Every weight loss journey is different, but many people seem to hit a point where they stop seeing the results they wanted. It can be defeating to not see improvement in some of the areas you’re most self-conscious about. Is all of the dieting and exercise really worth it if you still have a muffin top or haven’t lost any weight in your thighs?
In the past, you didn’t really have a lot of options when it came to eliminating pockets of stubborn fat. Thankfully, you can now achieve a natural-looking, slimmer appearance without surgery or a severely limited diet. With WarmSculpting™ with SculpSure®, you can destroy stubborn fat and boost your self-confidence.

Before you come in, here is some helpful information about how WarmSculpting with SculpSure works and what you can expect from your treatment.
First, what’s going on with that stubborn fat?
Your mind isn’t deceiving you — it really is easier to lose weight in certain spots compared to others. Some fat cells are simply more resistant to diet and exercise.
Basically, your fat cells have two types of receptors: alpha and beta. Alpha receptors tell cells to hold onto fat for later use. Beta receptors tell your cells to release fat for immediate use. Each cell has both types of receptors, but one is always dominant. The more alpha receptors in a cell, the more likely it is to hold onto fat.
If your beta-heavy cells are located in common problem areas, you may be able to lose weight easier in the stomach and lower back (for men) or the butt, hips, and thighs (for women). Unfortunately, this may not be the case for you. Genetics, hormone levels, and lifestyle factors all play a role in where stubborn fat is located and there isn’t much you can do to change these elements.
How WarmSculpting with SculpSure works
During a WarmSculpting treatment session, up to four applicators will be placed on the treatment area. These applicators emit a type of light-based energy that specifically targets fat cells below the skin.
The energy raises the temperature of the fat cells to the point that their structural integrity and membrane are damaged. Basically, the fat cells are destroyed. Over the next three months, they'll be processed and eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system. These fat cells are permanently removed and will not regenerate.
What parts of the body can WarmSculpting with SculpSure treat?
WarmSculpting with SculpSure was created to specifically target those common problem areas where alpha receptor-heavy fat cells collect. Treatment areas include:
- Love handles
WarmSculpting with SculpSure was also recently approved for fat located under the chin.
Treatments, timing, and results
Each WarmSculpting treatment takes just 25 minutes. There is no downtime associated with the procedure and you’ll be able to return to normal activities immediately.
The amount of treatments you’ll need depends on the area you wish to treat. However, we find that most patients receive 3-5 treatments for maximum results.
When it comes to results, you’ll see results during your treatment schedule but won’t see optimal results until six to twelve weeks after your final session.
As a note, WarmSculpting with SculpSure is not a weight-loss tool and works best for people currently dieting and exercising. It’s approved for people with a BMI of 49 or below.
