WHAT IS COOLTONE?
CoolTone is a new non-surgical procedure for body contouring, brought to you by Allergan, the folks behind CoolSculpting. Beleza Surgery is one of the first medspas in Central Texas to offer the new CoolTone service.
HOW DOES COOLTONE WORK?
This new innovative procedure tightens, strengthens, and tones the muscles in the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs, leading to a firmer and more defined look. This procedure is non-surgical and non-invasive – no need for anesthesia, surgical incisions, needles, or pain medications. It also has no downtime, so you can exercise right after!
CoolTone works by delivering magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) into the muscle fibers to trigger strong muscle contractions that your body could not otherwise achieve on its own. This causes up to 25,000 involuntary supramaximal muscle contractions per session, resulting in your body’s response to strengthen its muscle fibers and improving muscle conditioning. It enables the body to achieve results that most intensive exercises cannot provide in a short time.
WHAT DOES COOLTONE FEEL LIKE?
During the procedure, the patient is comfortably lying or seated on a chair while the CoolTone device is attached firmly on the area of treatment, either on the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. The CoolTone Specialist will increase the frequency of the electromagnetic stimulation with the goal of reaching 100% stimulus. The CoolTone Specialist will always be in the treatment room with the patient to make sure the patient is comfortable throughout the session.
You will feel strong muscle contractions interspersed with a tapping sensation. Patients can experience muscular pain, temporary muscle spasm, and redness at or near the treatment site. Muscle soreness in the treatment area can occur. A single CoolTone session can last about 30 minutes.
WHAT RESULTS WILL COOLTONE PROVIDE?
The main goal of CoolTone is to provide strength of underlying muscles in the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs, improving the appearance in the treated area. This is a great way for patients to find ways to enhance their bodies in a non-surgical procedure, realizing their body contouring goals.
Each patient that is interested in CoolTone will have a complimentary consultation with a CoolTone Specialist. During the consultation, the specialist will recommend the number of sessions to achieve your aesthetic goals. It can range anywhere from a series of four sessions to ten sessions. Each patient is different so the exact number of sessions to meet your goals can vary depending on muscle characteristics in the desired area. Patients have stated that after a single session, they have felt muscle strengthening and an improved appearance after a single session.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?
CoolTone can be ideal for someone looking to improve muscle definition in the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. Ideal patients would need to meet the healthy BMI range and some muscle definition or tone to reach maximum efficacy. Patients who are active and have been trying to reach their appearance goals in the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs, and are wanting that extra muscle definition and tone are ideal candidates for this procedure.
If interested, a complimentary consultation would be a great start to learn more about CoolTone, talk about your aesthetic goals and see if you meet the requirements for the treatment. Your provider will work with you to create a plan tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
COOLTONE VS. COOLSCULPTING
CoolTone and CoolSculpting are treatments provided by the same manufacturer, however, these two treatments vary differently in non-surgical body contouring treatments. While CoolTone treats muscle tone and definition, CoolSculpting aims to freeze fat cells in desired areas.
Both CoolTone and CoolSculpting can be used simultaneously if a patient wants to rid unwanted fat cells and build muscle definition and tone. This combination can maximize your results – transforming and enhancing your body goals.
*The CoolTone device is FDA-cleared for improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of the abdominal muscles, and development for firmer abdomen. It is also FDA-cleared for strengthening, toning, and firming of buttocks and thighs. Contact us to schedule your consultation today.
