Get the Most Out of Your CoolSculpting
with Lymphatic Massage
CoolSculpting is a procedure that freezes fat causing it to die. It is typically used on “problem areas” with stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Over time, these dead fat cells are eliminated from the body by the lymphatic system. The process takes up to 3-4 months for the final results to be evident.
To get the most out of your CoolSculpting, get regular lymphatic massage to help the body get rid of the dead fat cells more efficiently.
Because CoolSculpting intentionally damages fat cells, the body responds with inflammation. This inflammation takes about 30 days to peak after the procedure.
It Looks Worse Before It Looks Better
Although CoolSculpting is non-invasive (no cutting or puncturing the skin), it’s pretty tough in the body. The technical name for CoolSculpting is “cryolipolysis” which means “freezing fat bursting.” In essence, it’s a type of spot freezing that causes fat cells to burst.
Bruising and pain can remain for several weeks after the CoolSculpting procedure. People often wonder if something has gone wrong with their procedure.
Lymphatic drainage massage can help to reduce the pain, swelling, and bruising caused by CoolSculpting.
How Lymphatic Drainage Massage Helps
Eliminate Fat Cells After CoolSculpting
All destroyed components of the fat cells are taken up and eliminated through the lymph system. They are then permanently eliminated from the body.
The lymphatic system is a secondary circulatory system that runs throughout the body. Two of its main jobs are to drain swelling and remove waste from the body.
“Waste” is anything that the body needs to get rid of. That can be the byproducts of normal cell function (“cell poop”) and it can be the broken down parts of dead cells like the fat cells that have died as a result of CoolSculpting.
The lymphatic system gathers up this extra fluid and broken down fat cells and then delivers them back to the bloodstream. It is then the job of the liver to break down the remaining bits of fat cells and the job of the kidneys to help you to pee out what can’t be broken down.
