While the names may seem similar, CoolSculpting and CoolTone are actually very different things producing difference effects. Let’s get into more detail about the real differences between CoolSculpting vs CoolTone to help determine which is best for your needs and goals.
CoolSculpting vs CoolTone
While both of these treatments have the impact of making you look toned and fit, the way they work is very different.
CoolSculpting is a method in which your fat cells are frozen and discarded, leaving you with reduced fat in particularly stubborn areas.
CoolTone, on the other hand, doesn’t freeze away anything. Instead, this device uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) to target certain muscles in the body in order to tone and shape them, as if you were doing a workout. This results in a toned, tightened appearance in the treated areas.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting works by using something called cryolipolysis. What this does is actually cools the fat cells only to a freezing temperature where they then die and are naturally discarded by your body. Because of the natural process of the cells dying, it does take some time for the results to take effect since it’s not an instantaneous process.
How does CoolTone work?
CoolTone’s system works by, as mentioned above, targeting specific muscles of the thighs, butt, and abdomen with MMS, a muscle stimulation device made to firm and tone these areas. Think of it as a non-active workout for targeted muscles to give you the tone and shape you desire without the work involved.
Who is CoolSculpting and CoolTone best for?
Someone who’s a great fit for CoolSculpting is someone who is nearing their target weight, but can’t seem to get rid of the last few pounds of fat in stubborn areas. Typically, the best candidates for CoolSculpting lead a generally healthy lifestyle and are just looking to get rid of extra fat you can pinch between your fingers in various parts of the body, like your abdomen, arms, thighs, butt, under chin, and more.
The best fit for CoolTone is someone who has and maintains a healthy and balanced lifestyle. It’s also great for someone who is looking for additional help in toning specifically difficult or stubborn areas who doesn’t necessarily have all the time to dedicate to exercising often (though CoolTone is not a replacement for diet and exercise).
What areas does CoolSculpting vs CoolTone treat?
CoolSculpting treats a wider range of areas than CoolTone.
CoolSculpting can treat:
- under the chin
- under the jaw
CoolTone can treat:
Can you use CoolSculpting and CoolTone at the same time?
Ultimately, this will depend on each individual patient, as every body is different. However, since both of these treatments impact different types of tissue in the body, it’s possible to use both to enhance and accelerate your goal results. As always, whether this is the best method for you will be determined by your dermatologist.
