Body sculpting is more popular today than it was 10 years ago. This is because in recent years, many products have come to market that allow body contouring and body sculpting without the need for surgical procedures like liposuction. This has been a game changer, especially for individuals who desperately want to get rid of unwanted fat in their midsection, but are not ready to submit themselves to a surgical procedure to accomplish this goal. Two of the most popular procedures on the market today are CoolSculpting® and SculpSure®. When it comes down to SculpSure® vs CoolSculpting®, while the two procedures are designed to remove unwanted fat in a non-surgical way, both procedures use different tactics, and SculpSure® is a step above CoolSculpting® for several reasons.
As its name implies, CoolSculpting® uses controlled cooling to destroy fat cells. SculpSure®, on the other hand, uses carefully controlled heat to liquefy unwanted fat. In time, your body will safely destroy the fat and remove it through your natural waste removal process.
The CoolSculpting® procedure takes approximately one hour. During the treatment, the tissue is sucked and pulled with the goal of freezing the fat cells. This procedure is known to cause some discomfort due to the suction and other factors.
SculpSure® is a procedure that only takes 25 minutes. It is performed in the comfort of our office in La Jolla. Multiple parts of your body can be treated at the same time, and your skin is kept cool while the laser energy treats your fat cells. As such, no downtime is involved. In fact, you are able to get right back to work or your other activities once the procedure is done.
Regarding SculpSure® vs CoolSculpting®, SculpSure® wins the side-by-side comparison. The procedure takes less than half the time of CoolSculpting®. There is no tugging, pulling or numbness once the procedure is complete. Patients do not usually complain of discomfort with this treatment.
The SculpSure® treatment is overall very well-tolerated. For this reason and many others, the best bet for non-surgical body contouring is the SculpSure® procedure. When it comes down to SculpSure® vs CoolSculpting®, there’s really no competition.
