What is CoolTone?
CoolTone is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) technology to tone and strengthen muscles. The treatment is intended to improve muscle definition and firmness in the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
Even the best exercise and dietary efforts don’t always yield the desired outcomes. CoolTone is similar to another popular non-invasive body contouring treatment called CoolSculpting, which uses controlled cooling to freeze and destroy fat cells.
However, if you are looking for more than fat reduction, CoolTone treatments may be perfect for you. CoolTone, instead, is not intended to reduce body fat but rather to tone and strengthen muscles in targeted areas of the body.
If you want to truly shape your body for better muscle definition and smoothness for a highly healthy, powerful, and toned appearance, CoolTone is an excellent solution. We are proud to offer this FDA-approved treatment for muscle building and toning at Williamson Cosmetic Center.
How Does CoolTone Work?
CoolTone uses advanced Active Magnetic Pulse (AMP) technology. This technology uses magnetic muscle stimulation to tone and strengthen muscles.
The device uses a magnetic field to generate electromagnetic energy, which is then delivered to the muscles through a treatment head. The magnetic field generates an electrical current within the muscle fibers, which causes them to contract.
These intense contractions are similar to those that occur during resistance training or weightlifting. However, magnetic muscle stimulation is designed to induce even more powerful muscle contractions that the body could not otherwise produce on its own.
Your provider can apply the CoolTone device to three FDA-approved areas of the body for the desired result: your abdomen, thighs, and glutes.
How Do I Know if CoolTone is Right for Me?
CoolTone may be for you if you want to have a firmer, more sculpted appearance with enhanced muscle tone in your glutes, thighs, or tummy. If this is you, it is likely that you will be a good candidate!
Those who are currently at a healthy weight and want to enhance their muscle definition respond best to CoolTone. CoolTone is not recommended for pregnant women, those with pacemakers, deep brain stimulators, metal implants, or uncontrolled seizure disorders.
This treatment is FDA-approved for treating people with healthy weight and an active lifestyle to tone their muscles for an aesthetic look. It is not a treatment for weight loss, muscle atrophy, or weakness.

How Many CoolTone Treatments Will I Need?
The number of CoolTone treatments you will need will depend on a variety of factors, including the areas being treated and your desired results. The number of sessions is typically determined by your provider during your consultation but may be extended or shortened depending on your results.
For most patients, four to eight treatments over a period of two to four weeks yield successful results. However, the number of treatments needed, and thus the amount of time required, will vary from person to person since everyone’s body is different.
What Happens During the CoolTone Treatment?
During a CoolTone treatment session, your doctor will apply a device to your skin that delivers electromagnetic energy to the underlying muscles. The electromagnetic energy generates intense muscle contractions, which can lead to an increase in muscle mass, strength, and tone.
The treatment head is positioned over the targeted muscle group, and the intensity and duration of the electromagnetic energy can be adjusted to suit the individual’s needs and goals. A typical treatment session lasts around thirty minutes.
You may feel a strong and intense sensation of muscle contractions during the procedure. For some people, results may not be immediately apparent. It can take a few treatments to reach your desired results and experience the outcome of the treatments.
What Is Recovery Like After a CoolTone Treatment?
The CoolTone treatment is in-office and outpatient. You will go home after, and most people are able to return to their normal activities immediately following the treatment.
During your consultation and after the treatment, your provider will give you instructions on how to best recover from CoolTone treatments. They will also inform you of any common side effects you may experience, like soreness in the treatment areas, similar to what one might feel after a workout.
Side effects typically subside within a day or two. Your provider may recommend that you abstain from strenuous activities for a day after treatment.
Also, your provider may ask you to avoid excessive heat or cold in the treated areas for the first twenty-four to forty-eight hours. It’s important to keep in mind that the best results are typically not seen right away.
Usually, it takes a couple of weeks and treatments for the muscle improvement to be visible. It’s always best to follow the post-treatment instructions provided by your provider to ensure the best results and minimize any potential side effects.
How Much Does CoolTone Cost?
The cost of CoolTone treatment will vary depending on a variety of factors. For example, the number of treatments you will need in order to accomplish your cosmetic goal.
Since this is a cosmetic treatment, it is not covered by insurance. At Williamson Cosmetic Center, we are here to answer any questions you may have.
