CoolTone®: THE NEXT DIMENSION IN BODY CONTOURING
Why Should I come to Stephens Plastic Surgery for Non-Surgical Body Treatment?
Our state-of-the-art facility has every applicator for customized fat reduction as well as Cooltone®, the newest technology designed to combine with CoolSculpting to strengthen, tighten, and tone all the muscles that are under the fat. It’s important for our patients to understand the difference between Coolsculpting and Cooltone. CoolSculpting® is a fat reduction procedure while Cooltone® is a skin tightening procedure. At Stephens Plastic Surgery, we offer both treatments to obtain the best results. We are experts in non-surgical body contouring, offering the most advanced technologies available. Additionally, we are one of the first Cooltone® medical clinics in the country.
CoolTone vs Emsculpt
CoolTone is a noninvasive treatment that strengthens and builds muscles using Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS). This energy induces involuntary muscle contractions and produces a more toned and defined appearance to the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms. Additionally, CoolTone is an excellent stand-alone treatment for lean, athletic individuals and also works well in combination with CoolSculpting fat removal.
Emsculpt is a nonsurgical body contouring treatment that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to increase muscle mass and burn fat.
Like CoolTone, the technology stimulates extremely powerful muscle contractions that lead to deep remodeling of muscle fibers.
CoolTone vs. Emsculpt – How Are They Similar?
- CoolTone and Emsculpt are FDA-approved muscle toning treatments that areperformed in an office-setting and avoid incisions, anesthesia, pain, and downtime.
- They can both be completed in approximately 30 minutes and are able to
strengthen, firm, and tone muscles in the abdomen, arms, buttocks, and thighs.
- The two modalities are well-suited to both men and women and offer an excellent nonsurgical alternative to a butt lift.
CoolTone Offers More Magnetic Intensity
When it comes to CoolTone vs. Emsculpt, the treatments have a lot in common. However, there is one key difference that patients should be aware of.
CoolTone stimulates muscle growth with 50 percent more magnetic intensity, measured in tesla (T), compared to Emsculpt.
What areas of the Body can I treat with Cooltone®?
The Cooltone® is for Buttocks, abdomen, thighs, arms, and back. We can use Cooltone® on most areas of the body. The applicator’s design allows for very detailed muscle locations on the body.
How Does Cooltone® Work?
Cooltone® uses high-powered coil electromagnetic stimulation applicators to induce eddy currents in the muscle tissue. Cooltone® technology triggers muscle contractions that cannot be achieved by normal exercise to increase muscle mass and strength.
How Do I know if Cooltone® is for me?
If you currently exercise and eat healthy, you are probably a good candidate for Cooltone®.
At Stephens Plastic Surgery, we will provide a personalized consultation assessing everything from fat reduction, skin tightening, diet, and muscle conditioning with CoolTone.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime to getting a Cooltone® Treatment. You will feel like you had a very intense workout.
Why is Cooltone® Effective?
The electrical current induced by the Cooltone® device gently flows directly into muscle and not into fat. The current flows to nearby motor nerve structures that stimulate contractions. The current gets maxed out, causing a huge range of muscle fiber contractions. This intense external electrical stimulus is not achieved with normal exercise. The Cooltone® is able to “excite” the fast-twitch muscle fibers, causing maximum benefit.
What’s the difference between CoolSculpting and Cooltone®?
CoolSculpting is for Fat Reduction. Cooltone® treats the muscles to improve the overall look of the body. CoolSculpting® is a fat reduction procedure while Cooltone® is a skin tightening procedure.
What Can You Expect During a Cooltone® Treatment?
During the Cooltone® treatment, no anesthesia is needed, and an applicator is applied to deliver HIFEM energy to contract the muscle tissue. Approximately 25,000 supramaximal muscle contractions will occur during a single session. During treatment, the muscles adapt to this intensity and begin to remodel and develop muscle tissue. The process allows patients to receive natural looking tone and contours without a surgical procedure. One treatment session typically lasts about 30-45 minutes during which patients usually relax. As your session progresses, we usually increase the strength of the energy as you wish. You can do a very light treatment, but recommend more moderate high to high level.
