CoolSculpting Vs Strawberry Lipo LaserIn recent years, new non-invasive techniques have been invented to help individuals reduce unwanted fat. Two of the most popular options are Strawberry Lipo Laser (aka Lila, I-Lipo, Strawberry & Cream) and Cool Sculpting. While they are totally different procedures, they both have a singular focus, to rid a specific area of the body of fat that’s difficult to banish with diet and exercise alone.
Strawberry Lipo Laser is a technique that involves the use of 60 lasers to break down triglycerides, free fatty acids, and glycerol inside of fat cells in your body. While these fats don’t leave your body right away like they would in a typical liposuction procedure, they are broken down through the lymphatic system, and your body can and will expel them through vigorous exercise over a relatively short period of time. We recommend Zaaz the 12 minute hour workout.
The procedure is straightforward in the fact that you will get to relax while your technician places laser apertures on an area where the fat is being targeted. The whole procedure is done over eight to ten visits. Clients have reported no pain or discomfort with Lipo Laser. This is not your traditional liposuction. One of the main reasons this is a popular choice between the options available.
One potential drawback with Lipo Laser is 1 area is treated at a time with two to three sessions per week for 4 weeks that may take a bit of time. While long-term treatments can be done, working on several areas can take some time if you have a lot of fat to lose. The great news, it is completely non-invasive and totally pain free. It’s also done in eight relatively short sessions. Some people get Laser Lipo in the morning and end up at work by the afternoon. Luckily sessions are 10 to 20 minutes of time and run between $250 and $325.
Coolsculpting, like Lipo Laser, is a non-invasive procedure that targets and helps remove excess fat on the body. However, Coolsculpting freezes the fat cells and destroys them in the body so they can be expelled through vigorous exercise.
Coolsculpting is a completely unique procedure which uses suction to draw areas of fat from the body between two cooling panels. The cooling panels then freeze the fat cells in the body. This can be a painful experience and some have said the numbness is really very uncomfortable. Each session takes 75 minutes per section. So a stomach area could potentially take you 5 hours or more to complete. Patients are fully awake during the process and some offices provide something for patients to do, like watch a movie or read a magazine because of the length of time. Coolsculpting doesn’t leave any marks on the body or damage the skin.
In fact, the procedure is somewhat difficult to administer when only a small amount of fat is trying to be removed, because of the suction and freezing process. That generally means that people undergoing Coolsculpting have a considerable amount of excess fat to lose, often in a variety of areas over the body. It is not particularly beneficial and not commonly recommended for people just looking to tone up or get rid of that last five pounds.
Coolsculpting generally only requires two sessions to see noticeable results, can take up to 5 hours to complete and runs between $3500 and $4500 per treatment / session.
