Is there a difference between Cool Sculpting & Liposonix?
Great question! Cool Sculpting ( http://www.coolsculpting.com/how-it-works#sthash.z6MdHaZa. ) & Liposonix ( http://www.liposonix.com/consumer/liposonix-difference/liposonix-science )are not the same. Cool Sculpting entails suction up skin & fat into a cooling chamber that freezes the fat. Over the course of many weeks the fat that has been frozen shrinks up. Liposonix utilizes externally applied High-intensity ultrasound energy. Again, over the course of many weeks the fat that has been treated shrinks up. Hope this of assisatance. Best,
