CoolSculpting for Men
When it comes to beauty standards, men are just as much susceptible to body shaming as women. Men are certainly not averse when it comes to being affected by negative body image stereotypes. From labels like ‘dad bods’ to the mentions of ‘man boobs’ or ‘moobs’, men have their own set of hurdles when it comes to enhancing their appearance. And while a healthy lifestyle is key, sometimes stubborn fat pockets do bring men’s self-esteem down despite their best efforts. This is where non-surgical fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting can help.
CoolSculpting is one of the most sought-after non-invasive fat reduction procedures available in the market. This innovative body sculpting treatment uses controlled cooling technology to freeze fat cells to death. It targets fat deposits that accumulate and create stubborn bulges such as belly fat, love handles, flanks, etc.
Statistics indicate that more and more men are seeking expert cosmetic treatments across the world, with a high demand for fat reduction. Body contouring treatments constitute two of the most sought-after cosmetic surgeries for men: liposuction and male breast reduction.
Many men desire professional help for reducing stubborn bulges that resist diet and exercise. Yet, they shy away from plastic surgery due to expensive treatment bills and a lengthy recovery time. This is why CoolSculpting is quickly gaining popularity among men. Fat freezing requires no scalpels, cutting, stitching, and absolutely no downtime – making it an ideal non-surgical alternative to liposuction for both men and women.
The Physiology of Stubborn Fat
Men and women store fat differently. While women tend to house fat cells in the lower part of the body as preparation for pregnancy, men’s bodies tend to distribute more fat in the upper body. Fat cells have two receptors: Alpha-2 and Beta-2. Alpha-2 receptors tell cells to store fat for later use, while Beta-2 receptors tell them to break down and release fat for immediate use.
If a fat cell has more Alpha-2 receptors, it is predisposed to resist diet and exercise. This is where CoolSculpting takes center stage and helps men effectively reduce the total number of fat cells. Once fat cells have been eliminated, they can’t grow back. CoolSculpting gets rid of the fat cells for good.
The most popular areas of CoolSculpting for men include the double chin, the belly, love handles, and the chest.
CoolSculpting the chest
A study titled ‘Cryolipolysis for Targeted Fat Reduction and Improved Appearance of the Enlarged Male Breast’, especially measured the efficacy of CoolSculpting as a non-surgical treatment for pseudogynecomastia (moobs) and found that after 2 CoolSculpting sessions, 95% of male subjects experienced improvement in the appearance of their chest fat.
CoolSculpting for eliminating Stubborn Belly Fat
The belly area is another common trouble zone for men. This spot on the male body tends to store stubborn fat pockets that resist diet and exercise. CoolSculpting fat reduction treatment provides men with a quick, convenient way to eliminate excess body fat without any surgery.
While men tend to covet an attractive chest and pectorals, they also desire a lean, chiseled midsection. CoolSculpting provides men a way to achieve optimal fat reduction in their midsection while simultaneously contouring a lean core that they’ll be happy to show off.
This non-invasive fat reduction treatment takes effect gradually, so no one has to know if you’ve got any work done. It’s one of the main reasons behind the skyrocketing popularity of this treatment. It’s also quick, between five minutes to an hour for a session, and requires little prep beyond topical cream or high-potency aspirin. This delivers a long-lasting, natural-looking core contouring for men.
CoolSculpting for eliminating Double Chins
Double chins in men are rarely a byproduct of poor lifestyle choices. Instead, this notoriously stubborn bulge of fat is often due to various factors like age and genetics. The introduction of CoolSculpting for men allows male patients safe, non-surgical options for reducing excess fat in the submental area – chin, neck, and jowls. Clinical studies prove CoolSculpting chin and neck fat is the safest way to reduce the appearance of a double chin. One evaluation in The Journal of Clinical Dermatology found that ‘there was a statistically significant reduction in the submental fat and patients expressed high satisfaction with the treatment.’
Other studies further compounded on this evidence and found:
- 20% reduction in submental fat
- 8 out of 10 patients would recommend the treatment to their friends
- Results seen in 1-2 treatment sessions.
CoolSculpting for Reducing Love Handles
Another common treatment area for men is the love handles or flanks. The love handles are notorious for collecting stubborn fat cells. Often, male patients choose to Cool Sculpt both their flanks and abdomen at the same time for a completely transformed midsection.
Does CoolSculpting Hurt?
CoolSculpting for men is a non-invasive treatment with a high safety guarantee and a high patient tolerance rate. Individual experiences will vary as no two bodies are the same, but most patients report no pain during the treatment session. However, it is common to experience mild discomfort during the first five minutes of the procedure. During this time, one can expect to feel a pulling or tugging sensation and a cool feeling at the treatment site. However, this discomfort dissipates quickly, allowing men to sit back and relax for the remainder of the treatment.
What to expect after the treatment?
CoolSculpting results are long-term, unlike regular weight loss programs that only shrink fat cells. Cryolipolysis metabolizes fat cells and removes them from the body. The cells can never grow back or return afterward as long as one maintains a healthy lifestyle and doesn’t go through excessive weight gain again. As long as one keeps their fat gain in check, one can enjoy their CoolSculpting results forever.
