Both of these treatments are available at Stone Oak Dermatology with Dr. Linda J. Banta, and have their own advantages and disadvantages. If you are thinking about either of these procedures, learn more about the two to decide which one is right for you!
What is Warmsculpting®?
Warmsculpting® is a descriptive term used to talk about a procedure called SculpSure®. This is a body contouring treatment used by our team to eliminate both unwanted fat and skin laxity with the use of hyperthermic lasers. An applicator is used on the problem areas and destroys the fat cells underneath the skin, allowing the body to naturally eliminate them through the lymphatic system.
What is Coolsculpting®?
Like Warmsculpting®, Coolsculpting® targets unwanted fat and flushes these cells through the body over the course of several weeks following treatment. However, Coolsculpting® uses cold energy to freeze fat cells without harming surrounding skin and tissues. Both provide results in approximately four to six weeks with noticeable slimming.
Which treatment option is best for me and my unique body contouring needs?
Both SculpSure® and Coolsculpting® have been approved for cosmetic use by the FDA, ensuring they are both safe and appropriate for body contouring. Some of the benefits of SculpSure® over Coolsculpting® include shorter treatment times, treatment of multiple target areas at once, and can be used on areas of the body that Coolsculpting® cannot. When you talk with Dr. Linda J. Banta of San Antonio, TX, you can find out which one is most appropriate for your needs.
