Cryoskin cryotherapy is a non-invasive, body contouring treatment from Paris that is used for slimming, cellulite reduction, and toning. CryoSlimming uses the science of cryolipolysis (cell death) through the concentrated application of heat and cold to destroy fat cells. CryoToning helps improve microcirculation and speed up metabolism, which results in higher collagen production. This helps reduce cellulite and improve fine lines and wrinkles.
The treatment lasts for 20 (CryoToning) to 30 (CryoSlimming) minutes and is done with the application of the Cryoskin wand in a massaging technique.
The CryoSlimming technique begins with heat and then a sharp decrease in temperature to -10 degrees to cause fat cell death (cryolipolysis). These cells will be passed out through the lymphatic system.
The CryoToning treatment works by cooling subcutaneous fat areas (fat directly underneath the skin) of the legs, arms, face, etc. which creates vasodilation or expansion of the blood vessels. This stimulates collagen production which break down the fibers that create dimpling.. Clients may return to normal activity immediately after. For best results, no sugar should be consumed 2 hours before and after the CryoSlimming treatment. Hot Yoga right before or after both treatments is also discouraged.
Q: What are the benefits?
A: The major benefit sought is a large decrease in fat mass, measured between 15% and 40% with an average of 38% fat loss on the subjects tested.
Q: How often can it be done?
A: Slimming can be done every 15 days, so as to allow for the lymphatic system to fully cycle out cellular waste from prior sessions. Toning can be done once a day. Doing sessions outside of these guidelines would overload the natural processes in the body, producing a less desirable result.
Q: What to bring beforehand?
A: Nothing is needed. For slimming in particular, it is best to avoid sugars and carbohydrates 2 hours before and after. Facials should not be completed on clients who have had injectables (Botox/Fillers). Clients should wait for 1 month after Botox or 3 months after she/he had fillers.
Q: Is there weight loss results with this session?
A: The slimming session produces weight loss, through the destruction of fat cells and additionally the drainage (via the lymphatic system) experienced following the session.
Q: Can multiple areas be done at once?
A: You can do one slimming session at a time, in conjunction with one or more toning sessions (within reason). It is advised that upper body and lower body are treated in separate visits.
Q: Side effects?
A: Localized redness and discomfort lasting around 2-3 hours is common. It is advised that clients do not wear any products on their skin, as they may crystallize during the session. Some people may feel numbness lasting up to 3 days after the session.
Q: Ideal candidate?
A: The ideal candidate for Cryoskin 2.0 would be someone who is under 35 BMI. Maximum treatable area is half area of A4 on either side. The sessions are most effective on smaller problem areas of fat and cellulite that are stubborn against diet/exercise.
Q: How long do results last?
