CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary fat reduction technology which freezes fat cells, leading to their death and a substantial reduction in fatty tissue. While it’s not a weight loss treatment, it will help you reduce fat in key areas, according to your goals.
It’s non-surgical, safe and painless. Because of the temperature of the wand used in the therapy, patients experience a cold sensation. It’s like putting an ice cube directly on your skin. You feel the ice as a shocking change in temperature and then, you skin goes numb.
But CoolSculpting® isn’t voodoo. It’s an effective method for spot fat reduction which needs your help, once the treatment has concluded. This post is about CoolSculpting®: how to ensure great results after treatment. We’re going to share some tips with you to make sure you get the best results possible.
Part of what do for our guests here at Ethos Spa, Skin & Laser Center is to empower them to obtain the stunning results they’re hoping for. It isn’t over when you leave the treatment room. It’s just beginning.
One of the best gifts you can give your body is the gift of hydration. Most of us don’t drink nearly enough water. Instead, we turn to soft drinks. Many find water “boring”. But consider that your body consists mostly of water which is continually evaporating and being eliminated from your body.
And when you have a CoolSculpting® treatment, the treated fat cells die and their contents must be eliminated. When you increase your water intake, you increase your body’s ability to eliminate the contents of those dead fat cells.
The more water you drink, the more you’re helping your lymphatic system do its post-treatment job. If you’re not used to drinking as much water as you should, set weekly goals for water intake and stick to them.
Sweat It Out
Many of us tend to think of sweating in a negative light, but it’s a natural process of the body which serves to eliminate toxins in our system. Sweat also keeps us cool when we’re hot.
If you’re not given to exercise, the time is now to find an activity you enjoy. Allowing your body to do its job – to sweat out the fat you’ve treated – may also mean hitting the sauna or steam room.
Whichever method you choose to sweat it out, you’re hastening the processes set in motion by CoolSculpting® and achieving the results you want.
Mind Your Nutrition
Eating well is a cornerstone of health. After your CoolSculpting® treatments, give some serious thought to the way you eat.
Just because you’ve undergone fat reduction therapy doesn’t mean to say you can eat fast food and highly-processed foods. In fact, eating that way will slow your results and undermine them.
Choose foods which are high in fiber, like green, leafy vegetables and grains. Lean meats, chicken and fish are other healthy choices which will help you get the most bang for your CoolSculpting® buck.
