WarmSculpting Q & A

 

Here are some before and after pictures: 

 
 
 

What Is Warm Sculpting AKA SculpSure Treatments? 

 It is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses warming laser to eliminate unwanted fat and tighten skin.  During treatment, an applicator with four paddles is secured to the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, or chin in order to selectively heat and destroy subcutaneous fat cells. The warming is paired with a cooling effect to improve patient comfort and maintain safety. 

How long before results appear?  

In the coming weeks and months, the destroyed fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body via the lymphatic system. Patients can begin to note visible slimming and toning around four-to-six weeks.   

How long is treatment?  

Each Warm Sculpting treatment takes just 25 minutes, and patients are free to resume all normal activities immediately after.

Does this require surgery? 

No needles, no anesthesia, no scaring, bruising or recovery. 

Is there any down time? 

Patients are free to resume all normal activities immediately after. 

What Is CoolSculpting?  

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical fat removal treatments that delivers cooling in order to freeze and eradicate stubborn fat bulges. A curved applicator suctions fatty tissue in between two cooling plates. Patients may feel a tugging or pulling sensation and then noticeable cooling of the tissue to four degrees Celsius.  Depending on the area being treated, each CoolSculpting session can last 35-60 minutes.  Following treatment, frozen fat cells are cleared away through natural detoxification channels. 

Warm Sculpting vs. CoolSculpting – Which Treatment Is Best? 

When it comes to Warm Sculpting vs. CoolSculpting, many patients ask which one they should choose.  Both treatments are nonsurgical and destroy subcutaneous fat cells in similar ways, though Warm Sculpting employs heat and CoolSculpting uses freezing temperatures. They are also FDA-cleared and are both much safer than liposuction. Warm Sculpting requires a shorter treatment time and uses four applicators to simultaneously target multiple areas of unwanted fat. 

To compare, CoolSculpting employs a single applicator to target one localized pocket of fat. 

Furthermore, Warm Sculpting avoids the pulling, tugging, numbness, and bruising that are commonly associated with CoolSculpting. 

Finally, CoolSculpting is limited to pinchable areas of fat that can be vacuumed into an applicator. SculpSure does not operate with the same restriction, making it a more versatile alternative.
