“A fit, healthy body—that is the best fashion statement”
― Jess C Scott
Body Contouring refers to the reduction of fat tissue and the tightening of the skin on the face or body. Over time, fat cells can become resistant to diet and exercise. While liposuction is an effective solution to this condition, many patients prefer non-surgical Med Spa procedures to get rid of stubborn fat. CoolSculpting and VelaShape are two key procedures to create this non-invasive body contouring technique.
These procedures are ideally suited for working people, busy moms, and others. To everyone who wants to avoid a prolonged recovery or an invasive procedure which often leaves permanent scaring.
These two procedures promise great results, but they defer greatly in the mechanism of action.
How Does VelaShape work?
VelaShape is a procedure that combines infrared light, bi-polar radiofrequency energy, and vacuum. This causes deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue, and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This heating and vacuum stimulate the growth of new and better collagen and elastin. Which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.

This is not a weight loss procedures. Perfect patients are those of BMI of 30 or less and those with stage 1 or 2 cellulite.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting has brought about a revolution in the area of non-surgical body contouring with its innovative cooling process that is aimed at reducing stubborn fat cells.
As opposed to laser or other heat-based fat reduction techniques, CoolSculpting exposes the targeted area to a controlled cold temperature. Fat cells don’t like the cold and at certain temperatures, they will freeze. Once that happens, your body will naturally eliminate the dead cells in 1-2 months through the lymphatic system, resulting in up to 20%-25% reduction of fat in a treated area.
Treated areas may include the abdomen, thighs, legs, underarms, bra fat, or the submental area. Results may vary depending on the volume of fat and the treated area.

Which is better, VelaShape or CoolSculpting?
It depends on the goal of your treatment. While CoolScultpting provides permanent destruction of the affected fat cells compared to fat heating and contouring in VelaShape, CooSculpting doesn’t promise as much skin tightening as VelaShape.
Both VelaShape and Coolsculpting promises improvement in fatty appearance, yet VelaShape typically requires 3-4 sessions while CoolSculpting results in a 20-25% reduction in fat cells after each treatment.
After each treatment, clients can go back to work with no downtime and resume activities of daily living.
