SculpSure works to reduce fat noninvasively by disrupting subcutaneous fat cells. The hands-free device features a flexible applicator system to treat multiple anatomical areas of the body. The device, which uses a 1060 nm laser, can treat an anatomical area in approximately 25 minutes, allowing patients to achieve desired results without downtime or surgery.

The technology is expected to be launched in the U.S. in the second half of 2015.
