Today’s experiment was At-home Cool-Sculpting. Two 30 minute sessions because I forgot to massage the areas treated during my 1st 30 minute session. I always forget until hat I planned on doing until the effects have worn off. Needless to say, while I hate being cold, knowing that I am potentially freezing some fat cells made the experience tolerable.
My first session at 6 am for my abs, love handles, back fat and inner-thighs went by quickly as I Googled companies that sold kits to freeze fat at home. The belts on line did not appear to cover the amount of area I’m working on so thankfully no impulse purchases made (Yippee! – says my bank account).
I used frozen vegetable bags and applied them first over Spanx on the areas I want to reduce and then, after getting slightly accustomed to the coldness, placing said frozen bags under the Spanx. It tall wasn’t that bad although I was in my bed, under s verbal blankets.
Afterwards, I got up and started my normal morning routine. Two hours later I remembered reading suggestions to massage the targeted areas to work the fat for elimination over the next few weeks. Since it was my “work-from-home” day, I figured another round from 3:30 to 4 wouldn’t hurt.
For my second session, I focused on my abs and obliques. The inner thighs were more sensitive than my stomach area which I don’t know if it’s a good or a bad thing. I kept the frozen veggies on for 45 minutes and then lightly massaged the areas because I didn’t want to lose the chilled effect by heating my stomach fat to my normal body temp too quickly.
I’d read previously that it takes a few weeks to start seeing results from actual Cool Sculpting, I didn’t have any additional expectations for today. But as I prepared for bed, I could feel my back fat!! This was a new feeling, besides hanging over my jeans and now I’m thoroughly interested on the outcome of this experiment.
I’ll keep you posted.
