If you don’t want to undergo surgery procedures to reduce fat in your body, CoolSculpting may be the right choice for you. CoolSculpting is a fat freezing treatment performed on the surface from the outside. It’s non-invasive, allowing you to avoid the risks and side effects of surgery and requiring no downtime.
To get the best benefits from this procedure, it’s important to follow the right aftercare steps for a safe and fast recovery. So, what do you need to do in order to gain the best results from CoolSculpting? Follow these tips:
Get some rest. Even though most patients feel ready to resume to their usual activities after their treatment is complete, it’s still important to rest and give time for your body to recover properly.
Schedule a follow-up appointment. Patients who have multiple treatments tend to gain faster results. In order to ensure you get satisfying results, make sure to follow your appointments especially the post-treatment check-ups.
Maintain a healthy lifestyle. You may have had your fat reduced with this treatment, but in order to maintain the results, you still need to watch your diet and do exercises so the extra pounds don’t come back.
Allow some time to see the final results. It’s normal if the area treated appears swollen or bruised after the treatment. It usually takes two to four months to see significant reduction in fat. While waiting, try to relax, keep exercising and continue your healthy diet.
Document your progress. It helps to take photos of the treated areas everyday, so you can compare the results and have a visual reference of your progress. This way, should you encounter some questions or issues, you doctor can make a more accurate diagnosis by using the photos as reference.
Try wearing compression garments. Although wearing compression garments is not a strict requirement, some patients find them helpful in reducing the swelling. Try and see if compression clothing can work for you in increasing comfort and minimising inflammation.
Take anti-pain medication. Depending on the degree of discomfort you feel, your doctor may prescribe painkillers or over-the-counter pain relief to further help alleviate pain and inflammation. Remember, every body is different so make sure to discuss your concerns with your doctor so he or she can recommend specific aftercare solutions for you.
