Right now, there are many body contouring treatments on the market. It can be hard to know which option is the best one for you. Two of the most popular ones out there, SculpSure™ and CoolSculpting®, both help you lose unwanted fat. SculpSure™, however, brings with it many benefits that CoolSculpting® just does not have.
How Do These Treatments Work?
Both of these treatments aim to destroy unwanted fat by targeting fat cells. CoolSculpting® does this by freezing them to the point that they crystallize and die. SculpSure™ does this by gently heating up these fat cells until they are destroyed. Fat cells are more susceptible to temperature fluctuations, which is what allows both of these treatments to target them without damaging your skin or other tissues. After each procedure, the body steps in and flushes out the contents of these cells. Both give you gradual results that appear over time.
Where SculpSure™ has the edge over CoolSculpting®, however, is in collagen production. The heat used in this treatment also stimulates your body to begin creating new collagen and elastin fibers, which will help tighten the skin. CoolSculpting® may get rid of the fat, but it does nothing to help your skin remain tight and prevent sagging. This is the biggest reason that SculpSure™ is the better body contouring treatment.
These two treatments do have a lot in common. They both require no downtime afterward. The risk of side effects or complications is also very low with either option. Both of these options can help treat the abdomen, flanks, legs, and back.
Other Ways SculpSure™ Beats CoolSculpting®
For many people, the lack of skin tightening is enough of a reason for them to avoid fat-freezing. If you are still unconvinced, consider the following:
- Treatments are faster: 25 minutes compared to 60 minutes
- Number of applicators: four can be used at one time as compared to one, allowing you to treat more areas at once
- SculpSure™ causes less side effects and bruising than CoolSculpting®
- Thinner people can be treated as Sculpsure lays flat on the skin as compared to Coolsculpting that has to suction the treated area into the applicator to be effective.
These are just a few of the reasons why SculpSure™ has an edge in the body contouring world.
