truSculpt® iD vs. Coolsculpting®: Understanding Your Options for Non-surgical Fat Reduction

4 Minute Read: 

Do you diet and exercise but still struggle with stubborn areas of fat?  Are you frustrated with love handles, pockets of fat on your abs or outer thighs, or even a double chin? 

If this sounds like you and you are considering non-surgical fat reduction, here’s the skinny on two of the most popular options available today.

AesthetiCare is a plastic surgery practice that is proud to offer truSculpt® iD at our medspa. 

We did the research and decided that truSculpt® offered better results than CoolSculpting®, and here’s why.

What Should You Know About CoolSculpting®?

When it comes to non-surgical fat reduction, many people know the name CoolSculpting®. There is no denying that this is a popular and heavily marketed treatment method. However, just because it is well known, doesn’t mean it is the best non-surgical fat reduction treatment available.

CoolSculpting® freezes the fat cells in a process known as cryolipolysis. CoolSculpting® involves the provider using customized applicators to treat the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, bra fat, and back fat. 

These applicators require the area being treated to be “pinchable,” limiting the areas that can be corrected. 

Why Do We Choose to Offer truSculpt® iD?

Instead of using low temperatures to freeze fat cells, truSculpt® uses radiofrequency heat to destroy them.

This radiofrequency also allows truSculpt® to treat skin laxity and texture. 

truSculpt® technology can be used to reduce fat in the:

  • Abdomen
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Below the buttock (banana roll)
  • Love handles
  • Double chin
  • And more

Because truSculpt® does not need the treatment area to be “pinchable,” it is far more versatile and can be used to treat any area of the body where there is excess fat.

The truSculpt® iD Difference

While CoolSculpting® is readily advertised on television and in magazines as a successful treatment, truSculpt® offers much more comprehensive results when it comes to fat removal and skin tightening. 

This truSculpt® technology has proven to provide more dramatic and consistent results than CoolSculpting®

Our truSculpt® applicators are hands-free, and the treatment only lasts 15 minutes. 

This, combined with its ability to treat loose skin and texture issues, makes truSculpt® our plastic surgeon’s choice for non-surgical fat reduction.

Customizable Fat Reduction

The versatility of truSculpt® allows your provider to create a more customized treatment plan and is a clear winner over CoolSculpting® if you want to treat multiple areas.

Post-Pregnancy Fat Reduction and Weight Loss

Non-surgical treatment with truSculpt® is often the best option after childbirth because of its skin tightening capabilities and works well for those with mild skin laxity due to weight fluctuations.

CoolSculpting® limits the patient to which areas can be treated and will not tighten the surrounding skin, hence why Aestheticare Med Spa prefers truSculpt® over Coolsculpting® as the best non-invasive fat removal procedure.
