CoolSculpting vs. TruSculpt
CoolSculpting is a highly popular non-invasive fat removal procedure. Your med spa provider will use a CoolSculpting machine to hold on to excess fat into a cup-like device. The skin will then receive a cold treatment, which will cause fat cells to freeze and die. These dead cells will be eliminated by the body in 2 to 6 months.
In the case of TruSculpt, the med spa provider will use a radio frequency energy delivering handheld device. This will heat up your fat cells and cause them to shrink and eventually get eliminated from the body. Both treatments are safe to be repeated.
Talk to your treatment provider during the initial consultation to know more about CoolSculpting and TruSculpt. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides non-surgical body contouring to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Candidacy for CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting as a med spa procedure has a wide variety of applications. However, it is recommended for people that have enough fat to be pinched. Fat needs to be sucked into the CoolSculpting cup device for the cold treatment to begin.
People with excess fat on their backs or with bra bulge make great candidates for CoolSculpting. This is true even if there is only a small amount of fat that can be pinched.
Candidacy for TruSculpt
TruSculpt med spa device doesn’t work like CoolSculpting. It doesn’t need to grab excess fat and skin. TruSculpt makes use of a small handheld device. There is no need for pulling fat into a suction cup. It works best for people with less fat or those looking for treatment in areas where fat grabbing is impossible.
For instance, fat in underarms and shoulders can be difficult to get inside a CoolSculpting suction cup. TruSculpt can be the preferred method for spot treatments because of its smaller surface. The device can also be used for reducing back fat and bra bulge with its targeted focus.
Results of CoolSculpting
In CoolSculpting, the fat cells are cold treated. They eventually freeze and die. The body goes through its regular process of eliminating the dead cells through natural detoxification, which can take up to two months. You should be able to see initial signs of change within the first three weeks. However, it can take up to six months after the procedure to see final results.
Results of TruSculpt
TruSculpt works differently than CoolSculpting. It triggers the immune system using radio frequency energy to heat fat cells. This leads to the breakdown of fat cells in targeted areas. However, it can take 4 – 8 weeks for you to notice initial results.
TruSculpt works slower than CoolSculpting. It can be months before you see final results. It is also important to note that TruSculpt doesn’t work on a large area at once. Hence, results may come in slower due to procedural limitations.
TruSculpt and CoolSculpting are both proven to be effective methods of reducing fat. However, each has its own pros and cons and is best suited for different goals, body types and body parts.
