- How Does SculpSure™ Work?
The SculpSure device is a laser. The laser light is shined on the skin for approximately 25 minutes. During this time, the laser light heats the underlying fat and initiates a process that leads to the loss of fat cells. Results become visible over the following months*.
The heating energy of the SculpSure™ laser also boosts the production of collagen and elastin, the two necessary building blocks for youthful, healthy skin. The new collagen and elastin will help the treated area look firmer and younger*.

The price for SculpSure procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will create a customized treatment plan, in person, with you that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
- Is Lasering the Fat with SculpSure™ Painful?
SculpSure™ is not painful. Most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated.2
- Is SculpSure™ safe?
SculpSure™ is FDA approved and was found to be completely safe during the FDA approval process. It is completely non-invasive, which eliminates all of the complications that can occur with liposuction. In our office, Dr. Anterasian performs all SculpSure™ procedures. He has extensive experience with non-invasive fat reduction and will do a complete consultation prior to treatment. He will ensure that a prospective SculpSure™ patient is a good candidate for the procedure and can undergo the procedure safely.
- How Much Fat Will SculpSure™ Remove?
SculpSure™ treatments result in a noticeable fat reduction in the treated areas*. You should be able to see the reduction in fat with your own eyes. Studies show that the treatment can remove up to 20-25% of the fat in the treated areas*. For many patients, that is enough fat reduction. Some patients will wish to undergo a second procedure to remove additional fat.
- How many SculpSure™ treatments will I need to get results?
Many patients will see sufficient improvement in one SculpSure™ treatment. Some patients will choose to do a second treatment to remove additional fat. Dr. Anterasian will work with each patient to determine the best treatment plan in order to achieve the desired results.
- Can SculpSure™ replace physical activity and balanced nutrition?
No. SculpSure™ should be thought of as a body shaping and contouring procedure. It is designed to help you achieve the body form that you desire. It is not intended for patients who are significantly overweight. SculpSure™ treatments work best when combined with a healthy diet and a good exercise program.
- How long before I can resume normal activities?
There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately.
- What is the different between fat loss and weight loss?
The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout adult life. After the SculpSure treatment, the destroyed fat cells will never return. However, as we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller, but typically do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas.
