SculpSure vs. CoolSculpting

Powerful Non-Invasive body Contouring with SculpSure!

Sometimes, it seems like technology is advancing at the speed of light.  Every time you turn around, a new technology has popped up that makes life easier and more convenient.  Advancements in non-invasive body contouring are happening just as quickly, and for individuals who are frustrated by unsightly love handles and fatty bulges that just won’t go away no matter how much you control your diet and step up your exercise, the prospects are exciting.  Yet at the same time, it can be difficult to know which exciting technology to choose, and which will actually deliver on its promises.

Board Certified Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr. Darrell Gonzales and his experienced team of practitioners at Coastal Medical and Cosmetic Dermatology in La Jolla and Chula Vista, California have selected SculpSure light-based non-invasive body contouring above other non-invasive body sculpting technologies because it delivers what it promises: powerful, highly effective, long lasting body contouring quickly, comfortably, and safely.  SculpSure harnesses the power of light to gently heat excess fat cells at the root of love handles, unsightly bulges around the abdomen, and heavy, fatty flanks.  The result: up to 24% fat reduction in these common trouble zones, leaving behind a toned, shapely, naturally-beautiful body!

Why Choose SculpSure Instead of CoolSculpting?

Along with SculpSure, the other major advancement in non-invasive body contouring is CoolSculpting.  Both technologies deliver long lasting fat reduction without the need for invasive surgery by eliminating unwanted fat cells, enabling them to be naturally reabsorbed by the body.  However, SculpSure offers several key benefits over CoolSculpting:  

  • SculpSure utilizes the known power of light. SculpSure utilizes the power of light to gently heat the unwanted fat cells, shocking them and causing them to die, while ensuring that the outer layers of skin are unaffected.  The use of light in non-invasive skin rejuvenation has a long and proven track record of success.  CoolSculpting, on the other hand, relies on a limited technology of localized freezing of fat cells. This technology takes longer and is associated with pain following the procedure.
  • SculpSure is comfortable: Because it utilizes a flat applicator that simply directs light through the skin, SculpSure is a comfortable treatment without side effects.  Most patients describe feeling nothing more than a gentle warming sensation during the treatment.  CoolSculpting requires pulling up the skin and pinching it between the applicator panels, for a less comfortable experience.
  • SculpSure requires less than half the treatment time: Perfect for the larger problem areas around the abdomen and flanks, one SculpSure treatment requires only 25 minutes, less than half the time of a CoolSculpting treatment, which usually requires upwards of 60 minutes to treat these large areas.
  • SculpSure offers greater versatility: SculpSure’s revolutionary flat, four-headed applicator facilitates the treatment of the entire abdomen or both love handles, or even both flanks, in one short session.  And the flat applicator ensures that even small individuals with less fat will benefit.  CoolSculpting’s smaller, less versatile applicator can only focus on small areas at once, lengthening treatment times, while younger, slimmer individuals with less tissue, meaning it cannot be sucked between the applicator panels, may not benefit from CoolSculpting at all.
