Worrying about your man boobs won’t make them go away. To get rid of moobs, here’s what you need to know about gynecomastia and your treatment options.

There’s nothing like a great pair of breasts.

In fact, even though breasts are readily available (about half of the population has them), many people will actually pay money to see them.

Hugh Hefner understood this fact and turned it into a major media empire

But mankind’s love of breasts is not unconditional. For instance, no one has ever started a major magazine celebrating ample, shapely man boobs.

But for many men, moobs are a sad reality. They’re uncomfortable, embarrassing, and hard to get rid of. And unfortunately, Kramer’s idea of a mansiere never took off, so we can’t even get the support we want.

They’re not just annoying. Having boobs can sap the confidence out of a man.

But there has to be something you can do to get rid of those honkers, right? 

Hope is here, my buxom friend. Read on! 

What Causes Man Boobs?

Even though most cases of man boobs might look similar, there are a few different causes behind them. 

Weight Gain

The most common reason that you might appear to have breasts is due to weight gain.

Your body is constantly playing a game of calorie management. As the body burns calories through exercise or everyday exertion, it takes in calories through your food. 

Our bodies evolved during a time when those calories were not always plentiful. When you take in more calories than you need, your body stores that in fat deposits in case it needs it later. 

And as your body stores fat, it doesn’t plump up equally. There are certain spots that collect more fat than others.

Everybody gains weight differently, but generally, fat is stored in the belly, love handles, thighs, and — you guessed it — the chest.

As fat deposits settle on your chest, it starts to take the appearance of breasts.

Gynecomastia

In some cases, man boobs might not be related to weight gain at all. These moobs have a more scientific, clinical name: gynecomastia

Typically speaking, breasts consist of two parts: soft fatty tissue and firmer breast glands.

Despite surface appearances, both men and woman have breast glands. In gynecomastia, these glands become enlarged.

Often, gynecomastia is a recurring condition. One in nine male infants has “palpable breast tissue” after birth. Sometimes, this rears its ugly head during puberty, and again during old age.

Because the issue with gynecomastia is not related to the soft, fatty tissue, it has nothing to do with weight gain. There are a few different causes for it.

Hormone Imbalance

The human body creates a number of different hormones. Two of the most common are testosterone and estrogen.

While testosterone is usually considered the “male” hormone and estrogen the “female” hormone, they both occur naturally in both men and women. 

Testosterone creates reactions that are regarded as more masculine, such as facial hair, muscle growth, libido…You know, all the things that make you feel manly (Tim Allen grunting noise).

In general, men receive more testosterone than they do estrogen. But that’s not always the case. 

Your hormones may be out of balance due to a genetic condition, change in your diet, or other factors. 

If this happens, your body produces excess amounts of estrogen, which signals your dormant breast glands to wake up and start growing. And you know what that means: man boobs.

Hormone imbalance might also cause annoying skin problems.

While genetic hormone imbalance cannot necessarily be prevented, there are a few things that might contribute to hormone imbalance. 

Problems With Glands

The endocrine system is a complicated and delicate machine. There are dozens of separate glands, each dedicated to creating specific hormones and releasing them at the proper time and in the proper doses.

But if something goes wrong with those glands, it can wreak havoc on your hormones. 

Trauma to a gland can cause it to act improperly. I’m sure you’ve taken a shot to the crotch and felt like you were going to throw up. If that happens to a thyroid or your pituitary gland, it can cause similar problems.

A tumor might also grow on the gland, pressing into it and causing it to push out too much — or too little — of the hormone. 

Medication

Certain medications can cause your endocrine system to go out of whack.

The most famous is anabolic steroids. We’ve all joked about how steroids make your genitals shrink, but they can also cause gynecomastia. 

Some anti-depressants or anti-anxiety medications can also send your hormones into imbalance. 

More serious medications like chemotherapy or HIV treatments can also cause an influx of estrogen. And while you might have bigger problems than a perky pair of man titties if you need those meds, it certainly won’t help you feel better.

Alcoholism

There’s nothing wrong with gettin’ a little boozy. In fact, drinking a moderate amount of alcohol can be good for you.

But if you routinely drink to excess, you could be throwing your bodily systems into whack.

It’s not just your liver. Abundant alcohol can cause problems in your endocrine system too. Problems like hormone imbalance, and — you guessed it — moobs.

