EON, CoolSculpting, & Other Non-Surgical Fat Reduction Treatments…which one is right for me?
Non-surgical body contouring, body sculpting, and non-surgical fat reduction treatments have become more advanced, more accessible and are in demand now more than ever before. With over a dozen non-surgical body contouring procedures available today, it can be confusing to choose the best treatment achieve your goals of a slimmer figure.
Most non-surgical fat reduction procedures are based on one of these three principles:
- Cryolipolysis: uses controlled cooling with freezing temperatures to target and destroy fat cells.
- Laser Lipolysis: uses controlled heating and laser energy to target fat cells.
- Radiofrequency Lipolysis: uses controlled heating and ultrasound technology to target fat cells.
EON uses laser lipolysis to reduce unwanted fat. EON utilizes thermal laser energy and cooling technology to heat fat below the skin’s surface while maintaining a comfortable, pain-free experience. The EON device is completely automated with smart-sensor technology that maps your unique topography to provide a customized treatment while the robotic arm delivers consistent laser energy to eliminate stubborn fat.
How EON Compares to CoolSculpting
Treatment Area and Fat Reduction
EON is able to treat up to 6 times the surface area than other body contouring applicators. Due to its robotic, touchless applicator, EON can cover extra-large surface areas in just one treatment session. EON can treat the entire abdomen in just one hour, with some treatment areas taking as little as 20 minutes.
In comparison, CoolSculpting takes anywhere from 35 to 60 minutes per treatment and has a smaller treatment area applicator than EON.
EON can also treat areas with non-pinchable fat whereas CoolSculpting cannot. This is helpful for people who have dense fat or a protruding belly where the fat does not suction up into the CoolSculpting applicator or treatment head.
During EON’s clinical trials, patients lost on average of 21.6% of abdominal fat in just a single treatment. In comparison, CoolSculpting patients experienced an average fat loss of 20.4%. While the results seem comparable, the people who will benefit the most from EON compared to CoolSculpting or other fat reduction treatments are individuals who have larger areas of fat to reduce.
EON uses an autonomous robotic articulating arm to ensure even fat reduction across the abdomen. EON is completely touchless and does not come in contact with the skin at all. CoolSculpting relies on the expertise of the provider to manually position the CoolSculpting’s suctioning applicator and sticky gel adhesive to spot-treat fat. If your provider is not as experienced or as knowledge you could have uneven results or overlooked fat pockets, which could require additional CoolSculpting treatments.
EON results typically appear within 6 to 12 weeks with full results being seen at 12 weeks. CoolSculpting results can be seen withing 12 to 16 weeks.
EON and Other Non-Surgical Fat Reduction Treatments
TRUSCULPT, SCULPSURE, VANQUISH ME
Like EON, truSculpt iD, SculpSure and Vanquish Me use heat induced apoptosis as the mechanism of action for fat reduction. However, EON patients experienced 6.3mm of permanent fat reduction whereas its competitors experienced 4.17mm or less. What makes EON stand out is the technology’s robotic intelligence, safety, and reliability.
When trying to find the right fat reduction treatment for you and your goals, remember that not all treatments are made equal and not all treatments are right for every person’s fat reduction or body sculpting goals. Most fat reduction treatments take at least 6 weeks to show any improvement and often times require more than one session to achieve your optimal results, so a little planning is essential in your body contouring journey.
Despite all the leaps in technology, fat reduction treatments are not magic, and the biggest source of disappointment is that the non-surgical treatment did not do enough. Minimally invasive Liposuction still reigns as the gold standard procedure for total fat elimination as these non-surgical fat reduction treatments are intended for patients within 10 to 15 pounds of their goal weight. For patients who find Liposuction a better option, Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery offers BodyTite combined with Liposuction to improve skin elasticity and body contouring.
