CoolSculpting is one of the most popular types of non-surgical cosmetic procedures available, because it is a nonsurgical and noninvasive way to permanently remove body fat. CoolTone is growing in popularity as well, and also uses noninvasive technology to create a beautiful body contour. With the weather growing steadily warmer and summer just around the corner, you may want to get that slim body back. Maybe you have a few extra chubby spots around your middle that you can’t shed. If this is the case for you, it’s worth looking into CoolSculpting or CoolTone.
The CoolSculpting procedure is ideal for adults who want to lose no more than 15 pounds and slim down their problem areas. Problem areas are the parts of the body where the individual has been unsuccessful at slimming down through traditional dieting and exercising alone. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure, which means there is no surgery and generally no downtime. There are multiple options regarding applicators to target stubborn fat on the abdomen, thighs, back, upper arms, knees, and even the chin.
CoolTone is the latest technology in CoolSculpting. It involves toning certain muscles in the typical problem areas that tend to have stubborn fat. Just like CoolSculpting itself, CoolTone is non-invasive and uses a technology known as Magnetic Muscle Stimulation, or MMS. This special technology works to tone up the muscles in the buttocks, thighs, and abdomen. It deeply penetrates the upper layer of fat to strengthen and tone the muscles in the problem area. CoolTone can be paired with CoolSculpting for enhanced results, permanently removing fat while revealing stronger, toned muscles.
CoolSculpting is a safe and effective solution for eliminating the stubborn fat that refuses to go away after you’ve tried dieting and exercise. It is a controlled process that focuses on the fat cells beneath the skin and reduces those fat cells by 20 to 25 percent. The treatment works by slowly killing off the fat cells, which are then permanently removed as the body naturally metabolizes the dead cells.
CoolSculpting permanently removes fat cells, but results must be maintained by maintaining your body weight through a healthy diet and exercise. If you gain weight, fat may be stored in areas of the body that were not previously treated by CoolSculpting.
As previously stated, CoolSculpting is a safe treatment for removing stubborn fat from the problem areas of the body. Because it is non-invasive and involves no surgery, you are not at risk of bleeding, infection, or any other complications as a result of the treatment. There is a cold sensation during the procedure when the cooling device is against your skin, but this is temporary and well-tolerated by most patients. You may experience minor side effects after your procedure, such as tingling and redness in the areas treated, but this too is temporary. Patients have no downtime after CoolSculpting and are free to return to their normal routine as soon as the appointment is done.
While CoolSculpting is safe and effective, it’s important to know that it’s not for everyone. For instance, because CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss procedure, the treatment is not suitable for those who are not at healthy body weight. Additionally, individuals with certain medical conditions should avoid getting CoolSculpting. It’s important to have a full consultation with your doctor if you are considering this type of treatment to ensure that you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting. Discuss your full medical history and mention whether you have any underlying medical conditions before undergoing the treatment.
