CoolSculpting or truSculpt? Learn the benefits of each
Nonsurgical Fat Reduction Options
When you are struggling to attain a tighter and slimmer figure, even with an ideal diet and exercise regimen, a nonsurgical fat reduction procedure may be an option for you. Without a long period of downtime or the need for an anesthetic, both CoolSculpting® and truSculpt® can offer you desirable results for a more defined figure. However, there are a few differentiations to be made between the two technologies and procedures. While both CoolSculpting and truSculpt are FDA cleared, they utilize different methods to eliminate stubborn fat cells. Our aesthetic team at Southside Dermatology & Laser Cosmetic Center in Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach, FL offer both procedures to our patients depending on their desired goals. During a thorough consultation at our state-of-the-art facility, we will evaluate your concerns, needs, and desired outcome to determine which treatment will be best for you.
What Is truSculpt?
As a Cutera laser, truSculpt utilizes radiofrequency (RF) heat energy to eliminate stubborn fat while also providing skin tightening and texture improvements to the treatment area. Typically used on the stomach, love handles, thighs, arms, back, butt, and double chin, this technology can also be beneficial for helping improve the appearance of loose, sagging skin for Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach, FL area patients.
What Is CoolSculpting?
Unlike truSculpt, CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells to allow them to be eliminated naturally by the body. This process is known as cryolipolysis and is typically used to treat the stomach, love handles, jawline, thighs, and back. In most cases, a minimum of three sessions are needed in order to provide your optimized results with CoolSculpting at Southside Dermatology & Laser Cosmetic Center; however, some individuals may notice results after one treatment.
Which Treatment Is Right For You?
Though there are benefits to both treatments, truSculpt may be more ideal if you want to treat multiple areas of your body since it can be used on many body parts. In contrast, CoolSculpting is mostly ideal for the abdomen and jawline. Additionally, truSculpt provides a tightening effect along with fat reduction, which may be more beneficial for individuals who deal with loose skin. Both treatments do not require any significant downtime and may require multiple treatment sessions and/or touch-up appointments at our Jacksonville or Jacksonville Beach, FL offices. With both truSculpt and CoolSculpting, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly to better maintain your overall results.
