Dr. Bucay is interested in helping patients of our San Antonio offices get the results they want from body-sculpting. Understanding that every person has unique needs, she has equipped our facilities with various modalities. One of the most common devices used to improve body contours, CoolSculpting, has been used in our offices more than 2,000 times. We were one of the first practices in San Antonio to provide this treatment, so we have seen a thing or two. Here, we discuss a few simple suggestions to maximize the results of CoolSculpting treatment.
Maximize Your CoolSculpting Treatment
- Get your beauty sleep. In this day and age of go, go, go, it’s easy to develop the mindset that sleep is overrated. That is not the case at all. According to one study presented at the Endocrine Society national meeting, as little as 30-minutes of sleep deficit per day can increase one’s risk of obesity. Less sleep means more cortisol production, which means increased appetite. It’s pretty simple. Sleep: what an easy way to support CoolSculpting results!
- Stay hydrated. The idea that any liquid will do just won’t do here. Hydration comes from consuming adequate amounts of water. Those 8 glasses a day? They actually aren’t enough. Adult women need about 90 oz. of water a day to stay hydrated. This matters because water is essential for physical energy and metabolism.
- Follow-up with your doctor. CoolSculpting takes time to give you those noticeable results you’re after. Because fat melts away over several weeks, it’s easy to miss just how dramatically your body has changed. Your follow up is an opportunity to ask questions and also to see evidence of the change in your contours.
- Don’t diet. If we’ve learned anything in the past several decades, it’s that dieting can do more harm than good. What is needed to maintain CoolSculpting results is a way of life that supports healthy weight. Eating more fruits and vegetables and less tacos and Tequila is a great start for long-term results.
