I’ve Tried 4 Nonsurgical Body Treatments—Here Are My Honest Thoughts
CoolTone Muscle Stimulation
What it is: Approved for use on the abdomen, thighs and butt, CoolTone stimulates involuntary muscle contractions using magnetic energy.
What it does: According to Delray Beach, FL dermatologist Dr. Janet Allenby who performs countless CoolTone treatments at her Bodysquad location, it’s the perfect complement to fat-reduction treatments like CoolSculpting. “While those treatments debulk the fat, this builds up the muscle underneath the skin. Oftentimes we’ll use multiple nonsurgical treatments to get the best results.”
What I thought: This was a game-changer for my core strength! If you don’t have a lot of excess fat it can help define your abs, but if you’re like me and have more than a few pounds to shed it will help you feel stronger, stand straighter and help alleviate back pain. I had four treatments and felt fitter than I had when I was training for half marathons. Continued treatments are recommended to keep up results long-term, but to get ready for a big event or to give your body a boost it’s useful, effective and at times can even be relaxing.
