SculpSure: The Easiest Way to Remove Unwanted Fat is With a Laser

No Surgery. No Downtime. Lose all your Unwanted fat with the SculpSure laser. This treatment method is done by laser and the results can be seen a few weeks after the treatment.

Body contouring fat removal is done by heating up and increasing the temperature of the fat cells to destroy them. Sculpsure can be used to target fat cells on the abdomen and midsection of the body. The benefits are that this is a non-invasive, non-surgical laser treatment to eliminate unwanted fat while defining and contouring that treated area of the body.

Patients can opt for a single treatment session or multiple depending on the extent of the results they seek and their individual body type. The results are permanent. To compare Sculpsure to liposuction fat removal via surgery, click here.

How We Treat Keloid, Acne and Hypertrophic Scars

Undesirable and uncomfortable scars can be removed. Hypertrophic scars are unsightly, flat and cosmetically not pretty which is why many of our patients seek to remove them. In the case of hypertrophic scars which are caused by excessive collagen production when the skin is healing after a trauma or injury, the scar is raised and wide. Hypertrophic scars can be treated or removed by laser therapy, corticosteroid injections, cryotherapy which freezes the scar tissue, or surgical removal.

Keloid scars occur when the scar tissue grows to excess outside of the skin. Approximately three million patients are affected by keloid scars annually. They are typically raised, itchy, lumpy and flesh colored. These are cosmetically undesirable scars and for that reason alone many patients opt for medical intervention and treatment. Cryosurgery and laser treatment are the recommended procedures to treat keloid scars.
