CoolSculpting is one of the most commonly known body contouring treatments available on the market due to the efficacy of treatments and beautiful results that are regularly achieved by patients around the world. It is effective at reducing the appearance of cellulite throughout the body and eliminating those stubborn pockets of excess fat.
Leading up to your CoolSculpting appointment, your specialist will provide you with a list of specific dos and don’ts to make sure that you will be able to achieve the most effective and beautiful results possible from each session. Part of that includes what need to avoid, to achieve beautiful results as well as make sure that the treatment is as safe as possible. Some specific things you should consider avoiding before your CoolSculpting appointment include:
● Avoid taking any medications that are blood thinners (fish oil, aspirin, etc.) at least one week prior to your appointment to prevent unnecessary bruising.
● Avoid direct sunlight or any other situation including bruising or breaking the skin that might cause damage to the skin that is going to be treated.
● Avoid smoking for at least one week before the session if possible as this can impede the natural healing process, making it take longer to be able to see the provided results.
It is also recommended that patients try to maintain a fairly healthy diet leading up to their CoolSculpting treatment to further support fast, perfect results. Any significant changes to medications or diet for your CoolSculpting treatment should be addressed with your primary care physician prior to making the changes.
Once the CoolSculpting treatment has been completed, there are some tips to keep in mind to make sure that you are able to get the most out of your session by providing as beautiful and long-lasting results as possible. One of the most effective ways to ensure that you can get better results is to plan for multiple sessions of CoolSculpting to maximize the results possible. It is also highly recommended that both before and after the appointment you maintain a healthy lifestyle through regular exercise and a healthy diet, both of which should be fairly consistent. Immediately following the treatment, it is common for CoolSculpting providers to perform a quick massage to the treated area to increase the rate at which the treated fat cells are breaking down, so it will be beneficial to pay attention to how they massaged the area so that you can continue massaging the area a bit once you get home to further support the efficacy of the treatments and to reduce the risk of potential side effects from developing.
Both before and after your CoolSculpting appointment, it will be beneficial for your results to maintain a healthy and balanced diet. This means avoiding specific types of food as much as possible, including anything that is fried, overly processed, and high in sugar or starch. Including more protein, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables while ensuring that you are consuming enough calories for your body weight and supporting a consistent fitness regimen will help you achieve the best possible results from CoolSculpting and will provide long-term health benefits.
It is not necessary to lose weight before your first CoolSculpting appointment, but you will be able to achieve better results that will last much longer if you have already reached a goal weight that is going to be sustainable long-term. The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting will already have maintained a balanced diet and consistent exercise regimen to ensure that the best results possible are achieved and will last long-term.
CoolSculpting treatments should not be used as a weight-loss treatment, but they can provide body-sculpting and contouring for those who have gained a little bit of weight or have lost a significant amount of weight and are close to achieving their desired silhouette but could use a bit of help to get there.
