The machine is manufactured by a company which makes over 40 different medical devices and has been doing so for the last 70 years very successfully. It uses what is called the “Peltier Effect” to precisely control the temperature of the Wand (how the cold/heat is applied to the body). This method is used to destroy fat cells by freezing within the temperature range of +5 to -5 ˚C. The cold treatment causes apoptosis or cell death of subcutaneous fat tissues.
This also 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.
The treatments are very safe and non-invasive. Many clients visit us during the lunch break or immediately before or after a workout. There is no down-time after the treatment.
In what cases should Cryoskin or Toning NOT be done?
What are the side effects?
There are few. Sometimes localized redness that disappears after a few hours. Occasionally some local pain that rarely exceeds 2 to 3 hours. There may also be some itching due to the reactions of certain cosmetic products. That being said, it is advised that you don't use lotions or other cosmetic products before coming to do the treatment.
Results may be noticed immediately, but typically results will set in over the days following treatment. It is recommended to treat specific areas between 3 - 6 times for best results. Afterwards, the treatments can last for years, but it is recommended to schedule 1-2 treatments every 6 months while maintaining a healthy diet and exercise.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The success of a treatment varies from person to person. Those clients who are already living a healthy lifestyle, have reported to have better results at keeping the fat off. However, the fat remaining fat cells can still grow IF you are not working to keep from gaining weight.
Research has shown a 38% fat reduction in treated areas. These results were seen over the course of 10 weeks after treating 100 individuals between 3-6 times each.
It is recommended to treat specific areas between 3 - 6 times for best results. Afterwards, the treatments can last for years, but it is recommended to schedule 1-2 treatments every 6 months while maintaining healthy eating habits and exercise.
Clients electing to do CryoSlimming can do treatments every 14 days. This allows for the dead fat cells to cycle through the lymphatic system. Clients electing to do CryoToning can do treatments everyday, but we typically recommend once per week.
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.
A survey of the machine's manufacturer found that:
People who have cellulite, trouble areas or fatty pockets they'd like to minimize but have struggled with, even with diet and exercise. Optimal is >35 BMI who have healthy eating habits and exercise regularly.
By implementing a healthy lifestyle and a good diet, but also by the addition of a powerful drainage treatment. Example: lots of water, walking, exercise, compression. Especially 72+ hours after a slimming session.
It causes vasoconstriction then vasodilation in the blood vessels. This increases blood flow which results in increased Collagen and Elastin production. Collagen helps to break down Cellulite.
It is recommended to wait 3 months after having Botox or other injectables. Please consult your physician with any questions.
It is best to wait at least one week after hair removal.
There is no active ingredient in the gel used so shouldn't cause any allergic reaction.
