Cool Tone Vs. Coolsculpting: What You Need to Know

You may have noticed that there is a new treatment option out there called Cool Tone. It may appear at first glance that this treatment is similar to Coolsculpting, but the two treatments are actually very different. Here’s what you need to know about the two treatments and their differences.

Neck Lift Vs. Mini-Lift: The Difference in Results and Recovery

Coolsculpting: Not Just for Body Contouring

Coolsculpting has become more and more popular over the last few years, and it is a highly effective treatment for minimally invasive body contouring. Coolsculpting is often used to combat stubborn fat areas such as the thighs, abdomen, and love handles, but did you know that this treatment can be used in other areas as well? Here’s how Coolsculpting can change your facial appearance.

What Is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting is a minimally invasive procedure that kills fat cells and allows them to reabsorb or eliminate from the body. The fat cells are frozen with the Coolsculpting equipment, causing them to die. The destroyed fat cells are then excreted out of the body through the liver within a few weeks of treatment. This means that those fat cells cannot come back, and the target area will no longer have excess fat. The results are fairly permanent, although weight gain can cause the effects to be less effective. Continue reading “Coolsculpting: Not Just for Body Contouring”
