What is Cryoskin?
Cryoskin was developed in France. The term CryoSkin is an umbrella term for the elimination of fat cells through the concentrated application of cold and heat, a process known as apoptosis or cell death. The treatment is non-invasive, painless, and uses a wand-like instrument to glide over target problem areas. Cryoskin actually offers three different treatments CryoSlimming, CryoToning, and CryoSkin facials. All three treatments use essentially the same technology, the only difference is the programmed cool settings.
CryoSlimming focuses on one specific area of the body at a time. The stomach, thighs, arms, and the back are the most popular areas are respond with the best results. In a standard CryoSlimming procedure, heat at 40ºC is applied to the problem site for 2 minutes, followed by 12 minutes of cold at temperatures between 4 C and -4C (even -8C in some sessions) and the treatment typically lasts around 28 minutes. The number of treatments varies, with three to five treatments per area yielding the best results as an average. The slimming treatments are spaced out at two week intervals. This is the recommended interval because of the time it takes for fat cells to pass through the lymphatic system, where they eventually get flushed out of the body through the urine. This process is also known as cryolipolysis.
CryoToning is the second form of treatment offered by CryoSkin. It works by chilling subcutaneous fat, or the layer of fat just below the skin. As the fat is cooled, blood vessels expand (aka vasodilation) and collagen production is stimulated, breaking down the fibers that cause cellulite dimpling. More effective for tightening loose skin and eliminating the appearance of cellulite, CryoToning also helps reduce signs of aging. The procedure typically lasts 20 minutes, and three to five treatments are recommended for best results. However, unlike CryoSlimming, multiple areas can be targeted in a single session. We often recommend packages of alternated CryoSlimming one week, then CryoToning the next and so on throughout the larger packages to get the benefits of reduction and toning results faster.
CryoSkin facial can be thought of as a kind of non-surgical facelift. Specifically designed to tighten the face, neck, and chin, the treatment does so by stimulating collagen production. Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, skin texture is improved, and pore-size and skin elasticity are increased. There is no downtime after treatment, which is a desired perk! Three to five treatments are recommended for best results. Maintanence is required at set incremements, based on age, skin condition, etc, and will be suggested after the completion of your initial sessions.
All three treatments are safe for everyone except those with severe Raynaud’s Syndrome, those who suffer from poor circulation, those with severe diabetes, those with cancer, and pregnant women. Everyone must have a in house consultation and review the contraindications. CryoSkin is not a weight loss solution. It is best suited for those in good shape who wish to subtly slim, tone, and eliminate problem areas on their bodies. It isn’t magic. It requires commitment and it does not replace replace diet and exercise. You do your best and let CryoSkin do the rest.
