The "Skinny" on WarmSculpting vs CoolSculpting


The Skinny on Warmsculpting Vs. Coolsculpting

Let’s face it, we all have those stubborn areas of fat that seem to stick around no matter what! Sometimes exercise and a healthy diet alone isn’t enough to decrease those fat deposits. Luckily, we have noninvasive permanent fat reduction treatments that will get rid of those pesky fat cells for good!

What is Warmsculpting?

Warmsculpting is a noninvasive body contouring treatment that uses laser technology to permanently destroy stubborn fat cells.  Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are eliminated through the lymphatic system. Warmsculpting with Sculpsure has no downtime and patients can expect up to 24% fat reduction per treatment with results beginning at 6 weeks and progressing up to 12 weeks.  While some patients can experience soreness, redness, temporary nodules and bruising, there are no known serious or long lasting side effects after the treatment.


What is Coolsculpting?

Like Warmsculpting, Coolsculpting is a permanent fat reduction treatment, but a cooling factor is used instead of heat. A vacuum like applicator is used to pull the fat under the skin into the applicator where the fat cells are then frozen. This fat reduction treatment also shows results anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks and patients can experience up to 25% fat reduction per treatment. While Coolsculpting can be effective, the pulling of the skin can often times cause nerve pain that can last anywhere from minutes to weeks. Another possible side effect to be aware of is, paradoxical adipose hyperplasia which causes the treatment area to expand and harden into an unnaturally shaped lump in response to the extreme cold.


Why we offer and LOVE Warmsculpting with SculpSure!

At Atmosphere Med Spa, we provide only the most effective treatments for our patients! We love Warmsculpting with SculpSure because:

  • It has a higher success and satisfaction rate than Coolsculpting.1
  • The laser beam is directed to a wider surface area which provides no risk of shelving, lumpiness, or unevenness.
  • Treatments are more customizable with 4 applicators per treatment.
  • Provides thermal “injury” which stimulates a collagen production response which results in skin tightening in the treatment area.
