Many of us are grown adults, so pain isn’t something we’re scared of anymore. Or is it? There’s no doubt that you’ve been through some physical pain in your life, but that doesn’t mean you want more of it. Especially when you visit a cosmetic clinic or medical spa. You’re not a masochist; you want your time at the clinic to be as painless and comfortable as possible.
There are many options available for you when it comes to aesthetic sculpting and contouring for the body. You can choose from a variety of treatments that burn fat, tone muscles, lift up certain parts, but which of these produce the most results with the least pain. You want to know exactly what you’ll be feeling during Cooltone, Sculptra and Coolsculpting before and after the procedures themselves.
Let’s try and understand exactly what these are and what they can do.
There’s absolutely no shame in wanting to avoid physical pain while at a clinic. We already have a lot on our plates as it is and having to go through painful cosmetic procedures isn’t on most of our bucket lists.
What is something we’d be interested in doing, however, is losing excess fat in all those uncomfortable areas of the body. Feel like your thighs, hips, stomach, or even back have a little too much fat? It feels like it’s almost impossible to get rid of it, but with Coolsculpting it’s not.
With specialized cold metal pads which are placed on the body, Coolsculpting causes the fat cells to destroy themselves through a process called “apoptosis”. This requires no injections or incisions, making this treatment completely non-invasive. And you know what that means? No pain.
Well, in all fairness, you may feel some aching after the procedure, but it goes away on its own rather quickly. The procedure itself is a little uncomfortable at its worst and at its best, you can sit back and read a book while the Coolsculpting equipment does its thing. And as time goes by, you’ll notice that your body is getting more and more slim in all the right areas.
And within a few months, you’ll have a sculpted body that’s lost fat in all the right places.
Don’t be fooled by its name; this procedure has nothing to do with the previous. It also doesn’t work with fat. Instead, it works with muscles.
How does one go about getting firmer, more visible muscles? Obviously you can exercise, but unless you do very specific training programs, all that does is builds up bulk and just makes you look bigger. You want outlines, like a little six pack on your stomach, maybe those beautifully defined lines on the thighs and biceps, as well as those attractive back muscles.
Cooltone can help you in this regard. While you’re not going to make yourself physically stronger with Cooltone, you can accentuate your muscles if you’re after more aesthetic results, as opposed to strength building.
Normally, you’d have to do months of exercising and non-stop gym sessions. But with a few Cooltone treatments, your body will tone out the designated areas by itself, without having to step one foot into a gym. The procedure works thanks to special magnetic technology, which causes the muscles in any area of the body to contract in quick succession. So, imagine doing your normal reps, but at much faster speeds.
It’s a little shortcut you can take to reach some truly amazing results.
Ever wanted to be a little more curvy? Like toning the muscles, there are many specific kinds of exercises designed to bring out these curves. But, again like Cooltone, they take a long time and a lot of effort, both of which you may not be able to arrange.
Sculptra exists for a reason. It’s a special injection designed to be used in the area of the buttocks, where it can give it a better, more curvy shape. You’ve probably heard of dermal fillers, which lift various parts of the face to make it smoother and tighter. Sculptra works almost the same way, but it lifts and shapes the posterior instead.
When injected, the specialized gel tightens the butt in specific areas. Not only does it lift it up and makes it look curvy, but it also gives it a naturally rounded shape. No square posteriors here. Sculptra results look completely natural.
And while yes, it does involve injections, the treatment is barely considered painful. Special numbing cream is applied to the area to make sure patients don’t feel any stinging or tugging. This makes it a virtually painless procedure and a favorite among many clients all across the country.
Only a Few Among Many More
But remember that these are only a few of the many body contouring and sculpting treatments you can find on the market. They are available in lots of clinics all across the country, but if you happen to live in a big city like NYC, then you’re in real luck.
NYC alone is home to some of the country’s most trusted and professional cosmetic centers. Manhattan’s own Skinly Aesthetics has all three of these on their catalogue and proudly offers them to new and loyal patients alike. You can check out their website for anything from Coolsculpting before and after photos, to exactly how Cooltone works.
But even if you already have a trusted practitioner, you’re still in a lot of luck. Coolsculpting, Cooltone and Sculptra have stood the test of time and have shaped many bodies. They are cornerstones of any cosmetic center which performs body sculpting and contouring.
If you’ve ever considered making a few changes to how your body looks, but always found it inconvenient to go to the gym, these three should get the job done. So don’t be scared of pain, as there is none. You’ll just have to try it for yourself to find out.
