SculpSure is a revolutionary fat reduction treatment that is non-surgical, non-invasive, does not require any downtime, and provides proven lasting results*.

SculpSure

SculpSure has received over 90% patients satisfaction rate and is continually rising because of its speed, comfortability, and efficiency*.

Cynosure’s SculpSure is the world’s first FDA approved non-surgical, non-invasive laser solution for fat reduction. SculpSure heats fat cells with infrared lasers to initiate lipolysis, or death of fat cells. It’s specially designed flat applicator lays on the skin of the treatment area, and while heat is emanating, cold temperature cools the skin to keep patients comfortable during their treatment.

How it Works

sculpsure-rendering-lr-2copyInfrared light from the SculpSure device is emitted from a hyperthermic laser that penetrates the the skin to effectively reach fat cells. The 1064nm wavelength is able to pass through the epidermis and dermis without harming the skin and heats the fat cells to a temperature of around 110 degrees Fahrenheit. This can be equated to how light passing through a car window does not damage the window, but heats the inside of the car.

After around a month post treatment, the treatment area becomes filled with a cell naturally found in the body called macrophage*. Macrophage can be seen as performing “cleanup duty,” engulfing dead cells and small particles in the body, and in turn naturally removing the destroyed fat cells*. Adults fat cells cannot regenerate, so this treatment provides lasting results*. From the treatment, collagen is also produced by fibroblasts and aids the skin to tighten and form to its new contour*.

Areas SculpSure Can Treat

Sculpsure has been approved by the FDA for treatment of the flanks and abdomen. However, it’s specially designed applicator is flexible enough for treatment of other areas of the body like the thighs, back, arms, and buttocks. A consultation examination with one of our body contouring experts is necessary to assess your candidacy.

Losing Weight versus Losing Fat

Our fat cell count becomes steady as we come to our teenage years. From then on, gaining weight does not increase the amount of fat cells, but rather their size. One reason people gain weight is from eating more food/fat than is needed by the body for energy. When an excess amount of food/fat is consumed, the body processes the fat that it requires for an energy source, and the remaining fat is stored in fat cells. So the more excess fat that is not processed for energy, the larger fat cells can become.

When you lose weight from eating a healthy diet or exercising, fat cells do not disappear, they shrink. So when you lose weight, the shrunken fat cells have the potential to enlarge again. With SculpSure, fat cells are removed from your body*. There is no chance for these cells to regenerate in the treatment area. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle though to make sure surrounding fat cells that were not treated do not enlarge.

Fat reduction treatments such as SculpSure by Cynosure are the only way to lose fat, rather than just lose weight*.

CoolSculpting versus SculpSure

CoolSculpting and SculpSure both use temperature to achieve fat reduction, but with different methods. CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis which causes the death of fat cells via cold temperature, while CoolSculpting uses thermolipolysis with hot temperature. Both treatments are emitted through applicators which are held in place with an applicator pattern, but CoolSculpting patterns are not as flexible which leaves the possibility of uneven results. CoolSculpting also sucks the treatment area into the applicator which can be painful, unlike SculpSure which does not require any suction, and the intervals of hot and cold temperature keeps patients comfortable*. Additionally, CoolSculpting sessions take 1 hour, while SculpSure treatments are completed in 25 minutes.

Both treatment results can be seen around the same time, but SculpSure results in 24% fat reduction and CoolSculpting results in 22% fat reduction*. Further, no side effects have been reported after SculpSure treatments, but CoolSculpting can cause bruising, swelling, and numbness*.

If you wish to receive more information on the benefits of SculpSure, please feel free to schedule a consultation with one of our body sculpting experts.

Consultation

You will have an initial consultation at Houston Weight Loss & Lipo Center where you will discuss your aesthetic concerns and desires. You will then undergo an examination in order for our SculpSure consultant to assess if SculpSure is the right treatment for you. If deemed a candidate, they will also be able to determine the proper applicator frame shape and the amount of applicators that you will require. No two treatments are alike; both you and your SculpSure consultant will come up with a customized treatment plan that will give you optimal results*. We are experts at SculpSure and will do everything in our power to give you the results you desire.

“We specialize in surgical and non-surgical body sculpting. It’s all we do.”

The Treatment

Your treatment session starts with our taking photos of the treatment area and then marking the exact areas the SculpSure expert will treat. They will choose an applicator pattern that will best fit the contour of the area(s) you are having treated. Applicators are secured in place in a patterned plastic frame which is held in place with elastic straps. The amount of applicators necessary for your treatment area will be determined during your initial consultation. They will then turn on the device which will begin to emit infrared wavelengths while it simultaneously cools your skin. Feeling the warm/cold intervals signifies that the wavelengths are directly targeting the designated fat cells. The flatness of the applicator makes for even results, and the curved edges of the applicator reaches surrounding tissue to naturally blend results*. Your treatment will be completed in less than half an hour, and you can return to your normal daily routine right away*.

SculpSure Results

The time it takes to see your results varies depending on your body and it’s natural removal process, but typically you can begin to see your results in about 4 – 6 weeks*. This is the average time it takes for the macrophage cells to begin removing the fat cells that were destroyed during your SculpSure treatment*. Your results can continue to improve for up to 11 – 12 weeks after your treatment*. And the results you see are the results you can enjoy for a long time as long as you eat well, exercise regularly, and maintain a stable weight*.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for SculpSure?

There are two categories of people who qualify for SculpSure treatments:

Category 1: Patients who can “pinch an inch.” These men and women have small localized pockets of fat that, no matter how much time they spend in the gym, does not diminish.

Category 2: Patients who can pinch more than an inch. These men and women could be candidates for liposuction, but do not wish to undergo an invasive surgical procedure. Category 2 patients generally require more than one treatment to reach their aesthetic goal*.

How long does a SculpSure treatment take?

A SculpSure treatment takes 25 minutes or less*. Treating multiple areas may increase treatment length.

Does it hurt?

Most patients experience minimal to no pain*. The integrated cooling while heating keeps patients at a comfortable temperature. People have reported that they feel slight tingling, but this is not painful*.

When will I see my results?

Results are visible in about a month (around the time the macrophage cells remove the destroyed fat cells)*. Results will continue to improve for up to 3 months*.

Will my results last?

Yes*! On the condition that patients continue to exercise regularly and eat a proper diet. But because the cells that are destroyed cannot regenerate, so long as you keep the surrounding areas slim your results should be long-lasting*.
