Applicators   25 minute treatment using 4 cool, flat applicators simultaneously (example: treats both love handles in 25 minutes)   1 hour treatment using 1 suctioned applicator (example: takes 2 hours to treat both love handles)
         
Recovery   No recovery time. Can work out immediately after / minimal tenderness in area treated   Up to a few weeks of numbness and bruising/tingling of the treated areas have been reported and potential complications
         
Comfort   Hands free/ flat non-suction applicator with cooling plates that is easily tolerated   Suction based applicator and post procedure massage can be quite uncomfortable and cause nerve damage in some patients
         
Candidates   No suction, no pulling the tissue, can treat all body types including younger / tighter patients with less fat (doesn't need to be vacuumed)   Patient's skin and fat must vacuum into applicator or you cannot perform the treatment
