What’s the Best Non-Invasive Fat Loss Treatment Out There?

There’s been a lot of buzz lately around non-invasive fat loss treatments, and with so many different options out there it’s difficult to know which one to choose. Over the years we’ve used several machines including Zerona, CoolSculpting, VelaShape, and Laser Lipo — so we’ve been around the block! Here we’ll examine two treatments — CoolSculpting and Novo Lipo — to get down to the nitty-gritty of these treatments and help you decide which one is best for you.

Let’s start out with the basics.

How does it work?

Cool Sculptingcool sculpting procedure

This treatment involves cryolipolysis, which is essentially freezing fat cells. During treatment, an applicator is placed on the patient’s stubborn fat area. That area is then vacuumed and “cooled” for 1-3 hours. After treatment, the frozen fat area gets massaged out for 2-3 minutes.

Novo LipoNovo Lipo procedure

This treatment involves a combination of technologies such as ultrasonic cavitation, radio frequency, and vibration. The stubborn fat area is massaged with the machines that apply 40,000 kHz of focused ultrasound to break up the fat cell membranes. Radio frequency is then applied to warm and melt the remaining debris and begin moving out via lymphatic drainage. The final step is power plate vibration to assist in the lymphatic drainage process where the liquefied fat cells are excreted by the body’s own natural filtration process.

When will I see results?

Cool Sculpting

Results start to show about a 3-6 months after treatment.

Novo Lipo

Results are seen immediately after each treatment.

How much will it cost me?

Cool Sculpting

According to their website, the cost typically ranges between $2,000-$4,000 for a personalized treatment plan depending on the number of areas treated.

Novo Lipo

Our packages range from $699-$1800 and can include multiple areas. The treatment also includes a complimentary weekly meal plan.

Which body areas can be treated?

Cool Sculpting

Thighs, abdomen and flank, bra fat, back fat, under the neck (double chin), and underneath the buttocks.

Novo Lipo

Abdomen, love handles/flanks, arms, thighs, buttocks, back/bra area, under the neck (double chin), and male chest (Pseudogynecomastia).

Is there pain during treatment?

Cool Sculpting

Patients typically feel intense cold paired with pulling as suction is applied from the machine. After treatment, patients will feel a tingling sensation as the area is massaged for 2-3 minutes.

Novo Lipo

There is typically no pain associated with Novo Lipo. Patients usually feel a warm sensation with no discomfort.

How long does each treatment take?

Cool Sculpting

Depending on how many areas you treat, it takes between 1-3 hours.

Novo Lipo

The procedure takes around 45 mins-1 hour per area treated.

What are the risks?

Cool Sculpting

Redness, swelling, bruising and temporary tingling and numbness are common side effects. Other side effects include possible skin damage, leading to ulceration or scarring, prolonged or severe pain, uneven skin texture, abrupt fat layer changes, and paradoxical adipose hyperplasia.

Novo Lipo

For most people, the treatment is painless and doesn’t require any recovery time. You may experience temporary skin sensitivity and slight redness. Minor burns are possible, but rarely occur.

What are other benefits?

Cool Sculpting

It is non-invasive and reduces stubborn fat without the need of surgery. You’ll see an average of 1.3-2.5 inch reduction after 6 weeks.

Novo Lipo

It is non-invasive and non-surgical. Patients have been known to lose up to 1-3 inches on average per treatment. Novo Lipo also helps to tighten the skin and eliminate cellulite by bringing blood circulation to the targeted area. Results are immediate.

Losing weight can be frustrating — and when you follow a healthy diet plan and workout regularly, having extra stubborn fat can be even more challenging. If you choose to go with a non-invasive fat loss treatment to reduce those trouble spots that diet and exercise can’t reach, make sure to do your research and ask the questions above.
