Convenience: Each session takes 30 minutes and involves zero downtime, allowing patients to quickly receive their procedure and immediately return to normal activities and tasks, making CoolTone incredibly convenient.

Cost: On average, 1 CoolToning session ranges $300 – $1000 in cost.

Efficacy: Clinical trials and satisfied patients have provided evidence that CoolTone is an effective treatment to strengthen and define targeted muscle groups.

What is CoolTone?

CoolTone is a non-invasive treatment that uses high-frequency electromagnetic muscle stimulation technology to contract targeted muscle groups to the max. These maximal muscle contractions are able to strengthen the muscles and increase muscle mass and definition in the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms. Also known as “the superman workout”, this procedure allows your muscles to contract far beyond the extent to which they are able to contract naturally at the gym. In just 30 minutes, CoolTone causes your muscles to contract 20,000 times, leaving patients with stronger and more defined muscles.

Working hard at the gym, eating right, and consistently playing by the rules can be frustrating when you’re still not seeing the results you’re working towards. While it may seem like you’ve reached a plateau or are starting to feel like nothing will get you where you want to be, achieving your goal body isn’t always doable by natural means, which is why medical innovations have allowed for a nonsurgical and noninvasive option to help you reach your aesthetic goals quicker and easier. Allowing eager patients to strengthen their muscles and finally get the ab definition they’ve been working so hard towards through just 30-minute sessions, Cool Tone sculpting is a safe and effective treatment to do just that, leaving patients glowing with confidence.

How does CoolTone work?

CoolTone, also known as Electromagnetic Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology works by delivering high frequency electromagnetic pulses to the targeted muscle groups, triggering fine motor nerves within the muscle fibers and in turn stimulating both fast-twitch and slow-twitch muscle fibers. This induces supramaximal muscle contractions leaving patients with an increase in muscle mass, strength, definition, and muscle tone. 

What areas of the body can I treat with CoolTone?

CoolTone is primarily used to target the abdominal muscles, glutes, and thighs, though it may also be used in other areas with larger muscle groups. The most popular area treated with EMS technology is the abdomen, which tends to be one of the trickier regions of the body to naturally shape.

Who is a candidate for CoolTone treatment?

Allergan CoolTone can be used on nearly any healthy adult who is looking to achieve visible muscle definition, which is not attainable with a healthy and active lifestyle. There are a few cases in which you may not be a candidate for EMS, for example, if you have metal or electrical implants, piercings, or devices in the area to be treated. Pregnancy and epilepsy also do not make good candidates for this procedure. If you are heavily overweight or obese, your results may not be as effective as those in someone who is near their goal weight.

Are there contraindications for CoolTone?

Because CoolTone uses electromagnetic energy, it can pose a risk to patients with metal or electrical implants on or surrounding the treatment area. These implants may include piercings, pacemakers, metal prostheses, implanted defibrillators, neurostimulators, or drug pumps. EMS may cause these implants to heat up and pose serious damage.

In addition, pregnant women, patients with hemorrhagic conditions, epilepsy, or recent surgical procedures in the area to be treated should not undergo EMS.

It is best to consult with your provider beforehand to go over potential risks to confirm that you are able to undergo the treatment safely and effectively.

How do I prepare for CoolTone?

CoolTone is purely non-invasive and requires virtually no preparation whatsoever. When you come in for your treatment, be sure to wear comfortable clothing as you will be in a lying position for 30 minutes.  Be sure to put your phone away before undergoing EMS, as the machine can actually damage your phone if it gets too close.

What is a CoolTone procedure like?

Before your session, you will have a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Schwarzburg who will confirm that you are a candidate by going over a series of questions and examining the area you would like to treat. Once confirmed, the procedure itself is quite simple. You will be laying down on a reclined medical chair in a supine lying position and the paddle-like CoolTone applicators will be strapped onto the area of concern. When the machine is turned on, there are a number of settings from 1% – 100% that allow you to go with the intensity that you are most comfortable with. During this process, you may experience some twitching or electric shock-type sensations as the EMS device contracts your muscles. After 30 minutes the cycle will be complete, after which you will be free to resume normal activities, such as working, working out, eating, and daily tasks.

How long is a CoolToning session?

It takes 30 minutes to complete one CoolToning cycle. In some cases, patients choose to treat several areas in one sitting, in which case it could take longer depending on how many applicators are applied at once.

Are there CoolTone side effects?

Since the Cooltone procedure works by causing your muscles to spasm involuntarily with the use of magnetic signals, you may feel a little sore after the treatment is over, just as you would feel after a regular workout. Redness may occur in some patients, though this is subtle and subsides within hours or a few days.

Is there downtime for CoolTone?

EMS does not involve any downtime and allows you to return to regular daily activities immediately after your session with zero restrictions.

How much is CoolTone?

You may be wondering, how much does CoolTone cost? The CoolTone price can range anywhere from $400 to $1000 per 1 session and depends on the treatment area, the number of sessions, the location of the practice, and the goals you are trying to achieve. Because optimal results require at least 4 sessions, most patients purchase package deals to reduce the overall price.

