The emergence of nonsurgical fat reduction treatments is one of the most significant developments in the cosmetic field in the past decade. We recommend procedures such as CoolSculpting at our Dallas, TX, practice for women and men frustrated by stubborn pockets of fat.
Our practice takes nonsurgical fat reduction to the next level by combining CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT to provide patients with comprehensive body sculpting results that aren’t possible with just 1 of the procedures. In this blog post, I’ll discuss the benefits of each treatment and explain how we can maximize those benefits by combining the 2 treatments together.
What Is CoolSculpting?
The groundbreaking technology behind CoolSculpting kills fat cells with precisely controlled cooling. CoolSculpting cools the fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue. As the fat cells die, the body gradually removes them through its normal metabolic process. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that requires no downtime, meaning you can schedule a treatment during your lunch hour and return to work immediately.
During a CoolSculpting procedure, the provider attaches applicators specially designed to fit specific areas of the body. Patients experience minimal discomfort, such as tingling, as the treatment cools the targeted area. The results show up gradually during the months following the procedure as the fat cells die. Because the change occurs over time, it appears to be the result of a patient’s own efforts rather than an aesthetic procedure.
What Is EMSCULPT?
As the only treatment cleared by the FDA to both burn fat and build muscle, EMSCULPT is a breakthrough procedure for nonsurgical body contouring. EMSCULPT stimulates forced muscle contractions using high-intensity electromagnetic energy. The result is both muscle growth and fat reduction. EMSCULPT can treat people with a BMI of less than 25 and who are not candidates for other fat reduction treatments.
Additionally, EMSCULPT can be used for nonsurgical buttocks augmentation and to treat diastasis recti, an abdominal condition associated with pregnancy. The EMSCULPT procedure tones abdominal and buttocks muscles with minimal discomfort and without needing to spend hours at the gym.
Think of EMSCULPT as a way to produce the types of results you’d get if you did thousands of crunches. As your muscles become more toned, your body’s metabolism kicks in, and you’ll begin to see definition in spots that have been resistant to exercise and diet. EMSCULPT results typically appear sooner than CoolSculpting results.
CoolSculpting can be used to reduce fat in multiple areas of the body besides the abdomen, such as the love handles, thighs, under the chin, and upper arms. But with the machines working together and by targeting 2 different areas of the body at the same time, we can create natural-looking results more effectively and faster than with only a CoolSculpting treatment.
You can see the kind of results patients enjoy after CoolSculpting treatments in our gallery’s before-and-after photos.
