Post-Pregnancy Coolsculpting Treatment

Pregnancy is already quite hard as it is. But having to think about what awaits after the pregnancy and birth can be even more stressful. Hearing stories about the remaining postpartum fat will have anyone worried about their body appearance.

There are ways to break down this excess fat, but it may take you a very long time and a lot of effort. And considering how you’ll most likely be busy giving all your undivided attention and care to your newborn, how are you going to find the time to fit this rigorous fitness routine into your schedule? Luckily, there’s an easier way out. The Coolsculpting treatment in NYC has really taken off recently, in particular with individuals looking to reduce their postpartum fat.

Learning about this revolutionary treatment could help you lose that postpartum fat and return to your earlier form, without any additional difficulty or hassle. 

Why Choose Coolsculpting

You’ll find several ways you can get rid of excess fat. There are the natural methods, like exercising, but we’ve already established how this may not be an option for everyone. There’s also dieting and living a healthier lifestyle, however, without the additional exercise, a simple diet won’t get you far.

There are also plenty of cosmetic treatments that specialize in burning away excess fat. They usually include the injection of a compound that burns away the fat. Treatments like liposuction resort to simply cutting out the fat via precise instruments. 

While all these treatments are effective in their own way, they come with the downside of leaving behind side-effects and marks on your body, from small incision scars, to bruises. Coolsculpting has no such side-effects.

It’s an entirely non-invasive procedure. This means not a single skin cell, muscle fiber or any other part of the body is damaged or harmed. Yes, not even something as tiny as an injection. The treatment works entirely on the outside of the body and causes no harmful side-effects.

For mothers with newborn babies, this is absolutely crucial. Having to take care of a newborn and look after your own body because of side-effects will completely drain your energy and leave you exhausted. You want all your attention to be on your newborn, not those little bruises and scars after the treatment.

How Coolsculpting Works

But how does Coolsculpting accomplish this? How can you trim away excess fat without making a single incision?

The fat cells in our bodies, as with any other cell, are naturally programmed to self-destruct through a process called “apoptosis”. This can be triggered in a variety of ways, mainly when the cell is damaged beyond repair and has to be isolated and disposed of. Fat cells can be stimulated to go into apoptosis by exposing them to low temperatures.

When fat cells come into contact with cold temperatures long enough, apoptosis is activated and they begin to die out one-by-one, until that area of your body no longer has excess fat. The process is entirely natural, with the only artificial factor being the stimulation of the fat cells with cold temperatures. 

What to Expect from the Procedure

The Coolsculpting equipment is nothing more than a few metallic pads which are placed on the area of the body that needs to be treated. They get pretty cold, with temperatures being as low as 11 Fahrenheit (around -11 degrees Celsius). That sounds pretty cold, and it is, but considering how your skin will get used to it within the first 10 minutes, you don’t have much to worry about.

After those first 10 minutes, the skin goes numb and you won’t feel anything for the rest of the procedure, which usually lasts anywhere from 40 to 50 minutes. All-in-all, it’s really not a scary treatment in any way. It’s pretty quick, when compared to other cosmetic treatments, is pretty much painless, and during the procedure itself, you can sit back and relax. It’s hardly a treatment you’d call “tense”.

What Awaits You After the Treatment

Now comes the waiting. Since Coolsculpting makes use of your body’s natural abilities, as opposed to artificial compounds and injections, it may need several months to complete the entire process. This isn’t to say that you won’t feel any improvements over this time period; you will, just very gradually.

For the final Coolsculpting results to become visible, you’ll need to wait up to half a year, as the fat cells slowly die out and leave that area contoured. It seems like a long time to wait, but with a newborn, you’ll see how fast this time will fly by. And the next thing you know, all that postpartum fat is gone and you’re left with a sculpted tummy, that looks as contoured and fit as it was before the pregnancy.

During this time, you also won’t have to worry about side-effects. As we mentioned earlier, Coolsculpting is non-invasive through and through. Since not a single skin cell is harmed throughout the whole treatment, the side-effects are very forgiving. Following the first day of the treatment, the treated area will feel dry and look a little red. This is completely natural after prolonged exposure to cold temperatures. It may also ache, but this will go away within the first day, if not after several hours.

You don’t need to do anything during the recovery phase. Your body will naturally recover and continue burning away the excess fat on its own.
