How To Tone Your Muscles and Strengthen Your Confidence with a CoolTone Treatment in Wayzata

You may work hard on your muscles in the gym, and a fit appearance can be an important part of maintaining your health and self-confidence. One of the best ways to enhance or improve upon existing muscles as a boost to traditional training is CoolTone®.

CoolTone treatment in Wayzata at Vively Body Science is a science-backed solution to help you tone specific muscle groups. CoolTone by CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical muscle strengthening treatment designed to help you look and feel stronger and more toned. Stronger muscles from CoolTone can give you enhanced strength, a leaner appearance, and confidence. 

At Vively Body Science, we work with treatments that we believe in and receive ourselves. Our medical spa in Wayzata, Minnesota serves community members in Wayzata, Minnetonka, in addition to Minneapolis and its western suburbs. We are physician owned and operated, and we love to help our patients feel informed about the procedures we offer near you at Vively.  

In this guide to Cooltone, we discuss the science behind CoolTone, how it works, its benefits, our treatment process, and frequently asked questions. 

How CoolTone Works | Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) 

Muscle contraction is the key to strengthening and toning your muscles. CoolTone triggers muscle using Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) technology. It strategically delivers noninvasive yet strong pulses to the muscle tissue. This impulse penetrates into the muscle layers, triggering involuntary muscle contractions. 

More specifically, the CoolTone treatment applicator generates a magnetic field. This creates a current when it passes through conductive material, and muscles are good conductors of magnetic fields (skin and fat are not). This current is strong in the muscle layer, triggering muscle contractions. 

Your body responds to the strong muscle contractions created by the MMS technology; your muscle fibers will strengthen and your muscle tone will improve. After treatment, your muscles are firmer and have a more defined appearance. You will also notice increased strength which can help you feel more active and energized.

What is toning muscle?

CoolTone derives its name from tone, which is synonymous with having strong, firm muscles. But what is toning muscle? 

In a medical sense, muscle tone is defined as the continuous and passive partial contraction of the muscles. When your muscle has tone, the muscles appear contracted, even passively (when your brain is not telling them to contract or flex). This makes the muscles look more defined, and it can even have a helpful effect on your posture and how you carry yourself. When your muscles are toned, your figure can look leaner and have more definition. 

The Benefits of a CoolTone Treatment 

Along with giving you a boost of confidence in your appearance, CoolTone has many other benefits to help you get the toned look you’ve always wanted.

CoolTone is noninvasive

Since the CoolTone procedure is nonsurgical, you don’t have to put your life on pause for a recovery period because there is little to no downtime. It is a way to tone your body with the help of safe, powerful technology. With CoolTone, you don’t need to spend countless hours at the gym to obtain a strong, toned, and active appearance.

Safe treatment

CoolTone is FDA-cleared to strengthen, tone, and firm three separate areas of the body. You can have a more toned stomach, tighter thighs, and firmer buttocks with our CoolTone treatment in Wayzata, MN. 

CoolTone’s muscle toning machine uses cutting edge technology.

The CoolTone muscle toning machine we use at Vively Body Science is top of the line industry equipment. Your results are high quality and unmatched by other treatments. 

CoolTone Treatment Areas

CoolTone is FDA-cleared to strengthen, firm, and tone your muscles in three treatment areas.


Tone your abs, obliques, and other major muscle groups in your core. A strong core can lead to better balance and posture, creating a lean and defined appearance.

CoolTone Thighs

Strengthen and tone your quadriceps (thighs). The thighs can be difficult to target with traditional exercise and are a popular body zone for CoolTone. More strength in your lower body from CoolTone gives you more power for walking, climbing, and other activities as well as lean appearing legs.

CoolTone Buttocks

Firm and strengthen muscle groups in your buttocks with CoolTone treatment in Wayzata. Toned muscle in the buttocks leads to a lifting effect, creating a toned and rounded shape.

CoolTone Treatment Process at Vively Body Science

We have a unique treatment process that we follow with each patient at Vively to ensure the best results for you.

No Cost Consultation

We always begin with a complimentary consultation with you. You’ll meet with a specialist from the Vively team to discuss your individual goals and how CoolTone can help you achieve those goals. Your specialist will examine the treatment area(s) of your body and determine if CoolTone is right for you.

Based on this initial consultation, we will create a customized treatment plan that reflects your desired results.

For your treatment, you’ll relax in our comfortable procedure room. Your Vively specialist will adjust the CoolTone settings according to your treatment plan for maximum results. 

As it works, the CoolTone device uses MMS energy to stimulate involuntary muscle contractions. This creates a stronger, toned muscle for a leaner, more defined you. 


Once your treatments are complete, you will be advised on a maintenance program that best suits you. This is typically once or twice per month, with boosts if desired. Similar to working out, the more frequent you treat, the more improved your results.
