What is SculpSure Fat Reduction Technology?
SculpSureTM is the new, FDA-approved, non-invasive way to get rid of unwanted body fat. This revolutionary procedure is now available to patients of Dr. Hooman Khorasani at Mount Sinai’s E 85th st Skin and Laser Center in Manhattan. In just 25 minutes, SculpSure can significantly improve body contours. This laser employs a state-of-the-art laser technology to eliminate fat cells in stubborn areas that may not be improved with diet and exercise alone. The fat targeted by the laser is destroyed gradually and naturally removed by normal bodily processes over the next several weeks. Patients can start to see results in as little as 6 to 12 weeks and continue to see benefits for many more months.
25 minutes is all it takes for Dr. Khorasani to treat multiple zones of fat at the same time via four distinct applicators. This breakthrough technology is able to destroy fat cells without causing damage to the skin overlying the treatment zone. The entire process is fairly painless and those who experience any discomfort can have the settings reduced to accommodate their needs and tolerability.
Although some may experience mild tenderness after treatment, there is no need to change your daily activities and there is no downtime (often just mild soreness and slight swelling may be noted the first week after treatment). Over the subsequent months, patients begin a remarkable transformation as there fat melts away while their skin is simultaneously rejuvenated via new collagen formation that is also stimulated by the lasers.
Is SculpSure right for me?
Ideal candidates for SculpSure have been unable to lose that last bit of body fat despite adequate diet and exercise. They are otherwise fit and close to their ideal body weight and understand that Sculpsure is intended for non-invasive body sculpting, not weightloss. For optimal results the treatment may be repeated in 6 weeks.
Where can SculpSure target fat the best?
SculpSure is best at targeting fat around the abdomen, flanks, outer and inner thighs. However, it may also reduce unwanted fat from the buttocks, and upper arms. Current FDA approval is for abdomen and flanks only but the laser may be used off-label in other areas. In its current form it may not be used for the neck. Come into our office for your consultation and we will design a plan to best suit your goals.

SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring system for the reduction of stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen and love handles. The 25 minute procedure destroys up to 24%* of treated fat cells without surgery. SculpSure is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise. Most patients see results with as little as one treatment. However, you may wish to have additional treatments based on your desired results. Most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well-
tolerated.* Results may become visible as early as 6 weeks following treatment as the body begins to evacuate the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks.
Treated fat cells are permanently destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate. There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately. The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout adult life. After the SculpSure treatment, the destroyed fat cells will never return. However, as we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller, but typically do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas.
