AirSculpt vs CoolSculpting

AirSculpt vs CoolSculpting


Unwanted fat is a problem that many of us deal with throughout our lives. Often time simply dieting, and exercising does not work to eliminate that stubborn fat. If you are looking for a solution to this problem, there are two options you should consider: AirSculpt and CoolSculpting.


When considering AirSculpt vs. CoolSculpting there are many pros and cons.  Here we have compared those pros and cons so you can determine which treatment is best for you.


What is CoolSculpting?


CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical fat reduction treatment. It works by freezing away fat cells, killing them off. This leaves the body looking smooth and toned. The fat cells are processed out the body over a two-to-eight-week period following treatment through natural means. Exercise helps with this process as well.  It is especially effective in the stomach, waist, and buttock areas.


The Pros of CoolSculpting


The main pro of CoolSculpting is that the treatment is noninvasive. If you choose to be treated with CoolSculpting there is no worry about surgery or the potential side effects of surgery. Additionally, there is no downtime following treatment. Another plus is that treatment sessions are relatively short lasting between 30 and 60 minutes. The treatment also kills the fat cells, meaning that with proper dieting and exercise following the treatment the effects of the treatment are permanent.


The Cons of CoolSculpting


There are some minor cons and major cons of CoolSculpting. The first of the minor cons is that CoolSculpting is not for everyone. It is intended for those that have problem areas despite dieting and exercise. Additionally, there are some potential side effects.


These include redness, swelling, bruising and reduced sensation in the treated area. Although these side effects are common and easily manageable. There are some more potential major cons to CoolSculpting.


Although rare, CoolSculpting can cause a reaction called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia. This condition is not dangerous, but it causes the treated fat cells to grow rather than shrink, which is the opposite of the desired effect of CoolSculpting.


What is AirSculpt?


AirSculpt is a marketing name for a minimally invasive liposuction treatment. The treatment is still a liposuction, but a lot less invasive than normal liposuction. It uses a small incision in combination with a small vacuum to suck fat out of a target area. The opening is smaller than a pencil eraser.



The Pros of AirSculpt


There are some benefits to AirSculpt vs. CoolSculpting. The main draw from AirSculpt is that the fat can be transferred from one part of the body to another. The fat can be used to increase breast size, or in a HipFlip™, or AirSculpt® Power Brazilian Butt Lift™. Since it uses the body’s own fat it looks and feels natural.



The Cons of AirSculpt


The cons are that in comparison to CoolSculpting, which has no downtime, AirSculpt has at least 24 hours of downtime, and up to 72. There is also the issue that while it is minimally invasive, it is still invasive. That means that there is some risk of side effects. There’s always the risk of infection, or internal damage. One of the boasts of AirSculpt is that the treatment leaves only a mark the size of a freckle, but it still leaves some mark.


What is Laser Lipo?


There is a third answer that can solve the AirSculpt vs CoolSculpting debate. Laser Lipo with Venus Bliss is a great way for everyone to remove unwanted fat. Laser lipo uses low level lasers to melt the fat cells beneath the skin. The melted fat is turned into glycerides and fatty acids. The body then transfers this deconstructed fat to the muscles where it is then worked off through exercise. Because the treatment is noninvasive, there is no downtime. You can leave the medspa and go about your normal routine.


Laser Lipo with Venus Bliss is superior to both AirSculpt and CoolSculpting. When compared to both, laser lipo is proven to be effective, and there are no possible major side effects. Laser lipo accomplishes the same thing as CoolSculpting, but there is no chance of an increase in fat due to paradoxical adipose hyperplasia. Laser lipo is also significantly cheaper than CoolSculpting.


CoolSculpting can cost upwards of $4,000 whereas at LightRx the average treatment is $99.


Compared to AirSculpt laser lipo is entirely noninvasive. There is nothing inserted into the skin. There is also no downtime. Laser lipo has no risk of any serious side effects, and you can leave our clinic and return to your everyday activities. Laser lipo is also just as effective as AirSculpt, so you are not sacrificing effectiveness for convenience.
