SculpSure™ (Laser Lipolysis)
Our newest laser fat reduction system, SculpSure by Cynosure®, is the first hyperthermic laser treatment in the world that can help reduce pockets of stubborn fat without the cost or risks of surgery. Dr. Evan Sorokin, a plastic surgeon in Cherry Hill, NJ, uses the laser lipolysis system SculpSure to sculpt, tone, and smooth the contours of the body without the cost or risks of surgery. While patients should not expect to see the same results that they would with surgical liposuction, SculpSure uses faster, noninvasive technology to reduce targeted fat cells by up to 24%.
During/After The Procedure
SculpSure laser lipolysis is performed by Dr. Sorokin, and unlike Coolsculpting™ which requires multiple treatments and is often described by patients as uncomfortable, SculpSure is one treatment with very minimal discomfort. During 1 session, patients can have up to 4 areas treated in 25 minutes. As the laser system is passed over the body, the energy from the laser reaches fat cells without affecting the skin or other cells. The disrupted fat cells are broken down and will be processed naturally out of the body in about 12 weeks. Patients are able to leave after a brief recovery period to resume their normal activities. Patients should avoid strenuous activity and exercise for at least 2 days after their SculpSure session.
For 1 session of SculpSure the price per applicator is $350. Love handles typically take 2 applicators per side. Thus 4 applicators equal a cost of $1400. To treat the abdomen takes 4 applicators. Thus to treat the abdomen and love handles it would take 8 applicators. It takes 25 minutes for 4 applicators so approximately an hour to both areas. The price of 8 applicators is $2800 but if doing as a package Dr. Sorokin gives a discount to $2500.
Unlike other laser fat reduction systems, SculpSure uses advanced technology to provide results after 1 treatment unlike other systems that would require returning for multiple treatment sessions. SculpSure also includes new Contact CoolingTM to make the procedure more comfortable for the patient. SculpSure is safe to use on all skin types and tones.
SculpSure is the world’s first hyperthermic laser treatment to be cleared by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for nonsurgical fat reduction. This new technology by Cynosure makes laser fat reduction treatment faster, easier, and safer. SculpSure also produces faster results with fewer sessions that will save the patient time and money.
Is SculpSure as Strong as Liposuction?
Absolutely not. Liposuction can remove up to 90% of fat from any given area while SculpSure will remove closer to 20%. The advantage of SculpSure is that it is non-invasive, nearly risk free, and has little to no recovery! We hear advertisements on the radio offering SculpSure and CoolSculpting with “liposuction like results” and frankly this is dishonest and deceptive advertising. Patients are very happy with SculpSure if they are educated in advance about what it can and cannot do.
Will I Have Scars?
One of the many advantages of SculpSure over surgical liposuction is that there is no need for incisions, so there will be no scars. Traditional liposuction, laser-assisted liposuction, and ultrasound-assisted liposuction all require small incisions that do leave scars. SculpSure laser lipolysis passes over the skin with special frequencies that only affect the fat cells.
