Coolsculpting or Cavi-Lipo? As you know from reading our blog, we have already looked at traditional liposuction and Laser Lipo as alternatives to Cavi-Lipo for achieving a slimmer you. In this post, we will look at Coolsculpting and how the facts you need to know about it versus Cavi-Lipo. Coolsculpting, much like its name sounds, is a body sculpting procedure that used “controlled cooling” to freeze those pesky fat cells that we all worry about. Like Cavi-Lipo, it is non-invasive and non-surgical, but uses a different technology to achieve fat elimination.
By way of explaining the technology without boring you to tears, here’s a quick 101-version of how both procedures ultimately work:
So, at the end of the day, fat is permanently eliminated in both cases! Yay! But what else do you need to think about? Well, what about the procedure itself?
At West Hills Cavi Lipo, we offer a spa-like environment where you lie on a heated massage table and relax while the machine is run over your skin. No cutting, slicing or dicing to get that fat to disappear! During the treatment, you will hear a sound in your ears from the ultrasound, and there is no pain. The Coolsculpting machine is also non-invasive, so it is used on the top of your skin, but that is where the similarities end. Patients can expect to feel suction from the vacuum procedure, intense cold, and cramping-sensations as the treatment area becomes numb. You can’t freeze fat cells without it being cold, right? Post-treatment, there may be bruising or redness, which is understandable given that the machine itself uses suction. Otherwise, once both treatments have been completed, you can go back to your usual daily routine.
Where Cavi-Lipo Takes the Lead
Cavi-Lipo and Coolsculpting, as you can see, have many of the same positives. They’re both FDA-approved processes. They’re both non-surgical and non-invasive. But Cavi-Lipo has some benefits that made it our choice of procedure to offer:
We always recommend that our clients ask any questions they may have about Cavi-Lipo. You’re welcome to come in and see the machine or give us a call to ask before you start treatment. There’s plenty of before and after photos on our website, and our testimonials show the satisfaction level of our clients. We look forward to seeing you soon.
