“To keep the body in a good health is a duty otherwise we shall not be able to keep the mind strong and clear.”-, Buddha
In today’s fast-growing world where people are busy with their work and want to enjoy weekends at parties, maintaining a good figure and health becomes a tedious job. For this, science has made various advancements to get rid of stubborn fat. Treatments like laser liposuction and cool sculpting act as a blessing for you if you are one of those who want to look good and lose weight without sweating in the gym or being on diet food. But, let us understand the basic difference between them!
People who prefer to go for laser liposuction should not have much fat content in their body and it works best for people who are near to their ideal weight. It is not a weight loss surgery, rather it works best for the people who have somebody who is deformed and wants to get rid of mulish fat. Laser liposuction is a nominal invasive cosmetic procedure. It uses a laser to burn the fat at the desired area.
Cool sculpting on the other hand is for those people who are otherwise healthy and need some transformation in somebody where the fat is stubborn and not going down through workout or diet. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure where tools such as a cooling applicator are used to freeze out the unwanted fat.
In the laser liposuction process, results can be seen immediately in the form of less swollen parts. It may take up to 6 months to get the desired results.
In the case of cool sculpting, it takes longer to see the results. At times it may take up to three weeks to see some form of change in the body.
Both of them take almost 40-60 minutes per area in a session. It’s just that after laser liposuction you need to take 2-3 days’ rest to go on work while you can start working immediately in case of cool sculpting.
Side effects of laser liposuction can be seen on the body and mind in the form of pain, discomfort, or numbness in the treatment area. There could also be some adverse effects like discoloration of the skin of the treated area. Cool sculpting too shows side effects like pain, redness, aching, insensitivity, tingling, bruising as per skin.
In both cases, these side effects go in 2-3 weeks else you should always consult your doctor in case of dire consequences.
Though, doctors at ShineMD take full precautions and understand the skin of the patient first. If the skin requires certain preparation so that it does not go through the side effects, the process of pre-surgery procedures is first taken care of. At ShineMD, surgeons do not let the patients go through the stress of having side effects and thus results are usually successful.
It becomes really important in both cases to have a well experienced, qualified, and licensed provider since these services account for lifestyle changes and are not just mere surgeries.
In both cases, people who are obese and expecting miracles should not go for these services. People who are on high dose medication or have serious diseases like diabetes, cardiac issues, and neuropathy are not the correct candidates. Even breastfeeding mothers or menstruating women or pregnant ladies should not go for it since these procedures follow a list of side effects. Even people who underwent some major surgery in the recent past or have some genetic history of lifestyle diseases should always make a second thought. Contact us today to learn more!
