SculpSure vs. CoolSculpting works more or less the same and that is by reducing stubborn fat through non-invasive treatments. However, they also have their share of differences. Let’s get to know more of these below.
Mechanism of Action
CoolSculpting or also known as Cryolipolysis uses controlled cooling to freeze fat, therefore killing it. On the other hand, SculpSure also uses laser applicator, but instead of freezing it, it increases the temperature of the fat cells thereby destructing it.
The cost of SculpSure is more affordable than the CoolSculpting cost. In 2018, the average cost of CoolSculpting ranges from $2000 to $4000 while SculpSure, at that time, was only between $1400 to $1500.
SculpSure can be used to treat four different areas at one time while CoolSculpting can only treat one area at a time, thereby making it a more expensive and time-consuming procedure as compared to SculpSure.
In a normal SculpSure treatment, the patient will only experience minimal to no pain at all. However, CoolSculpting is a different scenario; the patient will complain of pain due to the suction and extreme cold sensation during the Cryolipolysis procedure.
Although both are considered a non-invasive procedure, CoolSculpting is quite more invasive than SculpSure. Thus, it means that it requires a longer recovery time compared to SculpSure’s zero recovery time.
