For those with stubborn fat, going to the gym or trying a diet is simply not enough. As we age, it becomes not only harder to get rid of excess weight, but also more of a struggle to obtain that long-desired summertime beach body. But worry no more, because there is a new cosmetic treatment that can literally freeze away your troubles: CoolSculpting. This revolutionary device, which can treat almost any area of the body, is the gold standard for getting rid of unwanted fat.
What Exactly is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a cryolipolysis device that non-surgically freezes and eliminates fat cells. It is the only non-invasive, FDA-approved fat treatment that uses cooling to achieve its results. Amazingly, CoolSculpting is quick, provides results that last up to 6 months, and requires no downtime; patients can immediately resume normal activity once their session ends.
Common areas that CoolSculpting targets include:
- Inner and Outer Thighs
- Back Rolls
- Love Handles and Saddlebags
Are CoolSculpting and CoolTone Similar?
CoolTone, another non-surgical procedure, is also offered by ZELTIK Aesthetics, the creators of CoolSculpting. CoolTone does not freeze fat cells but uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) to direct electromagnetic energy into the muscles and make them contract. CoolTone’s most popular areas of treatment include the buttocks, the abdomen, the arms, and the thighs. The sensation of CoolTone can best be compared to a mild muscle spasm, though a normal muscle spasm will not tone, strengthen, and define the muscles beneath your skin.
During the procedure, the doctor places the device on the target areas as magnetic energy stimulates and sculpts the muscles with phenomenal precision. Results typically take 2-4 weeks to show, but they last up to 6 months.
The Best Part: They Can Be Combined
These individual treatments are wonderful, but together, they work wonders. Usually, patients begin with the best CoolSculpting treatments available to break down their fat and turn to CoolTone to target the underlying muscles. After a few sessions, the patient will be noticeably thinner and more muscular. To keep your amazing results, of course, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle full of physical activity.
