hot vs cold

If you’re someone who is frustrated by your inability to lose stubborn body fat no matter how much you diet and exercise, you’re not alone. Countless people all over the world deal with such issues and multiple medical procedures from liposuction to i-Lipo have been created that offer viable solutions.

Some options for dealing with unwanted fat in the body include liposuction and laser-assisted liposuction but these procedures are invasive, cause bruising, bleeding and swelling and require extensive recovery. For those who don’t want to risk the problems of traditional liposuction, there are several non-invasive treatments that are safe, effective, don’t have downtime and take a minimum amount of time. Two of the most popular of these treatments are i-Lipo and cool sculpting. While the treatments are similar in that they’re non-invasive, they do have some differences you need to consider before making your choice.

Cool Sculpting

Cool sculpting was developed to utilizes a cooling process specifically targeted to kill fat cells beneath the top layer of skin. The fat cells are frozen and destroyed until they’re eliminated from the body through the liver. The frozen fat cells go away in a few months and there’s no scarring with cool sculpting but can be very painful.


On the warm side of body sculpting is where i-Lipo lives. If having fat cells frozen out of your body via cool sculpting doesn’t appeal, then i-Lipo is a better choice. Through the use of low-level laser technology, i-lipo shrinks fat cells until they are naturally eliminated from the body through your lymphatic system. These treatments run as short as 30 minutes, are passive, non-invasive, and involve no recovery time. Treatments are so short, they still fit easily into your busy life and results are immediate.

While both cool sculpting and iLipo laser body sculpting are non-invasive, cool sculpting treatments can take longer than its warmer counterpart can. Both procedures focus on safely and naturally removing fat cells from the body, but both done in a different way, one through lymphatic drainage which is safe and one through the liver which can be harder on the body. Both are effective on trouble areas for both men and women. Consult with a qualified professional before making a final decision.
