Hot Sculpting vs Sculpsure are these the same or is one better than another?
Doctor Answers 10
Thank you for your question. SculpSure is the premier body contouring procedure. As the only FDA-approved procedure to melt 25% of your unwanted stubborn pockets of fat in 25-minutes or less, SculpSure provides little to no downtime in a safe and positive experience. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
SculpSure vs. Hot Sculpting
Honestly, I can't say for certain if one is better than the other. However, SculpSure is FDA approved which means that it has gone through a long testing phase to check both its safety and efficacy. Personally, I am a huge fan of the procedure and know that it works. Can't same the same for hot sculpting. Hope this helps.
Hot sculpt vs Sculpture
The verdict isn't out yet on the comparatives between these 2 technologies. The mechanism of action is the same .They both heat the fat to eliminate it. The wavelengths used are amost identical, the Fotona uses the 1064nm wavelength and the Sculpsure uses the 1060nm wavelength.
There is no cold treatment in the Hotsculpt treatment, but there is good skin tightening with it. Although Hotsculpt is not yet FDA cleared for 25 % fat reduction, time will tell how these 2 technologies compare. They are both great technologies!

Thank you for your question.
Sculpsure is a noninvasive 1060nm diode laser treatment that removes up to 25% of stubborn fat in the treated area in 25 minutes.It is FDA approved for the abdomen and flanks. It is safe if you get pregnant in the future.
The body contouring effects are seen in as quick as six weeks with final results at 12 weeks.
The results are permanent as long as you maintain your weight and health.
The laser targets and destroys the fat cells only which are then naturally removed from the body. Since the laser does not affect the skin or muscle it can be used on all skin colors and there has been no reported incidents of burns when treated by a properly trained physician. It is protective since it alternates heating and cooling.
It has four applicators that can be customized to treat the areas of stubborn fat.
If a second treatment is needed we wait at least six weeks and usually closer to 12.
If you notice lumps after (which I've never seen) I would recommend massage. You should also alert your surgeon.
There is no downtime and you can resume your normal activities right after the treatment. There may be some soreness in the area for a few days for which you can take ibuprofen or tylenol. A cold compress can also be used.
Sculpsure is not used for skin tightening however some of our patients have seen this. If more skin tightening is needed we have combined this with thermi or Ulthera for a complete treatment. Sculpsure is recommended for stubborn areas of fat that are not being lost by diet and exercise. It is not a weight loss treatment
Since I have both a coolsculpting and sculpsure I am working on protocols of utilizing both of these depending upon what areas need to be treated and the response to the treatment.
I have used sculpsure on other areas other than the abdomen with very good results.
I also use a Vectra 3D imaging system to try and show people what their treatment areas could look like.
Since Sculpsure outcomes can be based on technique and experience, please see a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes body contouring to see if Sculpsure or other treatments are available to meet your goals.

Other companies 'short cut' this process, hence the safety and results may not be as good.
I can not say that Sculpsure is better than Hot Sculpting, but all I can advice is that Sculpsure has scientifically proven results of up to 24% reduction of fat in one 25 minute treatment, with the added bonus of absolute SAFETY.
