10 Aug How to Maximize Your CoolSculpting Results
CoolSculpting is the non-surgical body contouring procedure that is effective for men and women. Spectrum Dermatology specializes in CoolSculpting and was voted Top Doc in 2017 and 2018. Although results vary, you can optimize your results for a trimmer, slimmer body. Those who are at or near goal weight but struggle with “fat pouches” are the best candidates for the procedure.
CoolSculpting: Before and After Treatment
The most important step with CoolSculpting is the prep stage. During the consultation stage, you will learn about the effects of the treatment. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting is non-invasive and includes little to no downtime. However, it is not a fat loss tool and in rare cases can lead to short-term bruising. Understanding what to expect is paramount to having a positive experience.
Diet can also play a role in CoolSculpting. There is no way to out-exercise a poor diet, and such a diet cannot be CoolSculpted away. Following a healthy diet can improve the results of CoolSculpting. Some clients paid for their CoolSculpting with a positive change in diet and exercise, using CoolSculpting as an added boost as they contour and shape their body.
Massage is an integral part of the CoolSculpting process. Post-CoolSculpting massage can help with the re-shaping of the body. It is similar to massages received after liposuction. Working with a licensed massage therapist (LMT) not only improves CoolSculpting results but also adds a touch of pampering to the process.
It is essential to keep in mind that CoolSculpting is not a shortcut. It is not suitable for large amounts of fat loss. Instead, it is intended as a way to address stubborn pockets of fat or achieve final contouring of the body. Results can take six months to be fully revealed, but many clients report seeing results in just a few weeks, or even days. Taking measurements is the best way to gauge results and progress.
