Emsculpt® And CoolSculpting®: What’s The Difference?

Posted April 15, 2014 in CoolSculpting®, EMSCULPT®, by Dr. Fiorillo

2 Minute Read:

Thanks to evolving technology, there is a significant rise in non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments that provide outstanding cosmetic results. We are seeing exciting developments in non-surgical body sculpting with innovative procedures like CoolSculpting® and Emsculpt®.

Emsculpt® and CoolSculpting® are FDA-approved body sculpting treatments that help individuals achieve a slimmer, more contoured, and sleek physique—without the risk or downtime of surgery.

Knowing the difference between the two procedures can help you determine which option is a better fit.

What’s the Difference Between Emsculpt® and CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to freeze fat cells in the treatment area, helping you lose excess fat in that targeted area. The procedure delivers precisely calculated temperatures that freeze and destroy fat cells without damaging the overlying skin. The damaged fat cells are then naturally eliminated by the body over time.

Emsculpt® , on the other hand, uses powerful electro-magnetic energy waves to stimulate the underlying muscles to contract, boosting muscle firmness and strength. The treatment feels like an intensive workout—not the ordinary kind you can achieve in a strength training workout at the gym. It, therefore, targets both fat and muscle in ways you can’t do voluntarily .

Both treatments are fast, effective, safe, and most importantly, require little to no recovery time. Through the help of these body sculpting treatments, individuals can expect long-lasting, effective results with little to no effort.

In fact, you can have them done shortly (a few weeks or months) before a trip, event, or special occasion, and be ready to flaunt your desirable physique in time .

Which Body Contouring Treatment is the Better Option?

Depending on your goals, you will find that each treatment is better suited for certain results . Essentially, Emsculpt® offers muscle definition and mass around the abdomen, buttocks, upper arms, and thighs while helping the body shed fat cells.

If you have stubborn pockets of fat in specific areas resistant to exercise or diet, CoolSculpting® is likely the treatment you should consider.

If your main goal is to remove stubborn fat and gain some muscle definition, combining both treatments can give you the results you desire. CoolSculpting® will minimize the fat layer while Emsculpt® reshapes the physique by toning and strengthening muscles for a slimmer, sculpted appearance.

To achieve optimal results, candidates should have a healthy starting weight.
