13 Feb SculpSure vs. CoolSculpting: Which is Better?
When researching about the different body contouring procedures available, the decision may become overwhelming. Currently on the market, SculpSure and CoolSculpting are the two major treatments designed to permanently destroy fat cells. While both are popular, it begs the question: which is better?
SculpSure vs. CoolSculpting
Time: For one targeted area, SculpSure body contouring takes 25 minutes, while CoolSculpting takes double the time for the same size area. Not only that, but SculpSure is also designed for efficiency. Although SculpSure has a smaller treatment applicator, it’s not the size that matters. For example, both flanks can be treated in one 25-minute session. Meanwhile, the design of the CoolSculpting requires the technician to treat each flank separately at 50 minutes each. In this case, it would be the difference of a 25-minute SculpSure session vs. a 100-minute session of CoolSculpting.
Pain and Numbness: Clients have frequently noted that CoolSculpting causes soreness in the days following the procedure, akin to soreness felt after a vigorous workout. Not only that, but CoolSculpting uses a suction applicator that will freeze whatever it is applied to, including nerves. This often results in numbness of the treated areas. On the other hand, SculpSure utilizes advanced laser technology that only targets fat cells. Skin, vessels, and nerves are left unaffected, leaving no pain or numbness after the procedure.
Visible Side Effects: Because of CoolSculpting’s suction applicator, patients may see a distinct demarcation on the skin around the treated areas. Its appearance has been compared to a “shark bite”. In contrast, SculpSure’s application head simply sits on top of the skin during treatment and applies no suction. The heat from the laser energy also disperses beyond the applicator, allowing for a more blended appearance between areas that have been treated and the rest of your skin. With that, any visibility of SculpSure treatment will subside quickly.
Downtime: After a treatment with SculpSure, you can get up and carry right on with your day. Zero downtime required! On the contrary, the soreness and numbness that CoolSculpting causes may result in clients needing time to recover before returning to their normal activities.
Which is Better?
In conclusion, SculpSure offers the best results in less time with less negative side effects. For this reason, we can confidently declare SculpSure as the winner to help accomplish your body contouring goals.
