SculpSure is a laser treatment that is used to target and eliminate fat. The SculpSure device is wrapped around the patient like a belt. Its applicators deliver a 1060-nanometer diode laser that reaches a temperature hot enough to kill fat cells underneath the skin while leaving other tissues unharmed.The SculpSure device alternates between delivering a cooling effect and the heat laser. A couple of weeks after the procedure, the body’s lymphatic system will naturally flush out the eliminated fat cells.

Ideal candidates want to reduce or eliminate fat in the upper and lower abdominal area. It is not a suitable treatment for patients looking for a weight loss treatment. People who are best suited for SculpSure have a body mass index of 30 or less.

The typical cost ranges from $1000-$2500. The final cost depends on the area to be treated, surgical facility fees, the surgeon’s level of expertise and the geographic location of the procedure.

The procedure produces smooth and firm skin. There could be slight redness, swelling, soreness and bruising. As the body metabolizes the eliminated fat cells, fat reduction may be noticeable in as few as six weeks after one treatment. Full results are normally seen after 12 weeks. The results gotten are permanent as the destroyed cells won't regenerate.
