SculpSure, the new shape of body contouring
SculpSure Body Sculpting is a breakthrough in light-based body contouring designed to reduce stubborn fat in problem areas such as the abdomen and love handles, helping you achieve a slimmer and natural-looking appearance without surgery or downtime.
Even with diet and exercise, most people have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose. SculpSure Body Sculpting technology is able to target and destroy these fat cells in just 25 minutes without affecting the skin’s surface. Over time, these damaged fat cells are naturally absorbed and removed from the body, with results seen as quickly as six weeks, and optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks. There is no recovery time following treatment, so you can resume your daily activities immediately.
Which Should I Choose? SculpSure or CoolSculpting
SculpSure is a laser the creates heat to destroy fat cells. CoolSculpting uses cold (freezing) to destroy the fat. A SculpSure treatment takes about 25 minutes without anesthesia, minimal to no discomfort and no down time or post treatment massage. CoolSculpting takes an hour or more, hurts, and leaves a lump (from sucking the skin and fat into the applicator) that has to be massaged away after the treatment. Both are successful at destroying fat cells
Overall, SculpSure and CoolSculpting produce similar results, up to a 24% and 22% reduction in fat, respectively. Neither of these treatments is intended to be for weight loss. The fat these procedures target best is light and fluffy, which means you should see a change in volume or circumference, but it doesn’t tend to weigh enough to amount to a large change on the scale.
The advantage with SculpSure is the variety of application zones (CoolSculpting is somewhat limited by its hand pieces’ ability to fit various body types), comfort of procedure, and length of procedure time. In our experience, the practical nature of the hand pieces helps to ensure a more predictable result with SculpSure.
Both procedures are often repeated in monthly intervals to see a more dramatic results. Up to 24% means you might not see a big enough difference to feel satisfied with a single round. By the second round, thanks to the magic of compound math, you could see up to 45% reduction in fat, which would certainly be very noticeable.
SculpSure newer 1060nm laser technology offers several advantages over CoolSculpting in performance, time, and reduced risk of complications.
Six Good Reasons to choose SculpSure over CoolSculpting:
One: SculpSure Can Treat Multiple Areas in One Treatment
SculpSure can treat multiple areas at the same time (up to 4 areas) in 25 minutes. Whereas, CoolSculpting can only target one area per treatment in 60 minutes.
Two: SculpSure Cuts Treatment Time is Less than Half
Your SculpSure treatment only takes 25 minutes per area compared to CoolSculpting which takes 1 hour per area.
Three: SculpSure Does Not Use Uncomfortable Suction
The applicators used in CoolSculpting require “pinchable” fat that is large enough to be pulled and sucked up into the applicator for treatment. First, this can be uncomfortable but more importantly if your problem area is not big enough to get pulled in the applicator this area cannot be treated by CoolSculpting.SculpSure ensures comfort by utilizing flat applicators that do not use a suction method. This also allows SculpSure to treat areas that CoolSculpting cannot because it is not necessary to fill up an applicator of fat. The technology that SculpSure employs can treat even the smallest amount of stubborn fat.
Four: No Lingering Pain, Numbing or Bruising
Many CoolSculpting patients have reported numbness, pain and bruising that can last for weeks post treatment. Also, research is now revealing that CoolSculpting can cause more severe complications such as delayed onset pain and nerve damage. Delayed onset pain typically occurs a few days post CoolSculpting treatment and causes neuropathic symptoms such as stabbing, burning, and shooting pain within the treatment areas that is unresponsive to medications. To date, SculpSure patients have not reported pain or discomfort following treatment.
Five: Advanced Laser Technology is Safer than Freezing
CoolSculpting uses a process called Cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells. The treated areas are exposed to extreme cold. This method can cause long term nerve damage and pain. SculpSure utilizes laser technology to heat the fat cells to release them from the tissue to be naturally eliminated by the body. The treatment can be described as a soothing, warming sensation that does not pose any threats to the tissue or nerves.
Six: SculpSure has a Lower Cost & Increased Efficiency
The fact that SculpSure can treat 4 areas at one time in 25 minutes and CoolSculpting can only treat one area an hour, SculpSure saves over 50% of your time. Although, you can repeat SculpSure treatments on the same area after 6 weeks, SculpSure has the ability to reach optimal results in just one treatment. It is common for CoolSculpting patients to require two or more treatments to achieve their desired result.

A: Patients may start to see results as early as 6 weeks following treatment as the body begins to evacuate the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks
Q: How long will results last?
A: Treated fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate.
Q: How long before I can resume normal activities?
A: There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately.
Q: What is the difference between fat loss and weight loss?
A: The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remain constant throughout adult life. As we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller but do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas. After the SculpSure treatment, the fat cells are permanently destroyed and will not return.
