CoolSculpting is a popular way to treat those pockets of fat that just won’t budge. The completely noninvasive body enhancement procedure uses advanced cooling technology to freeze and kill fat cells. Once treated, the fat cells are gone for good, but there are a few things you should do after treatment to make sure you get, and keep, the best results possible.
After your fat cells are treated with CoolSculpting, it will take some time for your body to process and eliminate them from your system. Once this happens, you can enjoy the results of your treatment, but this can take a couple of months. It’s important to be patient during this process and not get frustrated when you don’t see results right away. Keeping a healthy diet during this time and not obsessing over when you will see results can help you relax and enjoy daily life post-treatment.
Schedule a Follow-Up
Coolsculpting can give you noticeable results after just one or two sessions, but every patient has unique concerns, goals, and ways that their body reacts to treatment. For some individuals, you might need several spaced-out sessions to achieve optimal stubborn fat loss. You can schedule a follow-up appointment to see how your body is reacting to treatment and determine if further sessions are needed.
Maintain Your Weight
Many patients make the mistake of thinking they are safe from weight gain following treatment with CoolSculpting. Although you won’t gain weight in treated fat cells, you can still gain weight in untreated areas. If you want to maintain your slim contour, be sure to exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet.
