Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX) announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted an expanded FDA 510(k) clearance for Cynosure’s non-invasive body contouring product, SculpSure®. The state-of-the-art body contouring laser treatment is now cleared to treat a double chin (also known as the submental area), marking the product’s sixth cleared body treatment area. SculpSure® is also cleared to treat the abdomen, love handles (flanks), back, and inner and outer thighs.

“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.”
