Dr. Craig Schwartz of Premier Vein & Body in Kansas City, released this video describing the pros and cons of SculpSure vs. CoolSculpting for non-invasive body contouring.
According to Dr. Schwartz some of the advantages of SculpSure over CoolSculpting are:
- Treatment Time: SculpSure only requires 25 minutes for treating up to 4 small areas vs. CoolSculpting where each area requires 1 hour*
- Discomfort: CoolSculpting requires an "intense suction" to bring the fat to be treated into the handpiece, which can cause "Pain, bruising, swelling and more"
- Skin Tightening: SculpSure stimulates collagen and elastin providing some skin tightening
*Editor's Note: Some CoolSculpting practices now offer CoolAdvantage which reduces the treatment time from 1 hour to 35 minutes. In addition, many practices also offer DualSculpting where a patient can treat 2 areas simultaneously with CoolSculpting in just 35 minutes. If treatment time is important to you, you should inquire about these options before booking or you could spend upto 4 hours being treated.
