If you haven’t heard of CoolSculpting, it's an innovative procedure that freezes stubborn fat away. Although some may consider CoolSculpting to be a treatment for women, it is used to help men reshape their physiques too. This fat reduction treatment has helped both men and women slim down areas of the body that have proven resistant to change despite diet and exercise. Women tend to be plagued with excess fat in their upper thighs, arms, and buttocks, but men have their trouble spots as well. Most men do not want to sport a dad bod, but sometimes the effects of aging leave their telltale signs in the form of excess fat on the chest (also known as "man boobs"), love handles, and a double chin.
ZO Skin Centre in Dallas, TX, offers this innovative, FDA-approved treatment for both men and women. It’s an effective option to help eliminate fat or improve the appearance of unsightly areas that need a little extra assistance. It is ideal for individuals who are at a healthy weight and happy with their fitness level despite annoying and pesky bulges of fat they wish would vanish. Patients love CoolSculpting because it works without the need for surgery or downtime. Read below as we dig deeper into how CoolSculpting works and how you can get rid of your dad bod.
Why choose CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting procedure is an innovative, in-office treatment that safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to target fat cells that reside under the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized, or frozen, and turned to liquid. Within a few weeks, your body will process the fat and get rid of the dead cells through natural elimination, leaving you with a more sculpted look. CoolSculpting has risen in popularity because of its noninvasive nature. This quick procedure is generally done in about an hour without the need for sedation, surgery, sutures, a lengthy recovery, or scarring. Unlike traditional liposuction, CoolSculpting treats the fat under the skin while leaving the top layer untouched. In about 2 – 3 months, patients will see noticeable results and a slimmer contour. During your consultation with ZO Skin Centre in Dallas, TX, one of our trained professionals will formulate a treatment plan that will best suit your aesthetic goals for your desired look.
Improving your body
Often, genetics can be a determining factor as to where the body deposits more fat, despite frequent exercise and healthy eating. Men who are close to their ideal body weight select CoolSculpting to finally get rid of the spare tire and love handles that are hanging around their midsection. This patented fat-freezing procedure can kill fat cells on men's most dreaded areas, including:
Under the chin (double chin)
Love handles or “flank fat”
Stomach area, for a more chiseled appearance
Back area, for a more “cut” look
Most patients start seeing results 12 weeks after treatment, and the good news is that CoolSculpting results are long-term!
When patients arrive at our state-of-the-art Dallas facility for their CoolSculpting treatment, one of our professional team members will explain the procedure. A gel pad and applicator are first applied to the predetermined treatment area. The applicator uses a vacuum to draw the skin and underlying fat tissue into the device. Patients often report feeling a mild pulling or pinching sensation, but there is minimal discomfort associated with CoolSculpting. The controlled cooling is then applied to the target areas, which will cause an intense feeling of cold that subsides during treatment.
After your treatment
Once the targeted areas are treated, the frozen fat cells are liquified and over time, are naturally eliminated by the body over an estimated 12-week time frame. More than one treatment may be necessary, with results that reveal a more toned and sculpted body in 2 – 3 months.
Maintaining your results
CoolSculpting destroys fat cells through a freezing process. If an individual gains weight after the treatments, the remaining fat cells may enlarge as they absorb the extra fat. Most CoolSculpting patients are pleased with their results, and research has shown they are more likely to follow a healthy diet and exercise program to maintain their results.
