New Body Contouring Device Receives FDA Approval

New Body Contouring Device Receives FDA ApprovalThe noninvasive body contouring market just got a little bigger!

Allergan, the maker of Botox, just received FDA approval for its device CoolTone, which strengthens and tones areas like the abdomen, buttocks and thighs.

CoolTone now joins other technologies — like CoolSculpting — that allow clients to target stubborn areas of fat with little to no downtime.

So what does this mean for you?

As these minimally invasive procedures continue to rise in popularity and new devices enter the medical aesthetics industry, businesses are looking to hire individuals who are well versed in various body sculpting techniques and cosmetic treatments.

What Is CoolTone?

CoolTone, which is manufactured by Allergan, is a noninvasive treatment that helps strengthen and tone muscles through magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS). Through this method, electromagnetic energy is shot into your muscles, causing involuntary contractions that strengthen the muscle fibers underneath the treatment area. This results in stronger, firmer and more defined muscles.

Medical aesthetics schools across the country offer training for those looking to jump-start their career in the health and beauty industry. National Laser Institute provides comprehensive training with CoolSculpting, the fat-freezing cousin of CoolTone, and other aesthetic treatments.

This one-of-a-kind fat freezing procedure can treat nine areas of the body, including the chin, abdominals and love handles. CoolSculpting also stimulates collagen production, which increases the skin’s ability to bounce back after experiencing sudden fat loss.

How To Become A Cosmetic Laser Technician

Body contouring courses are essential for anyone who wants to begin offering cosmetic procedures like CoolSculpting. The National Laser Institute provides body contouring courses where you’ll learn CoolSculpting and other body sculpting techniques to deliver safe and effective treatments to your future clients.

Each course includes classroom education and clinical practice for you to feel comfortable and confident in administering various cosmetic treatments. In the classroom, your instructor will lead discussions about topics such as the science of body contouring, why cellulite develops and body sculpting techniques. What you learn in the classroom will help prepare you for clinicals, where you will treat clients to gain real-world experience with noninvasive fat reduction procedures.

By the end of a body contouring class at National Laser Institute, you will be able to:

  • Explain the factors that lead to excess fat and cellulite development in the body
  • Understand the current nonsurgical body contouring technologies on the market, including radio-frequency energy and cooling devices
  • Explain how these modalities can be used with other treatments for optimal results
  • Understand pre- and post-treatment protocol
  • Demonstrate hands-on nonsurgical body contouring treatments
