If you’ve ever “pinched an inch” of excess fat somewhere on your body that seems utterly immune to your diet and exercise efforts, it’s time to learn more about body contouring.
Currently one of the hottest trends in aesthetic services, non-invasive body contouring can finally bring you the silhouette you were almost ready to give up on achieving. Body contouring treatments like CoolTone can change your shape by targeting fat in specific locations while you catch up on your emails.

Ready to learn more? We’ve gathered all of the essential info that you need to know about CoolTone’s non-invasive body contouring right here.
CoolTone Is Not the Same as CoolSculpting
The innovative company behind CoolSculpting created CoolTone. However, while both CoolTone and CoolSculpting are body contouring treatments, they’re not the same.
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis to freeze fat in targeted areas. Fat freezes at a higher temperature than skin tissue, so CoolSculpting safely freezes fat cells, effectively destroying their structure and allowing the body to remove them through the lymphatic system.
CoolSculpting is an extremely popular procedure, and patients often use it to permanently remove stubborn fat cells in areas such as on the thighs, under the chin, or in the arms.
CoolTone uses magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) — electromagnetic energy that stimulates contractions in the muscles. These contractions are more vigorous and use more muscle fibers than natural muscle contractions, so they are more effective at strengthening and toning the muscles.
CoolTone Offers Superhuman Workouts
CoolTone treatments are FDA-cleared to treat some of the most challenging areas to tone: the abs, thighs, and buttocks. One 30-minute CoolTone ab treatment is equivalent to 2,200 sit-ups. Treatments on the thighs and buttocks contract the muscles over 2,000 times in half an hour.
If you could do 2,200 sit-ups in 30 minutes, you still couldn’t achieve the results CoolTone offers.
Most people only use part of their muscles when exercising. However, CoolTone body contouring treatments activate the whole muscle at once. So CoolTone is not only like doing 2,200 sit-ups in 30 minutes, but those sit-ups are also working the muscle more effectively.
Non-Invasive Body Contouring Is Easy
Doing 2,200 sit-ups in 30 minutes sounds intense, but while the involuntary muscle contractions definitely feel different, most patients find it more comfortable than regular workouts.
The expert technicians from Chetco Medical and Aesthetics may place one or more CoolTone applicators onto your targeted area. The applicator sends magnetic signals directly through the skin and fat layers to the muscles during your treatment. The signals cause your muscle fibers to tense and relax without conscious effort.
While the sensations of the CoolTone treatments are strange, they’re more likely to make you laugh than cause any discomfort. Depending on the intensity setting, you’ll feel alternating tapping and vibrating sensations.
Our skilled team can adjust your contractions based on your current muscle strength and needs so that you can work at 100% of the stimulation or 70% to 80%. If the CoolTone contractions become uncomfortable, it’s a signal to turn it down. However, you’ll still get your workout. You’re just acclimating your body to the process.
Even though CoolTone treatments are not uncomfortable, you may experience delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) a day or two after your treatment, just like you would after any good workout.
You Can Pair CoolSculpting and CoolTone Treatments
If you’re looking for the ultimate body contouring and shaping combination, you can pair CoolTone treatments with CoolSculpting. While each of these treatments offers impressive results, patients seeking faster, more dramatic results can use these body contouring procedures to reshape the body more effectively.
Each Chetco Medical and Aesthetics patient will receive a customized treatment plan based on their needs and goals. We can offer both treatments in the same visit for those who seek the unsurpassed results of pairing CoolSculpting with CoolTone treatments.
First, patients can freeze away excess fat with a 30- to 60-minute CoolSculpting session. Then they can tone the same area with a 30-minute CoolTone treatment. In 90 minutes or less, patients can reduce fat and tone muscles without breaking a sweat!
Multiple Treatments Reap the Best Results
Achieving the best results from your CoolTone treatments usually means you’ll need more than one. However, the ideal number of sessions depends on you, your desired results, and your target treatment areas.
On average, studies saw the best results in patients targeting the abdomen or buttocks when they underwent treatments twice a week for two to four weeks, totaling four to eight sessions. After that, patients can maintain their results with touch-up treatments every three to six months.
CoolTone Offers More than Washboard Abs
CoolTone is not a replacement for exercise. Everyone needs to exercise for their overall health. However, CoolTone offers some unexpected benefits beyond just providing more definition in the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.
Patients who undergo CoolTone treatments in their abdomen achieve a tighter stomach and a stronger core, which can lessen back pain, improve posture, and provide more balance and stability.
