CRYOSKIN FAQs

What is CRYOSKIN?

Cryoskin is the latest technology from Paris for fat reduction and skin toning. The machine offers 3 procedures: CryoSlimming (fat freezing) destroys fat cells, CryoToning tightens and smooths the skin of any body part, CryoFacial tightens and rejuvenates the skin of the face.

CRYOSLIMMING

What is CryoSlimming (fat freezing)?

CryoSlimming is the use of low temperatures to eliminate the fat cells located under the skin. It is one of the most efficient non-invasive fat reduction procedures on the market. The low temperatures cause the fat cells to die naturally (apoptosis). The dead fat cells are then disposed of via the lymphatic system and normal body processes within 2 weeks.

How does a CryoSlimming (fat freezing) procedure work?

The practitioner gradually applies low temperatures to the procedure area. One session lasts from 28 to 44 minutes depending on the body area. Limbs and other body areas are treated symmetrically during the same session.

How does it feel?

The temperature decreases gradually for better comfort. When the temperature reaches the lowest levels, the concerned area is slightly numbed by the cold. Therefore, clients usually say they do not really realize that the temperature is that cold. At the end of the session, a short warm phase gives a feeling of warmth and lightness at the same time.

Is it safe?

CryoSlimming procedures are natural as we only use heat and cold. Over 70 scientific and clinical papers have been published by renowned doctors and researchers which demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of fat freezing procedures when applied correctly. Furthermore, Cryoskin is the safest and most efficient fat freezing device on the market. Cryoskin uses no suction cups. There is no risk of damage to the skin.

How efficient is the procedure?

With Cryoskin you can lose up to 1 inch / 2.5 cm per session. We recommend 5 to 10 sessions to complete one body area depending on the size of the area. Please note that results may vary from one person to another.

How often can I undergo a session?

After the session, it will take circa 15 days for the lymphatic system to eliminate the dead fat cells waste. It is thus recommended to wait 2 weeks between two CryoSlimming sessions to allow the kidneys to process the waste.

When will I see the result?

There is an immediate inch/cm loss at the end of the CryoSlimming session, but the final result will be achieved 15 days later when the elimination of waste will be complete.

Can I focus on any part of the body?

Cryoskin can be used on any part of the body, but the breast. It is not possible to do a CryoSlimming on the face neither, but it is possible to do the double chin and the fat under the jaws.

Is it possible to focus on different areas at the same time?

When CryoSlimming is operated manually with the handpiece it is possible to work on one area at the time. When procedure is operated handsfree with the cryopads it is possible to work on 2 areas at the same time.

Is the result permanent?

CryoSlimming literally destroys the fat cells, whereas some other methods like ultrasounds or rolling massage empty them. With a CryoSlimming, once the fat cells are gone, they will never return, although a healthy diet and exercise regime are necessary after to prevent the remaining fat cells from enlarging.

Can anybody undergo a session?

CryoSlimming is natural as we only use hot and cold. Thus, there are very few contraindications, the main ones being pregnancy, cancer, and allergy to cold. A consent form mentioning all contraindications will be presented to all clients by their practitioner during the assessment interview. It is worth mentioning that CryoSlimming procedures can be performed on any man or woman over 18 (or over 16 with parental consent). Please note that CryoSlimming is a technique to reduce localized body fat and lose inches/cm, it is not a solution for losing weight. However, CryoSlimming can be complementary to a diet plan.

What are the side effects?

There are few: sometimes localized redness will appear, but this disappears after a few hours. Sometimes some local discomfort that rarely exceeds 2 to 3 hours. There may also be some temporary itching without consequences.

What do I need to bring?

Nothing. Please wear comfortable clothing (if having a body procedure). Just stick to the best possible diet and lifestyle to accompany the procedures. For best results, do not eat sugar 2 hours before and after the session, as sugar will give energy to the fat cells and can reduce the efficiency of the procedure. This applies to all kinds of sugar (pasta, rice, bread, cereals...) and of course fast sugar and drinks with sugar.

What happens after the session?

CryoSlimming is very convenient. There is no downtime, you are ready to go once a session is finished. Just make sure you drink a lot of water just after and during the 15 days after to maximize the drainage of the waste.

