Unless you’re a model or a celebrity, being photographed from every angle isn’t a regular occurrence. For a bride-to-be, mother-of-the-bride or bridal squad member, the thought of being the focus of a photographer’s lens for one entire day (or multiple days if the wedding features more than one event) can be a daunting prospect. After all, a wedding is often the most photographed day of the happy couple’s life.

Many brides (and their bridal party participants) suffer from these types of pre-wedding, camera-shy nerves and this shyness inevitably leads to thoughts about how they would like to appear in their wedding album. A pre-wedding glow-up to feel and look their best is often on the cards and might include a switch up to a healthier diet, a regular exercise routine and a visage-prepping plan for glowy wedding day skin.

But sometimes, despite even the most rigorous glow-up plan, there are other factors at play that may mean a bride or her bridal party (if they too are on the wedding day glow-up train) can’t quite achieve what they were hoping for pre-wedding.  Even with a healthy lifestyle, there are areas of the body with stubborn pockets of fat that are very difficult to reduce  without some kind of a procedure.

This is where CoolSculpting comes in. CoolSculpting is the world’s number one in-clinic, non-invasive body contouring procedure that uses a process developed by Harvard scientists called cryolipolysis. The treatment selectively freezes fat cells underneath the skin causing these superficial fat cells to be damaged and then subsequently die.* Over the course of about 12 weeks, the dead fat cells are naturally eliminated by the body.*

For a bride-to-be, CoolSculpting may be the extra assistance they’re looking for during their pre-wedding glow-up—without having to resort to invasive surgery—to target those unwanted bulges in specific areas of the body.

Areas that can be treated with CoolSculpting, amongst others, include the abdomen, under the chin area, upper arms, back, bra area, inner and outer thighs, around the knees and even under the buttocks. The process takes between 35 and 75 minutes, depending on the area of the body that is being treated. As it’s not a surgical procedure, rather a “lunch-time procedure”, often patients return to their normal day-to-day activities after their CoolSculpting treatment. This will vary by person and depend on the area treated.

For anyone looking for a magic weight-loss solution, this is not it. CoolSculpting is a body contouring procedure that may assist in removing superficial fat cells in targeted areas of your body that are stubbornly refusing to get with the glow-up programme. It’s not an instant fix either, results can be seen as early as 6 weeks with final results around 12 weeks after treatment, so allow some time as part of your glow-up plan. As with any medical procedure there can be side effects so you should always discuss any potential treatments with a healthcare professional.

While CoolSculpting is not for everybody, it could be an option to consider as part of your bridal glow-up if you’re interested in a non-invasive, tried-and-tested (over eight million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide† according to the company) procedure that may help create a more sculpted body for your big day.
