When diet and exercise aren’t enough to get rid of stubborn body fat, consider fat reduction treatment. CoolSculpting and SculpSure treatment in Toronto are the two most common body contouring procedures that are used to reduce fat without surgery. Keep reading to learn about how these popular weight loss treatments work and why SculpSure is the better choice for you.
Why You Should Choose SculpSure Instead of CoolSculpting?
Both procedures aim to achieve the same goal of fat reduction without surgery through a process called lipolysis, which is the destruction and removal of fat cells in the body. The methods used for fat removal is where these two weight loss treatments differ from one another. CoolSculpting targets, freezes, and kills fat cells. SculpSure takes the opposite approach by using advanced laser technology to safely overheat and melt fat cells away. Here are a few reasons why you should go for the latter over the former.
Often referred to as the “lunchtime lipo”, SculpSure can be performed in as little as 25 to 30 minutes and can target multiple problem areas simultaneously. CoolSculpting sessions usually take upwards of 35 minutes and while you can target multiple areas as well, it takes longer to cool down fat cells in the body than it does to warm them up.
Thanks to advanced laser technology, SculpSure can treat multiple target areas simultaneously. With CoolSculpting, multiple areas can be treated in one session, but they each have to be done individually. This extends the session duration and increases the cost of the treatment.
SculpSure treatment is infinitely less physically invasive than CoolSculpting. The former uses advanced laser technology that gently warms up and pulsates the surface of the skin so that fat deposits become detached from the tissue and are naturally disposed of by the body. CoolSculpting is a slightly more aggressive and invasive treatment that requires the use of suction cups that are attached to the surface of the skin. Through a process called cryolipolysis, the suction cups target specific areas to freeze and destroy fat cells.
Since CoolSculpting requires the use of vacuum cup applicators, it can result in redness, tenderness, bruising, and inflammation around the treatment areas. SculpSure uses a flat applicator that doesn’t attach to the skin and therefore doesn’t leave any temporary marks at all.
Downtime and Recovery
CoolSculpting is a far more invasive and time-consuming treatment. It can take about two weeks for the marks from the suction cups to fully disappear. During that time, you can resume normal activities, but you might experience some tenderness in the treatment areas. With SculpSure, no downtime is required because the laser never actually makes direct contact with your skin.
Most importantly, both body contouring treatments are perfectly safe and render long-lasting results that are noticeable over the course of 8 to 16 weeks. Of course, individual results may vary. Overall, SculpSure has been proven to reduce fat by about 24%.
