What Is SculpSure?

SculpSure™ is a brand-new treatment that reduces fat without liposuction. By applying laser heat to the fat in your abdomen and “love handles,” fat cells are disintegrated, producing an improved body contour.


Who Is a Candidate for SculpSure?

The best candidates for SculpSure™ treatment are people near their ideal body weight that have unwanted fat around the abdomen and/or love handles (flanks).

How It Works

sculpsure-san-franciscoThe SculpSure™ device applies laser light to the specific area of skin, heating the underlying fat. The heat causes the fat cells to be destroyed in that area, resulting in an improved body contour. The treatment can take as little as 25 minutes.


Since no surgery is involved, you can go right back to your normal activities without any downtime required. As the SculpSure™ treatment reduces the fat in your problem areas, you can count on a natural look to show off to your loved ones. Your results are most obvious after about two or three months of therapy. If you want to obtain additional improvement to your love handles or stomach, repeat treatments can be done after 12 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is SculpSure™ Painful?

No, SculpSure™ is not painful. When the patient experiences the treatment, they feel the warmth of the laser as it heats the fat tissue, interspersed with cooling. The temperature is low enough to make the procedure tolerable for almost any individual.

Is SculpSure™ safe?

Yes, SculpSure™ is safe, as shown by the FDA approval process. The laser treatment is non-invasive, meaning that it does not have the same risk of complications as liposuction or gastric bypass procedures. With thorough experience in non-invasive weight loss, Dr. Echavez personally completes a consultation with you prior to performing all SculpSure™ procedures to make sure you are a good candidate for the treatment.

How Much Fat Will SculpSure™ Remove?

Generally, SculpSure™ treatments noticeably reduce about 20-25% of the fat cells in the treated areas. For additional fat reduction, you may schedule a repeat procedure at least 12 weeks after the first treatment.

How many SculpSure™ treatments will I need to get results?

Most patients will see improvement after one session with SculpSure™; however, if you still want additional fat reduced after your initial treatment, schedule a consultation with Dr. Echavez to determine the best path for success in your body contouring goals.

Can SculpSure™ replace physical activity and balanced nutrition?

No. While SculpSure™ helps to target problem areas, it should only be used as a contouring and shaping procedure. Laser treatment is suitable for individuals who are close to their goal weight, not individuals who have significant weight problems. For the best results, combine the treatment with regular exercise and a well-balanced diet.

What Should I Do Next?

If SculpSure™ seems like the right way to reshape your abdomen and “love handles,” schedule a complementary consultation with Dr. Echavez to find out if you are a suitable candidate. Dr. Echavez is available to answer any additional questions about the procedure and its lasting effects.
