Getting your dream body requires discipline. It requires several hours in the gym, properly portioned food items, self-control, and determination to follow the rules you have set for yourself. What if you could greatly increase your muscle tone and strength in just a short 30-minute session? Let us introduce you to CoolTone, a non-invasive treatment that contracts your muscles in just a short period of time, giving you results you would only see otherwise with daily aggressive gym workouts.
CoolTone is an energy-based, non-invasive treatment that uses magnetic technology to stimulate muscle contractions. This treatment aims to firm and tighten a large group of muscles that can be difficult to tone through regular weight training, like muscles in the buttocks or abdomen.
How long can you enjoy CoolTone results?
You may wonder how long the results will last? CoolTone results usually last for three to six months after your first series of treatments. And with regular follow-up appointments or continuing a body toning exercise routine, you can certainly keep the results for longer.
What are some ways to maintain the results?
There are several ways to maintain the results that you obtained from CoolTone. First, you can schedule a follow-up treatment twice a year. By having your muscles maintained through the same treatment, your muscles will be kept toned and firmed in a continuous manner, even without heading to the gym.
If you do not prefer going to the clinic regularly and want to have a healthier and improved lifestyle, you can engage in toning exercises. Engaging in these activities is one of the most efficient ways to maintain your toned muscles between scheduled treatments.
You can maintain your results through resistance training, pilates, and yoga exercises. In addition to these toning exercises, you can incorporate weightlifting exercises to help build muscles.
Managing your weight can be an effective way to maintain your toned muscles. Maintaining a good weight can be accomplished by following a balanced diet, drinking lots of fluids, and engaging in regular physical activities.
What you need to know about CoolTone
Other than how long CoolTone results last, there are other aspects that patients are curious about. Following are some answers to questions you may have about CoolTone.
Does CoolTone tighten the skin?
CoolTone is a treatment designed to tone, tighten, and build muscles; that is why many patients find CoolTone promising. The results show tighter skin in large muscle groups.
Also, because of the magnetic technology used in CoolTone, blood flow in the areas is increased, stimulating the production of elastin and collagen, and improving the skin tone as well.
Can CoolTone help me lose weight?
If you are looking for a treatment for weight loss, unfortunately, CoolTone is not one. In fact, you may actually gain more muscle mass, which may increase your weight.
However, one side effect of CoolTone can be a minimal fat reduction in the target areas. The fat affected is superficial and above the muscle being treated.
What areas can I use CoolTone?
CoolTone is ideal for large muscle groups such as the buttocks, abdomen, and thighs. Although this treatment can be done in other areas, the mentioned muscle groups are the only ones approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
What happens during the CoolTone procedure?
The procedure uses a unique device that delivers magnetic muscle stimulation energy to the target area. Once this energy reaches the muscles, the muscles will be subjected to rapid contractions, leading to increased tone in the targeted muscles.
The CoolTone treatment lasts for 30 minutes. However, this can be longer if you choose to treat multiple areas at a time.
What are the things I should know before and after the procedure?
There are no required steps before the treatment. The treatment can be done over the clothing. You will want to avoid any metal on your clothing or your body during treatment. The magnetic muscle stimulation can also affect electronic devices, so it is encouraged that cell phones and other electronic devices are not close to the treatment area. Moreover, after the treatment, it is encouraged that you go back to your daily routine. Engaging in regular exercise makes results appear faster and longer.
Will there be a downtime or recovery period?
There is no recovery period in this treatment. Your muscles, however, may feel sore, just like after working out. Other than that, you do not have to deal with aftercare.
Who can receive the CoolTone treatment?
The CoolTone treatment is generally safe for most people. However, contraindications such as being pregnant, being diagnosed with certain conditions, and having metal implants or pacemakers may be a contraindication to treatment. Make sure to disclose any health-related information to the technician before you do the procedure.
How many treatments do I need to achieve the best results?
The result of this treatment is best seen after multiple sessions. Two treatments each week, for two consecutive weeks equaling four treatments, is a great starting point. Depending on your goal, you may want more. Once you achieve your desired look, you may want to treat every 3 to 6 months to maintain the optimal results.
