CoolSculpting® is the most widely used non-invasive body sculpting method and has brought hope to millions of people who need help with removing those areas of stubborn fat. As a leading CoolSculpting® practice located in the San Francisco bay area we here at Sculpt MD have some pointers for you to get the most out of your CoolSculpting® treatment and experience.
1. Marking the right area
Probably the most critical element of the CoolSculpting® treatment is having someone who is experienced and knowledgeable perform the markings of where the treatments will be performed. This can make or break the treatment and results, if markings are not done properly it can lead to uneven or sub-optimal results.
2. Information is power
Make sure you are educated by the CoolSculpting® provider on what to expect on treatment day, how the treatment feels and what to expect in the post treatment period. The more informed you are regarding the treatment the less intimidating it will be and the more comfortable you will feel both during and after the treatment.
3. Comfort is everything!
Make sure you feel comfortable with the staff of the practice who will be performing the procedure, even ask to see the facilities’ CoolSculpting® room to ensure it is a relaxing and comfortable environment which will provide you with the best treatment day experience.
4. Embrace the massage!
A properly done post treatment massage is one of the most important aspects of the CoolSculpting® treatment. Studies have shown significantly less fat reduction when the massage is not done properly. It is essential that the post treatment massage is done with a particular technique and for a certain length which will lead to better results.
5. Hydration is key
In our experience patients who come into treatment day well hydrated and continue to stay hydrated throughout the treatment have a better experience with the treatment. We advise all of our patients to drink plenty of water leading up to treatment day and during the treatment.
