Is your body in pretty good shape, except for a flabby spot or two? Would you like to get rid of those trouble zones once and for all and enjoy a more sculpted physique? You may be a candidate for CoolSculpting treatments at Tru-Male Medical in Oak Brook, IL. These non-invasive sessions are an easy way to achieve the body you’ve been working so hard for, without resorting to surgery.
Who Is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?
You Want To Get Rid of Stubborn Flabby Spots
If you’ve been working out and watching what you eat, but you still have areas of the body that just haven’t shaped up, this treatment could be the perfect solution.
This system won’t help you drop a lot of pounds, but it can get rid of those small pockets of fat that won’t seem to respond to diet and exercise. If you’re pretty close to achieving your ideal physique, but you need a little help getting over the finish line, this treatment can help.
You’ve Got Pinchable Fat
This treatment only works on subcutaneous fat, which is the pinchable fat that lies just below the skin. We’re talking about the jiggly fat that accumulates in love handles, the upper arms, or elsewhere on the body. Subcutaneous fat is particularly difficult to get rid of, even if you have healthy habits. The ability to eliminate stubborn subcutaneous fat is one of the reasons why this treatment is so popular.
CoolSculpting doesn’t happen with visceral fat, which is the deeper fat that forms in the abdominal cavity around your internal organs. If you’re unsure about what type of fat you have, we can diagnose it.
You’re Not Dealing With Lose Skin
Before you undergo this treatment, we’ll also need to make sure the problem is really fat, and not just lax skin masquerading as fat. Sometimes the sagging skin that develops as we get a little older can subtly change the shape of our body, and it’s easy to assume those changes are because of accumulated fat.
You Can Be Patient
This treatment delivers amazing results, but you’ll need to be patient. Depending on which part of your body we’re treating and how much of a fat reduction you’re looking for, you may need a series of treatments, each of which is spaced about a month apart. The results will be worth the wait.
You’re in Good Health
Because this treatment doesn’t involve anesthesia or invasive techniques, it’s suitable for most adult men. Men with pacemakers, a defibrillator, or certain medical conditions like bleeding disorders may not be candidates.
You Need a Convenient Approach
If you’re like most of us, you’re busy, and you don’t have the time to commit to surgery or another invasive approach. The great thing about CoolSculpting is that treatments are quick, sometimes as little as 35 minutes, and there is no downtime afterward. This is a no-hassle, no-fuss way of getting your body in shape.
What Is CoolSculpting?
This treatment uses waves of freezing energy, delivered through external applicators equipped with cooling panels, to destroy fat cells. During your appointment, you’ll be able to sit back and relax while those cooling panels do all the work. The temperature used will be cool enough to destroy fat cells, but not cold enough to harm skin or muscle in the area. Your body will then naturally flush those destroyed fats out in the weeks after treatment.
Which Parts of the Body Can Be Treated?
This treatment can be used anywhere on the body where you’ve got extra pinchable fat. The arms, back, flanks, buttocks, abdomen, and thighs can all be addressed. This treatment can even be used to get rid of the extra fullness that sometimes develops along the chin and jawline.
What Will I Feel During Treatment?
These treatments are painless and comfortable. You may experience a gentle suctioning sensation as the applicator attaches to your body, and there will be some initial coolness and numbing. But these treatments are easy and nothing to worry about. Most patients spend their time in treatment comfortably reclined, reading, napping, or catching up on email on their phones.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
After your treatment, the part of the body that was addressed should start to develop more tone and definition within three to four weeks, once your lymphatic system has been able to begin flushing those destroyed fat cells out. Your full results should be evident by the 12-week mark. Depending on what type of improvement you’re aiming for, we may recommend a series of two or more treatments.
This treatment can reduce fat in the targeted area by as much as 25 percent.
Will My Results Be Permanent?
Yes. This treatment kills off fat cells, eradicating them for good. Those fat cells will never come back. But it will still be possible to gain weight on other parts of the body, so it’s smart to stick with a healthy lifestyle after treatment to maintain your overall physique.
How Is CoolSculpting Different for Men?
Men and women tend to use this treatment on similar parts of the body. But women usually use this treatment to accentuate their curves and slim down areas of unwanted fullness. And the male patients our practice serves use this treatment to develop a physique that is slimmer and more sculpted and toned. The male patients we work with also find that this treatment can make their workouts easier and more effective.
What Advantages Does This Treatment Offer?
It Gives You Control Over Your Look
Sometimes the body just doesn’t respond the way we’d like it to. You eat healthfully, but the weight doesn’t come off in the right spot. Or maybe the tone and definition you’re seeing after all those workouts aren’t quite where you’d like it to be. This contouring treatment makes it possible to hone in on those problem spots and get rid of them completely. It gives you control over how your body is sculpted.
This is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. When you come in for your initial consultation, we’ll evaluate your body and talk with you about what you want to accomplish. Some patients want to slim down and tone up the bicep area. Others want to tackle the flank area and get rid of love handles. Once we understand your goals, we’ll formulate a custom treatment plan that ensures your best results.
Can This Be Used To Treat Male Breasts?
This can be used to treat male breasts if fat is the culprit. This treatment is not FDA-cleared for the treatment of gynecomastia, which is a condition where glands in the male breast tissue swell. However, if excess fat in the breast area is causing fullness in your breast area, this treatment can help.
What Is the Best Age for This Treatment?
This treatment works well for men of all ages. The right time to pursue treatment is whenever you’re ready to take steps to get rid of unwanted areas of fat that have been bothering you.
Can I Have Multiple Areas of Concern Treated?
Yes. It is possible to have more than one problem spot addressed during your treatments. It is also not uncommon for men to have one part of the body treated, and then like the results so much that they come back to have another part of the body addressed.
Can This Be Combined With Laser Hair Removal?
Yes. We can incorporate both CoolSculpting and laser hair removal into your treatment plan. In addition to body sculpting, men often come to us with an interest in getting rid of unwanted hair on the back or chest. We can address both of those concerns.
Is This a Safe Treatment?
This treatment has been approved by the FDA and has been safely used on many men. The technology we use is designed to offer precise cooling of the fat cells, so there will be no worry about damage to the skin or surrounding area.
It’s Time You Got Your Body to Where You Want It To Be
