CoolSculpting vs. VelaShape Body Contouring

CoolSculpting vs. VelaShape Body Contouring

Accumulation of unwanted fat cells in certain areas of the body is a common concern among both women and men. This may happen due to hereditary factors, sedentary lifestyle, fat-rich diet, disease, or other reasons. Many of the patients are reluctant to choose plastic surgery options such as liposuction to get rid of excess fat deposits.

A Plastic Surgeon on a Higher Plateau

In such cases, the cosmetic surgeon may recommend a non-surgical fat reduction procedure such as CoolSculpting or VelaShape. These are innovative procedures to make the patient lose fat without any cuts or incisions or even injections. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides these advanced non-surgical fat reduction procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.


CoolSculpting is a unique fat reduction technique that has revolutionized the field of non-surgical aesthetics. It involves a highly innovative cooling process that is designed to freeze the fat and cause it to disintegrate and get eliminated from the body in a natural way. The patient does not have to go through any prolonged period of preparation or treatment, and the downtime involved is negligible.

CoolSculpting avoids the risks that are typically associated with a surgical procedure, and achieves more subtle and natural-looking results. It will take about two to three months for the results to be established with CoolSculpting, but a patient will be able to lose about half an inch from their waistline after just a single treatment session lasting less than an hour. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for this procedure.

Multiple treatment sessions are usually recommended to achieve the desired degree of fat reduction. Most common areas with stubborn fat deposits that are treated with CoolSculpting include hips, thighs, abdomen, back, flanks, upper arms, calves, neck, and cheeks. Patients should know that CoolSculpting is not specifically designed to achieve skin tightening or remove cellulite, but it may provide marginal benefits in this aspect as the fat reduction occurs.

VelaShape procedure is also aimed at improving body contours in specific areas of the body. However, as compared to CoolSculpting, VelaShape is based on a radically opposite approach to improve the contours. This technique combines radio frequency (RF) waves, laser energy, and suctioning massage to reduce fat tissue and improve the contours.

VelaShape is primarily used to reduce the appearance of cellulite in areas such as the abdomen, love handles, buttocks, thighs, upper arms, and love handles. The procedure provides a firming and lifting impact to the skin because of the mechanical tissue manipulation, which leads to enhanced circulation and lymphatic drainage.

VelaShape feels like a warm deep tissue massage, as against CoolSculpting, which exposes the targeted areas to very cold temperatures. Visible results in terms of smoother skin can be seen after the first treatment session in most cases. Three to six treatments may be required overall to achieve optimal results. Patients should consult with the surgeon carefully in order to determine the body contouring procedure that will be most suited to meet their personal aesthetic needs.
