Why CoolSculpting Is Ideal for Men
With the recent boom in men’s cosmetic procedures, it is interesting to note that men express certain preferences when it comes to transforming and improving their appearance. Far more than women, men want fast results with little complication and no downtime. They want simple procedures that produce dramatic results that look absolutely natural, and they prefer treatments that are minimally invasive and leave little to no scarring.
It’s only natural then, that CoolSculpting is the preferred body contouring procedure among our male patients at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Houston, TX. CoolSculpting provides all of these advantages while delivering truly impressive results in body sculpting and can be used to treat almost any area of the body to improve definition and contouring.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a unique body contouring procedure that targets and freezes fat cells by means of cryolipolysis, an advanced cooling technology that destroys fat cells. Once treated, these fat cells are then naturally eliminated through the body’s normal elimination processes, so the procedure produces completely natural-looking, gradual results that eliminate fat cells permanently in the treated area.
What is the science behind CoolSculpting?
There are over 100 peer-reviewed publications online that address the scientific research behind CoolSculpting. The procedure has been tested for safety, clinical efficacy, and tolerability, with studies reporting the effectiveness of the treatment published in leading journals, such as Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Dermatologic Surgery. Studies have also been carried out to measure patient satisfaction, and these results have also demonstrated the efficacy and popularity of CoolSculpting.
What conditions can CoolSculpting treat?
For patients in the United States, the areas that have been approved for CoolSculpting treatment by the FDA include the abdomen, flank, thighs, submental and submandibular areas (double chin), upper arm, and back fat, as well as rolls found underneath the buttocks, known as banana rolls.
At Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, patients may choose from a wide array of CoolSculpting treatments specifically designed to eliminate fat in these common problem areas.
What are the advantages of CoolSculpting over other body contouring treatments?
The process of cryolipolysis used in the CoolSculpting procedure differs radically from other body contouring modalities. While most other methods of fat reduction and body contouring rely on necrotic cell death of fat cells produced by delivery of heat or high-intensity ultrasound, CoolSculpting uses a cooling system to break down fat from the body.
There are significant differences between heat-based fat-reduction technologies and the cryolipolysis technology used in CoolSculpting. The biggest challenges posed by heat-based systems is targeting and controlling the precise depth of delivery, and avoiding unintended damage to other tissues that may be adjacent to the layer of fat being targeted. It is also more difficult with heat-based systems to predict the efficacy of treatment.
On the other hand, the CoolSculpting cryolipolysis procedure successfully targets and eliminates fat cells only, producing a gentle and gradual reduction in the layer of fat while leaving adjacent tissue unaffected. This makes CoolSculpting a safer and more effective treatment for body contouring than all other non-surgical options.
Why do Gentlemen Prefer CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting treatments require no incisions, no anesthesia, and no downtime. In most cases, dramatic results may be achieved after a single treatment. Because the treatment also triggers collagen production, it also produces improvements to the skin’s tone and texture.
The procedure is quick and convenient, usually lasting from 1 to 3 hours depending on the extent of the treatment area. Patients may read, listen to music, work on their laptop, or just relax during the treatment session. Most patients are able to resume their regular daily activities immediately following the procedure, so you won’t have to take time off work or even skip the gym. This factor is especially popular with busy men on the go who want to take care of business as quickly and efficiently as possible without skipping a beat in their busy lives.
Enhancing the CoolSculpting procedure with Shock Wave / Z Wave
When combined with the Z Wave procedure, which breaks down fat gently through shockwave technology, CoolSculpting becomes even more effective at producing dramatic results and increasing muscular definition.
