What Can I Do After CoolSculpting?
What is it?
CoolSculpting works on the principle that fat cells are worse equipt to withstand extreme cold than the other cells in your body. Essentially CoolSculpting brings your fat cells to a certain temperature for a certain amount of time, and in doing so, the fat cells are set up for death!
Depending on which body parts you are treating and how many, you could be freezing fat for 35 minutes to several hours, but it’s done non-invasively and in the comfort of beautifully designed Bodify rooms. Because it is non-invasive, there are no scars, and there is little to no downtime as well. Most clients visit the office at least two times for treatments to get the most dramatic and beautiful outcomes. CoolSculpting Elite is FDA-Cleared and is safe, effective, and a great way to finally see changes in those stubborn diet and exercise resistant spots.
CoolSculpting, like any procedure, has some side effects. We always tell our clients that if you do CoolSculpting, you’ll get addicted because it works so well. Other than that, there are a few things we make sure clients are aware of so you can be fully prepared for the treatment and after.
After the procedure
After the treatment, you will feel slightly inflamed, sore, and tender. For most, it is slightly annoying but nothing more. For a small percentage of people, 5-7 days after treatment, when the nerve endings reawaken, it feels like pins and needles, and it is a little tricky at night not to notice these sensations. If that happens, a non-narcotic medication is called in to help get you through a few days.
Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia or PAH is a rare side effect of this treatment, which is corrected through liposuction paid for by Allergan’s insurance policy. Instead of the cells dying from the cold, they could grow larger.
Maintaining your body
The fat takes around 1-4 months to leave your body. You should maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle with this body sculpting service for maximum effectiveness.
The best advice is “follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly.” If you need more specific direction, it is best to check in with a dietitian or a personal trainer. Otherwise, you can look up some cardio exercise and generic diet plans.
