There are so many ways that you may attempt to lose weight, yet sometimes you may find that you just aren't successful. You’ve tried a healthy diet, exercise, and getting more sleep, but nothing seems to get rid of those stubborn pockets of excess fat.
Body contouring procedures and non-invasive forms of fat loss should never be considered substitutes for diet and exercise, but they can be great options if you can’t get certain pockets of fat to dissipate through healthy living. At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we are proud to offer SculpSure™, a non-invasive body contouring treatment to help you achieve a slimmer appearance.
Schedule a SculpSure consultation with our experienced physicians by calling (212) 688-5882 today. We happily welcome patients from Manhattan, Woodside, NYC, and worldwide.

What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a new non-invasive laser body contouring treatment. This laser fat removal system works by directing hyperthermic energy into the areas that are being treated. The energy heats the fat cells and surrounding tissues, agitating the fat and causing it to be released from your body. The body naturally removes the fat cells and leaves the treated area flat and firm. The eliminated fat cells will not regenerate.
The heating energy of the SculpSure laser also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, the two necessary building blocks for youthful, healthy skin. Collagen and elastin help the treated area appear firmer and younger.
SculpSure can be used to treat the following areas:
- Love handles
- Double chin
- Other locations with fat deposits
Benefits of SculpSure
SculpSure offers a non-invasive alternative to other highly effective, but minimally-invasive fat reduction techniques such as SmartLipo™.
Dr. Bruce Katz, the Director of JUVA Skin & Laser Center, was the only dermatologist in the country who was involved in the FDA trials for SculpSure. He recognized the many ways that this treatment could benefit his patients and he was the first doctor to perform the procedure in New York.
The benefits of SculpSure include:
- It is FDA-approved
- It can be used to treat fat deposits on multiple areas of the body
- It is non-surgical and non-invasive
- Treatment plans are customizable
- Most patients experience no discomfort from the treatment
- Results can often be seen from one session
- Most treatment sessions can be completed in 25 minutes
- Up to 4 areas can be treated at the same time
- There is no downtime
- The fat cells that are removed cannot come back
SculpSure vs CoolSculpting®
If you've made the decision that you want to be free from excess fat, you may be wondering which non-surgical treatment option is right for you. Many of our patients ask us how SculpSure compares to Coolsculpting®. During a CoolSculpting procedure, a dermatologist would utilize a device that would freeze your targeted fat cells. The frozen fat cells eventually die and are naturally removed by your body. Here are some other facts about CoolSculpting:
- Only one area can be targeted per treatment
- Treatments take about one hour
- Most treated areas need 2-4 treatments in order to maximize results
As opposed to CoolSculpting that utilizes cooling technology, SculpSure treatments are delivered by a laser system that heats your fat cells, essentially melting them. Additionally, the heat from SculpSure encourages collagen and elastin production in your treated areas. This encourages healthy and youthful tissue growth, leaving your treated areas thinner, tighter and beautiful. Once the 25-minute SculpSure treatment is complete, you are able to return to your day with no lingering numb sensation like what is sometimes felt with Coolsculpting. Delayed onset pain has also been described after Coolsculpting.
At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we do not offer treatments with CoolSculpting. We want to provide the best products and technology to our patients, while saving you money, time, and maximizing your results. Because SculpSure generally only requires one to two treatments per area, it saves our patients time and makes their fat loss more efficient.
Am I a Candidate for SculpSure?
Men and women who have stubborn pockets of excess fat may benefit from SculpSure. A consultation with our experienced physicians is a great way to determine your candidacy for this procedure. They will discuss your goals and evaluate your physical attributes in order to decide if you may benefit from this effective fat removal treatment.
You may be an ideal SculpSure candidate if you:
- Are in good general health
- Struggle with fat that is resistant to diet and exercise
- Are looking for a non-invasive treatment option
- Understand that body contouring procedures are not a substitute for weight loss
SculpSure Treatment to Eliminate Neck and Chin Fat
A double chin, also known as submental fat, is a common condition that occurs when a layer of fat forms below your chin. A double chin is often associated with weight gain, but you do not have to be overweight to have one. Genetics or loose skin resulting from aging may also cause a double chin. SculpSure is now FDA-cleared to reduce fat under the chin.
JUVA conducted the first clinical trial investigating the SculpSure laser treatment to decrease fat cells under the chin. The subjects received two treatments approximately 6 weeks apart with SculpSure on the submental area for fat reduction. At the conclusion of the study, 100% of the patients were satisfied with their results. We are one of the first cosmetic centers to offer this innovative solution.
SculpSure’s new technology is optimized to eliminate unwanted fat under the chin. A smaller applicator provides precise and effective treatments resulting in a slimmer appearance of the chin and neck.
Reduce Sweating with SculpSure
At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we conducted a clinical trial investigating SculpSure laser treatment to decrease sweat production. The subjects were followed for one year and were asked to return to the office for follow-up visits. At the conclusion of the study, 100% of patients continued to see reduced sweat production at their one-year follow-up. We are the first center in the country to offer this innovative solution to unwanted sweat!
SculpSure is a revolutionary way to help stop underarm sweating. It can help you eliminate the need for antiperspirants that often contain heavy metals such as aluminum and zirconium. The use of antiperspirants won’t even prevent the body from sweating altogether — they only reduce sweat by 20 to 30 percent depending on the strength.
Using laser energy, SculpSure will effectively reduce the output of sweat glands under your arms and tackle the root of the problem. You can live your life more comfortably and lift your arms without worrying about those moisture stains!
Benefits of SculpSure to reduce sweating:
• Results in one 25-minute treatment
• No more sweat stains on your clothing
• Stay clean, confident and carefree
• Reduce or eliminate your need for antiperspirants
What to Expect from a SculpSure Treatment
Prior to your treatment, you will receive a consultation to discuss the areas of concern and develop a treatment plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Most patients see results from one treatment, though some patients need a second session to achieve the most effective outcome.
The treatment itself is non-invasive and there is no need for any anesthetic. Applicators will be placed on the treatment area to deliver the laser energy. When the treatment starts, you will feel a cooling sensation that will continue throughout the session to help you remain comfortable. Most patients feel some warmth and tingling in the treatment area throughout the session. The average session lasts for 25 minutes, and patients can feel free to multitask during this time. Once complete, the process can be repeated on any additional treatment areas.
There is no downtime after the treatment. You can return to work or resume your normal daily activities after a SculpSure session.
The heat from the treatment causes damage to the fat cells that you want to eliminate. Your body will begin to get rid of the unwanted fat cells over the next three months. The body considers these damaged cells unnecessary and will filter them through your body just as it would any other loose tissue or particles. The fat will dissipate naturally and disappear from your body.
The number of fat cells in our bodies typically remains at a constant number once we reach adulthood. When we lose weight, the fat cells become smaller but are not eliminated. With SculpSure, the fat cells are permanently removed and are unable to regenerate. The results of this elimination can be seen as early as six weeks after a treatment session.
It is important to continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle after this fat removal treatment in order to maintain the best results. While the fat cells that have been eliminated cannot come back, the remaining cells in the area can still grow in size due to weight gain.
