CoolTone™ is a non-invasive body contouring treatment from Allergan, the same company that manufactures commonly used cosmetic treatments like CoolSculpting and BOTOX.
Unlike CoolSculpting, CoolTone does not involve freezing of any sort, instead uses magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) to cause muscle contractions. These contractions strengthen muscle fibers for more defined muscular shape and firmer muscles.
While CoolSculpting freezes and kills fat cells, CoolTone is used to tone the underlying muscle fibers. These treatments can be used independently from one another, or together to promote enhanced results. A consultation with Dr. Webster will determine which methods will help you to achieve your desired results.
CoolTone™uses an innovative toning method called Magnetic Muscle Stimulation, which targets muscle cells and helps to strengthen, tone, and firm muscles. By sending quick bursts of electromagnetic energy into the muscles, the muscles contract rapidly. This will tighten and tone the targeted muscle fibers and can be applied to the muscles of the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs for a sleek, toned appearance.
This method penetrates beneath layers of fat to target and strengthen muscles using liquid-cooled applicators. This treatment method is cleared by the FDA.
What results can I expect from CoolTone™?
CoolTone treatment can be used to lift and firm your buttocks, enhance definition in your arms, abs, or thighs, and improve your overall appearance. For optimal results, most patients require between three and four CoolTone treatments. Maintenance treatments can be done every three to four months continued results.
Many patients who have used the CoolTone treatment report improvements in workout performance and overall stamina.
What is recovery from CoolTone™ like?
CoolTone™ is a non-invasive treatment, meaning patients can return to normal activities immediately after their appointment. Reported side effects of CoolTone™ include redness, tingling, swelling, and mild muscle soreness in the targeted area following treatment.
Do CoolTone™ results last?
Results vary from person to person, but most report seeing noticeable definition immediately following a full treatment cycle of CoolTone™. CoolTone™ is not intended to replace exercise, but it is an excellent supplement to a healthy workout routine.
The number of CoolTone™ treatments needed varies based on your current lifestyle, medical history, and desired results.
