Cryoskin Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe?
The device is very safe. 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 necessary for the correct application of the treatment in a minimum amount 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 of a self-programming of the death of these cells.
What are the benefits?
The major benefit sought is a decrease in fat mass. It must not be forgotten that the apparatus is not only capable of emitting cold, but also heat and causing the two to alternate, thus causing "thermal shock". This method of thermal shock is particularly restorative for tissues by a significant increase of local microcirculation and collagen.
How does it feel?
The feeling is rather pleasant at 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.
Who shouldn't do it?
How often can I do a CryoSlimming™ or CryoToning™ Treatment?
How often can I do a CryoFacial Treatment?
Can I work out before or after?
What do I need to bring?
Nothing. If anything, the best possible diet and lifestyle to accompany the treatments (drink plenty of water in particular).
Please pay attention to the important information in preparation for your CRYOSLIMMING™ appointment for maximum results:
How does the treatment work?
The treatment works by triggering the phenomenon of apoptosis of the fat cells. This is achieved without risk to the other tissues (in particular muscular tissue) by the fact that the intracellular electrolytes of the fat cell are the first to crystallize in the cold before all the others. This crystallization is information brought to the cell to program self-destruction. One could say that cryotherapy is a homeopathic treatment specific to the fat cell.
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 to look younger?
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 combat skin aging.
What's the difference between this and other Cryo treatments?
There are other manual cryotherapy machines, but no other machine is currently capable of an inertia as strong as the Cryoskin. This inertia is due to the fact that the device does not only produce cold. It works by heat exchange with the body and the ability to descend very strongly and very quickly the temperature of the tissues by absorption of calories, accumulation of calories and evacuation by a system equipped with a ventilated hydraulic radiator.
Why can I only have a CryoSlimming™ treatment every 2 weeks?
The phenomenon of apoptosis is a natural phenomenon. A programmed natural death of the fat cell. This is a self-destruction specifically for fat cells, whose ingredients are going to be removed slowly and naturally from the body at the rate of metabolism.
What happens if I come back before the 2 weeks?
Aided by complementary drainage methods, the treatments can eventually be reduced to 10 or 12 days. Otherwise, the results may be thwarted by the natural cycle of waste disposal and thus increase the risk of clogging the pathways. This does not represent a significant risk but would compromise the harmony of the results.
Why can I only have 2 areas treated at one time?
This is necessary as to not overload the circuits. There is a strong internal cooling of the tissues and the treating of more zones at the same time could cause in extreme cases hypothermia, but in many cases a phenomenon of great fatigue.
Do legs count as 1 area or 2?
The legs would count as one area because you would divide the time between each leg (14 mins on one leg, 14 mins on the other).
Are there any risks?
The risks concern only people with contraindications mentioned and remain minor and temporary.
Is there a certain person who is best suited for this treatment?
The treatment is not for clients requiring weight loss but rather for the vast majority of those who have unsightly cellulite or fatty areas (often due to poor diet, poor lifestyle or a static workplace, for example). The treatment is a therapy to re-harmonize the body's curves and not a slimming cure.
How quickly will I see results?
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 15 days to 3 weeks after the start of treatment and extend for several months after the end of treatment.
How long do those results last?
Depending on the individual and depending also on their lifestyle and diet, the results last several months or several years. It is advisable to practice 2 or 3 sessions 6 months after the end of treatment to maintain results.
Can I do anything that enhances the treatment?
Implementing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a good diet!
What is unique about the facial treatment using Cryoskin?
Why is this effective for cellulite?
The treatment causes vasodilation in the treated area. This increases blood flow which results in increased collagen production. Collagen helps to break down cellulite but, cellulite will return if there are no changes in diet and exercise.
How should you treat someone who is overweight AND has cellulite?
You should do slimming one week, toning the next week and repeat - as this will reduce fat and also stimulate collagen production which breaks down fat. Ideally, before and after the slimming treatments, customers need to drink 64 ounces of water.
How effective is the Cryoskin Facial/Face Lift?
The cold creates vasodilation in the treated area. This increases the production of collagen which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment also closes the pores and increases the elasticity of the skin which gives you the “Cryoskin glow”. However, the aging process and gravity continue, unfortunately, so the effect is not permanent. The length of results vary from person-to-person, but we recommend maintenance sessions every 6 months at minimum.
How many layers or mm deep of the skin does this treat?
4cm (about 1.5 inches) - but you need 14 minutes to get there.
Does this target subcutaneous or Fibrotic fat?
Subcutaneous is the easiest to reach so it reaches this layer easily. Fibrotic is more difficult to reach but the Cryoskin gel conveys the cold very well by removing the bubbles of air on the skin to help conduct the cold, and this allows you to reach this layer.
Is it okay to treat people who have an open wound?
No. The reason for this is not to pass bodily fluid onto the wand.
Is it okay to treat people after wax/laser hair removal?
It’s best to wait 1 week after these treatments to make sure the treated areas are fully healed.
What about those with Botox/Fillers?
We DO NOT recommend getting facial treatments if a client has had Botox injections within the past 30 days, or Fillers within the past 90 days.
