COOLTONE WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE BODY CLINIC
BUILD & TONE MUSCLE IN THE ABS, BUTT AND THIGHS
The CoolTone device is FDA-cleared for toning, firming, and strengthening large muscle groups [abdomen, buttocks, and thighs]. If you are interested in toning smaller muscles, such as in your arms or calves, check out our Emsculpt.
HOW DOES COOLTONE WORK?
CoolTone’s Magnetic Muscle Stimulation [MMS] penetrates 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, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs are firmer and have a more defined and toned appearance.
Cardiac pacemakers, cochlear implants, intrathecal pumps, implanted defibrillators, implanted neurostimulators, drug pumps, and hearing aids, over areas of the skin that lack normal sensation, and for patients with fever, malignant tumor, hemorrhagic conditions, epilepsy, recent surgical procedure application in the area of growth plate, pulmonary insufficiency, pregnancy, sensitivity or allergy to latex.
CoolTone™ should be used with caution in patients with Grave’s disease, active bleeding disorders or seizure disorders.
Women who are close to menstruation may find that it comes sooner or cramping is increased or intensified with CoolTone™ treatments.
"I went to Bay Area Dermatology because a few of the girls in my office recommend it. I had developed a really bad case of melasma on my cheeks and upper lip. When I made an appointment they had asked me if I had a preference as to who I wanted to see. I told the receptionist that I had Asian skin so if I could get someone that is familiar with treating common Asian skin issues that would be fantastic. I was scheduled an appointment with Dr. Hui.At my first meet with Dr. Hui she confirmed that I did indeed have melasma and that my next step was to start getting chemical peels 4-6 weeks apart. Wow. Holy smokes! So far I've received 3 chemical peels and the melasma is almost gone. It's at the point where I am able to cover it up with just foundation. Yippee! At my most recent appointment I received my first laser treatment with Mary. I had a 1pm appointment and was seen quickly to start the numbing process. I am one of those people that benifit from the extra time with the numbing cream so I appreciate that the ladies got me started immediately. I was so numb that I barely felt a thing. Definitely one of the easiest laser procedures I have ever done."- J.C. / Yelp / Dec 01, 2017
"Please give Dr. Welsh and her team a try and you will not regret it!!Came here only once and resolved all my skin problems!"- W.L. / Google / Dec 04, 2019
"Dr. Welsh was recommended to me by a friend 18 years ago. Once I met her, I never needed to look further. She an excellent dermatologist and more importantly, a caring and compassionate person. For the past 18 years she has always been available to treat me. She knows my skin. And, yes, she loves skin! I highly recommend her to anyone who wants a dermatologist who will take the time to listen to you. You will not be disappointed; you will wish you went sooner!"- L.L. / Yelp / Nov 11, 2019
"Dr Steven He is the best! I've visited this office in the past and have seen Dr Welsh and Dr Hui occasionally throughout the years but Dr He will be my go-to dermatologist. He was so nice, so knowledgeable and really took his time with me. Follow up call to check in with me after some Botox, felt very taken care of! Evaluated my skin and noticed things other doctors hadn't noticed, along with lots of tips and tricks at home to try, talked through a treatment plan and targeted product recommendations but not pushy at all. I learned a lot about my skin from the appointment with him. Fiancée said today that my face has been looking so flawless lately. Thanks Dr He!!"- T.Y. / Yelp / Nov 04, 2019
"I found Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology via Yelp. I made my first appointment and had to wait for a month and a half to get in which was over a year ago. I had been to so many Dermatologists, Cosmetologists, clowns, rip offs you name it, this wait was so worth!! I had melasma due to my pregnancy, very bad acne scars. When I saw Dr Austin, I bombarded her with all my bad experiences and kept asking for a chemical peel, sounds so funny now:-) She brought me back to earth and came up with a plan and took her time to explain me about my issues first and then the steps of her plan. Within a few months, my melasma was almost gone. We are still working on my acne scars but they ve almost disappeared as well. Dr. Austin is the BEST dermatologist I have ever come across by far!! She fixed all my medical skin issues and my confidence as a result. In the meantime, I moved to South bay and have been driving an hour an a half to Sf to see her!! Also, I started doing Botox and fillers with her (I am 42). This place is worth every penny! Do yourself a favor and go see Dr. Austin if you have skin issues! She is an amazing sorcerer!"- S.O. / Yelp / Nov 02, 2019
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
During your complimentary consultation, one of our body specialists will design your individual treatment plan. We typically recommend 4 treatments, scheduled 1-2 times/ week. A treatment for a single area takes approximately 30 minutes.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
CoolTone is not painful and feels similar to an intense workout, cycling through different types of strong muscular contractions for 30 minutes.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?
Tangible results can be felt (and sometimes seen!) right after your first treatment with positive results reported 2-4 weeks after the last session.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
There is no downtime with the CoolTone treatment and you can return to all normal activities immediately post treatment.
HOW DO I PREPARE?
No preparation is necessary for the CoolTone treatment, although it’s always a good idea to come to your body treatments well hydrated. Some patients report a sensation of slight muscle burn in the treatment area, as though they just completed an intense workout.
