- CoolSculpting vs. truSculpt® iD: Which One Is Better & Why?
The process of losing weight or maintaining a healthy body weight are ongoing challenges that are frustrating for many of us. Each day, we struggle to eat right, drink enough water, get enough exercise, and practice self-care and a healthy lifestyle. Still, inevitably the "magic number" on the scale we are trying to achieve continues to remain elusive. There are many risks to plastic surgery, and many people are not eligible candidates for the process. The process of losing weight or maintaining a healthy body weight are ongoing challenges that are frustrating for many of us. Each day, we struggle to eat right, drink enough water, get enough exercise, and practice self-care and a healthy lifestyle. Still, inevitably the "magic number" on the scale we are trying to achieve continues to remain elusive. There are many risks to plastic surgery, and many people are not eligible candidates for the process. Additionally, there are countless weight loss pills, shakes, diet plans, prepackaged foods, and specialty drinks designed to help you lose weight. But many wonder, are these options safe? In some cases, they may be, and in others probably not. It is also important to note that quick-fix diet plans and medications are not necessarily the "magic bullet" for long-term fat loss. Eventually, you will need to stop taking medication or resume a healthy balanced diet. Unless you continue to follow a strict diet or exercise plan, there is a good possibility you will gain your way back. The truth is the majority of quick-fix plans failed. So, what can you do to lose weight, tone your body, and keep it that way for the long term? Enter body contouring! What is CoolSculpting? CoolSculpting is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that helps to remove extra fat cells from beneath the skin. The secret behind CoolSculpting is the process called cryolipolysis. During CoolSculpting, a roll of fat is placed between two panels that cool the fat to a freezing temperature. A 2009 study found that this process reduced the size of the treated fat layer by as much as 25%. The fat cells that die from the freezing process are excreted through the liver within several weeks of the treatment. Consequently, it can take up to three months before the desired results of the procedure are visible. CoolSculpting received FDA clearance in 2010, making it the first procedure of its kind approved for body-sculpting use. To date, CoolSculpting remains a popular body contouring procedure, although much of its popularity stems from public familiarity with the name and due to their aggressive investment in advertising. Does CoolSculpting Really Work? Studies have shown CoolSculpting works effectively to reduce excess fat in treated areas by up to 24%. People typically use CoolSculpting to treat similar parts of the body to liposuction. These areas include the outer and inner thighs, lower back, belly, and sides (or love handles). Unlike liposuction, it can also reduce the appearance of cellulite on the arms, thighs, buttocks, and underneath the skin. How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost? The average cost of CoolSculpting treatments will depend on the areas you wish to treat and how many treatments you will need. Because many people choose to do CoolSculpting on multiple areas of the body to reach their ideal end goals, they can expect to pay anywhere from $750 to over $4000 for the full treatment. What are the Negative Effects of CoolSculpting? Due to the non-invasive nature of CoolSculpting, it is generally considered a safe procedure for many people. However, the process is not without potential and quite common side effects or risks. Most patients experience the mild side effects of CoolSculpting, including tingling, redness, and numbness at the treatment area. Many of these symptoms resolve within a few days. However, a more serious side effect known as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) has been found to occur in 1 out of every 138 treatments. With PAH, instead of the cells dying and leaving the body, they grow larger and remain in place. The cause of this is not fully understood. Additionally, paradoxical adipose hyperplasia does not go away on its own and generally requires surgical intervention such as liposuction to address. What is iD? The non-invasive truSculpt® iD fat reduction treatment from Cutera is an award-winning contouring treatment. It uses MonoPolar RF (radio frequency) technology to kill fat cells in treated areas, such as the abdomen and flanks (love handles). The truSculpt's® clinically proven technology uses heat to target stubborn fat cells, and damages them to the point of elimination. The dead fat cells are then excreted through the body naturally. The iD treatments require only 15 short minutes to achieve an average of 25% fat reduction. Each treatment is customized to meet your individual needs and body features. Does the iD Work? Yes! Research shows truSculpt® can reduce fat cells in the treatment area by up to 25%. truSculpt® is ideal for individuals with a BMI above 30 and patients who want to reduce the presence of fatty layers in their abdomen, arms, back, buttocks, love handles, thighs, and along the bra line. The RF technology used in truSculpt® treatments is regarded as the safest and most effective non-surgical body sculpting technology on the market. The iD also sets itself apart through its skin tightening advantages. Unlike any other body contouring treatment the iD tightens the skin around the treated area of fat, which avoids loose and excess skin caused by fat removal. How Much is the iD? The cost of TrueSculpt will range