Losing weight is a difficult and frustrating endeavor, not in the least because there are several factors that play into how to much and how quickly you can lose weight. One of those factors is diet. Eating healthy all day every day can be tough, but you do it anyway. The second factor is exercise. Having an exercise regime can help you eliminate fat and build muscle. Last, genetics plays a big part in your weight loss and whether or not you have stubborn areas of fat that won’t budge. If this is the case, then you may have considered body contouring. But with all the treatments out there, it can be hard to decide which one is right for you. The below guide delves deep into the most popular and effective body contouring treatments: BTL Vanquish and CoolSculpting.
BTL Vanquish is a body contouring treatment that doesn’t rely on extreme cold or heat in order to eliminate stubborn fat. This is the only treatment available that uses radiofrequency. This treatment works by placing an applicator above the area of the body being treated. The applicator emits heat and radiofrequency waves capable of destroying fat cells naturally. BTL Vanquish only kills fat cells and does not affect any other tissue. Each treatment session with BTL Vanquish will take around 30 to 45 minutes. BTL Vanquish is comfortable and completely non-invasive. You may feel a bit of a heating sensation as BTL Vanquish works to vanquish those fat cells. There is no downtime and no ill side effects associated with this treatment.
As its name suggests, CoolSculpting uses extreme cold in order to contour the body. For this treatment, the applicator is placed directly on your skin and creates a suctioning motion that pulls up your skin and delivers cold energy. Essentially, your fat cells will be damaged by the extreme cold and the body will naturally get rid of them. The CoolSculpting procedure lasts a little bit longer than BTL Vanquish at around one hour in total. There is also no downtime with CoolSculpting and no ill side effects.
