SculpSure® is now cleared to treat a double chin (submental area).

SculpSure® is an advanced, non-invasive body contouring treatment that helps patients achieve a natural-looking, slimmer appearance. The fully customizable treatment uses a laser to raise the temperature of body fat to precisely disrupt and destroy fat cells under the skin. The fat cells are then naturally eliminated over time and do not return. Each treatment lasts approximately 25 minutes and requires no surgery or downtime.