Certain Herbs

While it hasn’t been conclusively proven, a few herbs seem to contribute to gynecomastia. 

According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, tea tree oil and lavender both showed some correlation with gynecomastia in boys. 

Certain “Herb”

If you use marijuana, you might be putting yourself at risk for man titties. Some studies have shown that THC reduces testosterone.

While it’s never been conclusively proven, if you’re a male pot smoker with a pair of B-cups on your chest, it might be worth changing your lifestyle a bit.

How to Get Rid of Man Boobs 

Before you look into the solution for your moobs, you have to determine whether you’re dealing with a legitimate case of gynecomastia or if you’re just chubby.

If your man titties are just a result of your weight, it can be reversed with diet and exercise. It will take some discipline, but the results will be worth it.

If your gynecomastia is not related to weight loss, you might need to ask your doctor for a few other solutions.

They may treat it in the following ways.

Hormone Therapy

If your body is growing breasts because your body isn’t producing the right balance of hormones, you might be able to combat that through hormone therapy.

Your doctor may prescribe testosterone replacement supplements. This is absorbed the same way as the testosterone your body should be producing. 

Tamoxifen

Tamoxifen is a drug that is commonly prescribed to women with breast cancer to block estrogen. With breast cancer, estrogen can add fuel to the fire, causing more cancerous tissue to grow.

Tamoxifen can also be used to block excess estrogen in men, which can reverse gynecomastia.

Lifestyle Changes

If your man titties are a result of a lifestyle choice, such as taking steroids, smoking cannabis, or excess drinking, you can just stop doing those things.

Granted, that’s easier said than done. If it was easy to kick addiction, everyone would do it.

If you need help, find an addiction treatment center near you.

Surgery

Hormone treatment might be able to shrink your man boobs, but it might not be enough. In extreme cases, you might need a surgical option.

Like we mentioned earlier, gynecomastia is a result of an enlarged breast gland, rather than excess fat.

Your surgeon will make a small incision on your breasts. The entire breast gland will be removed, which will prevent any flare-ups later on. Depending on the size of your breasts, your surgeon may also remove excess skin. 

After surgery, your breasts will be smaller and flatter. 

You will not need any additional hormone treatment or medication with surgery. However, you will need to keep a healthy lifestyle to make sure that you don’t gain excess weight and get man boobs due to chubbiness.

A Life Free of Moobs

Man boobs can feel like a stupid problem. They’re embarrassing and can sap your confidence. But on the other hand, you feel stupid for letting them bother you so much.

But with the right treatment, you can say goodbye to your moobs and live the flat-chested, confident life you deserve.

It’s not as bad as ‘no ragrets,’ but you still need your tattoo lasered off. So how much does tattoo removal hurt? Here’s everything you need to know.

About one-third of people who have gotten tattoos say that they regret at least some of their ink. 

If you’re among them? 

We know you’re curious about what getting a tattoo removed takes. You want to know how many sessions you can expect to have, what the recovery process will look like, and even how much cash you’ll need to shell out in order to get rid of your mistake. 

Of course, your biggest question might be, “How much does tattoo removal hurt?”

Your tattoos might make you look cool, but the truth is that you’re a bit nervous about the potential pain associated with your treatments. 

In this post, you’ll learn exactly what to expect out of the laser tattoo removal process. We’ll also let you know how our services will give you the results you’ve dreamed of. 

How Much Does Tattoo Removal Hurt?

While we know that getting a tattoo certainly requires you to withstand a bit of pain, many people are concerned that the won’t be able to handle the pain of tattoo removal. 

The good news? 

Though it might not exactly be the most comfortable experience in the world, there are now less painful options when it comes to how to remove a tattoo. 

PicoWay laser is more effective at getting rid of your ink with less pain associated with traditional lasers. 

This is because it actually sends energy to the targeted area incredibly quickly – we’re talking about one trillionth of a second here. Because the laser pulses are much shorter than traditional lasers, you’ll experience much less pain. 

Plus, a topical numbing agent will also be used on your skin, to manage the pain even more. The laser actually works by breaking up the ink in the tattoo into tiny particles, which are then removed naturally through the body. 

Even better? 

