V-Form, CoolSculpting and Emsculpt: Which Non-Surgical Body Contouring Should You Choose?

When your results from dieting and exercising don’t seem to be enough, you may be inclined to assume that your body cannot look any better unless you choose to have plastic surgery. On the contrary, CSNY Medi-Spa offers a few different body shaping procedures that do not require surgery. Each procedure has a well-earned reputation for improving the body’s contours, but V-Form, CoolSculpting Elite and Emsculpt are all a little different. Read this blog to learn more about each option.


V-Form is a handheld device created by Viora. It aims to simultaneously reduce fat cells and tighten the skin. Using radiofrequency energy. With time, these diminished cells give the body a trimmer appearance. Meanwhile, the vacuum component of V-Form suctions the skin to revive its elasticity and tighten it to fit more snuggly around your body’s new contours.

Most patients need multiple sessions of V-Form to attain their desired results, but fortunately each session is short — usually under half an hour. You may resume your normal activities immediately following treatment.

CoolSculpting Elite

CoolSculpting Elite effectively targets and freezes fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue. In the weeks to follow, the body naturally processes and eliminates these dead fat cells. Treated fat cells are gone for good.

.Freeze 2x the stubborn fat and save time with our new dual applicators. Coolsculpting Elite treatment requires no surgery and little to no downtime so you can resume your normal activities.


What makes Emsculpt unique is that it is the only FDA-approved treatment for strengthening muscles. With electromagnetic energy, Emsculpt provokes your muscles to contract thousands of times in rapid succession. Even though you are laying still, these involuntary muscle movements achieve more than an intense workout could achieve.

Downtime for Emsculpt is minimal and side effects are mostly related to muscle soreness (similar to what you may experience after an intense workout). Most patients undergo a few treatments, spread a few days apart, to reach their aesthetic goals. You may choose to return for subsequent sessions to maintain your results.

Which Is Right? That’s Up to You

All three of these procedures are effective. Usually, the right decision for you comes down to personal preferences and the type of results you are looking to achieve.
