Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.

Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

Is CoolSculpting Painful? How Long is the Downtime?

It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap.

The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately.

You will like what you see. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction

While CoolSculpting and liposuction are both body contouring procedures that can slim and reshape common trouble spots, some key differences exist between them.

Most notably, CoolSculpting is a noninvasive, zero-downtime procedure, and liposuction is a surgical option with considerable recovery.

If you are wondering which treatment is right for you, here’s everything you need to know about CoolSculpting vs. liposuction.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction – Type of Procedure

CoolScuplting is a nonsurgical, noninvasive procedure. This means that it doesn’t require incisions, sutures, or anesthesia. During treatment, a CoolSculpting applicator vacuums fat bulges and cools fat cells to freezing temperatures.

This causes fat cells to undergo apoptosis (cell death), and they are eliminated from the body, via the lymphatic system, in the coming weeks and months.

Liposuction is an outpatient surgical procedure that is performed with tumescent or general anesthesia. It involves making small cuts in the skin and inserting a long thin tube called a cannula to suction and remove fat.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction – Mechanism of Action

CoolSculpting relies on a process known as cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy localized fat deposits.

Liposuction utilizes surgical extraction to eliminate unwanted fat. In some cases, a laser is introduced to melt fat cells prior to removal.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction – Results

CoolSculpting has been clinically-proven to reduce up to 25 percent of subcutaneous fat in the treatment area. Results can be noted within four-to-six weeks of treatment and peak at three months.

Liposuction is meant to eradicate larger volumes of fat and some improvement can be seen immediately. However, it can take one-to-three months for swelling to subside and reveal final results.

How Long Does CoolSculpting Last?

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction – Treatment Time

Most CoolSculpting treatments take 35-60 minutes, depending on the location of the fat bulge.

On the other hand, liposuction takes place in a surgical suite, and the procedure usually lasts two hours.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction – Downtime

CoolSculpting requires zero downtime. Patients are free to resume activities right away and go about their day as they normally would.

Following liposuction, patients will need several days of recovery, including two-to-four days off from work.

Additionally, they should abstain from strenuous activity for two-to-four weeks or until they receive clearance from their surgeon.

CoolSculpting vs. truSculpt 3D

In an ideal world, women and men would be able to reach their body goals through diet and exercise alone. However, despite their best efforts, many people struggle with stubborn fat bulges on their abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, and arms.

Fortunately, noninvasive body contouring procedures like CoolSculpting and truSculpt are able to eliminate diet and exercise resistant fat and reveal a trim and toned physique.

If you need help choosing between these two treatment options, continue reading to learn the differences between CoolSculpting vs. truSculpt.

What Is truSculpt?

TruSculpt is an FDA-approved fat removal procedure that relies on radiofrequency energy to heat and eliminate small deposits of fat.

Treatment is performed using a flat handheld device, which heats fat cells to the point of apoptosis (cell death). A truSculpt session can be completed in 15-60 minutes depending on the size of the targeted area.

CoolSculpting vs. truSculpt – What’s the Difference?

When comparing CoolSculpting vs. truSculpt, there are several differences that patients should be aware of.

To start, they destroy fat with opposite mechanisms of action – CoolSculpting applies controlled cooling, while truSculpt heats fat cells.

This difference also affects patient comfort. CoolSculpting tends to numb the treatment area within a matter of minutes, while truSculpt’s heat can result in mild discomfort and sweating during treatment.

Additionally, the size and shape of the treatment handpieces is another factor to consider.

CoolSculpting has seven unique applicators, of different sizes and shapes, that are ideal for fat rolls and bulges. On the other hand, truSculpt is a square device that doesn’t grab hold of fatty tissue and is well-suited to smaller, flatter pockets of fat.

Finally, most patients achieve optimal results with one-to-two CoolSculpting treatments, which can be spaced four-to-six weeks apart.

Comparatively, individuals may need to undergo one-to-four truSculpt sessions, scheduled four-to-eight weeks apart, to reach their body goals.

CoolSculpting vs. truSculpt – Which Treatment is Right for Me?

An in-person consultation is the best way to determine if CoolSculpting vs. TruSculpt is best-suited to your needs and goals.
