New Year Resolution: A slimmer me.
Do I get CoolSculpting® or SculpSure®, Vanquish or Liposuction? I am so confused. What is best for me?
A new year a new start! Every year I create a list of resolutions that I would love to achieve throughout the year; and losing some weight or looking my best is on the list. Some people may think is all vain and superficial thinking but caring some extra pounds can have an impact on our health specially if we already suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, and other medical conditions.
I have been so interested in getting a non-invasive procedure for years, but I was not sure which one to get, there a so many different medical devices out there that I felt overwhelmed. I went to a few consultations, saw multiple before and after pictures of clients like me that went through different treatments but I felt the need to do some research on my own, so this is what I did and what I got.
Here is the list of a few of the most popular non-invasive procedures for removal of adipose tissue (fat reduction) Let’s compare CoolSculpting vs. SculpSure vs. Vanquish vs. Zerona.
CoolSculpting® is a noninvasive procedure, it is the only FDA approved treatment that kills the fat cells by freezing them to the point of elimination. There are multiple studies showing that cool sculpting has long-term results. CoolSculpting® treatments do not require any recovery time, there are no incisions, minimal bruising, and discomfort post-procedure. You can resume your normal activities the same day! Another important thing to consider when it comes to doing a non-invasive fat removal treatment is laser safety features on all this medical device. CoolSculpting® has the safeties, the device will turn off itself if there are any possible complications during the treatment this will prevent any unwanted post-treatment complications.
CoolSculpting® is a device with more than seven million treatments worldwide! Wow, lots of people have tried the device.
I went to Real Self.com and reviewed what other patients like me have to say about all the different fat reduction devices and CoolSculpting® has as per today 01/21/19 the highest percentage of patients than went under treatment.
CoolSculpting®: 4348 reviews with 75% of clients/ patients who recommend the treatment.
Zerona: 149 reviews with 46% of clients/ patients who recommend the treatment, not many…
SculpSure®: 814 reviews with 84% of clients/ patients who recommend the treatment
Vanquish: 219 reviews with 64% of clients/ patients who recommend the treatment
Real Self is a website were patients who went under treatment can leave a review about their experience, this is an awesome way to help others to make the right decision!
Zerona is FDA approved as well, Zerona uses cold laser to disrupt fat cells, but this approval is for non-invasive body contouring and not for fat reduction. The studies about this non-invasive fat reduction method indicate that the results are not long term as cool sculpting… good to know right?
Zerona also requires multiple treatments. Clients usually need between 5-6 treatments; the treatments are performed every two weeks and each treatment takes about 40 minutes.
SculpSure® uses a laser technique using heat to eliminate unwanted fat. SculpSure® has good reviews as well as cool sculpting and will also give you long term results, but a few things must be considered prior to choosing the proper treatment. If you have a low pain tolerance or sensitive skin; I want to let you know that SculpSure® must reach a fairly high temperature to work and this can be quite uncomfortable. It heats fat cells to about 107 degrees, according to the manufacture. CoolSculpting®, on the other hand, is less uncomfortable, since the cooling action will have a numbing effect. Usually, in the first 3-7 minutes, clients experience some mild cooling sensation then it goes numb!!! yeah!!!
Also, let’s consider how much fat you’re hoping to reduce, a candidate who has more fat to remove, CoolSculpting® would be the better option, since the treatment needs a solid pinch of fat to latch onto. If you are a candidate who is in good physical shape and you just have a small area that you cannot lose even if you go to the gym every day, then SculpSure® is a great option.
Vanquish is an FDA approved device. The form of energy that this device uses is radio-frequency or RF. Vanquish, uses an applicator suspended above an inch from the body, vanquish, emits RF, and heat waves to target fat cells. With Vanquish, clients require a minimum of four treatments, each treatment is spaced a minimum of a week apart.
Ok, now that you have all the information about these medical non-invasive fat reduction treatments, you can make a decision.
