SculpSure® is the world’s first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis of the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs and submental area.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a laser-based, noninvasive treatment that’s used to target and reduce or eliminate fat. It works for both men and women and on a variety of body types. One procedure takes an average of 25 minutes and can target multiple areas at once.
Noninvasive, nonsurgical cosmetic body procedures are becoming increasingly popular, especially to help with fat reduction. Nonsurgical procedures require no incisions or anesthesia. This can mean there’s minimal discomfort, a quick procedure time, and little to no recovery time.
What does SculpSure do?
SculpSure involves a hands-free heat laser belt that uses specific wavelengths and heat to eliminate fat cells. In 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared SculpSure for its use in noninvasive lipolysis in the following areas:
- upper abdominal area
- lower abdominal area
People who are best suited for SculpSure have a body mass index of 30 or less. SculpSure is not intended as a weight loss option. SculpSure is usually not the best treatment option for people with obesity.
When discussing the procedure with your licensed practitioner, you should communicate which areas of your body you’re interested in treating. The practitioner will tell you how many sessions you might need to reach your goals. Based on licensing rules in your state, the licensed practitioner may be a:
- physician’s assistant
- nurse practitioner
The first SculpSure consultation often takes place right before the treatment, but sometimes you will have to schedule a separate appointment.
Be prepared to discuss your medical history and what medications you’re currently on. To minimize the chance of bruising, you might be told to avoid blood thinners and painkillers such as Ibuprofen or aspirin a few days before you plan to have a SculpSure treatment done.
