Who is the ideal candidate for Sculpsure?

Healthy with Stubborn Problem Areas
Some of our patients have described that they've hit a plateau in the results they're seeing with diet and exercise, and they feel frustrated. Often, there are hormonal, genetic, or aging changes at play, which are causing them to store fat in unflattering locations. For these patients, who live a healthy, active lifestyle, SculpSure is a wonderful solution, because we know once we eliminate these fat cells, they're going to experience a lasting result.
Some doctors have mentioned that ideal patients should have good skin quality. Of course, if you have tight, thick, youthful skin, it is likely your skin will contract nicely in conjunction with the fat loss provided by SculpSure. What if you don't have good skin quality, though? What if child birth, weight loss, or aging has caused some skin laxity? SculpSure would actually be your best choice for non-invasive fat loss in this case. Other non-invasive options, like Zerona, LipoSonix, and CoolSculpt are not good choices for those with loose skin. However, SculpSure is a laser, and we know with warming lasers, there will be some contraction and tightening of the skin.
Ideal Candidate for SculpSure
Ideal candidate for Sculpsure
Having performed the procedure for many months and being one of the first to have the machine in our office, I've found that the best candidates are ones that have 3cm of fat or less on the areas they are concerned with seem to do best and see the most dramatic results. At this point, liposuction will be almost equivalent to this non-invasive procedure and has the added benefit of no recovery process.

The important thing to remember is that Sculpsure is not a weight loss device, rather a body contouring one.
Who is a Candidate for SculpSure?
Motivated, realistic individual who wants reduction in stubborn fat- SculpSure
doctors who use this as an 'easy way' out). Motivated means keep healthy, you do not need to diet, you do not need to increase your cardio.
Sculpture will reduce up to 24% of fat around your abdomen and flank in one 25 minute session, but this takes 6 weeks before you notice results, and 3-4 months for optimal outcomes. Hence the ideal candidate is one who has realistic expectations, and uses SculpSure as a means of decreasing stubborn fat areas. In my opinion, most patients who lead active, healthy lifestyles over the age of 30 will find some 'stubborn areas'- unless you are an elite athlete or genetically blessed.
I have a few devices that I personally can access, including Velashape, Venus Freeze, Coolsculpting, and SculpSure, but personally chose SculpSure because it just works! And most importantly has no downtime. Coolsculping also works well, but the time factor is important for me, plus the potential of 3-4 days downtime did not suit my lifestyle. If you are super busy, SculpSure all the way- only one treatment of 25 minutes.
There are many options for focal fat reduction that are non-invasive, you have to pick which one suits your lifestyle.
All the best

Sculpsure is here!
The ideal patient should have a BMI (Body Mass Index) under 30 and localized areas of fat. The treatment only takes 25 minutes, it is not painful and there is no down time. You could run a marathon 5 minutes after undergoing a treatment if you wanted. It removes, on average 24%, of the subcutaneous fat, and can be repeated if necessary in 6-8 weeks. It is safe and effective.
