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!

Sculpsure - Before & After

What Areas Of The Body Does Sculpture Treat?

FDA approval for the abdomen and flanks has been obtained, but additional areas are being tested. Other areas may be treated as “off-label” while the studies continue. It’s mostly an issue of being able to apply the probes to areas to be treated.

Sculpsure Before And After Photos

When a new device is incorporated into a practice, training is required. We decided to train 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 are 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.

Sculpsure Treatment Overview

Prior to treatment, Dr. Silverman recommends his patients be well-fed and hydrated to get the best resultsand to better tolerate the treatment. The SculpSure procedure only takes 25 minutes. A comparable procedure such as CoolSculpting can take up to 4 hours to complete.

How Often Can I Have Sculpsure Treatments?

Treatments are performed 6 weeks apart but can be further apart depending on the area. If mild swelling begins to form in the targeted area, waiting past 8 weeks may be the best option. It is important to give time for the body to heal and recover.

What Results Can I Excpect With Sculptsure 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 is very fast acting, and some patients notice a difference after the first treatment. You may also feel lighter and smaller as your fat cells begin to shrink and disappear.

See What Our Patients Are Saying!

"I’ve been seeing Dr. Silverman for almost 20 years for various things (my longest doctor relationship!), but have been seeing him for fillers for the last several years. He is amazing with both his work and bedside manner, and is extremely honest – more than once, he has talked me out of doing things that he didn’t think I needed to do and didn’t think I would appreciate the outcome. And, he’s always right – he always makes me look and feel like a million bucks. I can’t say enough good things about him, and just hope he never retires so I can continue with him for the rest of my life!"

How Can I Optimize The Results Of My Sculpsure Treatment?

SculpSure works best for patients who are at or near an ideal body weight with focused areas of excess fat, so some dieting may be appropriate. One way to optimize the results of your Sculpsure treatment is by drinking a lot of water, we recommend up to 6 glasses a day. This helps your lymphatic system flush the dead fat cells out of your body. Going for walks in combination with dieting and staying hydrated is an excellent way to optimize Sculpsure results.

Is The Sculpsure Procedure Painful?

During the SculpSure treatment, you can expect to experience mild to moderate pain which is completely manageable, but if it’s excessive, then adjustments are made in carrying out the treatment. There is an initial four-minute “warming up” period. You will feel an initial burst of cold. As the machine warms up, there may be a sense of heat, tingling, and shooting pains.

After the first four minutes, there is discomfort every 25 to 30 seconds, reaching a peak that is painful for 1 to 2 seconds but then dissipating. The power can be adjusted so that the treatment is strong and effective, yet still tolerable, and very short-lived.

Are Sculpsure Treatments 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.

What Are The Side Effects Of Sculpsure?

Other than the discomfort associated with the treatment itself, there really are no side effects to speak of. One may have some redness or tenderness in the treated area, which can last a couple of days, but this is minimal.
