We are seeing more and more patients who are looking for non-surgical treatments to reduce unwanted fat here at the Cadogan Clinic. SculpSure is an FDA approved laser treatment which works by heating up and destroying fat cells in targeted areas, known as lipolysis.

Special applicators lie flat on the skin and heat the fat layer whilst also cooling the skin’s surface for comfort. There is no down time with this laser treatment, and you can return home or to work straight away. It’s a great fat reduction treatment for those with stubborn areas of fat which will not shift despite diet and exercise, and it may be preferable to surgical fat removal options such as liposuction.

It’s a state-of-the-art, controlled light-based technology, ideal for patients looking to get rid of stubborn fat.

This fat reduction laser treatment can be carried out on most areas of the body, with the most popular being the stomach, flanks, upper arms (‘bingo wings’) and thighs.

The SculpSure laser treatment is not painful, patients report feeling a tingling sensation with feelings of cool and warmth intermittently.

This treatment is perfect for those with small stubborn areas of fat which will not shift after diet and exercise. For those with larger areas of fat, liposuction or other treatments may be better suited. Sculpsure is also not suitable for those pregnant or breastfeeding.

More than one session may be needed depending on your individual case, but you can be rest assured that the fat cells are permanently destroyed in each treatment. Your practitioner will be able to advise how many sessions are needed and the duration between treatments following an initial consultation.
