What Is Cooltone By Coolsculpting | Sheperd Integrative Dermatology in Mount Pleasant, SC

CoolSculpting® just stepped up their game to a whole new level with the launch of CoolTone™. It’s the latest innovation for firming and improving muscle tone in the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. When you want to not only look trimmer but also stronger and ultra-toned, it’s time for CoolTone™.

What is CoolTone™?

CoolTone™  by CoolSculpting® device is FDA-cleared for toning, firming, and strengthening the muscles of the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs with zero downtime. While CoolSculpting® is designed for people looking to achieve a slimmer figure, CoolTone™ would be the logical next step and for those who are at or near their target weight, but are looking for increased muscle definition.

What is CoolSculpting® ?

The CoolTone™  device uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) to penetrate through the skin and fat layers and target only the muscle. The MMS technology induces involuntary muscle contractions more powerful and effective than contractions you can achieve on your own at the gym. To be exact, just one 30-minute CoolTone™  session produces approximately 25,000 muscle contractions. Jaw drop. That’s like doing 25,000 crunches in 30 minutes—a seeming fantasy…Achieved!

The body’s response to these contractions is to strengthen its muscle fibers, resulting in improved definition and muscle mass. And because CoolTone™  is noninvasive, there is no downtime. Following your 30 minute treatment, you get off the table and on with your day – no sweat or need to change clothes.  Boom!

What are the benefits of CoolTone™?

Before the development of CoolTone™ , body-contouring procedures involved removing excess fatty deposits on the body, either surgically with liposuction or nonsurgically with CoolSculpting®. With CoolTone™ , you can relax in our zen exam rooms while the applicator sculpts and contours your muscles, creating a tighter, more fit look for results you’ll see and feel—all in just four 30-minute sessions.

How does CoolTone™ compare to similar technologies on the market?

In a nutshell,  is the newest and most innovative devices among its leading competitors. Here are the facts: CoolTone™  has 50% more magnetic energy than other MMS devices, meaning it penetrates deeper into the muscle to produce stronger contractions and consequently better and faster results.

CoolTone™ is only at Sheperd Integrative Dermatology

Why are we so excited? Sheperd Integrative Dermatology is the first practice in South Carolina to offer CoolTone treatments. This state-of-the-art body-contouring device boosts muscle tone and definition in those hard to sculpt places that we try so very hard to target on our own.

If you’ve been frustrated by your progress in the gym and would like to give a significant boost to your hard work thus far, CoolTone™ can help you finally achieve the firm, defined look you desire. Call our office today, (843) 216-3530, and schedule a free consultation to learn how we can cater to your body’s unique needs.
