Winning the battle of the bulge and settling into the body – and life – of your dreams can be a hard-fought challenge. Lots of people try to get rid of uncomfortable, excess fat by changing their lifestyle and adding or increasing healthy eating and exercise. Sometimes these changes work, and sometimes they don’t. Fat, especially fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise, will always be a challenge, especially as we get older. It gets more and more difficult to lose weight as we age because of issues with metabolism, hormone imbalances – and simply finding the time to eat right and exercise.
But even for younger people, ditching fat cells through diet and exercise seems easier said than done. And that’s because fat cells get bigger with weight gain, smaller after weight loss – but, let this be clear: fat cells don’t disappear – unless they’re taken out.
That’s where these two treatments come in. CoolSculpting and Vanquish are two nonsurgical ways to reduce body fat permanently, each with its own set of benefits. In this article we’ll examine CoolSculpting and Vanquish; and by the end we hope you have a better idea which will meet your needs more efficiently.
The Basics of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting uses cooling technology to freeze and get rid of unwanted fat. This is how it works: Years back, scientists recognized that fat freezes at a cooler temperature than other tissues in the body. This allows CoolSculpting technology to freeze fat cells, but not harm other tissues. During a CoolSculpting procedure, targeted fat cells die once the right temperature is hit. In time, the patient will naturally eliminate the frozen, dead fat cells. The end result occurs with the patient attaining a sleeker, sexier, more attractive look. No surgery is required for this procedure and the downtime is nearly nonexistent – many patients even report going back to work later the same day.
The Basics of Vanquish
While CoolSculpting freezes fat, Vanquish uses heat to get rid of stubborn bulk. During a Vanquish treatment, the target area is hit with radiofrequency energy. In an effort to get the best results, the provider determines exactly how much energy is used. The targeted fat cells get to a higher temperature than the rest of the patient’s body and, then, the fat cells die as a result of the heat. As with CoolSculpting, the body eliminates dead fat cells naturally and the patient will eventually have a slimmer, more contoured body.
How are CoolSculpting & Vanquish similar?
CoolSculpting and Vanquish reduce unwanted body fat and improve your overall look and aesthetic with FDA approved sculpting technologies. Both treatments are non-invasive and give you a chance to reduce stubborn fat without complex, invasive procedures. Neither treatment will remove as much stubborn fat as liposuction, which is, of course, a surgical procedure. When comparing these two treatments to liposuction, they’re both incredibly effective at reducing fat, but they do it in a less risky, non-invasive way. Though these treatments work differently, they are both safe, with minimal downtime, and they’re both effective at removing fat. And perhaps their best similarity is that both treatments remove fat permanently. Once fat cells are gone, they don’t regenerate. As we learned above, when we gain weight fat cells swell and bulk and when we lose weight they shrink. But all in all, the amount of fat cells remains the same. Once these fat cells are removed they are gone forever.
How are CoolSculpting & Vanquish different?
Although there are a bunch of similarities between CoolSculpting and Vanquish, there are things that set them apart. The main difference is that CoolSculpting uses cooling technology to eliminate fat. Vanquish, on the other hand, uses the technology of radio frequency to reduce excess fat.
There are also differences in the target areas each of these technologies can hit. CoolSculpting can reduce fat in the following places: buttocks, chin, jawline, stomach, love handles, thighs, flanks, upper arms, and back. While Vanquish reduces fat on the upper thighs, sides, upper arms, and abdomen. CoolSculpting is approved by the FDA to target more areas than Vanquish.
Why CoolSculpting is better than Vanquish
- Coolsculpting was approved by the FDA to treat more target areas on the body than Vanquish. CoolSculpting can treat under the chin, buttocks, jawline, stomach, love handles, thighs, flanks, upper arms, and back.
- CoolSculpting can target very specific areas of the body and can zone in on specific pockets of stubborn fat.
- CoolSculpting requires less treatments than Vanquish and, therefore, is excellent for busy people with busy schedules or for those who want to do their treatment on vacation or out of town. Patients often see results after just one treatment, but multiple treatments are often used to reduce more fat.
- CoolSculpting is known by patients to be comfortable – so comfortable, infact, that clients read or watch tv during their treatment.
