FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How many treatments do I need? How much does it cost?
The number of sessions needed to achieve your desired results vary patient to patient. Although the majority of patients may see immediate results after one treatment, some individuals may require additional sessions to achieve optimal results. We recommend at least 4 sessions to start with. CoolTone results can last upward of +6 months with a healthy diet and routine exercise. Retreatment may be needed to maintain CoolTone results overtime.
What is Magnetic Muscle Stimulation?
CoolTone™ uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) to selectively deliver strong pulses to muscle tissues in a noninvasive manner. CoolTone's MMS technology penetrates into the muscle layers and induces involuntary muscle contractions, all in a safe and effective treatment. CoolTone™ is FDA-cleared to strengthen, tone, and firm the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.
How does CoolTone work?
The CoolTone applicator generates a magnetic field that creates a current when it passes through a conductive material. Muscles are good conductors of magnetic fields, unlike skin and fat, which are poor conductors. The induced current is stronger in the muscle layer and the body responds to these contractions by strengthening its muscle fibers and improving muscle conditioning. The result is stronger, firmer, and more toned abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
What areas can be treated?
CoolTone is FDA-cleared to strengthen, tone, and firm three separate areas. Envision a more toned stomach, tighter thighs, and firm buttocks.
What are the differences between Coolsculpting, CoolTone, and Emsculpt?
CoolSculpting is an FDA approved way to get rid of fat bulges using cryolipolysis. Cooltone compliments the results of CoolSculpting by increasing muscle mass, by toning existing muscles, and by resulting in further fat loss on its own. Treatments can be done together, alone, or in combination.
What does it feel like? How long is each session?
You will feel strong muscle contraction interspersed with a tapping sensation during treatment. Many people relax during their sessions.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience muscular pain, temporary muscle spasm, temporary joint or tendon pain, and redness at or near the treatment site. Muscle soreness in the treatment area can occur.
When will I see results? How long does it last?
Most patients will see improvement right away and will continue to see improvement for the next few weeks.
Does CoolTone help diastasis recti (abdominal muscle separation after pregnancy)?
Yes, clinical studies demonstrate an 11% reduction in diastasis recti following 4 treatments with CoolTone. Diastasis recti is a medical term describing the separation of the abdominal muscles. In extreme cases, it can cause a midline hernia (ventral hernia) or bulging of abdominal tissues. This most commonly occurs during pregnancy, as the belly increases in size to accommodate a growing baby. The increasing size of the womb stretches the abdominal muscles, leading to diastasis recti. CoolTone offers non-invasive means of improving diastasis recti.
