Freeze Away Your Stubborn Fat Like Never Before

Up to 25% Fat Reduction With CoolSculpting: Treat Yourself Today!

Maintaining an Active and Healthy Lifestyle

When it comes to speeding up CoolSculpting results, maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle is perhaps the most critical step. This innovative fat-freezing procedure targets stubborn pockets of fat, but it cannot prevent new fat cells from forming if you fall into unhealthy habits post-treatment. 

Like a gardener tending to their garden, you must continue nurturing your body through regular exercise and balanced nutrition to yield the long-term slimming effects you desire.

Embarking on the CoolSculpting journey requires a holistic perspective - one that integrates this cosmetic treatment into an overall commitment to fitness and wellbeing. 

Regular exercise allows those frozen fat cells to thaw and dissolve away gradually. A healthy diet gives your body the nutrients it needs to flush away the dead tissue and reveal your new contours.

Approach the months following your CoolSculpting session with consistent nurturing. Make exercise a daily ritual, whether it’s a jog around the neighborhood or streaming a yoga class after work. Discover satisfying low-calorie recipes to avoid the temptation of empty calories. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated as your body eliminates those damaged fat cells. 

By seamlessly integrating healthy habits into your lifestyle, you’ll accelerate your CoolSculpting results and inspire those around you to embrace their body goals as well. Your commitment will blossom into not just a slimmer physique, but a deep sense of self-care that radiates from within.

Consistent Hydration

Drinking enough water is a simple yet powerful way to expedite your CoolSculpting results. Hydration provides the crucial foundation for your body to efficiently flush away the crystallized fat cells targeted during your treatment.

Imagine your body as a flowing stream. In the months following your CoolSculpting session, that stream is carrying away debris in the form of dead fat cells. But if the stream runs low or dries up from dehydration, the debris will accumulate along the banks rather than be swept away. 

Drinking plenty of water prevents this buildup by creating a strong, steady current to whisk that frozen fat from your system.

Hydration also prevents water retention and bloating, which can disguise your emerging leanness. When deprived of water, your body will cling to every last drop it can find. Quench its thirst thoroughly and you'll avoid misleading swelling. 

Begin each morning with a tall glass of cool water with lemon, and keep water handy throughout the day. For every coffee or tea, have an additional glass to offset the diuretic effects of caffeine. During and after workouts, rehydrate vigorously to flush out metabolic waste.

By committing to supercharged hydration, you’ll empower your kidneys and liver to work their waste-eliminating magic. Those destroyed fat cells will have no choice but to catch the current and disappear for good.

Massage the Treated Area

Don’t underestimate the power of massage when it comes to expediting your CoolSculpting results. After each fat-freezing session, be sure to vigorously massage the treated areas for at least 5 minutes per side. This helps break up the crystallized fat cells so they can be flushed from your system more easily.

Picture the frozen fat cells like pieces of food stuck in your teeth - massage is like picking and brushing to dislodge those particles and clear them away. Use firm pressure and circular motions to essentially “chew up” those lifeless cells so they can readily catch the current of your circulation.

Beyond physically breaking up the fat, massage boosts blood flow and drainage in the treatment area. The improved circulation whisks away metabolic waste products and brings fresh nutrients to aid tissue repair. 

Robust circulation also kicks your lymphatic system into high gear to drain puffiness and swelling. Increased blood flow promotes collagen production and skin tightening.

The takeaway? Don’t skip those post-treatment massage sessions. 

Have your practitioner provide a thorough massage immediately after your CoolSculpting appointment. And be diligent about massaging the areas yourself twice daily for a few minutes at a time in the weeks thereafter. 

Consider investing in a percussion massage gun to really pulverize those fat cells and get them moving out of your body sooner. With consistent massage, you’ll wave goodbye to that stubborn fat more swiftly and enjoy your newly contoured figure that much faster.

Optimal Clothing Choice

The clothing you wear immediately after your CoolSculpting session can make a difference in side effects and how quickly you see results.

Loose, breathable fabrics like cotton are ideal following treatment. This allows your skin to breathe and prevents irritation or friction against tender areas. Tight clothes may lead to discomfort and swelling. Compression garments like slimming leggings or shapewear, on the other hand, can speed results by reducing swelling and bruising.

