What is CoolTone?

coolsculpting logo

CoolTone is a new non-surgical approach to body contouring that tones, firms, and strengthens the muscle structure of the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs with magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) technology. Your body responds to the contractions by developing stronger muscle fibers, resulting in a firmer, more defined, toned body. A single CoolTone treatment is the equivalent of doing 25,000 sit-ups in a half hour.

CoolTone was cleared by the FDA in June 2019, and Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery is proud to be the 1st practice in Texas and the 4th practice in the entire U.S. to offer this groundbreaking body sculpting treatment.

How does CoolTone work?

CoolTone targets only the muscle layer of your body, triggering rapid deep muscle contractions. The MMS technology (magnetic muscle stimulation) emitted by the device targets the muscle layer beneath your skin and fat, triggering rapid muscle contractions – far more and faster than you could ever achieve exercising.

Compared to similar treatments, CoolTone delivers 50% higher magnetic intensity. This means significantly more efficient and effective muscle building.

What is the CoolTone treatment experience like?

While you relax, read, or rest, the CoolTone device applicator delivers the HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic) energy to the area you want to sculpt, contracting the muscle tissues. In one session of CoolTone, approximately 25,000 muscle contractions occur in about 30 to 45 minutes. The level of contraction triggered by the device is variable and can be increased from mild to more intense depending on how the treatment feels to you.

What is recovery from CoolTone treatments like?

There is no real recovery time from a CoolTone treatment, although the treated area will be sore as if you had performed a tough workout. You are free to go about your day as usual following treatment, with no restrictions.

Can CoolTone be combined with any other treatments?

Absolutely! CoolTone can be combined with CoolSculpting for fat reduction to create firm, cut, body definition. Think of Coolsculpting synergistically working with CoolTone. The combination treatment simultaneously removes fat and builds up your muscle and definition, all with no needles, no downtime, and no surgery.

CoolTone® FAQ

Can I do CoolTone if I am overweight?

If you have a great deal of excess fat, you are probably not initially a candidate for CoolTone. As the energy from the device reaches to about 7 centimeters (2 ¾ inches approximately), if you have a larger quantity of fat, the energy may not reach your muscle structure.

Adverse effects may include, but are not limited to muscular pain, temporary muscle spasm, temporary joint or tendon pain, and local erythema or skin redness.
