In the quest for aesthetic perfection, navigating the abundance of non-invasive treatment options can be as complex as the beauty standards themselves. At beyond|AESTHETICS in Camarillo and Ventura, we’re committed to demystifying this process, offering insight into two of our most sought-after treatments: CoolSculpting® Elite and CoolTone®. Let’s delve into the science, benefits, and considerations of each to help you sculpt your path to a more confident you.

Introducing CoolSculpting: The Fat-Freezing Frontier

CoolSculpting represents a leap in noninvasive fat reduction technology. Utilizing cryolipolysis, it targets and freezes stubborn fat cells beneath the skin in subcutaneous tissue. These cells are then naturally expelled from your body through the lymphatic system, ultimately leaving through feces, urine, and sweat. The process initiates an inflammation that continues for 14-30 days, with most fat cells being excreted by 90 days, revealing a more sculpted you.1

Who is CoolSculpting For?

Ideal for those looking to eliminate stubborn fat cells despite a rigorous diet and exercise regimen, CoolSculpting is a beacon for anyone beginning their journey to peak aesthetic form. It’s important to note that CoolSculpting does not address skin laxity, cellulite, or stretch marks.

Contraindications include: pregnancy and conditions like Cryoglobulinemia, which react negatively to cold, potentially increasing the risk for blood clots.

Discovering CoolTone: Muscle Definition Redefined

CoolTone moves beyond fat reduction, offering a muscle stimulation treatment that utilizes active magnetic pulses. Designed to tone, firm, and strengthen muscles, CoolTone can induce up to 25,000 muscle contractions in a single session. These contractions are influenced by intensity, frequency, and pulse width, working together to engage muscle fibers deeply and effectively.

Who is CoolTone For?

CoolTone is an excellent choice for patients aiming to enhance muscle firmness and tone. Particularly beneficial for those with back pain tied to weak abdominal muscles, CoolTone also stands as a non-surgical option for improving body contours. Ideal candidates are generally within a healthy BMI range and possess some degree of muscle definition.

Contraindications include: implanted electrical devices like pacemakers, Graves’ disease, and seizure disorders.

Treatment Experience and Expectations

CoolSculpting Treatment

Prepare for a session lasting 35-75 minutes, where you might initially feel a pulling, tugging, or pinching sensation followed by intense cold. Post-treatment includes a warm massage to enhance results, allowing you to return to daily activities with no downtime.

Cooltone Treatment

A typical session lasts 30 minutes, structured like a HIIT workout with periods of warm-up, active recovery, and cooldown. Afterward, patients can proceed with their day without any required recovery time.

CoolTone and CoolSculpting each offer unique pathways toward achieving your desired aesthetic outcomes. CoolTone is your go-to for strengthening, firming, and toning muscles while CoolSculpting targets and eliminates stubborn fat cells. While both treatments are very effective independently, they can also be combined for comprehensive body contouring, depending on your individual needs and goals.
