CoolTone: Body Contouring Treatment
What Is CoolTone in NYC?
CoolTone is a noninvasive body contouring device that addresses fat reduction, muscle toning, and skin tightening. 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. Depending on your area of concern, CoolTone can be used to improve muscle tone in the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and/or arms.
“I was very nervous to get something done because I have never had anything done, ever. Dr. Sachin was great! He was very calming and professional with great recommendations for natural results. I HIGHLY recommend him in every capacity.”
“Dr. Shridharani is an excellent doctor. I went to a doctor in his field in Los Angeles and needed to find someone similar in New York. I’m so glad I found him because he is a very friendly and proficient physician who has a great rapport with his patients and staff.”
How Does CoolTone Work in NYC?
The CoolTone device uses high-frequency electromagnetic energy to contour, firm, and build muscle in the area being treated. The device delivers high-frequency energy pulses to the area being treated, which induces supramaximal muscle contraction and enhances collagen structure, connective tissue, and blood circulation. Improved blood flow and collagen structure cause 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. CoolTone technology is a multi-faceted approach to body contouring treatment, it simultaneously tones the muscles, tightens the skin, and reduces fat.
What Areas of the Body Can I Treat with CoolTone?
This body contouring treatment can be used on multiple parts of the body including arms, abdomen, legs, and buttocks. At LUXURGERY, each patient is given a comprehensive assessment and Dr. Shridharani creates an individualized treatment plan based on the aesthetic goals, unique anatomy, and needs of the patient.
Is There a Scar Involved with CoolTone Treatment?
This is a NEEDLELESS and SCARLESS NONINVASIVE treatment to strengthen muscles and help your muscle definition show!
Is CoolTone Treatment Permanent?
With a healthy diet and regular exercise, CoolTone treatment will have lasting results. Patients will see results immediately after this body contouring treatment and results continue to improve for several weeks after treatment. As with muscle-building from exercise and weight training, increased muscle mass with CoolTone is not permanent but can last for 6 months or longer. To maintain the results of CoolTone, it is recommended to have periodic body contouring treatments.
What Are the Benefits of CoolTone in New York?
This body contouring treatment offers a safe, noninvasive modality with virtually no pain and zero downtime. CoolTone technology is unique in that it addresses multiple concerns within a single treatment, including skin tightening, muscle toning, and fat reduction. At LUXURGERY, a body contouring treatment (CoolTone) will require only 20-30 minutes per treatment area. The results are immediately visible and can be combined with other treatments to optimize results.
How does CoolTone compare to Emsculpt?
CoolTone is a noninvasive treatment that strengthens and builds muscle tone by delivering Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) to the area. This energy induces involuntary muscle contractions and tones and defines the muscles and appearance in the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arm areas.
Emsculpt is also a noninvasive treatment that uses high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to build muscle mass.
Both treatments tone and define the muscles in the treatment areas through electromagnetic energy that forces rapid muscle contractions, far faster than would occur naturally no matter what form of exercise the person is doing. Both treatments cause the treated muscles to contract up to 20,000 times in a 30-minute treatment.
Both treatments have been cleared by the FDA.
How is CoolTone more effective than Emsculpt?
These treatments are very similar, with one big exception. CoolTone delivers 50 percent more magnetic intensity than Emsculpt. This creates more toning in the treatment areas: the abs, buttocks, thighs, and arms.
How is CoolTone different than CoolSculpting?
These treatments are not remotely similar, other than the “cool” in their titles. CoolSculpting is the world’s most popular body-contouring procedure. It uses controlled cooling delivered down into the treatment areas. The cooling is set to the temperature at which fat cells freeze and die, but these temperatures don’t harm the adjacent skin and muscle tissue cells. The fat cells freeze and the body then pass them out through the lymphatic system over the course of the next few weeks after the treatment. CoolSculpting delivers proven fat reduction — it eliminates 24 percent of the fat cells in the treatment areas. CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure.
This body contouring treatment is made by Allergan, the same company that now owns CoolSculpting. That explains the similar name. CoolTone does not involve cooling in any way, however. Instead, CoolTone uses electromagnetic energy that passes through skin and fat layers and targets the muscles beneath. This electromagnetic energy induces tens of thousands of involuntary muscle contractions in these muscles, far more than could be achieved with exercise. These muscle contractions tone and build muscle fiber. This sculpts and firms the treatment areas. CoolTone is a muscle-toning treatment, not a fat reduction treatment like CoolSculpting.
Can CoolTone and CoolSculpting be done at the same session?
You cannot have both treatments done in the same area at the same time. But you could have CoolSculpting done on one area, say the jowls, while CoolTone is done on your abdomen. Whether this will always work depends on where you’re seeking to have these treatments done. For instance, you couldn’t have CoolSculpting done on your abdomen while having CoolTone on your buttocks only because you would need to be on your back for the CoolSculpting panels to be able to be applied to your abdomen.
How many CoolTone treatments are recommended?
To achieve the toning our patients seek, we recommend four body contouring treatments in two weeks. Your toning continues to improve for several weeks. Results can then last for six months or longer. To maintain your toning, periodic CoolTone maintenance sessions are recommended.
Are There Any Side Effects to Having CoolTone Treatment?
CoolTone is a noninvasive treatment and as such, there are virtually no side effects associated with the procedure. Immediately after treatment, some patients may experience redness or tenderness in the treated area. This typically resolves within minutes to hours.
Does CoolTone Treatment Hurt?
This body contouring treatment offers a safe, noninvasive modality with virtually no pain and zero downtime.
What is the cost of CoolTone?
Your cost depends on the area being treated. Once you come to see Dr. Shridharani for a consultation about CoolTone, he will find what areas you’re looking to tone and sculpt. At that point, we can estimate what your procedure will cost.
