Cool Sculpting vs. Emsculpt | Non-Invasive Body Contouring

Cool Sculpting and Emsculpt are two of the leading body-contouring treatments currently available in the field of cosmetic procedures. Given the slightly similar names, it can be easy to think maybe they are similar or even interchangeable procedures. However, both distinguish themselves in incredible ways. Learn more about the difference to find out what is the best choice for you.

How Does Cool Sculpting Work?

Cool Sculpting is currently the only FDA-approved fat reduction procedure that utilizes controlled super-cold temperatures to treat exercise-and-diet-resistant fat deposits. Cool Sculpting is the most popular non-invasive fat reduction procedure worldwide. Recent research has shown that just a single fat-freezing treatment can result in up to 25% reduction and that the results are long-term.

The scientific process behind CoolSculpting is called cryolipolysis. During cryolipolysis, highly precise cold temperatures target isolated fatty areas and freeze the subcutaneous fat cells while leaving the upper layer of skin and surrounding tissue undamaged. Freezing the fat cells destroys them, which triggers apoptosis, the body’s natural cell removal process. During this process, the immune system collects the destroyed fat cells and removes them from the body as waste. This process happens over the course of several weeks. Once these fat cells are destroyed and removed from the body, they cannot regenerate, resulting in long-term fat reduction.

How Does Emsculpt Work?

Emsculpt is a very innovative body contouring procedure, unique from Cool Sculpting. Emsculpt is not just for fat reduction in the abdomen, arms, legs and buttocks area; it utilizes HIFEM energy to stimulate contractions called supramaximal contractions in the underlying muscle to build, strengthen and tone musculature.

These ultra-strong contractions are not the types of contractions one can stimulate during a gym work out. The Emsculpt machine is able to stimulate the muscle in a way that cannot be achieved manually.  Just one Emsculpt session is the equivalent of 20,000 squats (specifically in the buttocks area) or 20,000 crunches (specifically in the abdomen area). As in traditional strength training, the contractions promote muscle growth.

Emsculpt or Cool Sculpting: Which is Best?

Cool Sculpting and Emsculpt have different strengths. It is true that Emsculpt does destroy fat cells (adipocytes), which can lead to fat reduction. Nevertheless, CoolSculpting is still considered the gold standard for non-invasive fat reduction procedures. CoolSculpting is also able to treat a wide array of areas, such as double chins and fat deposits above the knees.

Currently, Emsculpt is limited to the abdomen, upper arms, upper legs, and buttocks areas. But where Emsculpt is limited in versatility, it shines in terms of cutting edge technology. Cool Sculpting is limited to just fat reduction, whereas Emsculpt is more capable of more targeted body reshaping by building, toning, and strengthening muscles.

Emsculpt and Cool Sculpting: For Best Results, Combine Treatment

Emsculpt and Cool Sculpting excel in different areas of body contouring in ways that can be combined to achieve excellent results. Many patients who are in search of total body transformation combine the two procedures. Emsculpt and Cool Sculpting in tandem can dramatically reduce stomach fat and help build sculpted abs.
