The latest addition to the Allergan body contouring portfolio of products, the CoolSculpting CoolTone, has received FDA clearance for improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of the abdominal muscles, and development for a firmer abdomen.
The CoolTone device uses magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) technology to penetrate into the muscle layers and induce involuntary muscle contractions, which the body responds to by strengthening its muscle fibres, resulting in improved muscle conditioning, according to Allergan.
CoolTone is also indicated for strengthening, toning and firming of buttocks and thighs. Allergan is now taking orders for the CoolTone device and the first units will ship early in the fourth quarter of this year.
The UK release date is yet to be confirmed.
