Hot Sculpting


What is Hot Sculpting?

Hotsculpting is a treatment that combines two procedures in one to eliminate unwanted fat and tighten the skin. A laser gently and safely heats the fat to the point of cell death which are then processed or eliminated from the body. At the same time, the laser tightens the skin by generating new collagen, resulting in an overall improvement of contour laxity and elasticity in the treated areas.

How does it work?


Often many of us have stubborn areas of fat that need a little extra help

Hotscuplting uses focused energy to heat the fat causing natural cell death while leaving the skin unharmed

As the fat cells break down, your body either naturally processes it or eliminates it permanently

During the same treatment, the heat from the laser contracts the collagen fibres to tighten and rejuvenate your skin


The result is your ideal shape that you feel comfortable in

Which areas of the body can be sculpted?

Any area of the body:

  • Face/Jawline (contouring)
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Abs
How can a laser get rid of fat cells?

The laser safely and rapidly heats up your skin, targeting its energy to the level beneath your skin where the fat exists. Your fat is heated by the laser energy causing it to break down and die. Once the fat is affected and eliminated, it is gone for good.

What can I expect from the treatment?

Each person is different but you can expect minimal to no discomfort during the treatment. Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or minor swelling that will diminish after a few hours. You can resume your daily activities immediately following the treatment.

Where does the fat go?

After the treatment, the fat breaks down and is either naturally processed by the body or eliminated from the body altogether.

What does it feel like?

The first part of the treatment consists of deep heating over the desired treatment area. Initially, you may feel gradual warming and after a few minutes, you may experience some very brief hot sensations in the treatment area. The overall sensation can be similar to a hot stone massage or dry sauna. The second part involves more superficial heating. Depending on the treatment area, the heat generated is slightly more intense but very tolerable. Post-treatment your skin will feel warm to the touch and may be pink or even red for a few days.

How long does it take to see results?

Results will vary with every individual. Most patients will see immediate tightening followed by a gradual change in contour as your fat breaks down. Depending on your desired results, you may require multiple treatments

Post Treatment Recommendations

Post treatment recommendations  after a  Hot Sculpting Treatment

The fat cells that have been destroyed during treatment will release the triglycerides, which are then broken down into 3 free fatty acids and glycerol, and transported to the liver to be used as energy. During your course of treatment, we recommend that you follow a healthy lifestyle nutrition plan in order to facilitate and utilize the released free fatty acids as a source of energy and nutrients for the body. This will ensure the optimization of your program and therefore may improve the results.


Drink at least 2 litres of water a day.

It’s a well-known fact that water consumption contributes and facilitates the fat clearance metabolic pathways. Consuming enough water reduces hunger, increases metabolism and stimulates the circulation.


  • Have lots of vegetables with your meal! Veggies are loaded with fibres, and fibres are great for because it fills you up- for fewer calories. It also helps keep the flow of sugar into your bloodstream slow and steady, so less insulin is released. (Insulin promotes the storage of body fat). Steamed vegetables are the best option as they maintain all the vitamins and nutrients.
  • Swap white bread, pasta and rice for wholegrain versions. Research shows those eating wholegrain lost more fat!
  • Replace red meat with white meat, such as turkey, chicken, and fish. These meats are generally lower in fat.
  • Eat foods rich in calcium such as low-fat yoghurt and milk. Evidence shows that they can help to reduce the amount of fat absorbed from food. Danish researchers have found that those eating medium-high calcium meals had 17%-19% lower levels of fat in their blood than those eating low calcium meals.


  • Do NOT skip meals – this may slow down your metabolism which may affect the rate at which the fat released from the treatment is used.
  • Do NOT eat processed meals such as ready meals as these contain lots of saturated fat, artificial ingredients and salt.
  • Reduce the intake of fatty foods – this includes takeaways such as pizza, burgers, chips, cheese, butter, oil, poultry skin etc.
  • Reduce intake of refined carbohydrates – such as white bread, white pasta and rice and sugar.
  • Avoid sugary snacks and desserts – they are very high in sugar and this is converted into fat!
  • Avoid alcohol – this is very high in sugar as well! Try to avoid alcohol for at least 4 days after treatment, preferably for 1 week. Dry red wine will be the best option since it is the lowest in sugar from most alcoholic drinks.
