When we envision the ideal male physique, most of us tend to summon up the image of a Greek god poised on a pedestal, his flat, rock-hard abs glistening beneath a set of powerful, athletic shoulders and a sleek, muscular chest. Of course in reality, the average man faces a barrage of obstacles to achieving such bodily perfection. Genetics, aging and the modern day sedentary lifestyle can all play a role in producing a less than attractive frame. Even with a healthy diet and a rigorous exercise regimen, pockets of unwanted fat can creep into the belly, hips, thighs and waist, making an otherwise fit individual appear heavier and older than they actually are. The neck and chin are also regions where fat cells can rapidly accumulate, producing a profile that lacks definition and strength.
Body contouring for men represents the artist’s power to reform nature, to visualize a more aesthetically pleasing body and achieve it through advanced technology even the gods might envy. Today’s male cosmetic client need not resign himself to enduring love handles, potbellies or double chins. Neither is he sentenced to undergo invasive surgeries and incisions, anesthesia, liposuction or prolonged downtimes to correct these flaws. Instead, we can safely say we now live in the golden age of body contouring, when ever-evolving cutting edge techniques offer fast, pain-free results and rapid recovery.
As futuristic as its name sounds, CoolSculpting actually relies on one of the oldest elements on earth – ice. During the procedure, fat deposits are trapped between two cooling devices that bombard the fat cells with ice crystals, causing their instant demise. This process is called cryolipolysis, and it exploits the fact that fat cells freeze at a different rate than other kinds of cells. This means that while the fat cells are being destroyed, surrounding healthy skin tissue remains undisturbed and unaffected by the CoolSculpting process. While CoolSculpting is not a solution for obesity, it is an undisputed champion at slimming, toning and reshaping the torso for a more traditionally masculine physique.
Emerging as a less invasive alternative to Kybella, necklifts or liposuction, the new CoolMini applicator targets those smaller, harder-to-reach areas that CoolSculpting panels could not previously accommodate. The CoolMini is especially effective at eradicating the unfortunate condition known as a double chin, which mars the profile and prematurely ages the appearance. Other areas that respond well to the CoolMini technology are the jowls, cheeks, axilla and bra rolls. As with Coolsculpting, there are no needles, incisions, cannulas, anesthesia or extended downtimes. CoolMini clients can come in during their lunch break, undergo the procedure, and get right back to work.
