Imagine an effective fat reduction treatment that fits into your lunch break – one that only takes 25 minutes – that’s comfortable and easy. Imagine feeling great about your body, without having to take time and focus away from your work or family, and without rearranging your schedule. SculpSure can help you get into the best shape of your life, without surgery!
SculpSure is the newest and fastest non-invasive treatment FDA-cleared for lasting fat reduction. It works by targeting fat cells with a heated laser technology. Once the fat cells have been damaged, your body metabolizes and clear them away naturally1. SculpSure is non-invasive – meaning no needles or incisions – and is so comfortable you won’t even need to numb! This technology is really the future of fat loss, and we’re proud to be the first office in the world to be able to provide patients with such a safe, quick, and effective treatment.

Feeling self-conscious about stubborn problem areas of excess fat can wreak havoc on your confidence and really detract from your ability to fully enjoy your life. Whether it’s weight that’s hard to shake, love handles that you really don’t love, or a specific problem area you just can’t seem to make a dent in, losing the fat that makes you self-conscious can help you feel like your best self again.
Reflections is proud to bring our patients the very best new technologies and techniques for fat reduction.
Loving the body you’re in is about how you feel and what makes you comfortable. Many of our patients tell us they want something safe, easy, and quick that helps them solve the problem of stubborn fat pockets that they just can’t seem to lose. We think SculpSure is a great option for just that.
SculpSure harnesses the power of a 1060nm hyperthermic (warming) laser for non-invasive lipolysis (fat reduction)1. Treatment panels are applied directly to problem areas using a comfortable support belt. During the procedure, SculpSure’s laser treatment panels alternate between warming and cooling phases. During the warming periods, the laser is working to transmit energy below the surface and target fat cells, without causing any change to the surface level skin. This particular wavelength of laser is ideal for targeting fat cells, in that it provides the highest absorption rate by fat cells of all laser wavelengths, and yet is not absorbed at all by the skin cells – meaning the laser travels through all skin types equally well, without any concern of damage, and targets only the fat cells, with amazing precision1.
During a SculpSure treatment, panels are comfortably attached to the areas to be treated. There is no suction, and the panels are hands-free. SculpSure’s treatment panels deliver hot and cold treatment cycles for 25 minutes. There isn’t any need for numbing or aftercare, so the treatment fits into even the busiest schedules quite easily.
This specific laser technology was developed for use in SculpSure because of the safety inherent in its ability to single out fat cells in its treatment1. This new application for laser therapy was discovered by the brilliant Dr. Rox Anderson, a researcher who has dedicated his life’s work to developing light therapies for medical use. He’s the genius behind Laser Hair Removal, Coolsculpting, and Fraxel Laser.

- Am I a good candidate for SculpSure?
SculpSure works well for a wider range of patients than previous technologies. The ideal candidate:
- Doesn’t have significant loose skin in the treatment areas
- Has a BMI of 30 or lower
- Doesn’t have significant loose skin in the treatment areas
This particular technology works best for those with only pockets of stubborn fat. There are other options, like laser liposuction, for those with more significant fat reduction needs.
- What is SculpSure treatment like?
Sculpsure works by transmitting warming energy through pads that are attached to the treatment areas. During the treatment, you’ll be able to relax and watch TV, take a nap, or even get some work done out of the office. The treatment will take approximately 25 minutes.
- What is the downtime after treatment?
There is no downtime with SculpSure. SculpSure is so gentle, there isn’t even any numbing. After the treatment, you can feel free to get right back to your normal schedule, including work and exercise. Unlike other technologies, SculpSure has no risk of bruising, meaning no one will ever know you’ve had a treatment.
- How soon do you see results from SculpSure?
SculpSure’s thermal technology targets fat cells and damages them, prompting your body to remove these cells through natural metabolism cycles. You will start to notice fat is diminishing around 4-6 weeks, with a full result between 8-12 weeks.
- Will I need multiple treatments of Sculpsure?
Patients will see a reduction in fat after the first session; full results are seen around 12 weeks after treatment. Patients will have the option to do more treatments, for further fat reduction. Each treatment will offer up to 25% reduction in fat for the area treated. SculpSure is not intended as a replacement for healthy diet and exercise, but it does help you reach your goals faster and easier than ever before.
- What is the cost of SculpSure?
Current pricing is $375 per panel, with a 2 panel minimum (so $750-$1500, depending on how many panels. Each panel is approximately the size of an iPhone, and up to 4 panels can be used per 25-minute treatment). Exact quotes based on your goals and treatment options will be given during your complimentary consultation.
- How does SculpSure work?
SculpSure works by gently heating the tissues in the treatment area, raising the temperature of the fat cells beneath the skin to a temperature at which they die off. This cell destruction affects up to a quarter of the fat cells in the treated area, slimming the area over the course of several weeks as the body eliminates the damaged and dead cells from the body.
- How much does SculpSure cost?
SculpSure’s cost is about $375 per panel; usually 2 panels are used for treating at least 2 different areas of your body. This means that your SculpSure cost is about $750 to $1500, depending on the number of panels being used. Within your 25-minute treatment session, a total of 4 panels can be used to help reduce fat from 4 different areas. However, since it is dependent on your requirements, we can give you a full estimate of your costs during a consultation with our cosmetic physicians.
- How many SculpSure treatments are needed?
Usually, it’s recommended that you undergo 1 to 3 sessions every 6 weeks to see optimal Sculpsure results. Your results can usually be seen after 6 weeks with continued improvements over the weeks and months after treatment.
- Does SculpSure hurt?
There are no needles, pain, or downtime involved with SculpSure treatment. In fact, the warming energy delivered to the treatment area has been described as a hot stone massage by some patients. You can watch TV or take a nap during your treatment, since most patients find it very relaxing and comfortable. Additionally, there is no bruising from SculpSure, meaning you don’t need to worry about covering up after treatment.
- How effective Is SculpSure?
Just a single session of SculpSure can reduce up to 25% of fatty tissue in the targeted area. Your SculpSure results are permanent and most people do not require a follow-up treatment. The targeted fat cells are destroyed permanently, and you will see your SculpSure results in about 6 to 8 weeks as the body naturally gets rid of them.
- What areas can SculpSure treat?
The design of SculpSure’s applicators is great for precise treatment in areas like the chin and neck. The SculpSure treatment is very versatile and can be used on multiple areas of the body, including:
- Below the buttocks (banana roll)
Most anywhere on the body where there is excess fat can be treated with SculpSure. Even fat that bulges from a bra can be treated with SculpSure.
- What are the side effects of SculpSure?
After treatment with SculpSure, you may experience side effects like redness, swelling, soreness, bruising, and uncharacteristic firmness in the treatment areas. In general, these side-effects subside quickly.
