One of the most effective ways to lose fat is by building muscle. At Delray Laser and Medical Spa in Delray Beach, Florida, Cynthia Mayers and the aesthetic specialists offer CoolTone® to sculpt your muscles and reduce unwanted fat simultaneously. CoolTone is a safe, noninvasive treatment that can help tighten and tone your physique. To learn more, call Delray Laser and Medical Spa or schedule an appointment online today.
CoolTone is a noninvasive fat-reduction and muscle-strengthening treatment that uses AMP™ (Active Magnetic Pulse™) technology to tone and firm your muscles. Not only does CoolTone force supramaximal muscle contractions, but it also stimulates collagen production to tighten your skin for a firmer, more sculpted appearance.
CoolTone uses a process called magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) to cause intense muscle contractions in the treatment area. These involuntary contractions strengthen and build your existing muscle fibers to define the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, or arms. As your muscles tighten and strengthen, you begin to lose unwanted fat.
While Allergan® manufactures CoolTone and CoolSculpting as body-contouring devices, the treatments target different areas of concern. CoolSculpting uses a process called cryptolysis to permanently damage fat cells by freezing them. This intense cooling causes the fat cells to die. Your body then removes them naturally through its lymphatic process.
Though CoolTone can reduce fat, its primary focus is muscle strengthening. By strengthening your muscles, CoolTone can promote a tighter, more defined abdomen, sculpted arms, and toned thighs.
When you arrive for your CoolTone treatment, your aesthetic specialist may apply a topical numbing anesthetic for your comfort. Next, they place the CoolTone applicator over your treatment area, which stimulates thousands of powerful muscle contractions. The entire treatment takes around 30 minutes, though it may take longer if you’re treating multiple areas.
CoolTone treatments feel like an intense workout. While the treatment shouldn’t be painful, it may feel similar to muscle spasms. Your muscles typically feel sore and tight after a CoolTone treatment, much like you might feel after working out. However, these side effects should subside within a few days after your treatment.
Most individuals see initial results from CoolTone about two to four weeks after treatment. You may need up to four treatments for lasting results. Many individuals continue to see improvements in their muscle and skin tone for up to six months after treatment.