on the patient's goals and the number of treatments required to attain those goals. On average truSculpt® treatments range in price from approximately $400 to $1200 per session. Is truSculpt® iD Better Than CoolSculpting? Although CoolSculpting and truSculpt® iD achieve similar outcomes, there is a clear winner in terms of which treatment option is the winner. Treatment Timeline Both treatments address specific areas where many people struggle to lose fat and have a hard time toning. Both treatments will also take around 12 weeks for maximum results to be achieved. Treatment Length However, truSculpt® can achieve these treatment outcomes in 15 minutes, whereas CoolSculpting requires approximately 105 minutes per session. Treatment Technology Additionally, truSculpt® uses MonoPolar RF technology which uses heat to damage the fat cells. truSculpt® treatments occur at about 114 degrees, only a few degrees higher than our average body temperature. This allows the fat damaging process to begin faster. CoolSculpting, as implied by the name, uses Cold Cryo Focused Hypothermia (cold) to damage fat cells via freezing. It takes far longer to reach the required temperature. Treatment Comfort Another important consideration is comfort! truSculpt® treatments have been compared to the feeling of a hot stone massage. Although the skin temperature around the treatment area will rise, it is generally not to an uncomfortable level. CoolSculpting treatments, on the other hand, can feel less comfortable. Many patients note various sensations throughout the treatment process, including pulling, tugging, cramping, pinching, and feelings of intense cold. Treatment Results Both CoolSculpting and truSculpt® have excellent success rates. On average CoolSculpting treatments lead to a 20-25% reduction in fat. truSculpt® treatments average around 25% in fat loss per session. iD is the safest body contouring treatment on the market and requires no downtime of any kind. After your treatment, you may notice warmth and redness in the treatment area for approximately an hour. CoolSculpting treatments can have various side effects, including redness, swelling, bruising, tingling, tenderness, and skin sensitivity which can last for a few days. Treatment Areas Finally, truSculpt® can address fat cells that CoolSculpting cannot. truSculpt® treatments are approved for and have proven successful in reducing areas of non pinch-able fat and lax skin. truSculpt® is also the first and only body contouring treatment suitable for patients with a BMI over 30. How Does CoolSculpting and truSculpt® iD Compare to SculpSure? The SculpSure is another popular treatment for non-invasive body contouring. It uses another form of lipolysis called laser lipolysis, and is the most popular treatment in this category. But how does laser lipolysis compare to CoolSculpting's cryo lipolysis and the truSculpt® iD's radio frequency lipolysis.

- Vivace vs. Skin Pen Micro-Needling: Which is Right for Me?
As women (and many men) seek to improve the appearance of their skin, especially as they age, they search for cosmetic procedures that can help to restore a youthful appearance and glow. Unfortunately, or perhaps, fortunately, these searches often result in a wide range of procedures promoted as beneficial, safe, minimally invasive, and highly effective. But which methods are truly good for your skin? And which ones can actually help you achieve your desired appearance goals? Two popular treatment options today include micro-needling and Skin Pen. What is Micro-Needling? Micro-needling is a cosmetic procedure designed to improve the appearance of your skin by improving collagen production. Microneedling is also referred to as collagen induction therapy. Micro-needling procedures are most effective if you are looking to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, acne scars, and other signs of aging. Micro-needling works by encouraging your skin to produce more collagen naturally. The idea behind the procedure is that the pinpricks from the machine lead to a mild injury to the surface of the skin. The skin responds to this injury by making new tissue that is healthy and collagen-rich. Consequently, it has improved texture, tone, and appearance. Is Micro-Needling Actually Good for Your Skin? Micro-needling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. Unlike traditional plastic surgery procedures, there are no significant incisions into the skin; therefore, little to no downtime. Although a micro-needling treatment may produce mild skin irritation and redness, information from the American Academy of Dermatology states that when performed by a professional, Micro-Needling procedures are safe and effective ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Additionally, by increasing the amount of collagen skin can produce, it helps restore the strength inelasticity of your skin. What's the Difference Between Micro-Needling and SkinPen? Skin Pen is a type of micro-needling device. It is the first device approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in correcting multiple problematic skin conditions such as acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and large pores, and fine lines and wrinkles. Micro-needling, on the other hand, is beneficial for individuals looking for skin tightening and to tone their skin. While both devices use several tiny needles to penetrate the skin, Micro-needling devices also emit radiofrequency energy used to help tighten the sagging skin. Does the SkinPen really work? Skin Pen offers precision capability. It is proven safe for all skin types and the results achieved are natural and only get better with time. Skin Pen is highly effective