SculpSure Receives Clearance From The FDA To Treat Submental Fat

Body Contouring Cynosure


We are proud to announce that SculpSure, the smarter technology for body contouring has been cleared by the FDA to treat submental fat for patients with a BMI up to 43.

This state-of-the-art body contouring laser treatment will give Australians the opportunity to treat their submental fat, also known as a double chin in an easy and effortless manner. Acting as a major source of insecurity for a thousands of people both here in Australia and abroad, submental fat has traditionally been difficult to remove and often virtually impossible to remove without invasive surgery. However, with the help of SculpSure this is no longer the case, making it possible for patients to finally reclaim their confidence.

“Most patients in the 57-person clinical trial received two brief treatments six weeks apart,” said Dr. Lawrence Bass, board certified plastic surgeon and a principal investigator in the SculpSure clinical trials. “The short treatment time, 100% satisfaction rate, and dramatic contour reductions typically seen in the  study patients give SculpSure the edge as the treatment of choice for the submental area.”

Quick and pain-free, SculpSure helps patients achieve a natural-looking, slimmer appearance in a non-invasive manner. Each treatment lasts approximately 25 minutes and requires no surgery or downtime, making it a perfect option for those with a busy schedule.

With up to a 24% reduction in fat in treated areas, SculpSure’s results are both significant and noticeable. This treatment works by utilising innovative laser technology to go beyond the skin’s surface and disrupt fat cells under the skin. Over the course of a few short weeks, the body naturally absorbs and eliminates the fat cells.

“We are encouraged that our chin treatment was proven effective on patients with a body mass index (BMI) up to 43, while our competition in the non-invasive arena is only FDA-cleared to treat patients with a BMI up to 30,” said Kevin Thornal, Divisional President of Cynosure at Hologic. “We are excited to provide our customers with a competitive advantage that can further widen their patient communities.”
