The CoolTone Experience

As non-invasive procedures rise in popularity, we are adding more to our menu of services. One of our favorite non-invasive treatments is CoolTone by Cool Sculpting. Although this procedure is called “CoolTone,” it has nothing to do with freezing fat cells. Instead, it uses magnetic force to stimulate involuntary muscle contraction, which results in a tighter and more toned appearance. One session of CoolTone has been compared to doing 20,000 – 30,000 sit-ups in 30 minutes, all while laying down. Sound too good to be true? Don’t take our word for it!

Meet Jenny Lane, owner of Jennylaneyoga.com, an online yoga studio that provides on-demand yoga classes both in-person and online. She is a mother, a healer, and an entrepreneur. Jenny’s business is fitness and wellness, so she exercises consistently and eats well, but still, she wasn’t satisfied with the definition in her abdomen despite hours of core workouts. Then, she found CoolTone at Embody MedSpa and all of that changed.

Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m Jenny Lane. I own jennylaneyoga.com, which provides on-demand yoga classes, yoga teacher training, and crystal healer courses. I am a single mother to a wonderful little boy, and I love the beach.

Q:  How did you hear of Cooltone?

A friend of mine suggested it to me. She had a very successful experience at Embody and explained that CoolTone is a non-invasive process that triggers the same muscle-building contractions that we create whenever we exercise. She said for her, the result was a stronger, more defined abdomen.

Q: In the end, what made you decide to move forward with Cooltone

As someone who tries to live as authentically and honestly as possible, it seemed as though Cooltone was a way to try a new treatment without losing sight of my values. This treatment is non-invasive, which is important to me, and I liked that it was essentially a compliment to my established fitness routine.

Q: Tell us about the experience at Embody MedSpa.

Both Sharon and Stacy are incredible! They made me feel welcome right away. The environment was clean, open and I felt safe the entire time. In the beginning, we chatted a lot to build a connection as the treatment level slowly intensified. As the treatments went on, I became so comfortable that I used my appointment as an opportunity to read in silence for a half-hour which, as a single parent, is a rare treat!

Q: Was it painful? What did it feel like? 

It was not painful at all. It felt like a contraction, but not an intense pregnancy contraction – more like someone was helping you squeeze your muscles tightly as possible. It’s a strange sensation, but not in any way painful.

Q: How many sessions did you have?

I had 6. Two sessions a week for 3 weeks.

Q: Describe your results.

I could see a difference after every session. My abdomen feels and looks so much tighter. The photos truly speak for themselves!

Q: How did CoolTone make you feel?

Amazing. I have always worn a bikini, but after becoming a mom, I was a bit body-conscious. I have been working for years on self-love and yoga; I genuinely feel confident almost always. This treatment simply added a little boost to that!

Q: Would you recommend it to a friend?

I absolutely would! In fact, I want to go back for my glutes! The process was so simple, and the aestheticians were knowledgeable and kind. The results are incredible. I would rate Embody MedSpa a 10 out of 10!!

Use It Or Lose It!

Did you know that the average person loses 3%-5% muscle mass per decade after the age of 30? And males will lose 30% in their lifetime? It’s a condition called sarcopenia and it affects both inactive and active men and women. This should concern you because less muscle leads to increased weakness, decreased mobility, decreased balance, and an Sarcopeniaincrease in falls and injuries as we age.

But there are ways to prevent sarcopenia from happening or at least slow it down. The first is through strength training or Progressive Resistance Training (PRT). This involves using weights or bodyweight exercises that challenge the body and absolutely essential for building muscle and getting stronger. The other way to stave off muscle loss as we age is by eating adequate amounts of lean protein as part of an overall healthy diet. Protein is the building block of muscles, helps to increase muscle mass, bone mass, fat loss, and reduce muscle loss.

What else can you do? Here at Embody we also offer a procedure from the brilliant scientists who brought you Coolsculpting called CoolTone. CoolTone is FDA cleared to strengthen, tone, and firm the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Using magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS), CoolTone builds muscle by recruiting more muscle fibers and generating stronger contractions than you could ever do on your own. It’s noninvasive, safe, easy and effective. CoolTone is the perfect complement to your fitness and nutrition program.

What Is CoolSculpting?

When you first hear about CoolSculpting, it sounds too good to be true. A painless procedure that permanently gets rid of fat in all those stubborn areas in 1-2 treatments? No way. I know there’s doubt in people’s minds because I’m the biggest skeptic out there. But guess what? It works!

Freeze Away Fat?

So let’s talk about how this innovative, non-invasive procedure works. CoolSculpting works by delivering controlled cooling to your fat cells causing them to freeze and die, a process known as cryolipolysis. Your body then naturally eliminates these dead fat cells over time, leaving you feeling more comfortable in your clothes and confident in your appearance.

Because fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other cells within the body, we can use CoolSculpting to target those stubborn bulges without harming other tissue. 25% of the fat cells in the treated area eliminated with each treatment – permanently! The whole process is easy, painless, and effective.

In Search of the Perfect Brow

Perfect eyebrows have become Perfect EyebrowsTHE hottest beauty trend since teeth whitening. And it’s no wonder – they frame the face and have a way of giving that polished look to your overall appearance. But what if you weren’t blessed with naturally full and perfectly shaped arches??

Microblading:

A new form of semi-permanent makeup will turn even the most pathetic brows into gorgeous works of art, whether you get professional microblading in Hull or anywhere else in the world. Also known as eyebrow embroidery and feathering, this procedure is used to reconstruct lost eyebrows, re-build thin brows, or just enhance existing brows. The best part? It looks completely natural and lasts up to 18 months!

Unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, microblading uses individual strokes to create realistic-looking “hairs”, as opposed to blocks of color. It’s become popular all over the world, with a lot of celebrities sampling some of the best Microblading London has to offer.

You can choose to do it yourself by getting something like Girlz Ink microblading supplies online, but by leaving it to the professionals, our highly skilled and certified microblading technicians carefully map out the perfect eyebrow shape. You can customize the color using only the finest non-toxic, stable, insoluble, and antiseptic pigments. A non-motorized tool called a microblade scratch the outer layer of the skin, allows these specially developed pigments to absorbed. The whole process takes about 2.5-3 hours and voila! Realistic, flawless brows that won’t wash off or fade away.

While microblading may not be for everyone, it is a truly amazing breakthrough in the cosmetic industry. So maybe you’re sick of filling in your wispy brows or tired of drawing on new ones each morning. Or maybe you just want your arches to be the envy of all who see them. Whatever the reason, microblading might just be the treatment you’ve been searching for.

Is Mineral Makeup Really Worth It?

There has been a lot of buzz around mineral makeup in the beauty and skincare industry for the past decade with more and more companies developing their own brands or improving what they already have. You can find mineral makeup in departments stores both physically and online (and, thanks to places like this site, you may even be able to save money when purchasing it). But what exactly is mineral makeup?

In the most basicMineral Makeup terms, mineral makeup refers to cosmetics that do not contain chemicals, dyes, and preservatives found in traditional makeup. However, my definition is a bit more specific. True, high-quality mineral makeup should be comprised of pure micronized minerals and should not contain talc, petroleum, alcohol, or fragrance. The ingredients should make the products naturally anti-inflammatory, non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic, and non-irritating. The naturally sourced pigments should provide true colors with excellent, lasting coverage. Oh, and throw in some mineral-based sun protection for good measure.
