What Can I Do to Improve My CoolSculpting Results?
Here’s how to get the most out of your body contouring treatments
If you aren’t familiar with CoolSculpting, it’s a non-invasive body contouring procedure that targets fat cells by freezing them. The fat cells then crystalize, and your body naturally (and permanently!) releases them (read: completely gets rid of them)! Science is incredible, right?
Although some patients see results within weeks of treatment, the full effects may not be visible until three months later. It’s important to remember that CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss treatment, but it can reshape your body in the areas you choose to target. To achieve the best possible outcome, some of the success depends on you. Read on for tips on how to get the most out of your CoolSculpting sessions:
Maintain your exercise routine
To achieve optimal results, it’s essential that you follow a regular exercise regimen in conjunction with your CoolSculpting treatment. Exercising consistently will help you maintain your results, and there are even specific exercises that’ll complement your treatments. Remember that CoolSculpting permanently eliminates targeted cells, but the remaining fat cells can still grow. And we don’t want that!
Eat a healthy diet
CoolSculpting is meant to work with your healthy diet and lifestyle and not in place of it (we know — you still have to put in the work!). Not sure where to start? Stay away from fad diets and focus on eating whole foods with nutritional value, like lean meats, legumes, vegetables, whole grains, monounsaturated fats, and fruits.
Schedule follow-up appointments
Attending follow-up appointments is crucial to achieving the best possible results. These appointments will help you decide if you need another treatment to achieve your desired outcome.
Follow any post-care instructions to a T
You’ll likely receive post-care instructions, and you should follow them carefully to get the best results possible. In general, it’s recommended that you avoid high, direct heat and activities that cause strain or increase your body temperature, such as heavy lifting and vigorous exercise, 24 hours following your treatment. If you have any questions, always check in with your provider.
Patience is a virtue
It may take several months to see noticeable results after a single CoolSculpting treatment. During this time, focus on maintaining a healthy lifestyle and drinking plenty of water. With dedication and perseverance, you’ll achieve your desired results in no time! Cheers to that!
Choose a reputable provider
This is stating the obvious, but selecting a reputable provider (like us!!) who is skilled and experienced in CoolSculpting treatments is crucial to ensure the success of your treatment.
