For many men and women, a toned, well-sculpted body is an ideal beauty image, but it can be hard to achieve and maintain, especially when you lead a busy life and aren’t seeing results from exercise or healthy habits. Gaining muscles is not always an easy task, but the results can genuinely shape your overall appearance and body figure.

Weight lifting is often the go-to strategy when you are trying to enhance muscle definition, but this might not work for everyone, and for those who want softer muscles, this might not be the right approach. Thankfully, with our Grand Rapids muscle enhancement you can address all sorts of aesthetic concerns, including lack of muscle definition and strength in the body.

Men’s and women’s goals may also vary greatly, so finding a physician who has experience with all genders is important. Regardless of what your muscle goals are, Dr. Bengtson, Dr. Alfonso, and the team at the Bengtson Center can help you develop muscle definition through non-invasive treatment options. You can call our facility to learn more about enhancing your muscles without crazy exercises or gimmicks at the Bengtson Center for Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery.

Why Does Muscle Loss Occur?

The need for muscle enhancement can come from many places. For many patients, it is to help correct or reverse muscle loss that has occurred as a side effect of aging, hormonal changes, a decrease of physical activity, lifestyle changes, and more.

Patients who have had muscles in the past and love how it makes them look often opt to undergo cosmetic muscle enhancement to help them regain that appearance. Muscle loss can also occur due to genetics, illness, or medical conditions.

What Are the Benefits of Cosmetic Muscle Enhancement?

Cosmetic muscle enhancement is not just a treatment for those who have lost muscle mass or strength in their body. It can also offer significant benefits to those who are new to working out or have only barely stimulated their muscles to see how they can be defined.

At the Bengtson Center, we offer non-surgical body contouring procedures such as CoolTone, which has the added benefit of being minimally-invasive, virtually painless, and requires little to no recovery time after sessions. CoolTone is also FDA-approved and can be successful in helping build muscle in various areas, including the arms, thighs, abdomen, and buttocks.

CoolTone Muscle Enhancement

Have you always pictured yourself with toned arms, a sculpted back, and subtle but well-defined abs? Did you know this can be obtained without putting in countless hours of sweat and strain into the gym?

CoolTone is a non-surgical body contouring that uses magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) to penetrate muscles using high-frequency electromagnetic energy. This produces contractions that strengthen the muscle fibers and improves conditioning.

In many cases, our Grand Rapids muscle enhancement patients can achieve results that could not be replicated by traditional methods than the super physiological movements. Patients can see the improvements for up to six months before needing to plan follow-up appointments.

Ideal Candidates

Who Can Get Muscle Enhancement?

Ideal candidates for procedures like CoolTone and other body contouring procedures at Dr. Bengtson’s office include men and women in good general health. They have maintained a stable weight for some time. They should follow a healthy lifestyle, be non-smokers, and keep regular physical activity.

Patients who show the best results include people in good shape but have lax muscles in the target area. Muscle loss and loosening of skin and tissue are also a common side effect of aging. Naturally, this cannot be avoided, but patients can address this by combining muscle enhancement with other procedures. Talking to an experienced board-certified cosmetic surgeon is a great place to start so you can better understand what muscle enhancement is and what type of treatments are suitable for you.

How Much Does Grand Rapids Muscle Enhancement Cost?

Aesthetic enhancement procedures like muscle enhancement and other non-surgical body contouring procedures are not covered by health insurance, as they are considered elective treatments.

At the Bengtson Center, we accept popular payment methods and provide flexible financing options for patients who qualify. In determining final costs of muscle enhancement Grand Rapids patients should understand that pricing varies. The extent of muscle definition and the techniques used to achieve the desired results will play a part. You will always discuss your plan for cosmetic muscle treatment with your surgeon before starting any type of treatment.
