CoolSculpting is a thankfully fast acting treatment for trouble fat areas but just getting it done once may not be enough without some effort to maximize the results. There’s a fair amount you can do to ensure your body gets to where you want it to be after your treatment. Some of it is lifestyle, some of it may involve more treatments or consultations, but ultimately, you’ll have the body you want.
CoolSculpting’s main draw is the lack of downtime or long-term side effects of the treatment.
But it’s not always a fix all on its own. When you get a CoolSculpting treatment it’s best to supplement it without other activities and habits that will allow you to make the most out of your post-CoolSculpting experience.
Here are just a few options of efforts to put in during your post-CoolSculpting period that can help you really make the changes permanent.
CoolSculpting doesn’t work overnight. In fact, treatment may not fully show results until a few months after you’ve gotten it. That’s why it’s important to make sure your body is getting enough sleep and rest to help the cells naturally rejuvenate. Keep an active lifestyle but know your limits and supplement it with as much rest as possible and nights of full sleep to speed along the process.
As part of an overall healthy lifestyle, you should maintain a healthy diet, even after CoolSculpting. If you continue to eat poorly after your procedure, not only will it force your body to work harder on healing and rejuvenating, it can also undo the progress CoolSculpting allowed you to make. So, keep your diet balanced with vitamins and nutrients to encourage rejuvenation and keep a healthy food intake to prevent further fatty build up in treated areas.
Where Compression Garments
While there are minimal symptoms from CoolSculpting, you can still experience irritation and mild discomfort at the treatment area. As a way to combat this, try wearing compression garments beneath your clothes during the first week after the procedure. This will reduce friction and protect the sensitive area from uncomfortable contact with your clothes.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
The first thing to know is that treated areas can swell before they shrink, and bruising is common. This goes away, however. The treatment itself can take a couple weeks to as many as 3 months to take full effect and generate a noticeable difference for your body. So, patience is another huge part of the upkeep process.
Can I Continue Treatment?
Yes. You’ll likely have a follow up appointment scheduled, but you can schedule more if you’re worried about your results and monitor your progress. You can also schedule more treatments on other areas if you need to work on multiple points on your body. Keeping an eye on yourself is the smartest thing you can do, post-procedure.
CoolSculpting can transform your body and your self-confidence. Performing the right steps after the procedure can really make an impact on how well the procedure takes hold and help you on your journey of reaching your ideal body.
