Both CoolSculpting and Hot Sculpting are effective means of getting rid of those stubborn pockets of fat that just don’t seem to go away regardless of how much you exercise or diet. Either option is a great non-invasive alternative to liposuction procedures and both offer long-lasting results.
Both CoolSculpting and Hot Sculpting are effective treatments for removing unwanted and excess fat cells and do so using very similar techniques, only CoolSculpting uses a process to freeze the fat cells in order to essentially destroy them and Hot Sculpting uses heat to do the same thing. CoolSculpting is typically the better option if you are only having one more extensive area of the body being treated at a time, but it is common to experience some bruising and soreness following treatments. Hot Sculpting is able to address multiple areas at the same time and is often the preferred method of removing excess fat cells from the two treatments since it does not cause bruising and only feels as though the area being treated is being gently warmed.
The primary difference between CoolSculpting and SculpSure is the type of technology that is used for lipolysis, which is the process of breaking down fat cells to destroy them to the point where the body will naturally expel it from the body as waste. CoolSculpting uses a method called advanced cryolipolysis to freeze the fat cells in order to destroy them, whereas SculpSure uses laser heat technology to heat up the fat cells as a means to basically melt the cells, leading them to break down as well. CoolSculpting is able to treat a wider variety of areas all over the body but is only able to treat one area at a time. In comparison, SculpSure is not an effective treatment for as many areas on the body but can treat all effective areas at once, often resulting in shorter treatment times.
Both procedures have been shown to provide effective and long-lasting results, but CoolSculpting has been around for a bit longer so it is backed with more clinical data at this time. However, many MedSpas and body contouring specialists are already finding that hot sculpting is offering better results for their patients, providing just a more comfortable experience, allowing for a wider area to be treated at once, and offering beautifully taut, sculpted skin. CoolSculpting is a more effective treatment for those who carry excess stored fat in less common areas of the body such as the ankles, above the knees, underbust rolls, just under the buttocks on the back of the thighs, and several more. Hot sculpting is effective for treating all of the most common areas of the body that hold onto fat a bit more stubbornly including the abdomen, outer and inner thighs, the chin, arms, chest, and love handles.
The benefits of choosing SculpSure for your lipolysis treatment over other options include the ability to have several areas being treated simultaneously, meaning the treatment itself will only ever take less than half an hour to complete, making it a convenient option for the busiest of patients. It is also often considered to be the more comfortable option when compared to CoolSculpting as the process of heating up the fat cells using laser heat energy.
The most common side effects of SculpSure only include temporary redness in the areas that have been treated. CoolSculpting treatments can take a bit longer as each area needs to be treated individually, but this treatment is able to address quite a few more areas of the body than its counterpart. It is also known for being a bit more of an intensive procedure, offering more dramatic results after just one session but is also more likely to cause some minor swelling and bruising to the area that was treated following the procedure.
