To learn more, simply contact us today and schedule a consultation!
What Is CoolTone™?
Magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) works by delivering electromagnetic waves through the skin and fat to stimulate the underlying muscles. This stimulation causes the muscles to contract. It does so much faster than you could do in the gym, and with pinpoint accuracy. In fact, where you might only be able to do 10, 20, or perhaps 50 crunches at a time in the gym, one session of CoolTone™ is the equivalent of more than 25,000 crunches!
Who is a candidate for CoolTone?
Many adults are great candidates for CoolTone muscle tightening treatment. The best results may be achieved with people who are at their ideal weight and have healthy lifestyle habits that support their goals. Skin value, fat stores, and current muscle tone are all evaluated during our initial consultation. This enables us to predict what kind of improvement CoolTone may achieve.
What People Say About Us!
"I should have done this years ago! I came to The Bougainvillea Clinique in 2011 for a consultation and I never followed through with [the surgery]. I allowed myself to be miserable in my own skin for 8 more years before coming back to Dr. Hartog. The staff and Dr. Hartog were phenomenal from my very first appointment! I felt comfortable the entire time and I knew I was in the best hands. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Hartog and his amazing staff. If I could change one thing it would be going back in 2011 and doing it "

How does CoolTone work?
When your muscle fibers are worked hard, they sustain microscopic tears. This is exactly what happens to them in your gym workout as well. Over the next two to three days, and as you eat plenty of protein, your muscles rebuild themselves. Each time you exercise your muscles, whether with CoolTone™ or at the gym, they build up stronger than before.
The difference with CoolTone™ is the results are typically much faster, more dramatic, and more precise than gym exercise. In addition, the treatment delivers a 50% higher magnetic intensity than similar procedures.
Is CoolTone safe?
Yes. The focused magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) that occurs during each CoolTone session affects the muscles similarly to exercise, only more pronounced. Because the deep muscle contractions are strong, treatment sessions are limited to half an hour.
What is the difference between CoolTone and CoolSculpting?
CoolTone is made by Allergan, the same manufacturer that developed the CoolSculpting device. The two are a perfect complement. CoolSculpting has been one of the leading devices for non-invasive fat reduction for the past several years. Now comes CoolTone, which is used to tone muscles deep beneath the skin. The two work differently. To reduce fat, CoolSculpting emits freezing temperatures into adipose tissue. This causes fat cells to crystallize. The damage results in their elimination through the lymphatic system. To tone muscles, CoolTone emits controlled electromagnetic energy that passes through the layer of fat to constrict the muscle fibers beneath them.
What are the benefits of using CoolTone for Body Contouring?
CoolTone offers several benefits, beginning with amazing results! The purpose of this treatment is to achieve what is difficult to do with diet and exercise alone. The device has been developed to safely target the deep muscles in various treatment areas and cause thousands of contractions in a short session. These contractions outdo anything you could do at the gym in a week, let alone in thirty minutes. With CoolTone, adults can improve the appearance of their buttocks, thighs, or abdomen. CoolTone can even improve diastasis recti, the troubling problem that some women develop during pregnancy. In addition to the results that CoolTone achieves, this treatment is also convenient, safe, comfortable, and improvements can be long-lasting.
What does CoolTone Treatment feel like?
From the description, you might assume this treatment is uncomfortable. Thankfully, nothing could be further from the truth! The MMS energy entirely bypasses the receptors in the skin, so there is no discomfort there. The contractions themselves aren’t said to be uncomfortable, either. Patients quickly get used to them and often spend the session reading or using a mobile device. The contractions can also be adjusted to match your comfort level as needed. Afterward, you’ll feel just as if you’ve had a good exercise session at the gym and should treat yourself as you would after a hard workout.
How long does a CoolTone treatment take?
Each CoolTone session lasts about 30 minutes. An appointment may last longer if you choose to combine various treatments, such as CoolSculpting, or wish to treat more than one area at a time.
What results should I expect with CoolTone?
The results of CoolTone™ can be dramatic; however, it’s important to note that individual results can vary, and multiple treatments may be required for ideal results. After just a few treatment sessions, you could notice stronger muscles and a leaner look in your treatment areas. Because the muscles are using so much energy, they also kill off fat cells in the area, which are naturally and gradually absorbed and flushed away by the body’s own systems.
It takes time for the full effects to build, but once they do, you should see a real difference. In clinical trials, 91% of patients saw a dramatic improvement in appearance, and 92% were satisfied with their results.
How do I maintain CoolTone results?
This isn’t a weight loss treatment. It’s a body contouring treatment designed to help those who already live a healthy lifestyle. The best way to keep your results is with regular exercise, particularly muscle-strengthening exercises, and a good diet. Maintenance sessions as needed can also help you stay looking your best.
How long does it take to start to see my CoolTone results?
Many people who undergo CoolTone treatment begin to see results in less than a month. It takes a few weeks just to break down muscle tissue and begin to rebuild it tighter and firmer and more sculpted than before. While the improvements may start to appear after just 2 weeks, they continue to intensify for up to 6 months.
Are the results of CoolTone permanent?
The results of CoolTone can be permanent, just like your diet and exercise habits can achieve lasting improvements. However, as with any type of muscle toning and body contouring, upkeep is necessary. After you achieve your desired degree of muscle toning and sculpting from your series of treatments, you may maintain your shape with healthy lifestyle habits. Many people also schedule periodic CoolTone touch-ups, seeing that one treatment is far more productive than hours in the gym.
Are CoolTone treatments painful?
CoolTone treatments are not painful. The energy that is delivered during each session bypasses the skin to target supramaximal muscle tissue. At this deep level, the effects of energy are felt more like a subtle vibration. After treatment, discomfort is no more significant than what you might experience after a strenuous workout.
