Will Sculpsure damage muscle if there isn't enough fat?

SculpSure Is Safe - If Your Provider Is Knowledgeable
The SculpSure applicators sort of bunch your skin/fat up to the laser, and so a doc with proper training will be able to tell if the area is okay to treat. It is correct, though, that fat stores heat and given the blood flow to muscles, it is very unlikely they will be heated to 45C, the temp needed for tissue destruction.
Hope that helps!
Muscle damage with sculpture... is it possible?
No, the 1064 nm laser is specific to fat not muscle. In principle the muscle has hemoglobine due to its rich vascular supply, this fact makes it a safe procedure. The only concern is hernias that may have expose organs with fat.
Finally, make sure that you have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon.

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.
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 - Sculpsure will not damage muscle.
You may feel tightness a day or so after the procedure, this is due to immediate collagen contraction and not muscle contraction (though it feels like it). This is very mild (I have had the procedure myself), and resolves within a day or so. So mild, it didn't stop me from going to the gym and performing my usual activities. (Hence why I chose to do SculpSure over Coolsculpting, even though I have access to both).
All the best
