With the rising additions of minimally invasive procedures, more men have been seeking out cosmetic help to slim down their bodies.
Last year, almost 12 million minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were performed and about one million of them were for men, a 56 percent rise from 2000. While women still account for 90 percent of all cosmetic procedures, men are quickly being pulled in by the new nonsurgical procedures. Botox has gained a large amount of popularity with men looking to fight the signs of aging, but even more surprising, they have also been showing up to slim down with the newer nonsurgical body contouring treatments and some doctors are even estimating that men are now making up nearly 40 percent of their clients for these treatments. A certain fat-freezing treatment in particular.
The Rise of CoolSculpting for Men
One of the more popular nonsurgical body-contouring treatments to hit the market is CoolSculpting, a treatment that uses Cryolipolysis – controlled cold temperatures – to literally freeze fat cells away. Many men have been turning to this treatment to help eliminate some of their problem areas such as the love handles, stubborn belly fat, and male breasts.
Men have been gravitating toward this procedure not only because there are no knives involved and little to no recovery time, but also because CoolSculpting treatments can be worked into a busy schedule. Also, since the results are gradual over two months, your friends aren’t constantly questioning whether you have even received cosmetic treatment.
As more and more nonsurgical treatments are developed, we may see a pretty significant rise in the number of men undergoing cosmetic procedures.
