CoolSculpting vs. SculpSure: A Definitive Guide

CoolSculpting vs. SculpSure: A Definitive Guide

There are several body contouring treatments on the market that are dedicated to shrink those areas on our body that are resistant to diet and exercise.  Two of these body-contouring treatments have emerged as clear winners with clients: CoolSculpting and SculpSure.*

Both of these treatments have been clinically shown to reduce body fat by up to 20%.*  But when it comes down to it, what are the real differences between the two – and which body contouring treatment is best for you?

Let’s take a look!

  • Technology:  CoolSculpting uses a deep cooling energy to target fat cells, while SculpSure uses a heat laser with cooling applicator.
  • Effectiveness:  CoolSculpting has been shown to reduce fat cells by up to 22% in around two to four months; SculpSure can reduce fat cells by up to 25% in around six weeks to three months.*
  • Treatment time: It takes about 25 minutes to administer a SculpSure treatment (which can be done via four applicators at once); CoolSculpting can only use one applicator at a time, which takes about one hour.  Therefore, clients who want to CoolSculpt their entire abdomen need to go through several hours of treatment.  The abdomen is typically treated in one to two SculpSure sessions which can last between 25 and 50 minutes. 
  • Cost: On average, it costs about $350 per SculpSure applicator; with CoolSculpting, the cost is around $600 per applicator.
  • Treatment areas:  SculpSure is FDA-approved for the treatment of abdomen and flanks; CoolSculpting can be used to treat the same areas.

Based on these comparisons, SculpSure is an ideal treatment for those clients looking for a fast, effective, and more affordable approach to body contouring.
