CoolSculpting vs. EvolveX vs. Morpheus8

With a number of new body contouring technologies becoming available right here on Vancouver Island, you may be getting overwhelmed and unsure which of the modalities is the right one for your body. While a personalized consultation is always the best way to get a customized treatment plan, here are some basic guidelines that may help narrow down your choices.

CoolSculpting, Morpheus8, and EvolveX are all non-surgical aesthetic treatments designed to improve body contour and appearance. However, they work in different ways and target different areas of the body.


CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells. CoolSculpting is typically used to address localized fat pockets. It can be used on the areas that are difficult to target with diet and exercise:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (Love Handles)
  • Inner Thighs
  • Outer Thighs (Saddlebags)
  • Double Chin
  • Upper Arms (Bingo Wings)
  • Bra Fat (Back Fat)
  • Banana Roll (Underneath the Buttocks)
  • Submental Area (Jawline)

Morpheus8 is a versatile, minimally invasive treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy. Morpheus8 allows us to precisely tighten and contour the skin. It can be used on the face or body to address concerns such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and cellulite.

Once something is drooping on our face or body, it’s quite difficult, if not impossible, to fix the area using diet, exercise, and massage. In fact, some of the fittest individuals among us can have plenty of underlying muscle yet their skin could still sag due to sun damage or gravity. Morpheus8 can be used to lift and tighten skin in these areas:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Jawline
  • Cheeks
  • Forehead
  • Eyelids
  • Nasolabial Folds (Smile Lines)
  • Marionette Lines
  • Scars
  • Stretch Marks
  • Body areas such as abdomen, arms, thighs, or buttocks
