SculpSure​™ Laser Fat Reduction

What is SculpSure laser?

Diet and exercise are important, but sometimes alone they don’t do enough to get you the results you want. Sobel Skin, located in New York, is pleased to offer SculpSure, a non-surgical body contouring and fat reduction laser treatment designed to reduce stubborn fat and help you achieve a slim, natural look without surgery or downtime. SculpSure is FDA-cleared to help remove stubborn fat in the belly, love handles, back, thighs, and now under the chin.

Using heat, the SculpSure lasers raise the temperature of fat cells and destroy their structural integrity. In the months following the treatment, these damaged fat cells are processed and eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system. Destroyed fat cells do not regenerate, so fat loss is permanent.

Each 25-minute procedure can destroy up to 24% of treated fat cells without surgery. SculpSure uses controlled light-based technology to effectively kill fat cells in the target areas. The body then eliminates the dead cells over the course of the next 12 weeks. With nearly a quarter of the fat permanently removed from the treatment area, the result is a markedly slimmer contour.

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise. SculpSure targets adipose tissue (fat), elevating sub-dermal temperature between 42-47 degrees Celsius within 4 minutes. Continuous contact cooling keeps you and your skin comfortable throughout the treatment. The system can target multiple areas during a single, 25-minute procedure. Four flat, non-suction applicators and contouring frames can be customized into a variety of configurations. Over time, fat cells are eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system. SculpSure results can be seen in as little as 6 weeks, with optimal outcomes in 12 weeks.

What can I expect during and after SculpSure treatment?

Unlike certain fat removal treatments, such as Smartlipo, which may require anesthesia, SculpSure can be performed without anesthesia. When the treatment starts, initially you will feel a cooling sensation. This helps keep the skin comfortable during treatment. The cooling will be on the entire treatment, while the laser cycles on and off, raising the temperature of the fat cells. Most patients feel a deep warmth and/or tingling sensation intermittently throughout the
treatment which is generally well-tolerated. After the 25-minute treatment is finished, you can resume your daily activities, as there is no post-treatment downtime.

How many SculpSure treatment sessions will I need?

Every patient is different. Most people see the best results when they receive two treatments one month apart.
