SculpSure for thighs

That's a great question. Yes, many of our patients treat inner and outer thighs with SculpSure. SculpSure is only FDA approved for abdomen and flanks at this time. The areas of interest are discussed and determined during your consultation. We have great results on all areas of the body.

Thank you for your question!

The FDA actually recently gave 510k clearance for use of SculpSure on inner and outer thighs.  It is very safe and effective.  Our patients have been very pleased with their results.

This is a great choice if you're looking for a fast, safe option that may give you what you want without any concern for scarring  or limiting other options in the future.

Hope this helps!

Is Sculpsure used on inner/outer thighs

Yes Sculpsure can be used on both inner and outer thighs.  Sculpsure can be used on posterior thighs to accentuate glutes. I have seen great results with my patients in these areas. With some skin tightening as well.

That’s a very timely question!  Sculpsure was very recently (June 2017) cleared by the FDA for thighs, but we have been treating thighs since 2015 with great results. Sculpsure is both safe and effective for inner and outer thighs for most patients.

SculpSure is now FDA approved for back, inner and outer thighs!

We received the announcement from Cynosure on June 14,  SculpSure is approved for treating not only abdomen and flanks but now also back, inner and outer thighs.  

The FDA approval means the company has submitted proof of efficacy and safety through clinical trials, and the FDA has reviewed and cleared the treatment and the device.  This is very reassuring to both doctors providing the treatment and discerning patients.  When evaluating your options, check on FDA clearance for the procedure and the machine that is being used.  People tell me they don't like being guinea pigs, and I don't blame them!

We can definitely use SculpSure to treat any part of the thigh that bothers patients.   This area is a common complaint; we do see very good results!

SculpSure is only FDA approved for abdomen and flanks, but with that said the answer is yes you can treat inner and outer thighs it is just considered of label use. The areas of interest in being treated are discussed in the consultation.

SculpSure is FDA approved for abdomen and flanks. That means that the company did extensive research on those areas and submitted those areas for approval.  Doctors know how procedures work and are able to use them in areas that are not "approved" but still are effective. This is called off-label.  In the right hands, it should work on other areas of the body.  We have had best results inner thighs.  Outer thighs are more painful and don't seem to respond as well (lot of muscle).  Arms are not as consistent as far as results.

Great question.  Sculpture can definitely be used for treatment of inner and outer thighs as well as many other areas like under butt, above knee, on the side of the knee, on lower legs, arms, bra rolls, etc.  It's an outstanding laser that can be customized to each body type to deliver great results. Now,  all those areas are considered " off label". Meaning the FDA only did clinical studies on treatment for abdomen and love handles, so they have data available to show and prove its efficacy. In my practice, I treat all of the areas listed above with great results and patient satisfaction.  Please find a SculpSure expert provider in your area in order to gain full benefit of this treatment as results do depend on the treatment design and appropriate settings,, not the machine.  Good luck.
