An elegantly shaped body is always in style, but achieving it can be challenging. Although diet and exercise are the ideal ways to lose stubborn body fat and tone muscle, you may have areas of your body that are particularly hard to sculpt. Nonsurgical body contouring treatments such as EMSCULPT NEO and CoolSculpting can enhance your efforts and achieve the slimmer, more toned look you want with minimal downtime.
In this post, we discuss key benefits and differences between these two body contouring treatments so you can make the best choice for your needs.
What Are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is considered the gold standard for nonsurgical fat reduction and can permanently eliminate fat cells from many areas of your body. It’s especially suitable for areas that can accumulate hard-to-shift fat deposits, such as the upper arms, flanks, and lower abdomen. CoolSculpting is an excellent option for individuals close to their goal weight who want to slim problem areas to look and feel great.
What Are the Benefits of EMSCULPT NEO?
While EMSCULPT NEO also reduces stubborn fat with the help of radiofrequency energy, most people opt for this treatment to build and tone muscle. The high-intensity electromagnetic energy (HIFEM+) technology used for this treatment can tone existing muscle fibers and build new muscle through a process of extremely rapid muscle contractions. EMSCULPT NEO is better suited to treat areas of the body such as the buttocks, abdomen, and legs where added muscle tone is the goal.
What To Expect During Your CoolSculpting Treatment
A major benefit of CoolSculpting is that you can look forward to a pleasant treatment session with minimal to no downtime. At our practice, we offer CoolSculpting Elite with dual applicators that can treat two areas simultaneously. Depending on the areas you want to improve, your CoolSculpting session can take as little as 30 minutes, and you can resume your regular routine immediately.
What To Expect During Your EMSCULPT NEO Treatment
Similar to CoolSculpting, there is no recovery time needed after your EMSCULPT NEO treatment. You will only experience a warm sensation during the treatment and can return to your normal activities after the session is complete. Because EMSCULPT NEO works your muscles intensely, you will probably experience soreness in the days following treatment, just like you would after a hard workout.
How Many CoolSculpting Treatments Will I Need?
Some patients are happy with their results after one CoolSculpting treatment. However, others will return for 2 to 4 sessions per area.
How Many EMSCULPT NEO Treatments Will I Need?
We usually recommend a series of 4 sessions, spaced 5 to 10 days apart for optimal results.
When Will I See CoolSculpting Results?
You may begin seeing results after 4 weeks, but full results are usually realized after 2 to 4 months. CoolSculpting results can last indefinitely when you follow a balanced diet and a consistent workout routine.
When Will I See EMSCULPT NEO Results?
You’ll see results after about 2 weeks. You may opt to join a monthly enhancement program after your initial package to get one treatment per month at a discounted rate to maintain your results.
Which Treatment Is Best for Me?
Both CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO can sculpt and contour your body in different ways. Your provider will assess the areas you want to improve and consider your overall goals when recommending a body contouring treatment. It’s not uncommon for people to start with CoolSculpting to get rid of unwanted fat, then progress to EMSCULPT NEO to build muscle.
