We recently introduced two of the newest nonsurgical body contouring procedures available for getting swimsuit ready and year round svelte; Cynosure’s SculpSure® and CoolSculpting®. Proving effective in permanently eliminating excess fat cells (adipose fat) in stubborn areas for both men and women, these procedures are much less invasive than surgery and provide lasting results.
In Part 2 of this discussion, we focus on the primary differences between the two technologies and how they stand up to one another, including the amount of time on the market with FDA-clearance and the fat eliminating technology used – heat versus cold.
Among the first body contouring procedures to receive FDA-clearance and scientifically report positive patient outcomes, SculpSure uses light-based technology, a whole new approach to non-invasive lipolysis (heat) using a hyperthermic laser.
CoolSculpting technology entails the delivery of “controlled cooling” to the fat cells underneath the skin using Cryolipolysis (cold). Check out the “Head to Head” video comparing the two treatments. View Head to Head Video
In Part 3 of our Body Contouring discussion, we’ll further examine these technologies.
