CoolSculpting® has quickly become a household name of sorts in nonsurgical fat loss treatments. Do a quick search online and you’ll easily find blog after blog of real people recounting their own experiences with CoolSculpting.
The vast majority of these tales have one major thread in common: their writers say that CoolSculpting is worth it, hands-down. But there are a few things you should know to help you get the most out of your CoolSculpting treatment and maximize your results.
1. Expectations Are Everything
CoolSculpting can produce amazing results without surgery or needles, there are no “buts” about that! However, you do have to have realistic expectations for what this nonsurgical body contouring tool can and can’t do.
For example, CoolSculpting isn’t going to magically shed the “quarantine 15” for you – diet and exercise are still a must! But this treatment can help you get rid of those pesky love handles or belly pooch that just won’t go away, no matter how many kale salads you eat.
2. Fat Can Return after CoolSculpting
While it’s true that the fat you get rid of during CoolSculpting is gone for good, the remaining fat cells can still enlarge in areas that were previously treated with CoolSculpting. Keep up with those great diet and exercise habits you had before your treatment to maintain your excellent body contouring results. You paid for CoolSculpting, you might as well enjoy long-term results, right?!
3. Don’t Panic If You Don’t See Immediate Results
There will be some swelling directly after getting CoolSculpting, and it can take several weeks for your body to process the “frozen” fat cells and start showing results. So don’t freak out if you’re not instantly trimmer upon leaving your appointment. Give it time before assessing your results.
