Minimal results after 1 treatment of Sculpsure - should I have a second treatment?

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 second SculpSure treatment be done?

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.

Thank you for your question.
Sculpsure is a noninvasive 1060nm diode laser treatment that removes up to 25% of stubborn fat in the treated area in 25 minutes.It is FDA approved for the abdomen and flanks. It is safe if you get pregnant in the future.
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.
If you notice lumps after (which I've never seen) I would recommend massage. You should also alert your surgeon.
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 our 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.

Thank you for your question. It would be worth a revisit consultation to determine the setting of the machine during your first treatment and how an increased setting in your potential second treatment can benefit your results. More than likely, your second treatment will be able to supplement the first treatment to become closer to your desired result. Please always consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
