At the Light Touch Clinic, we are pleased to be able to offer our patients two of the best fat-busting treatments in the world: CoolSculpting and Vanquish. While many of our patients are aware that these treatments can help get rid of stubborn fat, not everyone knows the difference between them.

The Technologies

As hinted by its name, CoolSculpting is a fat freezing treatment that uses the power of cooling to destroy fat cells. Harvard scientists discovered the perfect temperature which is low enough to kill fat cells but not so low it damages the surrounding tissues. Over times, the dead fat cells are naturally excreted from the body.

In order to do this, the area of fat being treated is gently drawn into the treatment head (there are different size heads to treat different areas) and cooled.

Differently, Vanquish uses radiofrequency energy to heat fat cells until the point that they become unstable and die. For this treatment the panels are simply positioned over the area you want to treat.

Safety

Both of these treatments are FDA-approved for fat reduction and have superb safety records. One of the great things about CoolSculpting and Vanquish is that they have in-built safety technology which pre-empts any potential mishaps.

CoolSculpting has ‘Free Detect’ technology which monitors heat extraction. If the monitor detects that skin temperature may be reaching freezing point, it automatically stops the treatment. This prevents against nasty freeze burns, such as those seen in Daily Mail.

When having CoolSculpting a gel pad is applied to the area being treated too to further protect against freeze burn and skin damage.

Vanquish uses innovative thermal selection technology to make sure that the treatment on delivers heat to the fat, not any surrounding tissue. This not only prevents against burns but it also makes Vanquish a very comfortable treatment for the patient*.

Which one is best for me?

In order to find out which fat-reduction treatment is best for you, book a consultation with one of our aestheticians.

In general, we recommend CoolSculpting for those who have a pocket of soft, pinchable fat. This makes it a fab treatment for love handles, man boobs and inner thighs. As Vanquish has the largest treatment spot-size in the industry, it is perfect for patients looking to debulk. Indeed, we can treat the entire abdomen area from flank-to-flank simultaneously in one treatment. We also recommend Vanquish for our larger patients.
