It might be hard to hear, but the truth is that a dedicated exercise routine and a balanced diet aren’t always enough to get the body of your dreams. While diet and exercise are the healthiest ways to lose weight and get into shape, when it comes to achieving a certain body shape, these traditional methods aren’t always effective – usually because it’s hard to lose unwanted fat in certain areas of the body, such as the stomach or underarms. Fortunately, at Beautique in Knoxville, TN, we know that CoolTone and CoolSculpting are aesthetic treatments that can help you achieve your body goals.
CoolTone and CoolSculpting are body contouring treatments that can help you reduce unwanted fat and tone muscles. These revolutionary treatments are painless, convenient, and non-invasive, making them the perfect option for those who need a helping hand to achieve their ideal body shape. Whether you use one treatment or both treatments, we are confident that you can accomplish your aesthetic goals.
What Is the Difference Between CoolTone and CoolSculpting?
Although these sister treatments use similar cooling technology, they are actually very different. The main difference between these treatments is the purpose they serve. CoolSculpting is primarily a fat reduction treatment that eliminates stubborn pockets of fat on the body. CoolTone, on the other hand, is a treatment that tones and builds muscles.
The differences between these two body contouring treatments mean that patients can choose between – or even combine – these treatments to achieve their specific goals. Compared to other body contouring treatments, these cold contouring treatments work in harmony to easily help you enhance your look.
Why Should You Consider Body Contouring Treatments?
A body contouring treatment is any technology-based treatment that shapes your body by tightening skin, reducing unwanted fat, and building muscle. Advancements in technology combined with a better understanding of body chemistry have made recent body contouring treatments much more effective, particularly when compared to traditional diet and exercise that may never achieve your body goals.
There are several advantages to consider when you are thinking about using body contouring treatments to enhance your shape. For example, in terms of treatment areas, you can use these treatments on virtually any of the area of the body, including:
Many patients choose to only use these treatments in areas of the body where they are struggling to shed fat or build muscle, such as the abdominal region. Other patients use body contouring treatments as a whole-body solution to achieve their complete aesthetic goals. Some of the main reasons to consider these treatments include:
Body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting Knoxville are designed to reduce small amounts of fat that are difficult to get rid of through traditional methods. However, while a fat reduction treatment like this one can help you lose up to 25% of unwanted fat in any region of the body, it’s important to realize that these body contouring treatments are not designed to eliminate obesity. In other words, while fat reduction may be moderate, these treatments do not help people lose significant amounts of weight.
Instead, the true purpose of these treatments is to re-sculpt the body subtly to reduce pockets of unwanted fat. Factors like genetics, hormonal changes, and lifestyle habits can determine how much fat is stored in any area of the body, and these same factors can also make it difficult for traditional diet and exercise to work. CoolSculpting gets around these challenges and can effectively remove unwanted fat deposits.
Building and toning muscles are hard work. In fact, even for gym enthusiasts, toning muscles takes a lot of time and effort, and sometimes the payoff isn’t entirely up to your standards. But while you should hit the gym for cardio and resistance training, sometimes it can be easier to use an aesthetic treatment to give you a foundation to work with. Many people use CoolTone as the first step to building and toning muscles on various areas of their body, particularly the stomach, thighs, and arms.
Feel More Confident
The desire to feel more confident about your appearance shouldn’t be underestimated. One of the main reasons people use this treatment is to increase their confidence and self-esteem every time they look in the mirror or try on new clothes. Some experts suggest that the psychological impact of feeling confident about your appearance also has a positive impact on your overall health since many people make better choices when they are happy with their appearance.
Many Ideal Candidates
One of the primary benefits of these treatments is the fact that most people are ideal candidates. In general, candidates for these cool body contouring treatments should be healthy, within 20 lbs of their BMI-approved goal weight, and committed to an active lifestyle.
Women should not be pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to be pregnant, as pregnancy will undo the results of this treatment. If you aren’t close to your goal weight yet, then you may want to wait until your weight loss journey is almost done to seek either of these treatments.
