CoolTone FAQs

The answers you’ve been searching for…

What is CoolTone?

CoolTone is a nonsurgical muscle toning procedure that works by using Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) to strengthen large muscle groups. As of 2023, it’s FDA cleared in the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs but ongoing research is happening for additional areas. CoolTone is developed and manufactured as part of the CoolSculpting portfolio and uses paddles which are placed on the body, then secured with straps over the targeted area. Once treatment starts, a large coil inside of the paddle generates a magnetic field that bypasses the sensory nerves and causes super-maximal contractions of the muscle group.

Imagine doing 20,000 perfect form squats (or crunches), without the soreness you would feel afterwards. That’s CoolTone. Amplify your workouts by pursuing a series of CoolTone treatments, scheduled 2x a week for 3-4 weeks depending on your activity level and goals.

Does CoolTone work?

Clients report feeling immediate strength after their CoolTone treatments, especially after the 4th in a series. We find CoolTone is primarily a treatment you *feel*. You feel stronger, more engaged, and more muscle endurance and tone. You may notice the results visibly as well, but expect to feel the difference from CoolTone.

CoolTone results are most visible in clients who have minimal amounts of fat. Often, clients pursue CoolSculpting Elite treatments first, then work on muscle definition and tone afterwards with a series of CoolTone treatments.

 At a free consultation, we can discuss your goals and put together an ideal recommendation that’s unique to you. 

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and CoolTone?

CoolSculpting addresses fat, while CoolTone addresses muscle. Depending on your goals, our team can help develop a unique plan to best fit your ideal outcomes. If you’re looking for more strength, to be able to stand for longer periods of time, for less back pain, or for more muscle definition and tone, CoolTone is a great treatment to consider. Alternatively, if you currently have pinchable fat or are looking to feel slimmer, CoolSculpting Elite is a great treatment that targets stubborn fat.

Neither treatment is ideal for weight loss. Both CoolSculpting Elite and CoolTone are aesthetic procedures, not covered by insurance. Ideal candidates are happy with their overall weight and body, but looking to either build muscle strength or reduce stubborn pockets of fat.

How long after CoolSculpting before I can do CoolTone?

Our protocol dictates waiting at least 6 weeks after treating an area with CoolSculpting before starting a CoolTone regimen. Alternate areas (non CoolSculpting treated areas) can be treated immediately. The reason behind waiting before CoolTone treatments begin is because of the temporary numbness that clients experience after CoolSculpting. During CoolTone treatments, your provider will ask for real-time feedback around sensation and engagement. If you have any numbness in the area, you’re unable to provide the feedback we need to get the best outcomes. 

If you’re still experiencing any numbness after your CoolSculpting treatment, we recommend postponing your CoolTone treatment.
