SCULPSURE VS. COOLSCULPTING
(Reasons to Choose SculpSure over CoolSculpting)
Laser Technology at its Finest
CoolSculpting uses a process known as cryolipolysis or targeted cooling to reduce fat cells underneath the skin’s surface. In contrast, SculpSure utilizes laser technology to heat the fat cells, releasing them from tissue so they can be processed naturally by the body. The procedure is non-invasive and usually tolerable for patients, with many likening it to a soothing warming sensation.
Treatment Times Cut in Half
A standard treatment session using CoolSculpting usually takes one hour. SculpSure treatments can take around 25 minutes to complete, possibly cutting your time in the physician’s office by more than half. Both treatments may allow patients to return to regular activities as soon as the procedure is over, minimizing the overall disruption in your daily schedule.
Ability to Treat Multiple Areas in One Session
SculpSure features four different applicator heads, allowing for treatment of four different areas of the body at one time. CoolSculpting can only treat one area at a time. This means if you have more than one area to target, you can cut down your treatment time exponentially by opting for SculpSure over CoolSculpting.
Stimulates Collagen and Elastin Production
There is another benefit of laser technology that is not offered with cryolipolysis. Laser energy successfully stimulates collagen and elastin production to create smoother more supple skin. Skin tightening also occurs, which can leave the treatment area looking much smoother and more natural after SculpSure than CoolSculpting.
The final advantage SculpSure has over CoolSculpting is its ability to possibly achieve desired results in 1-2 treatment sessions with proper diet and exercise. While some patients get similar results with CoolSculpting, most require 2 or 3 treatment sessions to see full fat reduction.* This is another way SculpSure is more efficient, both from a cost and a time perspective.
Non-Invasive Body Contouring in 25 Minutes
Even with diet and exercise, most adults have stubborn areas of fat that seem impossible to treat. Now with SculpSure, you can target these problem areas in just 25 minutes with little-to-no surgery or downtime.
SculpSure is the first FDA-approved laser technology that melts those bothersome areas of fat, helping you achieve the shape that you desire in a non-invasive and non-surgical way. The 25 minute procedure uses light-based technology to greatly reduce fat cells in problem areas such as the abdomen and love handles.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does SculpSure work?
Four customized applicators are placed in a targeted area to administer light-based energy, which treats and reduces fat cells. In the weeks following treatment, your body naturally absorbs and processes treated fat cells, resulting in a slimmer appearance.
What should I expect during the 25-minute treatment?
Most patients feel a warm tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment which is generally well tolerated.
When will I see results?
Many patients can start to see results as early as 4 weeks following treatment as the body begins to process the treated fat cells, with optimal results possibly seen at 12 weeks.
How long will the results last?
Treated fat cells are greatly reduced during the treatment.
How long before I can resume normal activities?
There is the possibility of no downtime with SculpSure, so you can possibly have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately.