Imagine treated fat cells as debris leftover from construction work. Loose clothes are needed initially to allow the "dust" to settle without disturbance. Then compression garments act like a dump truck to haul away the debris efficiently. Alternate between loose and compressive clothing during the days following treatment for comfort and optimal results.

Opt for loose pajamas to allow skin maximal contact with cool air, which helps reduce swelling overnight. During the day, compression leggings or slimming camisoles can be worn safely under loose dresses or tunics. For men, try a cooling athletic sleeve or compression vest under a button-down shirt. If stiffness or sensitivity persists, continue with loose fabrics until tenderness fades.

By choosing the right clothing for each stage of healing and recovery, you’ll minimize discomfort and get rid of frozen fat cells more quickly. Be intuitive and listen to your body’s needs. Ultimately finding the optimal clothing balance will help you bare your sleek, sculpted physique sooner.

Avoiding Anti-Inflammatory Drugs

While it may seem counterintuitive, avoiding anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen after CoolSculpting is actually recommended. This allows your body's natural inflammatory response to work unhindered to eliminate the frozen fat cells.

Think of fat cells as intruders that your body's security system needs to identify and escort out. NSAIDs like Advil are like disarming the security system - the intruders go unchecked. Without medications dulling your immune response, inflammatory cells called macrophages can infiltrate the treated area and carry away the cellular debris.

In rare cases, suppressed inflammation causes a paradoxical response where fat cells expand rather than shrink. Allowing the post-treatment inflammatory process to run its course reduces this risk. A natural response also means more macrophages targeting those frozen fat cells for removal.

Of course, NSAIDs are helpful for many conditions. But they essentially handcuff your body from removing the fat as quickly and efficiently as possible. For 2-6 weeks post-treatment, try swapping NSAIDs for more natural remedies like massage, coconut oil, gentle stretching, and rest. 

This gives your body's security team the green light to swiftly escort those unwanted fat cells out the door. With a little patience and avoidance of anti-inflammatory meds, your results will impress you.

Attending Follow-Up Treatments

While some patients see satisfying fat reduction after just one CoolSculpting treatment, others require multiple sessions to meet their goals. Attending follow-up appointments is crucial for long-term success.

Your provider tailors an ongoing treatment plan based on your individual fat composition, problem areas, and objectives. Like an artist adding layers of paint to a canvas, you build toward your ideal image with each session. Don't cut the process short before you reach the masterpiece you envision.

Each treatment takes out another "brushstroke" of fat, gradually revealing your lean physique. Space follow-up sessions at least 4 weeks apart to allow your body time to flush away the damaged cells. Be patient through this artistic process. Attend all recommended sessions until your provider confirms you've achieved optimal, lasting sculpting.

Think of follow-up treatments like booster shots for your immune system, reinforcing and maximizing the initial CoolSculpting effects. Your provider prescribes an intentional series tailored to your transformation. Trust their guidance and commitment to your goals. Show up to each appointment to bravely peel away another layer of stubborn fat, revealing the confident you inside.


It's important to remember that CoolSculpting results vary for each individual based on factors like genetics, metabolism, lifestyle, and adherence to aftercare. 

While CoolSculpting itself permanently eliminates treated fat cells, it should not replace a healthy diet and regular exercise. For optimal, long-lasting effects, integrate this fat reduction treatment into an overall commitment to health and wellness.

By incorporating the lifestyle tweaks discussed here, such as staying active, hydrated, massaging treatment areas, and attending follow-up appointments, you can expedite your results. But be sure to maintain realistic expectations and work closely with your provider for a customized experience. With some consistency and diligence, you'll be able to enhance and extend your transformation well beyond your last CoolSculpting session.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "The treatment itself was not uncomfortable. Afterwords, I felt great. I didn't really notice anything for about 30 days. After day 30 until about a month later, I started noticing that my favorite jeans were not as tight anymore. I wasn't having to suck in to get them buttoned. And by that two month period after my CoolSculpting

  • "It's subtle at first, and then a month later you look and go, "Wow - It really did something!" It really moved the bar for me, and I'm feeling better about myself already. It feels so good to put on anything and know I look as good as I've ever looked. And I didn't say that or feel that when I was in my 20's, 30's, and 40's."
