What is warm sculpting?

Warm sculpting is a non-invasive, body contouring process for the reduction of stubborn fat, using SculpSure‘s advanced laser technology to melt away fat cells. The procedure is also known as body sculpting or warmsculpting.

What areas can be treated with warm sculpting?

The SculpSure technology, utlised during the warmsculpting process is FDA-cleared and TGA listed to reduce stubborn fat in the belly, love handles, back, and thighs.

When will I see results?

Following the SculpSure warm sculpting treatments, visible results can be seen about 6 weeks after the procedures. The body begins the elimination process on the destroyed fat cells and typically the best results are noticeable after 3 months.

How long before I can resume normal activities?

Being a non invasive procedure, SculpSure allows patients to resume normal activities immediately following a treatment with zero downtime.

Cool Sculpting Vs Warm Sculpting

SculpSure is ideal for people with trouble spots of fat, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise.


But what exactly is the difference between Cool Sculpting and Warm Sculpting?


If you are looking into non-invasive cosmetic procedures for body contouring, then you are probably familiar with cool sculpting. You may have heard of warm sculpting and are wondering what is the difference between these two procedures.


Firstly let’s take a look at how they are similar. Both body contouring procedures are non-invasive for removing unwanted fat from trouble spots on your body, and these are both carried out without any incisions, the need for anesthesia or time off work.


So what exactly is warm sculpting?


The process of warm sculpting involves the use of a hyperthermic laser to breakdown unwanted fat and tighten skin, most often carried out with SculpSure equipment. The treatment is applied via a number of applicators that are secured to a patient’s back, abdomen, thighs,  or flanks, and it works by destroying the subcutaneous fat cells that lie beneath the surface of the skin.


To ensure patient comfort, a cooling process is jointly applied whilst the warming procedure is conducted. The entire process for the removal of the broken down fat cells, takes a number of weeks for them to be eliminated from the patient’s body via the lymphatic system.


Visible signs of slimming and toning of the areas worked on, can be seen in around four to six weeks after the procedure.


What is cool sculpting exactly?


Similar to warm sculpting, the removal by non-surgical means of unwanted fat and the toning of stubborn or bulging areas on the body. The treatment requires that the patient is fitted with a curved applicator that uses two cooling plates to suction fatty tissue in between them. During the procedure, a patient may feel some discomfort as the applicators create a pulling or tugging sensation and the temperature is at 4° Celsius.


The time a procedure takes, to be performed depends entirely on the area of the body being worked on. A cool sculpting session typically lasts between 30 to 60 minutes.


The body removes the frozen fat cells through naturally occurring processes, similar to warm sculpting.


Cool sculpting versus warm sculpting – what’s the difference?


You are probably wondering which process is most desirable for achieving the best results with the least amount of discomfort.


With both cool and warm sculpting, the subcutaneous fat cells are destroyed completely by using either heat or cooling processes.


Both procedures, being non-invasive are safer than liposuction, as they don’t require to go under the surgeons knife.


Warm sculpting can target more than one area during a treatment, so offers a shorter time (approximately 25 mins) to achieve the desired effect. With multiple applicators being used on different parts of the body at the one time, which differs with how cool sculpting works. Cool sculpting can only work on the one area, so this limits the procedure to target just one zone, which may be a problem for patients who have more than one part of their body that needs fat cell removal.


With cool sculpting from a comfort point of view, the idea of pinching the skin to squeeze out the fat cells can cause bruising from the pinching, tugging and pulling of the applicators. It also requires vigorous massaging after the treatment. Also small areas are not as easily targeted, unlike warm sculpting that has a greater degree of fine tuning and accuracy.


SculpSure being a warm hyperthermic laser, avoids these problems making it the choice of many people for the best non-invasive body contouring procedure.

What to expect

Clients lie back comfortably on the clinic’s bed, and the SculpSure technology is laid over the areas being targeted. When the treatment starts, initially you will feel a cooling sensation, which helps keep the skin comfortable during treatment. This will last the entire treatment  and most patients feel a deep warmth or tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-tolerated. After the 25-minute treatment is finished, you can resume your daily activities, as there is no post-treatment down time.
