Non-Invasive Muscle Toning Treatment in Edina, MN

CoolTone is a fast-growing treatment used to address muscle toning. Most of us begin to notice that certain areas of our bodies lose muscle tone as early as our late twenties. While a healthy diet and exercise regimen can maintain a lean physique, our muscles may need additional stimulation as we age. CoolTone™ by CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared device that uses deep magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) to reach the muscle layer and create muscular contractions. These strengthened fibers give the appearance of stronger, firmer, and more defined muscles.

If CoolTone sounds like a treatment you’d like to try, schedule an appointment at our Edina office. We can walk you through the procedure and make recommendations based on your desired results.

 

How CoolTone Works

CoolTone uses a process called magnetic muscle stimulation, or MMS for short. This stimulation sends electromagnetic energy into the muscles, which cause them to involuntarily expand and contract. This movement mimics that experienced during exercise, producing light but non-painful muscle spasms. Over time, the muscles underneath the treatment area will strengthen, becoming stronger, firmer, and more toned. CoolTone is FDA-cleared to treat three specific areas: the stomach, thighs, and buttocks.

 

What to Expect from a CoolTone Treatment

CoolTone™ is approved for the improvement of abdominal toning by strengthening abdominal muscles, which achieves a firmer abdomen. It also can strengthen, tone, and firm buttocks and thighs. For initial treatment of one area, a series of four visits is recommended over a two-week time period. At the conclusion of your initial four visits, we will recommend a maintenance visit schedule to keep your desired level of toning and muscle definition. Just like with exercise, the muscles will return to their natural state if CoolTone is not regularly delivered.

During the treatment, patients may feel muscle discomfort, temporary joint or tendon pain, and/or muscle spasms. They may also notice a red tone in the area treated directly after the procedure. These possible side effects are short-term and typically resolve quickly.

CoolTone™ has only been approved to treat three main areas (the stomach, thighs, and buttocks), which means it cannot be used in areas of the head or over the heart. Individuals with electronic or metal devices, as well as pregnant women, cannot be treated. Additionally, individuals with a latex allergy, malignant tumors, hemorrhagic conditions, epilepsy, or pulmonary insufficiency cannot receive a CoolTone treatment.
