Most Effective SculpSure Energy Setting
A SculpSure treatment should not be painful. The patient is given a discomfort zone chart that let's the patient communicate what is tolerable to him/her. The applicators can each be adjusted independently as the amount of discomfort may not be the same for all areas being treated.
A mid-level setting as you put it will work just fine and no less than a higher setting as long as it is within the recommended therapeutic energy setting.
I have had happy patients that were treated at the lower range of energy settings and saw satisfactory results.
Shoud be fine
The lower settings can provide more comfort, but are within the therapeutic range.

Thank you for your question.
The SculpSure machine delivers complete treatment even at the lowest setting at .90. The different setting levels ensure maximum comfort for each individual because pain tolerance varies person to person.The setting levels are .90 to 1.4 all of which provide results.
SculpSure settings are adjustable
In this situation, your doctor was correct. As long as you were in Zone 3 or 4, the fat destruction zones, your treatment will be effective.

#Sculpsure/#Body Contouring/ #Hi Definition Procedures
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. No compression garment required.
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.
