Unlike its fat-freezing counterpart, CoolSculpting, the CoolTone device claims to boost muscle definition.
device, which both builds muscle fibers and kills fat cells at the same time.
What makes CoolTone different, according to Allergan, is that it offers 50 percent more magnetic intensity than its leading competitor (aka Emsculpt), although currently, there isn’t any clinical data to back up this claim.
As of now, the CoolTone device has been FDA-cleared to help firm up muscle in three body areas: the abs, butt, and thighs. Similar to its competitor Emsculpt, you’ll need more than one go-around with the CoolTone device in order to actually see results.
More specifically, the number of CoolTone treatments you’ll need in order to notice a real difference “will depend on the person and the area being treated,” a representative from Allergan tells
. “In general, patients can expect to undergo four treatments in two weeks. Anecdotally, patients are saying they feel stronger in their core after just one treatment.
The cost for CoolTone treatments will also be subjective, as it is with all body-contouring procedures since each private practice that offers them gets to determine their own pricing method. Usually, you can expect treatments like these to set you back at least a couple thousand, although you might be able to find a bundling package that’s a bit less. In Frank’s office in Manhattan, one competitor treatment (aka Emsculpt) will cost you around $1,000, but depending on where you live you may be able to find prices as low as $750 per treatment.
If you’re looking to try CoolTone out, though, you’ll have to wait a bit longer — Allergan is currently taking orders for the device and says that the first CoolTone units will ship out to doctor’s offices toward the end of this year.
