Outside traditional diet and exercise there are few ways to eliminate stubborn fat for good. That was until more effective fat removal methods came along.

Cryolipolysis, a nonsurgical treatment that destroys fat cells by freezing, and Vanquish Selective RF, which uses radiofrequency waves to heat and melt fat, have both been deemed useful in eliminating inches from your body.

So which works better? The answer is both. One complements the other making the duo the perfect combination treatment for fat reduction.

Fat Freezing

Cryolipolysis is a targeted fat freeze procedure that has been touted as a non-invasive alternative to liposuction. Unlike aggressive liposuction which can cause severe post-procedure pain, numbness, bruising, and swelling, Cryolipolysis is non-invasive and has far fewer risks.

With Coolsculpting in Singapore, there are no needles, no anesthesia or surgical incisions, no medicines injected, and no damage to the overlying skin. The fat freezing procedure is quick and affordable and can benefit both men and women. Those who undergo Coolsculpting can return to work soon after treatment as no recovery time is needed.


Cryolipolysis is a unique technology that cools fat cells over a localized area, causing the fat cells to freeze and eventually breakdown. This leads to a permanent loss in fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues or overlying skin.

The Coolsculpting machine, created by ZELTIQ Aesthetics Inc. is FDA-approved for use on the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. It features a built-in safety mechanism which prevents that skin from overcooling. Research performed over time has found the fat reduction procedure to be useful in treating the arms, chest, inner thighs, hip rolls, brassiere rolls, chin, double chin, and pseudo-gynecomastia.

Fat Heating

On the opposite end of the spectrum, you have fat heating. The Vanquish Selective RF succeeded in creating an effective and virtually painless fat removal device. The non-invasive BTL Vanquish treatment requires the patient to lie underneath the applicator which is positioned under the targeted area approximately 1 to 2 cm from the skin.


The device then emits a radiofrequency-based energy which helps to safely melt the fat under the skin. Fat has various absorption properties due to diminished water content and Vanquish takes advantage of that to selectively heat the fat.

There are many reasons people are saying “yes” to Vanquish fat reduction. First, the therapy is not limited to a specific BMI. Nearly anyone is a candidate. The procedure is also a full flank body treatment, resulting in no unevenness.

Vanquish body contouring is also non-invasive and results in no downtime allowing you to return to your normal life directly after treatment. It also works fast to give rapid results. As the treatment disrupts fat cells through the heating of adipose tissue, the process leads to fat cell shrinkage and removal from the body.

More and more patients are turning to cold or heat to reach the stubborn fat deposits under the skin. When used in combination with one another, Coolsculpting and Vanquish have been found to offer incredible and safe fat removal results that last.
