You may have heard the age-old question: how do you get rid of those pesky bulges without going under the knife? There are several non-surgical fat reduction options: CoolSculpting, Emsculpt NEO, and EON body contouring. Read on to see how they compare so that you can choose the best one for your needs.

Why Non-Surgical Fat Reduction?

Non-surgical fat reduction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures because people can look better without downtime. It banishes stubborn fat that is resistant to exercise and diet. If you want a toned, slender body with visible muscle definition, non-surgical fat reduction is an excellent option. In addition, our patients experience a boost in self-confidence after their sessions with us.

With non-surgical fat reduction treatments, you will achieve your ideal body without taking time off work. You will not even have to worry about pain or discomfort. Unlike invasive procedures like liposuction, the non-surgical options are much gentler.

What Are the Top Non-Invasive Fat Reduction Technologies?

CoolSculpting, Emsculpt NEO, and EON are today’s leading non-invasive fat reduction technologies. Let’s explore how each of them works and see how they compare.


CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved procedure that uses cooling panels to freeze fat cells. This causes their death and from there, the body eliminates them as waste. This process is called Cryolipolysis and requires no incisions, needles, or downtime.

CoolSculpting treatment areas include:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Bra line
  • Inner thighs
  • Knees
  • Arms

In addition to reducing fat, CoolSculpting aids in skin tightening and cellulite reduction. Men and women enjoy CoolSculpting because, in contrast to surgery, there is no risk of nerve damage

What Are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?

This revolutionary fat-freezing treatment is safe, effective, and painless. It is perfect for men and women who have tried dieting and exercising but still struggle with stubborn fat. The benefits of CoolSculpting are plentiful:

  • Kills fat cells without harming surrounding tissue
  • Does not leave scars or marks on the skin
  • Does not require anesthesia
  • Quick and easy sessions
  • Convenient lunchtime procedure
  • Does not involve needles, fillers, or surgery
  • Look better in clothes
  • Feel good in your own skin
  • Versatile treatment targets various body parts

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

A CoolSculpting expert uses a handheld device to freeze fat cells under the skin. The whole process involves no needles or incisions. The best results come from multiple sessions over time. Ideally, patients schedule two monthly sessions for three months to get impressive results.

After completing a full treatment plan, CoolSculpting results can be long-lasting. Patients must continue exercising and eating nutritious foods. A healthy lifestyle will prolong your fat reduction results for years to come.

It is worth noting that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure. While you will notice your body slimming down over time, you may not see the number on your scale budge. A robust workout routine is necessary to shed pounds. If you plan to lose a lot of weight, it is best to do it before getting CoolSculpting treatments.

Emsculpt NEO

Emsculpt NEO is also a non-invasive body contouring device. But instead of using cooling panels to freeze fat, it uses high-intensity electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy and radiofrequency energy to heat fat cells in a targeted area. The heat causes the water inside these fat cells to evaporate and shrink, which then reduces the appearance of skin bulges.

What Makes Emsculpt NEO Stand Out?

This non-invasive fat reduction technology stands out from others in one significant way: it burns fat and builds muscle simultaneously. Countless celebrities swear by Emsculpt NEO because they can look their best without spending hours at the gym or extreme dieting. With this advanced technology in your arsenal (alongside a healthy lifestyle), there is no reason not to achieve beach body goals by summer.

EON Body Contouring

EON body contouring is one of the most effective body-shaping solutions on the market for removing unwanted fat. Clients love that there are no needles, blades, or anesthesia involved—yet they can achieve their dream bodies! Best of all, each session takes only 20 minutes.

EON works well on the:

  • Abdomen
  • Waistline
  • Love handles
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Calves
  • Arms

Results vary per person. But studies show patients experienced an average of 21.6% fat loss in the abdomen after a full one-hour treatment (three sessions).

How Does EON Body Contouring Work?

EON body contouring relies on thermal laser energy and cooling technology to shed stubborn fat. The procedure triggers the body to produce more collagen, which is vital for skin health and vitality. Over time, your skin becomes tighter and more toned. Unlike CoolSculpting and Emsculpt NEO, which involve a handheld device, EON is entirely touchless. This means there’s no need for pulling, pinching, tugging, or cold gels.

Which Solution Is Best for Me?

Everyone has unique bodies and cosmetic goals. With that said, different solutions will work better for certain people. For example, CoolSculpting is a fantastic option if you want to reduce fat in small areas like the stomach or love handles. Also, it is great for those who want to improve their body shape but do not have much excess fat in the first place.

Emsculpt NEO is a promising solution for patients who want to get rid of fat and tone up their bodies. The advanced electromagnetic technology gives people seeking dramatic transformations more options than CoolSculpting can provide. Not only does Emsculpt NEO eliminate fat, but it sculpts muscle definition in problem spots. In addition, patients enjoy improved skin quality and texture after the treatment.

EON is also a popular body contouring treatment that patients love. Schedule a consultation to determine which of the three best suits your needs. One of our body sculpting experts can assess your physique and make suggestions to help you make the right decision.
