Men Freeze their Fat, too!

It is widely accepted that women want to look beautiful, and today most women are very open about the lengths they go to in order to feel their best; however, many men still are not.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic PlasticSurgery, men currently account for 10% of all cosmetic treatments. Research has also shown that men tend to choose non or minimally evasive treatments where there is little to no down-time, and treatments where results appear more natural. 
It is easy to see why CoolSculpting Technology is becoming a popular choice for the male population with results that develop over time, no recovery period and proven satisfaction. Men are commonly using the procedure to eliminate the stubborn, hard to target, fat on their hips, lower abdomen and lower back.

At Germain Dermatology we treat both men and women for medical and cosmetic needs. We understand the pressure to not only look good, but to feel good, isn’t only a female concern.  Dr. Germain takes great measures to ensure each of our male patients feel as comfortable when visiting us as our female patients do.
Dr. Germain explains CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting  and DualSculpting are nonsurgical methods for healthy patients who want to target specific, stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. With fat cells being naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cooling, the cooling effect from the procedure causes crystallization of the lipids in the fat cells. The cells then begin to break down and are gradually eliminated by the body’s normal metabolic processes, over a period of two to four months. These fat cells are eliminated from your body permanently. Unlike liposuction -which also eliminates fat cells from your body- the CoolSculpting procedure doesn’t require the patient to endure surgery as there’s no cutting or needles.

The Latest at Germain: DualSculpting™

If you haven’t noticed by now we are more than thrilled to be offering DualSculpting™ at Germain Dermatology. DualSculpting™ is a simple concept- ‘Dual’ CoolSculpting™, however it is not yet widely used, and we are very excited to be the only practice in the Charleston with this cutting edge ability. With DualSculpting™ we are able to treat two areas with CoolSculpting® simultaneously, reducing treatment times in half! No need to come in twice as many times or stay twice as long for both love handles, or both thighs! 

CoolSculpting™ by Zeltiq is an FDA cleared technology that uses cold therapy to freeze and destroy fat cells permanently, no surgery required. Zeltiq uses precisely targeted cold therapy in a comfortable treatment room. Most people ask, ‘Well if you’re freezing fat, then why can’t I just put a 20-lb bag of ice on my muffin top?’, however, Zeltiq is not actually freezing the fat but taking away the energy from the fat cell, causing it to die over a period of 2-4 months. It crystallizes the lipids in the fat cells causing the slow breakdown of the cells and then is released through your body’s normal metabolic processes. It’s the painless “cool” new way to get rid of fat in specific areas. 
This process is intended for those who are at a healthy weight but just cannot seem to work off certain problem areas. Sound ‘cool’? Attend our DualSculpting™ Night on July 11th, 6pm, for live demonstrations, Q&A with Dr. Germain herself as well as appetizers and libations (*Event is free, but reservations prefered) or call us today to see if CoolSculpting™ or DualSculpting™ is right for you at (843) 881-4440.
