Body contouring procedures are a great choice for anyone who doesn’t want to go for invasive treatments, but hasn’t managed to get the desired body shape through diet and exercise either. There are numerous treatments to consider, of which CoolSculpting and SculpSure are two most popular choices. Experts often debate on SculpSure vs Coolsculpting, and for your help, we take a look at the pros and cons of both.
CoolSculpting relies on fat freezing, which basically freezes fat cells that are eventually removed from the body naturally. The procedure has been around for years now, and is considered to be safe for most suitable candidates. CoolSculpting sessions last for about two hours or less, depending on targeted area being treated, and it takes around four months to see the full effects.
Pros and cons of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is considered safe and has proven to be a good option for body contouring. It can be used to remove fat from stubborn areas, including thighs, arm, and neck. The process can be further enhanced by using two machines, which is called DualSculpting. There is no downtime to CoolSculpting.
On the flip side, there can be mild discomfort during the session, which can be hard to manage for some patients. It can cause mild bloating and is not suited for everyone, such as pregnant women.
Sculpsure is almost the opposite of CoolSculpting, as it relies on laser heat to destroy fat cells under the skin but doesn’t harm other cells and tissues. Unlike CoolSculpting, Sculpsure may cause more discomfort, but again, this is a more ideal body contouring procedure for some patients. Sculpsure take a lot less time, with one session lasting for about 25 minutes, while the results are visible quicker.
Pros and cons of Sculpsure
Limited time for each session is the first advantage of Sculpsure, and there is no downtime. Most people can consider the procedure, except for pregnant women, and the entire treatment of Sculpsure can be customized. You can also focus on non-pinchable fat with the procedure. It also boosts the production of collagen in the skin.
There can be mild bruising with Sculpsure, which can be considered as a disadvantage, and you may have to stay away from sun exposure for at least a week, both before and after a session.
Both SculpSure and CoolSculpting are FDA-approved procedures. Talk to a med spa expert to know more.
