When it comes to non-invasive body contouring options, Evolve and CoolSculpting are two of the most buzzed about procedures on the market. Both are non-invasive with little recovery or aftercare and both can have a substantial impact on the appearance of your body.
Evolve and CoolSculpting both treat issues of unwanted fat deposits and cellulite. There is a lot of overlap in how the procedures work and the results are sometimes similar. However, they are both distinctly different procedures that affect the body in different ways.
Below, we will give you a brief overview of each procedure and the differences between them. This should help you figure out which is right for you – Evolve or CoolSculpting.
Evolve: The Basics
Evolve is an exciting new technology that uses radio frequency energy to tighten the skin, reduce fat cells, and with a different energy (EMS) to build and tone muscle.
During Evolve treatments, a practitioner places the Evolve device on the treatment area. Treatment typically takes between 20 and 60 minutes. While you may feel a light tingling sensation near the treatment site, Evolve is usually not painful. You can resume your daily activities right away after completing Evolve. Most patients need between three to eight treatments to see results.
The results from Evolve can be quite dramatic. You will notice a significant reduction in fat and sagging skin as well as increased muscle definition. You will start to see initial results right after treatment, but it will take eight to twelve weeks to see the full results.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive FDA-approved fat reduction treatment. It is often used as an alternative to liposuction as it is a non-surgical means to remove stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet or exercise. Like Evolve, CoolSculpting can be done anywhere on the body.
CoolSculpting exposes fat cells beneath the skin’s surface to extremely low temperatures. This causes them to die and then be expelled from the body. During CoolSculpting, your practitioner straps a device onto your skin and lets it run for the allotted time frame. Sessions are not long and usually take between 30 minutes to an hour. You will need between four or five treatment cycles to see results.
Results with CoolSculpting can be dramatic. Patients see between a 20 to 25% reduction of fat cells in the treatment area.
Like Evolve, there is no recovery time after CoolSculpting. Some patients feel sore afterwards, but this is no more painful than the muscle fatigue you might feel after a long workout. You can resume your regular activities right away. There may be some swelling in the treatment area for one to two weeks after treatment.
What Is The Difference?
The biggest difference between CoolSculpting and Evolve is that the former focuses only on fat reduction while the latter focuses on fat reduction, muscle toning, and skin tightening.
There is some overlap. Your body often looks slimmer and tighter after both treatments. However, these procedures use different technologies that affect your body in very different ways.
The best means to determine which procedure is right for you is to book a consultation with an experienced professional. However, as a general rule, CoolSculpting is best if you are looking to get rid of unwanted fat and Evolve is best if you want to reduce fat while also tightening and toning the treatment area.
CoolSculpting And Evolve Combined?
CoolSculpting and Evolve can sometimes be done in conjunction. Both procedures may be helpful depending on your goals.
Often, areas with unwanted fat also have issues like sagging skin and cellulite. You can use CoolSculpting to remove fat deposits and then follow-up with Evolve to tone and tighten skin after CoolSculpting. You also may notice loose skin after CoolSculpting due to fat loss. This issue can often be subsequently addressed with Evolve.
However, there have been myriad advances in cosmetic medicine in recent years. Both CoolSculpting and Evolve are highly effective treatments, but there are many other options that can yield similar results. Depending on your body type and goals, you may benefit from a different combination of treatments.
This is why a professional consultation is so important – it ensures you find the best course of treatment for you.
Evolve vs. CoolSculpting: The Bottom Line
Both Evolve and CoolSculpting are non-invasive, low-risk procedures that can substantially improve your physical appearance. This can help improve your self-esteem and self-image.
While there is a lot of overlap between the procedures, they do yield slightly different results. It is important to do your research carefully to ensure you get the treatment that will work best for you.
