The idea of toning muscles without breaking a sweat sounds too good to be true. However, CoolTone makes this dream a reality. This innovative new technology helps you get in shape without you having to set foot in a gym. 

What Is CoolTone?

CoolTone is the newest body contouring treatment from Allergan, the makers of Coolsculpt, Botox, Juvederm, and more. Using Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS), a non-invasive procedure, CoolTone can strengthen, tone, and firm the muscles in the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. The MMS causes the muscles to contract. These contractions are much more powerful than those that occur when doing traditional exercises like crunches or sit-ups.  

How Does CoolTone Work?

CoolTone uses powerful magnetic forces to stimulate the muscles, which penetrate below the fat layer to strengthen and tone the muscles. The procedure is painless and uses state of the art liquid-cooled applicators. 

During a CoolTone treatment, the applicator is placed on the treatment area, and then the device sends magnetic energy through your skin, creating thousands of involuntary muscle contractions. You get to sit back and relax while your muscles continue to contract for the duration of the treatment. A typical CoolTone session is about 30 minutes per treatment area. Following a CoolTone treatment, you should drink plenty of water. This will help flush out the lactic acid created by your muscles during the treatment and reduce “post-workout” soreness. 

How Effective is CoolTone?

CoolTone is recommended for patients that are looking to tone their muscles and who are not overweight. A BMI of less than 30 is ideal to see the best results. For patients who already live an active lifestyle, a CoolTone treatment can enhance your workout results. The results of CoolTone will be similar to going to the gym but in much less time. A series of four treatments over a two week period are recommended.  

Is CoolTone Safe?

CoolTone is safe and FDA-cleared to strengthen, tone, and firm up the stomach, buttocks, and thigh muscles. However, if you have a medical condition or any medical device such as hearing assistant devices, defibrillators, pacemaker, implanted neurostimulators, drug pumps, or any other type of implanted device, you should speak with one of our highly trained nurse practitioners to see if CoolTone is a safe option for you.

If you’re looking to tone up and want to see if CoolTone is a good option for you, schedule a free consultation with one of our healthcare practitioners at The Skin Care Center at Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery.
