This Fat-Destroying Laser Is Now FDA-Cleared for Use in Three More HUGE Problem Areas

SculpSure, the noninvasive body-contouring treatment used to permanently eliminate stubborn fat cells in the abdomen and flanks or love handles, has just been cleared by the FDA for use on the back and inner and outer thighs. Utilizing a diode laser to permanently destroy fat cells with heat, SculpSure takes only 25 minutes per treatment and has been a patient- and doctor-favorite since its introduction because of its ability to treat multiple problem areas at once. And now with three more problem areas added to the laser’s lineup, SculpSure’s popularity is sure to skyrocket even further.

When it comes to noninvasive contouring treatments, there are a few things to keep in mind before booking your appointment: patients should expect more than one session to see results (if you’re looking for immediate results, the surgical route should be considered); the fat won’t be eliminated immediately after your session—the destroyed fat cells remain in the body until they are naturally eliminated by the lymphatic system; and the number of sessions needed will not only depend on the patient, but also on the area being treated.

"The approval of SculpSure to treat back fat and the inner and outer thighs is a direct response to the growing needs of our consumers, who are looking to achieve a slimmer appearance and enhance the body they work hard to maintain," says Michael Davin, divisional president of Cynosure at Hologic in the brand’s press release. "Cynosure is a leader in medical aesthetics and pioneer in light-based fat reduction, and we expect the addition of three known body problem areas to SculpSure's already advanced, versatile treatment to further drive demand and pave the way for future innovations."

Can you think of better news to break the week before summer hits? We sure can’t.

    You guys should try the truSculpt 3D. Especially if you thought the SculptSure worked. I know they are more than one treatment and the truSculpt 3D is only one!!

    All products go through changes in application protocol - no one should be surprised that this product did, as well. A series of treatments is recommended to all patients - if they're happy after one, they've "saved money." and if they need 2-3, they're aware at the outset. Manage patient expectations and you'll do well with this device.

    I can add my personal experience. I had one treatment on my flanks and two on my lower abs. I was very happy and had noticeable results after one treatment on each area. But since having 2 pregnancies there was a bit more fat on my lower abs... and I wanted that last bit gone, so I did a second treatment on the one area. I am just 12 weeks post second treatment and am excited to feel good in a bikini again.

    We have had the Sculpsure device for a few months. Most of our patients that we have treated we recommend at the initial consult a minimum of 2 treatments. 24% reduction per treatment is realistic, however, an appreciable reduction needs more than one treatment. I have personally undergone the treatment and noticed minimal discomfort. Final effects of the treatment will take up to 12 weeks.

    Good news. Glad to hear reality has set it with this product. They now say it will take more than one treatment to see desired results. When it first came to market they said 24% reduction with a single treatment. Which is it?
