SculpSure Submental Q & A
What is SculpSure Submental?
Dr. Villarreal now offers SculpSure Submental — the latest addition to the acclaimed SculpSure laser body contouring system — which targets fat in problem areas. SculpSure is an FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure that reduces fat by up to 24% in only two 25-minute treatments.
The word “submental” describes the area below your chin. SculpSure Submental uses a custom applicator specifically designed to target excess fat and tighten skin in this area. This applicator sends laser heat through the layers of your skin, targeting and destroying fat cells.
In the weeks after treatment, your body’s immune system naturally clears out the dead cells, leaving you with a firmer and more contoured chin.

Double chins are notoriously difficult to reduce. If you’ve already tried a few of these solutions to no avail, you’re not alone.
Dr. Villarreal uses SculpSure Submental non-invasive laser contouring to treat double chins. SculpSure Submental is clinically proven to reduce double chins in people who have tried other treatments without success.
What should I expect from a SculpSure Submental treatment?
First, Dr. Villarreal positions a piece of equipment around your head to hold the SculpSure applicator in place under your chin. When he turns the laser on, it produces a cooling sensation to keep you comfortable while the laser warms your fat tissue.
SculpSure Submental is a painless procedure that lasts only 25 minutes. Although you may see results about six weeks after your first treatment, most people require two treatments spaced about six weeks apart. You should see the best results about 12 weeks after treatment.
This procedure is entirely non-invasive and requires no downtime for recovery. Side effects are mild and transitory, but you may experience some redness and swelling that lasts a few hours to days.
