3 Great Tips to Retain Your CoolSculpting Results
Now that you’ve got the body you want, how can you keep it looking fabulous? Here are 3 must-do’s to maintain your CoolSculpting procedure results.
1. Eat right.
Even though you’ll have fewer fat cells in the treated areas, the remaining ones you still have can continue to increase and decrease in size depending on the number of calories you consume everyday. If you eat too much, your fat cells will expand, and so will your waistline! So, make sure to eat a healthy diet and veer clear of foods that are highly processed or have “empty” calories. You may even want to seek the advice of a nutritionist who can customize an eating plan that’s unique to your body.
2. Burn fat cells off.
Your body was made to move, so get moving! Exercise is a great way to burn calories to prevent those fat cells from expanding.
Hate exercising? Don’t worry! There’s no need to go to the gym if you want to get physical. You can do so many other things to burn calories, including walking, dancing, and swimming.
- Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
- Deep clean your house.
- Learn self-defence.
Anything that gets your body moving is great. Scientific research shows that even laughing can burn a significant number of calories! All you need is 30 minutes a day of a healthy diet and exercise plan.
3. Stay hydrated.
After your treatment, your body works hard to eliminate all of the fat cells that have been crystallized with your treatment. Your body does this by treating these destroyed fat cells like waste matter. As the fat cells freeze and die (something that is technically known as apoptosis), they are eliminated from the body by the lymphatic system. Destroyed fat does not enter the blood stream, which is why there is no risk of fat embolism or increase of triglycerides.
By staying well hydrated, you’ll be helping your body perform bodily functions better, so you can flush away fat cells, literally! While it can take up to 6 months for these cells to be eliminated, we recommend that you continue to stay well hydrated even after this time as part of a healthier lifestyle.