The PicoWay laser works on a variety of tattoos and skin types, from multicolored ink to pigmented lesions. Depending on the size and colors of your tattoo, you may need to come in for a few laser sessions to get it removed completely. 

Still, the PicoWay laser has been proven to require fewer sessions to completely remove the tattoo than traditional lasers. 

Additionally, the PicoWay laser has an incredibly low risk for scarring after the procedure. Because the tissue in the area surrounding the tattoo is impacted by the laser, scarring can often be a concern when traditional lasers are used. 

Though scarring can still happen depending on your skin type, even if it does, it will be much less noticeable than in standard tattoo removal procedures.

Getting a Tattoo Removed: Funding Your Procedure 

Now that you can answer the question, “How does laser tattoo removal work?” 

We know that you likely also have questions about how you can fund your tattoo removal. Many people feel as though, although they’d love to be able to erase their ink, the can’t afford the costs associated with multiple tattoo removal sessions.

We understand that your goal is to remove your tattoo completely, not just fade it slightly. So, we offer a unique flat fee pricing model when it comes to our tattoo removal services.

Unlike other tattoo removal services, we won’t hit you with any hidden fees or increase the costs of multiple removal sessions. 

Instead, you’ll pay just one flat fee, and we’ll keep working with you until your tattoo has disappeared completely. 

We come up with that fee based on how large your tattoo is, where it’s located, and the colors used in your design.

Many different factors can impact the removal process, so make sure that you speak with a professional about what you can expect based on your unique tattoo. 

What to Expect After Your Tattoo Removal Treatment

We want to be sure that you have as much information as possible before you decide to get your tattoo removed. 

Now that you have a better understanding of the potential pain associated with your treatment, let’s talk about proper aftercare. 

Immediately after the session is finished, you should expect to see redness around the area where the lasers worked.

In general, this should only last for a few hours after your treatment. If you have an event or just don’t like the look of the redness, it’s safe to use makeup on the area.

Later on, the area around the tattoo will actually turn a whitish color. You may also experience a continued bit of redness, in addition to mild swelling. This is all normal. 

You and your team will come up with a specific aftercare plan for your needs after your session is finished. Make sure that you follow their instructions to the letter to ensure that everything heals as it should.

Ready to get started on erasing your mistake? 

If so, then reach out to us today to learn more about how we can help you. 

No matter how many oblique crunches you do, you won’t lose those love handles. Here’s really how to get rid of love handles and belly fat for good.

In 2017, more than 70% of Americans were either overweight or obese.

And when it comes to losing weight, there’s always one area where the fat is hardest to shift. Hundreds of obliques and thousands of sits up seem to have no effect. We just can’t lose those love handles.

This is because spot training won’t make the fat disappear. It will only strengthen the muscles underneath. 

So read on to learn how to get rid of love handles the right ways.

Healthy Eating

You earned those love handles in the first place by eating too much of the wrong types of food.

One of the most effective ways to get rid of unwanted fat is to start eating healthier. Doing this in combination with the right kinds of exercise can offer real results.

Cut Down on Sugar

Sugar is finally being recognized as a serious threat to health.

It has been linked with an increased risk of heart disease and diabetes, and there are suggestions that it may increase your risk of depression, acne and other skin conditions, and even cancer. And too much sugar has been shown to be a direct cause of weight gain.

Cutting down is easier said than done, with sugar added to a huge proportion of the things that we eat and drink. But making an effort to try and minimize your sugar intake can have a noticeable impact on your love handles.

Opt for Healthy Fats

As crazy as it sounds, not all fat is bad for you. 

Healthy fats from natural foods such as avocados, nuts, olives, and oily fish can actually help you to lose body fat. That’s because these healthy fats make you feel full, reducing the number of calories you are likely to consume. 

And as a bonus, these foods are also high in HDL cholesterol, known as “good” cholesterol. It is so-called because it helps to remove the “bad” LDL cholesterol from your system.

Increase Soluble Fiber

Foods that are rich in soluble fiber can also help you to feel full and reduce your calorie intake.

Fruits, vegetables, and beans are all great sources of soluble fiber. This is why eating oranges instead of drinking juice is a better option, as juice contains very little of the soluble fiber.

Foods high in soluble fiber are also shown to reduce cholesterol.

Exercise

Eating properly is only part of the solution.

