CoolTone, developed by Allergan, is a groundbreaking advance in body sculpting technology. Despite a healthy diet and regular (even rigorous) exercise, it can be difficult to achieve a sculpted, contoured body with visible muscle definition. Using non-invasive, high-frequency electromagnetic energy, CoolTone stimulates ultra-rapid muscle contractions to increase muscle mass, tone, strength, and definition in the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. CoolTone not only creates noticeably toned muscles, but also significantly improves athletic performance.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COOLTONE WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED? Target areas include the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and upper arms, all of which are areas prone to excess fatty tissue, lax muscle tone, and lack of muscle definition. These areas also tend to be more difficult to sculpt and trim with exercise. By penetrating the skin and fatty tissue, and going directly to muscles, CoolTone triggers intense, rapid muscle contractions that create noticeable firming, lifting, and tightening results -- that become visible within days.
WHAT IS A COOLTONE TREATMENT LIKE? The CoolTone treatment experience is easy, comfortable, and quick! What would normally take you hours, days, or even years to achieve at the gym, is performed in just 30 minutes (we recommend 4 treatments over a two week period). Although one treatment session takes 30 minutes, an entire treatment plan may last longer based on the number of areas you want to treat. You will rest comfortably during your sessions, and will feel the deep, rapid muscle contractions, stimulated by the CoolTone device. Following your 30 minute session(s), you are free to go about your day or evening with no restrictions or downtime. Your muscles may feel somewhat sore the following day and two days later, similar to what you would feel after an intense work out.
HOW DOES COOLTONE WORK? CoolTone uses high-frequency, electromagnetic waves that trigger supramaximal muscle stimulation to remodel a targeted body area. The rapid muscle contractions stimulated by the device would be impossible to achieve naturally, even with the most intense workout. CoolTone’s Magnetic Muscle Stimulation, or MMS technology, penetrates through the skin and fat layers, targeting only the muscle layer, stimulating a rapid series of involuntary muscle contractions.
WHAT IS SUPRAMAXIMAL MUSCLE CONTRACTION? Your muscles only contract as needed to perform any physical task. Supramaximal muscle contractions are when the entire bundle of muscle strands contracts, which has the effect of quickly and effectively building and strengthening the targeted muscles.
CANDIDACY FOR COOLTONE Candidates for CoolTone are people in good general health and within close range of a healthy weight who want to achieve greater muscle strength, mass, and definition, and tighter skin. Most people are good candidates, with a few exceptions. The treatment should NOT be performed on those with implants such as a pacemaker, that could be affected by electromagnetic stimulation.
