Vanquish vs Coolsculpting: Which is Better for Fat Reduction?

Vanquish vs Coolsculpting: Which is Better for Fat Reduction? - BeatitudeAre you thinking about Vanquish or other fat reducing treatments in San Diego?

Vanquish is a leading fat-reduction treatment in San Diego and beyond. It represents a new generation of technology for giving you the toned and youthful body you want. That said, it’s not the only option: Many people ask about Coolsculpting.

Both treatments can be effective, but it’s very important to truly understand the differences.

Vanquish: The No. 1 Radio Frequency Cellulite Treatment

In the past, most patients had to settle for invasive treatment options when it came to removing fat. These required incisions that could be uncomfortable and take a long time to heal. Now, with the revolutionary Vanquish system, fat can be eliminated without scalpels or any other equipment ever touching the body.

Like many of today’s most effective aesthetic treatments, such as Venus Freeze, Vanquish uses radio frequency (RF) energy. This is the same energy that can carry transmissions like your favorite music. It is useful because it can be directed to very precise target points throughout the body in a single treatment.

Vanquish works through deep tissue heating, directing RF energy to the fat deposits deep beneath the skin. Treatments take place across four sessions spaced about a week apart. During this time, even the RF equipment itself never actually touches the patient’s body.

Patients have widely reported that Vanquish is painless. As it heats underlying fat, it produces a warm feeling that can be pleasant. Brief redness and swelling are possible, but aren’t experienced by all patients. It’s important to maintain hydration before and after a Vanquish procedure.

What You Need to Know about Coolsculpting

Coolsculpting is a form of cryotherapy, which kills fat cells by freezing them. Like Vanquish, it can produce rapid results. However, most people find that Vanquish is the superior option for them. Coolsculpting has a number of limitations that can be difficult to overcome.

Due to the nature of Coolsculpting, it has to be performed with caution. Only one section of the body can be targeted at a time. Each session takes about an hour – so scheduling a number of back-to-back sessions can be uncomfortable and time-consuming.

Many patients report significant discomfort – or even pain – during the first few minutes of a Coolsculpting session. Although Coolsculpting doesn’t risk the same complications as surgical liposuction, it takes longer to recover from treatment than with Vanquish.

Patient Stories Dr. Chang has an eye for symmetry and aesthetics. I went in for a consultation to have fillers under my eyes. Instead I was educated on my facial anatomy. I agreed to some fillers in my forehead and cheeks instead and could not be more pleased with the outcome.
