CoolSculpt vs. CoolTone: Treatment Options for Your Summer Body

by | Jun 28, 2021 | Body Contouring

Summer is finally here, and everyone seems to be focusing on making up for all they missed last season when many beaches, water parks, and outdoor festivals were either closed or canceled. As you reconnect with friends and fun this summer, you may also be thinking about rediscovering your summer body. With the treatment options available to you right now, you won’t have to run to a gym to find it. At Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York, we offer both CoolSculpt and CoolTone to eliminate the fat and sculpt the muscle. But which treatment is right for you?

The team of board-certified dermatologists and plastic surgeons at our medical clinic offer a range of procedures to help you achieve the body contours you desire. In addition, we stay up-to-date on the latest body contouring technologies, including CoolSculpt Elite and CoolTone, so you can achieve the best results possible. We also offer innovative cellulite treatments to put the finishing touches on your beach body. So whether you’re looking to eliminate fat, tone muscle, or tackle cellulite, we can create a custom treatment plan for you.

CoolSculpting Elite for Fat Reduction

CoolSculpting Elite can help you achieve your summer-ready body by targeting specific areas that have become resistant to exercise and a healthy diet. It uses controlled cooling technology to target unwanted fat and freeze the fat cells, forcing your body to eliminate them naturally. In addition to its clinically proven effects, CoolSculpting Elite offers the following benefits:

 

  • No anesthesia, incisions, or downtime required.
  • No scarring
  • Lower risk for complications compared to surgery
  • Quick and simple procedure (treatments can take as little as 35 minutes)
  • Targeted fat reduction for a variety of treatment areas
  • Natural-looking, long-lasting results
  • More affordable than surgery

What to Expect from Your CoolSculpting Treatment

The CoolSculpting Elite procedure begins by positioning the applicators exactly where you need them. The correct placement of the applicators is critical to achieving the best results, so it is essential to work with CoolSculpting Elite experts to ensure an optimal outcome. In addition, the procedure is relatively comfortable, and patients can read, answer emails, or even nap during their session.

When Will I See Results?

You may start to see results in as few as three weeks after your CoolSculpting Elite procedure. Between months 3-4, you’ll likely see and feel the most dramatic results as the body continues flushing out the destroyed fat cells. Most patients see full results within six months, long-lasting as long as you maintain a healthy weight. You can choose to have a second session if you desire more fat loss.

Tone and Sculpt with CoolTone

CoolTone is different from CoolSculpting Elite because it focuses on enhancing muscle tone rather than eliminating fat. This procedure targets underlying muscles for a firmer, healthier aesthetic. In addition to taking your toning goals further (did you know that 30 minutes of CoolTone is equivalent to 20,000 sit-ups?) CoolTone provides the following advantages:

 

  • More powerful than other similar devices (50% more magnetic intensity)
  • Non-invasive (no incisions or anesthesia)
  • Targets specific areas of the body
  • Non-surgical alternative to procedures like a butt lift
  • No downtime required
  • Quick and easy procedure (30-60 minute treatment sessions)
  • Enhances your gym performance

What to Expect from Your CoolTone Treatment

Your CoolTone treatment should also be a comfortable experience. You will alternately feel a tapping sensation and a more intense vibration that causes your muscles to tense up. The device uses different settings, and we encourage you to communicate with your provider to achieve the most positive experience possible. After the treatment, you will feel like you’ve finished an intense workout. 

When Will You See Results

Most patients will see improvement immediately after treatment that will continue to improve for a few weeks. Multiple treatment sessions will produce more dramatic results. Results can be very long-lasting, particularly with regularly scheduled touch-ups.

The Finishing Touch: Non-Surgical Cellulite Treatments at Our Medical Clinic

You may also want to address your cellulite before showing off your summer body, and our board-certified dermatologists provide several treatment options for this: 

The breakthrough cellulite treatment Qwo® is the first injectable treatment approved by the FDA for treating cellulite. Laser Skin & Surgery Center of New York is one of the first medical clinics to offer this revolutionary treatment to our New York City patients. Qwo breaks down collagen buildup that creates the tightening under the skin of the buttocks, without the need for anesthetic or downtime afterward. As the fibrous bands are released, the skin becomes smoother on the surface to dramatically reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Another device that’s newer to the market is RESONIC, a Rapid Acoustic Pulse (RAP) device that uses a rapid pulse of shockwaves to break apart the fibrous septa bands beneath the skin that cause cellulite. We will soon be one of the few medical practices in the country to offer RESONIC.  Cellfina™ is a minimally-invasive, tried-and-true procedure our doctors use to target the fibrous bands under the dimpled areas of skin that cause cellulite. Releasing these bands reduces the appearance of cellulite. Thermage® CPT uses radiofrequency energy to smooth, tighten, and contour the skin, temporarily reducing cellulite’s appearance. It works by heating the dermal layers, resulting in collagen creation. The new collagen makes the skin look firmer and tighter, improving overall texture. 

Contour Your Body with Liposuction

If a one-and-done procedure is all you have time for before your summer plans, then liposuction might be a good option for you. Our board-certified plastic surgeons can remove stubborn fat from your thighs, knees, buttocks, waist, hips, abdomen, chin, cheeks, neck, and upper arms with this treatment. The results can be dramatic and long-lasting as long as you maintain a healthy weight after your procedure.
