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.
What Is Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is a procedure in which cold energy is used to freeze and kill fat cells, after which the body can remove them safely. It is a procedure used to eliminate stubborn areas of fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. Coolsculpting is not a quick fix for body fat, and it is not a weight-loss treatment. Coolsculpting is, however, very effective for eliminating pockets of fat without more complex procedures like liposuction.
What Is CoolTone?
CoolTone is a new treatment from the same makers of CoolSculpting. This treatment works through magnetic muscle stimulation to firm and tone muscles. If you have muscle groups that are not toning with exercise, such as in the legs or arms, CoolTone can help you tone those muscle groups so that you look thinner and healthier. The treatment actually strengthens muscle fibers, which means that you will gain quite a bit of muscle definition with repetitive treatments. However, it is important to note that to build real muscle and increase muscle mass, you will need strength training and exercise.
it is important to note that neither of these treatments are tools for weight loss. The best candidates for Coolsculpting are those who are a healthy weight but need to rid themselves of stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. The best candidates for CoolTone are those who are a healthy weight and have minimal fat, but are seeking muscle definition.
