CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses cryolipolysis, which essentially freezes and destroys unwanted fat cells beneath the skin. People who are interested in CoolSculpting® usually want to reduce the fat around their thighs, belly and sides, as well as cellulite along the legs and around the buttocks and arms.
Men who would like to keep their lean physique as they age can undergo CoolSculpting® especially when they want to reduce love handles or a double chin. After your fat freezing procedure, your body will eliminate these dead fat cells and they are removed for good. What’s left is a great looking body regardless of your age.
However, if you want the effects of CoolSculpting® to last longer, follow these tips:
- Start a nutrient-rich diet
A CoolSculpting® treatment does not mean you can eat whatever you want and not get fat. It’s still important to know your body and eat the right food, especially if you live with dietary restrictions or certain conditions. Minimise fast food and opt for more whole foods like veggies and fruits and lean protein.
You can always talk to your GP about a diet that can complement CoolSculpting®.
- Maintain your weight through exercise
Depending on your physiology, you can do strength training and cardio to really keep the fat away. On the other hand, if you don’t exercise, fat cells may return to the treated areas over time. Exercise along with a good diet can help enhance the effects of CoolSculpting® indefinitely.
In short, the procedure is not an excuse to skip exercising.
- Hydrate frequently
Drinking an appropriate amount of water can help you reduce fat cells faster. Stay hydrated after your procedure as it also helps in recovery: when the frozen fat cells defrost, they will exit the body through bodily functions - specifically, urine. At the same time, it is important to stay hydrated in general to stay in optimal health.
Also, remember to take it easy after your CoolSculpting® and don’t expect any dramatic changes right away.
