CoolSculpting uses freezing temperatures to numb the area. Cold temperatures freeze and break down fat cells. The freezing temperatures do not damage other important cells as it does to the fatty cells. There is no damage to the skin from the freezing temperatures.
SculpSure is a laser based treatment. The procedure uses a heat laser belt that utilizes specific wavelengths to heat & eliminate fat cells. The heat only targets the fatty cells and does not harm other tissues. The procedure is non-surgical and only used for cosmetic body procedures. If you are sensitive to cold used by CoolSculpting then SculpSure might be a suitable alternative.
Zerona utilizes cold laser treatment, LLLT (low level laser technology). The laser disrupts the membrane of fatty cells in the body. This membrane disruption, called a transitory pore, is the result of low-level laser stimulation (LLLT). In turn, this prevents the formation of a transitory pore that causes the fatty material to build up and form.
Vanquish essentially heats fat cells to death, using radiofrequency. This unique mechanism can target larger areas of the body compared to other non-invasive fat reduction treatments. Vanquish is similar to other fat reductions treatments like lipo-suction, Venus Freeze, TruSculpt, or UltraShape that also utilizes radio frequency and/or ultrasonic energy to deliver thermal manipulation to fat cells.
Laser Lipolysis uses heat from fiber-optic lasers at various wavelengths to shrink and melt fat cells. The heat from the laser penetrates your fat cells, causing the fat cells to shrink and release the stored fatty acid. Your body then proceeds to flush the dead fat cells from your body over the course of several weeks.
