How does CoolTone work?

What is CoolTone?

Despite the word “cool” in its name, CoolTone doesn’t freeze the fat like CoolSculpting does. Instead, it’s intended to help tone and strengthen the muscles in your body. CoolTone is a noninvasive body contouring device that addresses fat reduction, muscle toning, and skin tightening. CoolTone uses high-frequency electromagnetic technology to stimulate muscle contractions in a manner that cannot be achieved by voluntary contractions or normal exercise. By inducing maximal muscle contractions, the device increases strength and muscle mass. Depending on your area of concern, CoolTone can be used to improve muscle tone in the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and/or arms.

CoolTone vs CoolSculpting:

These treatments are not remotely similar, other than the “cool” in their titles. CoolSculpting is the world’s most popular body-contouring procedure. It uses controlled cooling delivered down into the treatment areas. The cooling is set to the temperature at which fat cells freeze and die, but these temperatures don’t harm the adjacent skin and muscle tissue cells. The fat cells freeze and the body then pass them out through the lymphatic system over the course of the next few weeks after the treatment. CoolSculpting delivers proven fat reduction — it eliminates 24 percent of the fat cells in the treatment areas. CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure.

This body contouring treatment is made by Allergan, the same company that now owns CoolSculpting. That explains the similar name. CoolTone does not involve cooling in any way, however. Instead, CoolTone uses electromagnetic energy that passes through skin and fat layers and targets the muscles beneath. This electromagnetic energy induces tens of thousands of involuntary muscle contractions in these muscles, far more than could be achieved with exercise. These muscle contractions tone and build muscle fiber. This sculpts and firms the treatment areas. CoolTone is a muscle-toning treatment, not a fat reduction treatment like CoolSculpting.
