CryoSlimming

The latest non-invasive technology that naturally destroys fat cells.

WHAT IS CryoSlimming?

CryoSlimming® works by subjecting the subcutaneous layer of skin (where most fat is stored) to sub-zero temperatures.

 

This cold exposure causes the fat cells in the treated area to initiate apoptosis: "an active, programmed process of cellular dismantling." Said another way, apoptosis programs these fat cells to expire. They are then converted to waste and expelled from the body via urine, sweat and breath. The elimination of these cells, once apoptosis has been initiated, is carried out by the lymphatic system - this can be achieved through exercise as well as a variety of lymphatic drainage modalities.

Throughout our 20 years of developing lifestyle and fitness programming for individuals of all ages, abilites, and limitations, we have learned that our bodies don't always respond to diet and exercise as we would expect. Some of us have a stubborn area of fat or loose skin that we just can't get rid of. There are many factors that can contribute to this problem, and we have discovered Cryoskin to be the best and safest solution.

Ideal Candidates

Good candidates for Cryoskin should have "pinchable" fat for the best chance of success.

Also, this procedure may work for individuals who fit the parameters, including:

• People who follow a healthy diet and exercise routine already (or willing to adopt one to maintain results).
• People who are looking to lose fat in targeted body parts that exercise isn't impacting.
• Those who don't need or want to pay for an invasive procedure.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Like other treatments, CryoSlimming best occurs after around 5 sessions. However, the first results are generally noticeable from the first session and often very encouraging.

 

It should be noted that the best results appear from 15 days to 3 weeks after the treatment and extend for several months once the treatments are completed. This is due to fat mass loss and a healthy diet with an active lifestyle.

 

As with anything, the more sessions the better the results will be. As far as lasting results, it will vary according to diet, lifestyle, and individual body response to Cryoskin.

What to expect...

• In preparation for the treatment, it is important to have clean dry skin, drink lots of water, and avoid carbohydrates at least 2 hours before, and 2 hours after the treatment.

• It is always recommended to begin with a consultation. Since most clients want to do the treatment, we always leave enough time after the consultation for one Cryoskin treatment. The consultation takes about 15 minutes, and you should plan for at least an hour for the very first appointment.

• Before each treatment the cryo therapist will discuss your results from the previous session, your main concerns, and where you would like the treatment to focus on. Taking your goals into consideration, the cryo therapist will advise what technique is best to achieve your desired results.

• Depending on the area being treated for CryoSlimming, the cryo therapist will take measurements and/or a before photo.

• A gel will be applied to the skin where the treatment will be performed.

• The treatment starts and ends with a warming sequence using the Cryoskin wand. The cold sequence feels like a deep tissue massage and many clients say it is comfortable and enjoyable.

• Once the treatment is completed, depending on the area, measurements and/or an after photo may be taken.

• Most clients see results from the first session and are very promising, but sustainable results tend to happen around the third and fourth session.

• The skin may be red after the treatment and usually goes away after 30 minutes.

• At the end of the appointment, the cryo therapist will ask if you have any questions and when you would like to book your next appointment. You’ll also be reminded to drink lots of water and make good choices!

