I'm Trying an Anti-inflammatory Diet for Acne - Will Diet Affect Zeltiq Effectiveness?

Healthy Plant Based Diet Great for Acne and Cool Sculpt

An anti-inflammatory diet usually means a plant based diet. If anything it will only improve the results of your Zeltiq Cool Sculpting treatment as you will have addtional weight loss. 

Unless increasing calories, type of diet should not affect the CoolSculpting's result

Certainly we have seen some patients who did not get improvement from their CoolSculpting because they increased their caloric consumption. Having a fat reduction techqnique such as Zeltiq does not mean you can exercise less or eat more! The type of diet you consume shouldn't change the result unless it's an unusual diet such as 100% carbohydrates or other unbalanced type.

Anti-inflammatory and Coolsculpting

Thank you for your question.

It has not been documented that a patient taking anti-inflammatories would have a different result with CoolSculpting.

Best Wishes!

Anti inflammatories post coolsculpting

There is a theoretical possibility that anti-inflammatory medications could reduce the inflammatory reaction that is both necessary and caused after Coolsculpting. The inflammatory process is responsible for clearing the necrotic adipocytes (fat cells).
