Post SculpSure Treatment
Some patients may experience temporary redness, tenderness, swelling, and tissue firmness from SculpSure treatments on the targeted sites. Tenderness may last up to 2 weeks. Patients are encouraged to gently massage the area twice a day for 5 to 10 minutes and are able to use a cold compress and/or acetaminophen to help relieve any discomfort. Physical activity with proper hydration helps mobilize fat via the lymphatic system, which promotes the elimination process of the dead fat cells.
If you can, wait about two weeks to see if any of your symptoms subside, or go to your performing practitioner for an in-person examination of your SculpSure sites if you are still concerned.

Thank you for your question.
Since there has been a change in your post op course, I would recommend that you contact your physician so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

Unsustainable pain after sculpture treatment
I'm surprised on seeing multiple complains on maintained pain after sculpture. After having done it to my self, I can testify that the treatment should not be painful. tenderness at some points should be bearable, and post treatment tingling is not painful at all.
Finally, make sure that your doctor is aware of your process. He should be able to guide you best in your care.
Wishing you the best in your journey
Redness After SculpSure
Pain after SculpSure is very unusual
Not normal- revisit your SculpSure specialist.
This redness is 3 days after the treatment and may represent pannicullitis, ie. inflammation of the fat. Ideally your specialist should take a biopsy to confirm, and based upon clinical examination and history start on your steroids.
I hope Cynosure is reading this- this treatment should be performed by Board Certified Specialist only- because performing the treatment is easy, sorting out the complications needs training and thought!
Please see a Board certified specialist, and have this adverse reaction reported. Machine should be check for calibrations. I am sure this will settle down.
All the best,
