Our professionals share advanced tips for optimizing your CoolSculpting® treatment.
#1 Drink plenty of water beforehand (more than usual).
While above normal hydration levels will have no net impact on your CoolSculpting® results, below normal hydration levels can cause targeted fat cells to become “shriveled,” which can make it harder to freeze the fat cells. So, for an optimal outcome, be sure to drink plenty of water before your next CoolSculpting® treatment.
#2 Expect a mini massage afterward to reduce swelling.
After your CoolSculpting® treatment, you can expect a mini massage to help reduce your swelling and kick start the healing process.
#3 Prepare to be uncomfortable, but not in pain.
One of the great benefits of CoolSculpting® is that it achieves maximum possible fat elimination without pain. So you can say goodbye to the myth of, “no pain no gain,” because with CoolSculpting® you can make major gains, with no pain, just a mild amount of discomfort.
#4 Don’t make any important plans afterward.
CoolSculpting® may cause your treatment area to be red and slightly swollen afterward, so it’s a good idea to plan for some social downtime after your treatment to give your body a chance to recover.
#5 Keep eating your veggies.
While CoolSculpting® is an effective way to eliminate unwanted fat, once it’s been eliminated, you will still need a strategy for keeping the pounds off. So, 1) keep eating your veggies, and 2) develop a sustainable exercise program that will ensure that you burn more calories than you consume. Smart patients recognize that CoolSculpting® is not a blank check to binge eat. Maintenance of a healthy lifestyle will be the best way to preserve your CoolSculpting® results for the long term.
