SculpSure vs. CoolSculpting


SculpSure vs. CoolSculpting

If you’re looking to get rid of stubborn fat in areas on your body that just won’t go away, it doesn’t matter how healthy you eat or how much you work out, this fat will not budge. 

Fortunately, with the marriage of science and aesthetics, a variety of body contouring, fat destroying treatments have hit the market and are helping people feel better and more confident! 

What is Body Contouring? 

In a previous blog, we discussed in detail how body contouring works and a few different options you have to fight the stubborn fat for good! 

In short, body contouring is an umbrella term for non-invasive, non-surgical treatments that use different forms of temperature, energy and thermal-laser technology to help eliminate fat, sculpt and shape the body. 

2 types of body contouring treatments that involve temperature are CoolSculpting and SculpSure. These treatments help eliminate fat by using temperature based technology. However, these treatments are extremely different from one another. 

So what’s the difference? Keep reading to find out!


Like the name says, CoolSculpting uses cryotherapy to freeze fat cells on the areas of concern. It is FDA approved and can reduce body fat of the treated area up to 20-25% over time. The controlled freezing weakens the fat cells until they die and are expelled through the body’s lymphatic system.

Possible treatment areas include: 

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Back bulge and bra area
  • Double chin
  • Love handles and flanks
  • Male chest (Pseudogynecomastia)
  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Under buttocks

Treatment Process: What to Expect

When you arrive for your treatment you will be there for 1 to 3 hours depending on the treatment area. Your skin will be warmed and the cooling mechanism will be placed on the area of concern for an allotted amount of time.

You may feel some extreme cold, stinging, tingling, and suction feelings during the treatment but it is virtually pain-free. You may also feel some discomfort and have redness in the area for a few hours after the treatment. 


Your results will fully show within 3 weeks of the procedure and after 4 months of the treatment your results can have you lose up to 5 inches of fat on the treatment area. 

While results show after one treatment, we encourage multiple treatments to achieve your optimal goal! 


This is a newer treatment that is FDA approved and also uses temperature to destroy fat. However the difference is that SculpSure uses heat compared to CoolSculpting which uses cooling. SculpSure eliminates fat through the use of advanced thermal laser technology. Your body will expel the dead cells through the lymphatic system as well. 

Possible treatment areas include: 

  • Under the chin
  • Stomach
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Inner and outer thighs

Treatment Process: What to Expect

Another big difference between SculpSure and CoolSculpting is that SculpSure only lasts about 25 minutes! It’s sometimes referred to as the “lunchtime lipo” treatment as it’s such a short process. The advanced technology used allows for the treatment process to take only minutes instead of hours. 

Additionally, with SculpSure you can treat up to 4 areas at a time! Yes, treat all your problem areas at one time. 

Treating up to 4 areas reduces the amount of time you’ll need to come in for a treatment. You’ll knock all the problem areas out in only a few sessions! 

During the treatment you’ll first feel a cooling sensation to prepare your body area for the heated treatment. The mechanism will switch between heating and cooling throughout the 25 minute cycle to help with comfort. 

Once the treatment is over, we advise you to massage the area to kickstart the lymphatic system and minimize any swelling. 

You’ll also be advised to stay out of the direct sun as it is a laser treatment; the area of treated skin will be more sensitive.


You’ll find the results show up about 6 weeks after the treatment with the greatest results after a few months when the body finally sheds the dead fat cells. You’ll see about 25% fat reduction in the area. 96% of clients state that they are very satisfied with the end results. 

You may need a few sessions to completely reach your goal, but that depends on the areas of concern. 

Another perk of SculpSure? Your treated area will look tighter and smoother because the fat heating technology helps to kickstart collagen and elastin regrow and reproduction!
