It’s not too late to improve your muscle tone, strength and get in shape. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Rapaport gives us the scoop on how to do it.
In a survey conducted in 2018, it was found that only 32% of consumers worldwide are satisfied with their body shape and 53% would consider a noninvasive body contouring treatment. For those who are interested in a noninvasive option to improve muscle strength and tone in their abdomen, buttocks, and thighs, Dr. Rapaport recommends CoolTone by CoolSculpting, an Allergan company.
It’s an FDA-cleared, noninvasive body contouring option that can strengthen and tone their abdomen and glutes, also great for improving the muscle tone and firmness of buttocks, and thighs.

Women who are close to menstruation may find that it comes sooner, or cramping is increased or intensified with CoolTone™ treatments, therefore, it is recommended to not undergo treatment during this time of the month.
