There is no downtime after getting a CoolTone treatment. You will feel like you just had a very intense workout.
The electrical current induced by the CoolTone device gently flows directly into muscle and not into fat. The current flows to nearby motor nerve structures that stimulate contractions. The current gets maxed out, causing a vast range of muscle fiber contractions.
This intense external electrical stimulus is not achieved with normal exercise. CoolTone is able to “excite” the fast-twitch muscle fibers, causing maximum benefit.
What to Expect During a CoolTone Treatment?
During a CoolTone treatment, no anesthesia or drugs are needed. You can wear thin clothes or workout clothing (or we can provide disposable wear). An applicator is applied to deliver rapid pulse energy to contract the muscle tissue. Approximately 25,000 supramaximal muscle contractions will occur during a single session.
During treatment, the muscles adapt to this intensity and begin to remodel and develop muscle tissue. The process allows patients to receive natural-looking tone and contours without a surgical procedure.
One treatment session typically lasts about 30-45 minutes, during which patients usually relax. As your session progresses, we usually increase the strength of the energy as you wish. You can do a very light treatment, but we recommend a more moderate to high level for more effective results.
