CoolSculpting for men is becoming more and more popular. It is a safe and effective method for eliminating of stubborn fat bulges without invasive procedures. It is a good alternative to liposuction because it doesn’t require downtime, it is non-invasive and it achieves great results. Men can sculpt their body areas without taking time off work or avoiding having social interactions.
CoolSculpting is based on Cryolipolysis – a groundbreaking cooling method. During the treatment. The applicator applies constant cooling to the targeted body area. The cooling penetrates underneath the skin and targets fat cells. The fat cells get frozen and can’t store fat anymore. These damaged fat cells get eliminated from the body through metabolic processes and never grow back. During the treatment, only fat cells are targeted and the surrounding tissue is left unharmed. This is because only fat cells are sensitive to low temperatures while surrounding tissue isn’t. So this way patients eliminate fat pockets on the abdomen, back or chest and finally get a better-sculped physique.
CoolSculpting treatment is FDA-approved which makes it a safe treatment for fat reduction. It has gained an excellent reputation and a lot of male patients have benefited from this treatment.
WHY ARE MEN CONSIDERING COOLSCULPTING?
The most common reasons include:
- Eliminating fat pockets on the abdomen, flanks, back, arms or thighs
- Eliminating double chin
- Addressing fat that is hidden under muscles
- Avoiding too much time for recovery like after surgery
- Eliminating male breast
CoolSculpting device has various applicators that come in different shapes and sizes. Therefore various body parts can be treated with this treatment, even the hard-reachable ones.
Double chin – The CoolSculpting device has a small applicator designed for this area of the body. Even though it is small, this applicator is very powerful and can return fine contours to the jawline and chin area. Once it freezes the fat cells that cause a double chin, and when these fat cells get eliminated from the body, men can get a more masculine-shaped jawline. The results can be seen after just 1 or 2 treatment sessions.
Love handles/flanks – these unattractive fat bulges appear on the sides of the men’s waist. They can be very persistent and don’t respond to exercising or diet. CoolSculpting is a brilliant solution for this issue – it successfully eliminates these stubborn fat deposits. After the treatment, men get a better-sculpted waist and look more attractive.
Arms – are another difficult to sculpt body area. As men get older, their upper arms start to change and once defined biceps and triceps turn into loose and flabby arms. CoolSculpting targets these fat pockets on arms and eliminates them. Since this process is gradual, it doesn’t leave the skin hanging from the arms. The skin has enough time to bounce back and the arms look nicely shaped again.
The abdomen – this is perhaps the most targeted body area with CoolSculpting. With this treatment, men can reduce belly fat and get a flat abdomen. Again, once the frozen fat cells are eliminated from the body, men get a nicely shaped abdomen.
Back – this is another body area that can accumulate stubborn fat pockets. CoolSculpting can reduce fat in the lower back or in the middle area of the back. After the treatment, men get a nicely shaped V form on their back and appear more masculine.
Good candidates for CoolSculpting are fairly fit and healthy and have stubborn fat pockets on one or two body areas that don’t respond to exercise or diet. They are close to their ideal body weight and don’t have medical conditions.
This treatment is not a weight loss procedure and can’t remove large amounts of fat – patients should keep this in mind. In the case of large areas of fat, liposuction is a more effective option.
HOW DOES COOLSCULPTING TREATMENT FEEL?
During the CoolSculpting treatment, the patient may feel mild discomfort but it is quite tolerable. This discomfort is felt in the first 5 minutes when the treatment starts. Also, the patient can feel a sensation of cooling and suction as the fat cells are getting frozen. After the treatment, the targeted area is mildly red because of the applicator. The redness usually stops after a couple of hours. Some patients may experience tenderness to touch, itching, numbness or tingling sensations but these side effects should resolve after a week.
WHAT RESULTS CAN BE EXPECTED FROM COOLSCULPTING?
The patient will notice a reduction in fat pockets after 3 weeks but the results continue to improve. The best results are seen 3 months after the last treatment sessions. The results are permanent because the destroyed fat cells can’t return.
HOW CAN COOLSCULPTING HELP WITH ENLARGED MALE BREAST OR GYNECOMASTIA?
Gynecomastia is a medical condition represented by enlarged breast tissue in men. It can be caused by hormonal imbalance, obesity or other reasons. Gynecomastia doesn’t cause serious health risks but it can make men feel embarrassed or cause some painful side effects.
CoolSculpting is a great alternative to surgery which s generally performed to address gynecomastia. This treatment can help with some cases of gynecomastia in just several treatment sessions and without downtime. Men can achieve a more masculine-looking chest and get proportional body contours. This can greatly increase their confidence.
In the case of male gynecomastia, one or both breasts appear enlarged and swollen. This happens because of enlarged glandular tissue behind the nipple which can cause male breasts to look firm or loose. Some side effects of this condition include nipple tenderness or even pain. CoolSculpting can help with this issue if:
- The male patient has mild to moderate enlarged glandular tissue
- Gynocomastia is not a cause of obesity
If gynecomastia is caused by stubborn fat in the male breast then it is called pseudo-gynecomastia and CoolSculpting is an excellent treatment in that case.
If men have excessive glandular tissue and too much fat in their breasts, then CoolSculpting is not a good option. In that case, the patient should consider having breast reduction surgery because they have more complex gynecomastia.
WHAT DOES COOLSCULPTING FOR MALE GYNECOMASTIA LOOK LIKE?
Before the treatment, the patient is first consulted with Lucia’s skin therapist. The therapist determines if this treatment is the right for the patient’s gynecomastia issues. This is done through careful examinations of the patient and discussion about his medical history. Then the therapist determines how many treatment sessions are necessary for the best results.
When the treatment starts, the therapist applies the appropriate CoolSculpting applicator to the patient’s chest. The applicator emits cold temperature to the targeted fat cells and freezes them. The patient’s body then eliminates these damaged fat cells and reveals a more masculine-looking chest.
CoolSculpting is a safe and painless treatment that lasts only 35 minutes. Since it doesn’t require any downtime it can be easily fitted into lunchbreak. After the treatment, the patient can continue with his everyday activities.
It is usually recommended to have 3-5 sessions for the best results. Once all damaged fat cells are eliminated from the body they are gone for good. The male chest appears leaner and better-contoured. If men continue with their healthy lifestyle which includes proper diet and the regular exercise they can enjoy their shaped chest for a long time.
