the world’s first FDA-cleared laser treatment for (non-invasive) lipolysis. Areas that can be treated include the abdomen, inner thighs, outer thighs, fat removal under the chin, as well as the back and flanks. This safe laser body contouring treatment is designed to effectively eliminate fat cells and stimulate collagen production for a smoother skin appearance.
SculpSure’s wavelength technology increases the temperature of the adipose (fat) cells in order to damage their structural integrity. Minimal absorption in the dermis leaves your skin’s surface (and muscles) unharmed. With SculpSure laser fat removal treatments, over a period of a few weeks, the body naturally eliminates these treated, unwanted fat cells and they will not regenerate. Destroyed fat cells are eliminated naturally through the body’s lymphatic system.
Laser Body Contouring – Pre-Treatment
A consultation will take place prior to SculpSure laser fat removal treatment. During a consultation it is highly recommended that all questions be answered in order to ensure the best possible care for you. Medical history, recent surgeries, and any prior treatments need to be discussed to determine if SculpSure laser body contouring treatments are for you.
Please be advised that this treatment that is not for everyone. If you are pregnant or if you are lactating it is strongly recommended that you do not have this treatment.
SculpSure laser fat removal is not invasive and no medications are required. Before receiving laser body sculpting or laser facial contouring treatments, the area that is being treated must be free of lotions or creams. It is also important to know that you must be well-hydrated and having a meal prior is highly recommended. SculpSure will not interfere with your daily routines. There may be some tenderness, but you can carry on with your plans for the day.
Laser Body Sculpting – During Treatment
One SculpSure treatment is a 25 minute procedure. If there are several treatment areas on the body then this may require several treatments per appointment.
Once you arrive for treatment you will be comfortably positioned on a chair or bed. Applicators will be placed at the targeted areas with a belt. The first four minutes of treatment temperature of the fat cells will increase to the optimum (but safe) treatment temperature. The temperature will be sustained for about twenty minutes and during this time you will be closely monitored to ensure your comfort level is maintained. Some clients may experience minor discomfort. There may be a sensation of tingling; and for some, minor peaks of warmth followed by cooling. Most clients find these sensations tolerable.
Treatment on one area can only be treated once within the same day. It is recommended that 4 to 6 weeks pass between treatments on the same area.
SculpSure Laser Body Contouring – Post-Treatment
After a body contouring treatment some clients say the treated area is tender to the touch. It is widely reported that the feeling is similar to having a great workout. This typically goes away in less than two weeks.
If you are an individual who enjoys working out then you will be able to resume your routines right away. In fact, exercise can help stimulate the metabolic process. Gently massaging the treated area is recommended after treatment because it may help stimulate the lymphatic drainage system which can enhance results.
To date, there are no reports of individuals experiencing increased skin laxity (loose or saggy skin) after treatment. However, if you are an individual; who has severe laxity in the areas you want treated, the results may not be what you desire. Asking a SculpSure therapist if this is right for you is highly recommended.
Maintenance body sculpting treatments are done at the discretion of the therapist and the client. Fat cells that are destroyed will not return; however, those that remain may increase in volume. SculpSure on its own won’t provide results for years to come unless there is a lifestyle change and you remain well-hydrated.
SculpSure laser fat removal technique does not require any compression hosiery.
Body Sculpting With SculpSure – Results
Treated fat cells are permanently destroyed. If you maintain a healthy lifestyle after body sculpting treatment then the results will be long lasting. Avoiding weight gain will help you maintain your results.
SculpSure does not leave any marks or lumps. This light-based technology provides a natural contour.
Until you have a consultation, it cannot be determined how many treatments you may require for optimum results. Many clients start to see results as early as six weeks following their first treatment. This is approximately how long it takes for the body to eliminate these destroyed fat cells. Optimal results are seen at about 12 weeks after the final treatment. Post treated areas will look smaller and more contoured.
Every client is different so it is hard to make a claim as to how much fat can be destroyed. However, some studies show that up to 24 percent of fat cells can be destroyed in a treated area.

• Mild swelling
