A few more reps at the gym and a decrease in caloric intake have become critical to your attempts at reducing unwanted fat deposits in problem areas. But those obstinate pockets of fat still seem to linger on your thighs, abdomen, back and hips. They should have melted away by now. It feels like your body is playing tricks on you. Regardless, it’s time to get more aggressive.
You’ve heard about two effective non surgical procedures that can eliminate the fat with no downtime and are virtually pain free. Coolsculpting, which freezes selected areas of fat cells until they die, dissolve and are expelled from the body. And Vanquish Fat Reduction, which deep heats targeted fat cells and destroys them, then also being expelled from the body.
They sound like amazing choices! It’s difficult to choose. Should you flip a coin? Of course not. First, you should understand more about the two procedures and then decide for yourself which one might be best for you.
Coolsculpting and Vanquish, although they deliver amazing results, are not a one-size-fits-all solution.
Both procedures are better suited for patients who only need to shed a minimal amount of fat and not intended for patients who are focused on losing weight. For people who expect to see immediate results with Coolsculpting, you’ll have to be patient. It could take several weeks to notice a distinct reduction in fat around problem areas. The fat needs to dissolve and be naturally removed from the body before you see a difference which takes about 90 days.
Vanquish uses radio frequency heat to destroy fat, so patients with metal in their bodies between their neck and knees are not candidates. That goes for people with metal knee replacements and pacemakers. The heat from the Vanquish procedure won’t react well to metal. Also women who are lactating are not candidates for Vanquish.
Both procedures are quick and performed specifically for contouring. Obese patients with a significant amount of weight to lose won’t see much of a difference in their size, even several weeks after target areas have been treated. Patients with about 10 to 20 pounds should find that Coolsculpting and Vanquish are great treatments for slimming those annoying pudgy thighs, abdomen and hips. Those who will eventually see a reduction in fat should understand that it takes time for the fat tissue to dissolve, along with the time it takes for the body to naturally eliminate the tissue.
Patients may experience some after effects like redness and soreness. These effects are mildly uncomfortable and dissipate soon after the treatment.
Coolsculpting and Vanquish Fat Reduction are two remarkable non-invasive solutions for slimming paunchy areas on your body. It will take a little time to see the results, but it’s well worth the wait, once you see the slimmer, contoured, tighter body you’ll get.
