CoolTone™ by CoolSculpting® is FDA approved to increase muscle tone through the use of magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS). The body’s response to these mild, involuntary contractions is to strengthen the muscles under the targeted area. We are excited to offer this to our patients who meet specific considerations, including healthy BMI, level of adipose tissue, and muscle definition.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Areas Can Be Treated With CoolTone™?
CoolTone™ can be used to treat the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and triceps. These areas are typically ones that are harder to build definition in with exercise alone. Additionally, CoolTone™ has been shown to reduce diastasis recti by as much as 11% in clinical studies.
What Can I Expect From Treatment?
CoolTone™ is a quick treatment, taking only 30 minutes to complete. At Dermgroup NYC, we recommend treatment twice per week for two weeks to see maximum results. To maintain results, we also recommend one additional treatment every three to six months.
It is important to note that CoolTone™ doesn’t reduce the appearance of fat, but increases muscle definition and tone in certain parts of the body. To be a good candidate for CoolTone™, you will need to have a healthy BMI; otherwise, the results will not be visible. In clinical studies, a 16% increase in muscle mass was achieved after four treatments.
Does CoolTone™ Hurt?
CoolTone™ doesn’t hurt and requires no downtime. Most patients report that the treatment feels like a series of strong muscle contractions. Thinner patients may feel this sensation more intensely and may also feel a decrease in energy immediately afterward. You may notice mild soreness in the treatment area, similar to that of a strength-training workout, but it should subside within a day.
