What is CoolTone?
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
CoolTone can build and tone muscles in the abdomen, buttocks and legs. During a Cooltone treatment, an applicator is used to deliver energy to contract the muscle tissue. Approximately 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions will occur during a single session. During treatment, the muscles respond to this intensity and begin to remodel and develop muscle tissue, similar to intense exercise. The process allows patients to receive natural looking tone and contours without a surgical procedure. One treatment session typically lasts about 30 minutes. A series of 4 is typically recommended depending on your ultimate goals , which 2 weekly sessions can be performed.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN COOLSCULPTING AND COOLTONE & EMSCULPT?
CoolSculpting is a proven 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. Cooltone vs Emsculpt: cooltone device can provide 50% more magnetic intensity (1.35 Tesla vs 0.9 Tesla) when compared to Emsculpt and operating at 100%.
The CoolTone device is the newest in non-invasive body sculpting gaining FDA clearance in 2019. CoolTone is manufactured by Allergan (the maker of Botox and CoolSculpting) and has been clinically proven to increase muscle mass and reduce fat for the abdomen, buttocks and legs, and it is Pain Free!
