I have both machines and we often have patients that do both. Many times they will thin out the area with Vanquish and spot treat an area after with Coolsculpting. This is particularly effective for larger patients who can't treat that many areas with Coolsculpting.
Thank you for your question. You can switch from CoolSculpting to Vanquish at any time if you don't have any complications from your Vanquish procedure. Keep in mind, at less than a month, you will not yet have realized the full benefit of Vanquish. Both procedures typically require more than one treatment session for optional results. Best of luck.
I would suggest doing the vanquish immediately before coolsculpting -- this is similar to the "fire and ice" treatment. It will likely help the coolsculpting lose more fat. However, if you are considering all these combinations for fat reduction you may be better with a hi definition liposuction procedure. Please see a body contouring specialist. Best, Dr. Emer.
This is perfectly fine to do at anytime. Remember that Coolsculpting in general requires "pinchable fat" whereas Vanquish can be used on any body type.
As long as you don't have any noted swelling or areas of firmness from the Vanquish, you should be able to have a Coolsculpting treatment at any time. If you do have swelling or nodules, I'd recommend waiting until those resolve before getting Coolsculpt.