Can I combine CoolTone with other body sculpting treatments?

Absolutely. Because EMS is noninvasive, it leaves the door open for all kinds of minimally invasive procedures to add on and further sculpt and contour the body. CoolSculpting is commonly used alongside CoolTone to eliminate unwanted subcutaneous fat to enhance the visibility of muscle definition. In addition, Sculptra butt lift injections can be used to add volume to the buttocks and hips, helping patients achieve that hourglass figure and even more of a lifted buttock. QWO injections are also used in the buttocks and thighs to eliminate pesky cellulite dimples, which cannot be addressed using CoolTone. 

EmSculpt vs CoolTone – How is CoolTone more effective than EmSculpt?

CoolTone and EmSculpt are very much alike and both use electromagnetic muscle stimulation mms to strengthen and define targeted muscles. One benefit that EmSculpt has above CoolTone, is that it simultaneously reduces fat and strengthens the muscles. However, CoolTone is said to deliver 40% more magnetic intensity than EmSculpt, allowing for more enhanced results.

CoolTone vs CoolSculpting

Contrary to popular belief, CoolTone and CoolSculpting are nothing alike aside from the “cool” in their names and their manufacturer, Allergan. 

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that uses controlled cooling delivered to the subcutaneous layer of fat to freeze and kill off adipocytes (fat cells) which are then metabolized by the body over the course of 4 – 8 weeks, resulting in permanent fat reduction in the treated area.

CoolTone is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes electromagnetic muscle stimulation to cause involuntary muscle contractions in the targeted area, resulting in the strengthening and enhancement of the underlying muscles.

Many people wonder if CoolSculpting vs CoolTone is better, however, there is no real foundation for CoolTone vs CoolSculpting debate because they are both completely different from one another. While they may be used in combination for an overall more enhanced body contouring result, one is designed to eliminate fat, while the other is designed to define the muscles.

Can CoolTone and CoolSculpting be done in the same session?

CoolTone and CoolSculpting cannot be performed in the same area at the same time, though you could have them performed in different areas during the same session. When combining the two treatments in one specific area, it is recommended to start with CoolSculpting to eliminate underlying adipose tissue and follow with CoolTone to enhance the muscles once the subcutaneous fat is eliminated, which may take 1 – 3 months.

How does CoolTone work with QWO cellulite reduction treatment?

QWO is an FDA-approved minimally invasive injectable solution to permanently eliminate cellulite in the female buttocks and thighs. CoolTone and QWO are often used together to strengthen, lift, and muscle toning the buttocks and thighs and eliminate pesky cellulite for an overall smoother and shapelier backside.

How many CoolTone sessions will I need?

The recommended number of sessions needed for optimal results is 4 – 6 sessions over a two-week period. When you stay persistent with a regular exercise routine and healthy eating habits, as well as monthly follow-up sessions, these results can be maintained.

Does CoolTone treatment hurt?

CoolTone induced muscle contractions may feel like uncomfortable muscle spasms, twitches, tendon pain or cramps. However, these sensations only last for the duration of the 30-minute cycle.

When will I see the results?

CoolToning results can be seen within a few days to 2 weeks. You may have an initial “pump” much like that of a normal weight training workout, which will then turn into a longer-lasting muscle enhancement.

cooltone before after

What will my CoolTone before and after results look like?

Before CoolToning you will be lacking muscle definition and tone in areas such as your abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. Once you have completed the proper number of sessions, the treated areas will be more defined and stronger. Your buttocks will be lifted and exercises at the gym may become easier to perform due to a stronger core.

How long does it last? Is CoolTone permanent?

CoolTone results last as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle complete with regular exercise and a healthy diet. Most patients schedule monthly follow-up sessions to help maintain their results after the initial 4 – 6 sessions. If you do not continue to train your muscles or gain weight, your results may disappear within 6 months.

Is it covered by insurance?

CoolTone is a cosmetic procedure and thus, is not covered by insurance.

Does CoolTone work?

Yes, the Allergan CoolTone device is clinically proven to be an effective tool to contract the muscles, strengthening and adding definition to the treated areas, namely, the abdominal muscles, gluteal muscles, and thighs. CoolTone reviews are outstanding and each session leaves patients with satisfactory results.

Is CoolTone safe?

Yes! Cool tone by CoolSculpting is FDA-approved to strengthen and define treated muscle layer groups and is completely safe for most patients. Since the procedure is non-invasive and does not require any surgery, you will experience minimal side effects, if any at all. You will be able to return to your daily activities right away!

Before undergoing any kind of cosmetic procedure, it is recommended to first consult with a board-certified cosmetic physician, such as Dr. Schwarzburg, who has an advanced understanding of the human anatomy and the knowledge and expertise to determine whether or not the treatment is right for you.

Is there a scar involved with CoolTone treatment?

No. The Cool Tone procedure is completely non-invasive, meaning that it does not puncture the skin in the slightest. As such, there is no way for it to leave any kind of scarring or evidence of cosmetic “intervention” behind.
