What is coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is the only non invasive procedure for fat reduction. Using controlled cooling, this method gets rid of hard-to-remove fat. It destroys your fat cells and forces your body to metabolize it before it can be stores somewhere else. Here are the top do’s and don’t before you embark on your CoolSculpt journey.
How does coolsculpting work? – The processed works well for people who are slightly overweight, because the machine can only fit a certain amount of fat in it. It helps shorten and quicken your weightless journey but isn’t a miracle cure for the obese.
Don’t take medication or supplements that thin the blood such as fish oil and St. Johns Wort, as this can make you bruise easier. Consult your doctor but try to stop taking them about a week before the procedure.
Try to protect your skin before the procedure, since damaging it beforehand (cuts or bruises) might force you to postpone your treatment as it. May worsen existing wounds.
Try not to tan where you are getting the fat removed, as this can make skin very sensitive to treatment. Use SPF diligently to avoid this sensitivity,
Wear loose clothing the day of your treatment and old underwear, since they apply a gel which may get on your undergarments.
Find out how many treatments you’ll need beforehand rather than blindly saying yes. Some people only need one treatment and are happy with 20% reduction, while others need repeated sessions every couple of months. This can make a big difference in terms of the dent in your wallet.
If you’re curious how effective is coolsculpting, don’t expect long term results to manifest without lifestyle changes. If you don’t eat well and don’t exercise, the results won’t keep up with you.
Side effects during treatment include tugging feelings, intense cold, cramping, and stinging, followed by redness and firmness with possible cramping and sensitivity.
Due to the noninvasive nature of CoolSculpting, results are not immediate, but the risks are decidedly lower than invasive procedures such as liposuction.
Also you shouldn’t do coolsculpting if you’re pregnant or trying to get pregnant.
