Why Winter Is the Best Time to Start Body Sculpting Treatments

You might not be ready to think about bikinis and the beach, but it’s not too early to think about summer. Winter is the best time to start body sculpting treatments. Read on to find out why.

Your beach body starts … now! 

Winter is the best time to start your body sculpting treatments here at RefineU Med Spa. Our team of experts offers a variety of nonsurgical body sculpting treatments, including CoolSculpting®, Morpheus8, CoolTone®, Sculptra® butt lift, and Kybella® injections. 

All body contouring treatments aim to reshape different parts of your body, but they each target the treatment areas in different ways. CoolSculpting, for example, uses cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells, while CoolTone relies on magnetic muscle stimulation to tone your muscles.

Regardless of which body sculpting treatment interests you, now is your time to take action. Read on to learn why winter is the ideal time to start body sculpting.

1. You can enjoy a comfy recovery

After your nonsurgical body sculpting treatment, you may experience mild discomfort, bruising, or swelling 一 all are normal. These side effects are usually temporary and mild, but you want to stay comfortable as you heal. What better way than by cozying up in a warm blanket?

2. You can easily hide treatment areas

The side effects from nonsurgical body contouring are always far milder than from surgical body contouring, but you might not want to put those side effects on display.

Kybella, for instance, can do wonders for your double chin, but you may have post-injection swelling. Your winter wardrobe can help. Thanks to bulky scarves and thick sweaters, you can discreetly undergo procedures without feeling self-conscious about treatment effects. 

3. You have fewer outdoor commitments

Some body sculpting treatments, such as Morpheus8, require avoiding UV exposure after treatment. During the summer, that can be hard between pool parties and afternoons spent watching baseball games. In the winter, it’s much easier to avoid excess UV exposure. 

4. You get optimal results by summer

Nonsurgical body sculpting treatments can take a few weeks (or even months) to reveal their full effects.

For instance, CoolSculpting works by freezing your fat cells. The cold damages the cells, and your body’s lymphatic system flushes them away. It can take four months to lose up to 28% of unwanted body fat

In other words, if you start now, you can be beach-ready by summer!

5. You’re motivated to keep your New Year’s resolutions

Winter is often seen as a time of rest and reflection before the busyness of spring. Starting body sculpting treatments now sets the tone for a year of self-improvement and confidence.
