CoolSculpting Vs. Sculpsure: Which Is Right for You?

Coolsculpting Vs Sculpsure: Which Is Right for You?

Are you considering body contouring procedures but don’t know which one is right for you? CoolSculpting® and SculpSure® are excellent, safe options for reducing fat in stubborn areas that just won’t go away with diet and exercise alone. While both treatments offer great results, each has unique features to consider before making a choice.

In this blog post, we will explore the differences between CoolSculpting® and SculpSure® so that you can make an informed decision about which treatment option is best for your needs.

Main Differences between CoolSculpting® vs. SculpSure®

The biggest difference between these two treatments is actually the temperature. CoolSculpting® uses cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells, while SculpSure® uses lasers to heat the fat cells. Both effectively remove the fat cells as they naturally dissolve under the skin and are released by the body. 

While both treatments are extremely effective in treating stubborn fat cells, CoolSculpting® has an advantage over SculpSure®. Both treatments are safe and efficient, involve a pain-free application, and require no downtime. However, CoolSculpting® remains a favourite amongst patients as there is more clinical data to support the efficacy of its fat-burning qualities. 

While some people experience numbness or other minor side effects after a SculpSure® treatment, CoolSculpting® is so gentle yet effective that you can receive a different procedure immediately following your treatment! 

Lastly, CoolSculpting® charges by whichever handpiece is required, while SculpSure® charges by laser panel. Cost depends on the size of the treatment area and the number of treatment areas. Both procedures take 35 minutes to an hour, and choosing the proper treatment ultimately depends on your physiology. Evenly distributed fat? SculpSure® is the answer. Stubborn rolls of fat? CoolSculpting® is more suitable for you. 


CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive liposuction procedure that eliminates excess fat pockets by freezing the fat cells. This revolutionary technology applies non-invasive cool temperatures to freeze fat cells, which the body naturally removes.

CoolSculpting® can take up to 3 months for patients to notice visible results, but once this is achieved, patients will enjoy a well-defined, trim physique for an extended period. 


SculpSure® uses laser heat energy to break up fat tissue, disrupting fat cells without damaging the skin. It takes up to 3 months to see visible results after the body naturally disposes of fat cells.
