Which Should You Do First? CoolSculpting or CoolTone?
What is CoolSculpting and CoolTone?
- CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses cooling technology to freeze and reduce stubborn fat cells in the body. It is FDA-cleared* to treat various areas such as the abdomen, love handles, back, inner and outer thighs, chin, knees, and bra fat. This safe procedure requires little to no downtime, and results can be seen after three to four months. CoolSculpting is an ideal alternative to liposuction as it does not require anesthesia or incisions and can be done in a spa setting. The best part is that once the fat cells are eliminated, they are gone for good! [Insert CoolSculpting applicator picture being used on the body.]
- CoolTone is the latest innovation from CoolSculpting, utilizing Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) to tone, strengthen, and firm muscles in the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. CoolTone is a safe and painless procedure that requires no downtime, and noticeable results can typically be seen after 4-6 treatments. This FDA-cleared device targets only the muscle layer by penetrating the fat layers, inducing involuntary muscle contractions. The body responds to these contractions by strengthening the muscle fibers, resulting in more toned and firm muscles.
Now that we understand the difference between CoolTone and CoolSculpting, let’s get to the exciting part. You may already have a good idea of which body contouring technology is your preferred choice, but hold on a second. Assuming you are a candidate for both, as most healthy individuals are, the answer to this question is… it depends.
The choice depends on your individual goals and preferences. If you want to tone and tighten muscles, CoolTone may be the better option. If you want to reduce stubborn fat, CoolSculpting may be the better option.
We understand that this answer can be frustrating, which is why our consultations are completely complimentary and highly beneficial. Our experts and master’s trained providers can make an informed decision after understanding your unique goals and conducting an in-person assessment.
