A recent breakthrough in fat reducing technology, CoolSculpting is an exciting procedure that allows patients to get rid of fat in targeted areas. When people are frustrated by the lack of sculpting or toning their hard work is reflecting, CoolSculpting can be a way to achieve those results without going under the knife.
However, while CoolSculpting does eliminate the fat for good, that doesn’t mean that you have seen the end of unwanted fat. Lifestyle habits that a patient had before the procedure do not disappear like the pesky fat your dermatologist just removed so easily. So what can you do to keep it from returning?
As mentioned above, CoolSculpting is not an alternative to weight loss via healthy amounts of exercise. While this procedure will help tone specific areas, continued exercise will aid in keeping the weight off and maintaining the results you receive from CoolSculpting. Since the procedure is entirely non-invasive, patients can begin exercising immediately after treatment.
2. Switch Up Your Routine
Your body loves to be surprised by new exercises and movements. Try switching up your routine and see if you can target the areas where you were not previously seeing results.
3. Proper Diet
In order to maintain a healthy and fit lifestyle, it is important for patients to continue pursuing a healthy and well-balanced diet following a body sculpting procedure. Be sure to eat several servings of fruits and vegetables on a daily basis as well as a protein-rich diet packed with fish, beans and legumes and lean meats.
4. Stay Hydrated
Water is your best friend when it comes to flushing toxins out of your body and staying hydrated. Copious amounts of water may also help reduce cravings for unhealthy snacks you may have. If you have a sweet tooth, we suggest infusing your water with fruits such as lemons, limes, strawberries and blackberries or vegetables like cucumber.
5. Additional Treatments
While CoolSculpting provides lifelong results, additional treatments may be necessary to achieve your desired results. While this procedure is not recommended for general weight loss, you can continue to use CoolSculpting to eliminate the stubborn fat in those areas that your current exercise and diet regime doesn’t seem to effect.
Like any other procedure, it is extremely important for you to speak to your dermatologist to consider all of your options for your body-sculpting journey.
