Dr. Michael Cohen is a board-certified plastic surgeon and founder of Belcara Health. He stated that Allergan selected him to launch the revolutionary new device. Over my more than 20 years of experience as a plastic surgery, I have seen great advances in the technology and tools used to reduce fat and shape the body. CoolTone(tm), however, is a game-changer. CoolTone(tm) can now provide results for patients that would normally require hours of hard work at the gym, in just minutes.
