What’s the difference: SculpSure vs CoolSculpting

If you want to reduce stubborn body fat without all the painful aspects of surgery, you may be looking into noninvasive methods for body contouring. CoolSculpting and SculpSure are two popular methods. When we talk about nonsurgical, noninvasive procedures we’re talking about procedures that don’t require surgery and the hefty downtime that comes with it. That’s just one of the benefits that comes with procedures like these. 

CoolSculpting and SculpSure: What are they? 

Both of these treatments remove diet and exercise-resistant fat by inducing lipolysis, which is the metabolic process that refers to the destruction and removal of fat cells. They both work to achieve the same result, but their methods for getting there differ. With CoolSculpting, fat cells are frozen and killed. On the other hand, SculpSure uses advanced laser technology to kill fat cells. 

From there, the two methods become similar once again. Why? Because both methods — one using cold temperature and one using laser technology — take advantage of the body’s response to temperature fluctuation in order to meet their goal of reducing fat. This is possible because fat cells are vulnerable to temperature fluctuation unlike the tissue and skin that surround fat. In other words, these procedures kill subcutaneous fat cells while leaving the surrounding skin and tissue unharmed. SculpSure does this with warm temperatures from a laser and CoolSculpting does it with cool temperatures. 

CoolSculpting vs SculpSure: How are they similar? 

Both CoolSculpting and SculpSure are FDA-approved and scientifically proven to be safe and effective fat removal methods for patients looking to reduce diet and exercise-resistant fat. 

Both methods rely on the response of the body’s lymphatic system to gather dead fat cells and remove them from the body as waste. Results occur in about two to four months, but that depends on the patient. This is the same time frame for both SculpSure and CoolSculpting – they take just around the same time to visibly deliver results. Another similarity is that both methods remove fat forever. Once the fat cells are dead and removed from the body, they can’t grow back. 

CoolSculpting vs. SculpSure: How do they differ?

CoolSculpting has a better track record. CoolSculpting was the first noninvasive body contouring method on the market and as such has become the gold standard for it. It’s also the most popularly performed noninvasive body contouring procedure across the world and has been since it was invented in 2010. SculpSure was FDA cleared in 2016 and is a relatively new player in the world of body sculpting technology. Less people have had the procedure done and we overall know less about it. 

Another important point is that, while SculpSure and CoolSculpting are both effective procedures, the clinical data to support CoolSculpting’s efficacy is far greater. CoolSculpting also has higher client satisfaction. 

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting or SculpSure?

You may be a good candidate for either procedure if you:

  • Are in good general health
  • Are near your ideal weight

You might not be a good candidate for either if you:

  • Are pregnant 
  • Are breastfeeding
  • Had surgery recently
  • Taking anticoagulants
  • Have a history of blood clots
  • Have a pacemaker
  • Have a defibrillator
  • Want to lose a large amount of fat

CoolSculpting vs SculpSure: Why CoolSculpting wins
