BodyFX vs. CoolSculpting
- Posted on: Mar 14 2019
For women in New York who want to look their best, there are multiple attractive options for non-surgical fat reduction. These non-invasive procedures use natural powers like heat and cold to remove stored fat cells and help provide a smoother, more toned appearance to the body. Many people choose these procedures because they continue to struggle with stubborn deposits of fat in their “problem areas” despite diet, exercise and living a healthy lifestyle.
When women in Manhattan think about the upcoming swimsuit season, they may want to act now to begin the process of non-surgical fat reduction. These procedures take some time to reach their optimal effects, so acting quickly can help people to achieve the results they desire in the season of fun in the sun.
BodyFX vs. CoolSculpting: Which Is Right for You?
Both BodyFX and CoolSculpting can serve as non-invasive, non-surgical methods to help people achieve a liposuction-like result. For people with small, persistent areas of fat reduction, these procedures can make a real difference. We believe that BodyFX, in particular, is an excellent choice for NYC women who want to make the most of their appearance without surgery.
Non-Surgical Fat Reduction For Your Body
While both BodyFX and CoolSculpting are non-invasive, BodyFX offers more options to customize your treatment specifically to the contour and shape of your body and the results that you desire. In both cases, these procedures remove fat cells over time. BodyFX destroys fat cells through radiofrequency heat, which produces apoptotic death in fat cells. On the other hand, CoolSculpting uses cold to crystallize, freeze and kill those cells.
For this reason, women choosing BodyFX feel a warm heat and a vacuum sensation during the procedure as the fat cells are pulled away. This can include mild discomfort, but many people find it to be more tolerable than the extreme cold sensations and intense pressure that accompany CoolSculpting. During the procedure, you’ll also have an opportunity to express yourself if you are uncomfortable or concerned with the treatment. There’s no need for a recovery period after a BodyFX treatment; you can return right away to your busy New York City lifestyle.
After all, a BodyFX procedure is a hands-on, interactive process. You’ll be constantly speaking with your professional treatment provider as the fat cells are melted away. CoolSculpting is typically an unattended procedure; you’d be connected to the applicator device and then left to read or use a laptop. Many women feel much more in control of their treatment when they can communicate directly with their treating professional throughout the process.
In addition, the devices used by our New York City professionals provide immediate and ongoing feedback about the temperature of the skin. This enables us to ensure that the entire area receives a uniform, even treatment. An automatic temperature cut-off regulates the temperature throughout your treatment, providing additional comfort and safety. On the other hand, some women experience significant bruising, swelling and soreness after a CoolSculpting procedure.
Tighten Skin and Reduce Cellulite with BodyFX
Most significantly, BodyFX doesn’t just remove fat cells, it also addresses one of the most important aspects of body contouring: skin tightening. CoolSculpting technology does not tighten remaining skin, unlike the radiofrequency heat used in BodyFX. In addition, BodyFX can improve the appearance of cellulite, one of the most common concerns of Manhattan women who want to improve their bodies. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, is not recommended for cellulite.
Because of the technologies used in the procedure, BodyFX produces smooth results. On the other hand, CoolSculpting often produces smooth results but can result in sudden step-offs or an uneven look when one area was treated beside an untreated area. There is no downtime associated with a BodyFX treatment and no reports of long-term complications with this technology.
Fit Fat Reduction into Your Lifestyle
BodyFX can fit into your busy lifestyle. In general, each BodyFX treatment takes around 15 to 30 minutes. On the other hand, CoolSculpting generally takes around one hour per each applicator site. To achieve the best results, four to eight weekly sessions are needed to get the look that you desire. As you go through the process, you will begin to see gradual improvement in the texture and feel of your skin as it becomes softer and smoother. You can easily come in on your lunch break for each of your BodyFX treatments.
