Reporter:

I’m Jesicca Kirk and I’m here with Dr. Roz from Wilmington dermatology Center and Dr. Roz we received a number of questions from our viewers about the difference between cool sculpting and the liposonix. What exactly is the difference?

 

Dr Roz:

So the main difference is that coolsculpting uses cold to freeze the fat and liposonix uses heat to melt the fat but there are a couple of other differences as well and as you can see this is the coolsculpting device and what it does is you suck a fat pad up and it sits there freezing the fat cells and that kills the fat.

This one you can see you can kind of contour it a little bit more and you kind of place it directly over the areas and that uses ultrasound to actually heat the fat and melt it.

 

Reporter:

So which one is better – Liposonix or CoolSculpting?

Liposonix or CoolSculpting?
Liposonix or CoolSculpting?

 

Dr Roz:

They’re really very similar in their results and it just depends on how you’re fat is distributed. If you just have a little bit of pooch right under your belly button coolsculpting is great but if you have pooch here in a pooch here pooch here pooch here the liposonix is going to be better because I can actually tailor it to fit where the fat is.

 

Reporter:

So how does the process which with each of these work?

 

Dr Roz:

So with the coolsculpting basically you come in we put a gel pad on to protect the skin from the cold and then this is a vacuum and it literally sucks the fat up and it’s just like a panini press just sitting there killing the fat cells and that’s for an hour in each section. So to do your belly on your size it takes about three hours.

 

With the liposonix we basically mark you and each little area you can see you know you have to each little area and that’s on each little area for a minute and then that just kind of goes around you can do a belly in size in about an hour.

 

Reporter:

Ok so liposonix is a lot faster and you can do lot more so what’s the benefit of the coolsculpting then?

 

Dr Roz:

It just depends on what you have. Right. The cost is very similar and it just depends on if you have a little bit or a lot.
