SculpSure vs. CoolSculpt

Are you confused about the many different treatments available today that claim to remove fat?  It does get overwhelming, especially when companies manipulate their wording specifically to confuse and mislead you!  It gets even more confusing when so many devices claim to have FDA approval for fat reduction.  If you look closely into the fine print, the FDA has only approved them for “the temporary reduction in the appearance of fat”.

I don’t know about you, but I have no interest in spending money on anything either temporary OR that only decreases the appearance of fat.  I want permanent destruction and removal of fat!

Currently there are only 3 ways to permanently destroy and remove fat cells from the body; liposuction, SculpSure and CoolSculpt.

Liposuction has gotten much less popular in recent years and at Skin Deep Laser MD we also prefer non-invasive body contouring.  You can get surgical results without the pain, downtime and risks of surgery, and for less money!  (win win!)

SculpSure and CoolSculpting are the only 2 choices for permanent destruction of fat cells without surgery.  We chose SculpSure over CoolSculpting for several reasons:

1) You can destroy fat cells by freezing them for an hour or heating them for 25 minutes.  Since freezing is non-selective, it freezes the skin and nerves along with the fat.  This process is very painful and  sometimes causes permanent nerve damage and long-term pain.  The SculpSure laser selectively targets your fat cells while keeping the surface skin and nerves cool and safe.  SculpSure is much safer long-term and more comfortable during the treatment!

2) SculpSure is much faster than Cool Sculpting; due to the larger treatment area and shorter treatment time, SculpSure can be from 2-8 times faster.

3) CoolSculpting only treats the fat that is sucked up into its applicator which leaves a “ridge” or “shelf” so that you can always see a mark where the treatment occurred.  SculpSure’s laser energy tapers, feathering it into the neighboring untreated area so that the margins blend and you will never see a ridge at the border of the treated and untreated areas.

4) SculpSure is a laser and works with heat.  When we heat the dermal tissue to 39-41 degrees Celsius, we stimulate collagen production which tightens the skin in the treatment area.

5) Although the SculpSure laser is newer and better technology than Cool Sculpt, it is usually less expensive (depending on where you have it done)

SculpSure is more comfortable, faster, safer and less expensive for our patients.
