Varying based on the treatment area, Cooltone™ treatments take less than 1 hour per area. Many of our patients book back to back Zone Sessions since CoolTone works for abs, hips, and thighs.
A free consultation with Dr. Gerrish or one of our other top providers will help determine the number of treatments needed for your desired result. Pricing is per treatment area and is based on the number of treatments required.
People with excess fat or certain health conditions and medical implant devices may not be good candidates. Possible contra-indicators include metal or electronic implants, cardiac pacemakers, implanted defibrillators and neurostimulators, drug pumps, malignant tumors, hemorrhagic conditions, and epilepsy, pregnancy, nursing, menstruation, and recent surgical procedures. The only way to know for sure if CoolTone will work for you is a free, private consultation with our team at Gerrish MedEsthetics.
The best way to learn if you are a candidate for CoolTone is to come in for a consultation. However, if you are in good physical condition with a low body fat percentage and visible muscle movements, you could most likely benefit from CoolTone.
While we all would love a one and done, CoolTones does require a series of treatments. For optimal results, most people require about four treatments, within a two-week time frame. After that, maintenance is recommended every three to four months. The number of treatments you need to meet your goals will depend upon your current condition, medical history, and lifestyle. During your consultation, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan to provide you with the results you desire.
We have many patients who are not yet comfortable or allowed back into their gyms, so CoolTone has become their “exercise of choice” to keep working out the body.
Results include firmer, toned, and stronger muscles. Local fat reduction may also occur, which can help show off your newfound results. It’s recommended that patients get four CoolTone treatments to see their ideal results.
Some people report seeing noticeable muscle tone and increased ab definition one day after a full treatment cycle. As far as clinical trials go, CoolTone measured a 16% increase in muscle mass and fat reduction two months after the treatment cycle.
Keep in mind everyone and everybody is different.
The primary difference is that CoolSculpting works to eliminate fat, and CoolTone works to tone and strengthen muscles. Together, these innovative treatments can provide the transformational body contouring results you’ve been striving to achieve. Many of our patients find that combining them both helps to fast rack their results. Keep in mind one is for reducing the fat within the body and CoolTone works the muscles to tighten and tone. Think shrink. Think tight.
There are so many ways you can benefit from CoolTone! This innovative treatment can help you tone and strengthen your muscles, lift and tone your buttocks, define your abs, arms, and thighs, increase core strength for better posture, and improve your overall appearance, fitness, performance, and confidence.
CoolTone® uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) to selectively deliver strong pulses to muscle tissues in a noninvasive manner. CoolTone’s MMS technology penetrates into the muscle layers and induces involuntary muscle contractions, all in a safe and effective treatment. CoolTone® is FDA-cleared to strengthen, tone, and firm the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.
The CoolTone applicator generates a magnetic field that creates a current when it passes through a conductive material. Muscles are good conductors of magnetic fields, unlike skin and fat, which are poor conductors. The induced current is stronger in the muscle layer and the body responds to these contractions by strengthening its muscle fibers and improving muscle conditioning. The result is a stronger, firmer, and more toned abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