for those looking to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of scars, and correct issues of hyperpigmentation or sunspots. As many as 90% of those who have had a Skin Pen procedure say they would recommend it to a friend or loved one. Another benefit to Skin Pen is that it only takes a few treatments to achieve desired results. For some, significant improvement is seen in as few as three treatments, and again, the results continue to improve in the days and weeks following each procedure. How Much is a Skin Pen Treatment? The cost of Skin Pen treatments varies depending on the area you want to treat, and the skin concerns you are looking to address. On the average, Skin Pen treatments range from $100 to $700 per session, a cost notably cheaper than RF micro-needling procedures. What is Vivace Treatment? Vivace RF micro-needling treatments or Vivace Radiofrequency (RF) is a relatively new procedure that combines the benefits of micro-needling and radiofrequency to achieve natural looking results. Vivace treatments also help reduce the appearance of undesirable skin ailments such as large pores, fine lines, and wrinkles on the skin. Similar to Skin Pen, Vivace treatments can help improve skin texture and tone with minimal downtime and virtually immediate results. Vivace treatments are the first FDA-Approved micro-needling procedures using radio frequency (RF) to enhance treatment outcomes. How Long Does Vivace Micro-needling Last? On average a vivace micro-needling treatment will take anywhere from 30 minutes to 60 minutes. How Much Does Vivace Micro-needling Cost? Vivace treatments use radiofrequency waves as part of the procedure; therefore, Vivace procedures are more costly than Skin Pen procedures. Again, the overall costs will vary based on a variety of factors; however, treatments often cost around $400 per session. Which Micro-Needling is the Best: Vivace vs. SkinPen? Both Skin Pen and vivace RF Micro-Needling procedures can help you achieve excellent results. Both procedures will also help to reduce the appearance of many age-related skin imperfections people strive to get rid of. Micro-needling procedures such as Skin Pen and Vivace RF Micro-Needling are proven effective and minimally invasive. Both procedures will help you achieve results that skin creams, facials, and other minimally invasive or non-invasive procedures simply cannot. If you are looking to change the appearance of your skin without painful, invasive cosmetic surgery procedures, micro-needling procedures are an excellent place to start. However, because both procedures are so similar, you might be wondering which one is best for you. In short, Skin Pen typically wins the contest, hands down. Nine out of every ten patients who have a skin Pen procedure are satisfied with their results and would consider recommending Skin Pen to a friend or loved one. Additionally, Skin Pen procedures are far more affordable than Vivace RF micro-needling procedures meaning it is possible to have the multiple treatments required to achieve optimal results without breaking the bank. When comparing the cost of Skin Pen to RF micro-needling treatments, two to three skin pad procedures will cost on the average between $700 and $1400; however, other RF treatments can run $10,000 or more for the necessary four to six sessions required to meet most cosmetic appearance goals. The best way to learn more about which procedure is best for you is to contact a local Skin Pen specialist for a consultation. At Clique Salon and Med Spa, our team of caring, compassionate treatment providers are here to answer your questions about how SkinPen can help you safely and successfully achieve your skin appearance goals. If you are unsure which type of procedure is best, contact Clique Med Spa to schedule a consultation with one of our treatment professionals.

Like all chemical peels, they penetrate and exfoliate the outer layers of skin. In doing so, these peels naturally stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are the two proteins responsible for the skin's tone and texture. They can reduce the visible signs of ageing, scarring and many more types of damaged skin and skin concerns. Most patients are good candidates for peels as they work wonders on all skin types without any major risk of side effects. You just have to be able to put up with the unsightly skin peeling process for a couple of days after the treatment. There are five main types of Vi Peels. Read about the benefits of each one below!

It is safe for all skin types including oily and dry skin. The Purify with Precision Plus peel unclogs pores and reduces acne-causing bacteria in the skin, but also helps with other skin concerns such as: Acne Scarring Adult Acne Excessive Oil Acne with Hyperpigmentation Vi Peel Advanced And finally, Vi Peel Advanced is the go-to peel for people 40+ who want the maximum aging benefits. It can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. As you get older, you produce less collagen, but the Advanced peel promotes collagen production resulting in a softer, smoother complexion. The Advanced Peel is ideal for those with the following skin concerns: Aging Skin (Ages 40+) Loss of Elasticity Fine Lines Wrinkles How Long Do Vi Peel Results Last? Vi Peels work really well and results may last up to 4 months provided that you follow the aftercare instructions given to you by the technician. For example, after the Vi Peel, you should avoid sun exposure and heavy sweating for the first several days after the peel. How Much Does a Vi Peel Cost? The cost of a Vi Peel depends on the type of peel your local med spa recommends for you. Generally, the cost of a Vi Peel is between $200 and $350.
