SculpSure Vs CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is regularly mentioned when discussing noninvasive fat removal, however many don’t know that in almost all respects, it couldn’t be more different than SculpSure. As its name would suggest, CoolSculpting utilizes cold to freeze fat cells as it suctions areas of fat between two cooling plates. It takes approximately one hour to treat any given area. *It’s important to note that if you are treating areas such as your arms or love handles, these require two treatments, as each arm or love handle is considered a separate treatment area and cannot be treated simultaneously. Many clinics allow back to back treatments, resulting in a two-hour long procedure. Following treatment, compression girdles and massages to the treated areas are recommended to help with swelling that may occur. It can vary from clinic to clinic, but typical costs of CoolSculpting are in the range of $600+ per applicator.
SculpSure Vs Other Non-Invasive Treatments
Besides CoolSculpting, there are several other noninvasive body sculpting and fat removal methods available. Some employ radiofrequency or high frequency technology in order to eliminate fat cells. Both methods require hour-long treatment sessions and are often accompanied with pain that is to be treated via prescription medication. The downtime for these procedures can last for approximately eight hours. Furthermore, many patients notice visible bruising at the treatment site within the week following the procedure. These methods tend to cost anywhere between $1500 and $2500 dollars per zone, though this is dependent on the areas being treated. In addition to SculpSure, there are a few other procedures available which utilize lasers to melt fat, however it still needs to be removed, as this method cannot rely on your body’s immune system as SculpSure does. These treatments are often far more common as in a technical sense, surgery is involved. As such, they tend to be priced similarly to surgical liposuction procedures, at a range between $3500 and $7500.
