CoolSculpting Vs. SculpSure

Trying to determine what treatment is right for you? Here is your answer.


Both treatments induce lipolysis which is the destruction and removal of fat cells. However, SculpSure and CoolSculpting use different mechanisms to eliminate those fat cells. CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to freeze fat cells to death. SculpSure uses advanced laser technology to melt fat cells away. Both these methods of fat removal are possible because fat cells are more vulnerable to temperature fluctuations than the surrounding tissue or overlying skin. This means that colder temperatures that do not harm skin or tissue can freeze fat cells. In the same manner, warmer temperatures can safely penetrate the skin to overheat fat cells, causing their destruction.

Both treatments rely on the body’s lymphatic system to expel the damaged fat cells and process them out of the body. (I.e. you urinate it out of your body) This means that results for both treatments appear over the span of 8 to 16 weeks, though individual experiences may vary. Some people notice changes in their body after only 2 weeks! 

SculpSure is the latest technology in non-invasive body contouring. It is the first medical grade body contouring device on the market. As well as its been cleared by the FDA in 2016. Below are some things to concider when making the choice between SculpSure and CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting Cost vs. SculpSureCost: SculpSure gives similar results as CoolSculpting, but at a more affordable price per treatment.


Treatment Areas: SculpSure can treat up to four different treatment areas at one time. In which CoolSculpting can treat only one treat one area at a time. This makes widespread body contouring with CoolSculpting a far more extensive, expensive and time demanding procedure to achieving a total body transformation than with SculpSure.


Treatment Times: In addition to treating more areas at one time, SculpSure’s advanced technology provides shorter treatment times compared to CoolSculpting. With fast, 25-minute treatments, theres a reason SculpSure is nicknamed the “lunch time lipo.”


CoolSculpting Side Effects vs. SculpSure Side Effects: SculpSure doesn’t require suction, unlike CoolSculpting, which uses a vacuum to attach the applicator to the treatment area. Bypassing this suction also reduces many of the side effects connected to CoolSculpting, such as tenderness, redness, bruising, and swelling at the treatment site.


CoolSculpting Pain vs. SculpSure Pain: Non-suction applicators make SculpSure a painless treatment. This differentiates to CoolSculpting which can be painful for many patients who complain about the suction and sensation of extreme cold at the treatment site during the fat freezing procedure.


Downtime and Recovery: CoolSculpting is a more invasive procedure for destroying stubborn fat cells, and therefore requires a longer recovery compared to SculpSure. CoolSculpting side effects can persist for up to 2 weeks following the fat freezing treatment. Where with, SculpSure requires no downtime or recovery and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after their treatment like nothing happened.
