How to Build Muscle With CoolTone™ Body Contouring

How to Build Muscle With CoolTone™ Body Contouring  Portland

Do you wish you had six-pack abs or a toned derrière? There are many people dedicated to hitting the gym who are not seeing real results. No matter how hard you work, factors such as genetics may be holding you back. Not only that, most of us don’t have the time or the resources to commit to working out on a daily basis. The professionals at Après Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Portland, OR, can help fill in the gaps to get you the sculpted appearance you want, including toned muscles in the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.

Toning the muscles of the body used to take years of hard work and training. Now there is an advanced new technology that can give your body a more sculpted look in your target areas. Après Plastic Surgery & Med Spa proudly offers CoolTone, an FDA-cleared device that helps men and women alike gain more muscle tone. With a process called magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS), CoolTone uses electromagnetic energy to build muscle mass in less time than traditional workouts. Read on as our cosmetic surgery clinic evaluates the CoolTone device, how it works, and what you can expect from treatment.

Achieve better muscle definition 

CoolTone is manufactured by Allergan®, the same trusted company that created CoolSculpting. These treatments may sound similar, but they actually accomplish different goals for patients. While CoolSculpting is intended to freeze away fat cells, CoolTone works by strengthening and building the muscles of the body. Both procedures are completed in the comfort and safety of Après Plastic Surgery & Med Spa. In fact, both of these FDA-cleared treatments can be used together to help you achieve the best results possible.

CoolTone is an exciting technology that works by targeting the muscles under the fat. When electromagnetic energy stimulates the muscles, it causes involuntary contractions that feel similar to a muscle spasm. As a result, the targeted areas will strengthen and tone up. The design of the CoolTone device allows for a variety of treatment areas, such as the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. Additional areas may be cleared at some point in the future, but we have found that the abs, thighs, and backside are usually the areas our patients want to focus on. Sessions can be customized to receive natural-looking contours without a surgical procedure.

If your exercise or strength training routine isn’t enough to get the results you want, contact Après Plastic Surgery & Med Spa to begin body contouring without surgery. At your consultation, we will discuss which procedures would be best for you to achieve better muscle definition. While most patients get four CoolTone treatments over a period of two weeks, you may feel an improvement in your core strength after just one session.

CoolTone safety information 

CoolTone is a great way for individuals who are already in good shape to take their physique to the next level. Candidates for CoolTone treatment in Portland and the surrounding areas are in good health and will maintain their long-term results through a smart diet and exercise program. You may also want to speak with your physician about scheduling follow-up treatments to keep your new look.

The CoolTone device causes muscle contractions in the body, which results in improved muscle conditioning. Though the goal for most patients is to develop a stronger and more defined appearance, we want to keep our patients as safe as possible. For this reason, the CoolTone procedure should not be used on individuals with metal or electronic implants such as cardiac pacemakers or hearing devices, or in patients with seizure disorders like epilepsy. Our experienced physicians can determine if CoolTone is right for you based on your initial medical evaluation.

Common side effects of CoolTone include temporary muscle spasms and discomfort, redness in the treatment area, and tendon pain. CoolTone patients also experience some soreness in the treated muscles after each session. We usually compare the feeling to that of an extensive workout, and it will subside soon after your treatment. If you are interested in this body contouring procedure or have questions about the science behind it, we invite you to schedule a consultation to learn more.

Body contouring without surgery

CoolTone is a revolutionary system that stimulates the muscles with no incisions or lengthy downtime. If you are struggling to tone areas like the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs, CoolTone can give you more significant results than regular workouts. All you have to do is sit back and relax as the applicator delivers electromagnetic energy to layers of muscle tissue. One treatment session lasts about 30 – 45 minutes, so the procedure can easily fit into your schedule.
