Today’s trends have brought about a change in men’s appearances. Health and fitness has become the new lifestyle choice, and the popularity of fitted clothes is evident in both professional and social settings alike. Men of all ages are now putting more emphasis on building and maintaining a lean physique. With a little bit of research, one can easily find that the simplest way to do so is by way of increased exercise combined with small portioned, healthy eating habits. For a lot of men, this formula will work, but only to a certain extent. In all likelihood, there will come a time when a plateau is reached, and despite consistent efforts through diet and exercise, some may still be stuck with a layer of stubborn fat that simply will not go away. The most common area for this stubborn fat buildup to occur on men is in the abdomen and lower back, and unfortunately, it only gets worse with age. According to Cheryl Philips, President of the American Geriatrics Society, this happens because as men age, their testosterone and growth hormone levels fall, which decreases their muscle percentage, and ultimately slows their metabolic rate, or ability to burn calories at rest. The good news is that you can combat these stubborn fat areas with CoolSculpting®.
How it Works
Offered here at Deep Blue Med Spa, CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction procedure that uses controlled cooling to reduce stubborn fat. Here is how it works: after you and one of our physician assistants select the area or areas you want treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is administered. This cooling, which is called Cryolipolysis, targets and kills only the fat cells in your selected problem areas and in a few weeks, these fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body. For good!
What to Expect
CoolSculpting® can be used in multiple areas of the body. It can be used on the thighs, back, abdomen, “love handles,” and now there is a new CoolSculpting® applicator specifically for the neck to help reduce the appearance of the “double chin.” The procedure is virtually painless and starts with feeling pressure, suction, and then a cooling sensation. This only lasts for the first five minutes, then once the skin is numb, patients can read, check e-mails, or even take a nap! The sessions last only an hour per treatment site, with more than one treatment per area usually needed for optimal results. The most convenient part about CoolSculpting® is that you can return to normal daily activities as soon as your session is finished. Patients can see results in as little as two weeks, but generally the results are most noticeable at the two month mark.
What’s the Catch?
There is no catch! You don’t need to take any special supplements, or start a crazy new diet to maintain the results of the CoolSculpting® process. The fat cell loss is permanent, so all you need to do is eat a normal healthy diet, moderate in fats and carbohydrates to enjoy the lasting results of the procedure.
