SculpSure: How it Works

In 25 minutes, this completely non-invasive, laser-based body contouring procedure is designed to destroy stubborn fat cells. Using controlled hyperthermic technology, the fat cells undergo temperature injury from the targeted laser energy, which passes 1060-nm diode laser light through the skin and elevates adipose tissue (fat) to a temperature between 108 and 117 degrees Fahrenheit, the optimal temperature for fat cell destruction.
While the laser is delivering heat to the fat cells, the skin is kept cool and protected by the sapphire surface of the laser delivery system. SculpSure safely treats all skin types from very fair to very dark, without risk of hypo or hyperpigmentation. Once the fat cells die, the immune system clears the body of the dead cells, thereby shrinking the treatment area.
SculpSure’s unique applicators can be arranged to create custom placement, to best treat the patient’s requested areas of concern. While lying down, the applicators are on top of the skin, as energy penetrates into the fat tissue. Clinical studies examining before and after ultrasound measurements found up to a 24% average reduction of adipose tissue after a single treatment. Some patients report a tingling or burning sensation during the procedure, so we monitor and communicate closely with the patient throughout the treatment to adjust and ensure patient comfort. Right afterward, our patients can return to their normal daily activities.
If you have struggled to reduce that last bit of fat and just can’t seem to, consider non-invasive SculpSure treatment. A 25-minute treatment can provide you a slimmer silhouette. We are proud to offer this at R&R Medicine.
Treat Your Double Chin
Submental fat, often referred to as a double chin, is very difficult to treat successfully.
SculpSure Submental, the new SculpSure attachment for treating double chins, brings hope to those patients who have tried many different approaches and failed. This brand new attachment uses the same proven noninvasive laser technology as the existing, well-proven SculpSure body contouring system and uses the same specific wavelengths and heat to eliminate fat cells with this ergonomically-designed attachment.
Using a proprietary and easily-fixed support system, the handpiece is attached snugly and comfortably under the chin. The parameters are set, and the laser energy gently targets the fat cells to rid the submental area of stubborn and unsightly fat.
