Why Vanquish is Better Than CoolSculpting

Among non-invasive body contouring treatments, Vanquish and CoolSculpting are known to effectively destroy unwanted fat, so that it’s gone for good. While both procedures offer a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction, with fewer risks, Vanquish consistently comes out on top for a number of reasons.

Continue reading to learn why Vanquish is better than CoolSculpting in terms of results, efficiency, treatment time and area, and safety.

What is Vanquish?

Vanquish is an FDA-approved fat reduction treatment that is nonsurgical and completely noninvasive. Unlike CoolSculpting, which suctions fatty tissue into an applicator and causes tugging and pulling, Vanquish hovers over the abdomen for the entire treatment. That’s right – Vanquish can slim and tone the entire belly without contact or pain!

Vanquish is More Effective Than CoolSculpting

While CoolSculpting has been proven to permanently reduce 20-24% of fat cells in the treated area, Vanquish is able to permanently eliminate 25-30%.

Plus, Vanquish covers the full abdomen, including the front and sides, in a 45-minute treatment. This is in stark contrast to CoolSculpting, which treats a much smaller area of fatty tissue per cycle (about the size of a stick of butter) and necessitates multiple cycles to target each part of the abdomen. At 35-60 minutes per area, CoolSculpting can result in a significantly longer treatment time and cost for patients.

Vanquish Doesn’t Have Any Known Complications

Safety is one of the main reasons why Vanquish is better than CoolSculpting. Because it is contactless, nonsurgical, and noninvasive, patients don’t feel much of anything during or after a Vanquish treatment. This means that they avoid side effects and risks that are common with CoolSculpting.

In fact, CoolSculpting is known to cause a number of temporary as well as long-term complications. Following fat-freezing, most women and men experience some redness, swelling, itching, bruising, tenderness, and numbness than can last several weeks.

Additionally, CoolSculpting can result in a rare, but serious, condition called Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia (PAH) in which fat cells proliferate rather than die. As a result, the area becomes enlarged and hard in the months after a CoolSculpting treatment.

The only solution to CoolSculpting PAH is surgical liposuction, which is something that many patients were hoping to avoid in the first place!

Comparatively, PAH has never been associated with Vanquish.
