  • belly
  • flanks
  • back
  • thighs
  • beneath the chin

The SculpSure device cools the skin’s surface, while its laser energy heats the underlying fat cells effectively destroying them. Then, over the next few days, the body flushes the destroyed fat cells through the lymphatic system.

Here are 3 facts you may not have known about this contouring treatment:

1. SculpSure is a Non-Invasive Treatment

One of the greatest appeals of SculpSure is that it’s a fat reduction system that involves zero downtime or recovery. During a SculpSure treatment, there are no incisions, sutures, or anesthesia involved, which means there’s no need to rest and recuperate. Patients can return right back to their busy lives. The advanced laser technology travels through your skin and targets stubborn fat cells beneath without damaging the skin’s surface.

2. SculpSure Treatments Are Painless

It might seem like damaging stubborn fat with a machine would be painful; however, due to the advanced technology of the SculpSure device, patients can tolerate the treatments extremely well and feel little to no discomfort. While you may feel some heat damaging the fat cells, no pain is associated with the treatment. Since there is no discomfort, there’s no need for anesthesia, so you can return to your daily routine immediately after.

3. SculpSure Can Even Treat a Double Chin

SculpSure isn’t just limited to sculpting areas of the body. It is now FDA-approved to treat the submental area underneath your chin. The area underneath the chin is one of the most challenging places to target for fat loss. The fat that gathers there is not always due to poor diet and lack of exercise; genetics and age can also factor into why you’re stuck with a double chin. With the SculpSure device, Dr. Gray can easily target this hard-to-reach area.
