CoolSculpting Elite® and CoolTone® are innovative technologies sharing an important feature — they help people achieve their body-shape dreams. How each goes about it, however, is quite different.
At Advanced Aesthetics Lopez Plastic Surgery, Dr. Manuel Lopez has equipped our offices in the greater San Antonio area with both cutting-edge systems. To help you decide which is best for your body-shape goals, we take a closer look at CoolSculpting Elite and Cooltone below.
Eliminating lumps and bumps
You diet and exercise, and you’re at or near your target weight, but certain pockets of fat have formed stubborn lumps and bumps on your body that you just can’t eliminate.
Body fat marches to its own biological drum and doesn’t respond well to spot reduction efforts. With CoolSculpting, we work around this by directly targeting the fat cells in your problem areas.
CoolSculpting is a fat-reduction technology that relies on cooling energy to destroy up to 24% of the fat cells in your treatment areas. With CoolSculpting, you can decide where to reduce fat. Best of all, once we destroy the fat cells with CoolSculpting, they’re gone for good.
To give you an idea about how effective fat reduction technologies like CoolSculpting are, they’re now the number three minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the United States, just behind treatments like Botox and dermal fillers. We want to point out that even though the category is labeled “minimally invasive,” CoolSculpting is non-invasive.
Tightening and toning
Once the bumps and lumps are eliminated, you might want to go the extra mile by giving your body a tighter and toned look. Exercise is a great way to accomplish those goals, but we can boost these efforts with CoolTone.
This unique technology uses Active Magnetic Pulse™ (AMP™) technology to contract your muscles in a way they couldn’t accomplish on their own.
The magnetic pulses target every muscle fiber in the treatment area, causing contractions at a rate you wouldn’t be able to attain even with the most rigorous exercise.
The CoolTone technology is cleared by the FDA to build muscle tone in the areas where people want it most:
Our clients find that CoolTone is a great way to put the finishing touches on their body contouring efforts with CoolSculpting Elite, making the two technologies an effective combination treatment.
For the best results, we recommend a series of CoolSculpting Elite and CoolTone treatments, which we space apart to allow time for your body to respond. Both treatments are non-invasive, so there’s no downtime afterward.
