Cooltone Q & A

flexing muscles

What is Cooltone?

CoolTone is a noninvasive treatment from CoolSculpting by Allergan that stimulates your muscles with Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) technology. You can use CoolTone to tighten and firm muscles on your: 

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs

Nonsurgical CoolTone is FDA-cleared and requires no downtime or recovery. You return to your work or to the gym directly after your treatment.

How does CoolTone tighten muscles?

Normally, your brain sends signals through your nervous system to your muscles when you want to tighten or flex them. The CoolTone system works directly on the muscles themselves, bypassing the natural circuitry that might dull or diffuse a contracting signal from the brain. This more efficient approach lets the MMS technology recruit more muscle fibers during each contraction, making the contractions stronger and more effective than those you make during regular exercise.

Does CoolTone affect my skin, too?

The CoolTone applicator generates a magnetic field that creates a current when it passes through a conductive material, such as your muscles. Your skin and fat are poor electrical conductors. That’s why the CoolTone device delivers MMS directly to the muscles themselves, bypassing layers of both skin and fat.

Does CoolTone actually strengthen muscles?

The electrical pulses stimulate involuntary contractions in your muscles. Contractions are the movements that strengthen and tone your muscles. Each CoolTone treatment makes your muscles stronger, tauter, and firmer.

You don’t have to do anything to your muscles or even think about contracting. The muscle-strengthening all happens automatically. You may need a series of treatments to achieve the degree of muscle tone and strength you’d like.
