HOW IT WORKS

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

HOW IT WORKS?: 

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 reaches a certain temperature and results in a self-programming of the death of these cells.

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.

SIDE-EFFECTS:

There are few. Sometimes localized redness that disappears after a few hours. Sometimes some localized soreness that rarely exceeds 2 to 3 hours. There may also be some itching without consequences and often due to the reactions of certain cosmetic products used by clients. Hence we ask that you not use anything (i.e. makeup, strong lotions) before coming to do the treatment because some products can crystallize to the cold and cause discomfort.

IS IT CERTIFIED?

Cryoskin has been CE certified (European FDA). Cryoskin has not yet been FDA cleared but it is in the works.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

One Slimming treatment is between 24 – 36 minutes. One Toning treatment is 20-30 minutes. The amount of time for each session depends upon the treatment area.

HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?

For the Slimming, the first results are generally visible from the first session and often very encouraging. However, it should be noted that the best results appear from 2 to 3 weeks after the start of treatment and extend for several months after the end of treatment. For the Facial, results are visible right away. For the Body Toning, results are generally visible subtly from the first session and are at their best about 3-5 days after.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED FOR RESULTS?

For the Slimming, the first results are generally visible from the first session and often very encouraging. However, it should be noted that the best results appear from 2 to 3 weeks after the start of treatment and extend for several months after the end of treatment. For the Facial, results are visible right away. For the Body Toning, results are generally visible subtly from the first session and are at their best about 3-5 days after.


HOW OFTEN CAN I DO A TREATMENT?

The usual frequency is 1 treatment every 15 days (for slimming treatments). There is a physiological reason for this: when apoptosis occurs and some fat cells die, waste is formed. This will be eliminated by natural routes (blood, lymphatic system, and then urine). Metabolism must therefore be allowed to evacuate this waste without overloading the circuits. Toning treatments can be performed once every week (7-8 days).

CAN I DO A FACIAL TREATMENT IF I HAVE GOTTEN BOTOX OR FILLERS?:

You may receive a Cryoskin Facial 2-3 months after these injections. A doctor who works for Allegan (owner of Botox / Fillers) said 1 month should be safe. However, the manufacturer of Cryoskin recommends abstaining from the facial for 3 months after these injections just to be safe.

CAN I WORKOUT BEFORE/AFTER ANY TREATMENT?:

Yes, you can for Toning treatments. However, it is NOT recommended that you do so for Slimming treatments because it will be harder to cool the body down and therefore, get the most effective results.

WARNING:

Do NOT participate in Cryoskin if you have: Raynaud’s syndrome, allergy to cold, Cancer, Kidney or Liver Disease.

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should NOT participate in any Slimming or Body Toning treatments, but CAN do the Cryoskin Facial.

Persons with open sores, skin conditions, or acne shouldn’t receive Cryoskin treatment in that area until fully healed.

Persons with Diabetes may participate with some modifications. Persons with Severe Diabetes should consult a doctor.
