CoolTone by Allergan is an FDA-cleared device designed to strengthen and tone your abdominal muscles. It can also strengthen, tone, and firm the buttocks and thighs. CoolTone is a noninvasive body contouring treatment that uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) technology to stimulate your own muscle contractions.
The CoolTone device selectively delivers pulses to your muscle tissue through its MMS technology. Using an applicator, CoolTone sends a magnetic current through your muscles to encourage contractions. Unlike skin and fat, muscle is a good conductor for these currents.
By inducing involuntary muscle contractions, the device can tone and strengthen the muscle fibers in your abdomen, buttocks, and thighs without cosmetic surgery.
Unlike other body contouring treatments, CoolTone doesn’t freeze or heat your fat cells to remove unwanted fat. Instead, this device directly targets your body’s natural muscle tone.
CoolTone delivers electromagnetic energy to your muscles, which forces them to contract. For those looking to tone and firm their midsection, CoolTone is the ideal solution.
How many CoolTone treatments you need depends on the areas you want to treat. Most patients need multiple treatments to see the results they desire.
In most cases, you will need at least four treatments over the course of about two weeks. However, many patients experience noticeable toning and firming after just one treatment.
CoolTone is not a painful treatment. It feels like strong muscle contractions. However, patients who are thin may experience fatigue after their treatment. Your treatment area may also feel sore and tender, much like it might after an intense workout. To prepare for your visit, make sure you fully empty your bladder and avoid eating a heavy meal prior to your appointment.
CoolTone is not a fat-loss treatment. It specifically promotes muscle building and toning, so it will not help you lose weight or fat. CoolTone may be the right treatment for you if you’re already at a healthy weight and want to tone your thighs, buttocks, or abdomen.
