How does your body get rid of fat after CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the brand name for the fat freezing method of body sculpting, also known as cryolipolysis. As such, CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure that aims to remove stubborn fat in targeted areas of the body by freezing fat cells to trigger their natural death.
In contrast to surgical fat reduction procedures like liposuction, CoolSculpting is minimally invasive and non-surgical, so you do not need to factor in a lengthy recovery period with CoolSculpting treatment.
While CoolSculpting is not a viable weight loss solution, it is an excellent way to get rid of areas of fat that stubbornly stick around after losing weight via more natural methods like diet, exercise, or medically supervised weight loss programs.
Preparation for a CoolSculpting appointment is pretty straightforward, as it should not involve any major disruptions to your daily routine. That said, some recommended things to do before your CoolSculpting appointment are as follows:
• Avoid medications or supplements that are known to thin your blood, such as aspirin, fish oil, or St. John’s Wort, at least one week before your appointment.
• As best as you can, try to avoid any damage to your skin in the target area.
• Avoid tanning the skin in the targeted area at least one week before the appointment.
• Eat as healthy as you can and, if possible, avoid smoking for a week before your appointment.
CoolSculpting sessions typically take between 30 minutes to one hour to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area and the patient’s overall CoolSculpting needs.
Most patients begin to notice their results from CoolSculpting between one to three months after their treatment session. As results continue to improve for patients, they typically see peak results approximately four to six months after their treatment session.
With that in mind, CoolSculpting does not provide immediate results, as you will gradually notice significant improvements as the fat cells die off and your body naturally eliminates them. In this way, CoolSculpting can provide long-lasting fat reduction results to patients hoping to eliminate areas of stubborn fat.
After the fat cells are exposed to freezing temperatures that trigger the organic death of those cells, your body naturally eliminates those cells through the lymphatic system. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to reduce inflammation and remove waste. As such, after the fat cells are frozen and deactivated, they enter the lymphatic system and, from there, are sent to the liver and kidneys to be naturally eliminated from your body.
