CoolTone, developed by Allergan, is a groundbreaking advance in body sculpting technology. Despite a healthy diet and regular (even rigorous) exercise, it can be difficult to achieve a sculpted, contoured body with visible muscle definition. Using non-invasive, high-frequency electromagnetic energy, CoolTone stimulates ultra-rapid muscle contractions to increase muscle mass, tone, strength, and definition in the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms. CoolTone not only creates noticeably toned muscles, but also significantly improves athletic performance.
CoolTone by Body By uses high-frequency, electromagnetic waves that trigger supramaximal muscle stimulation to remodel a targeted body area. The rapid muscle contractions stimulated by the device would be impossible to achieve naturally, even with the most intense workout.
CoolTone’s Magnetic Muscle Stimulation, or MMS technology, penetrates through the skin and fat layers, targeting only the muscle layer, stimulating a rapid series of involuntary muscle contractions.
Target areas include the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and upper arms, all of which are areas prone to excess fatty tissue, lax muscle tone, and lack of muscle definition. These areas also tend to be more difficult to sculpt and trim with exercise. By penetrating the skin and fatty tissue, and going directly to muscles, CoolTone triggers intense, rapid muscle contractions that create noticeable firming, lifting, and tightening results -- that become visible within days.
The CoolTone by Body By treatment experience is easy, comfortable, and quick! What would normally take you hours, days, or even years to achieve at the gym, is performed in just 30 minutes (we recommend 4 treatments over a two week period). Although one treatment session takes 30 minutes, an entire treatment plan may last longer based on the number of areas you want to treat. You will rest comfortably during your sessions, and will feel the deep, rapid muscle contractions, stimulated by the CoolTone device. Following your 30 minute session(s), you are free to go about your day or evening with no restrictions or downtime. Your muscles may feel somewhat sore the following day and two days later, similar to what you would feel after an intense work out.
Candidates for CoolTone are people in good general health and within close range of a healthy weight who want to achieve greater muscle strength, mass, and definition, and tighter skin. Most people are good candidates, with a few exceptions. The treatment should not be performed on those with implants such as a pacemaker, that could be affected by electromagnetic stimulation.
CoolTone and CoolSculpting by Body By are both non-invasive technologies developed by Allergan to improve and enhance the contours of the body, but they work in very different ways to achieve this. CoolSculpting is the ideal non-invasive treatment for those with fatty deposits on abdomen, thighs, upper arms, flanks, and other areas. The fat cells frozen with the CoolSculpting system are destroyed, after which they are slowly swept away by the body’s natural processes in the weeks and months following treatment.
CoolTone bypasses the skin and fatty tissue of the body and works by directly stimulating and contracting the muscles with high-frequency electromagnetic pulses. This increases blood flow, and tightens, builds, and strengthens muscle mass, for a leaner figure.
CoolTone was recently FDA-approved and is considered safe. Most people who are in good general health, and within a reasonable number of pounds of an ideal weight can achieve a remarkable improvement in body contour with CoolTone treatments. Those who have implanted medical devices or who have epilepsy should not undergo these treatments.
Our body sculpting treatments are customized to suit the individual. If you have larger quantities of excess fat, you may want to undergo CoolSculpting first, followed by CoolTone treatments. If you are generally in good shape but are suffering from muscle and skin laxity, you may be the perfect candidate for CoolTone.
A session lasts 30 minutes, and for maximum body contouring, should be delivered twice a week for two weeks.
There are no side effects after a CoolTone treatment, other than feeling as if you had engaged in a particularly vigorous workout. The increased muscle mass will remain for at least six months and can be refreshed and enhanced with additional CoolTone treatments.
