A New Look for a New Year

A New Look for a New Year

Seven months ago, my sister married the love of her life in an intimate, church ceremony. I was so excited when she asked me to be the matron of honor at her wedding. Because I wanted to wear my hair in an elegant French twist at the wedding, I didn’t cut it during the first half of last year. After the wedding, I planned to cut my hair in my usual bob style. However, after receiving many compliments for my longer hair, I decided to let it continue to grow out. I’m not sure what I want to do with my hair for the New Year. However, I know I want to continue experimenting with new, exciting looks. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best hair trends for the upcoming year. Enjoy!

3 Tips Before Getting Coolsculpting

Coolscupting fat treatments are an innovative, non-surgical way to target stubborn areas of fat on the body. The fat cells in your chosen area are frozen and over the next several weeks will begin to dissolve. The end result should be a more sleek and toned appearance. Coolscupting is commonly performed on the stomach, thighs, or anywhere fat has remained after reaching your ideal weight through diet and exercise. Here are a few tips before you get started: 

Determine if You Are a Good Candidate

While coolscupting fat treatments can be highly effective at giving you your desired shape and physique, they are not a good fit for everyone. Coolsculpting does not help you lose weight, it only gives you a more smooth and toned appearance.

If you are currently trying to lose weight, you should continue with your efforts through diet and exercise. Once you hit your ideal weight, coolscupting fat treatments will help you smooth out any areas of stubborn fat, which can linger after weight loss.

Plan for the Day of Your Treatment

On the day of your treatment, plan to wear comfortable clothes and bring something to occupy yourself during the treatment. While the coolsculpting machine is working, you will be left alone in the treatment room for an hour or so. This is a great time to read a book, listen to that podcast you've been meaning to check out, or catch up on some emails. You should also plan to have someone drive you home as you may be too sore immediately following your appointment.

Plan for Coolsculpting Aftercare

Finally, it's important to know how to care for yourself while healing from your coolsculpting treatment. You will likely want to wear compression garments under your clothes because these can make you feel more comfortable and also help prevent swelling in the days or weeks after your treatment.

In addition, your doctor will likely ask you to massage the area you had treated a few times a day. This makes coolsculpting more effective by helping to break up and dissolve the fat cells that were targeted by the treatment. If you find that massaging the area is painful, simply take ibuprofen. Any pain should be minor and go away after a few days.

If coolscupting fat treatments seem like they could be the right solution for you, start by scheduling a consultation. Your medspa doctor or nurse will evaluate your body shape, listen to your desired outcomes, and tell you if you are a good candidate.
