CoolSculpting and TruSculpt 3D: how to get a flat belly without suffering

If it’s hard for some people to lose weight, it’s even harder for them to get rid of stubborn fat in certain parts of the body. Most women store fat in their hips, buttocks and thighs, while men tend to accumulate it around their midsection.

Despite the existence of numerous methods for losing weight and getting a flat stomach, body fat sometimes resists them all. Fortunately, modern technology offers various treatments that can help you achieve concrete results. And when you combine them with a healthy lifestyle (including a healthy diet and exercise), the outcome can be truly impressive.

Getting a flat stomach without surgery

Liposuction, a technique that has been around for 25 years now, consists of inserting a cannula in a specific region of the body to remove excess fat. Although it’s considered a minor surgical procedure, it still has a fair share of drawbacks, such as pain, bruising and a risk of infection, among others.

Luckily, techniques have become more refined over time. If you don’t much care for the idea of undergoing surgery, you may be interested in innovative treatments like TruSculpt 3D and CoolSculpting, two painless procedures that don’t require injections, incisions or anesthesia. Although both of these are effective on various fronts, each one has certain unique aspects that you should know about.

CoolSculpting: destroying fat cells through freezing

Created by Harvard University researchers, the CoolSculpting procedure permanently destroys excess fat cells. CoolSculpting employs cryolipolysis (the breakdown of fat through freezing) to crystallize the fat contained in the adipocytes, killing the cells so that the body can eliminate them naturally.

CoolSculpting offers real results, although they may take longer to see than those obtained with TruSculpt.

TruSculpt 3D: eliminating fat and toning the skin

With the aid of an electrode, high-intensity heat is distributed evenly over the region under treatment for a period of four minutes. This 45 °C heat is applied to a 40 cm² area, reaching a depth of 7 to 14 mm beneath the skin. The heat eradicates the fat cells, which are then eliminated naturally along with the body’s other waste products, all without pain or downtime to recuperate after the procedure.

You’ll be happy to know that truSculpt 3D is every bit as safe as CoolSculpting, with no risk of burns (despite the laser), infection or other complications.

Numerous areas of the body can be treated with impressive results. Your tummy, thighs, love handles, double chin, arms and saddlebags can all be freed of that stubborn fat that has resisted even your most sustained efforts!

You’ll also be happy to know that, besides eliminating fat, truSculpt is the only device that can genuinely claim to tone the skin.
