Non-Surgical Body Contouring
Non-surgical Body Contouring is the fastest growing cosmetic procedure around the world.
There are a variety of procedures. These procedures reduce or remove stubborn pockets of fat to contour and shape different areas of the body. Most non-surgical fat reduction treatments are based on one of these four principles:
- Laser lipo or Laser lipolysis uses controlled heating and laser energy to target fat cells.
- Cryolipolysis, uses freezing temperatures to target and destroy fat cells.
- Radiofrequency lipolysis uses controlled heating and ultrasound technology to target fat cells.
- Injection lipolysis uses injectable deoxycholic acid to target fat cells.
Non-surgical body contouring procedures aren’t intended to be weight loss solutions. Ideal candidates are close to their desired weight and want to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
SculpSure® is the world’s first FDA and Health-Canada approved laser treatment for non-surgical lipo or lipolysis of the abdomen, flanks, back, inner thighs, outer thighs and submental area. It’s ideal for patients looking to get rid of stubborn fat.

Who is a good candidate for SculpSure® or body sculpting?
SculpSure ® candidates have stubborn fat in areas that seem resistant to diet and exercise. SculpSure ® body sculpting is intended for non-surgical fat reduction of the abdomen, flanks, back, inner and outer thighs and the submental (under the chin) area. SculpSure ® is not a weight loss solution and is ideal for candidates with a BMI of up to 30 for body treatments and up to 43 for under the chin treatments.
How many treatments will I need?
Every client is different. Most clients see the best results when they have a series of treatments. Ask your treatment provider about the treatment plan that is right for you.
How soon will I see results after a SculpSure® or body sculpting treatment?
Many clients start to see results as early as six weeks following treatment, as the body begins to evacuate the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen 12 weeks after your final treatment.
How long will the improvement in my appearance last?
The treated fat cells are permanently destroyed and will not regenerate. SculpSure is intended for those who maintain a healthy lifestyle, yet experience stubborn fat in treatable areas. As long as significant weight gain is not experienced, you will maintain your SculpSure results.
What should I expect after a treatment?
Many clients report tissue tenderness when the treated area is touched; however the treatment is generally well- tolerated and does not prevent you from resuming your daily activities. Most clients report the sensation is similar to having done a vigorous workout. This feeling typically resolves in less than 2 weeks.
What are the possible side effects of a SculpSure® treatment?
The most common side effects of body sculpting include mild swelling, mild redness, tissue tenderness, and tissue firmness (small, hardened areas in the deep fat layer). All side effects seen during clinical studies resolved on their own. Your treatment provider will review these side effects with you.
How does SculpSure ® compare to CoolSculpting ®?
SculpSure ® is a laser treatment that heats your fat cells, while CoolSculpting ® uses cold to freeze them.
SculpSure ® uses four non-suction applicators that can be configured many ways to provide a fully-customizable treatment. CoolSculpting ®uses various applicators, some of which require strong vacuum suction to pull skin andfat into a freezing chamber. CoolSculpting ® requires longer treatment times, while SculpSure takes just 25 minutes per area.
SculpSure ® and CoolSculpting ® produce similar results in terms of the amount of fat you will lose, however, with CoolSculpting ®, there is a risk of increased fat volume in the treated area, as well as irregularities such as shelving or shark bites. SculpSure’s results leave you with a smooth and natural body contour.
