4 Post-CoolSculpting® Fashion Tips: What to Wear After

CoolSculpting® can freeze away fat from almost anywhere on the body—generally provided that there’s enough excess bulk to grab onto. While the results take anywhere from weeks to months to be seen, you can lose up to 20 to 25 percent of the volume in a specific area. Finally minimizing that stubborn fat on your thighs, or belly, or double chin can be a major confidence boost. Naturally, you’ll be ready to show off your slimmer, more shapely form as soon as you can. Check out these fun outfit ideas for Germain Dermatology patients who have had this fat freezing treatment at their Charleston practice—or anyone else who can’t wait to go shopping after CoolSculpting®.

Wear Clothes That Flatter

You generally don’t lose much overall body weight with CoolSculpting® and clothing sizes won’t usually go down, but this method of body contouring is great for making fat disappear from isolated problem areas. The end result may be more balanced proportions and a more toned, youthful appearance.

Your overall body type may look slightly different once your results are visible. After CoolSculpting®, you can toss out baggy clothes and opt for tighter options, such as belted dresses that accentuate your smaller waist, slim-fitting shirts for a flatter abdomen, or skinny jeans to highlight your thigh gap.

Try More Revealing Shirts

Instead of constantly hiding your arms in long sleeves, you can now flaunt them in sleeveless tops, thin straps, or tight sleeves after having CoolSculpting® to reduce back fat or upper arm fat.

Be Adventurous with Colors

As we all know, black makes you look slimmer. Many people who feel self conscious about their body wear darker, neutral, or more drab tones. Now that you’ve slimmed down that one trouble zone, try lighter shades like white, pastels, or patterns to bring attention to your frame.

Have Your Old Clothes Altered

There’s no reason to get rid of all your old favorites. You can have particular pieces professionally altered to fit your new frame. It’s the best of both worlds!

Cryolipolysis and COVID-19

While COVID-19 has changed the way the country works—sheltering millions of Americans in their homes and disrupting daily life on virtually every level—it has not changed how cryolipolysis works. Charleston’s Germain Dermatology wants to remind anyone who has come in recently for a CoolSculpting® session that their body is not taking a break from breaking down unwanted fat cells during this down time.

That means even if you were hoping to come in for another session in the coming days, but are now practicing social distancing and postponing every outing except for the most critical, you’re still getting the benefits of your last treatment—even if that treatment was months ago.

The cold of a CoolSculpting® session is merely the first step in nonsurgical body contouring. It starts the process, but then your body takes over and works for weeks and months to clear away fat cells damaged by the treatment’s low temperatures. This is a natural reaction, and it happens no matter what else you are doing: reading, bingeing a show, jogging a minimum distance of 6 feet away from someone else, working remotely, planting a garden … whatever!

Visible changes can take one to three months to appear, with the most ideal results appearing at around six months. Best of all? Those results are due to fat cells leaving the body, not shrinking. Scheduling a follow-up visit a little later than you would have hoped is not going to “undo” the slimming effects of your most recent visit. In fact, since the effects are cumulative, you now have time to enjoy your initial fat reduction and look forward to your next appointment when life gets back to more of a normal routine.

It’s understandable to have concerns during this time. That’s why our team is available to answer any questions you may have about your prior treatments, previously scheduled upcoming appointments, and what to do next. Call us at 1-844-SC-CHILL or send us a message online to get answers.
