Build Muscle for Improved Abdominal Tone and More in Milwaukee

Sit-ups, squats, and other muscle-building exercises are effective, but sometimes they can only take you so far. With CoolTone at Milwaukee’s ReFresh Aesthetic Center, women and men seeking to further tone their abdomen, buttocks, and thighs can enjoy a firmer feel and improved definition without any surgery or incisions or spending hours at the gym. CoolTone is an advanced, FDA-cleared technology from Allergan Medical, the makers of fat-reducing CoolSculpting®.

Why is It Difficult to Build Muscle?

Weight loss on its own can’t always get you the body type you want. Firm muscles in the “right” areas look great in clothes, fill out your physique, and help to make your body shape appear more balanced. However, it’s challenging for many people to build muscle mass on their own, especially on areas such as the lower abdomen and obliques. Even after constantly working out, there’s no guarantee that a given person will be able to attain firm thighs, a perky butt, and a flat, chiselled stomach.

Some people simply get muscle definition more easily than others because of genetics and the percentage of body fat they have. There’s not much that patients who naturally have shorter muscle fibers or a larger amount of body fat can do to make their muscles pop out. That’s why patients use magnetic muscle stimulation with CoolTone to finally get the physique they’ve always desired.

What is Recovery After CoolTone Like?

There’s no downtime required after a CoolTone® session, so patients can return to their usual everyday activities. That said, patients should expect to experience some minor, temporary side effects such as mild muscle pain or cramping, tingling, redness, or swelling following the session. It may feel similar to how you would feel after an intense workout.

Patients typically require four to six CoolTone® sessions spaced several days apart, followed by designated maintenance sessions to achieve and maintain optimal results. The effects progressively improve after each session.

The results can be long lasting, if patients exercise regularly and maintain a healthy lifestyle along with ongoing sessions recommended by the provider. Patients typically notice that they feel stronger after each session, but it may take anywhere from three to six weeks to see results, and full muscle building and toning takes place over a period of two to three months.

Other Body Contouring Options Aside from CoolTone

CoolTone® is the ideal tool for sculpting muscles, but when it comes to getting rid of unwanted fat from various areas on the body, the team at ReFresh Aesthetic Centerrecommends CoolSculpting®. This non-invasive fat freezing technique minimizes pockets of excess fat on areas such as the upper arms, belly, thighs, and flanks by cooling fat cells to a temperature that causes them to be crystallized, then gradually metabolized and flushed from the body, leaving behind sleeker, more defined body contours. This fat-reduction process is complementary to CoolTone®, and the two treatments are often used in combination with each other.

For patients who simply want to reduce double chin fat, Kybella® is an injectable that dissolves fat around the submental area to improve jawline definition and more.
