What is CoolTone™ and How Does It Work?
Achieving the body you want is no small feat. It can take months of consistent hard work with no guarantee that you’ll see the contours you want in your favorite areas. As cosmetic treatments become more and more refined, it’s important to know that you’ve got options when it comes to putting the finishing touches on your new body without surgery or downtime. One new option is called CoolTone™ and comes from the makers of CoolSculpting®. Here’s what to know about CoolTone and how it can help you hit your body goals with just a few treatments at Fargo Center for Dermatology.
CoolTone is a non-surgical treatment that can tone and strengthen muscles at the same time as burning stubborn fat. It works through a process called magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS). This process sends electromagnetic signals through the muscles in the area, causing them to involuntarily contract. Think of it as working your muscles through exercise, but CoolTone does all the work for you. This process feels like a mild muscle spasm and is not painful. After each treatment, your body will begin to build and strengthen the treated muscles by building mass and burning fat. CoolTone works best on areas like the abdomen, thighs, and butt.
Even though they seem similar (and come from the same manufacturer, even!) CoolTone and CoolSculpting have some key differences. The most important one is that CoolSculpting helps remove stubborn fat without building and toning muscle like CoolTone does. CoolSculpting uses extremely cold temperatures to freeze fat cells so your body can remove them through its natural pathways. On the other hand, CoolTone simply stimulates muscles and tones specific areas. Although you can benefit from both treatment options, it’s important to select the right one for you and your goals.
CoolTone works best as a package of treatments. Each treatment session lasts around thirty minutes, after which you can get right back to your regular schedule. Although you might feel a little sore afterward, most patients report that it’s similar to an intense workout. You’ll begin to see results emerge within a few weeks as your body builds muscle and burns fat. During your consultation, you’ll discuss the right customized treatment package for you.
