Understanding the Difference Between EMSculpt and CoolSculpting

Do you have body fat that just won’t budge? Do you want to build muscle definition, burn fat, and improve tone? There are two body sculpting treatments for toning the body and reducing those stubborn pockets of fat: EMSculpt and CoolSculpting.

If you’re contemplating getting a body contouring treatment, it’s best to know your options and how they align with your specific goals with your body. From fat freezing to fat melting, let’s take a look at how these two innovative body contouring treatments compare.

EMSculpt vs. CoolSculpting

Do you know that thin, pinchable layer of fat on your tummy? The harsh reality is that no amount of dieting and exercise will eliminate that completely. Fortunately, there is a solution that is more effective than trying fad diets and target exercises. That pesky thin layer of fat that sits below the skin and above the muscles can be treated with EMSculpt effectively.

However, when it comes to those thicker pockets of pinchable fat that you can grip between your finger and thumb, the better treatment is CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting will only treat stubborn pockets of fat. However, CoolSculpting will not build muscle.

EMSculpt, on the other hand, will treat thinner layers of fat and will also build muscle. The treatment is designed to take your muscle building and fat burning to the next level whether you exercise 7 days a week, or you are too busy to make it to the gym even once a week.

In many cases, candidates choose to get CoolSculpting first to remove thicker pockets of fat before transitioning to EMSculpt to tackle the thinner layers, while also enhancing muscle definition. For candidates who don’t have much pinchable fat, they may choose to go straight to EMSculpt to start breaking down the thinner layer of fat while also toning and building muscle.

CoolSculpting can target pinchable pockets of fat that sit under the chin, in the bra area, outer and inner thighs, the back of the arms, flanks and the abdomen, between the rib cage, and the pelvis.

How? Using no knives, suction hoses, or needles, CoolSculpting uses a patented technology that uses controlled cooling to target and kill the stubborn fat cells that remain despite diet and exercise. In the weeks that follow treatment, your body will naturally process the fat and eliminate dead cells.

Presently in Canada, EMSculpt can tone/build muscle while also breaking down fat in the abdomen/flanks and the buttocks by using high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, which triggers 20,000 powerful contractions up to 100% of their full potential. Contractions like these are unattainable voluntarily – even for elite athletes. Later this year, there will be treatments available for deltoids, biceps, triceps, calves, hamstrings, and quadriceps.

At CüR Laser and Skin, we offer both EMSculpt and CoolSculpting. We are one of the only CoolSculpting clinics who carry a Z Wave machine which used after the treatment to massage the treated area effectively by transmitting powerful radial shockwaves into the skin tissue and providing up to 40% better results.
