Several types of non-surgical body contouring therapies reduce body fat and improve tone without the need for surgery. Two of the most popular are Coolsculpting® and CoolTone™. These rely on cooling and magnetic muscle stimulation technologies to reduce adiposity and create a more athletic look.

Types of Non-Surgical Body Contouring
Let’s take a look at these two non-surgical body contouring techniques in more detail.
Coolsculpting® involves cooling fat cells down until they become unviable. It works by placing folds of fat between applicators and lowering the temperature until cells crystallize and die. Once inactivated, the body clears them away over the following weeks and months.
The technique is popular because it selectively targets fat cells, leaving regular skin and muscle unharmed. It feels cool at first, but eventually, the skin goes numb, and skin sensation disappears during treatment.
Dr. Schalit and his team recommend the treatment for patients who need a little extra help eliminating fat that doesn’t respond to regular diet and exercise.
CoolTone™ uses magnetic muscle stimulation to exercise muscles under the skin, toning them up and reducing surrounding fat. CoolTone specialists apply a special device to areas of concern that cause muscle fibers to contract, simulating the effects of exercise. CoolTone™ is highly effective and can offer enhanced results above regular exercise because it activates a larger volume of muscle tissue.

Benefits of Non-Surgical Body Contouring
The benefits of non-surgical body contouring are profound:
Both CoolTone™ and Coolsculpting® let you avoid downtime and immediately get back to your regular schedule. You may feel slightly sore – as if you have been to the gym – but there is no need to manage wounds or spend time in the clinic (as there is with surgery).
Effective fat reduction
Non-surgical body contouring effectively reduces stubborn fat pockets that won’t respond to regular diet and exercise.
CoolTone™ sessions usually take around 30 minutes to complete. Coolsculpting® takes between 35 and 45 minutes, depending on the target area.
Who is a Candidate for Coolsculpting®?
Dr. Schalit recommends Coolsculpting® for patients with stubborn pockets of fat that won’t respond to regular diet and exercise. It is not a weight-loss treatment but a technique that helps to tone and contour the body.
For this reason, the best candidates for the therapy are people who are committed to healthy lifestyles and just looking for that final “kick” to complete their goals.
Coolsculpting® is not suitable for everyone. Patients with paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, cold agglutinin disease, and cryoglobulinemia should avoid the therapy. You should also inform Dr. Schalit of any pre-existing medical conditions, known sensitivities, or allergies before receiving treatment.
Who is a Candidate for CoolTone™?
Like Coolsculpting®, the best candidates for CoolTone™ are people already living a healthy lifestyle who need an extra push to get them over the finishing line. While the treatment isn’t a weight loss solution, it can help you tone up, increase muscle mass, and reduce fatty deposits under the skin.
I had an amazing experience with Dr. Schalit’s office and staff. My Coolsculpting treatment was better than expected and I am pleased with the results. His staff was knowledgeable and accommodating. Kim took care of all my questions and concerns and made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure.
