What is SculpSure™?
SculpSure™ is a non-invasive, FDA-approved body sculpting technique that uses light-based energy to destroy fat cells without harming the surrounding tissue. Requiring little to no downtime following treatment, the innovative SculpSure™ system helps patients get rid of superficial fat deposits that are resistant to dieting and increased exercise.
At Aloha Laser Vision, the slimming results our patients have achieved through SculpSure™ fat reduction treatments are remarkable. If you have stubborn areas of excess fat anywhere along the midsection, hips, or even beneath your chin, treatment with the innovative SculpSure™ system may be able to help you attain the smoother, leaner look you desire.

What Areas Can SculpSure™ Treat?
On average, patients experience an approximate 24% reduction in fat in the treated areas. The most common areas treated with SculpSure™ can include:

SculpSure™ vs. CoolSculpting® for Non-Surgical Fat Reduction
While the SculpSure™ fat reduction system uses warming and cooling cycles to disrupt fat cells, CoolSculpting® combines suction and cold temperatures to freeze fat cells. Both methods are designed to destroy fat cells, which are then broken down naturally and eliminated by the body; however, the suction of skin and fat into the CoolSculpting® applicators paired with the fat freezing process is often described as uncomfortable and can result in noticeable post-treatment bruising and sensitivity. At Aloha Laser Vision, we prefer the SculpSure™ system’s light-based technology for gentle, effective non-surgical fat loss that generally only takes 25 minutes per session. According to the FDA, SculpSure™ can also remove slightly more fat in each treatment area per session (24% with SculpSure™ vs. 22% with CoolSculpting®). Additionally, if you want to target multiple small areas during one session, only SculpSure™ is capable of treating four areas at once.
How Does SculpSure™ Work?
SculpSure™ uses flat paddles to apply light energy directly to the skin’s surface. The energy travels through the skin and heats fat cells to a specific temperature that damages and destroys them. The affected fat cells are then broken down and metabolized, which slims the treated area. The skin and surrounding tissues are undamaged in this process and there is no healing or recovery period to worry about. While initial results of SculpSure™ treatment become visible within approximately six weeks, final results can typically be expected by about 12 weeks after your session.
What Can I Expect During SculpSure™ Treatment?
The overwhelming majority of patients describe their SculpSure™ treatment as both quick and relatively free of any discomfort. The sensations of the alternate heating and cooling cycles experienced during treatment are easily tolerated and do not require anesthetic of any kind. To begin the session, the four SculpSure™ paddles are configured over the treatment area(s) and snapped into place. Once the paddles are against the skin, treatment cycles begin, during which the applications become warm and then cold, keeping the skin at the right temperature for both effective treatment and comfort. After 25 minutes, the session is complete and you are free to resume your normal activities.
SculpSure™ for Chin Contouring
Non-invasive chin contouring can now be achieved with the SculpSure™ fat reduction system. Cynosure® has developed a specialized apparatus designed specifically for targeted treatment of excess fat beneath the chin. Double chin reduction with SculpSure™ uses the same patented fat-destroying technology employed on other areas of the body, combined with a customizable harness that holds the applicator against the skin under the chin. Treatment sessions typically last only 25 minutes and are generally well-tolerated by our patients. Most individuals report alternating deep heating and cooling sensations throughout the sessions that rarely, if ever, lead to feelings of discomfort. Once the session is complete, patients are often free to return to their normal activities, as there is usually no recovery period or downtime associated with this procedure.
Results are not immediately apparent, as fat is eliminated from the area over a period of about three to four months. Some patients may require multiple treatment sessions to achieve the desired outcome. Once the final results emerge, patients are typically thrilled with the leaner, smoother contours they have achieved. If you are interested in treating stubborn fat deposits beneath your chin with non-surgical SculpSure™, please contact Aloha Laser Vision to schedule a consultation.
Are There Any SculpSure™ Side Effects?
Immediately following a SculpSure™ session, you may experience temporary redness, tenderness, and inflammation in the treatment areas as the body sets to work on breaking down the damaged fat cells. These effects should be mild and dissipate quickly. You will be fully informed about the potential for rare side effects prior to your first treatment session. Overall, our patients report that the post-treatment period for SculpSure™ is very manageable and does not interfere with normal activities.
What Results Can I Expect After SculpSure™?
After your SculpSure™ session, the body quickly begins the process of removing the damaged fat cells. Over time, as the excess fat is broken down and eliminated from the body, the treated area should take on a leaner appearance. Three to four months after treatment, the final results of your SculpSure™ session should be apparent. To achieve optimal fat loss in all of your problem areas, multiple treatment sessions can be scheduled.
How Much Does SculpSure™ Cost?
Attaining the body contouring results you desire with SculpSure™ requires a custom-tailored treatment plan targeting your area(s) of excess fat.
