Many people interested in achieving a tighter, firmer body seek out fat removal procedures such as liposuction or CoolSculpting. While these treatments can help provide valuable body sculpting benefits, they don’t address an important aspect of improving your figure – muscle toning. The Larrabee Center for Facial Plastic Surgery is proud to be the first practice in the Seattle area to offer CoolTone, an innovative new treatment that improves muscle tone to help you achieve your desired figure.
How Does CoolTone Work?
CoolTone is a nonsurgical procedure that uses magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) to trigger rapid muscle contractions that strengthen muscle fibers. The electrical current administered during your treatment will penetrate deep into your muscles, providing maximum benefit.
Roughly 25,000 muscle contractions are triggered during a 30-45 minute CoolTone treatment, which is significantly higher than the number experienced during an intense exercise session. CoolTone improves your muscle tone in a three-step process:
- MMS technology penetrates through the layers of skin and fat in order to stimulate rapid contractions in your muscles
- These contractions serve to strengthen muscle fibers for improved muscle tone and conditioning
- You experience increased muscle mass and a firmer, more defined figure in the treatment area
What Areas Are Treated by CoolTone?
Dr. Larrabee can use CoolTone to improve your muscle tone in the following regions:
In addition, ideal candidates should be in good health, exercise on a regular basis and have a low body fat percentage. CoolTone isn’t a tool for weight loss. Individuals who get the best results are physically fit and near their ideal weight.
Are CoolTone Results Permanent?
You’ll start to experience initial results right away, and your muscle tone will keep improving over the next few weeks. As long as you eat a balanced diet and continue to live an active lifestyle, your results should be permanent.
Dr. Larrabee can combine CoolTone with CoolSculpting for enhanced results. The CoolSculpting procedure will eliminate excess fat in the target area, and the CoolTone will help build muscle mass that will provide even greater tone and definition to your figure.
