Zel September 2019 New Physician Press Release

Cooltone treatment results

Zel Skin First to Announce CoolTone™ Availabilty

The new FDA-cleared magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) device is used to strengthen, tone, and firm the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs

EDINA, Minn. (September 4, 2019) – Zel Skin & Laser Specialists, a dermatologist-directed skin care clinic with locations in Minneapolis, Edina, and Plymouth, announced today the availability of the commercial evaluation of CoolTone™ by CoolSculpting.

“We were one of very few clinics in the country invited to participate in CoolSculpting clinical trials. Now, we are one of the first clinics in the county to participate in the beta-testing program for CoolTone”, said Dr. Brian Zelickson, founder of Zel Skin & Laser Specialists.

CoolTone has received FDA-clearance for improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of the abdominal muscles, and development for firmer abdomen. CoolTone is also indicated for strengthening, toning and firming of buttocks and thighs. Through the use of magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS), the treatment induces involuntary muscle contractions to strengthen muscle fibers. Stronger muscle fibers result in a more toned and defined appearance of the area treated.

The Edina location is seeking new patients to participate and provide feedback on overall treatment experience, pricing, and results. People interested in the procedure will be evaluated to determine if they are a good candidate and must complete four treatments over the course of two weeks. Patients can schedule a consultation by calling (952) 929-8888.
