SculpSure Treatment for Stubborn Fat
At Skin Revival, we understand that sometimes diet and exercise just aren’t enough. Stubborn fat pockets can be hard to shed no matter how hard we try. After doing our research on the available technologies, we were extremely impressed with SculpSure.
Since being Ottawa’s first clinic to bring on this advanced technology in 2016, we have treated thousands of satisfied patients.
Over 4 years of experience working with the SculpSure fat reduction laser has taught us the best ways to maximize your results. We are able to treat most areas of stubborn fat on the body. Although results are not seen instantly, you can expect to get a nice reduction and contour over the course of 3-4 months post-treatment.
Commonly treated areas include:
-Love handles or flanks

What is the major differences from other technologies that use freezing such as CoolSculpting?
SculpSure and CoolSculpting are the only two technologies approved in Canada for the permanent reduction of fat. All other devices such as Venus freeze, Radiofrequency, Zerona, Vanquish and Emsculpt all provide only temporary reduction of fat. The actual principal of fat destruction with SculpSure vs. CoolSculpting is the same. Both SculpSure and CoolSculpting are creating thermal damage to the fat cells at a temperature in which they can no longer survive. With CoolSculpting the machine is “cooling or freezing” the fat cells, whereas with SculpSure we are heating them up.
The major difference between SculpSure and CoolSculpting is that heat spreads. Therefore with SculpSure, we are able to provide a soft-contoured edge as well as cover a larger surface area. The applicators with SculpSure are more customizable than the pre-set applicator sizes with CoolSculpting.
|Treatments take just 25 minutes per area.||Treatments take anywhere from 35-60 minutes per area.|
|Treatments are customized for a variety of shapes and sizes.||Treatments are limited by how much fat can be suctioned into the applicator.|
|Contact CoolingTM technology keeps the skin comfortable during treatment. SculpSure is a well-tolerated treatment.||Suction-based applicators freeze and numb the treatment areas. Post treatment massage is required which can be uncomfortable.|
|Side effects are mild and temporary in nature, with the most common being tenderness.||Common side effects are numbness, bruising and itching. More adverse events reported include delayed onset pains, hernias and paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (thickening and expanding of fat cells in the treated area, which require liposuction to fix).|
|The feathering of heat provides a natural-looking result.||Due to the technology, unevenness in the treatment area has been reported.|

SculpSure vs Liposuction
Liposuction is the most well known fat reduction and removal procedure, but it’s also the most expensive, and invasive. Find out how SculpSure compares to Liposuction, and why SculpSure is incomparable as a fat reduction procedure in our SculpSure vs Liposuction comparison.
- A comfortable and well-tolerated treatment**
- Clinically tested in multisite trials in over 100 patients
- A non-invasive, 25-minute treatment with no down time*
- Simple and effective
How does SculpSure work?
SculpSure’s flat, non-suction applicator design rests on the skin’s surface during treatment. Your technician will sit down with you prior to your session and discuss the best options and treatment size/area for you.
Gentle laser pulses target fat deposits under the skin and use heat to damage the cells. Over time, these cells are naturally absorbed and removed from the body with results seen as quickly as six weeks*.
SculpSure offers a number of benefits over other methods of body contouring:
- Works on all skin types, body shapes and sizes
- Procedure is comfortable and well-tolerated by most patients**
- Treatment sessions can address multiple areas at one time
- Treatments take less than 30 minutes to complete
- Most patients achieve desired results normally after 1-2 treatment sessions
SculpSure reduces fat cells and provides visible results. It is important post procedure to continue living a healthy lifestyle as this procedure is unable to inhibit your body from fat cells returning. If this occurs, you may need to have additional body contouring procedures to restore your leaner body profile.
SculpSure is typically recommended for patients that have achieved a healthy weight but have isolated areas of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise.
