CoolSculpting’s Competition: truSculpt 3D
Body contouring is the hottest aesthetic treatment right now, with individuals looking to reduce stubborn fat and sculpt their bodies.
truSculpt 3D uses radiofrequency (RF) to heat and destroy fat cells. CoolSculpting uses cold temperatures to freeze and kill fat cells.
Both procedures are non-invasive and reduce roughly the same amount of fat thickness (approximately 24 percent) in one treatment.
However, practices with body contouring devices have noted five ways that truSculpt 3D stands out and differs from other body contouring treatments, including CoolSculpting, Liposuction and SculpSure.
In this particular breakdown we’ll shine some like on the differences between CoolSculpting and truSculpt 3D.
truSculpt 3D Has Features to Improve Patient Comfort
When it comes to fat reduction, truSculpt 3D offers improved patient comfort over other radiofrequency (RF) devices.
The truSculpt 3D procedure operates at a different frequency that allows it to heat the fat more deeply and at a uniform temperature.
This feature focuses heat on the fat instead of the patient’s skin. Therefore, the skin does not overheat, and patients avoid the burning sensation felt with other RF devices.
It Offers a Better Fit for More Patients
truSculpt 3D also states that their applicators may fit a larger variety of patient sizes, compared to CoolSculpting’s applicators.
More specifically, truSculpt 3D allows treatment of individuals that may be too large or too small to appropriately fit CoolSculpting hand pieces.
truSculpt 3D Can Improve Skin Quality
Because it is using radiofrequency, truSculpt 3D has been noted to improve skin quality in the treated area, making it tighter and more toned.
CoolSculpting does not have a positive or negative effect on skin laxity, which means you would have to add another treatment on top of it to get the desired results for tightening.
It Is More Cost Effective
With lower consumable prices per use for a practice, the difference between CoolSculpting and truSculpt 3D also shows up in your wallet.
Because truSculpt 3D puts less of a cost strain on a given medical facility, it can then impact treatment cost for patients, making truSculpt 3D a more affordable choice for patients looking for a reliable body contouring option.
truSculpt 3D Has a Shorter Treatment Time
It takes 15 minutes to perform a truSculpt 3D treatment and 35 to 45 minutes to perform a CoolSculpting treatment.
While a provider must be hands-on for the duration of the truSculpt 3D procedure, it certainly is more comforting to have a medical professional nearby during treatment as opposed to CoolSculpting where a medical professional does not need to remain in the room.
