CoolSculpting Vs. LipoSonix
Should I Get CoolSculpting or Liposonix?
CoolSculpting/Zeltiq is a non-surgical option for those wishing to reduce fat with minimal downtime that yields progressive and optimal results. This procedure, also known as CoolSculpting, was developed at Wellman Laser Laboratories at Harvard Medical School is based on research that has shown fat cells are more vulnerable to cold temperature than any other surrounding tissue. Extreme cold temperatures are emitted through cooling plates that suction the targeted area for an hour, during which time fat cells are turned from a soft to solid form. Literally freezing fat cells through prolonged controlled cooling, allows the body to naturally metabolize frozen fat out of the body. Results begin to show in three weeks with progressive improvements within four months post-treatment.
Comparing Liposonix and CoolSculpting
Liposonix is another non-invasive fat reduction procedure that greatly reduces recovery time, leaving no scarring and progressive results. Dr. Rokhsar uses the Liposonix ultrasound creates a powerful thermal effect that focuses at specific depths in fatty layers, safely destroying fat without damaging surrounding tissue in a 30 to 60 minute session.
Zeltiq utilizes a cool technique to eliminate fat cells, while Liposonix uses thermal energy to break down fat cells and naturally process the fat through the body, providing patients of either care with gradual and progressive fat reduction improvements.
Both procedures are used to target areas such as:
- Love Handles
- Bra line
Zeltiq and Liposonix are not a solution for those that are overweight or obese, but rather a body sculpting procedure that provides modest reduction in fat volume.
