CoolSculpting treatment has elevated the way we address the issue of unwanted fat. This body contouring treatment is not only nonsurgical but also completely noninvasive. No injections, no anesthesia, no downtime. This is what patients appreciate about freezing stubborn fat cells. As much as there is to appreciate about CoolSculpting, many patients have questions about how long their results may last. With a few strategies, what is achieved with CoolSculpting can be maintained for years.
Tip #1 – Ensure that CoolSculpting is Right for You.
We love what CoolSculpting can do and feel that this technique may be suitable for a wide range of patients. However, it isn’t for everyone. CoolSculpting is ideal for people whose weight is healthy for their body frame and is stable. Ideal candidates are those who are interested in correcting isolated areas of fatty tissue, such as a “pooch” along the lower abdomen or lingering fat on the inner or outer thighs. It is important to recognize that CoolSculpting will not reduce weight but that it can noticeably improve the appearance of the body. Still, for larger areas or more substantial fat reduction, liposuction may be a better option.
Tip #2 – Support Immediate Changes.
The results of CoolSculpting develop gradually as the body eliminates the fat cells that have been affected by cold temperature. This process occurs in the lymphatic system, which can work more efficiently with a little help. After CoolSculpting, we may gently massage the treatment area to begin the fat-elimination process. During the days that follow, patients may continue this massage technique every day or two to continually stimulate fat-reduction. Some people also wear a light compression garment after CoolSculpting. this can encourage healing and the transformation of shape. Finally, water consumption is vital to lymphatic function so we recommend drinking at least 8 glasses a day.
Tip #3 – Develop Habits that Support Long-Term Results.
Many people who undergo CoolSculpting are already committed to healthy eating and exercise habits. Maintaining these habits is key to ensuring that fat cells in the treatment area do not expand in the future. In addition to diet and exercise, some people also choose to undergo additional CoolSculpting treatments to enhance the results achieved from their initial treatment.
