CoolTone vs. Emsculpt
Do you spend day after day in the gym, but lack the muscle definition you desire?
Are you looking for a way to get a more chiseled and toned look, without surgery, strict diets, or rigorous workouts?
If you answered yes, there are now two muscle toning treatments that can help. CoolTone and Emsculpt are both FDA-approved technologies aimed at improving muscle definition and tone, in women and men.
So, which one is right for you?
Continue reading for a comparison of CoolTone vs. Emsculpt, including one key difference between them.
How Does CoolTone Work?
CoolTone is a a new technology from Allergan, the company that also manufactures CoolSculpting, and is designed to strengthen, firm, and tone muscles.
It is entirely noninvasive and targets the muscle layer with Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS).
In doing so, CoolTone initiates involuntary muscle contractions that force muscle fibers to undergo intense remodeling and become thicker and stronger.
How Does Emsculpt Work?
Emsculpt is a nonsurgical procedure that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to stimulate supramaximal muscle contractions.
As a result of this activity, muscles adapt, grow stronger, and produce a more defined appearance.
At the same time, Emsculpt also destroys fat cells for a slimmer shape.
CoolTone vs. Emsculpt – Which One is Better?
When it comes to Emsculpt vs. CoolSculpting, there are a number of similarities between the two modalities.
They are both FDA-approved, nonsurgical body sculpting treatment designed to improve muscle tone in the abdomen, buttocks, thighs and arms.
Additionally, they are well-suited to women and men, take just 30 minutes per treatment, and require zero downtime.
With that being said, Emsculpt has already produced impressive results in a clinical setting as well as seven U.S.-based clinical trials. In fact, Emsculpt can achieve up to a 19 percent reduction in fat and up to a 16 percent increase in muscle mass.
On the other hand, CoolTone will not be available for treatment until later in 2019, and it remains to be seen how it will perform in a clinical setting.
