If you’re having trouble parting ways with pesky fat that isn’t responding to your diet and exercise efforts, CoolSculpting could be the solution you’ve been looking for. In as little as a single treatment, CoolSculpting can freeze away stubborn fat and help you get the slim, sleek physique you’ve been working so hard for.
While your CoolSculpting session doesn’t require much effort at all on your part — you can even read a magazine or get caught up on your favorite show during your appointment — there are a few things you can do before and after getting CoolSculpting to maximize your results.
1. Eat a Healthy Diet
CoolSculpting can be an excellent option to help you shed stubborn fat in nearly any area of your body, but it’s not a substitute for good old-fashioned healthy eating and exercise. To maximize and maintain amazing results after getting CoolSculpting, keep up with healthy eating habits, as you can still gain weight in areas that have previously been treated with CoolSculpting.
- Some general healthy eating tips to keep in mind include:
- Avoiding processed foods as much as possible
- Limiting sugary drinks and sweets
- Eating a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables
- Drinking plenty of water
In fact, many people find that CoolSculpting is a great motivator to stay on track with a healthy diet and exercise. Once you start to see the beginnings of your CoolSculpting results in as little as two weeks after treatment, you might find that you’re extra motivated to treat your body well so you can get the most out of those results and keep them long-term.
3. Consider Additional Treatments
In many cases, you will see optimal results after a single CoolSculpting session. However, there may be some instances where your CoolSculpting provider may recommend an additional treatment to see the best results. Discuss your CoolSculpting options and progress with your provider to see if an additional treatment might be necessary to achieve your goals.
Keep in mind, too, that it will take some time for your full CoolSculpting results to develop. Be patient with your body as your results continue to improve over the coming weeks.
4. Choose an Experienced Provider
Finally, your CoolSculpting results will be largely dependent on the technique used and the skill and expertise of your CoolSculpting provider. Do your homework prior to signing up for a treatment to make sure you are working with a trained and experienced professional to ensure the best possible results. A skilled provider should also provide you with specific before and after instructions to help you maximize your CoolSculpting results even further.
