Everything You Need To Know About My Fat Treatment

SHARE THIS POST:

If you want to achieve your ideal body goals, it’s crucial to find a treatment that works for you.

Some individuals can lose extra weight by working out and sticking to a low-calorie diet. However, many patients require medical assistance before they can succeed in shedding a few pounds.

Fortunately, there are treatments available that make this possible. For example, you can choose between two options for fat treatment: CoolSculpting®  and CoolTone™.

Let’s take a look.

What Is CoolSculpting®? 

CoolSculpting® is a fat-freezing technology that is scientifically proven to reduce pockets of fat without undergoing surgery.

It is also FDA-cleared to treat 9 different areas of the body, including the following:

  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Bra fat
  • Visible bulges under the chin
  • Banana roll (fat underneath the buttocks)
  • Back fat
  • Bulges under the jawline areas

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

The CoolSculpting® procedure works by eliminating fat cells in your body. Fat cells don’t like the cold. Once they’re at the right temperature, they will freeze; This is what CoolSculpting® does.

It uses extremely low temperatures to freeze and destroy fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues.

After that, your body will eliminate the fat cells between 1-3 months after treatment, resulting in up to 20-25% fat reduction in the treatment area.

CoolSculpting® is ideal for patients who are:

  • Within 20 pounds of their ideal weight;
  • Have pinchable fat; and
  • Wants to get rid of stubborn fat without undergoing surgery.

What Is CoolTone™?

On the other hand, there is the CoolTone™ treatment, a non-invasive body contouring treatment used for strengthening, toning, and firming the muscles of the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.

This latest innovation by Allergan uses the Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) technology. As such, it can penetrate below the fat layer to tone the targeted muscles.

How Does CoolTone™  Work?

CoolTone™’s applicator generates a magnetic field that creates an induced current directed to the target muscles.

When applied, the body responds to these contractions by strengthening its muscle fibers, thereby improving muscle conditioning.

In fact, a 30-minute CoolTone™ procedure can stimulate the muscles nearly 25,000 times. Moreover, it contracts almost 100% of your targeted muscles compared to the 30% muscle stimulation you get from regular exercise.

Ideal Candidate For CoolTone™

CoolTone™ is a good option for patients who are:

  • At least 18 years old;
  • Generally in good health;
  • At their ideal weight or within their range; and
  • Don’t have excessive fat deposits.

Benefits of Non-Surgical Fat Treatment 

Patients in Scottsdale, AZ, can experience the following benefits from my fat treatments:

  • Faster recovery time compared to surgical procedures;
  • Minimal side effects; and
  • Gradual onset of natural-looking results.

However, it’s important to remember that CoolSculpting® and CoolTone™ are not weight loss treatments. Thus, patients have to be at or near their ideal weight before undergoing either treatment.
