How It Works

CoolTone works through Magnetic Muscle Stimulation or MMS technology. CoolTone uses MMS technology to penetrate through the skin and fat layers to target only the muscle layer, inducing involuntary muscle contractions. The body’s response to these contractions is to strengthen its muscle fibers, resulting in improved muscle conditioning. After treatments, the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs are firmer and have a more defined and toned appearance.


The Science Behind The Treatment

Patients looking for enhancing muscle tone and muscle definition may be familiar with other services such as TruSculpt Flex or Emsculpt in Charlottesville. However, we are pleased to offer CoolTone technology instead for several reasons. The CoolTone device has 50% more magnetic intensity than the leading competitor measured in Tesla at the point of patient contact.  By operating at a greater intensity patients can expect enhanced results when compared to these other technologies. In addition, in utilizing magnetic energy versus electrical energy, CoolTone bypasses any nerve stimulation for a very comfortable and tolerable patient experience.

Lastly, CoolTone is part of Allergan’s Brilliant Distinctions loyalty reqards program, meaning Nua patients can use points earned from Botox, Juvederm, and Coolsculpting purchases for discounts on CoolTone treatments

How to Prepare

We recommend being at or close to your ideal body weight and have already undergone CoolSculpting if fat reduction is desired first.

What to Expect

Before you arrive

Be sure to eat prior to arriving at your appointment. We encourage you to bring some items to entertain yourself during the 35 minute treatment. We have an AppleTV in our room with Netflix to watch your favorite show. You can wear whatever you desire, we will have you change into shorts and a T-shirt that we will provide.

After Treatment

After your treatment, you will be slightly sore like a nice strength or core workout. We will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions at your appointment.

What It Will Feel Like

CoolTone is not a painful treatment – it simply feels like your muscles are being engaged. Afterward, you may feel like you’ve done a good workout in the area where muscle definition is desired.

Post-procedure Care

None! However, staying healthy and active is recommended for maintaining optimal results.
