With 2023 right around the corner and people starting to think about their New Years resolutions, let’s talk about CoolSculpting. After all the meals and celebrations that come with the holiday season, many of us make those resolutions around our body image goals. If this sounds like you, then a body contouring procedure might be the help you need to start 2023 in the right direction. Of all the body contouring procedures out there, CoolSculpting is one of the most, if not the most, well known one out there! But even though you’ve likely heard the name, there’s plenty you need to know before you go into your medspa for your first appointment.
Famous For A Reason
With 5 million treatments done worldwide, CoolSculpting is a well-known, well-documented way to get rid of stubborn fat. It wouldn’t be so popular if it wasn’t a safe and convenient option! A single treatment can last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes depending on the area that is going to be treated. Better yet, it’s a non-invasive procedure so it’s pain-free throughout the procedure, and there’s no downtime. In fact, some people come during their lunch hour and go straight back to work. The only minimal recovery needed is if there happens to be slight bruising and tenderness at the site of the treatment, and it usually subsides in just a few days.
Tips For Success
So you’re thinking about speeding up your fat loss journey with CoolSculpting? Great choice! We have a few tips for you to make the most of your procedure.
There’s not too much that goes into preparing for a CoolSculpting session. Just keep in mind the area being treated will be more sensitive following the procedure, so you may not want to tan too soon before your appointment. Also be wary of medications that can cause blood thinning, but of course consult your doctor before discontinuing any of your regular medications. Speaking of things to hold off on before treatment, avoid smoking for at least a week before treatment as it can hinder the effectiveness of the treatment as well as the recovery process.
When going into the medspa for the treatment, you may want to wear loose fitting comfortable clothes, because you will be sensitive after treatment so tight clothes may be more uncomfortable than usual.
CoolSculpting is the process of lowering the desired area to a temperature that freezes and kills fat cells while leaving all the surrounding skin, muscle, and nerve cells healthy and unharmed. Killing fat cells is just the beginning as they still need somewhere to go. With this in mind, the absolute most important thing to note after the treatment is to hydrate more than usual (especially the first few days after treatment) in order to help your body flush out the dead fat cells in the weeks following treatment.
