So, you decided you want to try body contouring treatments. Thanks to new amazing medical technology, there are a few different body sculpting methods to choose from. This means that the traditional, invasive liposuction treatments that leave a permanent scar are now a thing of the past. Let us examine two of the most popular techniques, body cavitation (aka cavi-lipo) and coolsculpting and see how they both add up.
Coolsculpting works by freezing fat cells which in turn begin to kill and collapse fat cells. Your cells in your body detect these dying cells and are naturally broken down and flushed out of your body. There is no substantial recovery time after a cool sculpting treatment and fat can be reduced up to 20 to 25% in the targeted area. The great thing about this technique is that it is completely non invasive. Instead, a machine is run over your skin and is relatively pain free (although some report a feeling of general discomfort). Coolscultping can result in some unwanted side effects. These range from general discomfort to more serious side effects including nerve damage and paradoxical adipose hyperplasia. This is when the fat cells in the treatment site actually grow larger instead of smaller).
So how does body cavitation (Cavi-Lipo) compare to coolsculpting? Cavi-lipo works by using ulta-sound waves to break down fat cells which are then naturally eliminated from the body. While coolsculpting has many amazing benefits, cavi-lipo seems to really take the cake for a variety of reasons. First of all, coolsculping is the only FDA approved to work on 5 treatment areas (abs, love handles, outer and inner thighs, and chin). Cavi-lipo on the other hand is approved to use everywhere on the body. This is great news for those looking to target other problem areas such as the neck, buttock and upper arms. Second, Cavi-Lipo is usually less expensive than coolsculpting. Patients report that they can see results immediately after treatment and continue to improve days and weeks after the initial treatment. Last, Cavi-lipo is also reported to have less side effects than coolsculpting. However, one should be aware that some side effects are possible including skin sensitivity, mild bruising and fluid build up at the treatment site.
