Even in light of everything going on in our world right now, it’s just as important now as ever to maintain a healthy fitness routine. Just because you are home doesn’t mean you can’t create an exercise regimen that keeps your weight in check (let’s not forget all those snacks from stress eating), and maintain the weight loss benefits that come with CoolSculpting.
Whether you have recently had a CoolSculpting treatment and are beginning to see results, or you are planning to schedule an appointment in the near future, it’s important to understand why this treatment is only one of the steps you’ll need to take on your journey towards weight loss.
What We Love About CoolSculpting
This FDA-approved treatment is a quick non-invasive alternative to liposuction. It’s great for targeting areas of unwanted fat including your abs, thighs, back, upper arms, hips, buttocks, and double chin. By freezing fat cells, CoolSculpting destroys them entirely leaving you with a leaner, slimmer physique.
Exercise and CoolSculpting
If you’ve had a CoolSculpting treatment, you’ll want to maximize the benefits you’re seeing. Once you’ve slimmed away the unwanted fat, it’s your job to keep it off. How does exercise help? Here are three ways:
1. It Tightens Skin
When you make a regular routine of resistance exercise—like weight lifting, swimming—you’ll see an improvement in your overall muscle tone. Weight loss, particularly in extreme cases, can leave behind loose skin. Improving muscle tone can, to some extent, help with that. You might also consider some of our popular body contouring procedures as well.
2. It Keeps the Weight Off
Just because you’ve gotten great results from your fat reduction treatment, does not mean it will last forever. You can maintain your post-CoolSculpting body when you follow smart eating habits and exercise regularly. Repeat treatments after 2 to 4 months is also common.
3. It Speeds Up Your Weight Loss
After your CoolSculpting procedure, you’ll start noticing results within the first couple of weeks. Wait 6-8 weeks and you’ll really start to see a difference. If you add exercise and resistance training to your routine, it can really help speed up those positive weight loss results by eliminating fat cells.
By combining good nutrition with exercise and CoolSculpting, you’ll be on your way to meeting, and exceeding, your weight loss goals in no time.
