Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe?
The device is very safe. In terms of programming and electronics, it is managed by a computerized Windows system. 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 over 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.
How does it work?
The treatments lasts for 34 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. 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 are the benefits?
Clinical studies have shown that this technology naturally destroys fat cells, but as with most techniques, the results vary from one individual to another. The expected effect is usually rapid: part of the fat cells are destroyed during the session while the others will be eliminated within 2 to 3 weeks. It has also been proven to help with micro circulation and a significant increase in collagen due to the thermal shock that is caused by the hot and cold.
How does it feel?
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.
Who shouldn’t have Cryoskin treatments?
Anyone with the conditions below should not do this treatment:
Severe Raynaud’s syndrome
People who suffer from very poor circulation
How often can I have the treatments?
Slimming treatments can be performed once every 2 weeks and toning 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.
Can I workout before or after the treatments?
Absolutely there are no side effects to this treatment that will stop you working out. Make sure to keep hydrated and drink plenty of good quality still water.
What do I need to bring?
You do not need to bring anything, we provide you with everything you need. For CryoFacials we will remove your makeup for the best results.
What is the difference between this 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. 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.
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 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.
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.
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).
Are there any side effects?
There are generally no side effects apart from the amount you urinate to increase slightly over the 3 days following the treatment along with the appearance of your urine in color. In some cases there were localized redness that disappeared after a few hours and in rare cases there was local pain that did not exceed 2 to 3 hours.
There may also be some itching without consequences and often this is due to the reaction of certain cosmetic products used by clients; to avoid the chances of this do not use anything before coming in for treatment.
There were some experiences of delayed onset muscle soreness from treatments on the stomach due to unintentionally engaging the abdominals, again disappearing later that same evening.
Why do you need the gel?
The gel has been specially designed to retain all its qualities of gliding and protection from -30 ° up to + 60 °.
How long do the 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 see how long treatments stay their best on you and engage in booster sessions every month, quarter or more or less often!
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.
