SculpSure Q & A

SculpSure Marina Del Rey

What is SculpSure™?

SculpSure™ is a light-based body contouring system for the reduction of stubborn fat that diet and exercise can’t budge.  SculpSure™ helps you achieve a slimmer appearance in just 25 minutes without surgery or downtime following the treatment.  

SculpSure’s™ innovative technology permanently destroys treated fat cells in problem areas such as the abdomen and love handles. The procedure is completely customizable based on each individual patient’s desired results without any bruising that is experienced with other suction-based technologies.  Results can be seen in as quickly as six weeks, with optimal results usually seen in 12 weeks.

How does it work?

SculpSure™ destroys fat cells by raising the temperature of those cells. There is no damage to the surrounding skin or tissue and the fat is absorbed and then released from the body. The treatment is clinically tested and FDA approved. Studies show an average reduction of stubborn fat of 24% and over 90% of the patients who have tried it are satisfied with the results. The treatment is comfortable with no troublesome side effects.

What’s a SculpSure™ Treatment Like?


The device has four heads, which are placed directly onto the patient’s skin in a special frame that holds the head in position. The doctor is able to treat multiple areas at the same time with the different heads on the device, which helps to reduce treatment time. Each head passes light through the patient’s skin to the tissues below, heating the fat cells. The applicator head also cools the patient’s skin to prevent skin damage during treatment. SculptSure treatments are not painful, although patients sometimes report a tingling sensation. No downtime is required after the procedure, and people can immediately resume normal activities. A treatment lasts about 30 minutes. Most patients start to see results at six weeks, with the full effects becoming noticeable at 12 weeks.
