It’s been a while since I last updated you on my Coolsculpting journey. This is because I did 2 treatments on my back, and in between those treatments you need to allow the Coolsculpting to take effect over 10 weeks. So, it takes a little bit of time.
After the first treatment, I definitely noticed a small difference. It takes about 8-10 weeks to really see the change, and actually, I should say it takes that time to FEEL the change because you don’t see it as much as you feel it. I began noticing that certain pants felt more comfortable and that I liked how my overall shape looked in certain styles that I used to feel more insecure in.
The second round was the real game changer though.
Coolsculpting Update (Before / After Photos!)
After the second round of Coolsculpting on my back, I really saw and felt a difference. I mean, the proof is in the pudding: ie. the proof is in the before and after:
Because the process of Coolsculpting is quite slow (it takes about 8-10 weeks for you to actually see results) it can be easy to not really notice the results yourself, which is why photos are so important. The photos really document the difference made by this treatment and showed me that there not only was a huge difference in how my clothes fit but also how my shape looked.
Now, we’re moving forward and treating my stomach area which is really exciting for me. I have always felt that my mid-section was my biggest “problem area” and so I am really excited to see the difference there. Since fitness has always been a part of my life (I have to stay in relatively good shape because of my spinal condition and spinal fusion surgery) I feel that I am a very healthy and fit person but I do have areas that I’ve found really challenging to get in shape and it’s really exciting for me to see if this may help that area.
I know Coolsculpting is an expensive treatment which is why I always tell people that this is not a treatment that you should go into debt over – really, never go into a debt over any kind of vanity treatment. This is a treatment for those who have a problem area that they would really like to fix, but it won’t financially devastate them to do so.
In addition, I feel it has to be noted that Coolsculpting is not a weight loss solution. It’s simply a solution for small areas with stubborn fat. It will get rid of small pockets of fat, but it will not completely change your body. The difference will be subtle and mostly just noticeable to you.
I do think this treatment is worthwhile for those who have taken issue with a certain spot on their body and having Coolsculpting would help them feel better about that area. While I entirely feel people should love themselves and celebrate their bodies, I also know that we all have areas we would like to improve and sometimes exercise and healthy eating just isn’t enough. I have never been someone who’s been against someone going and getting a treatment done to make themselves look and feel better. Basically, my opinion is: You do you!
*If you are against treatments like these, I absolutely understand. I am not saying that this is something everyone should get, or that is 100% necessary. This is a vanity treatment and is an individual choice.
