Despite being at a stable weight, following a healthy diet, and committing to regular workouts, guys are often unable to achieve their body goals.
In fact, a number of men struggle with localized fat deposits, but are not interested in a surgical procedure like liposuction.
If this is the case for you, CoolSculpting may be an excellent, non-invasive alternative. Using very cold temperatures, this FDA-approved treatment eliminates unwanted fat and slims the waistline, without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.
Keep reading to learn all about CoolSculpting for men, and what guys can expect before, during, and after their procedure.
Coolsculpting for Men–What Is It and How Does It Work?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical body contouring treatment that removes stubborn pockets of fat from the upper abdomen, lower abdomen, love handles, thighs, upper arms, back, and chin.
Through a process known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting targets and destroys subcutaneous fat cells with controlled cooling. This causes adipose tissue just below the skin to crystallize and undergo a natural cell death.
Within the next several months, the lymphatic system gradually metabolizes and clears the fat cell remnants.
What Happens Before a Coolsculpting Treatment?
Patients interested in CoolSculpting for men will have a comprehensive consultation prior to treatment. During the appointment, you will have the opportunity to share your concerns, goals, and ask any questions about the procedure.
Based on this discussion, a customized treatment plan will be developed to help you achieve optimal outcomes for a more sculpted physique.
What to Expect During CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting procedure involves suctioning fatty tissue into an applicator that offers the best anatomical fit.
As the device delivers controlled cooling to subcutaneous fat, you may feel a cold sensation. Within a few minutes, any discomfort should subside, and you can read, watch TV, or do work for the remainder of the CoolSculpting cycle.
How Long Does a CoolSculpting Treatment Take?
Treatment times can range from 35 minutes to 60 minutes, and vary based on the body part and the number of cycles.
However, DualSculpting offers a faster and more efficient procedure, as two CoolSculpting devices are used simultaneously.
The CoolAdvantage applicator, which operates at a lower temperature and takes just 35 minutes per cycle, can also streamline the process.
What Happens After a CoolSculpting Procedure?
CoolSculpting for men is a zero-downtime procedure, and all normal activities can be resumed immediately.
However, guys may experience mild and temporary bruising, swelling, soreness, cramping, and itching post-treatment.
Within four-to-six weeks, patients will begin to note a circumferential reduction and improved fit of their clothes.
Final results are typically visible after two-to-three months, with up to a 20-24 percent decrease in subcutaneous fat.
