Should I get CoolSculpting or Laser Lipo?

Benefits of CoolSculpting over Laser Lipo:


No downtime

Operates through the skin; no incisions

No need for healing

No anesthesia

Why not get Laser Lipo? It’s safer than regular liposuction, right?

Well…not exactly. The laser can affect more than just the underlying fat. Laser Liposuction actually carries the same risks as regular liposuction which include:

  • Anesthesia risks
  • Accumulating fluid
  • Deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary, and cardiac complications
  • Irregular or Asymmetrical shape/appearance
  • Infection
  • Damage to nerves
  • Damage to blood vessels
  • Damage to lungs
  • Need for surgical revision
  • Swelling
  • Rippling or loose skin
  • Irregular pigmentation
  • Poor wound healing

While you might be thinking of going with Laser Liposuction because it could provide faster results, keep in mind that Laser Liposuction poses many more risks than CoolSculpting. It’s true that you may not see the results of your CoolSculpting treatment for a few weeks, but you will also not be risking much.

Risks of CoolSculpting:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Redness

As you can see, CoolSculpting has much less, and frankly, more minor risks than Laser Liposuction.

Why Choose CoolSculpting vs. Laser Lipo?

CoolSculpting is a safer procedure than Laser Liposuction, can be done within an hour, and offers zero downtime after your treatment. In addition, CoolSculpting costs less than Laser Liposuction. Lastly, CoolSculpting is not reported to be painful. Most patients report feeling a cool sensation and a slight bit of pressure as the fat is sucked up into the device. This is said to be a ‘funny,’ feeling but not one that is uncomfortable.
