2 Minute Read: 

The Information Age and the advent of social media have launched us into a new world of aesthetics and beauty. The demand for treatments that can accentuate silhouettes and transform beauty with less pain has never been higher. While some of these wants might stem from our culture’s increasing desire for instant gratification, others simply come from the desire to experience real results with enhanced comfort.

CoolSculpting® and Emsculpt® are breaking the boundaries of current aesthetic technology, as they no longer require patients to undergo invasive measures to achieve stunning results.

How Is CoolSculpting® and Emsculpt® Less Painful? 

CoolSculpting® and Emsculpt® are designed to address unwanted fatty deposits and less-than-desirable silhouettes. These treatments can be used in multiple areas of the body, including the abdomen, back, hips, thighs, and butt. 

Pain is a subjective concept to quantify from patient to patient; however, CoolSculpting® and Emsculpt® have been universally known as treatments that do not cause patients any real or significant pain. This is due to CoolSculpting® and Emsculpt®’s ability to circumvent damaging the skin for fat reduction or muscle enhancement. CoolSculpting® targets fat cells with controlled cooling, and Emsculpt® applies electromagnetic energy to lax muscles. 

The results of these treatments are slimmer contours (with CoolSculpting®) or more defined and noticeable musculature (with Emsculpt®). 

What Other Benefits of CoolSculpting® and Emsculpt® Help Reduce Pain? 

Because body contouring no longer necessarily involves the invasive incisions required of surgical body contouring, the cannula suction required of liposuction, or the scarring to be expected in a tummy tuck, more patients can experience body-contouring than ever before.

Along with the reduction of pain from the procedure itself, CoolSculpting® and Emsculpt® offer patients a relatively pain-free recovery. 

Unlike surgical treatments that require weeks of downtime, CoolSculpting® and Emsculpt® do not interfere with your day-to-day lifestyle. 

Some patients report minor irritation or soreness caused by the muscle contraction technology of Emsculpt® or the slight numbness and swelling caused by the cryolipolysis (fat freezing) technology of CoolSculpting®. These minor irritations can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication and typically subside within a day.

Non-surgical treatments like CoolSculpting® and Emsculpt® not only offer less painful procedures and zero downtime but versatile applications that yield exciting results. Prospective patients should note that these treatments may not provide the same level of results as surgery. Even so, many patients can benefit from the possibilities offered by these advancements in body contouring technologies.
