Short answer: Yes
Who can perform SculpSure
Hi Nkp205 -
This is a great question. The qualifications of who can perform SculpSure varies by state. However, during your consultation - be sure to ask who will be performing the procedure. Do not be shy about asking for credentials and if there is a medical professional available for any concerns you have. I had an NP perform my first SculpSure treatment and felt very comfortable. However, in my clinic - I personally do them all.
Trust your doctors opinion
Thank you for your question. If the doctor is putting their trust in the person performing your Sculpsure treatment, I would trust your doctor. Cynosure providers multiple trainings to professionals who will perform the procedures. The risks of performing Sculpsure incorrectly would be the placement of the applicators. During your treatment the provider raises your levels depending on the sensitivity of the patient. If you were feeling the constant heating and cooling throughout the treatment and the PACs were placed on the area of your concern, then you have nothing to worry about. Each state is different as to what services can be performed. Hope this helps. Dr Faraz

Who may perform SculpSure
Thanks for your question. Yes, an esthetician may perform SculpSure so long as they are trained. Should you be uncomfortable with that, you can always express your concerns to the board certified dermatologist of your choice. Best, Dr. Katz
The answer to your question can vary based on the geographical locations of doctors in different countries or states. It's best to always have your consultation with a physician who can perform a body assessment for you to ensure that you are in fact a suitable candidate for the procedure and then use his/her discretion on whether or not you require supervision during your SculpSure treatment.
Risks associated with SculpSure are minimal, one of the main concerns would be the risk of burning of the surface of the skin caused by improper contact between the applicators onto the skin during your treatment.
It is best to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who is experienced in non-invasive body contouring procedures to ensure you end up with pleasant results.
Yes the esthetician can do the treatment
i would insist on seeing the plastic surgeon for the consult so that he can determine which is the best treatment for you. As a PS i can offer Sculpsure, Smartlipo and a Tummy tuck. if you just go to a spa, then you may not be getting the ideal treatment for you.

Thank you for your question. Typically, the surgeon will always give the consultation to best understand the patient's needs. An aesthetician is allowed to perform SculpSure as long as they are trained by the company. The surgeon and aesthetician will work together to determine the correct setting levels and you will be monitored by a surgeon the entire time of your procedure.
Because SculpSure is non-invasive and non-surgical, risk are practically non-existent for good candidates. There are no risks of skin discoloration, bleeding, or other complications. The only side effect is a little soreness post-treatment.
I suggest that you next consult in person with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Who Can Perform SculpSure?
Your question is extremely important. It is important to have a certified person perform your treatment who has been trained well and has experience. First, every state has their own regulations. I would check with you state medical board to determine the appropriate qualifications. In my office, I always see the patient first and assess whether they are a candidate for this procedure. The nurse(RN) will then perform this 25 minute procedure.
