Now that word has begun to spread about the effectiveness of CoolSculpting®, more and more men are beginning to take advantage of its benefits. Yes, the non-invasive nature of the treatment is undoubtedly contributing to its popularity among both men and women, but it’s the results that have people running to plastic surgeons to reap the amazing benefits for themselves.
All men and women alike can be prone to stubborn fat deposits that just don’t seem to respond to a healthy diet and regular exercise routine, and that’s where CoolSculpting® comes in.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary, non-invasive, non-surgical, FDA-approved way to lose unwanted fat around your midsection, thighs, and flanks – a.k.a. your “love handles, “spare tire” or “beer belly”.
It works by freezing fat cells, which ultimately destroys them. Your body’s own lymphatic system then flushes them away naturally and safely. Don’t worry, it won’t harm any cells other than the fat cells it’s targeting!
The best part? There’s no downtime. CoolSculpting® targets only unwanted fat cells through a process known as Cryolipolysis, which is completely safe. The sensors used can actually detect if the skin is getting too cold, and if they do, the system will shut down. It’s tough on fat cells but gentle on your skin and your body.
How to know if you’re a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®
If you’re a man or a woman who’s within 30 lbs. or so of your ideal weight, in good general health and wants to tackle that bit of extra fat that just won’t seem to budge, you’re probably a good candidate for this treatment.
The treatment process is quick and easy, typically taking about an hour to complete. Once you and our practitioner have zeroed in on the area or areas to treat, you’ll relax comfortably while special handheld instruments gently draw in tissue from the targeted area and begin to work their magic. You’ll feel a cooling sensation during the first few minutes of your treatment, but that’s it! No needles, anesthesia or pain meds are required. Afterward, you can continue your daily routine, and over the course of the next 2-4 months you’ll notice the fat gradually “melts” away. Once it’s gone, it’s gone for good as long as you keep up your healthy lifestyle and don’t start overeating.
CoolSculpting® can show great results in as little as one visit, but you can discuss your goals with your practitioner who’ll help develop a treatment plan that’s personalized to your individual needs. If you’ve got a few more bulges or a bit more unwanted fat you’d like to lose, you may need to return after a few weeks for an additional treatment or two.
Worried About Side Effects?
You needn’t worry. For most people, there are no adverse effects as a result of the treatment process. A small percentage of people may feel a pinching sensation that typically disappears after the first few minutes of treatment, and some notice redness and mild bruising afterwards, but these are minor and usually resolve themselves within the space of a week or so.
