Is Emsculpt The Same As Cool Sculpting?

Simply put, Emsculpt and CoolSculpting are two distinctive terms for two procedures for eliminating fats. In this article, we will explain the differences between these terms.


Emsculpt is approved by the FDA as an electromagnetic and non-invasive procedure that can eliminate fat cells and also tighten muscles in butt and abs. It is a simple procedure that requires you to go to a dermatologist’s office. You will be hooked up to a machine that will emit electromagnetic pulses while you are seated and relaxed. This procedure burns unwanted fat.

During this procedure, two things happen, muscle is built and fat is burnt. Electromagnetic pulses always force our muscles to contract twenty thousand times in thirty minutes. Therefore, these pulses are emitted and our muscle fibers get strengthened. The procedure makes muscles to release chemicals that will make fat cells to break down in the area.


Cryolipolysis, also known as CoolSculpting, is a medical procedure that gets rid of excess fat cells beneath your skin. During this procedure, a plastic surgeon or any licensed medical practitioner makes use of a special tool to freeze and lower the fat in the targeted area of your body.

CoolSculpting is certified by the US Food and Drug Administration as it is believed to be a safe medical treatment. CoolSculpting is more beneficial than traditional liposuction because it is non-invasive and non-surgical. Also, there is no need for recovery time. 

Besides, there is a certainty that this special procedure will reduce fat cells around the treated area by twenty to twenty-five percent. Due to its side effects, a licensed medical professional should recommend the procedure before it can be used for reducing your body fat.

Differences between Emsculpt and CoolSculpting

  1. The results

Emsculpt reduces fat while still helping you build muscle. Fats are cut down by nineteen percent while muscle mass is increased by sixteen percent under this procedure. It raises the buttocks and makes them rounder, firmer, and fuller. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, cannot match Emsculpt when it comes to the results. It does not build muscle as it can only reduce the fat. 

  1. Downtime and side effects

Patients of CoolSculpting are likely to experience a numbing sensation and redness. These particular effects can last for hours after treatment. For Emsculpt, there is a possibility of feeling sore in the targeted area after the treatment. There is no downtime for both treatments because patients always get back to their normal routine immediately after the treatment. 

  1. Time commitment

Each session of treatment for CoolSculpting lasts within 35-60 minutes. Most treatments do not go beyond two to six sessions within the space of one month. Emsculpt takes 30 minutes and often requires around four seasons for you to get the desired results. The treatment can be done within two to three days of each other. Emsculpt is faster than CoolSculpting.

In conclusion, both treatments are safe. Also, they have no major side effects and downtime that can make it difficult for you to get back to enjoying your life after undergoing the procedures.
