When it comes to getting “summer ready,” treatments like CoolSculpting® Elite, CoolTone®, and Venus Legacy™ can help you achieve your desired sculpted look. Best of all? These treatments can be combined to maximize their results in a way that is not possible when either is used on its own. Here are a few things you should keep in mind when planning your body contouring journey.
How Does CoolSculpting Elite Work?
CoolSculpting Elite eliminates unwanted fat without surgery or downtime. It uses a process called cryolipolysis, which crystallizes fat cells in the treated area. Once frozen, these fat cells are permanently eliminated through your lymphatic system. This results in an average of 20-25% reduction in the treated areas, all without any downtime. This nonsurgical fat reduction treatment is FDA-cleared for 9 areas of the body: under the jawline, under the chin, the upper arms, back fat, bra fat, the flank area, the abdomen, the banana roll, and inner and outer thighs.
As soon as 6 to 8 weeks post-treatment, you will notice the treated areas appear leaner. Your body will continue to metabolize the treated fat cells for up to six months after treatment. The most noticeable results typically appear 2 to 3 months after your last session.
What Is CoolTone?
CoolTone helps tone and strengthen the muscles in your body. It works by a process called magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) to send electromagnetic energy into your body’s muscles, which causes involuntary contractions. The body then starts to strengthen the muscles underneath the treatment area. Over time, the muscles will become firmer, stronger, and more toned. CoolTone is primarily intended for the improvement and strengthening of the abdominal muscles as well as toning of the thighs and buttocks.
What Is Venus Legacy?
Venus Legacy™ uses radiofrequency (RF) to tighten the skin. This noninvasive technology causes a thermal reaction in the deeper layers of the skin. Heating the tissues encourages lymphatic drainage, stimulates collagen and elastin production, and helps shrink fat cells. Venus Legacy is an excellent way to tighten skin and smooth the look of cellulite. It is FDA-cleared for the face, neck, and body.
Can I Combine Treatments?
These three body contouring treatments work in different ways to target different patient concerns, but all together can create the optimal result. CoolSculpting Elite is a great option for slimming down “pinchable” areas of fat and should be done first before it is combined with another treatment. CoolTone can be completed on the same day. However, it is best done after a CoolSculpting Elite session, which can speed up the fat removal process.
Venus Legacy is a wonderful treatment to help break up all the frozen fat cells and promote lymphatic drainage after a CoolSculpting Elite treatment. It can also be used to tighten areas of skin from the CoolSculpting Elite process and reduce cellulite. We recommend it be done at least 4 weeks after your last CoolSculpting Elite session.
