Achieving a truly toned physique often takes more than diet and exercise. In fact, many athletic women and men struggle to get sculpted six-packs or firm, lifted buttocks and are looking for a better way to reach their body goals.
So, how can patients choose between the two body contouring treatments? Continue reading as we compare Emsculpt vs. CoolTone and discuss their similarities and differences.
How Does Emsculpt Work?
Emsculpt is an FDA-approved body contouring treatment that delivers high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to burn fat and build muscle.
During treatment, the paddle-shaped Emsculpt applicator induces 20,000 suprmaximal muscle contractions that force muscle fibers to remodel and thicken.
How Does CoolTone Work?
CoolTone is an FDA-approved noninvasive treatment that builds, strengthens, and firms muscles in the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.
It uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS), which penetrates through skin and fat layers and stimulates a series of involuntary muscle contractions.
These contractions are far more powerful than what can be achieved with any sort of physical activity and produce muscle growth, definition, and toning.
Emsculpt vs. CoolTone – Which One is Better?
Women and men interested in getting a chiseled abdomen, firmer buttocks, or sleeker thighs may be comparing Emsculpt vs. CoolTone and wondering which option is better.
While both devices are FDA-approved, nonsurgical, painless, and zero-downtime, Emsculpt is often preferred by patients and providers alike.
That’s because the innovative modality burns fat as well as builds muscle, while CoolTone only targets muscles.
What’s more, Emsculpt was the first noninvasive treatment for muscle toning and has a proven track record in a clinical setting (i.e. on actual patients).
On the other hand, CoolTone made its way into dermatologist and plastic surgeon’s offices at the beginning of 2020 and its ability to produce desired outcomes and a high level of patient satisfaction remains to be seen.
