If you live a healthy and active lifestyle yet still struggle when it comes to the battle of the bulge, you’re not alone. Many of us deal with excess weight and stubborn fat pockets. As a result, consumers look to get rid of excess bulge with invasive cosmetic procedures – even though they come with high cost, excessive downtime and painful recovery. We’re here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way! There are excellent nonsurgical methods for fat removal on the market today. You don’t have to resort to surgery to get the body of your dreams, infact, you can reach your goals with a lunchtime appointment. In this article we’ll discuss two of these nonsurgical, noninvasive methods: CoolSculpting and Venus Bliss. We’ll compare and contrast them to give you a better idea of which works for you.
Basics of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is an FDA approved nonsurgical, noninvasive fat reduction procedure. It utilizes targeted cooling to blast stubborn fat cells. The technology behind CoolSculpting is the result of hardwork and research performed by two Harvard University scientists who discovered that fat freezes differently than other parts of the body. During a proceedure, targeted fat is blasted with cool temperatues and then those dead fat cells are processed out of the body over time in a process known as apoptosis. The process where fat cells die is called cryolipolysis. When a fat zone is targeted by a CoolSculpting applicator other cells and tissues in the body are not harmed. In other words, only the targeted fat is excreated from the body. Once the fat cells are processed out they don’t come back or grow back – just like with liposuction and other invasive fat removal proceedures. That means CoolSculpting delivers similar results to Liposuction, without the invasivness.
Basics of Venus Bliss
Venus Bliss is a noninvasive, nonsurgical fat blasting machine that was produced by Venus Concept. Venus Concept is the brand name and Venus Bliss is its product. It’s FDA approved as a clinical, effective, non-surgical fat treatment and cellulite smoother. At the same time this technology can tighten lax skin. With Venus Bliss, applicators are put on the abdomen, flank, back, thighs and buttocks – and then fat is blasted with targeted energy emanating from a 1064nm diode laser. The laser hits subcutaneous fat, which is fat that rests below the skin’s surface – and, just like with CoolSculpting, the fat gets broken down and destroyed in a process known as lipolysis, which literally means “cell death”. Because this treatment generally hits the midsection only (as opposed to CoolSculpting, which can target other spots on the body) it can result in a smoother and more contoured midsection.
Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting or Venus Bliss?
The ideal candidate for either of these proceedures is someone who is overall healthy yet has specific fat pockets that won’t go away despite diet and excersize. We call these fat pockets “diet and excersize resistant,” which is exactly as the name suggests. The candidate should be someone who wants to elimate this type of fat but doesn’t want the hefty downtime associated with surgery – nor any of the risks. Anyone looking to utilize either of these proceedures should evaluate if it can address their needs. For example, if you’re looking to target the arms, CoolSculpting is your ideal proceedure. Why? Venus Bliss is targeted toward the midsection; if removing arm fat is your goal, Venus Bliss can’t help. Another important aspect of a “good candidate” is that they understand that neither treatment is meant as a solution for weight loss. These proceedures can help you attain your body goals, but they can’t replace healthy diet and excersize. Remaining active after the treatment is finished is of the utmost importance. These treatments should be looked at as a way to jumpstart healthy eating and exercise rituals.
CoolSculpting vs Venus Bliss: Overall
If you want to get rid of stubborn fat without the risks of surgery you’ve come to the right place. These are both great methods for fat reduction – and neither comes with the risks of surgery like needles, anesthesia or preoperative blood work. For this reason, CoolSculpting and Venus Bliss are a good counter option to liposuction, as they deliver similar results by permanently removing fat, just over a longer period of time. There is an important distinction between CoolSculpting and Venus Bliss – CoolSculpting has been around much longer. CoolSculpting is the tried and true method for blasting fat. It’s used in countries around the world. It’s name brand is highly recognizable. Think about it: When did you first hear of CoolSculpting? Now, when did you first hear of Venus Bliss? You probably heard of Venus Bliss alot further down the line. For this reason we’re keen on CoolSculpting. Another reason we’re more fond of CoolSculpting is that it can blast fat in more places. While Venus Bliss is primarily a midsection-blasting techonology, CoolSculpting is approved for zones all around the body.
