What Is SculpSure?
SculpSure is the first FDA approved laser treatment for non-invasive body contouring of the abdomen, flanks, inner thighs, outer thighs and back.
The SculpSure procedure uses laser technology designed to reduce stubborn body fat in problem areas that may not be responding to typical diet and exercise. Generally, the love handles and abdomen respond extremely well to this treatment.
With this laser treatment you are now able to contour your body in an effective and safe way without the surgery. If you have stubborn fat SculpSure might be the right treatment for you!
What Areas Can Be Treated with SculpSure?
FDA approval for abdomen and flanks has been obtained, but additional areas are being tested. Other areas may be treated “off-label” while the studies continue, and it’s mostly an issue of being able to apply the probes to areas to be treated.
Prior to treatment Dr. Silverman recommends his patients to be well-fed and hydrated to get the best results and to better tolerate the treatment. The SculpSure procedure only takes 25 minutes. A comparable procedure like CoolSculpting can take up to 4 hours to complete.
SculpSure works best for patients who are at or near an ideal bodyweight with focused areas of excess fat, so some dieting may be appropriate. Treatments are performed 6 weeks apart but can be further apart depending on the area.
Is the SculpSure Procedure Painful?
During the SculpSure treatment you can expect to experience minimal pain. The pain is completely manageable, and indeed, if it’s excessive, then adjustments need to be made in carrying out the treatment. There is an initial four minute “warming up” period, where one feels an initial burst of cold, and then as the machine warms up, there may be a sense of heat, tingling, shooting pains, or a variety of other descriptors to illustrate the discomfort.
After the first four minutes, then there is discomfort every 25 – 30 seconds, reaching a peak that is painful for 1 – 2 seconds, and then dissipates. The power can be adjusted so that this should be significant but tolerable, and very short-lived.
SculpSure Before and After
When a new device is incorporated into a practice, training is required. We decided to train on each other so that we can experience what our patients will experience. With that in mind, Dr. Silverman was the first treatment subject, and had his flanks treated with one treatment.
Provided is Dr. Silverman’s pre and post treatment photos and while the results are subtle—he didn’t have much there in the first place. There are visible results with a little less fat in the flank region as compared to pre-treatment.
Results for SculpSure can be seen as early as 6 weeks, but 12 weeks are needed to see the full result of a given treatment.
SculpSure Side Effects
Other than the discomfort associated with the treatment itself, there really are no side-effects to speak off. One may have some redness or tenderness in the treated area, which can last a couple days, but this is minimal.
Is SculpSure Safe?
Yes! SculpSure is FDA approved and patients usually experience very little discomfort or adverse effects. Dr. Silverman was in the gym a couple of hours after his treatment. He only had minor “tenderness” for about a day, and didn’t have to wear any compression garments or alter his daily activities.

“SculpSure, which is one of a handful of contouring treatments, takes 25 minutes per session, and one can lose a belt notch after a treatment. Results can take six weeks to see, which is why Mr. Diaz scheduled sessions for his stomach and flanks in March, and had two additional treatments five weeks before his wedding.”
