About SculpSure

All the exercises in the world will not shrink loose abdominal skin. In many cases, such skin has lost its elasticity, has stretch marks and physically cannot snap back. Okay, the “Debbie Downer” moment is over. We are here to tell you that there is a solution and it’s called SculpSure!

This new light-based body contouring treatment uses laser-based technology to selectively target and destroy fat cells without affecting the skin’s surface, requiring no surgery or downtime.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is the first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive melting of fat (lipolysis).  SculpSure uses a sapphire laser diode to create a wavelength (1064nm) that penetrates through the skin without causing damage to the skin. This infrared light is the same light that heats the earth’s air.  This specific wavelength passes through the skin layers (epidermis and dermis) and heats the fat in the same way infrared light passes into your car to heat inside it without damaging the glass of your windshield or windows.  Once the fat hits about 112F (45C), it breaks down. The fat cells that are damaged during the treatment are cleared away by your lymphatic system, the same way your body heals itself from a cut or bruise, and are eliminated as waste over time.  Macrophages, a type of cell that responds to injury, reach the site about four weeks after the procedure and digest the dead fat cells. Between 12-24 weeks after SculpSure, fibroblasts arrive and lay down new collagen, which explains the skin tightening effect. So, unlike older generation treatments that shrunk fat cells, these fat cells are dead and gone permanently.

Is it safe?

This technology has been around since 1960 when the first visible light laser was created. Laser diodes are used in optical fibre Christmas trees, compact disc (CD) players, laser printers, remote-control devices, intrusion detection systems, etc.  The same laser technology is used to provide aesthetic services such as laser hair removal, skin resurfacing, photo facials, tattoo removal, and now SculpSure. So, whether you’ve had a baby, lost weight, or want to complement your fitness routine –  we all have a reason to look and feel better about our bodies.
