4 Reasons Why You Need CoolTone in Your Life

It’s time to get your dream body!

You may have heard of CoolSculpting, the revolutionary device by Allergan that freezes and eliminates fat. But there’s a new addition to the body contouring profile called CoolToneCoolTone is Allergan’s latest device that is FDA-cleared to strengthen and tone areas on your body, including your stomach, butt, and thighs — looking to get toned with no downtime or surgery? CoolTone may be the answer for you, read on to find out why YOU need this device in your life. 

Non-Invasive

    • A lot of people think the only way to sculpt your body is by going under the knife. However, with CoolTone you can now sculpt and tone your ideal body in as little as 30 minutes without having any surgery.
    • The CoolTone device uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) to induce involuntary muscle contractions resulting in a more toned and defined appearance. 
    • The treatment is also pain-free and targets only the muscle layers as it penetrates through the skin and fat layers. 
    • Because this treatment is 100% non-invasive and requires no downtime, you’re free to get right back to your usual activities.

FDA-Approved

    • Allergan has been a trusted world leader in medical aesthetics for years. They are continuously innovating and enabling people to live healthier and longer lives. 
    • Allergan continues to meet the needs of patients seeking non-invasive treatments. When they first came out with CoolSculpting, the body-contouring world was changed forever. Now with CoolTone, patients can take their bodies further. 
    • In June of 2019, the CoolTone device was officially FDA-approved to strengthen, tone, and firm the stomach, butt, and thighs. 
    • This device is safe, and as mentioned previously, painless! Individuals may experience mild soreness the day following (similar to an ab workout), but this is normal and to be expected. 

Effective

    • Everything you’ve heard is great, but you’re probably wondering how effective this treatment is and why you can’t just go to the gym to gain these muscles.
    • The CoolTone device produces supramaximal contractions, meaning that all of the muscle fibers are working at a level significantly higher than one could ever achieve on their own. 
    • The CoolTone device has also been shown to deliver up to 50% more magnetic intensity (1.35 T versus 0.9 T) than it’s leading competitor. 
    • When one decides to sculpt their body with CoolTone, they will notice a definition of muscle that they’d never imagined was possible.

The Non-Invasive Mommy Makeover

Getting Back to Your Pre-Baby Body

Becoming a mother is one of the most selfless gestures a woman makes. There is nothing better than looking into your beautiful baby’s eyes and seeing nothing but love. However, childbirth and pregnancy can take a significant toll on the body. Many women find it challenging to get back to their pre-baby body and don’t have the time or financial capabilities to go through extensive surgeries. Women are turning to non-invasive treatments to get rid of excess fat, sagging skin, stretch marks, and everything else that results from pregnancy. Keep reading to learn more about the ‘Mommy Makeover.’

Losing the Fat

  • After having children, many women notice they have excess fat in places they didn’t pre-baby. Despite eating healthier and exercising daily, the weight doesn’t seem to come off like it used to. Luckily, the FDA-approved procedure, CoolSculpting, eliminates unwanted excess fat. 
  • CoolSculpting utilizes cooling technology to freeze fat cells while leaving the skin and surrounding tissue unharmed. 
  • CoolSculpting is a fantastic treatment for new mothers because, along with it being non-invasive, there is no downtime. You can get right back to your new bundle of joy. 
  • If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, contact BodySquad at (561)-903-4945 or visit www.thebodysquad.com.

Treat Torn Muscles

  • When women become pregnant, the muscles of the abdomen stretch and become weak. Some women may develop diastasis recti, which occurs when the large abdominal muscles separate, making it look like they are still pregnant. 
  • However, with the new revolutionary FDA-approved device, CoolTone, women can strengthen those abdominal muscles, getting back to their pre-baby body. 
  • The CoolTone device uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) technology to penetrate through the skin and fat layers and target only the muscle layer, inducing involuntary muscle contractions. 
  • CoolTone is an excellent option for women who have developed diastasis recti or women who want to improve the appearance of the abdomen. 
  • CoolTone is the next evolution in body contouring, only offered to a select few of practices nationwide. Luckily, BodySquad is one of the few practices to receive this device! So what are you waiting for, come on in to see the magic for yourself!

Getting Rid of Loose Skin

  • It can be discouraging to look down and see sagging skin on your belly post-pregnancy. However, you’re not alone, loose skin after pregnancy is a challenge for many new moms. 
  • It can be hard to get rid of loose skin all on your own but with the help of ThermiSmooth, you’ll be back to your pre-baby body in no time. 
  • ThermiSmooth is a non-invasive device that utilizes radiofrequency energy to gently heat the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen as well as remodel existing collagen.
  • Collagen helps to strengthen and tighten the skin and to make it more elastic. The new collagen will prompt your skin to “shrink” immediately. 
  • If you are someone that suffers from loose or sagging skin, ThermiSmooth can be a great option for you! Visit Allenby Cosmetic Dermatology to learn more about this incredible device.

