When toning muscles is your goal, take yourself further with CoolTone®.

CoolTone® by CoolSculpting® in Corpus Christi, TX

Meet CoolTone®, Allergan’s latest innovation in body contouring. CoolTone® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) technology to strengthen, tone, and firm the muscles of the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.

The CoolTone® Difference.

CoolTone®’s powerful MMS technology penetrates below the fat layer to strengthen and tone muscle. The state-of-the-art system features liquid-cooled applicators. And as part of Allergan’s trusted portfolio of products, you will be eligible to earn ALLE® rewards.

What Is CoolTone®?

Despite the word “cool” in its name, CoolTone® doesn’t freeze the fat like CoolSculpting® does. Instead, it’s intended to help tone and strengthen the muscles in your body. The procedure is performed in the privacy and safety of a plastic surgery office.

The device itself looks like a box on four wheels. On top is a computer screen that allows our Certified CoolSculpting Master, Amanda to monitor and control the procedure. Attached to the box is a wand that is slowly moved along the target area of the body where the patient is trying to achieve more muscle definition.

What is CoolTone®, and How Does it Work?

  • How Does it Work?

    CoolTone® works by a process called magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS). It sends electromagnetic energy into the muscles in your body, which then causes involuntary contractions. It feels like a light, but non-painful, muscle spasm.

    The body then starts to strengthen the muscles underneath the treatment area. Over time, the muscles will become firmer, stronger, and more toned. CoolTone® is primarily intended for the improvement and strengthening of the abdominal muscles as well as toning of the thighs and buttocks.

  • CoolTone® vs. Emsculpt®

    Emsculpt® is a competing device and was released in 2018. It was one of the very first muscle-building devices on the market. While it works similarly to CoolTone®, the difference is that the latter has 50 percent more magnetic intensity (1.35 T versus 0.9 T) at the point of contact. It should also be noted that the clinical significance of the extra magnetic intensity has not yet established.

    CoolTone® is also manufactured by Allergen, the same company that owns BOTOX® Cosmetic. Allergen is a well-known medical company and spends a lot of money on the research and development of its products.

    While there is very little difference between the two products, many surgeons and their patients tend to prefer CoolTone® over Emsculpt® because of their familiarity and reputation with the Allergen brand and family of products. That’s not to say that Emsculpt® is inferior, but rather just a personal preference amongst those who have had the procedure performed.

  • What Is the Difference Between CoolSculpting® and CoolTone®?

    CoolSculpting® is another FDA-approved medical device that has been proven to help reduce fat in problem areas and is one of the most effective non-surgical fat loss treatments on the market.

    It uses extreme cold to freeze—and kill—fat cells. The human body will then naturally absorb and remove the fat cells. CoolTone®, on the other hand, uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate the muscles, which encourages them to strengthen and tone up.

    It’s entirely possible to schedule CoolTone® and CoolSculpting® in the same session. The abdomen is a very popular area to have both of these procedures performed, which can help reduce fat and build muscle without any incisions or recovery time!

  • What are the Side Effects of CoolTone®?

    There are some medical conditions where CoolTone® isn’t recommended. This is why it’s highly advisable to speak with a plastic surgeon to learn if CoolTone® is right for you. Some of the more common side effects can include temporary muscle spasms, muscular pain, localized skin redness, and temporary joint or tendon pain.

    CoolTone® is performed in an outpatient setting, and most procedures last around 30-minutes. There is no downtime after a treatment session, and the patient can leave the plastic surgery office and return to their regular daily routine.
