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.

No specific comparison
Few doctors have all three devices.
In the FDA studies Coolsculpting and Sculpsure had similar amounts of fat that disappeared, so the two are comparable.
Best to keep studying Realself about the techniques and visit some doctors.

SculpSure for the thighs
Thank you for your question. At my practice we like the SculpSure procedure the best for removing fat non-invasively. Our patients have had great results with the inner and outer thigh area. Each area must have an approved amount of fat deposit which is reviewed by the doctor that you consult with. Make sure to research one that is well versed on the SculpSure procedure. Good luck!
Non invasive lipolysis of thigh
Expect around 25% fat reduction with each after
one treatment. SculpSure is off label for the thighs but does not produce shelving deformity which can be seen with coolsculpt. Best to get evaluated by a board certified plastic surgeon for all your options including liposuction.
Sculpsure vs Coolsculpting vs liposuction
I have Velashape, Coolsculpting, and SculpSure, they all work to some degree, some more predicable than others. If you fit in the Coolsculpting applicator, the chances of this procedure working is over 90%. SculpSure can be used off label, you may need 2 sessions spaced 6-8 weeks apart.
All the best
