What is CoolTone?
CoolTone is a magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) procedure. The device sends electromagnetic energy into your muscles, causing them to contract thousands of times per minute. Your muscle fibers respond just like they would to your working out: they grow stronger, firmer, and more toned in appearance.
Essentially, CoolTone provides in a 30-minute session what might take weeks of regular ab workouts to achieve without it—and because it always targets exactly the right muscles to the full extent, it may even provide results that exercise cannot!
While CoolTone is not the only MMS procedure available, it is the strongest. CoolTone delivers 50% more magnetic intensity compared to other FDA cleared devices, which means you get more benefit from every treamtent.
Where can CoolTone be used?
CoolTone is FDA cleared to treat abdominal muscles. We can also use it to tone and strengthen the buttocks and upper thighs.
What to expect during a CoolTone treatment at Berks Plastic Surgery
We perform CoolTone in our non-surgical treatment rooms at Berks Plastic Surgery. No anesthesia or special prep is needed. You’ll lie on the comfy treatment bed, and we’ll place the CoolTone paddle on your stomach, thighs, or other areas that you are having treated.
Each treatment takes 30 minutes. The CoolTone treatment delivers magnetic energy in intervals. You will feel your muscles involuntarily contract with each interval. This can feel strange at first, but you can relax and let CoolTone do all the work. When your treatment session is complete, you can go right about your day.
CoolTone + CoolSculpting: the perfect combo for killer abs
Fat reduction and muscle-sculpting go together like peanut butter and jelly! By including both CoolSculpting and CoolTone in your treatment plan, you can tone your abs and get rid of the stubborn fat concealing them, all without surgery or downtime.
This is a very popular option with our Berks Plastic Surgery patients who desire a truly sculpted look that diet and exercise alone isn’t achieving for them.
Does magnetic muscle stimulation hurt?
Most patients say that CoolTone magnetic muscle stimulation feels weird or mildly uncomfortable, especially the first time they have the treatment done, but it does not hurt. Some of the contractions can feel intense, but you will only feel them in the muscles being treated.
Is there any downtime?
No downtime is required after CoolTone, but you can expect to be pretty sore in the treated area for a few days. It will feel like you did a super-intense workout (because in essence, you did), so you may not feel like doing any ab-heavy workouts for a little while. Soreness subsides gradually, and becomes less intense with each subsequent treatment, as your muscles strengthen and adapt.
How soon will I see results?
Results appear gradually as your muscle fibers adapt to the treatment and grow stronger and thicker. Most patients can see and feel a difference within a few weeks of each treatment. Also, CoolTone has a cumulative effect; the more treatments you have, the better your results will get.
How long do the results last?
Results typically last 3 to 6 months or longer with regular exercise and a healthy diet. CoolTone is not a substitute for diet and exercise. You’ll need to keep up your strength-training to maintain your results. You can also have a follow-up treatment every few months to boost the effects.
