CoolSculpting or UltraShape Power Sarasota which is right for you? Plenty of people want to reduce the appearance of fat around the thighs, abdomen, and stomach without undergoing invasive procedures. CoolSculpting and UltraShape are two non-invasive treatments that target unwanted fat without the need for injections, anesthesia or recovery time. However, there are key differences in how these two treatments work. Understanding each technique can help you decide.
Both procedures help shape and contour the thighs, love handles, and abdomen. They reduce the appearance of stubborn fat that is difficult to remove even with diet and exercise. The result is a slimmer contour and tighter, firmer skin. In Sarasota area, you have many choices so it’s important to get the facts.
CoolSculpting and UltraShape Power are both FDA-approved and the treatments require no downtime or recovery time. With both treatments, it can take a few weeks to see the full results so if you are preparing for an event, you’ll want to schedule your treatments a few weeks in advance. Proper diet and exercise are important to help maintain the results of both procedures.
The key difference between these two treatments is how they work. CoolSculpting uses Cryolipolysis (freezing) technology while UltraShape Power uses ultrasound to slim and contour the body. During the treatment, precisely controlled wands target fat cells which then begin the process of natural cell removal. The fat cells break down over a period of a few weeks and the procedure does not cause damage to the surrounding tissue. CoolSculpting generally removes about 25-30% of fat in the treatment area. CoolSculpting Power has shown up to a 32% increase over CoolSculpting in reducing fat cells.
UltraShape power patients typically see result quicker than CoolSculpting patients. While UltraShape Power takes 3 treatments, CoolSculpting patients may need to have up to 6 treatments to see the results they want.
Another key difference is the amount of treatment time they require. CoolSculpting requires more treatment time than UltraShape. CoolSculpting treatment takes about two to six hours depending on which area is being treated while an UltraShape treatment takes about one to one and a half hours.
With CoolSculpting, there is also the possibility of some discomfort during recovery which does not occur with UltraShape.
