How can you get better results from non-surgical body contouring? Our St. Louis-based team at West County Plastic Surgeons of Washington University knows that patients who are having treatments like CoolSculpting® want to get the most out of their efforts.
In the pursuit of a sculpted and toned body, many individuals turn to various methods of non-surgical fat reduction to remove isolated pockets of fat on “problem areas” that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary non-invasive procedure that is a highly effective way to target stubborn fat pockets without surgery or downtime. The fat that it breaks down is gradually removed by the body, leaving behind slimmer body contours and improving the overall body shape. Want better CoolSculpting® results? See below for some of the best ways to boost the results from this body contouring procedure.
- Drink Up
Drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated is one of the best things you can do after a CoolSculpting® treatment to optimize results. Proper hydration is good for your general health, and getting enough water can help to promote the body’s elimination processes. Hydration helps your body to process and eliminate the fat that has been broken down.
- Exercise Regularly
Another thing to remember about CoolSculpting® is that exercising regularly can enhance and complement the results. Working out can help to promote even more fat loss while also strengthening the muscles. Strength training exercises, in particular, are highly recommended.
- Limit Your Sodium Intake
You’ll want to keep your salt intake in check if you’re choosing CoolSculpting®. Avoid salt and refrain from drinking alcohol for the first 48 hours while your body is temporarily in an inflammatory condition. Avoiding salt can help to keep swelling and bloating down.
- Supplement With Good Skincare Products
Although it isn’t usually a requirement, applying a topical product that tightens skin after CoolSculpting® can help you to get faster results and enhance the overall appearance of the skin on the treated area. You should also be sure to moisturize your skin and protect it from UV rays.
