SculpSure and CoolSculpting are innovative technologies that are at the forefront of non-invasive body contouring. However, patients are always curious to find out how they compare to each other, and so they often ask – SculpSure vs CoolSculpting: which is best for body contouring.
SculpSure uses laser technology and works by using laser energy to increase body temperature to a level that melts and destroys the fat cells. SculpSure is FDA cleared for use on the back, flanks, abdomen, thighs, and submental fat (fat below the chin).
CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure that utilizes controlled cooling technology to freeze and destroy fat cells. It is FDA approved for reducing fat deposits on the abdomen, flanks, thighs, submental area, and also fortrimming back fat and bra fat.
Which is best for body contouring?
CoolSculpting treatment takes 60 minutes, while SculpSure takes only 25 minutes to perform, and during that time 2 areas can be treated. The shorter procedure time for SculpSure makes it ideal for individuals looking for a fast body contouring solution with minimal downtime.
The CoolSculpting device uses suction to pull the area being treated into the applicator, so this makes itmore suitable for individuals that have pinchable areas of stubborn fat. The intense suction causes side-effects such as bruising, swelling, and pain. SculpSure is a more comfortable treatment, as the applicators are placed on top of the skin, and the laser energy penetrates down and disrupts the fat cells.
