CoolTone™ Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) technology to strengthen, tone, and firm muscles


CoolTone™ is the newest body-shaping device from the same manufacturer of CoolSculpting®. It strengthens and tones muscles by stimulating contractions with magnetic energy, creating a tighter and firmer physique. CoolTone™ was cleared by the FDA in June 2019 for the treatment of muscles in the abdominal area, thighs, and buttock. CoolTone™ is similar to Emsculpt®, as they both use a type of magnetic energy to create muscle definition, however, CoolTone™ has 50% more magnetic intensity, measured in tesla (T), at the point of patient contact. After a CoolTone™ series, your muscles will look more defined and toned.

How do I know if I am a candidate for CoolTone™?

The ideal candidate might have stubborn pockets of fat, but are generally of average weight. If you are looking to improve muscle tone and firmness in your abdominal, buttock or thigh regions, you may want to consider CoolTone™ treatments.  CoolTone™ can also help increase strength and conditioning of the muscles in these areas.

How does CoolTone™ work?

CoolTone™’s Magnetic Muscle Stimulation, or MMS technology, penetrates into the muscle layers and induces involuntary muscle contractions. The body’s response to these contractions is to strengthen its muscle fibers, resulting in improved muscle conditioning and increased muscle mass. After CoolTone™ treatments, the abdomen will be firmer and have a more defined and toned appearance. Buttocks will have a more firm and lifted appearance.

How will I look and feel during and after the treatment?

During a CoolTone™ session, paddles are placed over the clothes on the abdomen, buttock or thigh regions. You can relax, lay down, and remain in a comfortable position throughout the 30 min treatment period. Magnetic energy is delivered, stimulating involuntary muscle contractions, which feels like a tightening and relaxing of the muscles in the underlying area. The intensity can be increased as tolerated. After the treatment, there may be soreness to the muscles in the treatment area, just like after an intense work out.

What benefits can I expect from CoolTone™?

Benefits of CoolTone™ are improved muscle conditioning, and a firmer, more defined, and toned appearance of the treated area. Your results will improve with each subsequent treatment, and should increase over time, as the targeted muscle fibers strengthen and muscle mass increases. With a healthy diet and regular exercise, results can last six months or more, but treatments are recommended every three to six months to maintain muscle mass. After treatment in the abdominal area, some patients have even experienced less back pain.

Can CoolTone™ be combined with other treatments?

Yes- eliminate fat with CoolSculpting®, then tone muscle with CoolTone™, for enhanced slimming and sculpting. The two treatments can be combined together within the same treatment plan for even better results. Fat reduction treatments may be recommended prior to reduce the overlying fat and increase efficacy of CoolTone.  

Are there other ways to get the same benefit?

Yes. There are other similar devices that stimulate muscle contractions using electromagnetic energy, such as Emsculpt. truSculpt® flex is another muscle stimulation device that uses multidirectional stimulation and different types of contractions to target specific muscles individually. There are other non-surgical treatments you can do to firm and tighten skin, such as Thermage. truSculpt® iD can also help eliminate fat and tighten skin. 

What are the risks and side effects of CoolTone™?

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.

Rare side effects may also occur. As with any medical procedure, a consultation should be done by a licensed healthcare professional.

Is there anyone who shouldn’t have CoolTone™?

CoolTone™ should not be used on patients with cardiac pacemakers, cochlear implants, intrathecal pumps, implanted defibrillators, implanted neurostimulators, drug pumps, and hearing aids.

You should not use CoolTone™ if you have Grave’s disease, an active bleeding disorder, seizure disorders, a gastrointestinal disorder, including IBS, or if you have a fever, malignant tumor, hemorrhagic condition, epilepsy, pulmonary insufficiency, pregnancy, sensitivity or allergy to latex. Additionally, treatment should not occur in areas of recent surgical procedures or muscle injury.

Women who are close to menstruation may find that it comes sooner or cramping is increased or intensified with CoolTone™ treatments, therefore it is recommended to not undergo treatment during this time of the month.

What is the cost of CoolTone™?

Single treatments begin at $500.  During a consultation the number of treatments best suited for your results, will be discussed with you by your provider.   *Results vary with each individual.
