sculpsure laser fat reduction la jolla
Staying power is a good thing most of the time, but not when it comes to stubborn belly bulges! If you have diet- and exercise-resistant fat that sticks with you through thick and thin (perhaps quite literally) despite your best efforts, SculpSure® can help.

This FDA cleared laser fat reduction treatment can melt away unwanted fat cells to help reduce the size of a belly bulge by up to 24%* in just one treatment.

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure uses a specialized laser that safely heats fatty tissue, breaking down a portion of the fat cells, which your body naturally eliminates following a treatment. It’s a fantastic option for the busy man or woman who wants to reduce unwanted fat without downtime.

  • Each treatment takes only 25 minutes, even for multiple areas

Will SculpSure work for me?

SculpSure is best for patients who would like to reduce small to moderate fat pockets on their abdomen, hips, or flanks. SculpSure does a great job of reducing fat, but it won’t tighten skin. If loose skin is a concern, you may consider combining SculpSure and ThermiTight to ensure a smooth, great-looking result.

What does SculpSure feel like?

Most patients say they feel a moderate to intense warming sensation and some pressure as the heat from the laser penetrates the skin. The controlled heat from the SculpSure will break down unwanted fat cells, but it won’t harm your skin, muscles or nerve tissue.

Where can I have SculpSure done?

SculpSure is FDA cleared for reducing fat bulges on the abdomen and flanks. Depending on the patient, it can also be used to reduce fat on the inner or outer thighs, back, or other areas.

How many treatments will I need?

Many patients are satisfied with the fat reduction achieved after one SculpSure treatment. Follow-up treatments can be scheduled to further your fat loss!

When will I see results?

The affected fat cells leave the body gradually. You should see and feel a difference within 6 weeks of treatment, with final results in about 12 weeks.

Is SculpSure permanent?

SculpSure selectively destroys fat cells, which will not return. However, it is not a weight-loss procedure and will not make you immune to weight gain.  The remaining fat cells in the area, as well as other areas, can grow (and shrink) with weight fluctuations. To ensure your results last for years, it is important to continue eating a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
