Achieving good muscle tone can take months of hard work with no real guarantee of success. Maintaining that physique takes work and discipline alongside balanced nutrition and a healthy routine. Toned muscles offer more than just a beautiful silhouette. A well-toned abdomen improves your posture, reduces lower back pain, and improves mental health. Muscle toning also helps lower your risk of certain diseases.
Sometimes, you don’t have the time to achieve the results you are looking for. CoolTone in Tacoma may help you develop the muscle tone and silhouette you have been looking for. Reach out to our Med Spa team to learn more about this treatment and all your options.
CoolTone is a device that was developed by the makers of CoolSculpting. However, this device does not rely on cold to achieve muscle tone and body sculpting results. Instead, this FDA-approved device helps treat the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs by strengthening muscles using magnetic pulses.
The electromagnetic stimulation causes involuntary muscular contractions that feel like non-painful muscle spasms, causing the muscles to strengthen and become toned. Most people achieve the results they are looking for within four to eight treatments that generally take 30 minutes to complete.
There is a difference between toning muscle and building muscle. The CoolTone procedure helps tone your existing muscles but will not help you achieve larger muscles. The CoolTone process in Tacoma, Puyallup, and Federal Way helps to stimulate and work muscles you have without exercise, giving you better-toned abs and legs and achieving a non-surgical natural-looking butt lift.
After the initial four to eight treatments, most people require maintenance treatments, which are scheduled based on lifestyle routines and metabolic rate.
While everyone responds differently, most people find the results last roughly six months. If the muscles that were treated with CoolTone are not maintained, they will revert over time. However, maintaining muscle tone and achieving it requires different levels of intensity. Light exercise and muscle-toning workouts can help maintain your results.
It is important to remember that CoolTone is a body sculpting or body contouring process and is not intended for weight loss. Good candidates in Tacoma, Federal Way, and Puyallup for CoolTone are healthy men and women who have achieved or nearly achieved their target weight and want to improve muscle tone and strength in the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. The process is relatively simple and works well for those who are in reasonably good health but do not want to spend hours at the gym.
Several health conditions are contraindications for CoolTone. For example, if you have a metal or electronic implanted device near the target area, CoolTone is not the right treatment option because it uses electromagnetic pulses to trigger muscle contraction. People who have a disorder with active bleeding or have a seizure disorder are also not good candidates. The best way to determine if you are a candidate for CoolTone is to call our office for a consultation with our experienced team.
During your consultation, you should ask all the questions you need to feel comfortable with the procedure. You and our team will discuss the areas of the body you want to be treated and discuss your recommended course of treatment to achieve your goals.
During the CoolTone treatment in Tacoma, Federal Way, and Puyallup, applicators are placed over the muscles being treated. These applicators use electromagnetic stimulation to cause an involuntary contraction that can last for just a few seconds, and then there is a period of rest.
The device allows your practitioner to change the intensity level of the treatment depending on your current muscle tone and tolerance. The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes, and you might experience some muscle soreness for several hours, just as if you had done several hundred sit-ups at one time.
Over the coming weeks, you will notice the treatment area becomes more toned and firmer, and you will feel stronger. Just as when you tone your muscles in the gym, they can lose strength and tone over time if they are not maintained with exercise. You might also consider a maintenance treatment every several months.
Creating the sculpted and toned look you want does not have to take hours in the gym each week, and maintaining that look requires only light exercises and the occasional maintenance treatment with CoolTone in Tacoma. Call our office today to schedule your consultation to discuss your options and how CoolTone can help you achieve your goals.
