What's the Difference Between CoolTone and CoolSculpting?

In previous eras, achieving your ideal body could involve strict dieting, spending hours at the gym, and undergoing invasive cosmetic surgical procedures. 

Now, thanks to medical advances, you can lose fat and gain muscle by combining cutting-edge nonsurgical procedures with living a healthy lifestyle.

At IYA Medical in Scottsdale, Arizona, we recommend CoolSculpting® and CoolTone™ to busy adults looking for an easy, quick, and noninvasive body contouring solution. 

Keep reading to learn more about the differences between CoolSculpting and CoolTone and which treatment is best for you.

About CoolSculpting

The FDA-cleared CoolSculpting technique uses innovative technology to reduce stubborn fat deposits throughout your body. 

CoolSculpting is an excellent treatment choice if you’re a busy adult looking for a convenient way to rid yourself of frustrating areas of fat that aren’t resolving with healthy lifestyle choices.

CoolSculpting can reduce many areas of your body that tend to collect fat, including your stomach, back, thighs, upper arms, and buttocks, and the area under the chin. Each CoolSculpting treatment can reduce the fat in the area of your choice by up to 25%.

Your CoolSculpting session only takes an hour and is painless. The CoolSculpting applicator uses cryolipolysis to freeze your excess fat cells, which your body passes painlessly and naturally. You see the full results within four months of each treatment.

About CoolTone

The CoolTone solution helps your body create more toned muscles than you can achieve through strength training alone. Using magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) technology, CoolTone contours large areas of muscles by firming, toning, and strengthening large muscle groups. 

CoolTone is FDA-cleared for use on your thighs, abdomen, and buttocks. Each CoolTone treatment takes no more than 45 minutes and feels similar to doing strength training as your targeted muscles contract during treatment.

During a CoolTone session, we use liquid-cooled applicators to trigger 25,000 strong muscle contractions, which increase the strength of muscle fibers. You should notice results soon after getting four treatments in one-week intervals.

The differences between CoolSculpting and CoolTone

CoolSculpting and CoolTone treatments have some similarities, but there are also key differences between each body contouring procedure. These are the main differences to keep in mind.

Treatment goals

CoolSculpting and CoolTone target different results. CoolSculpting works to reduce your body fat percentage by targeting and eliminating specific areas of fat, while CoolTone helps you achieve higher levels of muscle definition and a stronger, firmer body.

Technology used

CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis fat freezing technology to reduce areas of excess fat. CoolTone’s MMS technology works to stimulate contractions that strengthen and firm your muscles.

Time to achieve results

CoolTone results are visible within a week after each session. The CoolSculpting process works more slowly, with full results taking up to four months to appear.

Which treatment should I get?

Choosing between CoolSculpting and CoolTone ultimately depends on your desired outcome. You should choose CoolSculpting if you’re looking to reduce fat and CoolTone to define your muscles and improve your physical strength.

If you’re interested in attaining both results, we can give you CoolSculpting and CoolTone treatments concurrently. 

You develop stronger, more toned muscles on your abdomen, legs, or buttocks as your fat deposits shrink, and you’ll be able to see the defined muscles more clearly after lowering the fat percentage in the same area.

If you’re not certain which treatment is right for you, our team can help you determine a personalized treatment course at your consultation.
