If you’re looking for a non-invasive way to reduce stubborn bulges of fat, SculpSureTM may be the perfect solution for you. Dr. Paul J. Frank 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 treat fat cells in the targeted area by exposing them to very high temperatures. Once the fat cells are treated, the body gradually disposes of them, providing noticeable results in just 6 to 12 weeks following treatment.*

How SculpSure Works

SculpSure 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 target 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 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 decrease fat cells. You’ll begin to notice fat reduction in the treatment area within 6 weeks and final results should be seen within 12 weeks*. In addition to fat reduction, 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 reduce 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

Dr. Paul J. Frank also offers CoolSculpting, a treatment closely related to SculpSure, to his NYC patients. Both innovative treatments are designed to effectively target and reduce stubborn fat cells for a slimmer physique. Either treatment is not necessarily better than the other. Different patients may respond better to either device, and they can be used in conjunction with each other to achieve optimal results. The table below highlights the main differences between these two highly effective treatments.

Why Choose SculpSure

Since it’s approval in late 2015, SculpSure has rapidly grown in popularity and is now one of the most requested fat reduction treatment 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 fat reduction results 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

Little to 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 common 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.
