Would you like to tone up that tummy? Firm up your arms or lose that padding on your thighs?
When it comes to waging war on those stubborn inches and rolls, there’s a cool non-invasive procedure that has been getting a warm reception from men and women across North America.
It’s CoolSculpting – a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis that targets, cools and eliminates fat cells without causing damage to other tissue. The result is noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction in treated areas within just two months. This revolutionary procedure will allow you to say ‘Hasta la vista baby’ to stubborn body fat.
And since the procedure is completely non-invasive, the patient can return to normal activities immediately. For those who enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle, that means not having to put away your trusty pair of running shoes or freezing your gym membership. Unlike liposuction or other surgery that involves a scalpel and a lengthy recovery period, patients are advised to get to the gym ASAP after their CoolSculpting session.
Here are just 6 good reasons why you should join the gym after CoolSculpting.
1. Speed Up the Slimming Process
Over the course of the following weeks, your body will eliminate the dead cells naturally.
The old adage, “Good things come to those who wait,” definitely applies to this one. As the fat flushes out of your system naturally, you can expect to see dramatic results after about two months. Nevertheless, people have even reported seeing improvements in as little as three weeks.
While the CoolSculpting procedure motivates most people to continue on with a healthy lifestyle, it does not require the patient to follow specific guidelines before or after treatment. However, it has been proven that those who experience the most dramatic results in a shorter period of time are the ones who engage in regular physical activity.
You’re also more likely to stick to a healthy diet if you’re physically active, which will prevent you from undoing the all that fat freezing.
2. Maintain Long-Term Results
During the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as the patient maintains his or her weight with diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable.
Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as is if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew by taking even better care of themselves. We certainly don’t blame them!
3. Tighten & Tone Flabby Skin
Sudden weight loss can result in sagging skin. Nip that possibility in the bud by toning up at the gym, especially where the areas targeted during your CoolSculpting session.
4. Keep Expectations in Check
Body Contouring is not alternative to a healthy lifestyle; it’s intended for those who have fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.
There is no such thing as a magical machine that will eliminate all of your unwanted body fat forever – at least not yet. So, until that time comes, you must be prepared to take the steps necessary to upkeep your results. These procedures are definitely an investment, and in order to protect it, you must be prepared to maintain a diligent diet and exercise regime. Bottom line: put down the cheese puffs and pick up some free weights.
5. Because, Well…Why Not?
Now that you’re looking or on your way to looking slim and trim, you’ll have more confidence to sport that athletic wear that has been hiding in your closet. Rather than hide in baggy sweats, it’s time to embrace that new bod or new-bod-to-be and continue to fine tune it into the lean, mean machine you’ve always dreamed of.
In addition to maintaining and speeding up your CoolSculpting sessions, you’ll lower your cholesterol, improve your heart health, rev up your metabolism, combat health conditions and disease, improve your mood and increase your energy levels.
6. To Remain a CoolSculpting Candidate
Just because you’ve had a few successful CoolSculpting sessions doesn’t give you free reign to sabotage your diet or blow of the gym forever. To stay a candidate for any future sessions, you’ll need to stay within 20 to 30 pounds of your ideal body weight. This is because the procedure does not suck the fat out or cause weight loss. Regular exercise will help you stay a healthy weight.
And there you have it, six pretty convincing reasons you should head to the gym as soon as possible following your CoolSculpting session. Just keep in mind that while no downtime is required from this non-invasive weight-loss method, you may experience temporary bruising, tingling or soreness. If that’s the case, wait a couple of days until you’re feeling 100 per cent back to normal.
