CRYOSKIN 3.0 FAQ

What is CRYOSKIN 3.0?

CRYOSKIN 3.0 is the latest technology for fat loss and skin toning treatments. N°1 in France, it is now available in the UK. The machine offers 3 treatments: CryoSlimming (fat freezing) destroys fat cells, CryoToning tightens and smooths the skin of any body part, CryoFacelift 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 fat loss treatments 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 to 3 weeks.

How does a CryoSlimming (fat freezing) treatment work?

The practitioner massages the treatment zone with the handset, applying low temperatures. One session lasts around 30 minutes depending on the body area (14 minutes for the double chin). The treatment consists of 2 phases of circa 15 minutes each, allowing the practitioner to treat symmetrically any part of the body or the limbs. Each phase starts with a warm period and then the temperature drops quickly to negative (Thermal Shock).

How does it feel?

The feeling is rather pleasant thanks to the start of the treatment which is done with a short period of skin warming before a gradual but rapid decrease of the temperature (Thermal Shock). When the temperature reaches negative levels (down to -8°C for large body zones), the treated area is slightly numbed by the cold. This is why clients usually say they don’t really realise that the temperature is that cold. At the end of the treatment, a short warm phase gives a feeling of warmth and lightness at the same time.

Is it safe?

CryoSlimming treatments are natural as we only use cold. There are no injections and no radiation of any type. Over 70 scientific and clinical papers have been published by renowned doctors and researchers which demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of cryolipolysis treatments when applied correctly. Furthermore, CRYOSKIN 3.0 is the safest and most efficient cryolipolysis device on the market. CRYOSKIN 3.0 uses no suction cups. There is no risk of damage to the skin.

How efficient is the treatment?

With CRYOSKIN 3.0 you can lose on average between 1 and 2 cm per session (30 min). We recommend 5 sessions to completely treat one body area (depending on the size of the area). R&D tests have shown a 38% average fat loss in 5 thirty-minute sessions. Please note that results may vary from one person to another as people do react differently to the treatment.

How often can I have a treatment?

After the treatment, 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 CRYOSKIN 3.0 CryoSlimming sessions to allow the kidneys to process the waste.

When will I see the result?

There is an immediate loss of centimetres 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 treat any part of the body?

CRYOSKIN 3.0 can be used for treating most parts of the body, thanks to the flexibility and the precision of the handset. The only part of the body that cannot be treated with cryolipolysis is the breast. It is not possible to do cryolipolysis on the face neither, but it is possible to treat the double chin and the fat under the jaws.

Is it possible to treat different areas at the same time?

With CRYOSKIN 3.0, we can treat only one area at the time as the treatment is performed manually by the practitioner. The length of one treatment is 30 minutes maximum. It is important not to exceed this period to avoid overloading the kidneys with waste. It is worth mentioning that only CRYOSKIN 3.0 is capable of reaching a temperature as low as -8°C and maintaining it uniformly during the whole treatment. This is why you can obtain very good results with CRYOSKIN 3.0 in just 30 minutes; however, the production of waste is quite significant even if the treatment is short.

Is the result permanent?

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

Can anybody be treated?

CryoSlimming treatments are natural as we only use 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 treatments 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 localised body fat and lose cm, it is not a solution for losing weight.

What are the side effects?

There are few: sometimes localised 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 treatment). Just stick to the best possible diet and lifestyle to accompany the treatments. For best results, do not eat sugar 2 hours before and after the session, as sugar will give energy to the fat cells and reduce the efficiency of the treatment. If possible, avoid all kinds of sugar 4-5 hours before and after the CryoSlimming session (2 hours is the minimum). This applies to all kinds of sugar (pasta, rice, bread, cereals...) and of course fast sugar and drinks with sugar.

What happens after the treatment?

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

CRYOTONING AND CRYOFACELIFT

What are CryoToning and CryoFacelift?

CryoToning and CryoFacelift treatments work exactly in the same way, using cold temperatures around 0°C to rejuvenate and tighten the skin. The cold accelerates biochemical reactions, increasing the oxygen and nutrient supply to the tissue with a draining effect, and stimulates the production of the fibroblasts (collagen and elastin). It is possible to treat any part of the body (CryoToning) or the face (CryoFacelift).

How does a CryoToning or CryoFacelift treatment work?

The practitioner will massage the treatment zone using the handset, applying low temperatures. One session lasts between 20 and 30 minutes depending on the body area (20 minutes for the face). The treatment consists of 2 phases of 10 to 15 minutes each allowing the practitioner to treat symmetrically any part of the body, the limbs or the face.

How does it feel?

The treatment is very comfortable. There is no initial warm period as the objective here is not fat freezing. The client can feel the cold temperatures during the session, but as the temperature is not very low and the beauty therapist soothes the treated zones with her hand after passing the handset, the cold sensation is very light.

Is it safe?

CryoToning and CryoFacelift treatments are natural as they only use cold. It is the modern ice bath. There is no abrasion and no injections, treatment is kind to the skin.

How efficient are the treatments?

CryoToning: the cold opens the blood vessels, increasing oxygen and nutrient supply to the cells, with a draining effect. The skin appears instantly smoother and firmer. CryoToning treatments can be performed on any part of the body (cleavage, arms, breast, etc.) for a tightening effect on the skin, or to treat cellulite as the lymphatic drainage resulting from the treatments will help to empty the cellulite dimples.

CryoFacelift: the increase in nutrient and oxygen supply boosts collagen and elastin production, improving the elasticity of the skin. The skin pores retract with the cold for a glowing effect. The face appears fresher and younger. Skin is noticeably tighter, and wrinkles visibly reduced in just one twenty-minute session.

How often can I have a treatment?

It is possible to do a CryoToning treatment 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 CryoFacelift treatment every week. It is also possible to combine CryoToning or CryoFacelift treatments with CryoSlimming Treatments on the same day (but not on the same body zone), for example you can do a CryoSlimming abdomen, followed by a CryoFacelift or a CryoToning Cellulite.

When will I see the result?

Results are visible just after the first session.

Is the result permanent?

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

Can anybody be treated?

CryoToning and CryoFacelift treatments 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 CryoFacelift and only if injected less than 2 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 CryoFacelift treatments 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 localised 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 treatment). Just stick to the best possible diet and lifestyle to accompany the treatments. Drink plenty of water in particular if doing a CryoToning Cellulite to help in draining the cellulite dimples.

What happens after the treatment?

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