If you want to remove the body fat that you have already built up, then you’ll need your body to burn it off. And for that, you’ll need to exercise.

Keep Moving

One of the simplest changes you can make is to keep moving throughout the day.

Many of us have jobs that involve sitting behind a desk for hours on end. This has been shown to be incredibly bad for our health. By getting up and moving around more during the day, you will be using more calories. Once you start using more than you consume, your body will begin to turn to your fat stores.

Do Cardio

The more you can get your heart pumping, the more fat you can burn.

Aim for 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise every week. Brisk walking, cycling, and swimming are all activities that would fit the bill. It is also better to do some exercise every day rather than two hours in one day with none at all for the rest of the week.

Try HIIT

High-Intensity Interval Training involves doing short bursts of exercise at really high intensity in between longer periods of much lower intensity. 

HIIT has been shown to increase your heart rate for a significant time after the session is completed, which means that the body continues to burn fat even when you have stopped exercising. Research shows that HIIT can significantly reduce body fat.

Before starting HIIT we would recommend speaking to your doctor as it is not suitable for everyone.

Fat Removal

If diet and exercise don’t seem to be working for you, then fat removal is another option.

This involves removing your body fat either via surgical procedures or even better, by causing the fat to break down inside your body. It is an effective and proven way to remove the fat causing your love handles.

Liposuction

The most common surgical fat removal procedure is liposuction.

Liposuction uses a narrow tube to suck the fat out of your body. This is an invasive procedure which means that incisions must be made in your skin so that the tube can be inserted. As the surgery is invasive, you will need to be put under anesthetic.

Not everyone is suitable for liposuction, and there are risks involved as with any form of surgery. You will likely experience pain and swelling after the procedure.

Non-Invasive Fat Removal

If invasive surgery sounds a little offputting, there are non-invasive procedures that are also effective.

These procedures work by causing the fat to break down inside the body. There are a number of different methods for how this can be done. Some procedures apply cold to fat cells, freezing them to death. Other systems use lasers or radio waves to produce the same effect.

You can also use gentle ultrasound to break down the cell walls. This method is practically pain-free. It also leaves no visible signs of treatment whatsoever, unlike the other methods. That means no bruising or swelling and no numbness.

You choose how to get rid of love handles

Now you have a number of options for how to get rid of love handles. 

If you’ve tried healthy eating and exercise with no luck, and you don’t like the idea of invasive surgery, then our non-invasive fat removal treatment could be a great choice. Gentle ultrasound technology destroys the walls of fat cells. The released fat is then naturally processed by your body.

They say tattoos are for life, but thanks to laser removal, that isn’t always the case. But how much does tattoo removal cost? Find out from this helpful guide.

45 million Americans have one or more tattoos, and 17 percent of them regret their ink. So, it’s little wonder that over the past ten years, tattoo removal clinics have increased by 400 percent

If you’re one of these individuals, you may be wondering, “How much does tattoo removal cost?” While there’s no simple answer to this question, let’s dive into your options.

Once you’ve got a better handle on your available choices, you’ll understand why laser removal remains the standard. You’ll also have a better understanding of how laser tattoo removal cost is determined.  

You’ve Got Options, But…

When it comes to tattoo removal, you’ve got options. But some are definitely much better than others. 

Your options include:

  • Surgical excision
  • Dermabrasion
  • Chemical removal
  • Laser removal

The costs associated with each technique vary. These costs include monetary considerations as well as physical impacts associated with each procedure. You also have to factor in which procedures have a proven track record. 

Let’s take a look at how each procedure works, its cost estimates, and important factors to keep in mind as you decide what’s right for you. 

Surgical Excision

Surgical excision requires cutting out a tattoo and then stitching the skin around it back together. It leaves a surgical scar and varies in cost based on the size of the tattoo and location. 

Depending on tattoo size and the complexity of the removal, it may even require a skin graft. Surgical removal of skin is an invasive procedure, and it comes with the possibility of infection and other complications. 

Small tattoo removal surgeries start at $1,000. This gets you a simple office procedure using local anesthesia. More complicated tattoo removals requiring extensive skin removal, anesthesia, and skin grafts run upwards of $10,000.

The larger the skin excision, the bigger your scar area. Your risks of infection also skyrocket.  

