The New Year usually comes with a lot of resolutions. Once the clock strikes midnight and the New Year’s party stops, we all start going through the checklists. Whether it involves eating healthier, gaining more muscle, or losing inches from our waist, we all want to follow through with that list.

The problem is that many individuals don’t manage to stick to their resolutions, with 43 percent quitting in as little as a month. The effort and dedication required for sculpting your body are often too much, as you need to follow a strict regimen and workout routine. Also, your body might not always be “cooperating,” which can be disheartening.

However, treatments like CoolSculpting® Elite and CoolTone™ can help you stick to your resolutions. In this article, you will learn why these treatments represent such a good option to bring the new you forward.

What Is CoolSculpting® Elite?

CoolSculpting® Elite is a treatment that relies on cryolipolysis to deliver controlled cooling to a specific area. Fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures, which is why the cooling process can damage them from within without harming the skin. And like with every dead or damaged cell, your immune system will work to flush it out.

The effect of CoolSculpting® is gradual, as the elimination of the fat cells can take weeks or even months to finalize. However, the treatment can reduce up to 25 percent of the targeted fat. With regular treatment, you should be able to see impressive results.

What Is CoolTone™?

While CoolTone™ shares the “cool” word of its cousin CoolSculpting® in its name, the treatment does not rely on cryolipolysis for its effect. Instead, the base treatment it uses is that of magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS). This causes involuntary muscle contractions that strengthen the fibers, offering a more toned appearance to your muscles.

The action of CoolTone™ can also reduce some of the subcutaneous fat, but its purpose is to strengthen your muscles. This is why it is recommended to have the CoolSculpting® Elite treatment first to burn (or, well, freeze) off fat, then you can follow up with CoolTone™ to tone your body.

What Are the Benefits of the Treatments?

Here are some of the benefits you can get with the CoolSculpting® Elite and CoolTone™ treatments:

1. Efficient Targeted Body Sculpting

Sometimes, despite your efforts and hours at the gym, you may have difficulties getting rid of stubborn pockets of fat. This may include your love handles, your chin fat, or that stubborn area on your stomach that just refuses to cooperate. CoolSculpting® Elite and CoolTone™ target those specific stubborn areas so that you can enjoy a perfectly sculpted body.

2. Long-Lasting Effects

CoolSculpting® Elite has the potential to be permanent, as the same fat cells will not return once they have been eliminated. CoolTone™ can last from three to six months, after which your muscles may start to weaken naturally (unless you exercise or go for maintenance appointments). The effects should last long enough for you to enjoy your summer days with a sculpted body at the beach.

3. Little Discomfort and Side Effects

Very often, fat reduction procedures can lead to a lot of discomfort or potential downtime. Both CoolSculpting® Elite and CoolTone™ are non-invasive, which means the side effects are minimal. At most, you may notice some temporary redness and a few sore muscles.

The Bottom Line

Both CoolSculpting® Elite and CoolTone™ can help you obtain that sculpted body you have always dreamed of. Thanks to their fat-burning and muscle-toning properties, you can get your body toned without having to spend endless hours at the gym.
