CoolSculpting in Casa Grande is a revolutionary technology that uses a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis which targets, cools and eliminates fat cells. After a CoolSculpting procedure the body continues to break down the treated fat cells, now in a crystallized or frozen state, leading to fat cell death. Over the next two to four months they are naturally flushed from the body.
Cool Sculpting procedure is designed to target and destroy 20%-25% of the fat cells in the treated area. Diet, exercise and other procedures may shrink fat cells, leaving an open opportunity to increase the size of those same fat cells from a lifestyle shift. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. Cool Sculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Over the course of the following weeks after your treatment, your body processes the fat and eliminates it from the body naturally. While dieting and exercise makes the fat cells smaller, this fat freezing procedure gets rid of them completely, allowing you to enjoy positive and long-lasting results of CoolSculpting!
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting in Casa Grande?Non-invasive Fat Reduction Options
Getting rid of unwanted fat has never been easier, and today, it can be done through non-invasive techniques. There have been many comparisons between the different options, especially between SculpSure vs CoolSculpting. Both SculpSure and CoolSculpting are FDA-approved non-invasive fat reduction techniques and have seen success as an alternative to lipo. So which non-invasive procedure is better?
Time in the Market
CoolSculpting has been available in the commercial market since 2010 and has established itself as a proven alternative to invasive lipo. On the contrast, SculpSure has only been on the market for less than 6 months. With CoolSculpting, doctors understand all of the possible outcomes and long-term effects. SculpSure just hasn’t been out long enough to know the long-term effects of lasers to your fat! When looking at these facts, it’s easy to say that CoolSculpting wins on this front.
Winner: CoolSculptingThere is no arguing the efficacy of CoolSculpting, as it has been in use for nearly a decade and has countless customer testimonials, whereas SculpSure is too new for us to make a determination as to its efficacy. At this point, it should still be considered experimental and your results could be much different than you expect. -Luxe Laser Centervia Luxe Laser Center
CoolSculpting uses the process of freezing and killing your fat cells. After the procedure is done, those fat cells die and are flushed out of the system, never to return. SculpSure uses a direct laser that heats the fat cells in a concentrated area and causes them to release into the body, dissipating fat in that treated area. Both CoolSculpting and SculpSure have had success, however, CoolSculpting has been scientifically supported through dozens of FDA research articles, while SculpSure still has many concerns about its procedure, specifically related to efficacy being lost when the heat is turned down due to pain during the procedure. Many organizations consider SculpSure as “Experimental” (including a Cynosure Training facility!) and strongly believe that freezing fat is more effective and safer long term. If a Cynosure training facility isn’t comfortable offering SculpSure, that says something!

In most states, anyone holding a medical Ph.D is cleared to operate non-surgical procedures, including CoolSculpting and SculpSure, but is this enough? So many doctors are “qualified” to operate CoolSculpting and SculpSure equipment with little to no training! However, CoolSculpting requires a certification program that trains and educates any CoolSculpting operators to ensure maximum results and minimize the chance of injury. To this date, there is no documentation nor any proof that SculpSure has any such training programs. Because of the lack of evidence of training from SculpSure, CoolSculpting wins the training section.

Both CoolSculpting and SculpSure are considerably less time than invasive lipo procedure, which makes non-invasive procedures extremely desirable for those that want to lose stubborn fat! That being said, SculpSure does have a slight advantage over CoolSculpting in the length of the procedure. SculpSure has an average of 30 minute procedure compared to 45–60 minute for CoolSculpting. Both procedures have no downtime, which is a million times better than the average 1 week downtime after traditional liposuction. Time wise, SculpSure wins this round.
CoolSculpting received their first FDA approval in 2010 and is currently FDA approved for the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and chin. SculpSure received their first FDA approval in late 2015 and is only approved for abdomen and flanks. Don’t be fooled when doctors offer treatment for arms, back, calves, etc — these areas are NOT FDA approved! Both CoolSculpting and SculpSure CAN treat most areas, but only the above areas are FDA approved. CoolSculpting is currently the only non-invasive fat reduction procedure that is FDA approved for the chin area. Having been cleared to for more treatment areas and for longer, CoolSculpting is the winner of this round.
Track Record & Reviews
Currently on top review sites such as RealSelf, SculpSure has only 23 reviews on RealSelf compared to CoolSculpting’s almost 800 reviews. The main issue with sites like RealSelf is that anyone can post a review, but I don’t want to get on a soapbox… I’ll save that issue for another blog. RealPatientRatings is a great website for reviews since the request for a review comes straight from the doctor, ensuring all reviews are real. Coolsculpting has almost 400 reviews on realpatientratings.com, while SculpSure has no reviews. While the verdict is still out on SculpSure, CoolSculpting has a proven track record and has consistently shown results.
And the Winner Is…
CoolSculpting has been showing consistent results with no long term side effects for years, while even Cynosure’s training facilities won’t offer their own product, SculpSure, since it’s experimental. In Sculpsure vs CoolSculpting, CoolSculpting comes out on top 5 to 1.
Cryolipolysis - The Ultimate Fat Freezing Solution
CoolSculpting is the body contouring procedure we have all been waiting for - a 100% non-invasive method to dissolve away unwanted fat. Body contouring is a term that encompasses a wide range of cosmetic medical procedures that help you reshape your body. Liposuction is perhaps the oldest and best-known form of body contouring. In recent years, various other less-invasive methods have been introduced to help reshape and get rid of unwanted fat. Laserlipo and Lipodissolve have been the two most popular, but these procedures still require cannulas or needles, and still involve some downtime.
CoolSculpting is different. This procedure is 100% noninvasive. It uses an advanced tissue cooling technology to gently target and eliminate fat cells without harming the skin. In other words, it can freeze away your fat. The science behind CoolSculpting was discovered by dermatologists affiliated with Harvard Medical School, and has been extensively studied for the last 4 years. The end result is a state-of-the-art body sculpting device that has been conclusively shown over and over to safely reduce 20-25% of your subcutaneous fat layer with each treatment. Moreover, it does this with only minimal discomfort and no downtime. You may resume your normal activities including work and exercise the same day as your procedure.
CoolSculpting is not a substitute for weight loss, a healthy diet, or exercise (as is the case with any form of body contouring including liposuction). People who are within 10-15 lbs of their ideal body weight are the best candidates for this procedure. CoolSculpting is ideal for those bulges that won't go away no matter what you do, including the abdominal "pooch", the love handles, and that bra-line "back fat". It is proving to be a popular procedure for both women and men. Applicators are being developed for other areas of the body including the thighs, the upper arms, and the chin, but aren't yet available for these areas. Liposuction will remove more fat than CoolSculpting, so while more invasive, it may be a better option for some.
