What is Body Contouring?
Body contouring is a non-surgical procedure that can help eliminate stubborn fat and tighten skin. Heat and cold can be used to sculpt areas where it may be difficult to naturally lose fat, like under the chin, the upper arms, back, and abdomen.
Body contouring can give you a slimmer, more defined appearance with no anesthetic and no scarring. The results are quickly noticeable and there is no downtime for recovery.
What is Warm Sculpting?
Warm sculpting with SculpSure is the most innovative, cutting edge technology in body contouring today. Focused laser energy is used to gently heat and permanently destroy tenacious fat cells, which are then naturally removed by your body. Collagen and elastin, the building blocks of healthy, firm skin, are stimulated to grow.
Warm Sculpting is FDA approved, non-invasive, painless, and can be performed in the office in around 25 minutes. You can expect to see tighter skin and a leaner appearance in just six weeks.
Coolsculpting vs Warm Sculpting
Coolsculpting uses concentrated cold to destroy fat cells. It can be effective in body contouring, but it has some drawbacks.
Coolsculpting can be uncomfortable. People describe the procedure as stinging and aching, and after the treatment area is frozen you will need to undergo a massage of the area, which can be painful. Soreness and bruising are not uncommon after Coolsculpting. Conversely, Warm Sculpting is generally considered to be painless.
Coolsculpting can only treat one area of the body at a time, whereas Warm Sculpting can address all your treatment areas at once. This leads to less time spent in the office and faster results.
Coolsculpting carries with it a small risk of nerve damage and can lead to numbness in the treatment area. Warm Sculpting has no such risk.
