If you’re searching for a non-invasive body sculpting treatment to help you lose excess fat, you’re probably seeking the treatment option that best meets your needs. CoolSculpting® and HotSculpting® are two of the most popular procedures for removing unwanted fat and transforming common trouble spots, and because they are both non-invasive, all of this can be accomplished without the need for incisions or anesthesia, and neither involves any downtime for the patient following treatment.
Even though both methods burn fat cells and re-contour undesirable body tissues, there are several variations, the most notable of which is that one utilizes heat and the other uses cold.
During a CoolSculpting® procedure, a curved applicator drags fatty tissue in between two cooling plates, and patients may experience a tugging or pulling sensations, followed by a noticeable cooling of the tissue. Depending on the area having addressed, each CoolSculpting® session can last between 35 and 60 minutes, and the client is able to continue their day after treatment. The body’s natural detox pathways break down and remove the frozen fat cells.
HotSculpting, also known as SculpSure, is yet another non-invasive body sculpting procedure that employs hyperthermic lasers to reduce excess fat and tighten skin. A unique applicator with four paddles is held to the area to be treated – belly, flanks, back, thighs, or chin – during a HotSculpting treatment to selectively heat and kill subcutaneous fat cells. To assist the patient feel comfortable and safe, the warming feeling is combined with a cooling effect. As with CoolSculpting®, the killed fat cells are gradually removed from the body over the next few weeks and months by the lymphatic system, and patients will see visible slimming and toning results after around four weeks. HotSculpting treatment takes 25 minutes, and patients may resume their usual daily activities right afterward.
When exploring non-invasive body sculpting choices, it’s natural to wonder, “which is better — heat or cold?” Both CoolSculpting® and HotSculpting procedures are non-invasive and burn fat cells beneath the surface of skin; they have also been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are acknowledged as safer options to liposuction.
HotSculpting utilizes four applicators to concurrently target numerous areas of undesirable fat, whereas CoolSculpting® uses a single applicator to target a single concentrated region of fat. HotSculpting avoids the straining, tugging, numbness, and bruising that are typically associated with CoolSculpting® treatments, making the experience more pleasant for the patient.
HotSculpting is a more adaptable choice since it is not limited to small “pinchable” patches of fat like CoolSculpting®. Significant progress can be visible after just one HotSculpting treatment, and while the overall outcome may be similar to CoolSculpting®, patients will require at least two to three treatments, and the sessions will be longer.
Consequently, it is up to an individual to determine which choice best meets their needs and personal objectives, as well as which is the most cost-effective for people.
