CoolShaping vs Coolsculpting

CoolShaping and CoolSculpting are procedures that have become increasingly popular, these treatments can get rid of unwanted fat without the need for surgery. CoolShaping and Coolsculpting are both based on the science and method of cryolipolysis. It’s a non-surgical medical treatment used to eliminate fat cells. 

Cryolipolysis is a cold-based technology that involves a non-invasive device that is applied in certain areas to cool the fat cells. Once cooled they will have a crystalized form and the cells will slowly metabolize by your body. This procedure leaves no scars, there’s no need for incisions and it can be done on your lunch break.  

Here at VIDA, we’ve upgraded our CoolShaping machines to the new cutting-edge technology  of the CoolShaping 2 machines.

Differences between CoolShaping and Coolsculpting

One of the main differences between CoolShaping and Coolsculpting is that the devices used for treatment are mildly different. They do two different procedures, yet both devices follow the same fundamental procedures for the treatment, as both CoolShaping and Coolsculpting devices are patented.

But with CoolShaping, various areas can be treated at the same time since various applicators can be used. CoolShaping also features LED technology and can support any other treatment as well. 

CoolShaping advantages and disadvantages

  • Multi-technology, in addition to CoolShaping, the vacuum and the Led system generate better results.
  • Zero downtime, that means once you finish the procedure, you can go back to work or get ready for that dinner date. 
  • CoolShaping is more expensive than CoolSculpting because it does not have a consumable, making the treatment very expensive compared to CoolSculpting.
