CoolSculpting® sounds like the magic fat-erasing wand we’ve all been looking for, and, in many ways, it can be. But there are a few caveats to this procedure that you should know before signing yourself up. Take a look at these three biggies.
Your CoolSculpting® Results Can Take Time
Depending on which areas of your body are being treated, you could be in and out of your CoolSculpting® appointment in as little as an hour. But that doesn’t mean you should expect to walk out the door a couple inches smaller.
CoolSculpting® results can take several weeks to fully develop, and you may need an additional treatment to really optimize your slimmer new look.
Be Prepared for Some Swelling
One of the biggest benefits of CoolSculpting® over a surgical procedure like liposuction is that it doesn’t require extensive downtime. However, don’t be alarmed if your skin becomes red and swollen immediately after your procedure. These are common side effects and they should diminish on their own as your body heals.
You could see beautiful results from CoolSculpting® in as little as three weeks, once the swelling has gone down.
CoolSculpting® Isn’t a Green Light for Binge-Eating
While it might be tempting to kick your treadmill to the curb and binge-eat chocolate cake until the cows come home, unfortunately, CoolSculpting® won’t stop your body from gaining weight in the future. You still need to keep up with your excellent diet and exercise habits if you want your slim, sleek new shape to stick around.