FAQ

Cryoskin FAQ
  • What is Cryotherapy?
    Cryotherapy uses extremely low temperatures (about -230ºF) for medical and therapeutic purposes; however, different forms of cold therapy have been used to treat and relieve pain and illness for generations.
  • What are the benefits of Cryotherapy?
    There are many beneifits to cryotherapy and the use of Cryotherapy machines, which are also known as Cryosaunas. Research and clinical studies show that Cryotherapy can be used to treat and relieve muscle pain and soreness. It can also speed up the recovery process. This makes it an effective alternative to the simple applications, such as ice packs and ice baths or tubs. Cryotherapy can relieve muscle pain, sprains, swelling, and joint stiffness. Many clients also report improvements in sleep quality and restfulness.
  • How does Cryotherapy work?
    The Whole-body Cryosauna uses a gaseous form of nitrogen to lower skin surface temperature by 30-50 degrees during a two-three minute session. The exposed skin reacts to the extreme temperatures by sending messages to the brain that stimulate natural regulatory functions of the body. In addition, the skin's exposure to these subzero temperatures trigger the release of anti-inflammatory molecules, endorphins, toxins, and increases oxygen circulation within the bloodstream.
  • How long does it take to feel the benefits of Cryotherapy?
    It doesn't take very long to start experiencing the benefits of Cryotherapy. During the first few minutes, your brain releases endorphins and adrenaline into your body as your skin temperature drops to about 0º Celsius. Your core body temperature remains at about 37º Celsius. Cryotherapy treatments typically only takes around five minutes, but the Recovery XR Cryo Chamber from Cryo Innovations provides short-term results in just three. After treatment, your capillaries expand delivering super-oxygenated blood throughout the body. This greatly increases the speed of recovery. Users feel this as a tingling sensation and the effects can last six to eight hours.
  • Is Cryotherapy uncomfortable?
    The cold air used during treatment does not contain any moisture, nor is there any air current, so it is very tolerable. Towards the end of the treatment, you may get a "pins and needles" sensation, but it will disappear immediately after leaving the cryochamber.
  • I'm claustrophobic, can I still use the Cryotherapy chamber?"
    Yes. The cryochamber is open at the top and adjusted to fit the height of the client, and your head and neck are always above the opening so you are not fully enclosed. Although the cryochamber has a door that will be closed during the treatment, it will not be locked so you may step out at any time if needed.
  • What should I wear during a Cryotherapy treatment?
    The most important safety precaution is that the client and their clothing are completely dry upon entering the chamber. Because of the very low temperatures, clients are required to wear cotton or wool foot and hand protection plus either cotton underwear (for men) or a bathing suit to protect intimate body parts. All other clothing is removed. Jewelry should not be worn.
  • How soon can I expect results from Cryotherapy treatment?
    After completing your first treatment your body will release endorphins, which are hormones that make you feel good and energetic. This feeling will likely last for several hours. Depending on your physical condition, you may experience instant relief from joint and muscle pain, improved energy, and increased flexibility that will last for several hours or even days.
  • Is one Cryotherapy treatment enough?
    While every therapy session is beneficial and you'll feel immediate results, research has shown that you will experience improved and cumulative benefits after a minimum of 10 sessions, within a two or three week period. (To achieve peak performance, professional athletes might benefit from having up to two sessions a day). After that you can take fewer treatments spaced further apart to maintain and improve on your results (for example, once or twice a week).
  • Is Cryotherapy dangerous?
    No, the liquid nitrogen that is used as a chilling agent does not come into contact with your skin, and it is the same nitrogen that makes up the air we breathe (actually 78% of it). In the chamber, a person breathes room-air. For added safety, chambers are equipped with an oxygen monitor. A trained operator is always present during the treatment to control the temperature levels and monitor your comfort.
  • Is there anyone who shouldn't use a Cryochamber?
    Anyone who is pregnant, has severe unmanaged hypertension (BP > 180/100), has a cardiac pacemaker, is being treated for cancer, has deep vein thrombosis, acute or recent myocardial infarction, uncontrolled seizures, fever, unstable agina pectoris, Raynaud's syndrome, cold allergy, acute kidney and urinary tract diseases, open wounds or ulcers, or is under the influence of drugs or alcohol is advised not to use Cryotherapy.
  • Can I catch a cold from whole-body Cryotherapy?
    No, you can't. The stimulation of the immune system can actually help decrease the severity and frequency of future colds.
  • Do I have to take a shower before or after a session?
    Showering is not necessary before or after Cryotherapy. The entire procedure is dry and does not make your skin wet. Many clients come by during their lunch break since the entire treatment is only 3 minutes long. We can accommodate your specific scheduling request.
  • How do I feel after a session?
    Whole Body Cryotherapy stimulates the body to release endorphins, the hormones that make us feel alert and energetic. The energized effects from each session typically last six to eight hours post treatment. The more treatments you do in close succession, the longer the endorphin high lasts. Many clients also report improvements in their sleep quality after Cryotherapy. Muscle aches and stiff joints also feel a sense of relief.
  • Is Nitrogen gas dangerous?
    Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments result in a very different response from the body compared to traditional ice baths. Two to three minutes in the Cryosauna, which is a cold, dry nitrogen vapor, is equivalent to 20-30 minutes in an ice bath without the uncomfortable feeling of submerging in ice water. The nitrogen vapor chills the top skin layers and cold receptors lowering the outer body's temp 30-50 degrees. This causes the brain to restrict blood flow to your extremities, which is the bodies natural fight-or-flight response to extreme cold. The body reacts to the Whole Body Cryotherapy treatment by releasing anti-inflammatory proteins and endorphins resulting in super-charged blood. Fifteen minutes in an ice bath of cold water initially causes the body to move blood to the extremities and results in a lowering of the body's core temperature. Ice baths do not supercharge the blood like Cryotherapy.
  • Are there negative effects to Cryotherapy?
    In persons who have conditions like hypothyroidism, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, heart conditions, nervous system diseases and blood diseases, amongst others, there is a greater risk of cryotherapy side effects in persons who are over the age of sixty five, those with substance abuse problems, persons with emotional disorders and those who have known problems with cold tolerance. These are examples of why screening before treatment are so critically important.
  • Is it safe to get that cold?
    Yes it is safe. During the 3 minute session your skins temperature will drop but your core temperature will remain at 98.6ºF/37ºC, its natural state.
  • Do I have to do anything specifically after my session?
    No, you do not have to do anything specifically after your session, but hydrating is always a good idea.
  • Is there anything I should avoid after my session?
    There is nothing you need to avoid after a cryochamber session.
  • Why do people use whole-body Cryotherapy?
    Whole-body Cryotherapy is used for its therapeutic abilities as well as its ability to reduce inflammation and promote the repair of damaged tissue.
