Everything You’ve Ever Wanted to Know About SculpSure

With the hustle and bustle of daily life, it can be hard to hit all your fitness goals. This might especially ring true if you’re a woman since biologically, the female form holds on to more body fat (so unfair, we know). Even the most athletic and nutritionally conscious may have trouble areas that resist diet and exercise. Does this mean that surgery is your only option? Not quite. There are non-invasive treatments available that aid fat shedding, one of which is WarmSculpting with SculpSure.

This new addition to the body contouring family was FDA-approved in 2017 and developed by Cynosure, Inc, which is a division of Hologic, a trailblazing cosmetic pharmaceutical company that’s leading the way in beauty aesthetics. According to the Dermatology Times, SculpSure can be applied to a person’s submental area (the area underneath your chin), abdomen, flanks, back, and inner or outer thighs. Celebrities love it for red carpet appearances. More recently, Brooke Shields joins the list of SculpSure’s high-end clientele with a series of endorsements on the SculpSure Instagram page.

What Is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a convenient body contouring treatment that can be done in a medical office in less than an hour without disrupting the skin’s surface. So, you can quite literally get it done during your lunch break and your coworkers would never be the wiser.

The laser that’s used in a SculpSure treatment causes a process that’s called apoptosis, which gently heats up fat cells and shrinks them1 so they can be expelled through the body’s lymphatic system as waste. In the weeks after your treatment, you’ll see a permanent reduction in those persistent, unwanted pockets of body fat.

Goldberg says the treatment is meant for patients who want to get some fat reduction and can be used on various body areas. "It is meant for people who are in pretty good shape who want some help ‘melting’ a little extra fat."

For the skeptics out there, SculpSure is classified as a permanent fat-reduction treatment. According to Walden, “Clinical studies show it will help to destroy up to 25 percent of fat cells in the treated area. After the treatment, fat cells will not regenerate.”

However, before you start celebrating never having to watch what you eat again, Walden stresses that SculpSure is not a magical laser. “If someone gains weight after SculpSure, remaining fat cells will increase in size and it can diminish the results that were achieved. SculpSure doesn't affect the caloric intake or the body's ability to gain weight,” she says.

In other words, permanent fat reduction after SculpSure has to be maintained with a balanced lifestyle, which includes eating nutritious and portion-sized foods, working out, getting enough sleep, and so forth.
