CoolSculpting vs ultrasound, laser, radio-frequency, heat and other non-surgical fat reducers
- hurt too much or injure the skin to accomplish their goals or
- they do not deliver the energy required due to the patient's inability to tolerate the pain.
- laser ie focused light waves (eg. Sculpsure)
- ultrasound ie focused sound waves (eg. Liposonix)
- radio-frequency (eg. ThermiSMOOTH)
- direct heat
- cooling (eg. CoolSculpting)
Best Treatment for my stubborn fat?
Dear MelbourneMama,Thank you for your question. Both CoolSculpting and Liposonix are effective at selective fat reduction in an intended treatment area. Both result in permanent fat removal but accomplish this via different modalities; CoolSculpting using cold (freezing) whereas Liposonix uses heat via focused ultrasound waves. The best way for you to know which is best for you is to seek consultation with a professional who is adept at fat reduction procedures (invasive and non-invasive) to gain greater understanding of which would be a better fit for you and your desired outcome. This is best accomplished with an actual examination/discussion and not with pictures or descriptions.
Two different technologies
Thanks for the great question. In order to give you the best information possible, I need to tell you a little bit about the two technologies because they are totally different. Liposonix uses high intensity focuses ultrasound. This technology works by causing the fat cells to heat up and thus eventually kills some of the fat cells. Coolsculpting is the complete opposite, it works through cryolipolysis where the fat cells are cooled down to a freezing point which causes them to be damaged and reabsorbed by the body. There are a lot of machines which use heat (either through ultrasound or radiofrequency). Coolsculpting is the only technology which is able to freeze the fat. There are no studies that I know of to date comparing the two technologies in terms of efficacy. In my opinion, coolsculpting is able to more reliably and predictably cause a loss in fat compared to other technologies. It might be best to go see someone with each technology for evaluation and to look and their before and after photos. Best of luck in your area!~Dr. Sieber

Hello and thanks for your question.
While both treatments give an adequate result, Coolsculpting has a 20% higher approval rating and is considered the gold standard by many.
The CoolSculpting treatment is ideal for those at a stable weight with small to moderate areas of stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise. The procedure also offers a quick, effective and affordable treatment option with minimal associated discomfort and downtime for those seeking non-invasive alternatives to surgery.
All the best,

Coolsculpting or Liposonix
Thank you for your question. Both liposonix and coolsculpting will work to reduce fat, however they work using different modalities. Coolsculpting is using cold and Liposonix is using ultrasound via heat for fat reduction. I feel that a consult with a licensed professional is the way to go to see which treat is best suited for you and your desired outcome.