Tightening ‘Things’ Up Down There

  • Although common in women who have gone through childbirth, talking about lax vaginal tissue and weakened muscles can be an uncomfortable topic. 
  • However, these vaginal issues, such as feelings of looseness, urinary incontinence, dryness, and others, can have a negative impact on a women’s quality of life.  
  • Women may also be unaware of the available treatments for these issues and think the only solution is through surgical procedures. However, ThermiVa is a non-surgical way to safely and effectively rejuvenate the vaginal area. 
  • ThermiVa uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat the vaginal tissues and stimulate the tissue-renewal process and the production of collagen, which tightens and strengthens the muscles. 
  • ThermiVa does not require any downtime and is pain-free; most patients will feel and see a noticeable difference after just one session. 
  • Cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Janet Allenby is an excellent doctor that will provide you with compassion, care, and will take time to listen to your issues. She can give you the results you need to restore comfort to your body!

After giving birth to your beautiful new baby, most of your time will be devoted to them. It can be incredibly hard to find time to take care of yourself but these non-invasive treatments provide you a way to get back to your pre-baby body in just a short amount of time!

Whether you had your baby 6 months ago or 16 years ago, these tips and treatments can be helpful to any mother looking to get back to her pre-body weight! If you’d like more information on any of the treatments, provide your information below!

What’s the Difference Between Fat Loss and Weight Loss?

Fat Loss vs. Weight Loss – Yes, There is a Difference!

When trying to slim down, many people track their progress by stepping on the scale. Maybe you were happy by the low number you saw or suddenly became depressed because the number was higher than usual. We’ve all been there at some point, so don’t beat yourself up about it. However, stepping on the scale can be detrimental to your goal. The number on the scale doesn’t tell you much about your health; all it tells you is your relationship with gravity. There is a vast difference between weight loss (to which most people look at) and fat loss, read on to learn why you should be more focused on fat loss than weight loss. 

What is Weight Loss?

  • Weight loss is a decrease in one’s overall body weight, which can include muscle, fat, and water. All in all, weight loss is simply a loss of body weight. 
  • When you lose weight, you are losing more than just fat; you are losing lean body mass and body water. When you only focus on losing weight, you do not get to control how much of each you lose, which can be detrimental. For example, when you lose lean body mass, it directly influences the size of your basal metabolic rate, AKA, your metabolism. 

What is Fat Loss?

  • Fat loss, on the other hand, is a reduction of solely body fat. Most people strive to reduce body fat. 
  • It is important to note that there are two different types of fat in the body. 
    • First, there is essential body fat, which we as humans need. Essential body fat is stored in small amounts in the body’s organs, muscles, bone marrow, and central nervous system. This fat is necessary for good health and to keep the body functioning efficiently. 
    • Second, there is non-essential body fat, (also called excess body fat), which is fat in the body that we do not need. This fat is stored in the adipose tissue, found under the skin, in small amounts in the muscle, and body cavity. Non-essential body fat is the fat we want to lose during fat loss. 

Does Muscle Weigh More Than Fat?

  • It is important to note that muscle has a much higher density than fat, which means that muscle takes up less volume than an equal mass of fat. And this explains why you’re getting slimmer but not dropping in weight (another reason to nix the scale).
  • You’ve probably heard that a pound of muscle weighs more than a pound of fat, but this is false because a pound is a pound. However, a pound of fat takes up four times the space of muscle tissue, which goes back to the notion that you can look and feel slimmer even though your weight remains the same. 
  • Two people may weigh the same but can look very different. For example, Person 1 may have a high percentage of fat, and Person 2 may have a high percentage of muscle. Twenty pounds of fat is going to give Person 1 a softer look while twenty pounds of muscle is going to give Person 2 a more firm and sculpted look. 

The Impact of Too Much Fat on the Body:

  • Research shows that having too much fat, particularly fat around your waist, can raise your risk of serious illness. Furthermore, people with a higher percentage of body fat have a higher overall death rate, regardless of their weight or BMI. 
  • However, if this sounds familiar to you, you’re not alone. Two-thirds of all Americans are overweight, and roughly one-third are obese, creating an unhealthy epidemic in our country.
  • When you carry too much fat, the heart is the most obvious victim. Cholesterol builds up, blood pressure rises, and arteries get clogged. Then, blood loses its ability to clot, which puts people at an increased risk of having a stroke. 
  • Too much fat also triggers diabetes; when there is excess fat in the body, insulin (a hormone in the body) is affected, which can lead to heart disease.
  • Excess fat can increase your risk of many horrible illnesses. Even people that have a low body weight but a poor muscle-to-fat ratio are at risk for developing obesity-related conditions. Again, this is why it is super important to not just focus on weight loss but instead fat loss.

