SculpSure Q & A

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an innovative laser that removes stubborn fat without the need for surgery. This type of noninvasive fat loss effectively contours your body, but it’s not intended for major weight loss. The best candidates are patients who are at or near their healthy weight and want to use SculpSure as part of their holistic weight-loss plan.


What body areas can be treated with SculpSure?

Based on science-based research showing SculpSure’s safety and effectiveness, the US Food and Drug Administration cleared the laser to treat six body areas. You can use it to reduce stubborn fat under your chin and on your abdomen, back, flanks, inner thighs, and outer thighs.


How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure operates on a wavelength that’s only absorbed by fat cells. This allows the laser to travel safely through your skin, while effectively treating the targeted pocket of fat.

The laser’s energy heats fat cells just to the point where the temperature makes them break down. Your body naturally removes cellular waste, so the treated fat is permanently eliminated.

However, you can regain fat in the same area if you start to put on weight. That’s why Dr. Youdim incorporates ongoing dietary therapy to give optimal results and maintain your weight for the long term.


What should I expect during my SculpSure session?

The SculpSure device comes equipped with four applicators that can be used together to cover a large area like your abdomen or back, or used individually to treat several areas. After Dr. Youdim securely places the applicators against your skin, the device is activated and sends laser energy into the fat cells below the surface.

The applicators have a built-in cooling system to keep your skin comfortable while maintaining a steady temperature in the fat cells. Throughout your 25-minute session, you’ll feel periods of warmth and cooling as the laser cycles on and off.

When your session is finished, your skin may be slightly red and swollen. However, these side effects don’t last long, and you can immediately return to your normal daily activities.


When will I see results after treatment with SculpSure?

You’ll start to see results in six weeks, with the full effect visible in 12 weeks. You may lose up to 24% of the treated fat cells.*
