FDA says yes to fat-busting laser and doctors are using it

It’s all about the burn.

A high-tech, FDA-approved machine that melts fat with a laser could be the next great tool in the battle of the bulge, experts say. The SculpSure is the first laser treatment used to fight flab and high-end doctors are fired up.

“This is probably going to be the biggest change in treatment in fat reduction in the last decade,” says Dr. Mitchell Chasin, medical director of Reflections Center for Skin and Body in Livingston, N.J. “The last one was laser lipo.”

“This is brand new now,” said Chasin, a cosmetics surgeon for 20 years, who has done about 10 of these procedures and so far sees no downside.

But the machine costs big bucks — around $200,000, Chasin said. “You are not going to see one on every corner.”

At around $1,500, it’s also not cheap — and not covered by insurance.

The procedure is intended for those who do watch their diet and exercise but have stubborn pockets of fat.

The ideal candidate also has good skin tone, Chasin said. It’s not the right procedure for someone with a lot of excess skin.

“This is not for someone morbidly obese and does not want to adjust their lifestyle,” Chasin said. “It is for someone who has a healthy diet and exercise regimen and has reached a plateau, not people using it for an alternative to a healthy lifestyle.”

During the procedure, pads with hoses and wires attached to them are placed on the body for 25 minutes. The pads deliver a specific wavelength of laser energy that work to break down the fat.

“It would be as if you were dieting,” Chasin said. “The fat is broken down and absorbed by the body and patients urinate it out."

There is no recovery period and patients can leave the office and return to work or go to the gym.
