One of the things that I am most excited about in the cosmetic surgery world today is how the stigma of men having cosmetic procedures is starting to collapse. For years, there was a certain societal pressure that men shouldn’t get any kind of cosmetic surgery or treatment, that these were for women only. This is, of course, absolutely ridiculous. Men can greatly benefit from cosmetic procedures, restoring the appearance and energy of youth. To address their concerns, Azul offers a number of procedures specifically designed for their unique needs. However, there are many men who just aren’t ready yet for surgery. Some may feel it is too invasive, has too long a recovery period, and that there may be a chance that others will know that they’ve had a procedure. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
Thankfully, there are now a number of non-invasive cosmetic procedures that can give you incredible results that are comparable to their surgical counterparts. Liposuction is considered the surgical standard for body contouring and the elimination of fat, but there is an incredibly effective non-surgical procedure that is absolutely perfect for men wanting to look slimmer and get rid of those pockets of fat that diet and exercise can’t seem to get rid of. That procedure is CoolSculpting®!
CoolSculpting is the #1 non-surgical method of body contouring in the world. It is well-known that fat cells are very susceptible to cold energy, that they will die off when exposed to cold temperature (while the surrounding tissue remains healthy). Utilizing a process known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting freezes and destroys fat cells in a completely non-invasive and comfortable way. We simply apply the CoolSculpting applicator to your skin, which will feel a bit like a chilly ice pack. After your treatment, you can simply walk away, knowing that you are well on your way to a slimmer physique.
Men want to look good, too
The perception that women are the only ones who want to look youthful and energetic is completely wrong. Men know exactly how their appearance can play a huge role in how people perceive them, both in their personal life and in the office. Looking a bit older can result in a huge competitive disadvantage, and if a man can do something to fix this problem, why wouldn’t he?
For example, it can be incredibly irritating to have a stubborn pouch of fat underneath your chin. This is often a genetic trait passed on from father to son. Great inheritance, huh? Using the CoolSculpting procedure, you can eliminate this fat, resulting in a more defined and commanding jawline. It’s simple, painless, and only takes a few treatments. There isn’t really any reason not to do it!
Non-invasive, with no recovery time
One of the biggest advantages of CoolSculpting is that there is absolutely no recovery time associated with the procedure. You walk into our clinic for treatment, you walk out again only an hour or so later, depending on the size of area we treat. Your skin might be a little red and sensitive for a few hours, but that’s it. All you have to do is continue your day!
Unlike liposuction, however, it can take a little while for you to see your full results. After all, we aren’t removing fat cells, we are destroying them with cold energy. It can take a few weeks for you to reabsorb these destroyed cells and eliminate them through your body’s natural processes. During this time, though, you continue to live your life while gradually losing the fat! It can take a few CoolSculpting treatments to get your desired results. This is seen as an advantage by many men, however, because the gradual nature of the results means it is less likely that anyone will know they had any treatments at all.
Gives you natural-looking results
One of the reasons that many men are reluctant to get cosmetic surgery or even non-invasive procedures is because they fear the possibility of artificial-looking results. This is actually the same reason so many people avoided cosmetic surgery throughout the 90s, as tabloids would regularly run stories about botched plastic surgery with celebrities.
Cosmetic surgery has come a long way since then, as have non-surgical procedures. CoolSculpting will give you natural-looking results that you can be proud of, it will just appear that you lost some weight over time. In fact, as your full results will take a few weeks to appear, to the outside observer, it will look like you are naturally losing the pounds! And if you really want to maximize your results, you can combine CoolSculpting with regular exercise and an excellent diet.
Pairs perfectly with other non-invasive treatments
CoolSculpting isn’t the only non-surgical treatment that we offer here at Azul. Procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers can help get rid of wrinkles and restore the appearance of youth to your face. If you have some loose skin in the areas where you’ve lost the fat, INFINI™ skin tightening can help tighten it up. And for skin texture issues, it’s hard to beat Fraxel® laser skin rejuvenation. Please feel free to ask about any and all of these procedures when you come into Azul for a consultation or your CoolSculpting treatment!
