Certainly, few patients are ready for plastic surgery to correct their body' imperfections. So, non-invasive techniques are a good choice for those who are not ready for a long rehabilitation period after liposuction, anesthesia or pain. Therefore, more and more people in the world resort to such sculpting and body contouring methods as TruSculpt 3D and CoolSculpting skin tightening. These modern procedures are well recognized, safe and effective methods of getting rid of small fatty clusters. Both of these techniques improve the contours of the body without surgery, injections, without any violation of the skin!

What is the difference between these two methods?

Both methods involve contour and sculptural correction of the body, being the most sought-after among patients. The difference between both ways of affecting fat cells is the approach of fat removing. CoolSculpting skin tightening procedure is a method of destroying small accumulations of fat by freezing while TruSculpt 3D is quite the opposite that means using radiofrequency energy to heat and kill fat cells. The truSculpt 3D improves skin tone in the treatment area and could be considered a treatment for fat and laxity while CoolSculpting treatment does not make laxity worse in the treated area.

CoolSculpting skin tightening system focuses on certain areas of the skin and uses cold to freeze fat cells. The cold temperature destroys the tissue. After each treatment, the amount of fat is decreased by 12%. But, due to the limited scope, CoolSculpting works on a specific area of fat that can fit between two panels. In addition, many patients felt discomfort during the procedure. The scope of this technique is butt, hips, and thighs.

As to the TruSculpt 3D, this is a thermal method of getting rid of excess fat, sculpting and contouring the body that affects a wider area. During the procedure, radiofrequency energy is used to heat fat cells killing them at 24% per session. The tissue warms up to a temperature of 45-47°C.  The destruction of unwanted fat is occurring not only on the face, abdomen, hips, etc., but also in such places as hands, knees, and neck.

What is common between these two procedures?

As you can see, the methods of effecting the fat reduction as well as skin tightening are similar in some ways to each other. At the same time, both methods are approximately in the same pricing policy, the waiting time for the result and the duration of the procedure.

TruSculpt 3D and CoolSculpting skin tightening: what procedure is more effective?

The main difference between the two procedures is the fact that the TruSculpt 3D perfectly tightens the skin that covers the large surface being treated. Since this procedure uses heat, the human body itself starts to produce collagen that tightens the skin in turn. Many patients observed the cellulite disappearing after the procedure. Studies have shown that the fat removal percentage per one TruSculpt 3D therapy session is higher than after a single CoolSculpting skin tightening session.

Everybody is entitled to choose the method of sculpting and contouring his body. Surely, when choosing the TruSculpt 3D or CoolSculpting skin tightening, you need to be based on your skin type and a certain area of influence where you want to get the expected result. The best way to choose a procedure that suits you most of all is to consult a professional. If you want to know more about these procedures, contact one of our doctors in Bella Sana!
