What Is Laser Fat Reduction (Sculpsure)?

Sculpsure, or laser fat reduction therapy, employs heat energy to kill fat cells.

During Sculpsure treatment, laser technology generates heat to melt fat cells away. The heated laser is delivered through an applicator belt that uses specific wavelengths to heat up and eliminate fat cells. Heating the fat cells kills them, and the dead fat cells are then carried out of the body via the natural flushing action of the lymphatic system following treatment.

Sculpsure is FDA-approved to treat the stomach, "love handles," back, thighs, and the "double chin." Most treatments take about 25 minutes and it should take roughly three months to see full results.

What Does It Involve?

Sculpsure employs laser technology to generate heat energy that is targeted at stubborn fat cells beneath the skin.

The laser energy heats the fat cells ('lipolysis') to damage their structural integrity. These damaged cells are then processed and eliminated by the body's lymphatic system.

During the treatment, special applicators lie flat on the skin and heat the fat layer whilst also cooling the skin's surface for comfort. The treatment takes a total of 25 minutes, so it's easy to fit into a lunch break and there is no downtime, so you can return home or back to work straight away.

Sculpsure is a highly effective non-surgical fat reduction treatment that will help shift stubborn fat.
