While men usually enjoy some benefits of showing their age slower than women, they don’t get to escape the slower metabolism that comes with age. Also, starting in their 30s, men will start to lose muscle mass unless they become more physically active and change their diet. Fat replaces the muscle tissue and you know how that goes. Add increased work and family demands to the picture and most men will struggle to keep off those extra pounds, especially around the waist. Fortunately, SculpSure is the solution that most men dream of.
Men Carry Weight Differently Than Women
Studies show that men and women carry more fat cells in different regions of the body. The fat distribution is as different as pears and apples. Women typically have more fat cells in the lower half of their body, such as hips and thighs. This gives them more of a pear shape. Generally, men carry their extra weight around the middle, such as their belly and “love handles.” Hence, weight gain in men resembles more of an apple shape.
No More Apple Shape, No Downtime
Fortunately, there’s a way to destroy those fat cells to prevent that apple from ever growing on the tree so to speak. SculpSure is the world’s first laser treatment cleared by the FDA to target the fat in the abdomen and flanks, which is the most common trouble areas for men. This state of the art treatment uses controlled light based technology to eliminate up to 24% of fat cells in the targeted area. And even better is that you can get these results without stopping your busy schedule. A 25 minute SculpSure treatment can be done over the course of a lunch break and you’re right back to work.
Look and Feel Great
When you consider the implications of carrying extra fat not only on how you look, but the way you feel and your overall health, it’s an extra motivation to trim down. Getting rid of extra weight around the middle can reduce back pain and puts less weight on your lower joints. Less knee and back pain can help the weight loss cycle. Also, there are studies that correlate health related risks, such as type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease, with extra abdomen fat. While you’ll feel an amazing confidence boost after melting away those fat pouches around your middle, your chances for overall heath will improve.
