It’s not uncommon for women and men to have certain areas of fat that won’t budge, no matter how many SoulCycle or Barry’s Bootcamp classes they do.
Fortunately, non-invasive body contouring treatments, like CoolSculpting and SculpSure, offer patients a way to target diet and exercise resistant fat and improve the way that the look and feel in their clothes.
However, it can be difficult to know which of these procedures will best meet your needs and goals. Some patients may even wonder: Does CoolSculpting really work? Why should I consider SculpSure? Which treatment produces better results?
Continue reading as we answer these questions and explain what patients can expect from CoolSculpting and SculpSure.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure designed to eliminate localized fat deposits through a process known as cryolipolysis.
During the treatment, fatty tissue is suctioned into an applicator, which freezes and destroys fat cells. The fat cell remnants then go through a detoxification process and are gradually cleared from the body.
What Is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a non-surgical treatment that uses laser energy to heat and destroy stubborn fat bulges.
It also has the capacity to stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin in order to tighten skin in the treatment area.
Therefore, SculpSure offers patients fat reduction and toning within one procedure.
Does CoolSculpting Really Work?
Patients often ask: Does CoolSculpting really work? The answer is that the treatment is effective in reducing fat for the right candidate.
More specifically, fat in the trouble areas must be pinchable and fit into one of CoolSculpting’s applicators to work.
What’s more, some women and men find that the applicators produce an uncomfortable tugging sensation and also increase the possibility of bruising.
Additionally, in order to achieve optimal results, patients often need multiple treatment cycles for a single area. At 35-60 minutes per cycle, CoolSculpting can end up being costly and time consuming, with variable results.
Why SculpSure May Be a Better Option for You
In comparison, SculpSure can treat multiple areas at once and gently rests on the treatment area, without pulling or tugging.
All treatments take just 25-minutes and are able to eliminate up to 25 percent of fat and tighten skin.
What’s more, patients typically require only one-or-two SculpSure sessions to achieve a slimmer and more contoured physique.
