Getting rid of unwanted fat has never been easier, and today, it can be done through non-invasive techniques. There have been many comparisons between the different options, in particular between SculpSure vs CoolSculpting.
Both are FDA-approved non-invasive fat reduction techniques and have been successful as an alternative to liposuction. But which procedure is better?
Time in the Market
CoolSculpting has been available in the commercial market since 2010 and has established itself as a proven alternative to invasive lipo. On the contrast, SculpSure has only been on the market for less than six months. With CoolSculpting, doctors understand all of the possible outcomes and long-term effects. SculpSure just hasn’t been out long enough to know the long-term effects of lasers to your fat!
It’s pointless to argue the efficiency of CoolSculpting because it has been used for so long and has numerous customer testimonials. SculpSure, on the other hand, is a newer fat reduction technique and is too new for us to make a determination on it’s effectiveness at this point.
CoolSculpting uses the process of freezing and killing your fat cells. After the procedure is completed, those fat cells die and are flushed out of the system, never to return. SculpSure, on the other hand, uses a precise laser that heats up the fat cells in a particular area and causes the fat cells to release into the body, dissipating fat in that treated area. Both techniques have seen success; but, CoolSculpting has been scientifically supported through multiple FDA research articles. SculpSure still has many concerns about its procedure, specifically related to efficacy being lost when the heat is turned down due to pain. There are a lot of organisations out there that think of SculpSure as being “Experimental” and firmly believe that freezing fat is more efficient and safer.
Both CoolSculpting and SculpSure are considerably less time than invasive lipo procedure, which makes non-invasive procedures extremely desirable for those that want to lose stubborn fat! Although, SculpSure does have a bit of an advantage over CoolSculpting regarding the length of the procedure. SculpSure has an average of the 30-minute procedure compared to 45–60 minute for CoolSculpting. Both procedures have no downtime, which is a million times better than the average one-week downtime after traditional liposuction. Time wise, SculpSure wins this round.

Track Record & Reviews
Currently, on top review sites such as RealSelf, SculpSure has only 23 reviews compared to CoolSculpting’s nearly 800 reviews.

RealPatientRatings is an excellent website for posting reviews since the request for a review comes straight from the doctor, making sure that all reviews are genuine.
And the Winner Is…
CoolSculpting has shown consistent results with zero long-term side effects for years now while SculpSure is still experimental. So with that in mind, CoolSculpting comes out on top 5 to 1.
