7 Things You Didn't Know About CoolTone
This blog is all about the CoolTone treatment, the non-invasive procedure that strengthens and tones muscles!
If you have ever tried to tone your body or lose some weight, you will probably recognize the term “dream board.” Usually, fitness dream boards consist of images of people whose physiques you really admire. Back in the day, these were made up of magazine clippings, but today most of us just use Pinterest. We post pictures of our favorite Instagram influencers, models, and fitness gurus, all in the hope that these images can inspire us not to give up on the strenuous journey toward our dream bodies.
That said, these dream boards can have the opposite effect. Sometimes, dream boards discourage you instead of inspiring you. Even if you are eating well and exercising regularly, there are things that can prevent your body from looking like the ones you posted to Pinterest. Genetics, age, injuries, and other factors can play into your body’s fat distribution and muscle density. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to sculpt your body into the shape that you’ve been hoping to achieve.
Meet CoolTone, a body sculpting technology that can turn your figure into one worthy of your, or anyone else’s, fitspo dream board. Here are seven things you need to know about CoolTone before you take the plunge and sculpt your body into its ideal shape!
What is CoolTone?
CoolTone is a body sculpting technology developed by the makers of Botox and CoolSculpting. However, unlike CoolSculpting, CoolTone does not freeze fat. Instead, it uses magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) to induce involuntary muscle contractions that mimic intense exercise.
How does it work?
CoolTone directs electromagnetic energy at the patient’s muscles, which cause contractions at a rate that is impossible to achieve through a voluntary workout. The body responds to these contractions by strengthening the muscle fiber in the treatment area, resulting in stronger, firmer, toned and defined muscles.
Is it safe?
Yes! CoolTone is FDA-approved. This treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive, meaning you won’t have to undergo anesthesia or deal with scarring. Plus, there’s no downtime, so you can resume your normal daily activities immediately after treatment.
What areas of my body can I treat?
Currently, CoolTone is approved to treat three areas: the abs, butt, and thighs.
How many CoolTone sessions do I need?
Most patients generally need four treatments over the course of two weeks, followed by maintenance treatments every one to four weeks.
Is CoolTone painful?
CoolTone causes minimal discomfort. Most of our patients report feeling a warm, contracting sensation at the beginning of the treatment as the body adjusts to the MMS. However, after the treatment, you may experience the type of soreness you would feel after a particularly intense workout.
Does CoolTone replace exercise?
No. Genuine exercise can benefit a person’s cardiovascular and endocrine systems, mental health, and overall well being. CoolTone, although it mimics the motions of working out and can provide aesthetic benefits, cannot replace true exercise. However, CoolTone can be a great addition to your fitness routine. Since it strengthens muscles, patients have reported that it boosts stamina and workout performance after treatment!
