5 Tips for Recovering From CoolSculpting

With CoolSculpting in West Vancouver, BC, you can obtain a toned silhouette without any surgery or extensive downtime. But while this non-invasive procedure minimizes your recovery period, it is still essential to learn what to expect during your recovery for optimal results.

To help you through your journey of losing unwanted fat pockets, here are five beneficial tips on recovering from CoolSculpting.

1. Wear Comfortable Clothing

When you go through CoolSculpting, the technology freezes the fat cells deep within your skin. Since the procedure uses an applicator device applied directly to your skin, it’s much less aggressive than surgeries such as liposuction. Still, the treatment may create soreness across the treatment area.

During and after your CoolSculpting appointment, we recommend wearing loose-fitting clothing that does not put any pressure on your skin. The goal is to aid your comfort, prevent soreness, and allow you to recover while feeling more relaxed.

2. Do Not Overexert Yourself

Little to no downtime is one of the most significant advantages of CoolSculpting, but the procedure may still leave you with some residual soreness, redness, and bruising. These effects are no cause for alarm and should resolve on their own in a few days’ time if you follow all the recovery tips we give you.

If you feel any pain or discomfort, do not overexert yourself after your treatment. Avoiding physically strenuous activities such as extensive workouts or demanding sports should enable you to breeze through your CoolSculpting recovery. 

3. Stay Hydrated After the Treatment

After you go through CoolSculpting, the fat cells frozen by this treatment gradually get flushed out of your body through your lymphatic system. The process is virtually painless, but you can take steps to hasten it.

To improve your blood flow, stay hydrated after your treatment by keeping a canteen full of fresh water close to hand and sipping from it every few minutes. If you get thirsty, that’s a sign you are already mildly dehydrated. If you have trouble remembering to drink water, set a timer on your phone or install a hydration app.

4. Get Some OTC Painkillers if Needed

While going through CoolSculpting recovery, you may experience some mild soreness. Dr. Shadan Kabiri can give you her expert advice on which over-the-counter pain medication will best alleviate your discomfort.

Since OTC painkillers have no risk of side effects for most people, you can confidently find a solution that works for you. If you worry about bruising and pain, be sure to mention it to Dr. Kabiri before getting this treatment.

5. Speak to Your Provider

We can customize your entire CoolSculpting journey according to your requirements, including your recovery process. This attention to detail will help resolve any concerns you may have and manage any side effects that are specific to your case.

Keeping this in mind, tell Dr. Kabiri about any unexpected side effects and concerns that come up in the days following your appointment. She’ll help you breeze through the process to obtain your ideal figure.
