EmSculpt NEO vs CoolSculpting: Which One is for You?

Posted by October 25th, 2022 in Body

With the wide range of body sculpting options available these days, it’s understandable if you’re a bit confused as to which one is the best for you. To find the right fit, you must first know exactly the type of treatment you want. For instance, EmSculpt NEO is something to consider if you are looking for a non-invasive body sculpting treatment that builds and tones muscles. On the other hand, if you’re more concerned about fat reduction than muscle toning, then CoolSculpting might be a better fit for you.

What’s the difference between the EmSculpt NEO and CoolSculpting?

First off, most non-surgical fat removal treatments like CoolSculpting are designed for removing stubborn fats; those fats that won’t go away no matter how much you exercise or how much you watch what you eat. With that said, these treatments aren’t designed for individuals dealing with obesity. Non-invasive body sculpting treatments like EmSculpt NEO, on the other hand, are designed more for building muscle than removing stubborn fats.


A notable difference between the two procedures is the technology behind each treatment. With CoolSculpting, a cooling type of technology is utilized to freeze fat cells up to a point where they are no longer viable.

With the San Jose EmSculpt Neo Treatment at Rejuvé, or elsewhere, two technologies are utilized. First, is high intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) that causes rapid muscle contractions to stimulate muscle toning and buildup. HIFEM works because it stimulates supramaximal contractions, which are considered as more focused and intense than muscle contractions from a regular fitness routine. In a word, you could be building and toning muscles at an intensity comparable to what you would have achieved after doing about 20,000 sit-ups.

Treatment goals

Each type of treatment offers different results, which is why it’s important to know your treatment goals beforehand. This way, you will have a better idea of which type of treatment is aligned with your goals. If you’re looking for a non-invasive treatment that builds and tones muscles while also burning fat and tightening the skin, then the EmSculpt NEO in Saratoga (or nearby areas) at Rejuvé is the ideal treatment for you. For patients residing in or around Saratoga, EmSculpt NEO at Rejuvé will be administered by licensed and experienced EmSculpt Neo Doctor in the Bay Area, Dr. John Tang, M.D.

CoolSculpting isn’t designed to build and tone muscles.

Minimal pain or pain-free?

The true test for a lot of patients is the pain factor. CoolSculpting freezes stubborn fat cells up to a point where they are no longer viable, as mentioned above. Patients usually feel a stinging, pinching sensation during treatment. You may also notice redness on the treated area(s).

With EmSculpt NEO in Saratoga or elsewhere, patients usually feel contractions and a light heating/burning sensation. Most patients report that these sensations do not hurt one bit although how much discomfort the patient feels for either type of treatment depends on their pain index or pain tolerance.
