11 Aug European Star Grooming Editor Loves CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting isn’t just for women—Mark Smith, the grooming editor of European Star, recently discussed how effective the procedure is for his problem area. Spectrum Dermatology works with men and women of all shapes and sizes to determine if CoolSculpting is the right approach to reach their goals, and for men, one of the biggest complaints is having a little extra pudge in the belly area.
The most popular areas for CoolSculpting
The abdomen is one of the most popular areas for CoolSculpting, and treating it with this permanent* fat-freezing procedure can instantly make both men and women look slimmer and younger. According to Smith, he eats well and exercises three or four times per week, but now in his mid-40s, he’s struggled to get rid of extra belly fat. “No matter what I do, I haven’t been able to shift them [the pounds],” he says. When he heard about CoolSculpting, he booked a consultation to see if he was a good candidate for the treatment.
Are you a candidate for CoolSculpting?
The ideal CoolSculpting candidates are at or close to their goal weight but, like Smith, have trouble with certain stubborn pockets of fat. During Smith’s first treatment, he told a reporter at the Evening Standard that the first step was marking the specific areas of his stomach to treat. During the 30-minute procedure, he says he could feel a slight tugging sensation and a coolness, but it was “not too unpleasant.” He took half an hour to catch up on his emails and read a magazine. After the first area was treated, the CoolSculpting machine was moved to the next treatment area.
Smith says, “I was surprised how quickly time passed and aside from the intense cold, it was all straightforward.” He did note that after his treatment, the area was “rock solid,” but after the manual massage from the CoolSculpting administrator, it softened. That’s the first step in breaking down the frozen fat that will slowly dissolve and be absorbed by the body. Smith returned to work the next day and says he started to see results just six weeks after the first treatment. “I’m really pleased with how my stomach looks,” he says. “I would definitely recommend CoolSculpting.”
