If your exercise regimen includes regular aerobic activity and strength training along with a low-fat, high-fiber diet, it can be frustrating when you still don’t achieve the body you want. It’s common to still have stubborn deposits of fat on areas like the stomach, hips, and thighs even with the most devoted efforts.
If you’ve started considering cosmetic body contouring to tone up your stubborn areas, then it’s important to know about some of the best options in the industry. One of these is CoolTone™ and it’s likely that you’ve heard about its counterpart, CoolSculpting®. The fact is, CoolTone is one of the best options for building muscle and burning fat at the same time, so here’s what to know about it.
Building Muscle with CoolTone
To understand how CoolTone builds muscle, it’s important to understand how muscles grow when exercised. When you perform strength training exercises, your muscles will need time to recuperate. During this process, the muscle fibers grow thicker and stronger, but this can take time and you’re limited by the exercises you can comfortably perform. CoolTone does the work for you, stressing your muscles beyond what you can achieve on your own and causing them to build mass in response. This process also burns fat for even more body sculpting benefits.
How CoolTone Works
The CoolTone procedure usually takes about thirty minutes from start to completion. Your CoolTone technician will apply magnetic muscle stimulation technology (MMS) to the area. High-frequency electromagnetic stimulation will force the muscles to contract involuntarily multiple times per minute while you relax with your entertainment of choice.
It’s important to note that this process feels like flexing your muscles during a workout. It’s virtually painless, and afterward you can go about your normal activities. You may experience a little muscle soreness the day following your sessions, but this subsides within a few days like a normal workout.
After six treatments over two weeks, you’ll begin noticing results. Most patients see a marked improvement in the tone and contours of areas like the stomach, and these results can improve over the following weeks and months. You can opt for touch-up treatments as needed.
Is CoolTone Right for You?
The best candidates for CoolTone are those who have already lost weight but are looking for more definition in areas like the thighs, buttocks, and stomach. Although CoolTone can be helpful in burning fat and improving your figure, it’s important to be at a stable, healthy weight to get the best out of your results. If you still have weight to lose, our team can give you the best idea of how CoolTone can help you put the finishing touches on the new you.
