Coolsculpting is a fat freeze procedure that is popular in Singapore and other parts of the world. People who have undergone the procedure have attested that it is effective and can deliver amazing results.
Besides being effective and painless, the procedure has zero downtime. This means that patients can go back to their routine after the activity.
Even if the fat freezing treatment has no downtime, there are a few things you must do and to ensure that you get the best results. In this article, we are going to be looking at some of them.
Learning about the side effects
Fat freeze treatment isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. Even though it is painless, patients may experience the following side effects after the procedure.
It may take a couple of days after the treatment for the above side effects to disappear.
Effective ways to recover quickly
Increasing your water intake can help speed up the rate at which your body eliminates the fat cells in your body. Staying hydrated before the procedure will help ensure that you have a pleasant experience. Making it a habit to drink a few glasses of water (daily) after the treatment will help your body recover quicker.
Don’t push yourself too hard
If after the fat freeze treatment, the affected area becomes red, sore, or even bruised; you should take it easy and stay away from intense activities that will stress you out.
Going to the gym after the procedure is by no means a good idea, as your cloth may rub against the affected area and cause more irritation. It is best you allow the treated area to heal and other side effects to subside before working out again.
Be gentle with yourself
Be gentle with yourself when taking a shower, drying your skin, and applying lotion on your skin. Don’t use hot or cold water for bathing days after the procedure. Lukewarm water is a better option, as it won’t irritate the affected area.
If you experience a lot of discomfort and pain after the fat freeze treatment, you should consider taking OTC painkillers like ibuprofen or Acetaminophen for a couple of days after the procedure. Be careful not to take more than the daily dose your doctor recommended.
You can reduce the pain in the affected area by practicing yoga and deep breathing exercise. You can go the extra mile by applying a warmcompress to the affected area.
Your result depends on you
To get the best results after a fat freeze treatment, you have to follow a healthy diet, drink lots of water, and stay physically active. Doing this, will help ensure that you get the slim and defined body you so badly desire.
Following the above tips will help aid your recovery after a fat freeze treatment. If you feel uncomfortable or the affected area starts to swell, you should consult your doctor immediately.
Always remember that fat freeze treatment isn’t an alternative for exercise and eating healthy.
