Ultrasonic Cavitation vs CoolSculpting

Cavitation vs CoolSculpting


There are many ways to deal with unwanted fat. If dieting and exercising does not work for you and you have begun to look for alternatives, it quickly becomes apparent that there is a plethora of treatments available. You may be considering Ultrasonic cavitation vs. Coolsculpting.  Here we have compared their 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 Ultrasonic Cavitation?


Ultrasonic cavitation, also known as ultrasonic lipolysis, is a treatment used to contour the body using ultrasound waves that break apart the fat. It is designed to help those that are near their target weight and are in good overall health. It is a nonsurgical treatment option for fat removal.


The Pros of Ultrasonic Cavitation


The main draw of ultrasonic cavitation is that it is noninvasive. There is no risk of side effects such as infection, internal damage, or scarring. Additionally, treatments are easy and quick. Often, they can be completed in under an hour. There are also some forms of the treatment that can be administered at home. Another positive for this treatment is that it uses the body’s natural processes to get rid of the fat after it has been broken down.


The Cons of Ultrasonic Cavitation


The main con against ultrasonic cavitation is that the science is still out in terms of its effectiveness. When considering ultrasonic cavitation vs. CoolSculpting, CoolSculpting has been proven to be effective. While there is some evidence to support that ultrasonic cavitation is effective, there simply has not been enough trials to demonstrate the effectiveness of the treatment.



What is Laser Lipo?


There is a third answer that can solve the ultrasonic cavitation 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 is superior to both ultrasonic cavitation 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 ultrasonic cavitation laser lipo is FDA approved and clinically proven to be effective. It is also effective for a wider range of people. While ultrasonic cavitation is effective only for those within 15 pounds of their target weight, laser lipo can help those at any point in their fat loss journey. Additionally, laser lipo uses the same natural processes to remove fat as ultrasonic cavitation, just more effectively.
