CryoSkin 2.0

What is CRYOSLIMMING?
CryoSlimming begins with a heating treatment first and then reaches colder temperatures in which fat cells cannot survive and the process of apoptosis, cell death.  CryoSlimming uses thermoelectric cooling to perform cryolipolysis, freezing of the fat, which causes cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue without damage to the overlying skin. It is safe, painless and a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.  The purpose of the treatment is to lower the temperature of the fat cells enough to cause what is known as the phenomenon of apoptosis. This phenomenon is triggered when the temperature of the fat tissue is between 17 and 12 ° and causes these cells to die. These cells are then naturally passed through the body through the lymphatic system and urine.

What is CRYOTONING?
CryoToning involves less cold temperatures and therefore does not kill fat cells but stimulates collagen and skin elasticity.  CryoToning uses Thermotherapy which helps diminish the appearance of cellulite, fine lines and wrinkles. Thermotherapy helps to rejuvenate and smooth skin by accelerating biochemical reactions, stimulating the production of collagen and tightening muscles.

What areas can CRYOSKIN 2.0 Treat?
CryoSlimming can be used to treat the abdominals, arms, bra-line, love handles, inner or outer thigh, double-chin, and buttocks.  CryoToning can be used to treat the arms, abdominals, thighs, legs, face.

Who is a candidate for CRYOSKIN 2.0?
Anyone who is looking to lose weight or has stubborn areas of fat they are looking to spot reduce or remove.  CryoSlimming is ideal for someone who follows a healthy and active lifestyle but still has some excess fat that they would like to get rid of. It is not ideal for someone who is classified as “Obese” or with a BMI of 35 or higher.  CryoToning is for anyone with cellulite, fine lines and wrinkles or who wants to improve the overall appearance of their skin.

Who is not a candidate for CRYOSKIN 2.0?
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, patients with Raynaud’s syndrome, Cancer, Severe Diabetes and people who suffer from very poor circulation.

How long is the CRYOSKIN 2.0 Treatment?
The treatments lasts for 28 minutes and are performed manually through a massage technique. The session begins with 2 minutes of heat and then a decrease in temperature to -8 ‘C for the duration of the session. Many patients visit us during the lunch break or immediately before or after a workout and there is no down-time after the treatment!

Is the CRYOSKIN 2.0 treatment painful?
The treatment is painless, with some clients describing it as rather pleasant. This is due to the massage technique and the session beginning with skin warming descending into the gradual decrease of temperature.

How long before I see results from the CRYOSKIN 2.0 Treatment?
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.  CryoToning results are more immediate and may require several sessions for desired results.  CryoSlimming will take several weeks to months for the full results to be realized. Multiple sessions may be needed to achieve desired results.

How long do the results last?
Depending on the individual and their lifestyle and diet, the results last several months or several years. It is advisable to see how long treatments stay their best on you and engage in booster sessions as needed.

Is CRYOSKIN 2.0 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 the machine and temperature is displayed on the screen. The Cryoskin was launched 5 years ago and is used throughout France. It is currently the most successful non-invasive slimming treatment available in France, the beauty capital of the world.  It was introduced in the US, in New York City in November 2017.

How many CRYOSKIN 2.0 treatments are needed?
Though results can be seen immediately, 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 often can I have CRYOSKIN 2.0 treatments?
CryoSlimming treatments can be performed once every 2 weeks and CryoToning treatments can be performed every 7 days. There is a physiological reason for this: when apoptosis occurs and some fat cells die, waste is formed. The waste will be eliminated by natural routes (blood, lymphatic system, and the urine). Metabolism must therefore be allowed to evacuate this waste without overloading the system.

Why can I only have the CRYOSLIMMING treatment every 2 weeks?
The natural destruction of fat cells will cause cell waste. This waste is passed through the body naturally, first through the blood then the lymphatic system and then urine and this process on average takes 2 weeks.

What happens if I have a CRYOSLIMMING session before the 2 week gap?
The results may be compromised 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 results.

How many areas can I have treated at once?
It is recommended and advised to treat no more than 2 areas in a secession.

Why can I only have 2 areas done at the same time?
Again, to not overload the body’s elimination pathways. There is also strong internal cooling of the tissues and the treating of more zones at the same time could cause, in extreme cases, hypothermia and fatigue.

What if I want to treat my stomach, face, arms and legs, can I do them at the same time?
In our opinion and advice, NO.  In general, it is always advisable to practice treatment on the upper OR lower body in a session.  For example, we could treat the face and arms in one session and then stomach and legs in another session.

Do the legs count as 1 area or 2?
The legs would count as one area because you would divide the time between each leg (14 minutes on one leg, 14 minutes on the other).

Can an area be treated for a longer amount of time?
We may extend the time when we are working with someone who has a much larger body mass. Pre-programmed treatments were performed on average body surfaces so are effective across a variety of body types.

Are there any side effects with CRYOSKIN 2.0?
There are generally no side effects apart from increased urination over the 3 days following the treatment and a possible change in the appearance of your urine color. In some cases there were localized redness and itching that disappeared after a few hours and in rare cases there was local pain that did not exceed 2 to 3 hours.

What can I do to maximize CRYOSKIN 2.0 results?
We advise our patients to implement a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and exercise.   Results can be optimized for maximum fat mobilization and loss by adding Whole Body Vibration services and keeping hydrated drinking plenty of good quality still water.  Ask us about nutritional counseling to help you with your new lifestyle.

What is the difference between CRYOSKIN 2.0 and other Cryotherapy treatments?
There are other manual cryotherapy machines but tests and experience have shown that no other machine is currently capable of such dramatic results as the Cryoskin 2.0. These results are due to the fact that the device does not only produce cold but also heat. The exchange within these temperatures has a dramatic effect on the body’s tissues causing them to drop to 12 ° when fat tissues reach this temperature they die and are passed through the lymphatic system.
