Main Differences Between EmSculpt® and CoolSculpting® Elite
There are a few key differences between these two treatments, even though they both aim to improve contour and slim areas of concern. Firstly, the methods that are used differ as EmSculpt® uses electromagnetic fields to encourage muscle growth, while CoolSculpting® Elite kills fat cells using low temperatures.
EmSculpt® is more suited to people that want to get a more toned appearance because it builds muscle fibers. However, CoolSculpting® Elite is more effective for removing larger areas of fat when exercise and diet are not effective. You may even be able to have these treatments in tandem with one another – CoolSculpting® Elite first to remove fat, and then EmSculpt® to tone and define your muscles for a visible six-pack.
It is important to consider what your goals are when deciding which treatment is best for you. The expert dermatologists at Krauss Dermatology can advise you and help you make your decision.
EmSculpt® and CoolSculpting® Elite Similarities
The main similarity between EmSculpt® and CoolSculpting® Elite is that they are both pain-free non-invasive treatments. They are both quick treatments that don’t require any downtime to recover afterward too.
Am I a Candidate for EmSculpt® or CoolSculpting® Elite?
Patients who have some weight to lose or who are close to their ideal weight with discrete bulges they wish to eliminate may be better candidates for CoolSculpting® Elite. If you are close to your ideal weight and want to tone and strengthen your muscles in the abdomen or buttocks, EmSculpt® is the perfect treatment for you. However, if you are looking to remove more fat in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, love handles, bra fat, arms and double chin, CoolSculpting® Elite is more suitable.
Both treatments are designed to target specific areas but neither result in actual weight loss, so if you want to lose pounds, diet and exercise should be your priority. Get in touch with Krauss Dermatology and we can help you decide which treatments best fit your goals.
