Things you should avoid before a fat freeze treatment
If after examining your body, your specialist agrees that you are a good candidate for the procedure and that the fat in the troubled areas you want to get rid of doesn’t respond to exercise or dieting, they are going to fix a day for the treatment.
To ensure that you have an excellent experience on the day of the procedure and get the results you so badly desire, there are a few things you must avoid prior to the day of your appointment. Below are a few of them.
Tanning or Suntanning
Tanning your skin (especially the affected area) days before the treatment is a terrible idea. Since the procedure increases skin sensitivity, you will have an uncomfortable and painful experience during the procedure.
Cutting or bruising the targeted area
If the targeted area is bruised or injured, the treatment may be postponed to a later date. The reason for this is that the intense massaging involved in the treatment may worsen the wound.
Taking blood-thinning medication
Whether you have an underlying health condition or not, you will be required to avoid medications like aspirin that are associated with blood-thinning, astaking them will make you more prone to bruising.
If need be, inquire from your doctor if you can take a substitute medication before the procedure.
Who should not undergo fat freeze treatments?
Even if you are a good candidate for a fat freeze procedure, you should not sign up for it if you have the following conditions.
- Paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria
- Cold agglutinin disease
As mentioned above, fat freeze procedures are non-invasive, effective, and safe. To ensure that you have a good experience during the treatment, you have to make a few preparations.
This can mean everything from avoiding certain medications and tanning tomaking drastic lifestyle changes before and after the procedure.
