What’s the Difference Between CoolSculpting and CoolTone?

Allergan is the manufacturer of two revolutionary devices: CoolSculpting and CoolTone. While both devices can improve your figure without needles, anesthesia, and a long recovery period, they work differently. While CoolSculpting targets fat cells, CoolTone concentrates on muscles. Let’s take a closer look at the difference between CoolSculpting and CoolTone.

CoolSculpting is a fat reduction treatment that can safely target fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise through controlled cooling. During a CoolSculpting treatment, one of our expert providers will freeze fat cells which will eventually die. Over time, your body will target these dead fat cells and process them out. You’ll be left with a beautiful, sculpted figure. In most cases, CoolSculpting treatments take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes to complete. 


CoolTone is a body sculpting treatment you can use to tone and tighten your body. It may be a great option if you don’t have hours upon hours to spend at the gym. A CoolTone treatment involves magnetic muscle stimulation, which penetrates deep into your muscle layers and induces contractions. This will allow your body to strengthen its muscle fibers so that you’re left with greater tone and definition. Most CoolTone treatments are 30-minutes long. 

Why Combine CoolSculpting with CoolTone

As you can see, CoolSculpting and CoolTone have different goals. While CoolSculpting can reduce stubborn fat in your abdomen, thighs, love handles, and other problem areas,  CoolTone can strengthen and tone your muscles. 

If you’re looking for dramatic, body-changing results, you should consider pairing both of these treatments. With this combo approach, you’ll look wonderful in your clothing and in a bathing suit.

Good Candidates for CoolSculpting and CoolTone

You may benefit from CoolSculpting and CoolTone at the same time if you’re at or near your goal weight yet find it difficult to get rid of stubborn fat bulges and build muscle. Keep in mind that these are not weight loss treatments so they won’t help you if your goal is to shed the unwanted pounds. Also, remember that you can receive CoolSculpting and CoolTone separately if you’re only interested in reducing stubborn fat or toning your muscles.
