SculpSure laser body contouring, also known as laser lipolysis, is an advanced approach to non-invasive fat removal that employs light-based technology to disrupt and eliminate pockets of fat in the abdomen, waist, thighs, flanks, upper arms and submental (under chin) areas within 25 minutes. Results may be seen as early as six weeks with final results typically achieved at twelve weeks. Two to three sessions are usually necessary to achieve a desired outcome; by the conclusion of each treatment series, up to 24% of targeted fat is effectively removed in a comfortable experience that doesn’t involve freezing or suction, cause irritation or require downtime. Results may vary contingent on age, gender, lifestyle and metabolic rate of each patient. Individual treatment protocols apply; projected outcomes are assessed in the consult.
SculpSure is cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration to reduce stubborn fat and effectively remodel the belly, flanks, back, thighs and under the chin. Each course of two to three 25-minute procedures can remove up to 24% of targeted fat cells without surgery or downtime.
Clients may begin seeing results as soon as 6 weeks following treatment with optimal results observed at 12 weeks. Treated fat cells are eliminated and will not regenerate. Some clients see satisfactory results after one treatment, but best results may require multiple treatments, which should be spaced 6 to 12 weeks apart. Optimal results are dependent on healthy diet, exercise and hydration.

• Outer thighs
• Upper arms
• Upper/lower back
• Abdomen (love handles, stomach)
• Double chin & neck (submental area)
The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remains consistent throughout adult life. As we lose weight, the size of fat cells may become smaller, but the fat cells themselves do not decrease in number. Even with healthy diet and adequate exercise, many people experience difficulty remodeling particular areas of the body. Following SculpSure treatment, stubborn fat cells are permanently destroyed, metabolized and naturally eliminated via lymphatic drainage.
SculpSure melts fat cells and tightens the skin. This tightening may cause feelings of numbness or sensitivity as the skin becomes more firm and toned; most clients feel an intermittent tingling throughout treatment which is typically well-tolerated. The laser applicator alternates between warm and cool sensations throughout this procedure.
The standard time allotted for a SculpSure appointment is subject to the number of areas being treated in an office visit. The latest SculpSure technology can treat one area in approximately 25 minutes; many patients have more than one area treated during the same SculpSure session.
SculpSure utilizes diode lasers which have been regularly implemented in medical settings since the mid-1990s. Only low level heat (42°C to 47°C) is applied to the skin during this procedure; diode lasers penetrate the subcutaneous layer and melt adipose fat from within so that the surface is not impacted and there is no risk of skin damage. The manufacturers of SculpSure submitted to numerous clinical trials to determine that this procedure meets rigorous scientific criteria and is safe. No long-term negative side effects have been reported.
Temporary side effects such as mild discomfort or slight swelling may occur and will subside shortly after treatment. This procedure has no associated downtime and clients are welcome to resume daily activities directly following SculpSure.
The price of SculpSure treatment is contingent on your areas of concern and the number of sessions required to achieve successful results. Consult with the experts at NYDG Integral Health & Wellness to design a customized treatment plan suited to your body, budget and aesthetic intentions.