The best part about these particular body contouring treatments is that they are non-invasive and completely painless. Somebody contouring treatments involve heat or other stimulation that can be uncomfortable, but both of these cool contouring treatments prioritize patient comfort. Many patients find these treatments so painless that they even nap during the 30 to 60-minute treatment sessions.
No Preparation or Downtime
Unlike surgery for fat removal and muscle tightening, there is no preparation or downtime associated with these body contouring treatments. In fact, the only thing you will need to do before your appointment is to make sure you’re wearing loose, comfortable clothing and that you have a book or a fully charged smartphone for entertainment during your treatment.
After your treatment, you will not have any activity restrictions. In fact, we encourage patients to continue with their normal exercise and diet plans on the same day as treatment. You will be able to back to work or finish your daily tasks after this treatment.
Natural Looking and Long-Lasting Results
While liposuction and plastic surgery can make drastic changes to your overall appearance, it’s sometimes the case that the results of these procedures don’t look natural. Liposuction is actually infamous for creating “lumpy” results, particularly in the stomach area. However, non-surgical body contouring treatments are highly effective for creating natural-looking results, as well as results that will last for several years or even a lifetime.
Maintaining your results is all about maintaining your healthy lifestyle. After your treatments have toned your muscles and reduced unwanted fat, the most important thing you will need to do is continue eating a healthy, balanced diet and exercising for at least three hours each week.
Important Things to Know About CoolTone
CoolTone is an ideal treatment to firm, tone, and strengthen various muscle groups on the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. This treatment uses MMS (magnetic muscle stimulation) technology to stimulate hundreds of rapid muscle contractions, which encourages muscles to become firm and more defined. Many patients who use this treatment also build muscle at the gym or through other exercises.
How Does Treatment Work?
This treatment works by placing a special device on your targeted area of treatment, which will then activate your muscles and cause your muscles to rapidly contract. A single 30-minute treatment session can cause roughly 20,000 muscle contractions, which is something that definitely can’t be accomplished through normal exercise.
When Will You See Results?
For best results, we recommend patients attend several treatment sessions spaced two to three days apart; many patients have at least three to six sessions to kickstart their results. The first results of this treatment will be detectable as early as four weeks after your first appointment and will continue to improve for about six months.
The gradual toning process of this treatment will help your results appear natural. However, while the results of this treatment can certainly be long-lasting, the results are not always permanent. If you want to maintain your toned physique, then you will need to use exercise or annual treatments to keep your muscles tight and strong.
Important Things to Know About CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is the first treatment of its kind to use cooling technology to freeze away unwanted fat on the body. Unlike other tissues, fat cells are more vulnerable to cold temperatures, which means that fat cells can easily die when the fat layer is cooled to a low degree. Over time, your body will naturally eliminate these unwanted fat cells from your body.
How Does Treatment Work?
This treatment works by applying a variety of different-sized applicators and protective conductive gel to the skin; the different sizes of the applicators mean you can treat multiple areas of the body at one time, including smaller areas. Once the treatment device is turned on, the vacuum and cooling element will lower the temperature of targeted fat cells to cause cell death that does not harm the surrounding tissue. Most treatments will take about an hour to complete.
When Will You See Results?
Your first results will be noticeable about two to three weeks after your first treatment and your final results should show up after about two months. Most patients will require about one to three appointments spaced a few weeks apart to achieve their ideal results. The number of appointments you will need will depend on your goals and how much unwanted fat you are eliminating.
The results of CoolSculpting can last a lifetime since fat cells can’t regenerate after they die. However, any remaining fat cells in your body can store new fat, so it’s important to manage your weight to maintain your results.
Can You Combine These Treatments?
Yes and no. Whether or not you combine these treatments will depend on what your goals are and the areas of the body you are treating. CoolSculpting is ideal for those who have a moderate amount of unwanted fat but who do not necessarily want to build muscle. CoolTone, on the other hand, can reduce a small amount of unwanted fat and may be a treatment that can help with fat reduction and muscle toning at the same time. Our experts will help you determine which treatment is right for you and help you build a treatment plan that meets your goals.
