Why SculpSure Is A Better Alternative To CoolSculpt

Posted on March 17, 2023

SculpSure and CoolSculpt are two popular non-invasive body contouring treatments used to reduce fat in targeted areas of the body. SculpSure uses laser energy to heat and destroy fat cells while CoolSculpt uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate unwanted fat. Both treatments have proven safe and effective in reducing fat without surgery, but there are a few reasons why we prefer SculpSure for our patients.

  1. Shorter Treatment Time

SculpSure treatments typically take just 25 minutes per session, while CoolSculpting treatments can take up to an hour per session. This shorter treatment time makes SculpSure a convenient and efficient option for busy individuals who don’t have the time to dedicate to longer treatments. Additionally, multiple SculpSure treatments can be completed in one session, making it possible to treat multiple body areas in one visit. This increased efficiency can save time and allow for quicker results.

  1. Added Skin Tightening

SculpSure uses heat to melt fat and this applied heat has the added benefit of skin smoothing and skin tightening. Heat energy stimulates collagen and elastin production – two proteins in the skin that give it elasticity and structure for a firm, smooth texture, and glowing complexion. CoolSculpting uses cold technology with the sole purpose of freezing fat cells. For patients with mild skin laxity and those who want a smoother contour, SculpSure is the better option.

  1. Less Discomfort During Treatment

SculpSure treatments are designed to be comfortable and virtually painless. The SculpSure device uses laser energy to target fat cells, causing them to heat up and dissolve over time. The laser energy is delivered through a grid of applicators placed on the skin. The applicators are designed to distribute the heat evenly and prevent discomfort or pain. Patients often describe the sensation as a warm, tingling feeling.

In contrast, CoolSculpting treatments can be uncomfortable and even painful, as they involve freezing the fat cells with a cooling applicator. The cooling process can cause stinging, pinching, and numbness that may last several hours after the treatment. SculpSure’s comfort level makes it a more attractive option for people who want to achieve body contouring without discomfort or pain.

  1. No Downtime

Another reason patients love SculpSure is that there is no downtime! The quick treatment time and lack of recovery means you can receive treatment on your lunch break and immediately get back to your regular schedule with no interruptions. CoolSculpting can cause mild to moderate soreness and bruising that may impact movement and comfortability for a few days.
