SculpSure Fat Removal


How SculpSure Works

If you’re looking for a non-invasive way to get rid of stubborn bulges of fat, SculpSureTM may be the perfect solution for you. Dr. Paul J. Frank from 5th Avenue Dermatology Surgery and Laser Center is one of the few physicians in New York City to offer this one of a kind technology. SculpSure is one of the latest and most advanced fat reduction treatments, using laser technology to destroy fat cells in the targeted area by exposing them to very high temperatures. Once the fat cells have died, the body gradually disposes of them, providing noticeable results in just 6 to 12 weeks following treatment.

SculpsSure has four applicators, allowing Dr. Paul J. Frank to treat up to four zones at a time. Once the laser is turned on, it will actively heat the underlying fat for 25 minutes. The temperatures used are high enough to destroy fat cells, but not so hot that they cause pain or damage skin in the treatment area. Most of our New York patients do not report pain during SculpSure treatments. If you experience any discomfort, we will adjust the applicators until you are comfortable.

Once the treatment is done, you can resume normal activities immediately. The only side effect associated with SculpSure is mild tenderness for a day in the treated area. While you won’t notice any immediate change, your body will be busy working to eliminate the dead fat cells. You’ll begin to notice fat loss in the treatment area within 6 weeks and final results should be seen within 12 weeks. In addition to fat loss, the heating process of SculpSure stimulates an increase in collagen production in the skin, increasing lift and firmness in the treated area.

SculpSure Treatment Areas

SculpSure was designed to reduce fat around the abdomen, flanks (“love handles”), and lower back. It can also be used for fat reduction on the buttocks, thighs, and upper arms. SculpSure is gaining popularity among women who want to treat post-pregnancy bulges on their abdomen and return to their more youthful shape.

Ideal Candidates

You may be an ideal candidate for SculpSure if you are close to your ideal weight and cannot get rid of unwanted body fat through diet changes or exercise alone. SculpSure is not a weight loss solution nor should it be used to replace a healthy diet. In addition, patients who have open sores, infections, or scars in the targeted area may not be able to undergo this treatment.

SculpSure vs. CoolSculpting

In some ways, SculpSure is similar to CoolSculpting, another non-invasive fat reduction treatment that Dr. Paul J. Frank offers to his NYC patients. Both treatments work by destroying fat cells so the body can gradually eliminate them. The table below highlights the main differences between these two highly effective treatments.

Collagen production Increased collagen production No change in collagen production

Why choose SculpSure

Sculpsure Device in NYC

Since it’s approval in late 2015, SculpSure has rapidly grown in popularity and is now one of the most requested fat loss treatments among our New York patients. SculpSure can treat twice the amount of treatment area in half the time of CoolSculpting. Due to its overwhelming improvement in fat reduction technology, NYC Dermatologist Dr. Paul J. Frank has replaced CoolSculpting with SculpSure. Here are some of the reasons why our patients love SculpSure:

  • Noticeable results – up to 25% fat loss in the targeted area in less than 12 weeks
  • Provides a natural appearance with smooth contours and no dimpling
  • Treats twice the surface area in half the time
  • No downtime afterwards and no unsightly bruising
  • Comfortable and fast treatment sessions

How many SculpSure treatments will I need?
Many patients require just one treatment session to achieve their desired results. It is safe to undergo additional treatments with SculpSure if further fat reduction is wanted.

Does SculpSure hurt?
Most of our patients do not experience any discomfort or pain during a treatment session. You will feel a warming sensation, but it should not be painful. If you do experience discomfort or pain, we will adjust the treatment until you feel comfortable.

How long will the effects of SculpSure last?
Once fat cells are destroyed, they will not grow back as long as your normal diet and exercise patterns are maintained. This means that the results of SculpSure are permanent, provided you do not gain an excessive amount of weight.
