SculpSure and CoolSculpting are both non-invasive laser procedures that are aimed to destroy undesirable fat cells in parts of the body, such as the belly, love handles, or medial and lateral thighs.
A SculpSure treatment will run for twenty-five minutes, and it will target more than one location at the same time with the use of a series of flat applicators that will be placed on your skin by the aesthetician. Due to the incorporation of cooling plates, these applicators warm the fat cells, which ultimately results in the death of the fat cells. However, the temperature of your skin is maintained at a comfortable level. Your body will, over the course of time, naturally eliminate the deceased fat cells, causing the targeted area to appear slimmer and smoother than it ever has before.
Both SculpSure and CoolSculpting operate by concentrating their energy on the parts of the body that have an overabundance of fat. On the other hand, in contrast to the first approach, which employs heat to kill fat cells, CoolSculpting uses cold. The procedure lasts for around one hour and is totally risk-free because the applicator manages the cooling and administers it in a gentle manner without causing any damage to your skin while it is being done. In addition, the applicators come equipped with sensors that can detect when the temperature of the skin has dropped to an unsafe level, at which time they will automatically turn off.
COOLSCULPTING VS. SCULPSURE: AFFORDABILITY
The difference in price between the 2 methods is typically not particularly significant when it comes to our practice. During your no-cost consultation, we will be pleased to provide an estimate of how much your particular procedure will cost. Take your love handles as an example; let’s suppose they’re around the size of two iPhone 5s, and you want to get rid of them. What can you do? For a single SculpSure treatment that lasts for 25 minutes, you will probably require four panels, with two panels positioned on each side. That would set you back $1,500. The coolsculpting treatment in NY requires the use of two small handpieces, each of which costs $750 to run for one hour (one handpiece is used for each side of the body), for a total investment of $1,500.
Comparing CoolSculpting with SculpSure
Both of these procedures for body contouring have received approval from the FDA and have been demonstrated to be both safe and effective by scientific research. SculpSure evaluations that were published in scientific literature, such as research that was published in Lasers in Science and Medicine, claimed that the procedure resulted in a reduction of fat that was 24 percent greater than the placebo group. In yet another SculpSure study, which was published in the Journal of Dermatological Surgery, the researchers discovered that 96 percent of patients reported having a favorable perspective of their therapy.
Reviews of CoolSculpting that were published in publications that were subjected to peer review are comparable to this. For instance, one research study analyzed more than 500 CoolSculpting patients and stated that “Survey results revealed 73 percent patient satisfaction and a 23 percent reduction in fat layer thickness at three months.” This research study was published in the journal Dermatological Surgery.
Even if laser lipolysis (SculpSure), as well as cryolipolysis (CoolSculpting), appear to be equally effective, it would appear that coolsculpting treatment in NY has more clinical data to back it.
Among the most common forms of non-invasive fat removal, CoolSculpting has been performed more than seven million times to date, making it one of the most common treatments of its kind.
In addition, experts stated the following in a comprehensive scientific review: “At seventy-three percent, the client satisfaction rate is much higher than for other technologies in use for noninvasive lipolysis.”
Time for Rest and Relaxation
When comparing SculpSure with CoolSculpting, the downtime with recovery is practically exactly the same for both procedures.
SculpSure, on the other hand, offers a recovery period of zero, whereas traditional laser lipolysis typically requires a few days of downtime. The CoolSculpting procedure does not require any downtime for recuperation. Numbness is the adverse effect that follows the treatment most frequently mentioned by patients. On the other hand, because of recent advancements in CoolSculpting technology, fewer cases have been reported.
In fact, recuperation after CoolSculpting is so simple that you won’t even need to avoid more invasive procedures like liposuction if you want to get the results you want!
There is no advantage to either treatment because it is very little to no downtime required after receiving either one. Neither one of these treatments calls for sedation or medication.
In both these methods, the outcome is determined by how well the handpiece conforms to the user’s anatomy. The coolsculpting treatment in NY features a number of various handpieces, each with its own distinct curve and depth, so that it may treat virtually any area of the body. However, due to the round shape of the system, it is most effective for treating rolls of fat. Because the panels used by SculpSure are flat, they are less effective on rolls than they are on persons who have a thin layer of fat that is evenly distributed across their bodies.