CRYOTONING AND CRYOFACIAL

What are CryoToning and CryoFacial?

CryoToning and CryoFacial work in the same way, using cold temperatures around 0°C to rejuvenate and tighten the skin. The pumping effect of the blood system increases the oxygen and nutrient supply to the cells, stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin. There is also a draining effect. It is possible to treat any part of the body (CryoToning) or the face (CryoFacial).

How does a CryoToning or CryoFacial work?

The practitioner will massage the concerned area using the handpiece, applying low temperatures. CryoToning sessions take between 20 and 30 minutes depending on the body area; CryoFacial takes 20 minutes. The session consists of 2 phases of 10 to 20 minutes each allowing the practitioner to work on any concerned area symmetrically.

How does it feel?

The procedure is refreshing and pleasant. The client can feel the cold temperatures during the session, but as the temperature is not very low, the cold sensation is very light.

Is it safe?

CryoToning and CryoFacial procedures are natural as they only use cold. It is the modern ice bath.

How efficient are the procedures?

CryoToning: the pumping effect operated by the handpiece on the blood system opens the blood vessels, increasing oxygen and nutrient supply to the cells, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, with an additional draining effect. The skin appears instantly smoother and firmer. CryoToning procedures can be performed on any part of the body (cleavage, arms, breast, post baby belly, etc.) for a tightening effect on the skin.

CryoFacial: the increase in nutrient and oxygen supply boosts collagen and elastin production, improving the elasticity of the skin. Skin is noticeably tighter, and wrinkles visibly reduced in just one twenty-minute session. The skin pores retract with the cold for a glowing effect. The face appears fresher and younger. CryoFacial simultaneously provides a lymphatic drainage that improves the puffiness and illuminates the face. The cold is also anti-inflammatory, and procedures have a positive impact on spots and redness.

How often can I undergo a session?

It is possible to do a CryoToning every week on the same area, but you can do multiple areas on the same day or on different days during the same week. It is possible to do a CryoFacial every week. It is also possible to combine CryoToning or CryoFacial with CryoSlimming on the same day (but not on the same body zone), for example you can do a CryoSlimming abdomen, followed by a CryoFacial or a CryoToning Cellulite.

When will I see the result?

Results are visible just after the first session.

Is the result permanent?

CryoToning and CryoFacial effects are not permanent as the skin ages inexorably. To maximize the results, one session every week for 5 weeks is recommended (for the same area), and then 1 session per month for maintenance. This plan will have a cumulative effect and help to maintain a higher production of collagen and elastin.

Can anybody undergo a session?

CryoToning and CryoFacial are natural as they only use cold. Thus, there are very few contraindications, the main ones being cancer, allergy to cold, breast implants (only for CryoToning targeting the breasts firmness), Botox/hyaluronic fillers (only for CryoFacial and only if injected less than 3 months ago). A consent form mentioning all contraindications will be presented to all clients by their practitioner during the assessment interview. It is worth mentioning that CryoToning and CryoFacial can be performed on any man or woman over 18 (or over 16 with a parental consent).

What are the side effects?

There are very few side effects: sometimes localized redness that disappears after a few hours, sometimes some local discomfort 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.

What do I need to bring?

Nothing. Please wear comfortable clothing (if having a body procedure). Just stick to the best possible diet and lifestyle to accompany the procedures. Drink plenty of water if doing a Cryo Cellulite to help in draining the cellulite dimples.

What happens after?

CryoToning and CryoFacial are very convenient. There is no downtime, you are ready to go once a session is finished. It is recommended to hydrate the skin with a cream after the procedure (both body and face), as hydration is the base of anti-aging.

What is Cryo Cellulite?

Cryo Cellulite is a specific protocol combining slimming and toning techniques. Slimming eliminates the fat cells accumulated under the skin that are responsible for the orange peel aspect. Toning operates a lymphatic drainage, helping to eliminate cellulite dimpling.

What is Cryo Double Chin?

Cryo Double Chin is a specific protocol addressing excess fat and saggy skin in the neck area. This method combines slimming and toning techniques, with 5 sessions of 15 minutes. Thanks to the Cryoskin specific massaging technique, sessions are very comfortable.
