Non-surgical body contouring treatments, CoolTone® and CoolSculpting® Elite, have been popular choices for sculpting and toning the physique. While both treatments enhance body contours, they use distinct mechanisms and target different concerns.

At Freezeology in Tampa, FL, we specialize in CoolSculpting® Elite and CoolTone® and can let you know which treatment is right for you.

What is CoolTone®?

CoolTone is an FDA-cleared non-invasive body contouring treatment designed to strengthen, tone, and firm muscles. It uses magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) technology to induce involuntary muscle contractions, simulating the effects of an intense workout.

These contractions stimulate muscle fibers at a deep level, resulting in improved muscle tone and definition. CoolTone is typically used to enhance muscle definition in areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.

Understanding CoolSculpting® Elite

CoolSculpting Elite is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that targets stubborn pockets of fat through controlled cooling, also known as cryolipolysis. It works by selectively freezing fat cells, causing them to undergo a natural cell death without damaging surrounding tissues.

Over time, the body naturally eliminates the crystallized fat cells, resulting in a slimmer, more contoured appearance. CoolSculpting Elite can be used to reduce fat in various areas, including the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and under the chin.
