Will taking a daily zinc supplement have an effect on Coolsculpting results?

I had Coolsculpting done under the chin two weeks ago. I’ve just recently started taking zinc (30mg daily) in efforts to clear my skin, and I have read that it has anti-inflammatory properties, I’m wondering if this will hinder or have an effect on my results? Are there supplements that should be avoided in order to maximize results?

The non-invasive fat-freezing treatment utilises a process as cryolipolysis: the fat cells in your body are known to freeze at a different temperature to other, healthy cells. The body’s natural processes then break down and eliminate the fat cells over the next few weeks and months. As your fat cells have already sustained the cold injury, they will undergo cryolipolysis no matter what you do now; zinc supplements are highly unlikely to decrease the effect.
