Many San Diego patients looking to get their fat frozen away ask about the role massage plays in getting the best Coolsculpting results.
At the completion of your Coolsculpting session, Dr. Hilinski or his staff will perform massage of the area just treated. It is thought that massaging the Coolsculpted area will help in breaking down the unwanted fatty tissue layer – thus helping to improve the final results of your treatment. Some offices will even recommend you continue to massage the areas on your own – going so far as to recommend use of vibrating device to help with what is thought to be lymphatic drainage. There are several reports available that seem to indicate that massaging in this manner after Coolsculpting can help improve your cosmetic result by 60% in some cases. Although there remains some controversy on this topic, that type of data is hard to ignore!
