SculpSure by Cynosure

25 Minutes

FDA Cleared for Laser Thermolipolysis (heats the fat) with cool, flat applicators

25 minute treatment using 4 cool, flat applicators simultaneously (example: treats both love handles in 25 minutes)

No recovery time. Can work out immediately after / minimal tenderness in area treated

Hands free/ flat non-suction applicator with cooling plates that is easily tolerated

No suction, no pulling the tissue, can treat all body types including younger / tighter patients with less fat (doesn't need to be vacuumed)

$1500 average cost per treatment (4 applicators at once)

24% permanent reduction in fat in 6-12 weeks

FDA approved with abdomen and flanks, physicians are treating other off label areas such as below the neck- inner and outer thighs, above the knees, bra line, calves, etc.

Smoother treatment result due to heat dispersion/feathering up to 35% spread outside of the treated areas/applicators

CoolSculpting by Zeltig

60 minutes

FDA cleared for Cyrolipolysis (freezes the fat) with a suctioned applicator

1 hour treatment using 1 suctioned applicator (example: takes 2 hours to treat both love handles)

Up to a few weeks of numbness and bruising/tingling of the treated areas have been reported and potential complications

Suction based applicator and post procedure massage can be quite uncomfortable and cause nerve damage in some patients

Patient's skin and fat must vacuum into applicator or you cannot perform the treatment

Limited applicator shape, size and treatable area / can only treat fat that can be suctioned into the applicator

$600 average cost per small applicator (equivalent to 2 SculpSure applicators) or $1500 per the larger applicator (equivalent to 4 SculpSure applicators)

Average 22% permanent fat reduction in 3-4 months

FDA approved with abdomen and flanks, physicians are treating other off label areas such as below the neck- inner and outer thighs, above the knees, bra line, calves, etc.
