How does SculpSure differ from TruSculpt?
Doctor Answers 13
Thank you for your question. SculpSure is the most effective in-office treatment to reduce and eliminate stubborn subcutaneous fat in the flanks and tummy regions. It is the only FDA-approved non-invasive laser treatment that can eliminate up to 25% of belly and flank fat. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
SculpSure and TruSculpt both good options
SculpSure is a laser (1064nm diode laser) device that heats the fat under the skin. TruSculpt is a
radiofrequency device that heats up the fat under the skin. Both are effective means of slimming
unwanted stubborn areas of fat. You should discuss your goals with your doctor to find out which
device is best for you. They are slightly different in the way the applicators are applied to skin and you
may prefer one to the other. The best one is the one that you have access to and enjoy having used on
your areas of stubborn fat.

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.

My patients like SculpSure
Thank you for your question. At our practice, we are huge proponents of the SculpSure treatment. It was not the first noninvasive fat removal device to come out but it has the best outcome and our patients have seen great results after it. SculpSure is a hyperthermic laser fat removal system that works by directing laser energy into your treated areas. What I like about the SculpSure is that it heats up the fat cells so that it not only gets rid of them, but also helps promote collagen or elastin production for tighter skin. There is no downtime and patients can return to work or other activities after treatment. With SculpSure, you can treat up to four areas at one time and it only takes about 25 minutes per treatment. Overall, I feel it’s the best noninvasive option in the market. If you’re interested I suggest scheduling a full in-person consultation with a qualified physician to review your treatment area and ensure you are an ideal candidate. Good Luck!
