Deciding whether or not to go under the knife is always a difficult decision to make. The thought of not liking the outcome or being left with visible scars are a freighting thought.
Now with non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments we can put most of our worries to rest. These treatments aren’t just putting people at ease but they are also producing great results that leave many patients speechless.
CoolSculpting and EmSculpt are leading the charge in this new age revolution. Each treatment produces similar results but which one should you choose? If they are both on the same playing field how can one choose between the two?
Well you can do a ton of research on both products and make your decision from there or you can keep reading and we’ll tell you the differences between the two.
CoolSculpting vs. Emsculpt: Safety
Both of these treatments have their benefits, but one thing that is absolutely the same is that they are both very safe and effective. Both of these treatments have been FDA-approved.
Numerous test studies and patients have been on the record stating that they have experienced no issues with either product. CoolSculpting has been available for well over five years, while Emsculpt has been studied for over two years and has not shown any signs of being unsafe.
As much as we would love to give one credit over the other we simply can’t. This category ends in a tie.
CoolSculpting vs. Emsculpt: Results
Emsculpt is clearly like no other treatment. It gives patients the opportunity to not only reduce fat, but also build muscle. In fact it can cut down your fat by up to 19 percent while increasing your muscle mass by 16 percent.
This treatment can also raise the buttocks as well. It not only raises the buttocks, but it also makes it rounder, fuller and firmer. The two main areas that Emsculpt is used is the buttocks and abdomen.
Although it is truly one of a kind by reducing fat, CoolSculpting cannot compare to Emsculpt in terms of building muscle.
For those that are looking to achieve more muscle and a more toned look while targeting the abdomen area and buttocks, then hands down Emsculpt is exactly what you need. Emsculpt gets the edge over CoolSculpting in terms of results.
CoolSculpting vs. Emsculpt: Comfort
Coolsculpting, as its name would suggest, places an emphasis on cold. The way the treatment works is that it kills fat cells with the use of cold temperatures. Although the treatment isn’t painful, it also isn’t exactly easy to deal with either.
The targeted area will be numb from the cold and patients have reported that those cold temperatures can be a bit uncomfortable. Overall the comfort for this treatment is good, but it can take a bit of getting used to.
With Emsculpt there is no pain or discomfort experienced at all. Patients have reported no discomfort during their sessions. After treatment, patients have said that the targeted area is a bit sore, but it feels as though you have just had a good workout at the gym and did not affect them in any way after all.
Although CoolSculpting has minimal discomfort, Emsculpt seemingly has none at all and the clear choice for comfort is Emsculpt.
CoolSculpting vs. Emsculpt: Time Commitment
This one is simple. One treatment for CoolSculpting lasts roughly 35-60 minutes. The time largely depends on the the size of the hand piece that is used.
Most treatments will take place about two-to-six times, which are spaced out about one month apart to achieve the best results. Emsculpt takes no longer than 30 minutes each with four sessions being the recommend amount to see the most eye-catching results. Those treatments can be performed within two-to-three days of each other.
The choice is clear. Although CoolCculpting is a fast treatment, Emsculpt is a much faster option.
CoolScultping vs. Emsculpt: Downtime & Side Effects
Both treatments have been reported to have one minor side effect. With CoolSculpting patients have experienced a numbing sensation and redness. That numbness can last up to hours after treatment. Although it is not reported to be a huge issue for patients it is something to be wary of.
Emsculpt post treatment can make the targeted area feel sore. Patients have reported that the soreness is not an overwhelming feeling as it is similar to a workout level feeling. Both treatments have no downtime as patients have gotten back to their normal routine right after treatment.
In the case of both treatments there is no downtime or major side effects. Another category which ends in a tie.
CoolSculpting vs. Emsculpt: Candidates & Versatility
Versatility is a category that Emsculpt excels in. Many patients love the thought of being able to target both the midsection and the buttocks and not only melt fat, but build muscle.
Emsculpt does a terrific job in the areas that it targets and can be a great option for more patients than CoolSculpting.
