What Is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting is a breakthrough, non-invasive procedure that uses patented cooling technology to eliminate fat without surgery.
This clinically proven technique is designed to selectively reduce the fat in problem areas that has proven resistant to reduction through diet and exercise. CoolSculpting gently cools targeted cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of these unwanted fat cells.
CoolSculpting is the first and only nonsurgical procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas that include muffin tops, love handles and back fat. Developed in 2005 and backed by strong clinical research, CoolSculpting is based on Cryolipolysis (cold lipolysis)-the use of precisely controlled cooling to remove fat.
Based on the scientific principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the overlying skin and surrounding tissues, CoolSculpting reduces the temperature of fat cells in the treated area.
This is intended to promote fat cell elimination through a natural biological process known as apoptosis, without causing scar tissue or damage to the skin, nerves or surrounding tissues.
Patients generally start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months.
But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to six months after treatment.
CoolSculpting vs. Kybella
Like many women and men, you may struggle with stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to clean eating and regular gym sessions.
Fortunately, there are a number of non-surgical fat removal treatments, including CoolSculpting and Kybella, that can help you achieve a leaner and more toned appearance.
If you are considering these two options, continue reading to learn all about CoolSculpting vs. Kybella, and what you can expect from each procedure.
CoolSculpting vs. Kybella – Treatment Areas
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that is FDA-cleared to treat the abdomen, flanks, inner thighs, outer thighs, banana roll, back, upper arms, chin, and jawline.
It can also be used off-label on the male chest, knees, and under arms.
Kybella is an injectable treatment approved by the FDA to address submental fullness, otherwise known as a double chin. It can also be used off-label to reduce excess fat in the arms, love handles, knees, and bra line.
CoolSculpting vs. Kybella – How Do They Work?
CoolSculpting delivers controlled cooling through a rounded applicator in order to freeze and destroy fat cells under the skin. In the weeks after treatment, fat cell remnants are naturally eliminated from the body via the lymphatic system.
Kybella is made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. It is injected into localized fat deposits in order to dissolve unwanted fat cells, which are then metabolized by the body.
CoolSculpting vs. Kybella – Is There Any Downtime?
CoolSculpting and Kybella both require little to no downtime.
Following a CoolSculpting treatment, patients may note redness, tenderness, swelling, bruising, and numbness. These effects should not interfere with daily activities and resolve on their own in one-to-two weeks.
After undergoing Kybella injections, it’s not uncommon to experience tenderness, bruising, temporary numbness and redness. Temporary swelling is also likely, especially when Kybella is applied under the chin.
However, post-treatment, patients are free to go about their day as they normally would.
CoolSculpting vs. Kybella – How Soon Can You See Results?
Women and men can expect to note visible fat reduction with four-to-six weeks of CoolSculpting, and final results within eight-to-12 weeks.
Kybella produces noticeable slimming in two-to-four weeks.
To achieve optimal outcomes, most individuals require a series of treatments for both fat-busting procedures.
COOLTONE VS. COOLSCULPTING
While they are both manufactured by Allergan and have cool in their name, CoolTone and CoolSculpting are not one in the same. They are two separate body contouring treatments, with unique capabilities and treatment indications.
Continue reading to learn the difference between CoolTone vs. CoolSculpting and which option may be best-suited to your needs and goals.
What is CoolTone?
CoolTone is a noninvasive body contouring treatment that’s FDA-approved to strengthen, tone, and firm muscles in the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. It is an excellent option for fit women and men who have been unable to develop and define muscles through a healthy diet and regular exercise.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a noninvasive fat removal treatment that uses controlled cooling to target and freeze stubborn bulges throughout the body. It offers patients a safe, effective, and nonsurgical way to slim and reshape trouble spots that have not responded to diet and exercise.
CoolTone vs. CoolSculpting – Which Is Right for Me?
When deciding between CoolTone vs. CoolSculpting, it’s important to determine your specific concerns and goals.
For patients who struggle with localized fat deposits, CoolSculpting is an ideal solution. It can eliminate up to 24% of fat cells in the targeted area, produce circumferential reduction, and improve the way that your clothes look and fit.
CoolTone, on the other hand, is well-suited to lean individuals who want build muscle, add definition, and take their physique to the next level.
In other words, CoolSculpting is recommended for patients who wish to focus on fat reduction, and CoolTone is recommended for patients who are most concerned about muscle building and toning.
But what if you’d like to burn fat and build muscle? Many patients choose to undergo CoolSculpting as well as CoolTone for the most comprehensive body contouring solution.
