Frequently Asked Questions
Cryo T-Shock vs. Coolsculpting
Like Cryo T-Shock, Coolsculpting is a non-invasive fat elimination procedure that destroys fat cells with cryolipolysis. Unlike Cryo T-Shock however, it can take two weeks or more until the slimming results are apparent. Cryo T-Shock slims and sculpts much more quickly than Coolsculpting. Cryo T-Shock results are immediate.
Does Cryo T-Shock actually work?
YES! It really works! There’s a reason why models, Instagram influencers and celebrities are booking out Cryoskin salons. By reducing fat cells to -8 degrees, Cryo T-Shock is able to cause fat cell death without harming the surrounding tissue. It’s a process called cryolipolysis, and it’s quickly catching on as a safer and more effective alternative to liposuction!
How often can I do it?
The usual frequency is 1 treatment every 15 days (for slimming treatments). There is a physiological reason for this: when apoptosis occurs and some fat cells die, waste is formed. This will be eliminated by natural routes (blood, lymphatic system, and then urine). Metabolism must therefore be allowed to evacuate this waste without overloading the circuits. Toning treatments can be performed once every week.
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 was 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.
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.
What if I want to do my tummy, face, arms and legs, can I do them at the same time?
In our opinion and advice: NO
Face and arms in one session
Stomach and legs in another session
In general, it is always advisable to practice treatment on the upper OR lower body in a session.
How long do the results last?
Depending on the individual and depending also on their lifestyle and diet, the results last several months to 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!
What are the contraindications specific to the facial?
Must respect the waiting period if the client uses Botox or fillers. Botox: minimum one month. Fillers: minimum three months.
What do I need to bring?
Nothing. Just stick to the best possible diet and lifestyle to accompany the treatments (drink plenty of water in particular).
How does it feel?
The feeling is rather pleasant thanks to the start of the treatment which is generally done with a short period of skin warming and a gradual but rapid decrease in 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.
Is there anything I should do after the treatment?
Keep well hydrated so the fat is able to flush out quicker. Do not eat anything that converts to insulin (carbs & sugars) 2 hours before and 2-4 hours after your treatment.
Is Cryoskin right for me?
You should lead a healthy lifestyle of good diet and at least moderate exercise and have a BMI of 35 or less. Please reference this chart to see if your height and weight qualify you for the BMI of <35.
