CoolSculpting vs. Thermage: How To Pick The Right Body Contouring Treatment For You
How body contouring can enhance your fitness results
We get it… diet and exercise can only do so much. Stubborn fat deposits and loose skin can make crossing the fitness finish line feel impossible. Body contouring treatments can enhance your regimen and help you achieve your desired results.
With numerous body contouring options and diverse technologies available, choosing the right treatment can be confusing. Afterall, “body contouring” can include everything from cellulite reduction and skin tightening, to fat reduction and muscle tightening. But fear not! We’ve got you covered with our two most popular non-invasive treatments – Thermage and CoolSculpting.
Tighten up with Thermage
Thermage FLX skin-tightening uses radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen production deep within the dermis, so you can say hello to tighter, firmer skin! It’s perfect if you’ve recently lost weight or had a baby, and can be performed on most areas of the body, from the abs and arms to the neck and face. A single treatment offers significant results that can last up to 10 years. Plus, additional treatments continue to slow down and even pause the aging process.
Reduce fat with CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is perfect for those with stubborn fat deposits that won’t budge no matter how many crunches you complete. This temperature-based treatment uses controlled cooling to permanently freeze fat cells. The body then eliminates the dead fat cells over time. Too cool!
CoolSculpting is designed for patients leading healthy and active lifestyles, just looking for small changes to problem areas. If you have pinchable, subcutaneous fat, you’re a good candidate. Most patients achieve significant results in anywhere from four weeks to three months, with the body continuing to flush fat cells for four-to-six months after the treatment.
When to choose CoolSculpting, Thermage or neither
It all comes down to your goals! While non-invasive body contouring treatments are a great option for refining small changes, they’re not a weight-loss solution. For more dramatic results, especially in fat elimination, liposuction may be your best bet. But remember, it comes with increased recovery time and higher risk of serious complications.
