Dr. Jeffrey Hartog of The Bougainvillea Clinique in Winter Park, FL, is a professional in the area who is pleased to provide surgical and nonsurgical solutions for both the face and body at his cosmetic surgery and medical day spa. He may recommend to patients considering fat removal and body contouring to consider the benefits of two popular treatments in his office, including CoolTone® and CoolSculpting®.
CoolTone® vs. Coolsculpting®
As you consider your body contouring options, you may be wondering what the difference is between CoolTone® and CoolSculpting®. Both procedures use cooling technology to target and eliminate fat cells, but some key differences may make one treatment more ideal for you than the other.
CoolTone® works by using magnetic energy to stimulate and tone the muscles beneath the treatment area. This results in a visible increase in muscle definition and an overall reduction in circumference. The FDA has cleared the CoolTone® device for use on the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. It integrates Active Magnetic Pulse technology, also referred to as AMP, providing powerful muscle contractions in just one appointment, with cumulative results over time with several treatment sessions.
CoolSculpting®, on the other hand, uses a controlled cooling process to freeze and eliminate fat cells. This treatment may be used on multiple areas of the body, including the abdomen, love handles, thighs, arms, and back. Once the fat cells are effectively frozen with this device, they are eliminated by the body naturally. This process is medically known as cryolipolysis and is a reliable and effective way of treating unwanted fat in these common trouble areas. Results from CoolSculpting® can take up to several months to fully develop.

If you don’t mind waiting longer for results and want to target multiple areas of your body at once, CoolSculpting® could be a better option.
