Cosmetic surgeries are a convenient way to achieve the desired look with safe and effective treatments.
Most cosmetic surgical treatments are safe as the FDA now approves them. People opt for such cosmetic treatments to enhance their appearance, hide the signs of aging or attain a specific look they desire.
Nearly two million cosmetic non-surgical procedures are performed each year in San Diego, California. Cosmetic procedures in the city are growing in popularity on a daily basis.
It is believed that just as much as it is for women, men in San Diego are also now increasingly getting drawn towards such look-enhancing procedures. Botox, fillers, nose reshaping, and CoolSculpting San Diego are popular treatments in the city.
Among these treatments, CoolSculpting is a relatively new technology to remove excess fat from specific areas of the body such as the back, abdomen, upper arm, and inner thighs.
What is CoolSculpting?
Millions of people struggle to get rid of some stubborn excess fat that does not burn away even after following a strict diet and regular exercising. Before CoolSculpting, the only option to remove fat was liposuction which involved surgical treatments and longer recovery time.
However, CoolSculpting employs a technology known as Cryolipolysis, which involves using below-zero temperatures in a controlled environment to destroy and crystallize fat.
Compared to liposuction and other surgical treatments, the downtime after the treatment is negligible, and it does not cause any damage to the surrounding tissues or muscles.
Things to know before CoolSculpting treatment
1. Lose any extra weight
It is not a weight-loss treatment but rather helps you get rid of pockets of stubborn fat and bulges from specific areas like the hips, abdomen, and thighs. So, it is not the ideal treatment to lose fifteen to twenty pounds.
To get the best results from the treatment, you need to be either near your target weight or at least five pounds more from it.
2. Skip certain supplements and medicines
Some supplements often alter the blood flow, which can increase the risk of bruising. Even over-the-counter medications like aspirin or vitamin E can make you prone to bruising after the treatment.
3. Take care of the skin
It is recommended to stray away from the Californian sunshine if you are getting CoolSculpting in San Diego, as any exposure or sunburn may make the treatment uncomfortable.
Moreover, if you have a wound, bruise, or even a small cut at the area of CoolSculpting, consider postponing the treatment until the wound is fully healed.
4. You can still gain weight after the treatment
CoolSculpting permanently destroys the fat cells, and it is gone forever. But, the surrounding fat cells that are untouched can still change their size. So, it is important to maintain a proper diet and a strict exercise regimen post the treatment.
5. You may need more than one session
It takes the body quite a while to process the damaged fat cells, which may take up to two to four weeks before the results are visible after the initial session. While one session is adequate in most cases, some people feel the need to get another session to eliminate the fat properly.
CoolSculpting can help you maintain the desired physique and uplift your confidence. Once you have decided to get CoolSculpting, you must ask any further questions you may have from the provider to understand the treatment and the after-care instructions.
