Is there a difference between Cool Sculpting & Liposonix?

Q:

What is the difference between Cool Sculpting & Liposonix? Why choose one over the other?

A:

Chass,

 

 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,
