SculpSure vs CoolSculpting

How Is SculpSure Different Than CoolSculpting in Virginia Beach, VA: Differences in Non-Invasive Fat Reduction Technologies

Here is a question that we here at Norfolk Plastic Surgery have received from time to time – how is Virginia Beach SculpSure non-invasive fat reduction different than CoolSculpting? Great question! The two technologies yield the same clinical results, but SculpSure – as a newer, and more advanced technology – has many benefits and advantages that CoolSculpting does not.

(SculpSure is clinically proven & FDA-cleared to permanently reduce up to 24% of fat cells in a treated area from just 1 session. Since treatment plans typically include 2 sessions, SculpSure results exceed this.)

Time of Treatment – SculpSure only takes 25 minutes per area, whereas CoolSculpting can take up to an hour or more per area. SculpSure is certainly the quickest non-invasive fat reduction treatment available today, often easily fitting into a lunch break.

Side Effects – SculpSure does not incur any of the swelling, bruising or nerve pain that can accompany CoolSculpting. Side effects with SculpSure are typically far more manageable. The nerve pain that can accompany CoolSculpting can be quite intense.

“Thermal Spread” – Because SculpSure uses heat – and not freezing – we are able to achieve a “thermal spread” outside the treatment zone. This means that you are receiving fat cell loss even outside the immediate area, so everything will look smooth and even – and no one will be able to tell where the SculpSure treatment ended or began. This is not the case with CoolSculpting, which can lead to very severe lumps, bumps and “bites.”

Microdermabrasion Norfolk

Skin care is so important and unfortunately many people don’t realize this until there is already damage. Luckily, today there are more treatment options available than ever before to rejuvenate and repair the skin. At Norfolk Plastic Surgery we are happy to offer many skin care treatments to keep your skin looking it’s very best. One of the skin care treatments we offer is Microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion works by using tiny crystals to remove the outer layer of dead and damaged skin cells to reveal the smooth, healthy skin beneath. Since Microdermabrasion is removing that dead outer layer of skin, any skin imperfection on that layer will also be removed such as uneven skin pigmentation, fine line, wrinkles and sun damage. Consulting with a skin care specialist is the best way to determine if Microdermabrasion is the right treatment option for you. Contact our office to schedule your consultation today.
