SculpSure by Cynosure, is the latest introduction into the ever growing industry of non-surgical fat reduction.
With nearly 90% of Americans reporting frustration with excess body fat, non-surgical alternatives to liposuction are becoming increasingly popular.
Minimally invasive fat reduction, which targets fat through advanced cooling, heating, or ultrasonic technology, are revolutionizing the aesthetics industry. These treatments are being used more and more to reduce stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet or exercise, and have seen a 50% increase in the amount of procedures performed between 2014-2015.
SculpSure is the latest fat reduction treatment to compete in this market. Learn more about SculpSure, and find out how SculpSure differs from other popular, non-invasive fat reduction treatments such as CoolSculpting or Liposonix.

What is SculpSure?
Approved by the FDA and introduced to the market in late 2015, SculpSure joins the ranks of other minimally invasive body contouring treatments such as CoolSculpting, LipoSonix, Venus Freeze and Smart Lipo. The makers of SculpSure advertise their device as safe and effective.
The following information is based off of reports and publications from the makers of Sculpsure. SKINNEY Medspa does not endorse or guarantee any of the statements made by sculpsure.
How does SculpSure work?
Like Liposonix, Sculp Sure uses light based energy to reduce fat deposits. It does this by using a laser with a specific wavelength of light that safely passes through the skin and tissues, to target underlying fat deposits. When the laser penetrates the fat, it heats up some of those fat cells up to the point of destruction. This is called controlled hyperthermic injury.
According to Lawrence Bass, M.D., NYC plastic surgeon and lead investigator in one of two FDA studies for SculpSure explains that SculpSure uses a1060-nm diode laser light to heat fat cells to the target temperatures of 42 to 47 degrees Celsius. Dr. Bass explains “[it’s] not a coagulation temperature. [It is] a temperature that shocks the fat cells, and they die over a few weeks. It’s an apoptosis mechanism,” Dr. Bass says. “At the same time that the fat is being heated, the skin is being chilled by the applicator head. So, this is something that can treat all skin types because there’s no reaction in the skin. Whether you’re fair or very dark skinned, the skin remains unaffected.”
Does SculpSure hurt?
Patients report mild tingling, slight discomfort, and sensations of cold and heat throughout the procedure. After the procedure, some patients experience numbing, redness, and slight tenderness. But these effects are usually mild and temporary.*
Does SculpSure require downtime?
SculpSure is minimally invasive, like other body contouring treatments, such as CoolSculpting or Liposonix. This means that most patients can return to their normal daily activities following the treatment.*
How long is the typical SculpSure procedure?
Usually, a Sculp Sure treatment take less than half an hour. This is quicker than other non-invasive fat reduction treatments which typically take under an hour per treatment.*
What areas can Sculp Sure Treat?
Sculp Sure is intended to treat fat deposits that occur around the stomach and flank areas, commonly referred to as “love handles.”
Sculp Sure have manipulable applicators, which can be tailored to the patient for more customization. Still, Sculp Sure is limited to narrowly defined treatment areas.
CoolSculpting, on the other hand, is highly versatile, being fully equipped with a wide range of applicator heads. CoolSculpting can virtually treat stubborn fat deposits from head to toe, reducing inner thigh fat and outer thigh fat, belly fat, love handles, back fat, and many other areas of fat around the flank or torso. It can also be used to define musculature, which is a popular application among male patients who want to define their six pack or pecs.*¹
CoolSculpting can also reduce fat from smaller treatment areas using the CoolMini applicator. Popular areas to treat using the CoolMini include fat that accumulates around the knees, bra fat, and can even be used to reduce a double chin.*
How much does SculpSure cost?
SculpSure cost depends on where you live and the treatment areas being targeted, but typically SculpSure costs around $1,200 to $1,500 for each treated area.
