Can’t build muscles the traditional way? You are not alone! Without the proper know-how, weight training can be tedious, and it may not always help build strength in everyone. Bodies are all different, and they change over time. In many cases, those who used to build muscle with weights or exercise in their youth find it more challenging or nearly impossible to maintain in their older years.
Plus, it can require a considerable level of commitment and determination that many struggle to find. Muscles can represent a level of masculinity and strength that is coveted and appealing aesthetically. For those who struggle to obtain or keep muscle definition, this can be disheartening or stressful.
It can cause self-esteem issues and even cause some to avoid taking their shirt off because they are dissatisfied with their appearance. In some cases, muscles may even become lax and cause the skin to loosen or sag due to age and lack of collagen production. Thankfully, there are solutions and ways to enhance your appearance to achieve muscles and a more defined body contour. At the Bengtson Center, we offer innovative treatments to the Greater Grand Rapids area residents to help them look and feel more confident in their skin.
Is it Normal to Lose Muscle Definition?
Men can experience muscle loss for many reasons. If they regularly work out, for example, and stop maintaining their routine or don’t appropriately target their desired areas, they may lose muscle definition and strength.
Some may try to work out regularly but struggle to see a dramatic or noticeable improvement. Like weight fluctuations, other factors can cause the skin and muscles underneath to grow slack and lose elasticity. Many side effects of aging may also lead to changes in muscle definition.
CoolTone™ is a non-surgical body contouring treatment, which means it can be well-suited for many adults and can be an alternative to surgical enhancements.
The best candidates for CoolTone™ are those who struggle to develop muscles fully but are somewhat trim. Patients considering any type of body contour or enhancement procedure should be in a good state of mind and health, close to their ideal weight, and have minimal to moderate fat in the areas they want to treat.
The magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) technology behind CoolTone™ works to penetrate muscles using high-frequency electromagnetic energy.
This encourages involuntary contractions, and the muscles will be flexing rapidly and intensely, delivering a result similar to doing a crazy ab workout - without ever moving. CoolTone™ is versatile and can be applied to different areas such as the chest, arms, love handles, or buttocks to help achieve more chiseled abs or tone up a skinny lower body.
For those who want to see muscle definition on their body but cannot see or maintain results with weight training routines, CoolTone™ can help. It can help patients achieve toned, defined muscles in target areas without putting in any work at the gym!
CoolTone™ is an excellent treatment for patients who are looking to start building muscle and want to see results without having to commit time, money, and pain to regularly lifting weight and working out. CoolTone™ can deliver noticeably visible muscle definition by actually stimulating the muscles to strengthen the fibers and help them maintain their shape and contour. We offer CoolTone™ as a body contouring procedure for men at the Bengtson Center for Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery.Learn More
Compared to CoolTone™, traditional muscle building techniques cannot mimic the movements that the procedure creates in the tissues. Not only will you see more improved muscle tone and definition, patients often say they feel stronger and have more control over their muscles.
Each CoolTone™ session is painless, brief, no downtime is required. Patients can return to their daily activities, feeling like they just finished a refreshing workout! You can begin to see results after one session, but most patients get two or three to achieve the look they want. Results can last up to six months or longer when you follow healthy lifestyle habits.
The cost of CoolTone™ or other body contouring procedures in Grand Rapids may vary. At the Bengtson Center, patients can customize their treatments to hone in on their unique areas of concern and develop an individual plan to help correct and enhance their appearance. Patients can discuss paying solutions and financing options during their consultation.
