The Dos and Don’ts of CoolSculpting®

coolsculpting Summer is here and everyone is ready to don swimwear and shorts. However, if you’re concerned about a little excess weight or cellulite, then you may be reluctant to have as much fun in the sun as everyone else. Do not worry. There is still time to get a “summer body.” You can jumpstart the process of realizing a new you with CoolSculpting®.

The Dos

Continue Exercising

CoolSculpting is non-surgical and non-invasive, so, while it may rid your body of unwanted fat, it does not necessarily tone and re-shape your body. If you want a more striking physique, then you will need to add targeted workouts to your daily routine to experience optimal results. Exercising will also prevent your remaining fat cells from growing in size.

Drink One Liter of Water Daily

Keep in mind that CoolSculpting works by flushing the fat from your body through your digestive tract. You will keep your digestive tract healthy and functioning by staying hydrated with water. It is important that you hydrate with water specifically. Juices, even Gatorade, Body Armor, and coconut water, aren’t conducive to flushing the fat out of your body.

Schedule Regular Sessions

CoolSculpting is a process. One session is not enough to achieve and maintain desired results. Rather, if you’re like most people, then you’ll need four to twelve fat-freezing sessions to see a noteworthy change in your physique. Also, you should book your appointments at least 30 days apart from each other.

The Don’ts

Only Go Once

You will need four to twelve sessions to achieve your body sculpting goals. You may also need to schedule a new session every once in a while for maintenance.


You may assume that it is okay to eat more than usual because your body is naturally expelling excess weight, but this is not true. You must continue to monitor your diet during and in between your CoolSculpting sessions. A high-protein, low-carb diet is best for amazing CoolSculpting results.
