FAQ's: Frequently Asked Questions
Is it Safe?
Yes. The device is very safe. It is a non-invasive treatment of adipose tissue to induce cryolipolysis – the breaking down of fat cells – to reduce body fat without damage to other tissues. It consists of a special developed technique where warm and cold are used and applied directly to the client’s skin. The cooling system is controlled by an electronic temperature sensor located in the processing head
of the device and the temperature is controlled in real time by a curve and figures displayed in real time on the screen. In the event of a malfunction, the device alerts the operator by sounding a tone and displaying an error message.
How does it work?
The machine itself functions by a Peltier effect (thermoelectric cooling) regulated by a hydraulic system which ensures a very high inertia which is absolutely necessary for the correct application of the treatment in a minimum of time. These characteristics, which are very difficult to obtain, make it possible to enact a very rapid cooling of the fat tissues while avoiding the risk of lesions of the skin tissue due to an application that is too long. The principle of the treatment is to lower the temperature of the fat cells enough to cause what is called the phenomenon of apoptosis. This phenomenon is triggered when the temperature of the fat tissues is between 17 and 12 ° and consists in a self-programming of the death of these cells.
What are the benefits of Cryo T-Shock?
The major benefit sought is a large decrease in fat mass which was visualized by CT scans and measured between 15 and 40% according to the subjects tested. On the other hand, it must not be forgotten that the apparatus is not only capable of emitting cold but also of heat and of causing the two to alternate, thus causing "thermal shock". This method of thermal shock is medically recognized to be particularly restorative for tissues by significant increase of local microcirculation and collagen. Here is a list of benefits:
- Body slimming and contouring
- Tightens and tones skin
- Reduces the appearance of cellulite
- Stimulates collagen and elastin
- Relaxes muscles
- Speeds up cellular activities and repair
- Reduces pain and inflammation
- Improves blood circulation
How does it feel?
The feeling is rather pleasant thanks to the start of the treatment which is generally done with a short period of skin warming and a gradual but rapid decrease of the temperature. At the end of the treatment, the thermal shock appears very quickly, which gives a feeling of warmth and lightness at the same time. The 20-30 minute treatments are executed manually through a slow massage over the selected area of the body. It is a non-invasive and painless treatment that feels like a light massage.
Who shouldn't do it?
There are few contraindications to treatment. But we must still be vigilant to some pathologies:
- Raynaud's syndrome
- Allergy to cold
- Pregnant woman
- Strong diabetes
Were and How often can I do it?
CyroSlimming is best for your stomach, love handles, under arms, bra-line, glutes, double chin and inner or outer thighs. CyroSlimming treatments can be performed once every two weeks and CryoToning treatments can be performed once per week. There is a physiological reason for the wait period:
Use CyroToning for your face, arms, legs, and stomach. CryoSlimming causes apoptosis and when this occurs and fat cells die wasted is formed. This will be eliminated through the blood and lymphatic system. The wasted will eventually be eliminated through the kidneys and waiting every two weeks ensures that the lymphatic system and kidneys are not overloaded. Your results may be comprised by the natural waste cycle and risk of clogging of the pathways if the treatment is done less than every 14 days. This does not represent a significant risk but could compromise the results.
Can I work out before/after?
How does the treatment work?
Cryo T-Shock uses the technology of Peltier cells by safely and quickly generating heat followed by transdermal cold. The 20-minute session starts with a warming phase followed by sudden cooling. Temperatures are pleasant and non-painful. Skin and fatty tissue are subjected to triple thermal shock (heat-cold-heat) which optimizes the results. The heat has an effect on triglycerides by making them unstable and therefore attacks the contents. Adipose cells or adipocytes (fat cells) are particularly sensitive to heat and cold and this very important variation in temperature allows for a more efficient and faster elimination of adipocytes by modifying their crystallization. The synergy of the thermal shock leads the destruction of fat cells. The adipocytes cannot survive and some adipocytes are even eliminated directly during the session. The rest will be eliminated gradually over a few days or weeks. This technique leads to a reduction of fat mass in a targeted area and is not a weight loss solution. holding the deposits together. Repeated remedies will slowly take away upper layers of fat. The cells which have been destroyed are pulled into the bloodstream and are subsequently naturally disposed through the lymphatic system. Cryo T Shock is the ultimate anti-aging treatment by eliminating unwanted fat cells, reducing cellulite and toning and tightening the skin.
How is it getting rid of my cellulite?
The answer was given above. It should be remembered that it may be important to add drainage treatment once or twice a week between sessions.
Do I lose weight with this treatment?
It is very common that there is a loss of weight during the treatment. This is due both to the loss of fat mass but also to the drainage techniques (exercise, etc) and the diet and lifestyle required.
How is it helping me look younger?
As previously seen, the Cryoskin machine is capable of causing thermal shock due to its ability to alternate rapidly and automatically between periods of skin warming (up to 40°) and cooling (up to -8°). This phenomenon causes a very strong increase in the local metabolism and an acceleration of the microcirculation which are both responsible for the production of collagen. The collagen thus brings elasticity and toning to the skin and makes it possible to visibly and durably combat skin aging.
Why can I only have a treatment every 2 weeks?
The phenomenon of apoptosis is a natural phenomenon. A programmed natural death of the fat cell. The latter is not destroyed by a phenomenon of cavitation which would make it explode and create cell waste which would be very difficult, or impossible to eliminate. This is a self-destruction specifically for fat cells, whose ingredients are going to be removed slowly and naturallyfrom the body at the rate of metabolism.
When will I see results and how long do they last?
CryoSlimming may require 5-10 sessions over several months to see the best results. CryoToning results are more immediate and also may require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results. Results typically last several months to several years depending on the individual and his or her lifestyle. It is advised to continue 2 to 3 sessions once every 6 months to maintain your results.
Are there any side effects?
There are generally no side effects apart from an increased urination over several days following the treatment. In very few cases, there was localized redness that disappeared after a few hours and in rare cases, there was local pain that did not exceed 2 to 3 hours. There may also be some itching without consequences and often due to the reaction of certain cosmetic procedures used by clients; to avoid the chances of this do not use anything before coming in for this treatment. There was some experience of delayed onset muscle soreness from treatments on the stomach due to unintentionally engaging the abdominals, which disappeared later that same day. Anyone with the following conditions should not receive Cryo T-Shock treatment: very poor circulation, severe kidney disease or dialysis, varicose veins, cancer, chemotherapy, severe Diabetes, or pregnancy. Botox and fillers should not be used two and four weeks respectively in advance of facial treatments.
