SculpSure® and CoolSculpting® are two of the most popular non-invasive fat removal and body sculpting treatment solutions in the market. In this blog, we’ll discuss the differences between these procedures to help you make an informed selection.
SculpSure®: Laser technology is used in this technique to heat and destroy fat cells in the targeted location. During the treatment, a device with applicators is placed on the skin and emits laser radiation that penetrates the fat layer beneath the skin without hurting the surface.
CoolSculpting®: Cryolipolysis is the process by which CoolSculpting® works. The applicator cools fat cells to freezing temperatures, causing them to crystallize and die. The dead fat cells are then normally eliminated by the body over time.
Both SculpSure® and CoolSculpting® are effective in treating various problem areas. But, the CoolSculpting® treatment is limited by how much fat can be suctioned into the applicators. On the other hand, there is no such limitation with SculpSure® because its applicators are flat. It can treat body areas with any amount of fat.
Comfort and Sensations:
SculpSure®: Many patients report the treatment as a warm, tingling sensation that they handle well. To minimize discomfort, the device cycles between the cooling and heating phases.
CoolSculpting®: As the applicator draws in the targeted area, you may feel an intense cold and a suction-like sensation. Some patients report slight soreness or numbness, which usually goes away after a few minutes.
Duration of Treatment:
SculpSure®: Treatment sessions are typically 25 minutes long, making them short and suitable for individuals with hectic schedules.
CoolSculpting®: Depending on the size and quantity of treatment locations, each session lasts for 45 minutes to an hour.
Results and Recovery:
SculpSure®: Some patients show improvements as soon as six weeks following the treatment, with full results appearing after 12 weeks. SculpSure® has no downtime, allowing you to continue your everyday activities instantly.
CoolSculpting®: CoolSculpting® results take longer to come out, usually after two to three months. CoolSculpting® adverse effects, such as neurogenic pain, severe bruising, and swelling, last for weeks after the fat-freezing treatment.
The treatment cost is an important factor for many individuals looking to see which fat reduction treatment is right for them. The cost for both technologies may vary depending on the location, provider, and treatment area. But on average, SculpSure® treatment is more affordable than CoolSculpting®.
Both treatments provide excellent non-invasive fat reduction and body contouring effectiveness.
