How does SculpSure work?
SculpSure is a type of hyperthermic laser lipolysis, meaning the treatment uses SculpSure laser energy for fat reduction. The treated fat cells slowly melt away during the entire treatment plan.
During the SculpSure treatment, the device is wrapped around the treatment area, like a belt. Through its applicators, a 1060-nanometer diode laser is delivered that can reach a temperature between 107.6 and 116.6°F. The heat destroys fat cells underneath the treated area, while the other surrounding tissues are unharmed by the SculpSure procedure. No harm befalls the skin as there is minimal absorption of the heat in the dermis.
The nonsurgical fat reduction SculpSure treatment alternates between hot and cooling effects to prevent administering too much heat. During the multiple sittings, your body’s lymphatic system naturally flushes out the destroyed fat cells. With every session, you will see a permanent reduction in fat cells.
Even clinical data have medically proven to be promising. The subcutaneous adipose tissue response to the non-invasive hyperthermic treatment was a fat reduction of about 18%. The average reduction of stubborn fat due to the revolutionary SculpSure technology is about 24%. Also, the disrupted fat cells do not regenerate. However, the non-invasive fat reduction treatment is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise.
The process can be complicated for a layman. If you are interested in SculpSure treatments, please don’t hesitate to call Skin Body Soul Spa, an expert in the non-invasive laser technique.
Benefits of SculpSure
Here are the benefits of the SculpSure device as per the clinical and histological evaluations:
- Melts away the troublesome fat
- It can help patients maintain a natural-looking appearance
- Minimal to no pain
- SculpSure device can treat multiple areas, including inner and outer thighs
- Helps in fat reduction by administering heat to the affected skin’s surface
- Promotes tissue firmness and helps maintain definition
As beneficial as the results are, we encourage our clients to manage their expectations when it comes to the SculpSure device. While it does reduce fat, laser medicine is not a tool to lose weight. SculpSure tends to be most effective for people whose body mass index is under 30, already maintains a healthy lifestyle, but the patient’s body still has fat that will not go away no matter what they do.
Patient contouring can also help to target double chins, untoned neck, and jawline. For the submental use, the patient’s body composition or BMI does not need to be under 30. For optimal results, a special applicator is used to administer gentle heat to the sensitive face and surrounding tissue.
Preparing for SculpSure treatment
While the SculpSure is a non-invasive treatment, there is some extent of preparation required before a sitting. Always be open with the professional about your requirements and the areas you want to target, and they will accordingly advise you with the number of sessions required. Please be open to disclosing your medical history as it can alter the treatment process.
We recommend booking a consultation with Skin Body Soul Spa to discuss the appropriate course of action. Accordingly, you may be advised to avoid sun exposure a week before the treatment and steer clear of painkillers to avoid bruising.
During the SculpSure treatment
Depending on the area being treated, SculpSure will either be administered sitting or lying down. Most patients first feel a cooling sensation, followed by a tingling sensation, throughout the procedure as your technician alternates between the cool and heat setting to regulate the temperature.
As the body begins to undergo the process of body contouring, you can expect results within six weeks of the treatment, especially when followed by regular exercise and a healthy diet. With every sitting, the body naturally eliminates the reduced-fat cells.
Fortunately, there is no downtime required after SculpSure. Since only 25 minutes are required per session, it is easy to squeeze into your schedule, no matter how busy. The Skin Body Soul Spa team knows the value of clients’ time and is always a step ahead when it comes to scheduling and managing different appointments throughout the day.
After a SculpSure session, it is normal to experience mild discomfort on the body parts where the device was used. The sensation is similar to the one you have after doing an intense workout. To get the best results, we recommend:
- Taking a few minutes of rest after the treatment.
- Massage the treated area, although this is not mandatory and does not much affect the healing process.
- Light exercise the same day you get the treatment for faster breakdown of fatty tissues.
- Drinking water regularly, especially while undergoing SculpSure treatment.
In the coming weeks, you are not required to do any special activity. For optimal results, multiple sittings are required, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is key to seeing effective results, along with SculpSure.
Like any procedure, SculpSure is not without its probable side effects. Some patients tend to experience swelling, redness, tingling on the treated area for a few hours after the treatment, but the issue will go away quickly. Regularly massaging the area also helps.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does SculpSure cause swelling?
Yes, it is perfectly normal to have some swelling after SculpSure. The amount of swelling depends on every client and how their body reacts to the procedure. However, some parts of the body that are more sensitive tends to swell up more.
No swelling is permanent and tends to settle down quickly, especially after massaging the area.
Does SculpSure cause pain?
No. Typically, clients do not experience pain, but they can experience mild discomfort. However, even that feeling tends to dissipate quickly, and you can carry on with your routine activities almost immediately.
What is the average cost of the SculpSure treatment?Estimating the costing of each sitting is difficult, considering the costs are dependent on many variables such as the areas being treated, the number of applicators required, and the number of sittings it takes to see the results. Every client’s needs are different. However, as estimated by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the average cost of similar procedures, including SculpSure, can be between $1000-$4000.
