Sculpsure: Permanent Laser Lipolysis

Non-surgical fat destruction in the past has consisted of a technology that cooled, thereby destroyed fat cells.  Disadvantages of this technology include uneven contouring (i.e. lumpiness).


A newer technology is the use of a hi-tech laser (SCULPSURE) that penetrates the surface of your skin and targets fat cells, thereby destroying them.  These destroyed cells are then slowly removed by the body through the lymphatic system.  This process can take 4-6 weeks.

As SCULPSURE uses laser energy, the fat destruction is evenly distributed and leaves no lumpiness.


Where can SCULPSURE be used?

SCULPSURE can be used for problem areas including inner thighs, back of thighs/buttocks, lower and upper abdomen, flanks, back bra line and back of arms.  The treatment for one area is 25 minutes.  I (Dr. Horton) have received this treatment.  It is uncomfortable as there is tissue destruction.  However, the operator can lower the settings for better comfort.

SCULPSURE has been rigorously studied and is scientifically proven to destroy over 20 percent of fat cells with each treatment.

What is Sculpsure?

Sculpsure is state of the art in body contouring using laser energy to melt fat cells. The treatment consists of applying frames just larger than the size of a credit card to the area that is being treated.

What is Sculptra?

SCULPTRA (poly-l-lactic acid) was FDA indicated for facial aesthetics in 2009. SCULPTRA is a product that is injected into facial areas including cheeks, temples, jaw line, and nasolabial folds (the vertical lines above, around, and just below mouth).

Dermal Fillers vs. Midface Lifters

Dermal fillers and midface lifters are injectable products that are composed of a naturally occurring substance the body produces, hyaluronic acid (HA).  While fillers are injected just under the skin, lifters are injected deeper, adjacent to bone.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a clear fluid that is indicated for injection into upper neck to treat excessive fat (double chin) for permanent results.  Kybella  is clinically proven and FDA indicated to permanently destroy fat cells.
