CoolTone™ is a non-invasive procedure that cuts fat, while toning, strengthening, and defining the muscles underneath. The treatment is done in minutes, with great results that last for months.
Are you one of the million Americans struggling to lose your belly and show off your abs? Are you tired of going to the gym for hours every day, with nothing to show for it? Long hours at the gym, doing cardio and weight training with mediocre results doesn’t always have to be how it’s done.
What is CoolTone™?
CoolTone™ is a non-invasive procedure, done to strengthen and tone the muscle groups of the arms, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. It is the latest release by the company, ZELTIQ Aesthetics. They also released CoolSculpting, which is another procedure used to reduce fat, using cold temperatures to freeze and kill fatty cells. However, CoolTone™ uses MMS (magnetic muscle stimulation) to send electromagnetic energy into your muscles, in order to contract and tone them and is non-painful.
Why Should I Get CoolTone™?
It might get discouraging to go to the gym and not see great results right away. Maybe you don’t have enough time to work out for hours a day. With CoolTone™, your arms, abs, thighs, and buttocks will be toned, defined, and strengthened for amazing results without the hassle of spending your life at the gym.
What Parts of the Body Does It Improve?
CoolTone™ is a procedure meant to tone jiggly areas of the body that you might want to be slimmed and strengthened. These areas include:
- Biceps and triceps
Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Andrew Jacono, is ready to help you enhance and improve your appearance with CoolTone™.
How does CoolTone™ Work?
CoolTone™ uses liquid-cooled applicators, placed on the targeted area and uses MMS technology (magnetic muscle stimulation) to send electromagnetic energy into your muscle groups, causing the muscles to involuntarily contract. The energy goes through the skin and fat layers, straight to the muscles, while killing fat. This gives the same effect as working out, without working out, and delivers better results. The contractions not only tone and slim the area but strengthen and define it.
Differences Between Emsculpt™ and CoolTone™
Both Emsculpt™ and CoolTone™ are body sculptors and muscle toners. Other commonalities between the two muscle toning procedures include:
- Very quick procedures
- Works for muscles in the arms, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks
- No pain and non-invasive
- Cleared by the FDA
As much as they have in common, they do have noticeable differences in their magnetic intensities. With CoolTone™ taking the edge there. This higher level of intensity affects the muscles deeper and allows for the results to last longer.
Emsculpt™ was developed by the company, BTL Aesthetics, a Czech-based company, which was founded in 1993. Emsculpt™ is a new technology, so their track record is not as reputable as CoolTone’s. It gives 0.9 Teslas of magnetic intensity.
CoolTone™ is developed by the pharmaceutical company, Allergan, which is a leading company in the aesthetic industry. They are the developers of Botox, Juvederm, and CoolSculpting. CoolTone™ provides 1.35 Teslas of magnetic intensity, which is much more than Emsculpt™, and the pulses also last longer and reach more areas of muscle. With the CoolTone™ Tesla magnet, it can avoid nerves while getting to the muscles, thus no pain is involved.
Risks of a CoolTone™ Procedure
CoolTone™ is approved by the FDA and is very safe. You should expect soreness in the targeted muscles as if you have just gone through an intense exercise session. Though, there is a chance for patients to experience effects such as redness, swelling, tingly sensations, or cramping.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Your results will go away if you do not maintain them. Physical fitness should already be a part of your routine before going through with this procedure, in order to better define your muscles. Results will be visible and noticeable within 1 day after the procedure to 2 months, as it varies between patients.
Who Should Get CoolTone™?
People who would not be good candidates are people with excess fat and medical implants, such as pacemakers. This also includes pregnant women, women going through menstruation, people with hemorrhagic conditions and epilepsy.
How long does the procedure take?
A CoolTone™ treatment should take around 30 minutes.
There is no recovery time and you should be perfectly fine to leave and resume normal activities and routines, right after the procedure.
Will CoolTone™ get rid of my belly-pooch?
Of course. CoolTone™ kills fat while strengthening muscles. A commonly requested area to work on is the abdomen, which should slim your stomach and define your abs.
How many treatments do I need?
For the best results, most people need the procedure to be completed around 4 times. It is recommended to also help maintain your results by coming in every few months for another treatment.
Is this procedure painful?
There may be slight discomfort, but there should not be pain aside from soreness.
Will I experience side effects?
Though minimal, there is a chance to experience redness, swelling, and cramping.
Will CoolTone™ replace my exercise and diet?
No, you should not replace your exercise or diet with CoolTone™ treatment. It is not a replacement; it is an enhancement to your existing workout routine.
