How to achieve a sculpted body with definition

Despite rigorous diet and exercise, it can be a challenge to achieve a sculpted body with definition on your own. The majority of the non-invasive body contouring procedures will help decrease subcutaneous adipose tissue and improve skin texture producing great cosmetic results. However, this approach does not address the muscles that lie beneath. The Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) technology, as used in CoolTone, uses electromagnetic therapy to generate supramaximal muscle contractions. These intense rapid muscular contractions are stronger than what an individual could ever achieve naturally even in the most strenuous exercise. The body responds to these intense contractions by toning, strengthening and enhanced definition.


How MMS Works

The human body has multiple layers of skeletal muscle serving different functions, making movements, stimulation and training very complex and difficult. Fortunately, with the MMS technology all of these muscles within the targeted area are stimulated for a time efficient stimulus for muscle enhancement. For example, while treating the abdomen with MMS the rectus abdominis, transverse abdomonis, external oblique, and internal oblique all contract simultaneously. The intense congruent contraction strengthens and develops the muscle fibers within the target zone simultaneously. This technology can be used on a variety of areas including the buttocks, abdomen and thighs.

Not only does this magnetic muscle stimulation create a chiseled appearance, it significantly improves athletic performance. Athletic teams are using this technology to complement traditional training practices to help their athletes achieve peak performance.


Is MMS Right for Me?

Patient selection is very important when performing these treatments. For optimal results, a reduction in adipose tissue in the area is beneficial. Unlike cryolipolysis, there is no fat cell injury or death with magnetic muscle stimulation. Therefore, a healthy diet and exercise are still important factors when trying to achieve optimal results. These sessions usually last about thirty minutes and are administered twice a week but the results can last up to at least six months. Additional treatments are recommended to enhance and maintain results.
