What Is the Difference Between CoolSculpting and CoolTone Treatments?
- Posted on: Mar 30 2023
Many people can have a very nutritious diet, spend hours exercising, and still be left with excess or stubborn body fat or not see the toned and sculpted look they want. As the field of cosmetic surgery and aesthetics advances, more and more treatments become available to treat specific aesthetic issues like these.
Liposuction has been a safe and effective option for more moderate to significant fat removal. However, in cases of substantial fat removal, the skin can look loose and sag. Other less or non-invasive treatments can provide a more holistic approach to body sculpting and contouring, but they do not always address the underlying cause.
CoolSculpting® and CoolTone® are non-invasive treatment options that can help you achieve a more sculpted and tighter look, address the specific issue that might be preventing you from achieving the look you want.
When the goal is to remove stubborn body fat in areas where muscle growth and definition are not as important, CoolSculpting is a great alternative to liposuction. Using cryo-technology, the CoolSculpting treatments transmit a very cold temperature below the skin, freezing and destroying unwanted fat cells. In most cases, the elasticity of your skin will tighten the area.
CoolTone®, on the other hand, does not directly affect or remove body fat. Instead, CoolTone® uses extremely high-frequency electromagnetic energy to cause specific muscles to rapidly contract and relax at a rate and duration we cannot do on our own.
Just like what happens to muscles during exercise, this rapid contraction causes an increase in blood flow to the treated area and helps to restructure the muscle fibers. Although fat reduction is not the primary goal of CoolTone® treatments, the contractions of the muscles may help burn some of the fat away, just like cardio-based exercises and activities.
CoolSculpting and CoolTone® cannot be used to treat the same area simultaneously. They can treat separate areas in the same visit and without incisions or other invasive treatments, are great options to add to your aesthetic treatment plan.
