Cooltone Vs. Emsculpt | Which Muscle Building Treatment is Best?

With the emergence of a new era in body contouring, many individuals have pitted CoolTone vs. Emsculpt to discover which muscle building treatment is best. Read on to learn the similarities and differences of each treatment and gain the necessary information to help you decide which procedure is best suited for your needs.

The Similarities of Cooltone Vs. Emsculpt

Emsculpt comes from BTL Aesthetics, the makers of Emtone and Emsella. CoolTone comes from the makers of CoolSculpting, the popular fat freezing device. Both CoolTone and Emsculpt build, strengthen, and tone the muscles. They achieve this by stimulating powerful muscle contractions known as supramaximal contractions. Each treatment is 30-minutes, and each treatment induce 20,000 supramaximal contractions. Furthermore, whether you opt for CoolTone or Emsculpt, you will experience no pain during the procedure and require no downtime.

The Difference of Cooltone Vs. Emsculpt

The four major differences between CoolTone vs. Emsculpt are:

  • the time each treatment has been on the market
  • the specific energy used to stimulate contractions
  • the treatment areas
  • fat reduction

Time on the market: Emsculpt was the first FDA cleared device for building, strengthening, and toning muscles. CoolSculpting hit the market about two years after Emsculpt. Being around longer, Emsculpt has some advantages over CoolTone. For example, Emsculpt is backed by seven scientific studies that report awesome outcomes. To date, CoolTone lacks any studies to demonstrate its safety and efficacy.

The specific energy employed: Both treatments induce contractions in the muscle tissue. However, Emsculpt uses Highly Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy. In contrast, CoolTone employs Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS.) Theoretically, CoolTone claims to have 50% more magnetic intensity measured in tesla compared to Emsculpt. However, CoolTone has no independent studies to support this claim or show how the increased intensity produces more favorable results.

Treatment areas: Emsculpt is FDA cleared to treat more areas then CoolTone. Both treatments can strengthen the core, chisel the abs, and build up the thighs and upper legs. However, Emsculpt can also treat the upper arms for stronger biceps and triceps.

Fat reduction: Emsculpt is shown to both reduce fat and strengthen muscle. CoolTone only claims to enhance muscle.
