THE "EXTRA" DEFINITION YOU WANT
CoolTone™ Firms, Tightens & Tones
L&P Aesthetics is very excited to be one of the first practices in the Bay Area to bring CoolTone™, an exciting new technology to our patients. CoolTone™ uses a 1.8 Tesla magnet to stimulate muscular contraction in targeted areas such as the abdomen, buttocks and legs. The stimulus causes super maximal contractions in these muscle groups which creates tightening and muscle building.
What Is CoolTone™?
CoolTone™ is an electromagnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) system that strengthens, tones, and firms the muscles of the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. The technology is a multi-faceted approach to body contouring as it simultaneously tones the muscles, tightens the skin, and reduces fat.
How Is CoolTone™ Different Than CoolSculpting®?
Do I Need CoolTone™ If I'm Already Strong And Work-Out Often?
CoolTone uses high-frequency electromagnetic technology to stimulate muscle contractions in a manner that cannot be achieved by voluntary contractions or normal exercise. By inducing maximal muscle contractions, the device increases strength and muscle mass.
Improved blood flow and collagen structure causes the skin to become more elastic, firm, and tight. The supramaximal muscle contraction generated by the CoolTone™ device causes the muscle tissue to respond by remodeling its structure. This leads to increased muscle mass and improved muscle definition and tone even for people who work-out often.
How Do I know If I'm A Good Candidate For CoolTone™?
CoolTone™ is a treatment good for anyone who wants improved muscle tone of their core, butt and thighs. People should not get it if they have Grave’s disease, active bleeding disorders or seizure disorders. Women who are close to menstruation may find that it comes sooner or cramping is increased or intensified with CoolTone™ treatments, therefore it is recommended to not undergo treatment during this time of the month.
Are There Any Side-Effects With CoolTone™?
There are very few side-effects. Patients sometimes report temporary muscular pain, temporary muscle spasm, temporary joint or tendon pain, and local erythema or skin redness.
