5 Things To Do After Your Fat Freeze Treatment

1) Monitor Visceral Fat Levels

Fat freeze treatments target only the hard-to-lose subcutaneous fat and not visceral fat. Visceral fat is the deep, dangerous kind that accumulates around your organs and can only be reduced through diet, lifestyle changes (such as getting enough sleep), and exercise. So, it's important to monitor your visceral fat levels during treatment by eating healthy foods, staying active, drinking lots of water, getting enough restful sleep each night, and reducing stress whenever possible.

2) Gently Massage Treated Area To Improve Blood Circulation

A light massage after your fat freezing sessions improves the effects of the treatment. It helps to break down your frozen fat and encourages your body's waste removal system to flush out the fat cells. To expedite the recovery process, continue massaging the area a few times a day for up to 7 days after your fat freezing process. Do note that you should not use medicated oil with the massage. Instead, you can use aloe vera gel or mild scent-free moisturiser.
