The Fat-Reduction Faceoff – How Does CoolSculpting in Charlotte Compare to Other Options?

Sarah Yousuff

Are you down to that last layer of fat but just can't seem to make it disappear? You and every other woman on the planet are fighting the same losing battle.

But you can turn the tide in your favor. Nope, going on a diet or spending hours on the treadmill isn't the fix you need. The real answer: an advanced cosmetic procedure.

With so many options out there, it can be tough to decide what will work for you. Don't worry; we've put every treatment to the test, and the clear winner is CoolSculpting.

If you want to lose that final layer of fat, contact Evolve Medical Associates. At Evolve, we offer several cosmetic treatments including BOTOX, laser hair removal and CoolSculpting in Charlotte.

Call 704-935-5745 to schedule a consultation. Until then, read on to find out how CoolSculpting fairs in our fat-reduction faceoff:

Round 1: CoolSculpting vs i-Lipo

i-Lipo is becoming a popular procedure. Unlike regular liposuction, which involves making an incision in the skin and actively vacuuming up excess fat, i-Lipo uses a laser to liquefy the cells, allowing the body to metabolize those flabby layers.

According to WebMD, lasers have also been shown to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, tightening the skin layers. But the treatment is far from perfect.

i-Lipo requires at least two sessions every week for the duration of an entire month. The procedure is painful, and in most cases, will require the administration of a local anesthetic. Plus, you'll have to set aside hours – sometimes days – to rest and recover.

On the other hand, CoolSculpting, which involves freezing the fatty layers, requires just a single session to give you results, according to Zeltiq, the company behind this revolutionary tech. When the fat cells are frozen, they die off and are gobbled up by your body.

A single session can reduce the amount of fat in the targeted area by 25 percent. Every session after that will net you the same results, effectively eliminating everything but the thinnest layer of fat cells in the problem spot.

Winner: CoolSculpting

Round Two: Liposonix vs CoolSculpting

Using ultrasound energy, this new method can tear through fat cells in a given area. And unlike i-Lipo, Liposonix requires just a single session to yield results.

But this treatment has one major setback: It's painful. Unlike CoolSculpting, where discomfort never exceeds a mild pressure, Liposonix patients have reported excessive pain several days after the procedure. With CoolSculpting, you'll be back on your feet immediately.

Winner: CoolSculpting

Final Round: CoolSculpting vs Zerona

Using a laser, Zerona contours your body by melting errant fat tissue that collects around the belly and arms. However, it's got one big issue: This laser struggles to target problem areas, and you can never be quite sure where you're actually going to lose the fat. Even after several sessions, you may not even notice your stomach slim down.

CoolSculpting is the only non-invasive procedure that can target fat cells with pinpoint accuracy.

Winner: CoolSculpting
