The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted an expanded clearance for Cynosure's SculpSure to treat the back and inner and outer thighs.
The SculpSure treatment is already FDA-cleared for treatment of the abdomen and love handles.
Developed by Cynosure, a division of Hologic, SculpSure utilizes a selective wavelength laser that precisely targets fat cells under the skin. The laser raises the temperature of body fat to disrupt and destroy these cells, which are naturally eliminated over time and do not return. Patients are able to achieve desired results – without downtime or surgery – through customized treatment plans, each lasting only 25 minutes.
