If you have resistant pockets of fat that just don’t respond to diet and exercise, there’s another option available in SculpSure® laser body contouring. This noninvasive treatment, offered by Astrid Cole, RN, at Patrick County Family Practice in Stuart, Virginia, eliminates fat from trouble spots that just refuse to slim down even when you’re at a normal, healthy weight.
SculpSure is a laser treatment that permanently destroys fat cells in treated areas. The energy of the laser penetrates your outer layer of skin to heat up the fat cells beneath so they can no longer survive. Your body then eliminates the destroyed fat cells through your natural waste removal systems.
What areas can be treated with SculpSure?
SculpSure can be effective for many of the areas on your body that are traditionally hard to reduce with diet and exercise alone, including your:
- Love handles
- Submental area (under the chin)

Am I a good candidate for SculpSure?
If you’re at or near your ideal body weight, but have areas that are still pudgy or bulging, SculpSure is for you. SculpSure isn’t intended for comprehensive weight loss, however. You’ll get the best results if you already follow a relatively healthy diet and are physically active.
Does SculpSure hurt?
Most patients find that SculpSure treatments don’t hurt. The procedure doesn’t require anesthesia or even topical numbing creams.
You feel warmth, tingling, and tugging during a session as the wand and energy glide along your skin.
Additionally, SculpSure requires no downtime following treatment. You can even schedule a session on your lunch hour and go back to work or school immediately afterward.
How many SculpSure treatments will I need?
The number of SculpSure treatments you need depends on your desired results. Some people are satisfied after one session, but many people opt for multiple treatments. Any single treatment can reduce up to 24% of fat cells in a given area*.
How long do the results of SculpSure last?
With SculpSure, fat cells are permanently destroyed and can’t regenerate or swell back up. This makes SculpSure different from when you lose weight with diet and exercise. The calorie reduction of conventional weight-loss efforts makes fat cells shrink, but they always have the potential to plump back up. Fat cells affected by SculpSure are gone for good and eliminated from your body.
