Body contouring laser device SculpSure has received CE certification for treating the submental area.
The device, which is already certified to treat the abdomen, love handles, back, and inner and outer thighs, can now place the CE mark on treatments aimed at treating a double chin.
The submental treatment requires practitioners to purchase a laser attachment, which will allow the treatment applicators to fit onto the area.
"The receipt of the CE mark to treat the double chin is an important growth milestone for SculpSure," said Kevin Thornal, divisional president of laser developer and manufacturer Cynosure at Hologic.
He added, "The laser's proven effectiveness rate coupled with the fact that SculpSure is certified to treat patients with a wider body mass index range than our competition in the submental area will provide healthcare professionals with a distinct treatment advantage that can drive demand and widen their patient communities."
SculpSure is available in the UK through Cynosure.
