WHY Doucet Med Spa Chose SculpSure®
It’s normal to be skeptical about any treatment that promises fat loss. Body contouring used to be something that only a surgery could accomplish… but not anymore! Non-surgical body contouring has become the latest craze. Currently, there are 2 systems that offer similar results for permanent fat destruction.
CoolSculpting® (which hit the market several years ago) and the newest technology called SculpSure®
CoolSculpting® uses Cryoliposis to freeze the fat cells to destruction.
Each treatment takes about an hour, and the treatment size is relatively small. Your fat tissue has to be pinched into the applicator and a majority of patients will need two hours for one treatment. After a CoolSculpting® treatment, when the applicator is removed you are left with a large lump of tissue that the practitioner has to massage immediately and you are usually left with bruising and you will be sore. You can have numbness and tingling in the treatment area due to the freezing that may affect the nerves. But it does work if the practitioner is well trained to perform your treatment.
Sculpture®uses a laser technology to heat the fat cells to destruction.
Each Sculpture® treatment destroys 24% of the fat cells in the treatment area in just 25 minutes. (That’s half the time of CoolSculpting®) The applicators click into a grid that is customized for your target area and it is placed on top of your skin. There is no pinching. You will experience waves of heating and cooling. The treatment area is much larger and really easy to customize. Afterwards, there is no “lump of tissue” to massage immediately. There is no bruising. There is no risk of nerve tingling from freezing. And, as a courtesy, for patients that are super sensitive, we can prescribe a non-narcotic pain medication to take prior to the treatment. The really cool thing about Sculpture® results is that the treated area is super smooth. The laser is able to spread the energy creating a smooth contour.
With CoolSculpting® , your can have a shelfing effect where the treated area isn’t smooth.
After sculpture®, you can actually treat on your lunch hour, go back to work or go to the gym right after your treatment with no evidence!
THE ADVANTAGES OF SCULPSURE® OVER COOLSCULPTING®:
Faster Treatment Time with SculpSure® takes just 25 minutes per session, while a CoolSculpting® treatment session lasts one hour.
Fewer Treatments Needed with SculpSure®
– Fewer treatments may be necessary with SculpSure® and it can be customized to treat up to four areas at once, or a larger surface area, whereas
CoolSculpting® can only treat one area of the body at a time.
No Downtime and Quicker Recovery with SculpSure®
Smoother Results/Skin Tightening – SculpSure® also has no downtime or recovery period.
CoolSculpting® may cause bruising, tingling and/or numbness and may require patients to refrain from strenuous activities for a little while.
Smoother Results/Skin Tightening with Sculpsure®
Sculpsure® results are extremely smooth and spread to surrounding tissue to create a beautiful contouring and patients may benefit from some skin tightening as an added benefit from the laser energy.
CoolSculpting® can result in a “shelfing effect” where the treated area is uneven.
Quicker Results with Sculpsure®
CoolSculpting® results may take as long as four to six months to become noticeable.
