How is body sculpting different that coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting uses technology that freezes and permanently removes fat cells, while Body Contouring uses ultrasound technology to dissolve fat cells naturally and excrete them through your lymphatic system. Coolsculpting tends to be more painful and can require more downtime. Body contouring has been proven to reduce fat by 32% while coolsculpting comes in second by reducing only 24% of fat. It is easier for a body contouring machine to target problem areas that are hard to get to with a coolsculpting machine, such as knees, "bra bulges" and arms. There has been no reports of any damage to surrounding tissue while using the body sculpting technique. Body Sculpting tends to be less expensive ranging from $75-$150 per treatment while coolsculpting comes in around $2000-$4000 per session.
