SculpSure® vs. CoolSculpting®

Despite dedicated dieting and exercising are you still unable to rid yourself of unwanted fat? Would you like a quick and simple end to stubborn fat deposits? There are options to get a handle on these problems, and two of the most popular treatments are SculpSure® and CoolSculpting®. Let us share with you some of the differences and similarities between the two treatments and why we at Core Plastic Surgery feel that SculpSure® is superior to CoolSculpting®.

The Differences Between SculpSure® and CoolSculpting®

While SculpSure® and CoolSculpting® are both FDA approved non-invasive treatments to reduce fat in targeted areas by up to 24 percent, the similarities end there.

  • Length of Treatment: SculpSure® sessions last just 25 minutes from start to finish, a veritable lunchtime treatment when compared with CoolSculpting®, where sessions can last 60 minutes or longer.
  • Downtime: After your SculpSure® treatment you’ll be able to return to normal activities immediately. In the days following a CoolSculpting® treatment you are required to massage the targeted areas and can experience swelling and bruising, which may keep you from performing some of your daily tasks.
  • Discomfort: SculpSure® is a laser energy that targets only fat cells. CoolSculpting® is a suction applicator, which means everything that gets “sucked in” is frozen, even nerves.
  • Technique: As the names indicates, CoolSculpting® freezes fat. SculpSure® heats the fat cells to naturally release them from your body.

At Core Plastic Surgery we feel that SculpSure® is a superior treatment option to CoolSculpting® and is the ideal option for patients who aren’t interested in a surgical intervention. In just one 25-minute SculpSure® treatment you can see a reduction in fat by up to 24 percent. The lack of downtime, coupled with the fast treatments makes SculpSure® the ideal minimally invasive fat reduction treatment.
