CoolSculpt, truSculpt & BodyFX are non-invasive, non-surgical FDA-approved treatments that help with the reduction and appearance of fat. While all treatments deliver results, it is important to understand the key differences to help determine which treatment is best suited for your body type and desired body goals.
CoolSculpt is a treatment that uses extreme cold to freeze fat cells. During the treatment, the frigid temperature causes fat cells to die. Over time the body will naturally eliminate the dead fat cells. This treatment is suited for persons with areas of skin that are easily “pinchable” as the CoolSculpt machine needs to grab onto larger areas of skin and unwanted fat. The flatter and tighter the skin, the more difficult it will be to apply the CoolSculpt machine. This treatment is delivered by a machine (no technician required) and is not designed for skin-tightening. The length of the treatment will vary depending on body area(s). Patients can expect to experience the following sensations during the treatment process: intense cold, pulling from suction, and light-to-mild tingling post-treatment. Results are seen in as little as 3 weeks, with the most dramatic results seen after 2 months. There is no recovery or downtime.
truSculpt is designed to sculpt and contour the body. A small handheld device is used to transmit radio frequency energy. This energy heats up fat cells under the skin’s surface, causing them to shrink and continue shrinking after the treatment. Eventually, these fat cells are naturally eliminated by the body. The device will gently glide over the treatment area and the temperature of the skin will rise but should remain comfortable for the duration of the treatment. Patients often express that the treatment feels like a hot stone massage. Results are typically seen after just one treatment and more noticeable results appear within 6-8 weeks. Because there is no recovery or downtime, patients can resume daily activity following the treatment. It is best-suited for individuals who are thinner or want to enhance areas of the body where the CoolSculpting machine cannot reach. TruSculpt is also used for spot treatments, as the machine can cover small surfaces as well.
TruSculpt offers a quick, one-time treatment solution to sculpt and contour the body while reducing stubborn fat. The small handheld device offers a comfortable, precise treatment for large to small surface areas while delivering immediate to quick results. TruSculpt is also a great option for individuals looking to target a specific spot on the body.