Dermabrasion

By far, dermabrasion causes the most damage to your skin. It results in ugly scars and is a painful procedure that’s not recommended. 

It requires sanding away the inked skin you’d like to remove, and it’s, quite frankly, a barbaric procedure. It can take months to heal and may not even produce the desired results. 

Dermabrasion can be cheaper than other tattoo removal methods. But you’ll pay for it in other ways from pain to scarring to permanently damaged skin. Side effects of dermabrasion also include bruising, swelling, infection, discoloration, and bleeding.

Like other tattoo removal methods, it takes multiple treatments to break down and remove inked areas using dermabrasion. So, even though individual treatments run in the hundreds of dollars, they add up quickly into the thousands. 

Chemical Removal

Chemical removal methods include:

  • TCA peels
  • Acid Injections
  • Glycolic acid peels
  • Creams containing hydroquinone acid or trichloroacetic acid as the active ingredient

Health care professionals strongly advise against removing tattoos using any of these techniques. Dangerous chemicals are used in the process that can render you permanently scarred or even seriously injured. 

These procedures lead to permanent skin damage like depigmentation and hypertrophic scars. What’s more, chemical techniques haven’t been shown effective in the removal of tattoo ink.

These procedures aren’t worth the cost, let alone the risks, associated with them. At best, they won’t work at all, and you’ll end up paying twice for tattoo removal. At worst, they could permanently disfigure you… with the tattoo still intact.  

Save your money and your skin when it comes to these ineffective, dangerous methods. 

Cost of Tattoo Removal with a Laser

The standard method for getting rid of unwanted tattoos remains laser removal. It’s an effective, safe procedure when done by a trained professional or dermatologist. 

On average, laser ink removal takes four to 10 treatments spread out every two to three months. Of course, there are many factors that affect how many treatments you’ll need as well as the cost.

Laser removal treatments range in price from $100 to over a $1000 per session unless you visit Med Spas such as Better Off in Encinitas who charge a reasonable flat rate. In addition, Better Off Med Spa uses the PicoWay laser removal machines can remove even the most difficult color tattoos from any skin type. These laser machines tend to help reduce the number of sessions needed and thus help reduce the cost of removing your tattoo. 

Let me know your thoughts.

Factors that Impact Laser Removal

The final price tag for tattoo removal ultimately comes down to the number of sessions that you must sit through.

How many sessions will you most likely need? This depends on factors such as the quality of the tattoo, how deep the tattoo artist deposited the ink beneath the skin, and your skin type. 

Where you live can also play an important role in the final price for your removal. Expect to pay more in major cities such as Atlanta, Chicago, New York City, and San Francisco… especially when compared to regions like the Midwest.

Besides the quality of your tattoo and your geographic location, the type of facility you choose can have an impact on the price. 

The Type of Facility

You may not know this, but you’ve got choices when it comes to the type of facility where you get your laser tattoo removal done. From dermatologist offices to medical spas, here’s a rundown of facilities that offer such procedures. 

Dermatologists

Dermatologists charge per session for laser removal of tattoos. But their prices tend to fall on the high end of the scale between $250 and $500 each treatment. And don’t expect your insurance to kick in.

Laser tattoo removal is not a covered procedure. So, get ready to pay out of pocket. Not all dermatologists perform laser procedures to remove ink, so you’ll need to do your research and call around. 

Medical Spas

Medical Spas around the country offer laser tattoo removal. These facilities are overseen by a medical doctor and boast a relaxing spa environment. Their luxurious amenities and welcoming environment make tattoo removal less intimidating. 

Medical Spas do on average four laser tattoo removal procedures each week. These removal sessions are conducted by personnel trained in a variety of state-of-the-art laser procedures. Some also employ nurses. 

Private Tattoo Removal Clinics

Private tattoo removal clinics specialize solely in laser tattoo removal. Their personnel includes medical practitioners such as nurses who are trained in tattoo removal. 

These clinics cost much less than dermatologists but still offer medically-trained staff. They offer great value for your money, but they lack the calm, peaceful environment of medical spas. 

Tattoo Shops

Before coverups, many tattoo artists recommend fading or lightening the ink you’re covering. As a result, more and more tattoo shops are investing in laser equipment to provide customers with a few sessions before beginning a new cover-up. 

