If you’re not ready to commit to a surgical procedure like liposuction to target your stubborn fat cells and remove them from the body for good, we want to introduce you to a non-invasive treatment that will. At Mountain State Cosmetic Surgery in Beckley, WV, we offer Coolsculpting. This body contouring treatment uses cold temperatures to destroy stubborn fat cells to eliminate them from your problem areas for good.
How Long Does It Take to See Results From Coolsculpting?
Surgical body contouring procedures like liposuction use surgical techniques to immediately remove stubborn fat from the body. However, non-invasive body contouring treatments like Coolsculpting don’t deliver immediate results, but you will see noticeable improvements in your problem areas. It takes the body time to eliminate the dead fat cells from your target treatment area.
Most patients begin to see apparent improvements in their target area within 12 weeks of beginning the treatment process. Some patients see results sooner, but it depends on your body and how quickly it processes, transports, and flushes those dead fat cells from the body. Regardless of when your results appear, they will be noticeable, and you will experience significantly decreased fat volume in your problem areas.
Enhancing Your Results
There are some steps that you can take to enhance your results and help assist your body in eliminating those dead fat cells as quickly as possible. By supporting your lymphatic system, living a healthy lifestyle, and drinking plenty of water, you can ensure that your body will be able to adequately process and eliminate those cells so so that you can enjoy your results as quickly as possible.
How to Support Your Lymphatic System
You may not ever think about your lymphatic system or even know how to support it. Your lymphatic system is an important bodily system responsible for eliminating waste, balancing bodily fluids, and helping protect the body against infection. It also is it plays a part in assisting the digestive processes and removing waste from the body.
If you’ve never really thought about your lymphatic system until now, knowing how it works and how you can keep it healthy and operating as efficiently as possible can help you support your body after your treatment. Then, you can rest assured that you are doing what it takes to efficiently remove those dead fat cells.
Exercise helps you do more than just reach your body goals. While it is essential to increasing circulation and promoting cardiovascular health, it is also an important way to promote a healthy lymphatic system.
Sweating, daily movement, and increased blood flow will all help promote a healthy lymphatic system so that it can adequately drain fluids and eliminate excess waste from the body, those dead fat cells included. Plus, exercising after your Coolsculpting treatments can help you continue to improve other body areas that are responding to your diet and fitness efforts.
Drink Plenty of Water
Water is important to overall health, fitness goals, weight loss, and the list goes on. However, it’s also a very important way to promote a healthy lymphatic system. Drinking plenty of water each day, especially following your body contouring treatment, will help your lymphatic system flush out waste and excess fluids and help you reach your goals as quickly as possible.
Plus, drinking plenty of water has other added benefits. It can help reduce water retention, give you clear skin, and help your body stay hydrated, which will help energize you and keep you full throughout the day so that you don’t start snacking on foods you shouldn’t be eating.
Consider Scheduling a Lymphatic Massage
Lymphatic massages are growing in popularity because they work. The lymphatic system doesn’t operate on its own but instead depends on other body systems so that it can efficiently move waste and fluids through the lymphatic system.
If you want to kickstart your lymphatic system, you can find a massage therapist who specializes in lymphatic massage therapy. This treatment involves different techniques designed to help promote circulation, a healthy lymphatic system, and fluid release from the body.
Consider Your Environment
Many people don’t realize that substances and toxins in their homes and everyday environments affect their bodies in countless negative ways. The cleaning products you use, your home’s air filtration system, and even the products you use in your home can cause your body to overwork to eliminate excess toxins from the system. You can promote a healthy lymphatic system so that your body can efficiently eliminate those dead fat cells in your treatment area.
You can do so by helping take any extra burden off your body. When your body doesn’t have to process toxins and harmful chemicals that you have been exposed to, like cleaning products, and even certain candles, it will be able to operate more efficiently, and you’ll be able to reach your body goals that much sooner and be all the healthier for it.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is an effective body contouring treatment that uses cold temperatures to freeze fat cells, initiating a scientific process called cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis occurs when fat cells are frozen, crystallized, and then die. This specific CoolSculpting treatment initiates a process that the body then completes via the lymphatic system. It uses the lymphatic system to remove those dead fat cells from the system, leading to a more contoured body.
Is It Painful?
One of the benefits of this body contouring treatment is that it is virtually painless. You won’t need anesthesia or pain medication to comfortably endure the treatment. Once your technician applies the cooling pad to your target treatment areas, you’ll feel a very cold sensation as the device blasts your unwanted fat cells with cold temperatures.
Once the area becomes numb, you won’t feel anything and can relax as the device destroys your stubborn fat cells. Patients spend their treatment times relaxing, watching TV, reading, and enjoying the fact that they are one step closer to their goal body.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Because different patients have different goals, each treatment plan will look a little bit different. Some patients can reach their goals after one treatment; others need several depending on the amount of fat or the total number of areas they choose to treat.
An evaluation with one of our body contouring experts can help determine how many treatments you will need. As long as you follow your technician’s recommended treatment schedule, you can expect some incredible results.
Will This Treatment Make Me Lose Weight?
While you may see the number on the scale go down after completing the recommended number of treatments, this treatment is not a weight-loss treatment. Instead, it is a body contouring treatment designed to help you look tighter and more toned in a way that your lifestyle has not.
The best way to measure your progress is with a measuring tape, not the scale because as your body eliminates those dead fat cells from your treatment area, you’ll see a more significant change in your measurements rather than your overall weight. Since this treatment is not a weight-loss treatment, it’s best that patients reach their weight goal before scheduling treatments to see the best results.
How Long Will the Results Last?
Many people don’t realize that the body cannot regrow fat cells. By the time you are a teenager, your body has all of the fat cells it will have for life. It won’t grow new ones, and any removed from the body will not come back. Traditionally, the only way to remove fat cells from the body was through liposuction, a surgical procedure. Now, this non-invasive treatment can destroy fat cells and force the body to remove them for good.
Maintaining Permanent Results
Once those fat cells leave the body as your body flushes them through the lymphatic system, they won’t come back. However, since CoolSculpting only eliminates a percentage of the fat cells in your problem areas, those remaining cells still have the potential to expand if you gain weight after your treatment.
For that reason, it’s important that you take steps to maintain permanent results by living the healthiest lifestyle possible. As long as you eat a healthy diet, exercise consistently, and avoid significant weight gain, you’ll be able to enjoy your newly contoured body long-term.
