What Areas Are Better To Treat With Ultrashape Or CoolSculpting?

Non-surgical procedures like Ultrashape and CoolSculpting have gained a lot of attention lately, mainly because they're nonsurgical procedures that work well with removing fat cells without cosmetic surgery. Plenty of people see the benefit of getting non-surgical fat removal, especially for stubborn fat bulges that won't go away no matter their diet or healthy lifestyle.

So which areas of the body can Ultrashape and CoolSculpting work on the best? In general, Ultrashape works best if you have a particularly tricky area of the body that you want to reduce the appearance of fat in, like the chin. On the other hand, CoolSculpting works best with treatment sessions that target a wider range of fat, or for reducing fat layer thickness in large areas like the abdomen or thighs.

Ultrashape vs. CoolSculpting

Ultrashape and CoolSculpting are both similar in that they're a form of non-invasive treatment that focuses on fat cell destruction, rather than weight loss or direct fat cell removal. Their primary difference is the type of procedure used to get to this result. These differences (as well as the areas in which they work best) can help you decide which one works best for you.


Ideal areas: thighs, love handles, abdomen

Ultrashape works by using ultrasound energy to induce fat cell destruction in the fatty layers directly underneath your skin. The fat cells in the targeted area rupture and are removed by your body's natural waste removal processes, with visible results as early as two to three weeks after your first treatment.

The reason why Ultrashape works so well on hard-to-reach areas is that the ultrasound energy used to destroy fat doesn't need a flat applicator, unlike other fat reduction methods. It's possible to deliver a precise amount of ultrasound energy to an area like the thighs or love handles since the process doesn't disturb or affect the surrounding tissue. As a non-invasive procedure, there's little to no pain or recovery time required - though this is true of almost every other fat reduction procedure out there.


Ideal areas: bra fat, mid-back fat, lower back

CoolSculpting relies on your body's reaction to extreme cold to get rid of your fat cells. Specifically, it uses a process called cryolipolysis to freeze the fat cells from the inside, which are removed by your body as waste. This process gets rid of the fat cell entirely, which offers it the potential to have long-term to permanent results.

The advantage of using CoolSculpting treatments is that the flat applicators used in the procedure can give you an even removal of fat without having to spend hours of treatment to get there. Office treatments of CoolSculpting take only a few minutes, though their results can take longer to become visible compared to other fat reduction treatments. However, this type of treatment has larger coverage, which makes it an excellent choice for fat layer reduction.

Which Is The Best Choice?

Most non-surgical body contouring treatments work well for patients, but it's largely up to you and your provider to see what option will give you the best results. If you're having trouble deciding, there are three things that you often have to keep in mind:

  • Pain tolerance and skin sensitivity
  • Availability/accessibility of the treatment
  • Kind of fat that needs to be removed

Once you've managed to answer these three questions, getting an idea of what procedure works best for you would be a lot easier. In regards to CoolSculpting vs. Ultrashape, CoolSculpting definitely wins as the best all-around option you can use for fat cell reduction. Ultrashape can also work for you, but only if you don't need a lot of fat to remove - which makes it suitable for some very niche applications. If you want to get the most out of your appointment, CoolSculpting is an excellent option.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "The treatment itself was not uncomfortable. Afterwords, I felt great. I didn't really notice anything for about 30 days. After day 30 until about a month later, I started noticing that my favorite jeans were not as tight anymore. I wasn't having to suck in to get them buttoned. And by that two month period after my CoolSculpting

  • "It's subtle at first, and then a month later you look and go, "Wow - It really did something!" It really moved the bar for me, and I'm feeling better about myself already. It feels so good to put on anything and know I look as good as I've ever looked. And I didn't say that or feel that when I was in my 20's, 30's, and 40's."
