How many Sculpsure treatments can you have in area

SculpSure

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!

There is no definite maximum number of treatments

you can do several treatments spaced 6 weeks apart. however, if you are thinking of doing more than 3-4, it would make sense to me, to do Smartlipo to that area, since it should allow more fat to be removed in one session and should be able to speed up the process. 

however, Sculpsure is extremely safe and if you space them 6 weeks apart, there is unlikely to be any problems.

Number of Sculpsure treatments

There is no limit to the amount of Sculpsure treatments in an area. It depends on the amount of fat reduction that is desired, but most people will get good results with 1-3 treatments. It is recommended to wait at least 6-8 weeks between treatments, but some people may choose to wait 12 weeks, since it takes 12 weeks to get to the final result. Good luck.

Sculpsure in the same area

There is no upper limit on the number of Sculpsure treatments in the same area.  To get the desired result in an area, you many wish to treat several times.  You can retreat the same area after 6 weeks, but you won't see the final result until 12 weeks after the last treatment in that area.

How many, how soon?

The SculpSure cycle ideally involves not treating the dying/dead cells again. The laser penetrates up to 3 cm. into the fat, so once it is thinner by the "up to 24%," the next treatment will the most effective and cheapest (10-12 weeks.) Now, we are so impatient and want to speed up the process, SO, we treat at as early as 6 weeks, but it is not ideal from a cost point of view. Also, remember that this is for external fat, not "visceral" fat on the other side of the abdominal wall (inside the abdominal cavity.)  People will be unhappy if they think their contour is only due to external fat.

Sculpture Treatments--How Many?

The number of SculpSure treatments to an area typically depend on the individual's particular goals.  If there is a significant amount of stubborn fat in that area, we will often plan a staged treatment at the beginning. There is no upper limit to the amount of treatments per area spaced over time. However, we can usually achieve the desired goal without multiple SculpSure treatments. Once the fat cells in the area are injured and gone, you should not get more fat back in the same area
