Body contouring is a type of cosmetic procedure designed to reshape and enhance the body’s appearance by reducing unwanted fat. Techniques like FlexSure™ RF Body Sculpting, TempSure® Firm, and SculpSure® utilize advanced radiofrequency and laser energy technologies to target and diminish stubborn fat areas, promoting a more toned and defined appearance. These non-invasive methods offer a safe and effective alternative to traditional surgical procedures.

FlexSure™ RF Body Sculpting
How It Works: FlexSure™ RF Body Sculpting utilizes radio frequency (RF) energy to heat the deep layers of skin and underlying fat. This heat stimulates collagen production in the skin, leading to tighter and smoother skin. It also helps in fat reduction by heating the fat cells, causing them to break down over time. The body then naturally processes and removes these damaged, unwanted fat cells.
Areas of Focus: It’s particularly effective for areas traditionally difficult to treat (due to its wrappable applicator), such as the arms, thighs, abdomen, and flanks. Its flexible nature allows for a more contoured approach.
How It Works: TempSure® Firm is a non-invasive treatment device utilizing radiofrequency (RF) heating combined with a special massage head. This dual action not only heats the skin to stimulate collagen production (leading to firmer, more youthful-looking skin) but also helps in smoothing the skin’s texture. This is particularly beneficial for reducing the appearance of cellulite, where skin can appear dimpled or uneven.
Areas of Focus: The treatments can reduce the fat layer by about 15-20% and simultaneously tighten skin through soft tissue coagulation. A significant advantage of TempSure Firm is the short treatment duration (around 8-10 minutes per session) and minimal downtime compared to traditional body-tightening surgeries. It’s versatile for use on many body areas, including those with cellulite stretch marks, such as the thighs, abdomen, and arms.
SculpSure® Body Contouring
How It Works: SculpSure® uses laser energy to target and heat fat cells under the skin without affecting the skin’s surface. Known as laser lipolysis, SculpSure is a light-based technology designed to disrupt and eliminate fat cells. It can reduce fat cells by up to 24% in a 25-minute treatment. This heating destroys the structural integrity of the fat cells, leading to their natural elimination from the body over time. The process results in a reduction of fat in the treated areas.
Areas of Focus: SculpSure® is effective for reducing stubborn fat in specific areas like the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, and under the chin. It’s particularly useful for those areas where fat tends to accumulate and is hard to eliminate through diet and exercise alone.
Which One Is Right for You?
While all are effective options, there are differences between the treatments. FlexSure™ RF is great for skin tightening and fat reduction, especially in tricky areas like the arms and thighs. TempSure® Firm is more about smoothing your skin and reducing cellulite, helping with those dimples and stretch marks. SculpSure®, on the other hand, is all about zapping away stubborn fat, particularly in spots like your belly or love handles.
