How does Cool Tone® work?

CoolTone® is an FDA-cleared, noninvasive treatment that uses magnetic muscle stimulation to firm, tone and even strengthen muscles. It is a procedure that is designed to help individuals achieve a more sculpted and defined appearance without surgery or downtime.

The CoolTone® procedure works by applying electromagnetic stimulation on muscles. The muscle stimulation is designed to induce powerful muscle contractions that the body could not otherwise create on its own. During treatment, you will feel a series of involuntary (deep) muscle contractions over the targeted area that will last for a few seconds followed by a period of rest.

  • For most patients, 4 to 8 treatments are recommended over the course of 2 to 4 weeks to reach their body contouring goals.
  • Maintenance treatments are recommended. Talk to Louisville Laser staff to learn more.
  • Simply follow your usual diet and exercise routine to maintain treatment results.

CoolTone® treatments are ideal for people at or near their ideal body weight, but with specific body areas that have fat deposits that don’t respond to diet or exercise. Note that CoolTone® is not intended for weight loss.

If you’ve been eating healthy and working out but still have areas in the thighs, buttocks, or abdomen that you are looking to tighten up, you may be an ideal candidate for CoolTone®.


Treating 3 Areas of the Body

CoolTone® causes involuntary contractions, which strengthen the muscle fibers in the treated area. This leads to a stronger, firmer, and more toned appearance. Treatment areas include the abdomen, glutes, and thighs.

How long does Cool Tone® take?

Each treatment typically takes 30 minutes. Most patients receive 4 to 8 treatments over the span of 2 to 4 weeks to achieve body contouring results. Over the following weeks after treatment, you’ll notice that treated areas will be more toned, firmer, and you will feel stronger.

Can I do both Cool Tone® and Cool Sculpting®?

CoolTone® is a treatment offered by the same company that developed CoolSculpting® Elite, a non-invasive fat reduction treatment we offer here at Louisville Laser.

While CoolSculpting® Elite targets unwanted fat cells, CoolTone® focuses on toning and strengthening the underlying muscles. Some people choose to combine both treatments to achieve a more comprehensive body contouring result.
