We all have it — but the bottom line is that unwanted fat can be a blow to your ego.
Whatever it might be, a fat reduction body contouring treatment can help target that unwanted fat and leave you feeling confident in your skin.
Learn how a quick and easy in-office treatment can help rid your body of those trouble spots and leave you with results that you’ll love.
What Is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a non-invasive laser body contouring system used to permanently eliminate stubborn and unwanted fat cells through non-invasive lipolysis.
At Lake Oswego Vein and Aesthetic, we use SculpSure on both men and women of various body types to help them feel more confident and secure in their skin. Because the nonsurgical procedure requires no incisions or anesthesia, it is becoming increasingly popular to help with fat reduction.
Our team of registered laser technicians is skilled in making sure treatments are done correctly, so you won’t have to worry when you’re in our office. Contact us today for a consultation.
How SculpSure Works
During a SculpSure treatment, the SculpSure device is wrapped around you like a belt. Using specific wavelengths and heat, the hands-free heat laser belt works to eliminate unwanted fat cells in a targeted area of your body.
Its applicators deliver a 1060-nanometer diode laser that reaches temperatures t of 116.6 F, hot enough to kill fat cells underneath the skin while leaving other tissues unharmed. But don’t be alarmed, a SculpSure treatment will not burn the skin or cause any pain.
As treatment continues, the SculpSure device alternates between a cooling effect and a heat laser.
As a patient, you just get to relax while the SculpSure does the work. From start to finish, a SculpSure treatment lasts about 25 minutes, so bring a book, take a nap, or enjoy the quiet.
Areas Where SculpSure Can Be Used
SculpSure fat reduction is an effective method for eliminating unwanted fat in many places of the body. In 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared SculpSure to be used on the upper and lower abdominal area and the flanks (the areas around the sides of your body from your upper abdomen to your back).
Patients can also utilize SculpSure treatment to eliminate fat in other areas, including under the chin or on the thighs.
Ideal Candidates for SculpSure
An ideal SculpSure treatment candidate is committed to living a well-balanced lifestyle that consists of maintaining their weight with a healthy diet and regular physical exercise. This will help ensure that the results from your SculpSure treatment last a lifetime.
Ideally, a candidate is within 10 to 20 pounds of their goal body weight because the size of fat cells can fluctuate as total body weight changes. If a SculpSure patient goes on to gain a considerable amount of weight post-treatment, they’ll likely need to receive more SculpSure to maintain their results. However, once the fat cells in the treated area are destroyed, they are expelled from your body forever — but you can gain weight in other areas from different fat cells.
It’s important to note that SculpSure is not a weight loss treatment procedure, which is why it’s recommended that patients are already within range of their ideal body weight.
Additionally, a patient’s Body Mass Index (BMI) should be under 30.
Lastly, an ideal candidate will have realistic expectations about the treatment before beginning.
If you have stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise and meets this criterion, SculpSure could be a great option for you. Contact Lake Oswego Vein & Aesthetic to set up a consultation and get on our calendar.

What to Expect During Your SculpSure Treatment
Receiving a SculpSure treatment is easy. As a patient, all you need is about 30 minutes of free time and maybe a good book to read.
A SculpSure treatment is noninvasive and requires no anesthesia. In all, it lasts about 25 minutes and is so pain-free that you could even take a nap during your appointment.
Here’s what you can expect:
- 25–30 minutes for treatment time
- No downtime following treatment
- A reduction of 3-4 cm in the circumference of the treated areas
- Some improvement in skin quality
- Potential skin tightening for those with lost skin laxity
- 6–12 weeks for expected results
At Lake Oswego Vein & Aesthetic, we pride ourselves on prioritizing patient comfort and keeping patients aware of what is happening every step of the way. Our personable team is different from other medical spas — the same person who does your consultation also performs your treatment and helps with post-care instruction.

FAQs About SculpSure
Is a SculpSure Fat Reduction Treatment Painful?
No, there is no pain associated with a SculpSure treatment, but patients will likely feel the heat from the laser as it damages the fat cells.
SculpSure fat reduction is so painless that you can enjoy a book, put on a podcast, or take a nap — whatever you’d like to do in an uninterrupted 25 minutes!
Is There Any Downtime Necessary After a SculpSure Treatment?
With SculpSure treatment, there is no required downtime following the procedure. Patients are allowed to resume normal activities immediately following their appointment.
At Lake Oswego Vein & Aesthetics, we do warn patients that the targeted area of your body might experience mild discomfort following the procedure — similar to what you might feel after finishing an intense workout — but nothing that would require prescribed downtime.
How Do I Know If SculpSure Is Right for Me?
SculpSure is clinically proven to be safe and effective. It’s FDA-approved for the treatment of the abdomen, love handles, and under the chin.
If you’re experiencing unwanted fat that won’t reduce with diet and exercise, and you fit the criteria for an ideal SculpSure candidate, receiving a SculpSure fat reduction treatment could be a great option for you.
To find out for sure, contact Lake Oswego Vein & Aesthetics to schedule a consultation. Here we will discuss your problem areas, your treatment options, if you’re an ideal candidate, payment options, and get you on our schedule.
How Many Sessions Does SculpSure Take?
The number of sessions needed will differ from patient to patient.
This is something we can discuss during your consultation and as we monitor your SculpSure treatment results. Results will typically begin to appear in several weeks following your procedure.
For some, multiple sessions may be advised to achieve optimal outcomes.
Are SculpSure Results Permanent?
Yes, SculpSure fat reduction treatment results are permanent.
Once fat cells are destroyed, like they are using our technology, they cannot return even if you gain weight. The permanence of the procedure is one reason it has become so appealing to patients.
*Although fat cells are permanently destroyed in the targeted area of your body where you received treatment, you can still store fat in other areas of your body. Results may vary from patient to patient and are not guaranteed.
How Much Does SculpSure Cost?
The cost of SculpSure treatment can vary with each patient.
We take into consideration the severity of the area being treated, how many sessions are needed, and more.
For an accurate cost on your SculpSure treatment, schedule a consultation with Lake Oswego Vein & Aesthetic. We’re happy to discuss treatment costs and inform you of our payment plan options.

- A quick and easy 25-minute treatment session
- No associated pain
- No downtime or recovery period

*Please remember that every patient’s experience is different and results are not guaranteed.
