What To Expect During Fat Freeze Treatment?

During the coolsculpting procedure, a cold membrane is laid on the areas of the body with unwanted fat to protect the skin, muscles, and nerves.

An applicator will be placed on the area, creating a suction pull sensation, along with mild tingling, coldness, and slight cramps. The applicator releases intense cold temperatures to kill the more sensitive fat cells, leaving your muscles and nerves unharmed.

After the treatment, the dead fat cells will be flushed out of your system in standard natural ways, causing one to lose weight.

3 Ways To Expedite Recovery

1) Exercise

Patients who engage in exercise see even faster results over time that last longer, as opposed to those who don't. Although it's not mandatory, adding regular physical activity to your routine will enhance and maintain the results of CoolSculpting.

Do avoid intense physical exercise for a few days right after the coolsculpting treatment, to allow your body to rest and heal. We would strongly recommend mild exercises like going for a walk to stimulate the body's lymphatic system.

2) Gently massage the treated area to improve blood circulation

Gently massage the treated area

A light massage after your fat-freezing sessions improves the effects of the treatment. A massage will increase blood flow and stimulate the lymphatic system. This is important as it helps bring the dead fat cells into the bloodstream, which transports them to the liver where it gets broken down and removed from the body.

3) Drink 2 liters of water a day

Keeping yourself hydrated by drinking 2 Litres of water a day will help speed up the healing process as your body becomes more effective in removing waste material.

Take Away

Fat freezing process involves moderate pain but the pain will fade away within a few weeks. Ultimately, this mild pain is quite a tradeoff if you want to reach your ideal body weight without having incision scars that plastic surgery causes. By engaging in aftercare activities, such as exercising, massaging, and drinking water, you can speed up the recovery process and reduce the pain.
