Many women and men struggle with unwanted fat, especially in their mid-section, that does not respond to diet and exercise alone.
Fortunately, there are a number of body contouring procedures that can eliminate these stubborn bulges without surgery or downtime.
CoolSculpting is probably the most well-known treatment for non-surgical fat reduction in the abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms, and chin. However, the procedure can exclude certain individuals that have areas of fat that are too large or too small for a CoolSculpting applicator.
As a result, these patients are turning to truSculpt 3D to painlessly destroy fat pockets on the abdomen and flanks.
The treatment has been shown to remove up to 24 percent of fat in the targeted area, rivaling the effects of CoolSculpting. It can also tighten skin and improve the appearance of cellulite, while CoolSculpting does not.
truSculpt 3D and CoolSculpting target fat in different ways
While CoolSculpting uses very cold temperatures to freeze and kill fat cells, truSculpt 3D employs monopolar radiofrequency.
This technology allows the truSculpt 3D system to penetrate deeper to fat layers, while keeping skin at lower temperatures. This feature means increased efficacy and improved patient comfort.
Additionally, truSculpt 3D’s internal monitoring system uniformly heats adipose tissue and automatically reduces the temperature if it gets too hot. Consequently, ensuring minimal pain and discomfort during the procedure.
truSculpt 3D requires a shorter treatment time than CoolSculpting
The duration of both body contouring procedures is based on a timed treatment cycle. For CoolSculpting, each cycle is 35 minutes with an updated device and 60 minutes with an older system.
On the other hand, truSculpt 3D’s glide protocol enables the device to cover larger areas than CoolSculpting and only 15 minutes per treatment cycle.
truSculpt 3D is performed by a provider, while CoolSculpting is a hands-free treatment
A provider performs the entire truSculpt 3D procedure and is there to receive patient feedback and can make necessary adjustments per the individual’s request.
Comparatively, a technician attaches the CoolSculpting handpiece to the treatment area and the device completes the procedure on its own.
Therefore, patients are left unattended for much of the CoolSculpting process.
For a better understanding of which treatment is right for you, schedule an appointment with a trustworthy medical office that offers body contouring options.
