When it comes to cosmetic procedures, we want to know that what we pay for is going to last. With non-surgical treatments like CoolSculpting®, there is no set of strict aftercare instructions to help you maintain your results in the long-run. We’re going to go through our top five most popular tips to maintaining your slimmed body thanks to CoolSculpting®.
1. Exercise Regularly.
One of the best ways to ensure you keep fat off is by participating in an activity that promotes fat loss. We recommend you start a regular exercise routine if you did not have one already. Do you dread working out? You’re not alone. Consider alternative forms of exercise that don’t feel as mundane as going to the gym, like taking a brisk walk around your neighborhood, joining a recreational sports team, or taking up dance classes.
2. Eat a Balanced Diet.
Eating a balanced diet goes hand-in-hand with exercising regularly. To maintain the appearance of having a healthy lifestyle with a slim body, you need to follow the steps of having a healthy lifestyle. We’re not talking anything extreme like going plant-based or completely carb-free, but consider cutting out fried foods and eating the appropriate amount of calories for your lifestyle.
3. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate.
There’s no denying the benefits of drinking water. Proper hydration is good for your muscular health, joint health, cardiovascular health, and, most importantly, digestive health. After fat cells are destroyed with CoolSculpting®, they must be naturally eliminated from the body. Drinking plenty of water aids in the body’s natural detoxification and digestive process, helping you lose your fat and maintain your results.
4. Massage it out.
Not only will massaging your treatment area feel good after your CoolSculpting® session, but it’s also been proven to help with your results. Studies have shown that massaging the treated area for at least five minutes following a CoolSculpting® treatment can improve fat reduction by up to 68 percent in the first two months, and 44 percent after four months. Ask your doctor about how you can properly massage your treatment area for the best results.
5. Repeat What Works.
We like to think of CoolSculpting® as a transformative treatment, meaning you’re going to see the progress of this treatment over a period of time after more than one treatment. We recommend coming in for additional follow-up and maintenance treatments after your initial CoolSculpting® appointment. This will ensure you see consistent progress with your body’s transformation and maximize your results.
