Technology comparison can be a daunting task for patients evaluating body shaping options. But understanding the available procedures is critical to making an informed decision. Unfortunately, a large corporate marketing budgetcan createmass brand awareness, but itis not necessarily a reflection of quality or patient satisfaction. As an example, we provide a comparative overview of a well-known brand below:
The CoolSculpting procedure involves directed cryolipolysis (freezing) of targeted fat cells. Cooling is achieved by compressing the specified area between two applicator paddles. Unfortunately, the paddles are not suitable for every area or body type, thereby limiting its effectiveness. When used for its defined application, the CoolSculpting procedure destroys fat cells within the compressed application area. The frozen cells are subsequently metabolized and removed by the body’s natural processes in time.It is important to note that individual fat cell response to freezing can be variable,which may result in an uneven appearance even after more than one treatment.
Course of Therapy
Generally a series of treatments is required for best results.
Typical side effects include redness and bruising, numbness, sensitivity, and other unusual sensations in the treatment area. Most patients report resolution in days to weeks.
Ridges of fat above the treatment area have been reported and must be addressed with an additional procedure. Uneven fat reduction and topical skin laxity are also common complications of cryolipolysis. This is a very important aesthetic consideration because even after destruction of fat cells, if your skin is loose and the surface is lumpy, you will be dissatisfied with the results.
Because a typical course of treatment requires more than one CoolSculpting session, in addition to any procedures that may be required to achieve the final results you seek, this approach can get very costly.
The SafeSculpt Laser Liposuction integrates two of the most advanced body sculpting technologies available to provide a comprehensive solution to safe, permanent fat removal. The combined approach also ensures the most aesthetically pleasing results from a single course of treatment. Each regimen consists of a single ultrasound energy treatment efficiently delivered to any number of trouble spots. The ultrasound effectively melts unwanted fat, which is immediately removed for asmooth, sculpted outward appearance. The second step involves SmartLipo laser technology, which painlessly stimulates new collagen production. This finishing touch results in smoother, tighter skin, a more even appearance, and faster recovery overall.
Course of Therapy
Only one dual-treatment of UltraSculpt Ultrasound and SmartLipo Laser per body area is needed for optimal results.
Mild redness or tenderness. Most patients report resolution in 1-2 days.
