CoolSculpting vs Emsculpt NEO: What is the difference?

Two of the most requested treatments for body sculpting in NYC are CoolSculpting and Emsculpt NEO. Below, we discuss some of the most frequently asked questions regarding these two great treatments, both available at JL Body Sculpting Suite on the Upper East Side of New York City. 


CoolSculpting for Body Sculpting in NYC

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that permanently gets rid of fat cells in targeted areas of the body. The treatment works by freezing the fat cells, causing them to die off and be naturally eliminated from the body. CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved treatment that has been proven to be safe and effective.


At JL Body Sculpting Suite, we are proud to offer our patients the elevated experience of CoolSculpting Elite – QuadSculpting!

One of the main differences between CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite is the number of applicators that can be used at once. CoolSculpting Elite has two applicators, which allows the treatment of two areas at once.

However, we take it a step further! JL Body Sculpting Suite offers QuadSculpting, which uses two CoolSculpting Elite machines to treat four areas in the same session! This makes the treatment more efficient by allowing patients to treat multiple areas at the same time.

CoolSculpting is a great option for body contouring in NYC because it can be used to target various and specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, arms, bra fat, thighs, love handles, submental (double chin) and more.    

The treatment is non-invasive, which means there is no downtime and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.


Emsculpt NEO for Body Contouring in NYC

Emsculpt NEO is a newer treatment that uses time-tested technology to build muscle, burn fat and tighten skin! 

A leader in aesthetic innovation, Dr. Jennifer Levine has performed over 1,100 Emscupt NEO treatments!


How does Emsculpt NEO build muscle?

Originally used by NASA to prevent muscle atrophy in astronauts, high-intensity focused electromagnetic stimulation (HIFES) tech in Emsculpt NEO is responsible for building muscle mass up to 25%. The treatment works by causing involuntary muscle contractions, involving muscles that cannot be targeted with exercise alone.


How does Emsculpt NEO burn fat and tighten skin?

Emsculpt NEO uses targeted radiofrequency (RF) to permanently reduce fat up to 30% while tightening skin in the treatment area.

Combining fat reduction with muscle toning and skin tightening allows Emsculpt NEO to deliver the trifecta of body sculpting results. The treatment is non-invasive, which means there is no downtime and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.


Which areas does Emsculpt NEO treat?

Emsculpt NEO is FDA-approved to reduce fat and build muscle in the abdominal area, glutes, inner and outer thighs and arms.

And with Emsculpt NEO Edge, we can now also reduce fat in love handles and contour the obliques!

While CoolSculpting effectively reduces ‘grab-able’ fat that makes up the muffin top, Emsculpt NEO Edge simultaneously reduces fat and builds the obliques. Building and strengthening these key muscles helps contour the area, while also helping prevent injuries.


Which Treatment is Right for You?

While Emsculpt NEO and CoolSculpting have clear differences, one of the questions we get asked frequently is which treatment is best for fat reduction?

A good way to answer that is with CoolSculpting’s motto: “If you can squeeze it, we can freeze it!”

At JL Body Sculpting in NYC, we consider these two treatments as synergistic partners, not competitors. In some cases, Dr. Levine recommends combining CoolSculpting with Emsculpt NEO for optimal results!

The best way to answer this question is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Levine. During a consultation, you will collaborate on a treatment plan that will best address your individual goals. Call 347-960-4909 to schedule your appointment. 


Why We Offer Both: Emsculpt NEO and Coolsculpting

At JL Body Sculpting Suite we offer the most innovative and effective treatments for body contouring in NYC. CoolSculpting and Emsculpt NEO are two of the twelve non-invasive body sculpting treatments we offer. While it may seem that some treatments have the same effect, we consider the most important variable – you!

As a double-board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jennifer Levine prioritizes her patients’ individuality. When creating a body contouring treatment plan, Dr. Levine considers each patient’s body type, aesthetic and function goals, as well as their lifestyle. Rather than limit a patient’s results by only offering them one fat reduction treatment, we are able to offer them the treatment that will get them to their goals in the most effective, efficient way.
