Today, Sculpsure is both the most effective and the safest non-invasive fat reduction treatment available. It is FDA-cleared for permanent fat reduction, meaning the FDA declares Sculpsure both safe and effective. There are no known major risks and zero downtime.
Patients typically experience a range of no soreness to mild or moderate soreness for a few days to about a week post treatment. In our over 600 Sculpsure treatments, we have noted a correlation of the amount of fat mass to the amount of soreness, i.e. the more fat, the higher probability of soreness. With this being said, please remember that we are all individuals with different perceptions and experiences.
Sculpsure has not been FDA cleared as a treatment for skin tightening but we know that the heating of collagen produces skin tightening. It seems likely the heat produced by the Sculpsure laser produces the same effect. With more than 600 treatments logged, we have seen no increase in skin laxity after the treatment. Many of our patients have reported a skin tightening effect after having the Sculpsure treatment.
We do not treat with Scupsure directly over scars but we can treat around scars. The applicators should be carefully selected and strategically placed for optimum treatment; by so doing, it is possible to treat in area with a scar.
