CoolSculpting vs Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation: Which Is Better?

By now you’ve probably heard of CoolSculpting, which is one of many treatments on the market available for fat removal. There are radio, TV, and Internet ads for it everywhere. Many medspas and cosmetic/plastic surgery clinics offer it as well. However, one alternative treatment is quickly gaining popularity as a more effective, safe, and affordable alternative to CoolSculpting. That procedure is called Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation.

How Does CoolSculpting Remove Fat?

CoolSculpting removes fat by “freezing” fat cells, which effectively makes them collapse thus killing them. After these fat cells die, your body’s other cell systems kick in to remove the dead fat cells. CoolSculpting is FDA-approved to work on only certain areas of the body: chin/jawline areas, thighs, abdomen, flanks, bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and upper arms.

How Does Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation Remove Fat?

Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation uses ultrasonic (high-frequency sound waves) to essentially liquefy fat cells. Your body’s lymphatic system then kicks into gear to remove these melted, dead fat cells. The handpiece used also plays a role in shaping your target areas, “chiseling” and breaking down tissue to give you a slimmer appearance. 

Below we are going to highlight the key aspects of CoolSculpting vs Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation and designate a clear winner to each:

Fewer Treatments To See Results? Winner: Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation

According to the CoolSculpting website - it may take up to 1 to 3 months to see results. This is because it takes time for the fat cells to be broken down by their proprietary freezing method and to be expelled from your body.

Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation, on the other hand, works within a matter of days. The fat cells are immediately liquefied by the ultrasonic waves and your body’s lymphatic system kicks into gear to get rid of the dead fat cells right away.

Which is More Comfortable? Winner: Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation

The CoolSculpting website says:

During the procedure, you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity, and sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental or submandibular area treatment.”

Yikes. 

Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation, on the other hand, is pain-free. In fact, our clients have told us that Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation is a relaxing experience. There’s no anesthesia needed, no cutting, and no sutures. That means no scars or downtime.

Which Has Less Downtime? Winner: Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation

With Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation, you can return back to your daily regular routine immediately after the procedure. There’s no need to take days off of work. Some of our clients even come in on their lunch breaks! That’s because the procedure is painless, relaxing, and can be completed in an hour or less.

On the other hand, there can be lasting side-effects with CoolSculpting. Directly from the website, it says:

Rare side effects may also occur. CoolSculpting® may cause a visible enlargement in the treated area which may develop two to five months after treatment and requires surgical intervention for correction.

Which Costs Less? Winner: Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation

CoolSculpting can cost upwards of $500 and up per treatment - and you’ll most likely need multiple treatments.

Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation is typically 30% to 50% less, and just in case you need multiple treatments we’re offering package deals like our buy one get one free deal. Therefore you can take advantage of an overall less cost-per-treatment AND bundled savings!

Which is FDA-Approved? Winner: Tie

Both CoolSculpting and Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation are FDA Approved. So regardless of which treatment you choose, you know that it’s backed by rigorous testing and is generally safe for most people. Note: You should always consult a physician or licensed health professional prior to choosing one of these treatments.

Which is More Popular? Winner: CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is owned by Allergan, a giant in the cosmetic procedures industry. Allergan has pumped millions into digital, TV, and radio campaigns to promote its procedure.

Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation, which is a bit of a tongue-twister in itself, is rebranded by many medspas as their own name (Ultra-Cavi, LipoSculpt, etc.). However, the way that the treatment works, despite the differences in the name, is fundamentally the same.
