CoolTone by CoolSculpting

tone your muscles and achieve greater definition

CoolTone™ by CoolSculpting™

Most body contouring treatments available are designed to help the body rid itself of stubborn fat cells. From freezing fat cells via CoolSculpting to removing the cells through injections, lasers, or another method, the vast majority of these services and treatments aim at helping you with collections of fat on your body. However, CoolTone is different in that it doesn’t target fat cells.

Instead, it is designed to target muscle fiber in your body. After all, looking your best isn’t all about removing fat from your body. It’s also about toning, tightening, and shaping your muscles.

If you’ve been looking for a way to do just this, CoolTone by CoolSculpting may be the right nonsurgical body contouring method available.

Muscle Toning, Muscle Firming & Muscle Strengthening

cooltone deviceSo how does CoolTone help give you firmer, tighter, more toned muscles? To understand this it is important to dive into what goes on during a treatment session. When you go in for a CoolTone session, a rectangular device will be rolled up to you. This device has a wand-like design. It almost looks like a thick mirror attached to a cord that plugs into the large, rectangular device.

The wand is then positioned on the muscle you wish to work on. Using magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS), the wand will pulse the muscle. Essentially, it shoots electromagnetic energy into the muscle, which causes the muscle fibers to twitch. When this happens the muscle tissues will basically flex and relax, flex and relax, at a rapid rate.

This constant movement works the muscles and will lead to a strengthening of the muscle fiber. As the muscle fibers become stronger the cells will become tighter and firmer. This leads to a toned, defined look. You will likely feel tighter, firmer muscles, after just one session.

However, you’ll likely need to come in for several sessions before you can fully see the results. Unlike CoolSculpting, which takes weeks to months for the results to fully show, you can schedule multiple CoolTone treatment sessions during a single week.

How Does CoolTone Work?

Did you ever see commercials for the abdominal belts that, when placed around your abs, use an electromagnetic system to pulse the abs? If you have you will understand the basic concept of how CoolTone works.

Now, the electromagnetic pulse created by most of those belts was not strong enough to do much good. To strengthen the muscle fiber a strong, complete contraction of the muscles is needed.

A minor twitch in the muscle that is little more than surface-level will not help, so if you’ve purchased one of these belts in the past and didn’t see any results, more likely than not the strength of the belt wasn’t anywhere close to where it needed to be.

CoolTone is one of the strongest electromagnetic body contour treatment methods available. This is why CoolTone is FDA cleared to not only work on smaller muscles like he abs, but larger muscles like your quads, hamstrings, and gluteus (no consumer-grade device can work on these larger muscles and provide any real results).

What Can I Expect During a CoolTone Treatment?

During the treatment session, the CoolTone wand will be placed over the muscle, causing the muscle fibers to contract tightly before letting go. Your CoolTone technician will also work your muscles in different areas.

For the best result, it is important to work the targeted muscle in varying locations. It’s no different than working a given muscle at the gym. For the best workout, you need to alter how the muscle fiber is targeted. Doing so not only improves the quality of the results but it makes sure the entire muscle is hit and not just part of it.

For example, many muscle groups have multiple heads (take your bicep, which has two different heads, while the back of your arm, the triceps, have three, and each of these heads needs to be worked differently).

Your technician will understand the best way to work each muscle group to make sure it is targeted evenly, which will give you the best final result possible.

What is CoolTone by CoolSculpting?

You now know CoolTone forces your muscles to involuntarily constrict and relax using electromagnetic energy. To fully understand how this works it is necessary to look at what electromagnetic energy is.

You might have learned about electromagnetism back in high school physics class, but that might have been a long time ago and there’s no reason to go pick up a science textbook. The basics of electromagnetic energy are there is a physical interaction between electrically charged particles.

There are varying forms of electromagnetic energy. This can come from light, microwaves, radio waves, ultraviolet light, radar, and so on. Basically, a source device creates a kind of energy that causes a secondary object to react to it.

If you’ve ever experienced a sunburn before this is an example of ultraviolet electromagnetic energy. The sun created a form of energy that in return your skin reacted to (don’t worry, all the energy used to stimulate your muscles is safe).

This form of muscle treatment is a bit different from traditional weight training. When you train with weights you work on your motor nerves. Mild exercise (such as light jogging) will only focus on the slow-twitch muscle fibers.

But with CoolTone, the treatment hits the fast-twitch muscle fibers (fast-twitch muscle fibers are used for explosive moves, such as changing directions quickly when running, such as what a basketball or football play might do).

CoolTone also focuses on the sensory nerves in your body. Due to this, it works your muscles in a slightly different way from mild exercise.

Benefits of Cooltone

CoolTone will not cause your muscles to grow larger. This only happens when you tear the muscle fibers in your body and you intake enough protein to repair and build the muscles to a larger state. Most muscle growth occurs following extreme weight training.

Instead, CoolTone affects your muscles in a way similar to Pilates, Zumba, or another high-intensity cardiovascular exercise. With this kind of a workout, you won’t grow larger muscles. Instead, you’ll tone the muscles.

By working the muscles and tightening them, there will be greater definition, which in turn will make the muscles look more solid with greater visual appeal.

CoolTone Before and After

CoolTone will help tighten and tone your muscles. Soft muscle tissue will become firmer and more solid. It will have a better shape to it. The exact final result will vary depending on where you’re starting and how often it is used.

Every person reacts a bit differently, so your before and after may vary from the next person. It may also take a handful of treatment sessions for you to reach your desired goals.

Additionally, you may need to have other body contour procedures performed before using CoolTone.

For example, if you want to strengthen your abs but can’t currently see the abs it might be necessary to take advantage of CoolSculpting, or something similar, to strip away the layer of fat and expose the abs.

This way, when you begin the CoolTone ab treatment you’ll see results faster.
