WarmSculpting vs. CoolSculpting: Which is better at removing fat? 

The topics of weight loss and fat reduction are always top-of-mind in today’s world. People love to discuss what’s worked, what hasn’t, and which latest trends may or may not be able to make a more significant impact with less effort.

Among these popular debates is the comparison of CoolSculpting and WarmSculpting, as people strive to know which non-invasive method is better for truly eliminating fat from the body.

Here is a breakdown of how the two stack up against one another in several key areas.

What is WarmSculpting?

WarmSculpting – also known as SculpSure – is a method of fat removal that uses a laser to overheat and destroy fat cells by heating them to a temperature of 114 degrees Fahrenheit.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical technique used to remove excess fat from the body. It is an FDA-approved method of fat reduction and fat removal that does not require surgery, cuts, or anesthetic.

Where WarmSculpting uses heat, CoolSculpting deep-freezes fat cells and causes them to die and become naturally expelled from the body. It is commonly used to address stubborn areas like love handles, thigh fat, back fat, belly fat, and others that haven’t been able to be eliminated through diet and exercise.

Which is more effective in removing fat?

WarmSculpting, as it turns out, is not as effective in losing body fat. While it is FDA-cleared to remove up to 24% of fat in the treatment area, these FDA clearances were not based on apoptosis – the death of a fat cell – when they were first stated.

This means that while WarmSculpting may reduce fat circumstantially, it is not scientifically proven to directly eliminate fat cells from the body.

CoolSculpting, however, is proven to fully eliminate up to 22% of fat in the treatment area. When the applicator comes in close contact with your skin, it is cooled to a precise temperature that gently causes the fat cells to freeze. The cooling acts as a natural anesthetic and makes for a comfortable experience for the patient.

It does not require surgery, cuts, or anesthetic and is far more effective in eliminating fat than WarmSculpting.

Which is more versatile?

It’s also worth noting a difference in treatment options between the two. While WarmSculpting only has a single uniform applicator of the same size and shape for every patient to use, CoolSculpting offers several different unique applicators of varying shapes, sizes, and contours to meet the needs of every patient.

Which produces longer-lasting results?

The results of CoolSculpting are permanent. Because your body stops producing fat cells after adolescence, once the cells are eliminated, they’re gone forever. And since the procedure is non-invasive, there is little to no downtime afterward, as well.

Are there any side-effects?

A study of 850,000 CoolSculpting treatments discovered only 850 cases of adverse effects (typically bruising or numbness) after the fact – a rate of only .1%.

On the flipside, another study previously stated that more evidence was needed in order to support the safety and effectiveness of laser-based techniques like WarmSculpting.
