Sculpsure Laser effectiveness?

Sculpsure is an outstanding, non-invasive fat reduction procedure
Thank you for your question. Yes, SculpSure is the most effective laser on the market for eliminating fat. SculpSure has the capability to eliminate up to 25% of unwanted belly fat that tends to resist diet and exercise. It is the only FDA-approved laser targeting fat loss as well. I suggest that you move forward by consulting with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

Thank you for your question.
Sculpsure is a noninvasive 1060nm diode laser treatment that removes up to 25% of stubborn fat in the treated area in 25 minutes.It is FDA approved for the abdomen and flanks. It is safe if you get pregnant in the future.
The body contouring effects are seen in as quick as six weeks with final results at 12 weeks.
The results are permanent as long as you maintain your weight and health.
The laser targets and destroys the fat cells only which are then naturally removed from the body. Since the laser does not affect the skin or muscle it can be used on all skin colors and there has been no reported incidents of burns when treated by a properly trained physician. It is protective since it alternates heating and cooling.
It has four applicators that can be customized to treat the areas of stubborn fat.
If a second treatment is needed we wait at least six weeks and usually closer to 12.
If you notice lumps after (which I've never seen) I would recommend massage. You should also alert your surgeon.
There is no downtime and you can resume your normal activities right after the treatment. There may be some soreness in the area for a few days for which you can take ibuprofen or tylenol. A cold compress can also be used.
Sculpsure is not used for skin tightening however some of her patients have seen this. If more skin tightening is needed we have combined this with thermi or Ulthera for a complete treatment. Sculpsure is recommended for stubborn areas of fat that are not being lost by diet and exercise. It is not a weight loss treatment
Since I have both a coolsculpting and sculpsure I am working on protocols of utilizing both of these depending upon what areas need to be treated and the response to the treatment.
I have used sculpsure on other areas other than the abdomen with very good results.
I also use a Vectra 3D imaging system to try and show people what their treatment areas could look like.
Since Sculpsure outcomes can be based on technique and experience, please see a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes body contouring to see if Sculpsure or other treatments are available to meet your goals.

Sculpsure vs Coolsculpting vs Velashape and others
Having said all that, there are advantages to Coolsculpting, as this can contour better. ie. if you have tiny areas the mini-coolsculpting applicator is great. I think the best results are tailored according to your areas of concern, and not just the device itself.

Sculpsure and other methods
SculpSure is currently the best method for non invasive fat reduction
Vanquish uses radio-frequency to reduce fat cells, it takes longer and the results are inconsistent. Three or four sessions are needed and it is uncomfortable.
CoolSculpting uses cold to destroy the fat cells. There is a 25% reduction in fat, the sessions last 1 hour and can be painful during and after the treatment. Loose skin is necessary to be "sucked" into the applicator head for treatment. There are frequently" step off zones" where the treatment ends and the unaffected fat starts again.
The newest, most sophisticated and easiest is by far SculpSure.
