CoolSculpting and SculpSure are leading body contouring treatments that non-invasively reduce fat cells. Patients turn to these popular fat reduction treatments as a safe, non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
Each treatment addresses stubborn fat deposits. These bulges may be found in the belly and love handles, inner and outer thighs, double chin and neck, and other areas that tend to resist diet and exercise.
While both treatments are safe and effective, they use different energy modalities and technologies to eliminate fat cells.
Continue reading to learn the differences between CoolSculpting and SculpSure to determine which method is right for your body.
How Does CoolSculpting and SculpSure Work?
SculpSure and CoolSculpting both reduce unwanted fat cells, but they use different mechanisms to do so.
SculpSure uses laser energy to melt fat cells. Both methods remove fat cells successfully because the cells are more vulnerable to temperature fluctuations than the surrounding skin or tissues.
The colder temperatures of CoolSculpting and the warmer temperatures of SculpSure can eliminate fat cells, but they will not damage or harm the surrounding skin or tissues.
Both treatments depend on the lymphatic system to gather the destroyed fat cells and process them out of the body as a form of waste. Results for both treatments appear over about 8 to 16 weeks. Individual experiences will vary. *
Each treatment provides lasting fat reduction because once the fat cells are gone, they can never regrow.
The Differences Between Sculpsure and CoolSculpting
The FDA cleared SculpSure in 2016. CoolSculpting was cleared in 2010. Therefore, fat freezing has a longer track record.
Treatment Areas: SculpSure treats up to four different treatment areas at one time. CoolSculpting treats one area at a time. This is why comprehensive body contouring with CoolSculpting is a more extensive, expensive, and time-demanding process.
Treatment Times: Sculpsure’s advanced technology provides shorter treatment times. At only 25-minute treatments, it is a bit shorter than CoolSculpting’s 35-minute treatment time.
Side Effects: SculpSure uses a flat applicator that does not require suction. CoolSculpting applicators use a vacuum mechanism that attaches the applicator to the skin. This suction can cause patients side effects like tenderness, redness, bruising, and swelling at the treatment site.
