10 Sep SculpSure vs. CoolSculpting: The Battle of the Bulge
It used to be that if you wanted to eliminate those pesky pockets of fat that don’t seem to budge no matter how much you diet and exercise you had to resort to surgical means through liposuction. That’s certainly not the case anymore with more and more non-surgical fat reduction options becoming available. But with so many options on the market, it can make it difficult trying to decide which one is right for you. Two of the most popular non-invasive body contouring methods are SculpSure, available at John Park MD Plastic Surgery, and CoolSculpting. And although they can both produce effective results, they are not created equal. So, let’s take a closer look at the two options.
How Do SculpSure and CoolSculpting Compare?
Method of Treatment: Both SculpSure and CoolSculpting are FDA approved for treating excess fat. SculpSure, however, works by using laser technology to essentially melt the fat cells, whereas, CoolSculpting uses cryoplipolysis to freeze the unwanted fat cells. With both methods, the destroyed fat cells are naturally disposed of via the body’s lymphatic system.
Treatment Time: CoolSculpting can take up to an hour to treat just one area, while SculpSure can treat four areas in 25 minutes – that’s three times more fat in less than half the time.
Patient Comfort: Both treatments are relatively comfortable and don’t require any anesthesia. SculpSure has proven to be preferred by patients, however, in that it uses flat applicators. CoolSculpting uses suction applicators and can often cause a type of freezing pain as well as slight swelling and bruising.
Results: Because SculpSure is able to treat more areas in a single treatment, it’s able to achieve better results in a shorter amount of time. In one and a half to 3 months, SculpSure destroys 24% of targeted fat*, whereas it takes CoolSculpting 2 to 4 months to destroy only 22% of targeted fat*.
Recovery: Neither requires any amount of downtime making them ideal treatment methods for individuals not able to take time off from work for a lengthy recovery period.
