Eliminating stubborn fatty areas that seem to persist regardless of diet and exercise have never been easier! Thanks to technological advancements in the body sculpting and contouring industry, many non-invasive fat reducing treatments have hit the market.
Two of the most popular innovative treatments are CoolSculpting and SculpSure. Both of these treatments offer non-invasive and non-surgical fat reduction and body contouring.
There are some differences between the two treatments though – one freezes the fat away, and the other melts the fat away. Thus, if you are considering a non-invasive alternative to liposuction to get rid of stubborn fat that clings to the flanks, belly, upper arms, thighs, and back then read on and discover which non-invasive fat reduction treatment may be an option for you.
Non – Surgical Fat Reduction
SculpSure and CoolSculpting are both FDA approved body contouring treatments designed to decrease unwanted body fat. Both SculpSure and CoolSculpting minimise fat by promoting the breakdown of fat cells, which are then metabolised by your body and eliminated.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
During a CoolSculpting treatment when targeting belly fat, the tissue is pulled up into an applicator with a gentle suction mechanism. Cooling is applied to the tissue, effectively freezing the fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues or overlying skin. As soon as the treated area has been cooled down, the applicator is removed. Gradually the body will naturally remove the frozen fat cells.
How Does SculpSure Work?
During treatment flat applicators are placed around the treatment area. Heating is applied using laser technology. The energy from the lasers pierce the skin and heat the underlying layers of subcutaneous fat. Cooling plates are used to minimise heating sensations or discomfort on the skin. The fat cells that have been heated and destroyed will gradually be removed by the body.
