SculpSure Removes Fat Without Surgery, Here’s How

4 min read

By Clarissa Vanner

Are you tired of stubborn body fat that just won’t budge, no matter how much you exercise or eat healthily? Surgery might seem like the only option, but there are non-invasive treatments that can help you achieve your goals. One treatment you should consider is SculpSure, which is a revolutionary laser-based treatment that targets and eliminates fat without any surgery, anesthesia, or downtime.

In this article, we’ll explore the ins and outs of SculpSure, including how it works, what to expect during the procedure and the benefits of this revolutionary treatment. Say goodbye to stubborn fat and hello to a more confident you with SculpSure!

What Is SculpSure?

Sculpsure is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that aims to eliminate stubborn fat. It does this by using lasers, which emit targeted wavelengths of light and heat to destroy fat cells. The laser energy heats the fat cells, causing them to undergo a process called apoptosis. The destroyed fat cells are then naturally eliminated from the body over time through the lymphatic system as waste.

Jennifer Walden, MD, FACS, a New York City-based SculpSure pro, and board-certified surgeon tells Byrdie that studies show sculpture can destroy up to 25-percent of fat cells in the treated area. What’s more, the results are permanent as the fat cells will not regenerate. That said, you’ll still need to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle to prevent remaining fat cells from increasing in size and potentially diminishing the results achieved.

The Benefits of SculpSure

SculpSure offers a range of benefits but perhaps the most notable is its noninvasive. Unlike surgical procedures such as liposuction, SculpSure requires no incisions or anesthesia, and there is no downtime or recovery period required. SculpSure also causes minimal discomfort during treatment, making it a more comfortable experience for patients.

You’ll also enjoy that the treatment is relatively quick, lasting around 25-minutes per session, and can target multiple areas at once. Commonly treated areas include the abdomen, love handles, thighs, and even the face. One thing to keep in mind, it’s important to have realistic expectations and understand that it is not a weight-loss treatment but a body-contouring solution.

What to Expect During a SculpSure Treatment

During a SculpSure treatment, patients can expect to be in a comfortable, private room in a medical office or spa. Since the treatment doesn’t require anesthesia, you’ll be fully conscious throughout.

Before the procedure, a clinician will assess the treatment area and mark the specific areas to be targeted. During the procedure, the SculpSure device will be placed on the treatment area and a laser will be used to heat the fat cells, causing them to break down. Patients may feel a warming or tingling sensation during the treatment, but it shouldn’t be painful.

Recovery and Results

Though you may feel tingling or warmth during the treatment, these sensations will subside as soon as the treatment ends. There is also no recovery time after the treatment, meaning you can resume your daily activities once the treatment is complete.

Although results may vary from person to person, Healthline says many people notice a reduction in fat in as little as 6-weeks following the treatment. The source says clinical studies show that SculpSure can result in a 24-percent reduction in fat in the treated area after just one session. Full results are typically seen after 12-weeks, and most people may require a few treatments for optimal results.

Who Is the Ideal Candidate for SculpSure

The ideal candidate for SculpSure is someone who is in good health, has a body mass index (BMI) under 30, and leads an active lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet, but still has stubborn body fat that they would like to remove. Remember, SculpSure is not a weight-loss treatment, so it’s vital that you don’t have unrealistic expectations about losing a significant amount of weight through the procedure. Rather, SculpSure is intended to target specific areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

SculpSure is suitable for both men and women and can be used on various areas of the body, including the abdomen, love handles, thighs, and chin. Candidates who are pregnant or have certain medical conditions, such as a history of skin cancer or autoimmune disease, may not be eligible for the procedure. It’s essential to discuss your medical history with your provider before undergoing SculpSure treatment to ensure it’s safe for you.

How Much Does SculpSure Cost?

The cost of SculpSure treatment varies depending on a few factors, including the number of areas being treated and where you live. That said, on average, a single SculpSure treatment can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $1,500 per area. Some providers offer package deals that can bring down the cost, so it’s worth asking about any discounts or promotions that may be available.

There are also a few ways to save money on SculpSure treatment. Some providers offer financing options, which allow you to pay for your treatment in installments over time. It’s also worth comparing prices between providers to find the most affordable option in your area.