Before you sit down with a tattoo artist/laser tattoo remover, however, you need to verify how and where they were trained.

Although laser tattoo removal is a safe procedure, a few sessions with an inexperienced operator can lead to damage and scarring. 

Reputable Facilities

Before beginning a laser removal protocol, get evaluated by a trained laser tattoo removal specialist. A consultation should be free. If not, then move on to another location.

During your assessment, you shouldn’t feel pressured into making any decisions on the spot such as signing an agreement or starting same-day treatments. Again, this is another red flag to watch out for. 

During an appointment with a reputable tattoo removal specialist, they’ll examine your ink. The specialist should be able to estimate how many treatments you’ll need for the desired results. They should answer questions, not try to sell procedures. 

The Kirby-Desai Scale

They’ll use the Kirby-Desai Scale to make this estimate. The Kirby-Desai Scale lets a practitioner assign numerical values to a variety of factors associated with tattoo removal. 

These factors include:

  • How much color layering is present
  • How much scarring is present
  • The amount of ink used
  • The types of colors used
  • The location on your body
  • Your skin type and color

The higher your numerical value, the more difficult tattoo removal will prove. Tattoos scoring 15 or more during this assessment are generally considered very difficult or impossible to remove. 

This scale allows practitioners to provide clients with an estimated number of sessions and a solid price.

The Kirby-Desai Scale proves accurate within two to three points. This means a good practitioner should be able to predict the number of sessions required within two to three sessions. 

Laser Tattoo Removal Tips

During your tattoo consultation, a reputable professional will discuss issues such as scarring. Many individuals with tattoos are surprised to find out that they already have scarring, the result of a heavy-handed tattoo artist. 

You’ll want to discuss the potential presence of these scars and how they could affect the removal process. It’s important to understand that you could be left with a ghost image even after the ink’s been removed. 

You also need to understand that tattoo removal is a long, expensive procedure. That way, you can make a decision you’ll feel satisfied within the long run. 

You’ll also want to discuss whether or not you have a skin type that’s more prone to scarring. Tanned or dark skin tends to scar more readily. 

Why? Because the epidural melanin takes in most of the radiation from the laser. This can lead to changes in appearance such as hyperpigmentation or skin darkening. 

To avoid scarring, make sure your laser operator uses a Q-switched laser. They don’t penetrate very deeply into the skin. What’s more, their fast pulse ensures that the surrounding skin doesn’t get damaged. 

Follow Your Medical Practitioner’s Advice

To see the best results with tattoo removal, follow your medical practitioner’s advice, whether you opt for a dermatologist or a nurse at a medical spa. After each session, make sure you follow their aftercare advice.

For example, you’ll want to avoid sun exposure to the removal area. UV rays can cause scarring as well as slow down the tattoo removal process. 

If you absolutely must go outside and can’t avoid sun exposure, use a product called Desitin. It contains zinc and will block the sun’s UV rays. Slather it across the affected area to literally block these UV rays. 

Your practitioner may also tell you to choose sunblocks instead of sunscreens. Sunscreens don’t provide the same protection as sunblocks, and they contain chemical irritants that could negatively impact healing. 

You should also avoid alcohol and anything else that could negatively affect your immune system. Instead, eat healthy foods and get lots of rest to help your body heal and promote removal of tattoo ink using your body’s natural defenses. 

Finally, many removal practitioners recommended using Aquaphor ointment or alcohol-free aloe vera gel massaged into the removal site to ease discomfort and promote healing. 

The Bottom Line…

When it comes to tattoo removal, there are no miracle creams or overnight fixes. So, steer clear of claims that are too good to be true.

And watch out for barbaric procedures such as dermabrasion or chemical removal that could leave you scarred for life. 

When it comes to tattoo removal, prepare for a long process that represents an investment of time and money. Find an experienced laser tattoo removal practitioner and schedule a free consultation. 

During the consultation, bring a list of questions to ask the operator. Make sure that they are properly trained and certified, and make sure you understand what they can and can’t do for you. 

If you feel pressured into making a decision or starting with a same-day session, then you know it’s time to move on to another facility. You should never feel pressured into making a decision. 

Ask your tattoo removal specialist how many treatments they think it’ll take to get rid of your ink. Find out how much each session will cost and if they have a policy if you end up needing more treatments than they originally estimated.
