BodyFX vs. Cool Sculpting


BodyFXTM vs. Cool Sculpting- Which Gets Rid of Fat and Cellulite Better?

It doesn’t seem fair, does it? You exercise and eat right, yet you still can’t seem to get rid of cellulite. It only adds insult to injury when you hear that more than 85 percent of women have cellulite, while only 10 percent of men do. You can recognize cellulite by its dimpled appearance, especially on your thighs and hips. In the past, liposuction was the only option people had when it came to getting rid of cellulite and excess abdominal fat. Like cellulite, that loose skin that people sometimes refer to as a muffin top or love handle is often resistant to dieting and exercise. While having cellulite and untoned areas of fat can certainly be frustrating, the good news is that you can eliminate it thanks to a new non-invasive laser technology called BodyFXTM.

How BodyFXTM Works
BodyFXTM is a new, safe, state-of-the-art, long-lasting, non-invasive solution for fat reduction and body contouring. BodyFXTM is a handheld laser that combines suction coupled negative pressure, deep tissue heating, and radio-frequency energy to treat cellulite and excess abdominal fat. Your tissues contract in response to heat the laser sends to your skin and the fat lying just below it. Making use of radio frequency energy, deep tissue heating, and light vacuum pressure, the BodyFXTM applicator distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat causing the tissue to heat and contract to tighten the skin and melt fat cells over time. Safe to use on all parts of the body with stubborn fat reserves, BodyFXTM melts fat cells and can provide a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
BodyFXTM sends radio-frequency energy in pulses that travel at a rate of one million per second. Most people experience only minor discomfort during the procedure, such as warmth on the skin and a pulling sensation during contouring of the skin. You should plan to attend weekly sessions for approximately six weeks to achieve the results you desire.

BodyFXTM vs. Cool Sculpting – Know The Differences
Cool Sculpting is another non-invasive treatment for fat reduction. Although it has been around longer than BodyFXTM, because it is older technology it just doesn’t offer the same fast, impressive results. Consider these differences:

⦁ Cool Sculpting is a form of non-targeted fat reduction. Since it can’t tighten skin, patients may be left with saggy skin once treatment is complete. It doesn’t offer options for contouring or body shaping.
⦁ BodyFXTM uses heat and radio frequency to destroy fat cells and tighten skin. Cool Sculpting uses cold-based technology that is just above the point of freezing. This results in a very slow process of fat elimination.
⦁  BodyFXTM patients see results in as little as six weeks, while Cool Sculpting patients must wait up to four months.
⦁ It takes approximately 60 minutes to treat each area with Cool Sculpting compared to 15 to 30 minutes with .BodyFXTM
⦁ The intense cold of Cool Sculpting is quite uncomfortable for patients. Additionally, they may experience side effects such as bruising, swelling, bloating, skin redness, and the possibility of ulceration or permanent scarring.

If it sounds like  BodyFXTM is the clear winner over Cool Sculpting, you’re right. In our opinion, it’s the hands-down winner when it comes to noninvasive fat removal. To learn more about  BodyFXTMor to schedule an appointment, call our office at 918-422-5750 or simply click here:
