In this day and age, women (and men) are always looking for the next cool thing that will give them that perfect body. While there are many cool things out there on the market, such as CoolSculpting®, Botox may be a better choice for those looking to improve their looks. Many think CoolSculpting® and Botox are the same thing, but actually, CoolSculpting® and Botox go hand in hand.
Both CoolSculpting® and Botox use cold temperatures to freeze fat cells and remove them from the body. CoolSculpting® is a machine that freezes fat cells and cools you down which results in the breakdown of fat cells. Once cool, those fat cells are removed from the body by a suctioning device.
Botox is an FDA-approved treatment that reduces wrinkles and skin creases on the face. In order to receive Botox treatments, one must go to a certified professional who can administer these treatments as they work to relax muscles in your face. What do you need to know after Botox? What causes Botox to wear off faster?
CoolSculpting® is a great procedure that can take years off your appearance by smoothing wrinkles, tightening saggy areas like your chin or belly, or eliminating love handles. The results are long-lasting, too!
But what do you need to know after CoolSculpting®? How soon can I get back to my daily routine? What should I expect during recovery?
Here are 5 things You Have To Keep In Mind After A CoolSculpting® Procedure:
1. CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss procedure; it’s designed to eliminate stubborn fat that diet and exercise can’t get rid of.
CoolSculpting® freezes and eliminates fat, but if you’re looking for pounds lost, coolsculpting won’t do the trick. It’s important to keep in mind that coolsculpting is a procedure that freezes and removes fat by cooling it with gentle suction applied to the skin. The cool temperature causes the fat cells to crystallize and die, which then can be naturally eliminated from your body over time (usually taking 2-3 months).
2. You might need more than one coolsculpting session
The coolsculpting procedure usually requires 1 treatment. But since it’s not a weight loss procedure, coolsculpting can’t promise the amount of fat reduction you might want to achieve. That’s why some people opt to have 2 or 3 treatments in order to get the results they desire—and their coolsculpting provider may recommend more than one coolsculpting session for maximum results.
3. CoolSculpting® leaves no scars and no down time – you can go back to your regular activities immediately!
CoolSculpting® is a procedure that cools and eliminates fat by freezing it with gentle suction applied to the skin, which will destroy the fat cells in the treated area. The cool temperature causes the fat cells to crystallize and die, which then can be naturally eliminated from your body over time (usually taking 2-3 months).
CoolSculpting® is usually an outpatient procedure requiring little or no anesthesia, so you can go back to your regular activities immediately after coolsculpting with no downtime.
4. You will feel and see immediate results after CoolSculpting®
You can expect to see and feel a noticeable difference in the treated area right away—and you will notice even more dramatic changes as coolSculpting® eliminates your fat over time (usually taking 2-3 months).
5. CoolSculpting® recovery time is quick!
There’s no recovery time after coolsculpting because coolSculpting® entails no surgery or anesthetic, so you can go back to your regular activities immediately. You may notice some redness and minor swelling for a couple of days following coolSculpting®, but overall coolsculpting is not that painful.
