Revolutionary fat reduction treatments such as CoolSculpting and Liposonix are FDA approved and proven to effectively reduce stubborn fat deposits.¹ ² But which of these two fat reduction treatments is right for you? SKINNEY Medspa discusses CoolSculpting and Liposonix, revealing the differences between the two.
CoolSculpting, essentially freezes fat, by using Cryolipolysis technology. According to clinical research Fat cells are very sensitive to temperature, much more so than skin cells. When applying controlled cooling to targeted fat cells, the skin and surrounding tissues, remain unaffected, while amount of the fat cells freeze and die. Once the fat cells are frozen, the body uses its natural healing process, metabolizing the dead cells and removing them from your body as waste.
Liposonix on the other hand, capitalizes on advancing ultrasonic technology, essentially heating fat. According to clinical research, during Liposonix, controlled ultrasonic energy safely penetrates past the skin layer into the subcutaneous fat layer, heating a certain amount of fat cells, causing them to die. Like Cool Sculpting, the body then removes those dead fat cells, naturally through the lymphatic system.
The best way of learning which fat reduction treatment is right for you is by signing up for a free consultation from SKINNEY Medspa. Ranked as the best spa in NYC for non-invasive fat reduction, the professionals at SKINNEY Medspa are your best bet for reducing belly fat, love handles, and other bulges that are keeping you from your ideal body.
