CoolTone® vs. Accufit™: Which is Better?

Non-invasive body sculpting comes in several forms. Some treatments melt fat cells by freezing, heating, or otherwise damaging them. Others use infrared or radiofrequency energy to smooth loose skin and make an area look firmer. But Accufit™ with Dr. Zena Gabriel at ZENA Medical tones and strengthens your muscles, giving you a more lean, sculpted body.

What is Accufit™ Non-Invasive Body Sculpting?

Accufit™ uses electrical energy to trigger muscle contractions, replicating the types of natural movements that build muscle when you work out. Like a HIIT workout, Accufit™ goes through rapid repetitions of twisting, holding, gripping, and tapping. Diodes are placed on the abdomen, waist, thighs, and arms to conduct electricity that stimulates muscle activity. This causes the muscle to build, burn fat in the area and get toned.

CoolTone® vs. Accufit™: Which is Better?

You might wonder how Accufit™ compares to other muscle-toning treatments like CoolTone®. CoolTone® uses magnetic energy that travels through the body in a non-specific way and triggers one repetitive muscle motion, like doing one direction sit-ups over and over again. Magnetic energy disperses widely when used, making it less efficient in triggering muscle contractions – because energy is lost and not targeted.

Accufit™ uses micro-pulsed direct electrical current that travels between diodes. This creates coordinated contractions of different muscle groups. It has three times more power than magnetic treatments like CoolTone®. This provides a much more powerful toning and sculpting effect. Magnetic energy causes contraction and release. But ACCUFIT causes muscles to twist, hold, grip and tap – it is multi-directional so it mimics real exercises. These anatomically realistic movements give you a better outcome with more definition and muscle tone. The amount of energy produced by competing systems at 100% capacity is only a third of what Accufit™ safely produces for more effective shaping. 

What are the Benefits of Accufit™?

Accufit™ treatment does not hurt and each treatment takes about 30 minutes. Dr. Zena and her team have created an optimal protocol and they recommend two sessions per week for a total of 6 sessions. Accufit™ does more than tone muscles. By stimulating the entire metabolic unit in the treated area, you can see overall slimming, shaping, and fat loss. Since Accufit™ is non-invasive, you can go back to your usual activities immediately after treatment. Your muscles may feel like they have had a good workout (slightly sore) but it doesn’t limit any outside exercise programs.

You will see noticeable decreases in size and better shape in the abdomen, buttocks, waist, and more. We also couple your treatments with weight loss counseling, medical weight loss programs and vitamin injections to boost metabolism. We know that body shaping is a holistic process – one procedure isn’t the answer to a healthy, toned body. A healthy diet, regular exercise and devices like ACCUFIT are all part of the total body solution.

Accufit™ stimulates muscle development so effectively and safely that it has been used to promote muscle strength in individuals with paralysis as well. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Accufit™?

Accufit™ is painless and safe for use on all skin types and tones. It makes an excellent option for anyone who wants to move beyond one-dimensional situp simulators and start getting a truly sculpted figure. We recommend that patients are within 15 pounds of their ideal body weight in order to get the optimal results. Accufit™ may not be safe for people with certain medical devices. We recommend a consultation with Dr. Zena or one of the trained professionals to determine what type of body sculpting will help you achieve the results you desire.
