What is CoolTone®?
CoolTone® is a non-surgical fat loss treatment that leaves your body more sculpted, tighter, and muscles more toned. This reliable body contour treatment offers a more natural way to strengthen and firm your abdomen, buttocks, and thighs in a pain free way!
How it works as a non-invasive treatment lies in how the treatment utilizes Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) causing your muscles to contract (like they would in an intense workout).
Sometimes training your abs, glutes, and thighs are difficult. A workout will get you sweaty and even then, muscle growth can be stubborn! However, with CoolTone®, achieving that muscle tone in all the right places is easy and sweat free. Learn more by booking a free consultation with our team of highly skilled CoolTone® providers!

Our Body Contour Reviews
"I have done one Halo/BBL with exceptional results. I have also done several series of the emsculpt neo with exceptional results. The team is professional, knowledgeable and friendly."
"The best place to get Botox, Coolsculpt or Emface™. Doctor Bukov is amazing. Highly recommend, friendly staff, clean office, and convenient parking in the building."
"I am extremely happy to have discovered Nob Hill Aesthetics for Botox. I have never had anything other than a good experience over the 4 years that I’ve been going there. The staff are super friendly and very knowledgeable, and every time I go in we always discuss what’s going to be done and whether or not I’d like something different. I also had CoolSculpting done there to remove my excess belly fat. That also had an extremely positive outcome, with no changes or complications afterward (it’s been about 1.5 years). I would highly recommend Nob Hill Aesthetics, if you’re looking for great Botox or CoolSculpting results!"
"Dr. Bukov and his team provide artful, effective aesthetic procedures with competitive pricing. They work with your budget to create a treatment plan, and they don’t hesitate to tell you when a procedure isn’t appropriate for you. Dr. Bukov has an artistic eye, and gives you results without the overdone “Orange County” look. You’ll look younger and refreshed! These two photos were taken 18 months apart. The first (hair pulled back) is before any treatment with Dr. Bukov. Notice the jowls, general facial drooping, and deep nasiolabial folds. The second is after Morpheus8, Sculptra, and Emface™. I am very happy with my results and highly recommend Dr. Bukov and his team"
"I've been going here for years and always the best treatment from the entire team. I often get compliments on my youthful looking skin. I've also had great results with Coolsculpting. Hands down, I highly recommend Nob Hill Aesthetics."
"The absolute gold standard in CoolSculpting! - in their expertise, efficiency and care. When I came here the other month, exceptional staff member Moon gave me an in-depth assessment and informed me, to the very last detail, what the process is like and what kind of results to expect. She carefully devoted all the time needed to answer any and all of my questions and concerns. The experience leading up to the treatment was warm and comfortable as I felt that the staff were looking out for my best interest and optimal outcome."
"Nob Hill has a very professional, skilled, and friendly team who deliver exceptional client service, and the treatments they offer deliver significant and lasting results. After the course of Emface™ procedures my skin looks fantastic and my face is visibly lifted and smoother. Best of all, I look like myself (not like I had something done), and I appear fresher and rested."
"Great experience getting coolsculpting here. Both my dad and I got the procedure done and are very happy with the results."

