Body Tone

What is BodyTone?

Do you exercise regularly and follow a balanced diet, but are still not achieving the muscle tone that you desire? If so, BodyTone can help! The FDA-approved BodyTone device uses bio-electric energy pulses to exercise different groups of muscles to tone and prevent muscle atrophy. This is an ideal treatment for toning and strengthening weak muscles and gaining muscle mass in various areas of the body, including the abdomen, biceps, buttocks, and thighs.

This treatment works through a technique called muscle confusion, which is needed to increase muscle mass. During treatment, your specific muscle groups will be flexed and twisted, which simulates a heavy workout (equivalent to about 20,000 crunches in 30 minutes). BodyTone uses a series of waveform patterns to dramatically change the size, shape, and tone of your muscles. In most cases, the BodyTone can create up to a 30% increase in muscle growth.

Who is a Candidate for BodyTone?

Individuals who are looking to improve their body contour and muscle mass can often benefit from BodyTone treatments. Ideal candidates will have a BMI of 25 or less and be overall healthy. Be sure to let us know if you have an implanted device such as a pacemaker, as this treatment may not be a good match for you. Overall, if you are interested in this treatment and would like to learn more regarding candidacy, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.

The Treatment

During treatment, special paddles will be applied to the treatment area. When they are activated, the sensation of muscle contraction will occur. This should not be painful, but it may be intense. One treatment takes 30 minutes to complete.


Because BodyTone is non-invasive, there is no downtime required, so you can return to your regular activities as soon as you wish. However, you may experience mild soreness in the muscle group that was treated, similar to how you would feel after an intense workout. Results can be seen about 6-10 weeks after your last treatment session.

For the best results, we recommend a series of six treatments (two treatments per week for three weeks). After that, we recommend maintenance treatments every 2-6 months.
