SculpSure was initially approved by the FDA to target and destroy fat cells that cling to the abdomen region. As soon as SculpSure hit the market, it proved to be a success. In clinical trials, this laser-based, non-invasive body contouring procedure destroyed up to 24% of fat cells in a treatment area – and all with just a 25-minute procedure. It didn’t take long for SculpSure to become a wildly popular treatment, which is why it’s no surprise that the FDA has approved the use of SculpSure on submental fat tissue.
SculpSure works by using a highly contoured handpiece to deliver laser heat energy to the submental tissue. The laser quickly heats and liquefies fat cells until they’re destroyed. Over time, the body metabolizes these cell remnants and disposes of them via waste removal. Most patients only need to undergo 1-2 SculpSure treatments (spaced 6-8 weeks apart) before seeing their ideal results.
