Get Your Body Beach Ready with CoolSculpting and CoolTone
Summer is approaching at a rapid rate, which means we are starting to shed some layers and show off some skin. After the long winter months, many are concerned about losing weight and appearing more fit. If you have been trying to lose weight and gain muscle but nothing seems to work, it may be time to consider CoolSculpting or CoolTone. Just like any procedure, it is important to understand how they work and what they can do for you.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA approved treatment designed to help eliminate stubborn fat. The way that it works is by using a new technique that targets and freezes fat cells that are located in a specific area. This will cause the cells to die and leave your body naturally. Most procedures take approximately an hour, but it can vary depending on the size of the area being treated.
What Is CoolTone?
As opposed to eliminating fat, CoolTone is designed to tone and enhance muscle mass. It does not rely on fat freezing technology and instead uses the process of magnetic muscle stimulation. This process sends quick bursts of electromagnetic energy into the muscles, which causes them to contract. This strengthens the muscles fibers, eventually resulting in more tightened and toned muscles.
How Can CoolSculpting and CoolTone Help You?
Regardless of your activity level or diet, there are some spots that tend to store fat more than others. For some, this could be their legs, while others may struggle with a double chin. CoolSculpting is something that will be able to help a lot of people. It is designed to remove stubborn fat from the body. However, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure and is better suited for those looking the eliminate small pockets of fat.
For those looking to enhance and tone their muscles, CoolTone can help you develop stronger muscle fibers. CoolTone can be used on many areas of the body, one of the most popular being the abdominal region.
There are many benefits to using CoolSculpting and CoolTone together. CoolSculpting will help eliminate and reduce fat cells, while CoolTone will tighten the muscles underneath. This results in a slimmer, more sculpted body.
Are CoolSculpting and CoolTone Safe?
CoolSculpting is very safe and since it is a non-surgical treatment there are less risks than what comes with a surgical procedure. There are numerous studies showing how effective the treatment is and it has been approved by the FDA. You may still experience a few minor side effects afterward, such as redness, numbness, tingling, and possibly even soreness. There are people with certain medical conditions, like cryoglobulinemia, that should not undergo this procedure.
CoolTone is created by Allergen, the same manufacturer behind CoolSculpting. It is also an FDA approved treatment that has proven to be very safe. Similar to CoolSculpting, the side effects of CoolTone may include soreness, redness, or tingling in the area being treated.
At The Center for Dermatology & Aesthetic Medicine in Chicago, IL, Dr. Cavanaugh and Dr. Kalimullah will walk you through everything you need to know before undergoing the treatment.
How Long Will The Results Last?
Everybody has a certain amount of fat cells in their body. CoolSculpting destroys these fat cells. So, unlike losing weight naturally, this fat will not be able to come back unless there are major changes in their weight. However, a healthy lifestyle will be the best way to maintain your results. For many people, this procedure is exactly what they need to jump-start the process of dieting and exercising to maintain their new physique.
CoolTone results can last six months or longer. However, you can better maintain the results with periodic treatments. It will also be beneficial to continue a healthy lifestyle and exercise regimen.
