SculpSure™ Laser

New!!! The SculpSure™ Laser at Medicorium. Finally there is an effective and gentle treatment against persistent fat deposits on thighs, tummy and flanks („love handles“). Only few surgeries in Germany have invested in the new SculpSure™ laser technology. This is the first laser worldwide to reduce unwanted body fat in a non-surgical way and without any side effects requiring a 25 min treatment only. This is also the first hyperthermic laser treatment with FDA approval (US Food and Drug Administration, the world’s strictest approval procedure for medication and medical equipment) which serves to reduce fat and sculpt the body in a non-invasive way. Thus SculpSure™ is a completely new procedure for non-invasive laser lipolysis which is safe and effective.

Technically SculpSure™ is a diode laser to reduce body fat, which focuses its light directly onto the fatty tissue, where it increases the temperature to between 42°C to 47°C and thus attacks the fat cell. The skin is not damaged during this process. In addition to destroying the fat cell the warmth stimulates the collagen and elastin production, resulting in a welcome tightening effect. Up to 25 % of treated fat cells are permanently destroyed using this method. They are broken down by the body after the treatment such that the final result is visible after six to twelve weeks. Depending on the initial findings and desired result the same body part can be treated again after four to six weeks to optimise the end result.

The session generally lasts ca. 25 mins. The state-of-the-art, light-based technology is best suited to patients with a body mass index of 30 and below who would like to shift especially persistent fatty deposits in a non-surgical way. The relatively short treatment time of SculpSure™ is owed to the affinity of the 1060-nm-wave length for adipose tissue and a minimal absorption in the dermis. Four flat shaped SculpSure™ applicators can cover a body area of 24 cm² each and be placed on different areas, thus enabling the treatment of various problem areas in one session. The dermal tissue is not damaged.

A contact cooling ensures the wellbeing of the patient. During the treatment only a change between warm/cold with heat spikes in the warm temperature range can be felt. The effectiveness of the treatment has been proven with clinical multi-centre studies. The treatment results in a fat reduction of up to 25 %. Approval studies showed a 90 % patient satisfaction rating. The treatment is comfortable and can be tolerated well. Over time, the body naturally disposes of the subcutaneously destroyed fat cells. First results are visible after six weeks. The disposal of the destroyed fat cells is completed after 12 weeks and the final result visible.
