When it comes to noninvasive, non-surgical body contouring treatments, EmSculpt and CoolSculpting are at the top of many people’s lists. Why? It’s simple. With either of these treatments you get results that make an impact, with minimal downtime and no surgical aftercare. It wasn’t always this way. For many years surgical intervention in the form of liposuction was the only way to get rid of stubborn diet and exercise resistant body fat. Now, ever-improving technology makes these noninvasive methods even more popular – and there are no signs of their popularity slowing down.
If you’re a good candidate, non-surgical body sculpting can greatly improve your body – and even your mind because your outlook will change. Can you imagine slipping into the body of your dreams? These treatments work by destroying fat cells and bringing you the body of your dreams – but it doesn’t happen overnight so you can’t exactly ‘slip on’ the body of your dreams. It’s more like you evolve into the body of your dreams as the fat cells that were killed during the procedure naturally get excreted from the body. Both treatments work over time to provide you with a more contoured body and once the fat cells are blasted away, they don’t come back. This is one long term benefit of both EmSculpt and CoolSculpting that we say goes a long way – the fact that in the end you will have a more contoured body and the fat cells don’t grow back. But more on that later.
In this article we’re going to take a look at EmSculpt and CoolSculpting, the two most popular noninvasive body contouring treatments. We’ll take a look at the benefits of each treatment when it comes to the long term and short term – and there are so many benefits to getting either of these treatments done!
Basics of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting has been around for a long time. It was first approved by the FDA in 2010 and is a favorite among users worldwide who trust the fat reduction method because of its proven track record in helping people carve out their bodies using noninvasive technology. It uses controlled cooling to freeze and kill fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise in a process called cryolipolysis. During a CoolSculpting treatment, isolated fat deposits are exposed to a precise, freezing temperature and subcutaneous fat cells are destroyed. Because fat freezes at a lower temperature than other parts of the body, this process doesn’t harm the surrounding skin or tissue – it just kills fat, permanently. Once those fat cells are destroyed they’re gone forever. The killed fat cells naturally excrete from the body over time in a process called apoptosis.
Basics of EmSculpt
EmSculpt works similarly to CoolSculpting in that it destroys fat cells without surgery. Unlike CoolSculping, which can be used to target fat on different areas of the body, EmSculpt works on the abdomen and buttocks specifically. The technology works by melting away fat cells and stimulating the underlying muscles using HIFEM energy. The sheer number and speed of contractions that HIFEM energy triggers can’t be duplicated manually – they’re known as Supramaximal contractions. They can only be produced by the energy from an EmSculpt machine. As a result of EmSculpt the body looks slimmer and more toned and contoured.
Long Term Benefits: CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting permanently kills unwanted body fat without surgical intervention.
Once the fat cells are destroyed they don’t come back, they’re killed forever.
CoolSculpting eliminates fat over time. Your body will naturally excrete the fat with healthy eating and exercise. Drinking water also helps the body process out the fat.
- In the end, you’re left with a thinner and more contoured physique.
- CoolSculpting can be used to target many different fat zones on the body while EmSculpt only targets the abdomen and buttocks.
- CoolSculpting is usually finished after one or two treatments, while EmSculpt may take four treatments in order to bring about the desired results.

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting or EmSculpt?
The short answer is: maybe. CoolSculpting and EmSculpt work with many different body types and many different types of people. Overall, anyone looking to utilize either procedure should be in fairly good health with a positive mindset. CoolSculpting is great for people who have diet and exercise-resistant fat – the type of stubborn fat you can pinch. One of the best things about CoolSculpting is it can be used to target different parts of the body. If a patient has one particular problem zone, like, as an example, the abdomen, the abdomen can be concentrated on in order to get the desired results.
While, on the other hand, EmSculpt is only for the abdomen and buttocks. This makes EmSculpt less likely to be the ideal procedure for any particular candidate because the candidate will need to have the abdomen or buttocks as the target zone. If the problem area was the chin or arms, EmSculpt would not be the procedure for them. In this case, CoolSculpting would be the ideal treatment.
CoolSculpting vs EmSculpt: Overall
When taking a look at the long term and short term benefits of these treatments it’s clear to see they are both effective treatments for busting unwanted fat. It’s also clear that both treatments come with a variety of benefits, both long and short term. But when doing an actual comparison there are a few things to point out. First, CoolSculpting is a more versatile treatment – with it, you can treat areas all over the body, while on the other hand, EmSculpt can currently only treat the abdomen and buttocks. The second thing to point out is, CoolSculpting has been around longer. It has been approved by the FDA longer and more is known about the technology. EmSculpt, on the other hand, is a “new kid on the block” when it comes to noninvasive body contouring. It hasn’t been around for as long as CoolSculpting, and, therefore, less is known about it. So, while CoolSculpting is completely cutting edge, offering up new target zones often, it is also a technology that has been around for a while and certain practitioners have really become acquainted with the technology in its entirety.