Best Ways to Lose Fat:

  • By now, you may be wondering how to focus on just losing fat. It’s important to note that losing fat is much more specific than losing weight. Your body needs fat, it is crucial for health and longevity and protects your body against starvation when you can’t access food. However, as they say, it’s possible to have too much of a good thing. So excess fat can be detrimental to your overall health, for the reasons stated above. 
  • We have provided what we think are the best ways to go about losing fat vs. losing weight. 
  1. Healthy eating
    • Many people think that food is the enemy in the battle against fat. However, many nutritionists say, some foods increase your metabolism and boost the body’s ability to burn fat. So instead of focusing on the number of calories you’re consuming, it will be more beneficial to focus on the quality of foods your consuming.
    • Your diet should include foods such as:
      • Avocados – although high in fat, it is considered a “healthy fat” and will keep you full, so you are less likely to snack on processed foods later. 
      • Salmon – This fish is packed with more omega-3 fatty acids than any other food and is also low-glycemic, preventing insulin spikes and fat storage around the mid-section. 
      • Nuts – high in protein, low in simple carbs, and rich in healthy fats, nuts stimulate your body’s ability to burn excess fat.
      • Eggs – Studies show that egg-based breakfasts have been proven to reduce hunger and promote feelings of fullness.
      • Leafy Greens – Kale, swiss chard, spinach, and a few others are loaded with fiber and will aid in the process of fat loss. 
    • The foods mentioned are just a few of the many foods that will help in the process of fat loss. Including these foods in your diet will have a significant effect on your overall health.

      .

  2.  High resistance workout
    • Fat loss cannot be achieved by diet alone. A high resistance workout will help you gain lean muscle mass, which will increase your metabolism and lead to fat loss.
    • It is essential to switch up the intensity of your workout and not to overdo it every single day. Aim to work out 3-4 times a week, with a mixture of weight training and cardio.
    • It is essential to build and maintain muscle so that our body can burn fat. 
  3. CoolSculpting 
  • CoolSculpting, or cryolipolysis, is FDA-approved to eliminate unwanted fat on the body. 
  • CoolSculpting is 100% non-invasive and works by using freezing temperatures to break down fat cells and ultimately get rid of them. It is important to note that the cold temperature does not damage other cells in the way it does fat cells. 
  • CoolSculpting will not aid in weight loss but rather fat loss. This procedure helps sculpt the body in certain areas. Individuals will find that their clothes fit better and look better.  
  • This procedure is perfect for individuals looking to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that they otherwise cannot with diet and exercise alone.

Why CoolSculpting Works

Why CoolSculpting Works

Freezing fat without surgery or downtime? It sounds too good to be true. However, there is science backing up the revolutionary non-invasive treatment called CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting has become one of the most popular bodysculpting procedures in the cosmetic world, and we’re here to break down the science behind it.

How Popsicles Led to the Discovery of CoolSculpting:
  • Believe it or not, the science of cryolipolysis (A.K.A CoolSculpting) came about after children who ate popsicles formed dimples on their cheeks. 
  • Two scientists at Harvard University, Dr. Rox Anderson and Dr. Dieter Mansetin were very interested in finding out what caused this. They discovered that the cold temperates from the popsicles were eliminating small pockets of fat within children’s’ faces. 
  • From this discovery, the two doctors concluded that fat cells could be targeted with freezing temperatures to induce lipolysis, which is the break down of fat cells.

Behind the Technology:

  • Fat cells are much more sensitive to cold temperatures than surrounding tissue. This is why the temperature at which the cooling takes place is key to the technology. 
  • The device utilizes controlled cooling, cryolipolysis to drop the temperature of the skin down to the point where fat cells become eliminated. 
  • The surface of the skin, as well as the surrounding tissue, is not affected or harmed in any way. This is due to the exact precision of the technology.

Permanent Reduction of Fat Cells:

    • When you diet and exercise, your fat cells shrink, and when you gain weight, they become enlarged. However, with CoolSculpting, the fat cells are eliminated, meaning that they cannot return or expand with weight gain.  
    • Once the Fat Cells are frozen, they are gone forever and gradually get cleaned out of the fat layer through your body’s immune cells. The liver metabolizes the cells and then excretes them from the body, leaving you with an overall slimmer physique. 
    • The fat cells leave the body for 3-4 months, and you will begin to notice the treated area becoming smoother and tighter.
    • With just one CoolSculpting treatment, you can expect to see up to a 25% reduction in fat. 

There have been thousands of clinical studies as well as hundreds of research articles published that confirm the science and technology behind CoolSculpting to be safe and effective.
