Men are investing in their appearances with aesthetic services — over 1.3 million cosmetic procedures are performed on American men every year. Body contouring is an increasingly popular treatment as it can eliminate unwanted fat and is noninvasive, helping men get the tight, toned physique they want.
If you’ve been eating right and putting time in at the gym but still can’t shift your love handles, it’s time to consider state-of-the-art body contouring treatments such as CoolSculpting®. Our team here at SculptMD, in Shrewsbury, New Jersey, offers a comprehensive range of men’s aesthetic services and can help you look and feel your best.
What is male body contouring?
We offer the innovative CoolSculpting body contouring treatments for men. CoolSculpting is a cryolipolysis treatment — the FDA-cleared procedure applies subzero temperatures to your unwanted fat cells. The freezing temperature damages the fat cells, and then your body flushes them out with other waste products.
The most common male trouble spots are the abdomen, love handles (flanks/sides), and double chins. CoolSculpting can target these areas as well as your back, upper arms, the banana roll area under your buttocks, thighs, and bra fat.
What happens during male body contouring treatments?
Before starting any treatment, we provide a consultation to discuss your goals and expectations and examine your body to determine if it’s right for you.
When you have a body contouring treatment, you come into our welcoming and relaxing office and rest in a comfortable chair or treatment bed. We apply a gel pad to the area you want to target. It helps protect your skin and allow the freezing temperatures to penetrate your fatty tissue.
Then, we attach the applicator to your body with some straps and turn on the equipment. You will notice a cooling sensation, and your skin might become numb. Some patients report pulling or sucking feelings on the treatment area. These feelings also subside as the cold numbs your skin. When the cryolipolysis treatment is complete, we massage the area to help break down the treated fat so your body can process and remove it efficiently.
Depending on what body part you target, your treatment could be done in as little as 35 minutes. We tailor all treatment plans to address each patient’s needs.
You don’t need to take any time off to recover after a body contouring treatment. Your skin might be slightly red or blanched (white), but any discoloration is temporary and subsides quickly.
What results can I expect?
Studies show that CoolSculpting treatments can eliminate 20-25% of the targeted fatty tissue in just one treatment. Everyone responds slightly differently to treatment. Your body needs time to flush out the damaged fat cells. Some patients begin to see a difference in three months, and the full results should be evident after six months.
While body contouring eliminates stubborn fat, you can still gain weight after your treatment. So it would be best if you kept up your healthy habits like regular exercise and choosing healthy foods.
