Targeted laser energy heats fat cells under the skin without affecting the skin’s surface.
SculpSure raises the temperature of fat cells damaging their structural integrity.
Over the next three months, the damaged fat cells are processed and eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system.
Fat cells are permanently removed and will not regenerate. Results can be seen as quickly as six weeks, and optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks.
