Diet has an important role to play in many skin disorders.
In general, there is a lot of talk about diet, hygiene and sunlight exposure, and how this relates to acne. Surprisingly little well studied evidence exists. This means that we, as doctors, can’t be firm about telling our patients exactly what to do about acne when it comes to diet, face-washing, and sunlight.
The best thing is to give individualized advice.
-From a practical point of view, it is useful to keep a diet journal, and so *you* can decide how this affects your skin.
-Use sunscreen! We know sun causes damage.
-Face-washing may help, and there are products that can be applied to skin that will assist with mild acne

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.
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).
