By now, you have probably heard of body contouring. It involves reducing the areas of the body that do not respond well to diet and exercise in a non-surgical way. You have more than one option when it comes to this process. Both SculpSure and CoolSculpting® are wildly popular and have unique benefits to offer to those on the quest for the perfect body.
How Do These Treatments Work?
Fat cells are more vulnerable to dramatic fluctuations in temperature. This is the reason both SculpSure and CoolSculpting® are possible. SculpSure works by safely heating up fat cells using lasers. CoolSculpting®, on the other hand, involves lowering the temperature of the fat cells to the point they crystallize. This is the primary difference between the two. Both methods ultimately end up killing fat cells, which then release their contents to be flushed out of the body via the lymphatic system. Both also have ways to protect your surrounding skin and tissue to ensure that nothing else is impacted.
The Pros of CoolSculpting®
Many people choose to go with CoolSculpting® because:
- There is no downtime
- It has been around longer than SculpSure
- It can be used in a wide variety of areas, including the chin, neck, thighs, and back
- After the initial cold feeling, the treatment is very relaxing
- Results develop gradually over time
The Pros of SculpSure
Many of the pros of SculpSure are exactly the same as those of CoolSculpting®. They include:
- There is no downtime
- Treatments typically take less than 30 minutes
- It is considered very safe and effective
- There is minimal discomfort
The biggest advantage that SculpSure has over CoolSculpting® is that it stimulates the production of collagen. This helps to tighten up the skin over the area that is treated.
