What Not to Do After CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting works by freezing fat cells that are resistant to standard exercise and diet. The process is non-invasive, which means it doesn’t require surgery. This isn't to say that CoolSculpting is without possible complications. While there could be some pain and discomfort that comes with it, they aren’t long-term: the "cooling" effects of the process cause the most discomfort, which may come and go as your body responds to the fat cell removal.

So is there anything that you shouldn’t do after undergoing a CoolSculpting treatment?Yes, there are various aftercare tips that doctors and aestheticians recommend to CoolSculpting patients that reduce the impact of side effects and aid in recovery. Some of these include wearing tight clothes, being sedentary, skipping massage and warm compresses, and not hydrating yourself.

Don’t Do These After a CoolSculpting Treatment

Despite being a non-invasive aesthetic treatment, you still need to take some time to recover after undergoing a CoolSculpting treatment. This is because certain practices and habits can slow down the healing process. Here are what you should avoid doing to aid in your recovery.

Wear Tight Clothes

Swelling and soreness are two of the most prevalent side effects of CoolSculpting treatment. It is best not to wear tight clothing immediately after treatment. Increased pressure on your skin as a result of tight clothing makes you feel more uncomfortable. Tight clothing may further exacerbate the swelling, pain, redness, and other unpleasant symptoms associated with the treatment.

In order to ensure that you’re as comfortable as possible during your CoolSculpting treatment, you should dress in loose and comfortable clothing before arriving. Women will feel at ease with loose dresses, skirts, or your softest, loosest jeans. For men, you can bring out some baggy sweatpants and baggy t-shirts. Anything large enough to swim in and comfortable enough to sleep in will suffice.

Being Sedentary

If you're experiencing any discomfort following your treatment, it may seem contradictory, but moving around is one of the most effective things you can do to alleviate your discomfort.

The thought of being active while feeling sore may be unappealing, but being sedentary and not moving may actually hamper your recovery.

In order for your body to manage the healing process more easily, you should do this to help start your circulation flowing. Keep in mind that your blood is responsible for transporting oxygen and nutrients throughout your body. The more blood that circulates through your body, the happier your cells will be.

We're not suggesting that you go out and run a marathon. Simple movements to get your blood flowing like walking or yoga can do the trick.

If you're not experiencing any discomfort, you should be able to resume your normal exercise program following your procedure.

Not Massaging or Doing a Warm Compress

If the affected area is causing you discomfort, you may find that taking a more direct approach is the best course of action.

A warm compress can aid in the circulation of heat in the affected area, as well as the reduction of discomfort and edema. In addition, getting a massage might assist in re-energizing your skin and muscles.

A massage immediately following the procedure will enhance the results of CoolSculpting. It aids in the breakdown of frozen fat and the stimulation of the lymphatic system, which helps to drain out dead fat cells. Multiple days following a CoolSculpting treatment, continue to massage the treated area several times a day for several days to aid in the body's natural waste elimination mechanism for the best outcomes.

Not Hydrating

Drinking plenty of water will aid your body in its efforts to destroy fat cells as quickly as possible. Getting enough hydration before and after the operation will aid in the flushing out of dead fat cells from your lymphatic system.

So try to drink enough fluids before and after the procedure to aid in your body's recuperation and to give the treatment a chance to work properly.

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."
