What to Do After a CoolSculpting® Treatment for Best Results

Do you feel like you’ve fought to a stalemate with your stubborn fat? CoolSculpting® lets you target those problem areas to achieve a more contoured figure. This body-sculpting treatment effectively freezes fat cells with no injections or incisions. Your Chill at Willow Aesthetics team focuses entirely on CoolSculpting®. We will help you maximize your results during and after treatment. 

What is CoolSculpting®?

Each person’s body has a different distribution of fat cells, and most of us have areas where extra fat accumulates and refuses to budge. CoolSculpting® can treat these problem spots to reduce fat and achieve a slimmer, more contoured shape. This treatment freezes fat cells, breaking them up and letting the body filter them away. Non-invasive CoolSculpting® achieves this fat reduction with none of the recovery time of a surgical procedure. 

What Can I Expect During CoolSculpting®?

We recommend that you arrive for your CoolSculpting® treatment well-hydrated. This will help your body eliminate fat cells. Your provider will apply a gel and then the CoolSculpting® applicator to the treatment area. When treatment begins, your skin might feel cold or tingly for a few minutes, but it quickly becomes numb. As a result, most people feel little to no discomfort during CoolSculpting®. Your provider will massage the area for several minutes after treatment to break up the fat and encourage the body’s circulation. 

What to Do After a CoolSculpting® Treatment for Best Results

You can ensure that you get the best results from your CoolSculpting® treatment by helping your body eliminate the treated fat cells. Follow these tips to get the most out of your results

  • Keep yourself hydrated
  • Stay physically active
  • Avoid taking NSAIDs like ibuprofen
  • Massage the area every day as instructed

Hydration, activity, and massage all improve lymphatic circulation in the treated area. This helps the body eliminate treated fat cells more quickly. People who follow these tips may see results more quickly. 

How Does CoolSculpting® Reduce Stubborn Fat?

CoolSculpting® uses applicators that lower the temperature of fat cells until they start to crystallize. This process, called cryolipolysis, only affects fat cells and will not harm your skin. The body will notice these damaged cells, and the lymphatic system will carry them away to be removed from the body. As the fat is removed, it reveals your reshaped, slimmer contours. We know CoolSculpting® is an investment in yourself, so we guarantee visible results. If we do not see results from your treatment, we will treat the area again at no cost to you. 

Is There Any Downtime With CoolSculpting®?

You can return to all your usual activities immediately after CoolSculpting® treatment. The lack of downtime is a significant advantage for those with no time for a long recovery. You might notice redness, sensitivity, or numbness in the treated area for a few days, but this should not limit your activities. 

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?

Most people make good candidates for CoolSculpting®. Ideal candidates have reasonable expectations about their results. Candidates who see the best results are close to their target weight and want to target stubborn areas of fat that have not responded to their efforts.
