Painful SculpSure Treatment at 1.4, Lumps Afterward. Should I Have Another Treatment?
It would seem reasonable to wait until the lumps have entirely resolved before having another treatment. Consider settings that do not cause pain if you do it again. It does not have to cause pain to get a good result.
As far as number of treatments, our standard protocol when there is a fair amount of fat present is two treatments at six week intervals to see optimal results.
Repeat treatments can help
We find that a second treatment greatly improves the end result. I would definitely take your doctor up on their offer!

Should I have a second SculpSure treatment?
Yes, I often recommend two treatments per area,5-6 weeks apart, for optimum results. Best, Dr. Yegiyants
Should second SculpSure treatment be done?
Sculpsure of Thighs
I would definitely recommend a second treatment. Each treatment with sculpsure has a maximal reduction of 22%. Also be sure to drink lots of fluids and be active after the procedure to promote lymphatic absorption of the fat calls that have been killed.
SculpSure protocol is 2 treatments 6 weeks apart
Having lumps is completely normal and temporary. It will take some time for them to go away, but they definitely will. I would encourage you to massage the area. In regards to treating the thigh, I did not have any patient who had a significant improvement after a single treatment on the thigh area. The protocol calls for a minimum of 2 sessions at least 6 weeks apart. You should definitely have the second treatment and then wait 12 weeks for the optimal results to show up. You may even need a third session. You do not need to be so uncomfortable at 1.40 settings, you can definitely go to lower setting. Make sure you do not come on or close your menstrual cycle as your sensitivity is increased. Second time around there is much less discomfort as you already know what to expect. Provided you stayed the same weight. Hope this helps. Best, Dr.Avaliani
SculpSure- Treat To Complete
I would recommend lowering your settings. The inner thigh is very sensitive but you should not be experiencing this much pain. I would absolutely recommend doing a second treatment. In many patients it is treat to complete. Each treatment destroys 24% of the fat cells. A patient with a higher BMI is most likely going to need multiple treatments.
