trusculpt-vs-coolsculpting.png


When it comes to body contouring, we’re pretty sure you’ve heard the words truSculpt or CoolSculpting.

Followed by that is usually terms like “melt the fat” or “freeze the fat” when referencing these body sculpting technologies.


And often times this is where confusion sets in.

Because there’s much debate on which body contouring technology is better and more effective — to melt fat or to freeze fat.

Not only is this one of the big questions in medical aesthetics today, but it’s also on the minds of many potential clients looking to contour their body without surgery.

 

We know you want to target those areas on the body that can be stubborn and don’t want to let that fat go no matter how hard you exercise or eat right — like the abdomen, flanks, back, arms and even the chin area.

 

But how do all of these body contouring machines compare?

 

Let’s take a look, shall we…
