SculpSure vs. CoolSculpting: What’s the Difference?
Is there an area of your body where the fat won’t melt – no matter how much you diet or how hard you exercise?
It’s incredibly common to have a ‘problem spot’ that won’t budge. Why? Because you don’t have control over how your body metabolizes fat. You can do crunches all day, but that doesn’t mean you’ll burn belly fat – no matter what those fitness gimmicks tell you.
There’s a fix, and it doesn’t happen in the gym. Non-invasive body contouring can reduce fat in those problem areas without surgery. There are two popular types: Sculpsure and CoolSculpting. But what’s the difference between Sculpsure and CoolSculpting?
Keep reading to learn how these treatments could give you the body you’ve worked hard for.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the trademark name for a procedure called cryolipolysis. It’s a non-invasive (no surgery) medical procedure that targets those pesky fat cells that won’t budge with diet and exercise. How does it work? Your clinician freezes the fat to kill the fat cells and make it disappear. Your body then metabolizes those frozen, dead cells and excretes them through the liver. You can use CoolSculpting on the Under chin area, Jawline, thigh, Abdomen, Flank, Upper arms, and Bra bulges. It does not mean we can treat all these areas in one session. We usually provide a full consultation and plans to achieve optimum results.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure differs from CoolSculpting because it uses a laser to target your fat through lipolysis. The heat from the lasers kills the fat cells, and your body gets rid of them via your liver, just as it does with CoolSculpting. You can use Sculpsure on your Upper abdomen, Lower abdomen, and Flanks. Like with CoolSculpting, it can take six weeks to three months to see the full effects of the treatment. You typically need two Sculpsure treatments to get the full impact. The procedure is also non-invasive and non-surgical, but it differs because it can target multiple areas simultaneously, and single sessions take about 25 minutes.
So, both therapies use a device to kill and dispose of fat cells through your body’s natural waste processes, correct? So, what’s the big deal?
First and foremost, CoolSculpting can be used on a wider range of body parts (and sizes). The CoolSculpting system now includes various handpieces that consider the fact that every human body is unique. Because our bodies have different curves and depths, the CoolSculpting system can be used on more body parts and parts of different shapes, such as rolls.
SculpSure, on the other hand, works on thin layers of fat rather than rolls because it uses flat panels.
The bottom line is that if you only need to target a small, flat area, SculpSure will suffice. CoolScuplting, on the other hand, is the way to go for love handles, saddlebags, and thighs because it can wrap around the area and theoretically target more cells.
Furthermore, some people find SculpSure to be more abrasive. People sensitive to heat may find the lasers uncomfortable because they reach a high temperature to kill the fat. It is safe for your skin, but it may not be pleasant for you. The freezing action of CoolSculpting, on the other hand, is more likely to number your skin. Some people report less pain and discomfort and are less likely to take a pain reliever.
SculpSure and CoolSculpting target areas where people tend to store stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise. But how do you choose between CoolSculpting and Sculpsure?
CoolScupting may be a better option if you have sensitive skin and want to target large areas (that may or may not have rolls). The new tools can wrap around problem areas, making the procedure more versatile.

But, more importantly, which procedure burns the most fat?
At the same time, the answer is both and neither. When the full results are in, clinical studies show that both procedures remove between 22 and 24 percent of the fat in a treatment area. However, without a laboratory full of tests to determine it, the difference between 22 and 24 isn’t obvious.
Furthermore, both procedures’ success differs from person to person. You may be able to see 24 percent, while your friend may only be able to see 18 percent. (Again, you may be unable to tell the difference with your naked eye.)
