CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-cleared treatment for freezing stubborn fat from the body. The results for this non-invasive treatment are noticeable and long-lasting. However, to achieve the perfect body that you always yearned for requires following some guidelines during the recovery process. If you are anxious about CoolSculpting®, the experts at Wayzata Cosmetic Surgery provide tips that will help you achieve the best results:
Improve Your Diet and Start Exercising
Although you don’t have to make major changes to your lifestyle after your treatment, you will need to exercise regularly and pay attention to the type of foods you consume. If you haven’t already started, now is a good time to get into a healthy routine. Exercises can help you maintain your fat levels after CoolSculpting®. Avoid processed foods and consider fruits, vegetable, whole grains, and farm-grown proteins.
Wear Comfortable Clothing
Don’t wear restrictive or tight clothing such as tight jeans immediately after your treatment. During the first few weeks following your treatment, wear loose fitting and comfortable clothing to give the treated area ample time to heal.
Most people notice results two to three weeks after their treatment. However, to some, it can take up to four months to notice any significant changes after CoolSculpting® treatment. Therefore, it’s important to remain patient and give your body time to eliminate dead fat cells. You can discuss when you will see your results in more detail with our educated staff.
Massage the Treated Areas
Another way to achieve the best results after CoolSculpting® is to massage the treated areas. Frequently massaging the treated areas for at least five minutes a day increases the efficacy of the fat freezing process. In fact, it improves fat reductions by 68% after the first two months and 44% after four months.
Be Cautious about Medications
Always ask our trained professionals before taking prescription medications or over-the-counter medications. If you experience any discomfort after your treatment, you can try discomfort relieving techniques such as deep breathing exercises, meditation, gentle exercises, massage therapy, warm compresses, and guided imagery.
