What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that uses cooling to remove and reduce fat cells. CoolSculpting involves freezing the fat cells in a desired target area. In doing this, the fat cells are destroyed over time. Only the direct target areas will be affected by the treatment. CoolSculpting does not offer a full-body fat reduction solution and is ideal for those looking to target specific areas only.
The most common areas of the body targeted during CoolSculpting are the chin, arms, and back. These areas are often difficult to target with diet and exercise and even those at their ideal weight may struggle with unwanted fat in these areas. CoolSculpting offers an effective solution to destroy fat in these target areas.
What is Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic Cavitation, sometimes referred to as ultra cavitation is another non-surgical fat loss procedure. Unlike CoolSculpting which uses freezing to remove fat, Ultrasonic Cavitation uses ultrasound waves to destroy fat cells in specific treatment areas.
Ultrasonic Cavitation is ideal for the upper arms, belly, thighs, chin, and love handles. It is a somewhat lengthy procedure requiring many visits, each lasting around an hour.
What are the Side Effects?
CoolSculpting uses freezing to eliminate fat and some people find the procedure slightly uncomfortable. There are typically no lasting side effects, but patients may expect some soreness, redness, swelling, or bruising following a procedure. These effects are temporary and should improve within a few days of the procedure.
Ultrasonic Cavitation is painless and there are typically no side effects or recovery time needed after the procedure. Seeing results after the procedure can take up to three months after your last treatment.
Which One is Better?
Both CoolSculpting and Ultrasonic Cavitation are ideal for individuals who are at or near their ideal body weight. It is not ideal for those who are looking for a weight loss solution. If you are looking to remove stubborn fat from a specific target area, either procedure might be right for you.
Though both procedures offer results, every person’s personal results will vary. It may be best to consult with a professional who can aid you in choosing the best product for your body type and desired results. Consider booking a free consultation with NewDermaMed today.