When will I see my CoolTone® results?
The timeline for seeing results from CoolTone® treatments can vary based on individual factors such as the initial condition of the muscles, the specific areas being treated, and the person's overall health and fitness level. Here's a general idea of what you can expect:
- Immediate Post-Treatment: Right after the treatment, you may not see visible changes. Some people report feeling like they've had a strenuous workout in the treated area.
- First Few Weeks: While some individuals may start noticing subtle improvements within a few weeks, significant visible changes typically take longer.
- 2-4 Weeks After Final Session: The most noticeable results usually become apparent a few weeks after the completion of a treatment series (usually after 4 sessions).
- Muscle Definition and Firmness: You can expect to see improved muscle definition and firmness in the treated areas.
- Maintenance: To sustain and enhance the results, maintenance sessions may be recommended. The frequency of these sessions varies based on individual response and goals.
- Lifestyle Factors: Engaging in regular physical activity and maintaining a healthy diet can also help prolong and improve the results.
- Depends on the Individual: The response to CoolTone® can vary. Factors like age, muscle mass, and physical condition play a significant role.
- Consultation with CoolTone® Provider: Regular follow-up appointments with your Nob Hill Aesthetics CoolTone® provider can help assess your progress and adjust the treatment plan if necessary.
How Does CoolTone® Work?
CoolTone® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment developed by Allergan, the same company behind Botox and CoolSculpting. The technology behind CoolTone® is designed to strengthen, tone, and firm the muscles in targeted areas of the body, primarily the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Here's a general description of how CoolTone® works, along with some technical details:
CoolTone® utilizes a technology called Magnetic Muscle Stimulation. This involves the use of magnetic fields to generate electric currents in the body. The magnetic field penetrates through the skin and fat layers to reach the muscle layer. This field induces involuntary muscle contractions, which are more rapid and intense than what can be achieved through physical exercise.
These intense contractions stimulate muscle fibers, leading to improved muscle conditioning and development. Over time, this results in stronger, firmer, and more toned muscles in the treated area.
Is CoolTone® Safe?
Safety and Efficacy
- FDA Clearance: CoolTone® is FDA-cleared for improving abdominal tone, strengthening abdominal muscles, and developing a firmer abdomen. It is also cleared for strengthening, toning, and firming buttocks and thighs.
- Non-Invasive and No Downtime: As a non-invasive procedure, CoolTone® requires no anesthesia, incisions, or recovery time, making it a convenient option for those seeking muscle enhancement without surgery.
What Can I Expect Before my CoolTone® Treatment?
Before your CoolTone® treatment, a non-invasive procedure aimed at strengthening and toning muscles, there are several steps and considerations to ensure you are well-prepared and informed. Here's a detailed breakdown of what to expect::
1. Initial Consultation: Discuss your aesthetic goals and determine if CoolTone® is the right treatment for you. You'll be asked about your medical history, including any contraindications.
2. Pre-Treatment Evaluation: A personalized treatment plan based on your goals will be created with your CoolTone® providers.
3. Pre-Treatment Instructions: Stay hydrated, wear comfortable clothing, eat a light meal beforehand, and ensure that your skin is free of lotions, cream, and oils.
4. Medications and Supplements: Inform your practitioner about any medications or supplements you're taking, as some may need to be paused before the treatment.
5. Setting Expectations: Your Nob Hill Aesthetics CoolTone® provider will discuss what you can realistically expect from the treatment in terms of results.
7. Procedure Explanation: You'll receive a detailed explanation of the procedure, including how it works, duration, and sensations you might experience during the treatment. Although CoolTone® is generally safe, you'll be informed about any potential risks or side effects.
By following these steps, you'll be well-prepared for your CoolTone® treatment. Always feel free to ask questions and express any concerns to your Nob Hill Aesthetic CoolTone® provider to ensure you're comfortable and informed throughout the process.

What can I expect after my CoolTone® Treatment?
After your CoolTone® treatment, a non-invasive body contouring procedure aimed at strengthening and toning muscles, you can expect a series of experiences and steps for post-treatment care. Here’s a detailed overview:
Immediately After Treatment
- Post-Treatment Sensations: Right after the session, you might feel a fatigue and soreness like that from an intense workout
- Skin Appearance: Some minor redness and warmth may be visible, but subsides quickly
- Resume Activities: You can immediately return to your daily routine. There's no required downtime.
- Hydration: Drinking water will help flush out any toxins and aid in muscle recovery
- Avoid Heat: Avoid any high heat treatments like saunas and hot tubs for a few hours after your treatment
- Muscle Soreness: Soreness will peak within the first 48 hours and Over the counter pain relief can be used, but is often not necessary
- Monitor for Side Effects: While rare, contact your CoolTone® provider if you notice any unusual or prolonged side effects.
1-3 Months Post-Treatment

- Follow-Up Sessions: If additional sessions are part of your treatment plan, they will typically be scheduled around this time.
- Stay Active: Continuing a regular exercise routine can complement the effects of CoolTone®.
- Healthy Diet: A balanced diet can also help in maintaining and enhancing the results of your treatment.
- Evaluation & Follow Up: It's a good time to evaluate the outcome with your provider and discuss if further sessions are needed.
Remember, the post-treatment experience can vary from person to person. While CoolTone® treatments are generally well-tolerated, it’s important to follow any personalized advice given by your Nob Hill Aesthetics CoolTone® provider for the best possible experience and results.
Am I a good candidate for CoolTone®?
A good candidate for CoolTone® is typically someone who is looking to enhance muscle tone and definition in specific areas of their body, such as the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. Here are some key characteristics that can make someone an ideal candidate:
- Health: Generally in good health without any medical conditions that would contraindicate the treatment.
- Implanted Medical Device: No implanted medical devices like pacemakers or defibrillators, as the Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) technology used in CoolTone® can interfere with these devices.
- Skin & Muscle Condition: No significant skin laxity or excess fat in the targeted area, as these conditions might reduce the effectiveness of the treatment.
- Contraindications: No recent surgeries in the target area.
Consulting with our certified team of CoolTone® experts™ is the best way to determine if CoolTone® is suitable for you. We can assess your individual case, taking into account your medical history, skin condition, and aesthetic goals.
