Hot Vs. Cold Body Sculpting: Everything You Need to Know

Body sculpting is more than a fad. Yes, it’s trendy, but only because more people are hearing about it and giving it a try. Part of the attraction is that hot and cool sculpting is perfect for those who may do their best and live a healthy lifestyle but still have stubborn areas where our bodies seem to store excess fat, which means most of us. Some of us store a little winter weight in our midsection, our thighs, or our backsides. And while that too might be trendy right now, it’s not for everyone. Neither is body sculpting, but it sure is effective.

Hot Sculpting destroys fat cells with heat from a laser, while Cool Sculpting kills fat cells by freezing them.

Don’t worry; the temperature fluctuations aren’t severe enough to harm other types of cells. Cool and warm sculpting procedures are FDA approved and entail no needles, anesthetic, or recovery time. Both can treat the same regions, and the fat cells are eliminated permanently as our lymphatic system disposes of the damaged fat cells. You’ll get your ultimate results in around three months using either method.

What is Hot Sculpting?

Hot Sculpting is a fat-reduction technique that uses laser light to heat and destroy fat cells. Each session of Hot Sculpting lasts about 25 minutes. The majority of patients find the treatment to be mostly painless. However, some complain that the hot sensation is unpleasant and causes them to sweat. After the procedure, the hot sculpting tool is removed from the treatment area, and the skin may seem red and feel warm. Patients can resume their everyday routines. Dead fat cells are gradually eliminated from the body over the next several weeks via natural detoxification processes.

What is Cool Sculpting?

Cool Sculpting is a treatment that uses hand-held suction equipment to draw fat from beneath the skin into a vacuum device. This technique focuses on tiny regions of the body to freeze persistent excess fat. The frozen fat deposits are sometimes referred to as “ice crystals.” The body normally excretes ice crystals as part of its regular activities.

The Cool Sculpting technique involves a lot of tugging and squeezing. This is due to the suction and sucking of the fat cells under the skin. Cool Sculpting might be unpleasant for people with sensitive skin or more extensive fat tissue.

Which Procedure is Best for Me?

Although hot and cool sculpting is similar, there are some critical differences to be aware of. The primary drawbacks of Cool Sculpting include uncomfortable pulling, tugging, and numbness during treatment.

Both therapies are easy to do, and they efficiently destroy excess fat. And both therapies have been approved by the FDA and are considered far safer than intrusive surgeries. And while Warm Sculpting has become the treatment of choice for individuals wishing to avoid lasers, Cool Sculpting offers the same benefits without the high-tech involvement.
