As you may know, Sculpsure is the latest innovation in non-invasive fat reduction. This means that there are no incisions. The laser energy travels through the skin (it is safe for all skin types) and heats and kills the underlying subcutaneous fat. Cynosure’s studies have shown up to a 24% reduction of fat – though it is important to remember that some people will get more and some will get less.
Generally, Sculpsure will cost $1,500 for a session. However, we are only charging $1,000 because we want to make this is more easily affordable to more people (and yes, we do offer financing).
How Does it Work?
A treatment consists of 4 paddles, which are about the size of a small cell phone. The entire session only takes 25 minutes. You can treat multiple areas, one after another, in the same visit. To explain, you can put 4 paddles along your lower abdomen and after this immediately, place the 4 paddles on the outside of your hips, or the inside of your hips or knees or bra line or love-handles, etc.
One of the best things about this treatment is that there is no downtime associated with it. I have actually treated my own love handles with SculpSure and after each of my two sessions, I immediately went to the gym.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
I tell my patients that they should plan on treating each area twice, with 4-6 weeks between each session, to get the best results. You can certainly do more than two sessions per area, but the minimum you should plan on is two sessions. There are no hidden costs with this treatment, as it does not require any medication or an operating room.
Why You Should Consult with a Plastic Surgeon if Considering SculpSure:
The most important reason to see a plastic surgeon when inquiring about SculpSure is because a plastic surgeon is in the best position to explain whether you will be best served with SculpSure or Smartlipo (laser liposuction) or some type of excisional surgery. It is important to know whether your expectations are realistic for the given procedure, especially given the financial investment you are making. A plastic surgeon can also give you a good sense of the pros and cons of each option to help you make the right choice for you. In my office, your treatment will be carried out by an esthetician specially trained in the art of SculpSure. We will do our very best to make sure that your treatment is as comfortable and specific to your needs and body goals.
