Just trying to figure out the difference between the two-if any.
Is Trusculpt the Same a Coolsculpt?

Coolsculpting offers a way to kill the fat cells, trusculpt may or may not
I do not have personal experience with the radiofrequency device, Trusculpt. Heat is generated with the radiofrequency and the question that needs to be answered over time is if the fat is liquified temporarily and leaks out of the fat cells slimming down the patient, but what happens to the fat cells. Do they die as they are proven to do with CoolScultping by Zeltiq that freezes the fat cells? Fat cells, or adiopocytes, are known to die at a temperature higher than the temperature needed to kill skin cells. What is the recurrence rate of fat in the area treated by Trusculpt? Time will tell. In our NYC practice, we see long term results after coolsculpting for fat removal.
Tru-Sculpt vs. Coolsculpting
Tru-Sculpt utilizes radio frequency energy to heat fat cells and cause their damage and shrinkage to sculpt the body and areas of unwanted fat. Coolsculpting utilizes cold to freeze fat cells and destroy them and create body contour by targeting specific areas of fat. Though both technologies are similar in that they improve body contours they do so by different modalities. We have both technologies in our office. If fat is too firm to compress or diffusely distributed then Tru-Sculpt is a good option. If fat is localized and is able to be drawn up into the applicator then Coolsculpting is a good option. For the best option for you, consider a consultation with a practice that has both technologies and can help you decide which treatment is best for you and not try to sell you on what they have.
TRusculpt vs CoolSculpting
Trusculpt is an RF (radio frequency) device that uses this wavelength to “shrink” fat cells temporarily.
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis to freeze and permanently eliminate fat cells without damage to the surrounding tissue. The procedure takes just one hour. In offices like mine, with two systems (some people call this Dualsculpting) you can have two areas treated at the same time for twice the fat loss in just one hour.
There is no surgery and no downtime with the CoolSculpting procedure
