CoolSculpting is FDA-Approved to remove up to 22% of fat in the treatment area over a period of a few weeks to a few months following a single treatment.
SculpSure is FDA-Cleared to remove up to 24% of fat in the treatment area, over a period of a few weeks to a few months, following a single treatment.
SculpSure laser targets only the fat cells, destroying them with heat, and protects the skin from any ambient heating with surface cooling. SculpSure can also adjust the treatment to the individual patient’s comfort level. If a certain area feels too warm, that particular laser panel setting can be adjusted to achieve a more comfortable treatment.
There is no suction required with SculpSure, and treatment sessions take only 25 minutes per area. Also, since Sculpsure spreads its heat delivery, a tapering effect is seen (no sharp “cut off”)- resulting in a smooth transition between treated and untreated regions. We also tend to see some skin tightening in the area treated due to collagen stimulation, which does not happen with CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting works by damaging the fat cells using a suction-based handpiece that delivers freezing technology. CoolSculpting can result in more discomfort in the region treated, and this discomfort can be prolonged after the treatment is completed. Once the handpiece is disconnected, the treated area needs to be vigorously massaged to rewarm the tissue. This is reported to be painful and results in a longer recovery. Prolonged numbness and bruising, as well as contour irregularities (“shelving”), have been reported with CoolSculpting. These irregularities can occur because any tissue not sucked into the applicator is not treated, thus there can be a demarcation between treated and untreated areas which can be felt and in some cases even seen.
We are happy to assist you in determining which of our body contouring devices will best meet your needs and goals.

In some cases we will even combine technologies in the same area to achieve the ideal result.
