CoolSculpting parent company, Allergan, has announced a breakthrough body toning technology: CoolTone, available at Dr. Anthony Lombardi’s surgery center in Eatontown. His was the first practice in the region to get its hands on this non surgical treatment, which was FDA cleared in June and uses magnetic muscle stimulation at a rate that’s 50 percent more intense than leading competitors. CoolTone penetrates into the muscle layers and induces involuntary contractions. The body responds by strengthening muscle fibers, resulting in improved tone in areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. A board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lombardi has been performing cosmetic procedures for over 20 years, and “is pleased offer patients the latest treatments in breast, facial, and body contouring surgery.” 32 Corbett Way, Eatontown,
