You will feel SculpSure working - but it won't be painful.
We’ve treated 10 patients over the past 2 weeks, and everyone has had about the same reaction: you’re going to feel a warming sensation, but it’s not painful. If you find a particular spot has warmed to an uncomfortable level, the nurse is able to adjust the treatment in that area, by turning down the laser on that panel. A warmer treatment is not necessarily a more effective treatment, so do let the nurse know if you’re feeling too warm in certain spot. For the few patients who have asked for the laser intensity to be adjusted, the correction has been quick and the treatment has been comfortable from that point on.
In studies, patients indicated an average 3/10 level of discomfort. You will feel it working, but it won’t be painful.
Our office prides itself on being early adopters of the most effective treatments. That’s why we were the very first office in the world to own a SculpSure machine. We LOVE this technology because it’s fast, comfortable, and effective – everything our patients ask for!

First SculpSure Treatment
Thanks for your question!
Sculpsure uses laser to destroy subcutaneous fat cells that your body then reabsorbs. In our experience (and having it done to myself!) it has a cycling effect that heats the skin in short bursts that can become somewhat uncomfortable, then it cools. It actually gets easier as the treatment progresses and truly lasts only 25 minutes. The skin actually feels cool when you touch it after the laser is removed.
Afterward, you can return to work immediately. You will want to drink plenty of water and massage the area that was treated twice daily. You see the results over the next 8-12 weeks.
Hope this helps!
This 25 minute non-invasive body contouring treatment is well tolerated as a system for reduction of stubborn fat. Every patient is different however, most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which again, is generally well tolerated. Look for a complimentary consultation in your area to find out if you are a candidate.
SculpSure is not a painless procedure, however, I would argue that it is much better tolerated than most of effective non-invasive lipolysis device. In our practice, most patient are able to tolerate the "maximum" energy without requiring any additional pain control. The device has two mechanisms of pain control 1) adjustable energy levels, and 2) cooling mechanism that gives patient a "break" during procedure. Additionally, patient generally do not have any significant residual pain after the session other than mild local tenderness.
Sculpsure results in at least 24% fat reduction in area of treatment per treatment session
This is completely dependent on your own body. Your body decides how fast it disposes of your dead fat cells. Everyone’s body metabolizes these cells differently and while you should start seeing results around 6 weeks after your first treatment, you might not see your final results until about 12 weeks out. SculpSure treatments do require some patience but the benefits far outweigh the extra time.*
