If diet and exercise haven’t been helping you achieve your body goals, you owe it to yourself to learn about your treatment options. Although some people resort to surgery in order to address stubborn areas, non-surgical treatments exist that offer incredible results without all of the hassle and risk involved in undergoing a surgical procedure. One of the best of these treatments is CoolTone™, and for good reason.
Here at LĀK Med Spa in Wayzata, MN, we’re committed to providing you with the most innovative, state-of-the-art cosmetic and body contouring treatments so that you can achieve the body of your dreams. As part of that commitment, we’re proud to offer CoolTone™, a revolutionary new treatment by Allergan that increases muscle mass and reduces fat at the same time.
How CoolTone™ Works
The CoolTone™ device uses electromagnetic stimulation to induce contractions in the muscles. These are stronger and faster than anything you could achieve at the gym. Using this device on the buttocks, for example, is like doing 30,000 squats in just minutes.
The body responds to this treatment by growing and strengthening the muscle fibers, just as it does after a session at the gym. The difference is that it takes no effort on your part. After four treatments, patients in clinical studies of CoolTone™ gained an average of 16% more muscle mass.
While this isn’t a fat loss treatment, nor does it target fat specifically, it can still result in fat loss. The muscles need energy to perform their contractions, and they take it from nearby fat cells. This happens naturally, within your body, rather than as a result of an invasive procedure like liposuction.
What Does the Treatment Involve?
Treatments are performed in the comfort of our office in Wayzata, MN, and most people need a series of treatments to get their ideal results. However, it all depends on the unique case, as results and individual treatment regimens vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors.
This treatment can be used on the buttocks, triceps, thighs, and abdomen. It’s said to feel just like simple muscle contractions. It doesn’t cause any more soreness than you would experience after an intense session at the gym.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Most people at or close to their ideal weight who already live a healthy lifestyle qualify for treatment. Those with significant stores of fat should lose weight before seeking this treatment as a final body contouring step, since the CoolTone™ energy may not be able to penetrate the fat and stimulate the muscles properly. Ultimately, the only way to find out about your candidacy is to consult a qualified professional.
