truSculpt vs. CoolSculpting: Which Is Right for You?

Minimally invasive body sculpting is all the rage these days — and for good reason. Attempts to target-tone specific trouble spots like your abdomen and butt can only lead to disappointment and frustration. That’s why so many people have started turning to body contouring treatments like truSculpt or CoolSculpting to help reach their ultimate body goals. Whether your problem area is your arms, back, abs, thighs, buttocks, or chest, these treatments can help you.


But how do you determine which one is right for you? Here’s the rundown to help you choose what’s best for your body transformation.


Melt Away Fat With truSculpt


truSculpt is a non-invasive RF technology that delivers deep heating to adipose tissue for fat reduction and skin tightening. As the treatment progresses and the temperature increases, it creates a warming sensation that melts fat and stimulates collagen production, which will help tighten and tone your skin.


A typical truSculpt treatment can last for about an hour, and it doesn’t require any downtime afterward. It’s suitable for all skin types and can address multiple stubborn areas in one session.


Results will be visible four to three months after treatments begin, as the body processes and eliminates the damaged fat cells.


Many patients choose to have multiple sessions to reach their best results. You can work with your doctor to create a treatment plan that works for you and your goals.

Freeze Away Fat With CoolSculpting


CoolSculpting destroys fat cells by freezing them until they die, after which your body will naturally process and eliminate them. The results of CoolSculpting are long-term, and you will begin to see them as soon as three weeks after receiving the treatment, but expect to see your appearance continuing to improve over the following two months.


CoolSculpting works by applying a vacuum applicator to targeted areas. This controlled cooling freezes fat cells in that area. You may feel some initial discomfort, including a tugging or tingling sensation, but this should soon subside as the treated area goes numb. Afterward, you might experience some temporary side effects, such as swelling, redness, bruising, tenderness, and mild aching. These are all typical, but not all patients report them and are generally rare.


CoolSculpting generally takes around 35 to 60 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

truSculpt and CoolSculpting share a lot of similarities. Both make ideal non-invasive procedures to help contour stubborn areas that are difficult to target with diet and exercise alone — with no anesthesia or incisions required. Both permanently destroy fat cells, though they take a different approach. The primary difference is CoolSculpting relies on extreme cold, while truSculpt uses heat to get rid of excess fat.
