Do you eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly only to find you still lack the muscle definition you desire?
Dr. Sutton Graham offers CoolTone, a noninvasive treatment designed to give the abs, thighs, and buttocks striking definition.
We invite patients throughout Asheville, Spartanburg, and Greenville, SC, to learn what this exciting innovation can provide...
Benefits of CoolTone
Fast TreatmentCoolTone treatments deliver noticeable results in a short period of time. The standard treatment requires six visits (30 to 45 minutes each) to our office within a span of two weeks.
Feel StrongerBecause CoolTone builds muscle, patients report feeling that their muscles feel stronger and appear more toned.
SafetyCoolTone treatments are safe when administered by an experienced medical professional. If you have struggled to gain toned abdominal, thigh, or buttocks muscles despite regular visits to the gym, CoolTone is a low-risk way to achieve the physique you have been working for.
How Does CoolTone Work?
Men and women who log several hours of gym time per week can still struggle to gain toned abs, thighs, and buttocks. Advances in body contouring technology have recently led to the development of CoolTone, an FDA-approved device that tightens abdominal muscles by using advanced (MMS)magnetic muscle stimulation.
Allergan, the company that manufactures CoolTone, is best known for its line of CoolSculpting devices. Whereas CoolSculpting kills fat cells by freezing them, CoolTone works to strengthen the underlying muscle tissue by targeting the nerve fibers that stimulate skeletal muscles.
During your treatment, a trained professional will administer electromagnetic energy to targeted areas of your body. The targeted muscles respond with involuntary contractions that strengthen the muscle fibers. This results in stronger and firmer muscles that are better defined.
What Happens during a Treatment Session?
Delivery of MMSNo anesthesia is necessary, which is a benefit that our patients love. After you are lying in a position that allows your doctor to access the treatment area, an applicator is used to deliver magnetic muscle stimulations (MMS) energy.
Muscle ContractionsThe MMS energy causes the muscles to contract. About 25,000 muscle contractions will occur during your session. We may gradually increase the strength of the MMS energy for a more thorough "workout."
Changes in Muscle TissueOver the course of a 30- to 45-minute treatment, the muscles begin to adapt and remodel. Over a series of treatments, the muscles become more defined.
Resume Your DayImmediately after treatment, you can resume any activity you feel comfortable engaging in. However, you can expect the treatment to feel as though you have completed a very intense workout.
"Dr. Graham and his staff are so caring and thorough. They truly do what is best and listen and talk through any concerns or questions that you may have." Sarah C.

Why Should I Choose the Aesthetic Center of Greenville?
Since 1990, Aesthetic Center of Greenville has established a reputation for providing excellent patient experiences while delivering the best and highest quality cosmetic surgery procedures. No matter what your body type is or how ambitious your cosmetic goals are, our facility offers a full suite of plastic surgery options to meet your needs.
Many patients report feeling stronger in their core following their first procedure. Depending on your body type and needs, you may need multiple treatments to receive optimal results. Many individuals opt for four treatments that are evenly spaced out.
Am I a Candidate for CoolTone?
During your consultation, one of our trained medical professionals will determine if CoolTone is right for you. There are three main factors to consider before recommending CoolTone:
Your GoalsThe vast majority of individuals who seek tighter abs and firmer buttocks are great candidates for CoolTone. For the absolute best results, though, you should be an active individual who is leading a healthy lifestyle involving regular exercise and a healthy diet. We will take this into account before recommending the treatment.
Body FatFat deposits can interfere with the effectiveness of CoolTone treatments since the magnetic waves need to be able to penetrate fat pockets before reaching muscles. Depending on how much fat you would ideally need to lose, CoolSculpting may be a means of reducing the tissue to achieve eligibility for CoolTone.
HealthPatients who use pacemakers are not eligible for this treatment. Certain medical conditions such as Graves' disease, as well as bleeding or seizure disorders, may also complicate candidacy for this treatment.

Can CoolTone Be Combined with Other Procedures?
Once we have taken your goals into account, we can tailor a treatment plan that combines CoolTone with procedures such as:
Tummy TuckAfter you have healed from abdominoplasty, CoolTone can complement your results by giving your abs attractive definition.
LiposuctionOnce you have eliminated unwanted fatty tissue, CoolTone can give you a look that is not only lean, but also athletic.
Thigh LiftCoolTone can give your thighs even more attractive contours once fatty tissue has been removed and skin has been tightened.
Gynecomastia SurgeryMen can experience even more masculine-looking results by complementing their enhanced chest contours with chiseled abs and triceps.
"Wonderful doctor and nurses. Everyone has been so kind and caring. Highly recommend." Marsha M.
Is CoolTone a substitute for exercise?
No. Instead, this treatment is a complement to an active lifestyle involving regular exercise. For those who have already achieved physical fitness, this treatment can work specific muscles in ways that would otherwise be very difficult, give you pronounced, athletic-looking contours.
Does it hurt?
No - instead, it will just feel like you are quickly flexing muscles in the treatment area repeatedly. In fact, some patients have experienced laughing as a side effect in reaction to the sensation, which can feel very unfamiliar at first.
