CoolSculpting Vs. Morpheus8

Getting rid of stubborn fat pockets and loose skin can feel like a never-ending battle! And most of us don’t have time to undergo surgery to alleviate those. So, have you considered non-surgical options but aren’t sure which option is best for you?

Why Should I Consider Non-Surgical Body Contouring?

Most fat removal procedures require invasive plastic surgery. This can put your life on hold, as you must take off from work and daily activities to recover. Other patients may have medical conditions that prevent them from having safe body contouring surgery. Therefore, non-surgical alternatives have become the ‘go-to’ treatment for fat removal and body contouring!

Regarding non-invasive body contouring treatments, Morpheus8 and CoolSculpting are two of the most popular options available on the market. Both of these treatments require little to no recovery time and aftercare and can significantly improve the appearance of your body. Which option is right for you? Let’s briefly go over each procedure and discuss their differences.

What Is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an innovative treatment that utilizes a combination of two highly effective techniques, microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy, to address skin laxity (looseness) and fat reduction. This versatile procedure can be applied to various areas, including the face, neck, abdomen, thighs, and more.

Morpheus8 is particularly beneficial for individuals seeking more than just fat reduction, as it effectively targets multiple concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and loose or sagging skin.

Morpheus8’s results are pretty dramatic, as it is a multifaceted treatment option. About three to six sessions are typically required, but this can vary based on the treatment area, size, and desired results.

This device is excellent for people with fat and skin laxity issues. The goal is to remodel the fat and then tighten the skin, which Morpheus8 effectively achieves.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment for reducing body fat. It is a popular alternative to liposuction because it uses a non-surgical approach to eliminate stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet or exercise. Like Morpheus8, CoolSculpting can be used on most areas of the body.

During a CoolSculpting session, your healthcare provider will expose the fat cells beneath your skin’s surface to extremely low temperatures. This causes the fat cells to die and leave the body. The treatment is relatively short and usually lasts 30 minutes to an hour. Results can be seen after four or five treatment cycles.

CoolSculpting can provide dramatic results. Patients usually see a reduction of 20 to 25% of fat cells in the treatment area. However, unlike radiofrequency and microneedling, CoolSculpting does not provide a more defined or toned look.

After a CoolSculpting treatment, there is no recovery time required. Some patients may experience soreness, but it is no more painful than the muscle fatigue you might feel after an intense workout. You can resume your regular activities right away. Swelling in the treatment area is possible for one to two weeks after treatment.

What Is The Difference Between Morpheus8 and CoolSculpting?

As previously mentioned, the most notable distinction between CoolSculpting and Morpheus8 is that CoolSculpting solely targets fat reduction, whereas Morpheus8 targets not only fat reduction but also fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and loose or sagging skin. This is a crucial difference that most patients consider when choosing the most suitable treatment option for their needs.

What Are The Risks Of Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an innovative skin treatment that employs tiny needles and radio waves to rejuvenate the skin, thus providing it with a more youthful and radiant appearance. Though generally safe, the treatment may lead to mild swelling, redness, scabs, and bruising. These after-effects are temporary and can be easily managed with proper aftercare and attention.

During skin resurfacing procedures, individuals with darker skin tones are sometimes susceptible to hyperpigmentation. However, this risk is not present with Morpheus8 treatments. As with any medical procedure, it’s important to discuss any pre-existing health conditions with one of our providers before treatment. It’s important to note that pregnant or nursing individuals should not receive Morpheus8 treatments, and individuals with skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rash, or open sores should also avoid the treatment.

What Are The Risks Of CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a popular treatment for reducing fat in certain areas of the body. However, a serious side effect called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia may occur in rare cases. This condition causes the fat cells in the treated area to increase in size instead of decreasing, and it is more commonly observed in male patients. Despite ongoing research, the exact cause of this phenomenon is still unknown.

As with other treatment options, you should consult a physician and discuss any underlying health concerns before determining if this is the right treatment.

Which Option Will Be Best For Me?

Morpheus8 and CoolSculpting are two non-invasive procedures that can enhance your physical appearance and boost your self-esteem. Of the two, Morpheus8 offers a wider range of treatment options and, therefore, provides the most value.

How Long Do Morpheus8 Results Last?

Morpheus8 results can last between one to three years. However, this duration can vary depending on lifestyle and genetics. Individuals will react differently to the treatment as each skin type is unique. Proper self-care and follow-up treatments can help extend the effects of Morpheus8.

What Are The Side Effects Of Morpheus8?

When undergoing Morpheus8 treatment, possible side effects include temporary redness, pinpoint bleeding, light swelling, bruising, and dry, flaky skin. While more severe side effects like blisters, scarring, and hyperpigmentation are rare, they can occur in some cases.

How Long Do CoolSculpting Results Last?

CoolSculpting permanently destroys fat cells in targeted areas. However, the remaining fat cells in non-treated areas can still expand or shrink. After CoolSculpting, weight gain may cause fat to return to treated areas.

What Are The Side Effects Of CoolSculpting?

While CoolSculpting is considered a safe procedure, there are a few side effects you may experience, including temporary irritation, aching, or pain at the treatment site, bruising, and swelling. These symptoms typically self-resolve in a few weeks.  Another side effect, albeit rare, may include paradoxical adipose hyperplasia, a condition where the fat cells grow instead of shrink.  While this is more cosmetic than life-threatening, it requires liposuction or other surgery to correct.
