What’s the difference between Smartlipo TriPlex™ and CoolSculpting®?

If you’re looking for ways to reduce stubborn areas of fat that persist even with diet and exercise, you’ve likely come across Smartlipo Triplex and/or CoolSculpting. In Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada, Dr. Arthur Cambeiro offers these two effective–but different–treatments for stubborn fat. Here is how to decide what’s best for you.

Smartlipo Triplex Procedure & Recovery

Smartlipo TriPlex is for someone seeking the benefits of traditional liposuction combined with smoother, firmer skin. This enhanced liposuction option can be used on areas including:

The Smartlipo TriPlex technology uses a combination of three wavelengths of laser energy to liquefy fat cells and encourage collagen production. Past iterations of laser liposuction technology didn’t have this advanced laser technology.

The Smartlipo TriPlex procedure is typically an outpatient procedure using local anesthetic. Because of this, recovery is shorter and easier than for traditional liposuction. Although you may experience some minor bruising, you’ll be able to resume your normal schedule within one to two days.

CoolSculpting Procedure & Recovery

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure requiring no needles, incisions, anesthesia, or downtime. CoolSculpting is best if you are healthy, close to your ideal weight, and have unwanted fat on any of the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Flanks (aka “love handles”)

During this simple procedure, a cooling applicator is applied to the desired area of fat reduction. This technology extracts energy (cooling) from the underlying fat tissue. When fat cells are exposed to precise cooling, they stimulate a process of natural removal, which safely and gradually reduces the fat layer’s thickness.

Patients can relax during their treatment. In general, patients can resume their regular routine, including work or exercising, on the same day as the procedure. For a visual overview of nonsurgical body contouring treatment options, review this post.
