Sculpsure & Vectus

Laser delivery being applied to abdominal area

We are very excited about these two new services that we are offering in our Wyckoff, New Jersey location. We added these two technologies from Cynosure (Sculpsure and Vectus) during the early part of 2019. Dr. Yee and his staff are fully trained with both machines in March and started seeing patients shortly after. 

Essentially, the machines uses FDA approved lasers to direct energy to safely eliminate adipose tissue and hair follicles. In the case of Sculpsure, the adipose tissue (fat cells), the destroyed cells are removed by the body and excreted naturally. It is recommended that patients receive two separate treatments to the same area 6 weeks apart. Most patients will see the maximum change by 12 weeks, or 6 weeks after the second treatment. The very nice benefit of laser body contouring is that the individual's life is not affected at all. One can resume all activities, including exercise, work and leisure, as soon as the treatment is done.

Laser hair removal follows a similar principle. Hair follicles are destroyed and the body eliminates them. However, because there are many immature hair follicles in the skin, these will grow and produce new hair. Therefore several treatments 4-8 weeks apart are necessary. Also, because the laser is directed at a more superficial area, sun exposure 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after treatment should be limited. Sunscreens with a SPF of 35 or above is recommended.

If you have questions, feel free to call for a consultation or send us a message via our website.
