What’s the Difference Between Laser Liposuction and CoolSculpting?

When dieting and exercising just aren’t working anymore, you may consider an aesthetic procedure like CoolSculpting or Laser Liposuction. These two methods are both highly successful and can help you get rid of excess fat in no time. 

Coolsculpting vs. Laser Liposuction

Although laser liposuction and CoolSculpting both aim to remove excess fat through a painless procedure that causes minimal downtime and are both great alternatives to traditional liposuction, these two methods actually take very different approaches to eliminating fat: laser liposuction is based on melting the fat, whereas CoolSculpting freezes the unwanted fat away. 

What is Laser Liposuction?

Laser liposuction utilizes laser energy that travels through the skin and melts fatty tissue. The melted fat is then removed using a suction device and a surgical tool known as a cannula. This procedure also stimulates the production of collagen, which should help with tightening of the skin. 

Laser liposuction treatment is best used for the following parts of the body: 

  • Abdomen
  • Chest
  • Chin
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Neck
  • Thighs

Since laser liposuction is not entirely noninvasive, it requires local anesthesia.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen) and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, revealing a leaner, more sculpted look.   

Several areas of the body can benefit from this fat reduction process. Areas of the body that can be treated with CoolSculpting include:

  • Double chin
  • Back 
  • Sides
  • Abdomen
  • Inner thigh
  • Outer thigh

Because CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive, there is no need for anesthesia. To learn more about these procedures or to schedule a consultation in Miami, contact Med Eye Aesthetics today at (305) 661-8588 or website.
