When toning muscles is your goal, take yourself further with CoolTone™.
What is CoolTone
The latest to gain clearance by the Food and Drug Administration is called CoolTone, and it comes to us courtesy of Allergan, the same company that manufactures Botox and CoolSculpting devices. Even though the word “cool” is in the name, however, the CoolTone device doesn’t involve freezing of any sort (unlike CoolSculpting, which does freeze — and kill — fat cells).
Benefits of CoolTone
CoolTone, on the other hand, is intended to help strengthen and tone muscles. It does this via magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS), which basically shoots electromagnetic energy into your muscles to cause involuntary contractions. The body’s response to these involuntary contractions is to strengthen the muscle fibers underneath the targeted area of treatment, so the result is supposedly stronger, firmer, and more defined muscles. In other words, while CoolSculpting literally freezes and kills fat cells (which are then naturally flushed out of the body), CoolTone works to tone underlying muscle fibers.
More about CoolTone
If you’re well-versed in noninvasive body-contouring procedures, the technology behind CoolTone might ring a bell. That’s because it’s similar to that of the Emsculpt device, which both builds muscle fibers and kills fat cells at the same time.
What makes CoolTone different, according to Allergan, is that it offers 50 percent more magnetic intensity than its leading competitor (aka Emsculpt), although currently, there isn’t any clinical data to back up this claim.
As of now, the CoolTone device has been FDA-cleared to help firm up muscle in three body areas: the abs, butt, and thighs.
Financing Options Available
In general, insurance doesn’t cover the cost of CoolSculpting® or other cosmetic procedures because these treatments are elective. It’s best to check with your insurance provider to determine if either of these will be covered by your private insurance. GreensSky and CareCredit provide you with flexible and convenient financing options for your treatment plans.
