With summer around the corner, now is the perfect time to consider CoolSculpting treatments to rid yourself of fat that diet and exercise don’t seem to touch. Not sure about the cost or effectiveness of CoolSculpting? Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics is here to answer any questions you may have.
The Science Behind CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is the only FDA-approved procedure for controlled cooling to target and remove unwanted fat that diet and exercise can’t reduce. Scientists from Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital developed CoolSculpting through a process called Cryolipolysis®, which targets fat cells to trigger their natural death. How? Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues, which means precise cooling delivered to the stubborn fat cells can crystalize those cells while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. It’s non-surgical, non-invasive, and has no downtime. The science behind CoolSculpting is sound, and there are more than 60 scientific and clinical journal papers and technical reports published. It is entirely safe, with automatic shut-off if temperatures do not remain ideal with the equipment’s sensors during the treatment process.
With each treatment, CoolSculpting decreases the number of fat cells by 20-25%. It takes time for your body to metabolize the dead cells from your system—about 4 weeks—so results aren’t immediately visible. The best part is once the fat cells are dead and metabolized, they’re gone for good. Get rid of that muffin top, or the bulge around the band of your bra with CoolSculpting, so you can have the shape and silhouette you’ve always wanted.

How Good are the Results?
CoolSculpting is not intended for major weight loss. In fact, the number on the scale may not go down much if at all. The true test of success is in the number of inches you lose, and how your clothes fit. 8 weeks after your first session, the fat loss reaches its peak, and by 12 weeks, your skin will smooth out and your overall appearance will be more toned. If you’re trying to improve your shape for a special event, such as a wedding or vacation, the ideal time to schedule your sessions in advance is 3 to 6 months.
Even better, CoolSculpting isn’t just a one-and-done treatment. If you’re not happy with the results after the initial treatment, or it didn’t quite remove the amount of fat you hoped, a second, or even third treatment is possible. You can, however, have too much of a good thing, including CoolSculpting. There has to be fat in an area to remove, and it’s never wise to entirely blitz your fat layer. It won’t look natural, and some cushioning is necessary for comfort and protection.
What’s the Cost of CoolSculpting?
In the San Jose area, the price range for CoolSculpting is between $500 and $4,500, according to location-based reviews on RealSelf.com. The total cost depends on the number of treatments and the size and number of areas you’re treating. For more than one treatment or a larger area, you can expect a cost somewhere in the middle of that range.
