If you’re having trouble achieving a toned look even with regular exercise, you’re not alone. Factors like genetics or hormones can interfere with your workouts and make it difficult to build muscle in hard-to-target areas like the stomach, thighs or buttocks. CoolTone® is an advanced body contouring treatment that can help you reach your body goals by triggering muscle contractions that add tone and definition where you need it most.

What is CoolTone®?

Developed by the makers of CoolSculpting®, CoolTone® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that can help you strengthen, tone, and firm your abs, glutes and thighs. It can be frustrating to spend hours at the gym without seeing the results you want, but CoolTone® can help you push past the workout plateau and build muscle in key problem areas to sculpt slimmer, leaner body contours. It works by using Active Magnetic Pulse™ (AMP™) technology to stimulate thousands of supramaximal muscle contractions during each treatment session. Developed by leading scientists and fitness experts, these magnetic pulse patterns are designed to build muscle while promoting active recovery.

In just 30 minutes, CoolTone® delivers the equivalent of 25,000 crunches or situps, well beyond what’s possible in an average workout. This can sculpt and fill out your physique in a way that you can’t with exercise alone, adding visible muscle definition and increasing your fitness levels. While CoolTone® isn’t a fat loss treatment, it can also help reduce unwanted fat by triggering a process known as lipolysis. However, if excess fat is a concern, you’ll see more dramatic results by combining your treatment with other body contouring devices that are designed to target fat cells, such as CoolSculpting® or UltraShape.


How Does CoolTone® Work?

CoolTone® generates a magnetic field that produces a current as it passes through conductive materials, causing involuntary muscle contractions. Unlike skin and fat cells, muscle fibers are good conductors of magnetic charges. As the device stimulates the muscles, the body responds by strengthening the muscle fibers to improve growth, strength and conditioning. This is accomplished with non-invasive, external stimulation that harmlessly bypasses the skin and other tissues, providing a safe and effective treatment option for enhancing your body contours.

Is CoolTone® Right for Me?

CoolTone® is a great option for those who want to build muscle and target certain problem areas, but it is not a weight-loss treatment. Instead, CoolTone® is FDA-cleared for strengthening, toning and firming the thighs, buttocks and abdomen. Ideal candidates should be a healthy weight and without a lot of excess fat in treatment areas, which can prevent the magnetic energy from penetrating deep enough. Patients with a higher BMI will still see results, but more sessions will be needed to achieve them.

If you’re thinking about Cooltone™, you’ll see the most benefit from treatment if you have:

  • A healthy BMI
  • Specific areas of concern
  • Minimal excess body fat
  • An active, healthy lifestyle
  • Some degree of existing muscle tone/definition

During your consultation, Dr. Maas and the team at The Appearance Care Center™ will assess your concerns to determine if CoolTone® is right for you. They’ll also develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your unique body goals.

What to Expect During Treatment

CoolTone® treatments are a quick, easy and convenient way to improve your muscle tone and definition. Each session typically takes 30 minutes to complete, but this can vary depending on your areas of concern. When you arrive for your appointment, you’ll relax comfortably as the device is placed on your stomach, thighs or buttocks. Then, it will begin emitting magnetic energy that passes through the skin and other tissues to stimulate the underlying muscles. You’ll feel strong muscle contractions and a tapping sensation during treatment, but it isn’t painful or uncomfortable. Your provider can adjust the intensity depending on your goals and comfort level. Most patients are able to read, check their email, or relax as the device works to build muscle tone.

Afterward, you’ll be able to resume your normal activities. You may experience some soreness, but there’s typically no downtime with CoolTone® treatments.

CoolTone® Results & Recovery

Immediately following your appointment, it will feel like you just had an intense workout. Treated muscles might be sore or stiff, but this is temporary and will subside over the next few days. Most patients can manage these side effects without disrupting their normal routine. No downtime or specific post-treatment protocols are required.

Your results will begin to develop in the next few weeks, but the most dramatic results will appear after completing a series of treatments. On average, clinical studies show a 16% increase in muscle mass after just four sessions. You will continue to see improvements for about six weeks after your last appointment, as the treated muscle fibers will continue to strengthen. Most patients undergo at least four to six treatments to reach their goals.

Just like building muscle with weight lifting or exercise, CoolTone® results aren’t permanent, but you can maintain and prolong them with an active, healthy lifestyle. You can also undergo additional treatments every three to six months to keep your muscles in top condition.

What does CoolTone® feel like? Do treatments hurt?

CoolTone® treatments are generally considered comfortable, but you will feel the muscle contractions triggered by the device. The intensity can vary depending on your needs and can be adjusted as necessary. Many patients are able to relax comfortably during treatment.

How long does a CoolTone® session last?

Sessions are typically about 30 minutes for each treatment area. Larger muscle groups, like those in the stomach, may take longer to treat, while smaller muscles require less time.

Are there any side effects of CoolTone®?

There are no serious side effects associated with CoolTone®, although you may experience muscular pain, temporary muscle spasms, joint pain and redness at or near the treatment site. Menstruating women may also experience more intense cramping after treatment, so it’s recommended to schedule treatments before or after your period.

Is it OK to have CoolTone® treatments if I’m on my period?

Women may find that their period comes sooner or that cramping is intensified with CoolTone® treatments. Therefore, it is recommended not to undergo treatment during this time of the month. It also shouldn’t be used if you’re currently pregnant.

If I have a metal or electronic implant, is it OK to receive CoolTone® treatments?

CoolTone® should not be performed in areas with metal or electronic implants or devices, including cardiac pacemakers, hearing devices, implanted defibrillators, implanted neurostimulators and drug pumps. Make sure to mention any implants or devices during your consultation to ensure a safe treatment.

Does CoolTone® interfere with any medical conditions?

Tell your doctor if you have any known medical conditions, sensitivities or allergies prior to your treatment. CoolTone® should not be used over areas of skin that lack normal sensation or have new bone growth. It also shouldn’t be used in patients with a fever, malignant tumor, hemorrhagic conditions, epilepsy, a pulmonary valve defect, or latex allergies.

CoolTone® should be used with caution in patients with Graves’ disease (an autoimmune disorder that causes overactive thyroid), active bleeding disorders, or seizure disorders.

Can CoolTone® help with abdominal separation (diastasis recti) after pregnancy?

Diastasis recti is the separation of the abdominal muscles following pregnancy, which stretch and shift to accommodate a growing baby. This can cause an unsightly stomach bulge that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise. Clinical studies show that CooltTone™ can improve diastasis recti by up to 11% after four treatments.
