SculpSure Body Contouring

Medically reviewed by Richard Paul Greenberg, MD on 12/28/23

SculpSure is an FDA-approved non-invasive body sculpting and fat reduction treatment that employs laser technology to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells. The procedure, lasting about 25 minutes per session, focuses on specific areas such as the abdomen and flanks, delivering controlled laser energy to disrupt fat cells beneath the skin. The damaged fat cells are naturally eliminated by the body over time. 

SculpSure’s FDA approval underscores its safety and effectiveness in fat reduction, providing individuals with a non-surgical option for achieving a more sculpted appearance without the need for downtime or invasive procedures.

What is SculpSure?

The SculpSure laser system is a cutting-edge, non-invasive body contouring technology designed to target and reduce stubborn fat deposits. SculpSure utilizes laser energy to penetrate the skin and selectively heat the tissue beneath. The wavelength of the laser used is specifically chosen to be absorbed by fat cells, raising their temperature to a point where structural integrity is compromised. This process induces lipolysis, breaking down fat cells into triglycerides that are naturally eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system over several weeks.

What sets SculpSure apart from traditional fat reduction methods is its non-surgical nature and minimal downtime. Unlike invasive procedures, SculpSure doesn’t require incisions or anesthesia, making it a more comfortable option for individuals seeking body contouring.

Ageless Remedies SouthPark offers several other body sculpting treatments, but SculpSure stands out for its targeted laser approach for fat elimination. In contrast to Emsculpt, which focuses on muscle toning, Kybella, which involves injectable treatments to dissolve fat, and submental, chin, fat reduction with WarmSculpting profile treatment, which uses a laser for fat reduction, SculpSure stands out for its ability to precisely target and eliminate fat cells using laser energy. 

The science behind SculpSure’s laser energy lies in the specific wavelength chosen to optimize absorption by fat cells, resulting in a controlled and effective fat-reduction process that can work for anyone.

Benefits of SculpSure Treatment

SculpSure treatment offers several benefits that contribute to its popularity among individuals seeking non-invasive body contouring solutions, such as:

  1. Targeted Fat Reduction: SculpSure is highly effective in reducing stubborn fat deposits in specific areas such as the abdomen, love handles, and under the chin.
  2. Non-Surgical Procedure: SculpSure doesn’t involve incisions, needles, or anesthesia, eliminating the need for a recovery period and allowing individuals to resume their regular activities immediately after treatment.
  3. No Downtime: Patients can undergo a session during a lunch break and return to work or other daily activities without disruptions.
  4. Safety and Suitability: SculpSure is designed to be safe and is generally well-tolerated by various body types. The technology is customizable, allowing for the adaptation of treatment parameters to suit individual needs. The procedure has been clinically tested and approved by the FDA, further attesting to its safety and efficacy.
  5. Gradual, Natural-Looking Results: Results from SculpSure develop gradually over a few weeks as the body eliminates the damaged fat cells for a more natural-looking outcome.
  6. Versatility: SculpSure’s versatility extends beyond targeting common problem areas like the abdomen and love handles. It can also be used under the chin, addressing concerns related to submental fat and enhancing facial contours.

Ideal Candidates for SculpSure

Individuals struggling with stubborn fat in specific areas, such as the abdomen, love handles, or under the chin, are ideal candidates for SculpSure. These localized fat deposits are often a source of frustration, and SculpSure provides a non-invasive solution for targeted fat reduction.

It’s essential that candidates are free of active infections or skin conditions in the targeted treatment areas.

Additionally, candidates should have realistic expectations about the gradual nature of results and understand that SculpSure complements a healthy lifestyle rather than serving as a substitute for proper diet and exercise. Consulting with a qualified healthcare professional like Dr. Greenberg at Ageless Remedies SouthPark is crucial to determining individual suitability and developing a personalized treatment plan.

SculpSure Treatment Process

The SculpSure procedure involves several steps designed to provide targeted fat reduction with minimal discomfort for the patient. Each SculpSure session typically lasts around 25 minutes per targeted area. This relatively short duration allows for convenient scheduling, and multiple areas can be treated in a single session. A session may look as follows:

  1. Preparation: The patient is positioned comfortably, and the targeted areas are marked for precise application of the SculpSure laser. There is no need for anesthesia or special preparation.
  2. Application of SculpSure Device: The SculpSure device, equipped with applicators, is placed on the predetermined treatment areas. The laser energy is then delivered to the underlying fat cells.
  3. Laser Delivery: The SculpSure laser emits controlled wavelengths that selectively target fat cells beneath the skin. The temperature is elevated to disrupt the structural integrity of the fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues.
  4. Cooling Technology: Simultaneously, SculpSure incorporates a cooling mechanism to enhance patient comfort during the treatment. This cooling technology helps offset the warmth generated by the laser energy, creating a balanced and tolerable experience.


During the procedure, patients may experience alternating sensations of warmth and cooling. While the laser energy heats the targeted fat cells, the cooling mechanism keeps the skin’s surface comfortable. Patients often describe the sensation as tolerable, with some feeling a tingling or mild prickling. The controlled temperature modulation contributes to a well-tolerated experience, and patients can read, relax, or even take a nap during the treatment.

SculpSure Post-Treatment Care and Expectations

There is typically no downtime to SculpSure, and patients can resume their daily activities immediately. SculpSure requires 1 to 3 sessions over the course of 6 weeks for best results, which will start becoming noticeable in 6 weeks after the treatments as the body naturally eliminates the damaged fat cells.

The team at Ageless Remedies SouthPark will provide any other instructions for post-treatment care or maintaining results. It is typically recommended that you maintain the weight you were at when undergoing SculpSure treatment.
