You dutifully perform crunches, glute bridges, and squats and the effort leaves you exhausted. What if we were to tell you that we can garner the same results, and all you need to do is sit back and relax? Well, that road to a well-toned body is here with our CoolTone™ system.
Our team here at Advanced Aesthetics Lopez Plastic Surgery, under the direction of Dr. Manuel Lopez, excels at helping you achieve your body-shape goals. The best part is that not every solution is surgical. A great case in point is our CoolTone system, a non-invasive technology that strengthens, tones, and firms your muscles.
Here’s a look at how CoolTone works.
The technology behind CoolTone
CoolTone relies on magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS), which penetrates the layer of fat covering your muscle to strengthen and tone the muscle tissue below.
The MMS energy passes harmlessly through the outer layers of your skin and fat because these tissues don’t conduct electricity very well. Your muscles, on the other hand, are better conductors and respond to the stimulation in the form of a contraction. As an added layer of protection, CoolTone features liquid-cooled applicators to ensure your comfort.
Why CoolTone works so well
Under normal circumstances, when you work your muscles, your brain sends a signal to your muscles to engage. With CoolTone, the signal is more direct and we’re able to reach more muscle fibers, which means you’re able to “work out” the entire muscle instead of just certain sections.
As well, we’re able to give your muscles more of a workout in less time. When we target and contract your muscles directly with CoolTone, we bypass other muscle groups for a direct and targeted workout.
Where can CoolTone be used?
CoolTone is cleared by the FDA to target those areas that can really make a difference in your body shape, including your thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. During a consultation with our team, we can help you decide if CoolTone is the right treatment for your targeted body region.
Achieving your toning goals
Most of our patients benefit from a series of CoolTone treatments, which we space out to allow time for your muscles to build and strengthen. Since the technology is non-invasive, there’s no downtime after each treatment, which means you’re free to get on with your day.
To reach your overall body-shape goals, many of our patients combine CoolTone treatments with our innovative CoolSculpting treatments, which reduce fat in the same areas that CoolTone addresses, and more.
Are there other treatment options besides CoolTone?
Yes! CoolTone isn’t the only body toning treatment available. During your consultation, ask our team about Evolve Tone as well. Our providers have years of experience providing body sculpting and will let you know which option is best for you.
