Stubborn body fat can be one of the most frustrating and discouraging roadblocks on your path to building your dream body. Where your body accumulates, fat is dictated by your genes and family history, meaning you may work out regularly and eat healthily but still struggle to remove pockets of fat in stubborn areas through no fault of your own. If you are feeling frustrated by excess body fat that will not budge, then you may be a good candidate for non-invasive SculpSure treatments.
At Cole Aesthetic Center, Dr. Eric A. Cole and his expert staff are proud to offer this nonsurgical and FDA-cleared technology for patients interested in body contouring. SculpSure is an effective non-invasive body contouring option for men and women who struggle with eliminating stubborn pockets of fat. SculpSure delivers heat using sophisticated and safe laser technology to melt and destroy fat cells, creating slimmer and more aesthetically-pleasing contours throughout the body.
SculpSure Can Help:
- Permanently melt stubborn pockets of fat with no downtime
- Reduce volume in trouble areas such as the love handles, inner & outer thighs, abdomen and upper arms
How Does SculpSure Work?
SculpSure uses hands-free laser technology to melt away fat in targeted areas. The lasers of the SculpSure device heat fat cells between 107 and 116 degrees, destroying them and eliminating clusters of stubborn fat. The body then harmlessly clears away the treated fat cells through the lymphatic system, leaving slimmer contours in their place. One SculpSure session can remove up to 24 percent of fat in a targeted area.
The lasers used in the SculpSure procedure are designed specifically to warm fat cells (Warmsculpting), leaving surrounding tissue unaffected. The lasers will cycle on and off throughout the treatment to maintain a constant and safe temperature. The device is also equipped with cooling paddles that make direct contact with the skin to reduce side effects on the skin’s surface and increase patient comfort during the procedure. No anesthesia is needed during SculpSure treatments.
Who Is a Good Candidate for SculpSure?
SculpSure is intended for patients who have already attempted to eliminate excess body fat through regular exercise and a healthy diet but still fallen short of their goals. Patients should be within 25 pounds of their ideal body weight and have a BMI of less than 30. SculpSure is intended to be a fat loss procedure, not a weight loss procedure, and will have a minimal effect on overall body weight. The device can be used to target fat in common areas of concern, including the:
- Love handles
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper arms
SculpSure targets many of the same areas as liposuction but provides results in a nonsurgical method. Patients who are interested in body contouring procedures but wish to avoid liposuction make great candidates for SculpSure.
What Is a SculpSure Appointment Like?
Each SculpSure session lasts approximately 25 minutes. At the start of the appointment, patients will discuss their aesthetic concerns and desired results with Dr. Cole to determine the optimal treatment areas. The belt-like SculpSure device is then wrapped around the targeted area. Patients sit in a comfortable, reclined position and are free to relax as the treatment begins.

If stubborn pockets of fat have left you feeling discouraged as you put in the effort to reach your aesthetic goals, then schedule an appointment at Cole Aesthetic Center to learn more about SculpSure. During an initial consultation, Dr. Cole will walk you through the treatment and determine if you are a good candidate for this non-invasive body contouring option. With just one to three 25-minute appointments, you may be able to finally earn the body that you have work so hard to achieve, no surgery necessary.
What Is the Recovery for SculpSure?
SculpSure is a safe, non-invasive procedure that requires absolutely no downtime. Patients can return to work and strenuous activities like exercise immediately following a SculpSure treatment. Side effects are minimal and may include skin redness, minor bruising, swelling, and soreness. If a patient does experience any side effects, they will quickly diminish over the course of one week.
Results will take some time to develop as the body works to clear away the treated fat cells. Changes will generally not be visible until six weeks after treatment and will continue to improve for up to 12. Some patients receive satisfactory results with just a single SculpSure appointment, although most patients will need up to three sessions to experience optimal results. Each session can be scheduled six to 12 weeks apart.
In addition to melting fat cells, Warmsculpting, the warming effect of SculpSure, has even been shown to induce increased collagen production. Some patients may notice a smoother skin texture and tighter skin in the treated areas. SculpSure is not intended to tighten skin, however, and patients with loose skin may benefit more from a different procedure.
Once the final results have developed, patients can enjoy their new contours well into the future. Any lingering trouble spots can continue to be treated with SculpSure until the desired results have been met throughout the body. Once the fat cells have been destroyed by SculpSure, they are gone for good and will not return. However, patients should be prepared to maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to ensure their results are long-lasting. SculpSure eliminates fat cells in the treated areas, but it does not make patients immune from gaining additional fat through a lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet.
