CoolSculpting Versus EMSCULPT: Which is Right for You?

If you’ve been exploring your options for eliminating unwanted body fat without surgery, you’ve come to the right place.

As a skilled aesthetics specialist, Susan J. Seman, DO, FACOS, offers several options for nonsurgical body enhancement that targets unwanted fat without the need for incisions or downtime.

Dr. Seman specializes in both CoolSculpting® and EMSCULPT® noninvasive body treatments. She can determine which treatment is a good fit for you based on your aesthetic goals and medical history.

A closer look at CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive treatment that uses freezing technology to destroy stubborn fat cells beneath the skin’s surface. This is the fat that can be hard to lose no matter how much you exercise or how healthy your diet is.

CoolSculpting technology is effective at treating fat on several areas of the body, including the belly, thighs, upper arms, and love handles.

A special adapter allows Dr. Seman to also treat the excess fat deposits that can build up beneath the chin and give a double-chin appearance.

A closer look at EMSCULPT

EMSCULPT is a nonsurgical treatment that not only burns off excess fat, it can also help you build muscle and tone and shape your body. The technology uses the same muscle-contraction concept that’s involved when doing squats and crunches.

Electromagnetic energy stimulates muscle contractions, and you essentially get an intense muscle workout without doing the work. In fact, EMSCULPT technology reaches deep muscles that you generally can’t work on with traditional exercises.

Repeated contractions of the muscles in your treatment area can help you build stronger muscles and improve muscle tone. The treatment can be used in your abdomen, thighs, and buttocks without surgery or downtime.

The comfort factor

While both CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT technologies are noninvasive, you can expect to feel some discomfort during your treatment. Dr. Seman and her team will make sure you’re as comfortable as possible, and you can sit or lie back and relax throughout each treatment.

Following either treatment, you can go back to your usual routine without any limitations. After an EMSCULPT session, you may have soreness in your treated muscles for a few days.

After your treatment with CoolSculpting’s freezing technology, you may have some numbness and redness in the treatment area for a few days.

Typically, both EMSCULPT and CoolSculpting technologies require only one treatment to achieve results. However, Dr. Seman will customize a treatment plan that outlines what you can expect from your procedure and how many sessions you may need to create the body of your dreams.

It’s all about your goals

Both CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT are treatment options for men and women looking to reduce unwanted fat without invasive procedures. The technology is safe for anyone who doesn’t have serious health issues.

Dr. Seman will spend time reviewing your medical history, existing health, and overall goals before recommending a treatment. She can help you make informed decisions about which treatment would be best for you and ensure you have reasonable expectations for your outcome.

If you’re interested solely in getting rid of hard-to-lose fat from your belly, arms, or thighs, you may be a candidate for CoolSculpting.

If your goals include building a six-pack, improving muscle tone, and eliminating exercise-resistant fat, then EMSCULPT may be the better choice.
