HotSculpting Vs. SculpSure

HotSculpting and SculpSure are both non-invasive laser body-contouring treatments that reduce unwanted fat in the areas of treatment

Both treatments are innovative in the way that they remove fat from the body. Non-invasive laser body-contouring treatments can achieve substantially improved results where the focus laser system is applied on the surface of the skin. Both HotSculpting and SculpSure are laser-assisted liposuction procedures that use a 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser to melt away the subcutaneous fat in the body.

The Difference

SculpSure is an innovative laser body-contouring treatment that effectively reduces the fat in the treatment area in 25 minutes. Treatments are completed by a machine that is equipped with 4 applicators, which can treat a combination of treatments around the stomach. Some patients find that SculpSure treatments are uncomfortable.

HotSculpting treatments are very well tolerated, and patients can expect to feel the sensation of heat in the treatment area, similar that of a hot stone massage. Most people do not require any pain remedies when receiving HotSculpting treatments.

Side Effects

SculpSure treatments are limited to areas accessible to the applicators. HotSculpting treatments are customizable to each person’s unique area for a thorough and complete coverage.


HotSculpting treatments treatments are highly customizable and can contour smaller areas that even SculpSure or CoolSculpting cannot treat. Some of the hard-to-treat areas that only HotSculpting can treat include the underarm area, in and around the knees, the full jawline area, and the upper chest area for a non-surgical breast lift. HotSculpting is an ideal treatment for large or smaller areas on the face and body.

SculpSure is mainly indicated for the treatment of the stomach and flanks. However, SculpSure can treat other areas on the body with the consent of both the patient and the performing practitioner.

Treatment Experience

SculpSure treatments are 25 minutes long, and up to 4 areas can be treated in one session. SculpSure treatments can remove up to 24% of fat in the treatment area. SculpSure is a convenient way to treat multiple areas with 1 or 2 sessions in about an hour. Treatments can be repeated every 6 weeks.

HotSculpting procedure are quick, and multiple areas can be treated within a 1-hour period. Each body part requires approximately 11 minutes to complete. HotSculpting heats the tissue for 8 minutes to induce the death of fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. This is followed by a 3-minute skin-tightening procedure that shrinks and firms up the skin. An area of about half of the standard paper size is a general treatment area that HotSculpting can treat during a single session. One session can cover an area like the back of the arms, half of the stomach, outer thigh, inner thigh, calves, or knees.


SculpSure results can be seen at about 12 weeks, with visible reduction of fat in the treatment areas after the second treatment. SculpSure fat reduction treatments can be repeated every 6 weeks.

HotSculpting results can be seen immediately in most cases, while SculpSure treatment results can take up to 12 weeks to display visible improvements. HotSculpting treatments can be repeated every week or bi-weekly until the level of improvements have been achieved. The average person requires at least 6 sessions of HotSculpting treatments. However, the amount of sessions that each person requires is based on the amount of fat reduction that the patient is looking to achieve.
