SculpSure is our newest and very exciting device at Dignity Medical Aesthetics. This body contouring device uses a specific wavelength of laser to permanently kill fat cells. It is one of only two devices in the United States that have been FDA approved for Lipolysis-, permanent fat cell destruction. Since we love that idea, we set out to research the two options and SculpSure prevailed in our opinion. This is because it is effective (up to 24% reduction of fat cells in spot treated areas), yet has fewer side effects than its cold competition. It also allows us to arrange the treatment pads specifically to the problem areas of each individual. No cookie cutter approach here!
Typical patients are those with a BMI lower than 30 that have areas that just don’t seem to resolve with diet and exercise. This device was tested using actual patient’s abdominal fat and treating one side, then waiting for full completion of 3 months. Then the area was removed during a tummy tuck and in each case, the treated side showed fat cell reduction. Real patients with real results.
Results can vary, which is true for all medical treatments. Very lean people and very heavy people are not the best candidates. It works best on average weight patients with areas needing spot treatments. Typically patients prefer 2 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart per area.
Amazingly, the treatment has minimal discomfort. The first few minutes bother people the most with a sensation of hot then cold. After adjustments are made to the settings, most people read, talk on their phone, watch a video, etc throughout the balance of the 25-minute treatment. No stretching skin into the device or painful massage afterwards. No numbing medication needed. In fact, patients can go back to everyday life immediately after the treatment.
Each of our patients so far have had specific placement of their treatment pads that have varied. It is FDA approved for the abdomen and flanks, and we are also using it for inner and outer thighs, fat above the knees, bra fat and fat on the back of arms (which is a bit harder to treat).
