Most fitness goals usually involve looking more toned and losing weight. The feeling of being able to look and feel great is one like no other. Hence, you make exercise and meal plans that you follow religiously.

Often, it happens that you follow your plan diligently and lose weight but the end result is not what you had hoped for. There may still be areas of fat that don’t seem to go away no matter what you do, causing you to get frustrated and discouraged. Looking at these tiny deposits of fat despite putting your body through a rigorous exercise routine can be disheartening.


Toning your body isn’t the same as losing weight, but it is an important part of fitness. It involves contouring your body to more aesthetically pleasing and desired shape. Achieving this look, however, isn’t possible with bits of stubborn fat that won’t go away. Getting rid of the stubborn fat, however, is possible through a procedure known as SculpSure.

SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring procedure through which you can shed excess fat on your body without the need for invasive surgery. It uses laser light energy to remove excess fat from problem areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, waist, and buttocks. At the end of the procedure, your body will be more contoured and your skin will appear healthy and youthful.


SculpSure relies on heat to break down fat deposits and eliminate them from your body. The SculpSure device provides laser energy that is passed over the accumulated fatty cells. The laser works on the fat and breaks it down into smaller, more manageable sediments.

To ensure the treatment area does not burn due to the heat, contact cooling technology is applied to the area simultaneously. The heating and cooling of the area keep you comfortable while working to burn the unwanted fat cells.

The entire process takes less than an hour to finish. Your body will begin to slowly eliminate the broken fat cells over the course of a few weeks after the procedure. Unlike other procedures, you can treat about four problem areas at the same time. This gives you greater results with fewer sittings.


To qualify for the treatment you should have a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or less. As it is non-invasive, you don’t have to worry about any harmful side effects. You may experience some mild swelling or redness, but they will subside quickly.

Additionally, SculpSure can be safely used on all skin types. So it doesn’t matter if you have oily, sensitive, dry, or a combination of each in your skin. You can feel confident that SculpSure will work for you.


SculpSure is an effective contouring treatment that can help people who don’t like the idea of invasive procedures. It will take time for you to notice significant changes, but in time, the results you see will be aesthetically pleasing.

SculpSure works to eliminate excess stubborn fat that cannot be removed through normal diet and exercise, but will not help you drop a significant amount of weight. Before undergoing the treatment, you must ensure that you understand the procedure and set the appropriate expectations.
