As seen on E! News, The Doctors, and Dr. Oz, the new SculpSure treatment is an innovative noninvasive laser treatment that uses heat to destroy up to 24% of fat in the treated area.
SculpSure Now FDA Approved for Treatment of Double Chins
As of September 27, 2017, SculpSure is now cleared by the FDA to treat a double chin, also known as the submental area. SculpSure was previously cleared to treat the abdomen, flanks (or love handles), inner and outer thighs, and the back.
Additionally, SculpSure is cleared to treat patients with a BMI (Body Mass Index) up to 43, whereas competing procedures are only approved for a BMI up to 30, which makes SculpSure an appropriate treatment for many more patients.
The principal investigator in the most recent SculpSure clinical trials said that most of the 57 patients in the trial received two treatments six weeks apart, and that ?the short treatment time, 100% satisfaction rate, and dramatic contour reductions typically seen in the study patients give SculpSure the edge as the treatment of choice for the submental area.
Since the SculpSure submental fat treatment can be performed in as little as 25 minutes, with no recovery time and no anesthesia, that makes SculpSure a great choice for many people who are frustrated by their double chin.

About SculpSureSculpSure targets areas of unwanted fat and is particularly suited to treat the abdomen or "muffin top," and flanks, or "love handles." Each treatment session is just 25 minutes long, with most clients needing between one and two treatments total for a given area. In just six weeks, you'll begin to see results, with optimal results in as early as 12 weeks. Clients can see up to a 24% fat reduction, often with skin tightening over the area of fat loss.
SculpSure is passive and uses the body's own healing mechanisms to create its effect. It's entirely noninvasive — no injections, punctures, or even bruising to the skin occur. Unlike predecessor freezing fat loss treatments, SculpSure is not painful. There's zero pain, zero anesthesia, and no downtime whatsoever. Patients will feel alternating waves of a cooling, then warming sensation, as if a cool pack and then heating pad are interchanged. The treatment is totally customizable to your specific area of need and sensation tolerance.
SculpSure uses a diode laser to emit its light energy thru glass made from the jewel sapphire. The sapphire glass protects and cools the skin, allowing the laser energy to harmlessly pass through your skin to exclusively target subcutaneous fat cells. Surrounding nonfat tissues are left untouched. The process can be compared to the way sunshine (infrared light) passes into your car without damaging the glass, while creating heat inside the car.
Once the laser light warms the subcutaneous fat to about 110° Fahrenheit, the fat cells break down and die. Macrophages, a type of cell that responds to injury, reach the treatment site at 4 weeks and digest the dead fat cells. The fat cells are cleared away naturally by your body's lymphatic system, and are eliminated as waste over time. These fat cells are gone forever — they cannot regenerate. Between 12 to 24 weeks, fibroblasts have arrived and lay down new collagen, which explains the skin tightening effect.
SculpSure is FDA Approved for its safety and effectiveness. You can return to work or your activities immediately after treatment. There is zero recovery or downtime.
