Considering Body Contouring? Warm Up to SculpSure
Making the decision to opt in for a body contouring treatment doesn’t come easy for many people. Choosing which treatment is best for you often comes with even more confusion and complication. Dr. Doppelt, Southeastern Dermatology and other practices offer a number of non-invasive treatments that can help you achieve a svelte shape, including CoolSculpting® and SculpSure®.
Though both CoolSculpting® and SculpSure® promise fat reduction and offer results, many of our patients have found that SculpSure® is a better option. Comparing the two treatments shows why Dr. Doppelt and many patients alike have warmed up to SculpSure.
What is CoolSculpting?
Approved by the FDA in 2009, CoolSculpting® uses cold technology to freeze fat cells without liposuction or invasive surgery. This in-office treatment allows a doctor to treat one area of the body in an hour-long session and requires 2-4 sessions to achieve noticeable results. No anesthesia is required and most patients don’t experience any pain. Those who do, however, often report feeling delayed pain that compares to tearing, deep stabbing or shooting pain, according to reviews from RealSelf.com.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure® was first granted FDA approval in 2015 and has been heating up in popularity and results since. This non-invasive, fat-melting, 25-minute procedure uses controlled light technology to contour the body. While CoolSculpting® freezes fat cells to slim and shape, SculpSure® gently warms targeted areas to 42-47 degrees Celsius to target stubborn fat and melt it away. After treatment, the emulsified fat cells are naturally removed for painless contouring. Many patients have found not only that they experience a reduction in fat, but also a tightening of the skin. SculpSure® treatments can naturally encourage collagen and elastin production in the treated area.
Why Warm Up to SculpSure?
Dr. Doppelt has found a number of reasons why his patients prefer SculpSure® over CoolSculpting® treatments. Check out the chart below to compare the two popular body contouring treatments:
