Is Laser Lipo The Same As CoolSculpting

Book Online

Everyone has hang-ups about specific parts of their body that they would like to change. Even for those who do everything they should to maintain their health, it is rare that diet and exercise alone will remove all of your little insecurities.

CoolSculpting and Laser Lipo procedures can help to fix those insecurities and finally achieve the body you have been dreaming about. Both Laser Lipo and CoolSculpting are body contouring procedures that use cutting-edge technologies to destroy fat, reduce cellulite, and increase the toned look we all want.

Although both laser lipo and CoolSculpting are non-surgical body contouring procedures, there are subtle differences as they use slightly different technologies to achieve results.

Xanadu Med Spa offers both Laser Lipo and CoolSculpting procedures by our expertly trained staff. Both treatments are safe, highly effective, and popular methods of reducing fat through simple, quick, and pain-free sessions with almost no downtime.

If you are considering Laser Lipo vs CoolSculpting, the expert staff at Xanadu Med Spa can help you to evaluate your options. Both treatments are effective and achieve great results, but we will help you choose which is right for you and your goals. For free, friendly advice and more information about both of these treatments, schedule a complimentary consultation with Xanadu Med Spa Today.

What Are Laser Lipo And CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting and Laser Lipo are two of the most popular non-surgical body contouring procedures offered at Xanadu Med Spa. Body contouring uses either surgical or non-surgical methods to remove a patient’s unwanted fat and improve the overall toned and firm appearance of the body.

Laser Lipo and CoolSculpting are both non-surgical, non-invasive procedures that deliver the same, if not better, results than their surgical counterparts, such as traditional liposuction, augmentations, and tummy tucks.

The non-surgical, non-invasive procedures offered at Xanadu Med Spa allow our patients to achieve significant fat loss, firming, and skin smoothing results without the need for an invasive surgical procedure with a long recovery time.

Laser Liposuction

Laser Lipo uses intense laser energy to pierce through the membrane of fat cells. Once pierced, the fat cells release the water, glycerol, and fatty acids within them, and they begin to break down. The body then begins the process of removing these treated fat cells permanently.

The laser liposuction procedure offered at Xanadu Med Spa is partnered with radiofrequency skin tightening and body cavitation. This combination of technologies increases the overall effectiveness of the treatment and boosts the final results our patients receive.

Radiofrequency skin tightening warms skin to a consistent temperature for over 3 minutes. In turn, this increased temperature stimulates the release of proteins to create new collagen fibers. This collagen boost leaves skin looking fuller, tighter, and smoother.

Body cavitation, or ultrasound cavitation, works in a similar way to laser lipo but uses ultrasound energy to break down fat cells to increase the number of fat cells targeted and the effectiveness of the overall treatment.

Laser lipo results in a significant reduction in fat and visibly firmer and tighter skin in the treatment area. This treatment is a highly effective method to help our clients address problem body areas, improve body shape, and regain their confidence.

Potential Side Effects Of Laser Lipo

The side effects that patients may experience after laser lipo treatment are mild. Most patients experience no symptoms at all, whereas some individuals report redness or minor swelling in the target area. Side effects typically subside within a few hours of the procedure.

Areas You Can Use Laser Lipo

One benefit of the treatment is that most areas are safe for treatment with laser lipo. Typically, patients use laser lipo on the stomach, back, hips, arms, thighs, buttocks, and neck. Often male patients will have laser lipo procedures to reduce fat in the chest area.


Most individuals are eligible to undergo a laser liposuction treatment. The best results are often seen in individuals who are slightly overweight or people with areas of stubborn fat that they would like to remove. Pregnant women can not undergo laser lipo.


CoolSculpting is rapidly increasing in popularity as an effective, pain-free quick fix to reduce body fat. CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis technology, which is based on the concept that fat cells cannot survive cold temperatures. Commonly known as ‘fat freezing’, cryolipolysis reduces a patient’s fat cells below the temperature they can survive at, destroying the cells which are later removed by the body. The treatment does all of this to the unwanted fat cells while posing no risk to the skin, muscle, or surrounding organs.

