As men age, it can be harder and harder to tone the body as the metabolism slows down and clings to stubborn fat. Because of this, minimally- and non-invasive body contouring is becoming a popular choice among men who want to achieve their ideal body composition, without having to go under anesthesia or endure the grueling recovery of other weight loss surgeries out there.
Here at Lowcountry Male, we offer a variety of male body contouring treatment options in order to tone your body and allow you to reach your fitness goals. Whether you’re looking to define your muscles or eliminate stubborn fat in target areas, continue reading to find out which male body contouring treatment is best for you to achieve your ideal physique.
Sculpsure is a body contouring system that reduces fat in stubborn areas such as the abdomen, back, or thighs. During the procedure, 24% of treated fat cells are destroyed, all without a single incision. Sculpsure could be a good option for you if you are at or near your ideal body weight, but are having trouble losing excess fat in specific areas.
This treatment works by delivering laser light through the top layers of skin to heat up and melt away fat cells, while simultaneously cooling the skin for comfort. Over the next 12 weeks after treatment, the damaged fat cells are eliminated via the body’s lymphatic system and are permanently unable to regenerate.
During treatment, you may experience a pain-less tingling sensation that alternates between warming and cooling the skin. The treatment only lasts roughly 25 minutes, so you can get in and out in no time.
Sculpsure doesn’t require any downtime, allowing you to quickly receive the treatment during your lunch break or in between meetings – whenever is most convenient for your schedule. Most men are able to see some results immediately, however, optimal results will be visible roughly 12 weeks post-treatment.
Subcutaneous fat, which is the visible, textured fat directly under the skin, can be especially hard to get rid of. Functioning as the padding to protect your muscles, too much of this fat can hide all of the hard work you’ve put in at the gym. The good news is Ultrashape is able to destroy this fat without causing harm to the surrounding tissue, nerves, or muscle.
Unlike Sculpsure and Velashape, this treatment does not use a heating or freezing mechanism but instead utilizes ultrasound technology to deliver pulses of energy to the targeted areas. This energy destroys the walls of fat cells in your body and releases them in the form of triglycerides, which are then processed and naturally removed from the body via the liver.
Three sessions of Ultrashape spaced two weeks apart are suggested for best results. The sessions require no downtime and do not leave any unwanted marks on the skin. It is virtually pain-free and most men report that the treatment feels comfortable.
Results can be visible as soon as two weeks after treatment and will continue to appear as the fat cells are eliminated from the body. The destroyed cells will not return to the treated area, so you can expect long-term results if you choose to go with Ultrashape body contouring.
If your body tends to store fat in stubborn areas that are resistant to your weight loss efforts, then you may want to try Velashape to tone your body. The FDA-approved system can also provide a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite, which contrary to popular belief, can affect men as well as women.
The Velashape technology works by combining infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy, and vacuum suctioning, thus causing a deep heating of the fat cells, the surrounding connective tissue, and dermal collagen fibers. This heating and vacuuming action results in increased collagen and elastin for localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and improved skin texture.
Please note: Velashape is recommended for men with a BMI of under 30 for optimal results.
Most men require 3-6 treatments depending on the physique they are looking to achieve. Velashape is generally pain-free, and the sensation can be described as comparable to a warm, deep-tissue massage. Some redness may appear briefly after treatment, however, no downtime is required, making Velashape a convenient male body contouring solution.
