Coolsculpting vs Vanquish?
Doctor Answers 8
Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive fat reduction for the right patient. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals. There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient. We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what. In office evaluation is necessary to evaluate what procedure would be best for you.

Coolsculpting vs Vanquish?
Vanquish has been shown to cause a little bit of skin retraction since it uses radiofrequency which can stimulate collagen.
As far as pricing goes, be advised that they are priced differently. Coolsculpting is priced by individual cycles, while Vanquish is charged by series (usually in a package of 4 treatments). The best way to decide which would be most cost efficient would be to have a consultation and find out how many cycles of Coolsculpting would be needed in order to achieve comparable results to a series of Vanquish treatments.

Coolsculpting Versus Vanquish
The best device depends on your needs
With CoolSculpting, the simple adage is that if you can grab it, you can treat it. This therapy has been done now for many years and in skilled hands in skilled offices, this is a very nice procedure to remove fat. Several treatments are usually needed.
Vanquish uses radiofrequency, and many say this procedure works very well to remove fat; others are still somewhat skeptical. But again, in the right hands, positive results can be seen.
There are many devices for skin tightening and these are not them. Other forms of RF energy-based devices are needed and again, finding the right office that offers multiple treatment options is what is needed for you to make the best decision, along with the group making the consultation.
We always strive to make sure we are using the right devices for the right indications. Many try to use the same device in many places — not always the best idea.
So find the right provider, ask questions and get the treatment that works with the concern that you are having.