Once CoolSculpting has destroyed the targeted fat cells, other fat cells in the area condense to give an overall thinner and more toned appearance. Studies have found that CoolSculpting treatments result in a 20 – 25% reduction in fat in the treatment area. The treatment is usually pain-free, and patients will only feel a cold or numb sensation in the treatment area. As such, there is no requirement for local anesthesia.

At Xanadu Med Spa, we are proudly the only practice in Northern Colorado currently offering CoolSculpting treatments. 

Potential Side Effects Of Coolsculpting

CoolSculpting is FDA-approved and the number one non-surgical fat-reduction treatment used by doctors. The natural fat targeting technology carries only minor potential side effects such as redness, tenderness, and swelling. If a patient experiences any side effects, they usually pass quickly, often within a few hours.

Areas You Can Use CoolSculpting

The body areas that CoolSculpting can be used to reduce fat on are extensive because it is a safe and natural fat reduction method. As the treatment also makes no incisions in the skin, patients do not have to consider potential scarring and the risk of scar tissue when deciding upon the areas to treat. At Xanadu Med Spa, we regularly use CoolSculpting to treat unwanted fat on the abdomen, love handles, inner thighs, backs of legs, armpit area, and neck and jawline.


Most people who are in good health are suitable for CoolSculpting treatments. Unfortunately, pregnant women are not suitable for CoolSculpting procedures.

It is important to note that although CoolSculpting is a clinically proven fat reduction procedure, it is not a solution for obesity and is most effective on individuals with a healthy BMI looking to reduce fat in target areas.

How Long Until I See Results From Laser Lipo And Coolsculpting?

Typically patients see the full extent of their CoolSculpting treatment approximately four to six months after their procedures. Whereas, a patient’s results may continue improving for six to twelve months after Laser Lipo treatment.

This delay is down to the body naturally processing and removing the dead fat cells destroyed during the treatment. Although this process takes some time, patients may also see an initial change in levels of fat in the treatment area almost immediately after the treatment. Some of our patients actually enjoy watching their fat loss results improve over time!

Are Both Procedures Safe?

Both the CoolSculpting and Laser Lipo treatments offered at Xanadu Med Spa and FDA-approved for the safe and effective reduction of fat cells. Additionally, all of our treatment staff are professionally trained and highly skilled in the procedures. Our staff take extra care to ensure that our patients are comfortable and relaxed during their treatments with us.

Will My Results Be Permanent?

Regardless of whether you choose Laser Lipo or CoolSculpting, you can achieve permanent results and fat reduction with either of these treatments. Once the fat cells have been destroyed during the procedure, they will not return and will be removed permanently from your body.

Patients should practice an active lifestyle and healthy diet after their procedures to ensure they maintain the maximum results possible.

Can I Have A CoolSculpting Treatment On My Lunch Break?

CoolSculpting is generally a short and relatively simple procedure. The exact amount of time your treatment will take will depend upon the size of the treatment area, but often, a patient’s procedure is complete within an hour. As the treatment is virtually painless, many patients read a book or catch up on TV during their session.

Most patients experience minor or no side effects after their treatment. As such, you are able to go about your busy daily life immediately after the treatment. Some patients experience minor swelling or tenderness in the treatment area, but this tends to subside within a few hours and should not hinder you from returning to work if you wish to do so.

How Is Laser Lipo Different From Traditional Liposuction?

As opposed to traditional surgical liposuction treatments, laser liposuction has a reduced chance of infection and a much shorter recovery time after the procedure.

Similarly, when comparing laser liposuction to traditional liposuction, laser lipo can be as effective for fat removal without the risks and recovery time. Laser lipo also comes with the added benefit of skin tightening that traditional procedures do not. The Xanadu Med Spa laser lipo treatment tightens skin at the same time, whereas traditional liposuction only removes excess fat and can leave skin in the treatment area looking deflated and saggy.
