EmSculpt vs CoolSculpting

EmSculpt vs CoolSculpting


There are a number of new and sleek ways that technology is changing the way that you can improve your aesthetics. If fat reduction treatment is something, you are interested in pursuing then there are few options to choose from. Many of them promise to sculpt your body to what you want it to look like. Here we are comparing EmSculpt vs. Coolsculpting.


What is Coolsculpting?


Coolsculpting is a nonsurgical procedure that is designed to freeze away fat cells and give a smooth, toned appearance. It is especially effective in the stomach, waist, and buttock areas. The fat cells are frozen and thus killed during the process and the body then processes out the fat over a two-to-eight-week period.


The Pros of CoolSculpting


The process is rather simple, the physician attaches the applicator to the desired area of the patient’s body and starts the machine. The patient may feel a slight cold and sucking sensation before the area numbs. The process can take around 30 to 60 minutes and typically has no adverse effect on the patient and thus the patient has no downtime and can return immediately back to their daily lives.


Since the fat cells are killed the results of the procedure are permanent if the patient continues proper diet and exercise. Coolsculpting is not for everyone, it is intended for those that have problem spots despite regular exercising and a good diet.


The Cons of CoolSculpting


Coolsculpting is not without its drawbacks and some side effects. Some of the more common side effects include redness, swelling, bruising and reduced sensation in the treated area. These side effects are common and easily manageable, however, CoolSculpting can have more serious and severe side effects including extreme cases of the more common side effects and bloating along the contact area.

Another occurrence is what is known as 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. These fat cells then require a separate procedure, such as traditional liposuction, to remove. This would be costly and open the door to the risks posed by liposuction such as infection, scarring, and a period of necessary recovery time.


What is Emsculpt?


EmSculpt is the use of electromagnetic energy to promote muscle toning and fat burning. It is a non-invasive treatment. The electromagnetic energy causes the muscles to contract and uses the body’s natural ability to strengthen itself. These contractions are called supramaximal contractions that are much stronger than what our body is normally capable of.


The Pros of EmSculpt


The treatment process is simple. The contractions tone the muscle just as it would as if you were working out. The muscles contract around 20,000 times in just 30 minutes. The fat is burned by the muscles because they need energy to contract. The best part of this is that it is not an invasive treatment, which means that there is no downtime following the treatment.


The Cons of EmSculpt


The main con for EmSculpt is that is not for everyone. EmSculpt works best for those near or at their target weight and only want to tone up a target area. It is not for someone that wants to lose weight or looking to remove any significant amount of fat. Additionally, there could be some soreness or fatigue following treatment.


What is Laser Lipo?


A third option to consider in EmSculpt vs. CoolSculpting is laser lipo. Laser Lipo with Venus Bliss is a great way 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. In EmSculpt vs. CoolSculpting, both have cons, whereas laser lipo does not have any true downsides.


Laser Lipo is superior to both EmSculpt and CoolSculpting. When compared to CoolSculpting, laser lipo is much safer, and there are no possible major side effects. Laser lipo accomplishes the same thing as CoolSculpting, but there is no chance of the fat growing back 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.


When compared to EmSculpt laser lipo is better because it can work for anyone, not just fit people that are near their goal. If you are looking to lose weight in a target area, and dieting and exercising is not working, then laser lipo is a great option, regardless of how close you are to your target goal. Additionally, the lasers kill the fat cells, making it harder for you to gain fat back following the procedure, as opposed to EmSculpt that just reduces the fat.
