Much has been debated over the past few years about which treatment is best when looking for an alternative to liposuction procedures. And with the slew of recent technological advancements, many options have become available for those who don’t want to go under the knife in order to remove those few extra pounds from unwanted areas. Of the procedures offered to the public, Coolsculpting and Ultrashape Power have emerged as two of the industry’s best. But while they may provide similar services, the process of each is entirely different, and one of them may prove unworthy of your time and money. So which is more likely to give you the results and confidence you strive for?
Coolsculpting is a non-surgical technique that uses handheld technology to locate and destroy fat cells by freezing them below the surface of the skin. Over the course of multiple weeks (or months) and multiple procedures, the frozen fat cells are naturally processed and shed by your body over time, leaving the surrounding healthy cells unharmed.
However, some patients have noted that the procedure can be slightly uncomfortable or even painful as the extreme cold temperatures leave a residual “burning” sensation. The treated area commonly becomes swollen or sensitive to the touch, even weeks following the procedure. Most Coolsculpting procedures include a post-treatment massage to the affected area, meaning pain is a distinct possibility both during and after the treatment.
Much like Coolsculpting, Ultrashape Power is a non-intrusive treatment that locates fat cells without the need to cut or pierce the skin. However unlike Coolsculpting, Ultrashape Power uses pulsed ultrasound energy to heat up the fat cells in order to create vapor cavities within, triggering the fat cells to self-destruct without harming any nearby cells or organs. Results are often noticeable within just a couple weeks compared to months using Coolsculpting.
Ultrashape Power patients have described the process as painless and there is no sensitivity to the treated area post-procedure, meaning the patient can immediately return to their normal schedule. Furthermore, Ultrashape Power is FDA-approved and no side-effects have been discovered over the thousands of cases recorded across the country.
Of course, each process affects everyone differently and anyone interested in either of these procedures should consult with a doctor or certified technician.
