Coolsculpting is a non-invasive procedure that removes stubborn fat in the body to help you achieve the body that you have always wanted by transforming your appearance. After doing Coolsculpting, there are exercises that you need to do to help maintain and boost the results.
So, what is Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting involves cryolipolysis which is a method that removes fat cells through controlled cooling. This method was discovered by doctors who noticed that there was a gradual reduction of fat cells in the cheeks of children that ate more popsicles—interestingly enough.
Fast forward to today—and Coolsculpting is now a popular way of safely removing body fat non-invasively and permanently. It includes a one to two-hour session where fat cells are crystallized by the cooling panels that work on your body. Over time, these fat cells will be naturally expelled.
However, this process should not be confused with liposuction, which involves the removal of fat through surgical suction and procedure. In many ways, Coolsculpting is more beneficial than liposuction because it is low in risk, non-invasive, and requires a shorter amount of time to recover. Patients who have done Coolsculpting can go back to the gym soon after the procedure to improve their results. Having a lifestyle of healthy eating and regular exercise can also help improve and maintain the results.
Speeding up Coolsculpting results
Adding exercise to your lifestyle after undergoing Coolsculpting will speed up results over a longer period of time. Exercise is not necessary—but combining it with sensible eating habits can help you achieve results. You can develop a workout regimen that targets the areas that you have cool sculpted.
Benefits of Exercise
Exercise has the following benefits for maintaining a healthy body outlook:
It increases the process of fat reduction.
After working out, dopamine is released which leaves you with a feeling of euphoria.
Exercise provides access to great physical and emotional wellbeing.
What exercises should I do?
Coolsculpting patients should do exercises that build muscles. Building muscle in your body means that you are slowly equipping your body with the tools to get rid of fat naturally.
Weight lifting is a simple option that can be done at the gym or home. Lifting weights at the gym is generally better for beginners because you can get help from trainers on-site about how to properly use the different equipment and safely target different body parts.
Slowly work your way up to lifting heavyweights. The worst thing you can do to yourself is get injured by straining your muscles.
When starting, beginners should exercise three times per week for 30 minutes each session. This will give the muscles time to recover and you can develop a workout routine that suits your availability and lifestyle.
If you’re beginning this journey from an inactive lifestyle, incorporating aerobic exercises is a good option for building endurance. Dance classes or brisk walking are both great for beginners.
What happens if I don’t exercise?
Fat cells can return if you do not exercise after your Coolsculpting. The same bad habits that caused fat initially will cause it to come back. Since body contouring is an investment, you should protect it to ensure that it lasts longer.
Having a proper exercise regimen after Coolsculpting is a better way to increase and maintain the results. To achieve lasting results, you need to protect the investment of money and time.
Regular exercise with healthy eating is the foundation of maintaining your new physique. Go slow with the high-intensity exercises if your body doesn’t have the endurance to begin with. Seek assistance from your doctor on recommendations for a workout plan for you.
