How many Sculpsure treatments can you have in area?

Thank you for your SculpSure question!  Our patients will have a complimentary consultation with our board certified plastic surgeons to discuss their areas of concern or their trouble spots.  A patient may require only 1-2 treatments to an area for good results, but depending on the amount of excess fat, one or two additional treatments may be recommended for optimal results.

SculpSure Treatments

Thank you for your question. Most SculpSure patients need between 1-2 treatments of SculpSure. The number of treatments depends on your body type, BMI and the results you want to achieve. For more information, I recommend getting a in person consultation with a board-certified dermatologist.

Multiple SculpSure Treatments

There is no defined limit to how many SculpSure treatments a patient can have on a given area of the body. In my experience, patients will typically notice results after their first treatment, but every patient is different and some require multiple treatment sessions to achieve their aesthetic goal. Sculpture treatments are extremely safe, so there is really no downside to undergoing multiple treatments if that is the patient’s wish. There will be volume reduction proportionately on each treatment.

How Many Sc ulpSure Treatments Can You Have in an Area?

We generally recommend two treatments at six-week intervals which pleases most patients. Selection is important, as slimmer patients will do better. If further treatments are desired, there is no contra-indication to having two more. A six-week interval is recommended between treatments.

Thank you for your question. Many doctors recommend 4-6 SculpSure treatments in an area as the suggested maximum amount. Please keep in mind that the number of SculpSure treatment you receive will be commensurate with your desired results and your improvement during the treatments. Most patients find the results they require within 3 treatments. 6-12 weeks is the typical timeframe for which most patients heal from and experience results with SculpSure.

I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

Best wishes,

How many SculpSure treatments can be done in an area?

This is an important question to address at your consult. While there is not a limit on treatments, you should pick a procedure that will get you to your goals within a reasonable cost. Usually 2 to 3 treatments are needed per area for a 2 to 3 inch fat reduction. If more than 3 treatments per area are needed to have you arrive at your desired goal (more than 3 inch reduction) then a better and cheaper alternative may be in office liposculpting  which can be done in less than 2 hours while you are awake, and only one treatment is needed. Having a consult with the physician to go over your options is key in helping you make the right decision.

SculpSure "Treat To Complete"

There is not a limit to how many SculpSure treatments you can have done to the same area. You can return every 6 weeks until you achieve your desired results.

It is most common for a patient to be treated twice in the same area. However, some patients may need numerous treatments to reach their aesthetic goal.

Best, Dr Faraz

Number of SculpSure Treatments

With SculpSure, there are is no limit to the number of treatments that can be done on any given area - we can treat until you are completely satisfied with the result! Following one treatment, you can expect to see a 25% reduction of fat in the treated area/s. Typically, patients need two treatments in order to reach their desired goal, however this varies based on the amount of fat in an area. Bottom line, if you feel additional treatments are warranted, whether it's two or five, it can be done!

"Treat to Complete"

Our SculpSure motto is "treat to complete".  What does that mean?  It means we use as many applicator heads and as many treatment sessions as needed to obtain the end result.  There is no limit on the number of applicator heads or the number of sessions that a person can undergo.  A treatment plan should be formulated and compared against other treatment options like liposuction, tummy tuck and CoolSculpting.

Good Luck!
