WHAT IS COOLTONING
Do you want a toned, sleek body but are having trouble getting the results you seek even after hours in the gym and watching what you eat? If so, CoolTone™ might be just what you need to get the muscle tone you want, without all the work! We are excited to offer this revolutionary treatment at Omni Centers!
CoolTone is Allergan’s latest innovation in body contouring. CoolTone is a noninvasive body contouring treatment that uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) technology to strengthen, tone, and firm the muscles of the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. The CoolTone device is FDA cleared and has no surgery, scarring or downtime. CoolTone is manufactured by Allergan (the maker of Botox and CoolSculpting) and has been clinically proven to increase muscle mass and potentially reduce fat.
THE COOLTONE DIFFERENCE
The CoolTone Difference: The CoolTone device has 50% more magnetic intensity than the leading competitor, measured in
CoolTone's powerful MMS technology penetrates below the fat layer to strengthen and tone muscle. The state-of-the-art system features liquid-cooled applicators. And as part of Allergan's trusted portfolio of products, you will be eligible to earn Brilliant Distinctions® rewards.
HOW IT WORKS?
CoolTone’s Magnetic Muscle Stimulation, or MMS technology, penetrates through the skin and fat layers to target the muscle layers, inducing involuntary muscle contractions.
During a CoolTone treatment, an applicator is used to deliver energy resulting in contraction of the muscle tissue. Approximately 25,000 supramaximal muscle contractions will occur during a single session. These contractions are much more powerful than the voluntary contractions that occur while performing exercises such as sit ups and crunches or squats and occur at a much faster rate than such exercises can provide. The body responds to these contractions by remodeling and developing muscle tissue resulting in improved muscle strength, firmness and toning.
The process allows patients to receive natural looking tone and contours without a surgical procedure.
WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN YOU TREAT?
CoolTone is FDA-cleared to strengthen, tone, and firm three separate areas. Envision a more toned stomach, tighter thighs, and firm buttocks.
WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN YOU EXPECT?
Allergan, the company who manufactured CoolTone, conducted many clinical studies with multiple patients targeted specifically on the areas of the abdomen and buttocks. The studies measured fat and muscle with imaging (CT scans and MRI studies) by comparing the before and after treatment photos on the patients. The results of the studies show how effective CoolTone is at increasing muscle mass.
In clinical studies, patients gained 16% muscle mass after a series of 4 treatments with the CoolTone system.
You may notice results within just a few weeks, with the most noticeable changes occurring after about three months. We will recommend the right number of treatment sessions for your needs, but generally about 4-8 sessions are needed to start for the best results then you can do maintenance as needed/desired (it is a muscle and if you don’t use it, you will lose it).
ARE YOU A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR COOLTONE?
Ideal candidates are persons who are already physically active and adhere to a healthy diet and lifestyle consistently but desire more definition of their abs and thighs or lifting of their buttocks.
But many others can still benefit by tightening and toning trouble areas with supraphysiological muscle contractions to increase strength and improve performance.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT DURING YOUR TREATMENT
The first step in your CoolTone experience at Omni Centers is a personalized consultation where we will talk with you about your goals, evaluate your targeted treatment areas, and help you decide whether CoolTone is right for you. When you are ready to start your treatment, we will perform the procedure by placing the device over the treatment area, where it will begin to stimulate involuntary muscular contractions. Many patients describe feeling warm muscle contractions at the beginning of the treatment, which is a sign of your muscles strengthening! After the first few minutes of treatment, the intensity will dissipate. After the procedure, which takes about 20-30 minutes depending on the area being treated, you may experience some mild muscle pain, cramping, redness, tingling, or swelling.
HOW MUCH DOES COOLTONE COST?
The CoolTone is sold in an initial package of 4, 6 or 8 and then there is a maintenance program depending on goals and recommendations.
