Body contouring: SculpSure vs Cryoskin

Sculpsure vs Cryoskin

At Amethyst Wellness, we are pleased to offer 2 types of body contouring.

SculpSure provides body contouring and fat reduction by using non-invasive technology.  SculpSure uses laser energy to heat up fat cells and induce apoptosis (cell death).   The damaged cells are removed through the body’s lymphatic system, resulting in long-lasting fat reduction.  The sessions last 25 minutes per area.

Cryoskin provides body contouring and fat reduction using non-invasive technology that induces apoptosis (cell death) through the concentrated use of heat and cold to eliminate fat cells. The damaged cells are removed through the body’s lymphatic system.   The slimming session lasts for 28 minutes and is done manually through a massage technique.

Which treatment is right for you?


  • You want immediate results

Cryoskin offers immediate results.  The best results are seen 2-3 weeks after the first session and extend for several months afterwards.   This is a great treatment to have right before vacation or another important event.

SculpSure results are seen as early as 4 weeks, but best results are 12 weeks after the second treatment.


  • You have a low pain tolerance

Cryoskin is painless, though the technician will apply pressure to the treated area. 

SculpSure is slightly uncomfortable.  Many people describe the process as a cramping, stinging, warm sensation.


  • You cannot come to the office every 2 weeks

SculpSure recommends just 2 treatments spaced 1 month apart. 

Cryoskin treatments must be performed every 2 weeks and up to 5 treatments may be required.


  • You want multiple areas treated in 1 day

SculpSure allows treatment of multiple areas in a day (up to 4 areas). 

Cryoskin must be performed on 1 area at a time no sooner than 2 weeks apart.


  • You’re sensitive to cold

SculpSure uses heat to destroy fat cells. 

Cryoskin uses cooling technology and is not indicated for someone with a history of Raynaud’s syndrome or cold sensitivity.


  • You need to eat carbs

SculpSure doesn’t require dietary restrictions. 

Cryoskin is less effective if carbohydrates are consumed 2 hours before or 2 hours after treatment.  It’s very important to avoid carbohydrates before and after treatment.


  • You also have cellulite

Consider CryoToning in between your cryoskin slimming sessions.  Cryotoning improves microcirculation and speeds up metabolism which results in higher collagen production.  This can be done in an alternating fashion between cryoskin slimming sessions.


  • You want long-lasting results

Both Cryoskin and SculpSure offer long lasting results.  Best results occur when healthy diet and exercise are followed.  Remember, these technologies cannot remove all the fat cells.  The remaining fat cells can expand and hypertrophy.  This same phenomenon can occur after surgical liposuction.  You must do your part to achieve long-lasting results.
