cryo contouring

what is it?

Cryo Contouring is a safe, painless, cost effective, non-invasive fat reduction treatment and a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

The treatment’s primary target areas are the abdomen, “love handles”, buttocks, thighs & arms. Cryo Contouring can also be used to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Cryo Contouring Facials target the forehead, cheeks and chin. It can also be used for the neck and spot treatment for areas such as crows feet, frown and laugh lines. They increase microcirculation, boost collagen, tighten skin and reduce wrinkles.

how does it work?

Cryo Contouring safely and effectively uses thermal shock to naturally destroy adipose cell or fat cells without any damage to the skin.

This process lowers the temperature of the targeted fat cells to between 12 and 17C. The skin vessels and capillaries undergo a period of vasoconstriction (constriction of blood vessels) followed by vasodilatation (dilation of blood vessels) upon finishing the session.

The machine breaks down fat cells by starting the treatment with heat, then a prolonged period of cold, then heat again. Exposure to cooling causes fat cell apoptosis – a natural, controlled cell death, which leads to the release of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators that gradually digest the affected cells in the days to weeks after the procedure. The body naturally flushes the fat cells out through the bloodstream and then the lymphatic system.

In addition to reducing subcutaneous fat, the intense cold activates collagen production resulting in smoother and firmer skin with improved elasticity.

please read on for answers to commonly asked questions

how many sessions do i need?

The research on cryolypolysis with this modality suggests an average of 5 sessions for each area of interest.

Although each session yields physical results, they are generally visible following the second or third session. It should be noted that physiological changes peak at day 15 to 3 weeks after each treatment and extend for several months after the end of treatment.

how long do results last?

Depending on the individual and also on their lifestyle and diet, the results last several months to several years. For cellulite and skin tightening treatments an ongoing monthly maintenance schedule is recommended after initial treatments.

where does the fat go? Can it come back?

The Cryo Contouring fat-freezing procedure reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%. The body naturally flushes the fat cells out through the bloodstream and the lymphatic system in a few days to weeks after treatment, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. And, unlike what happens with other procedures, there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.

is it safe?

The treatment is completely safe. It is a non-invasive treatment of adipose tissue to induce lipolysis – the breaking down of fat cells. It reduces body fat without damage to other tissues. It consists of a special developed technique of controlled heat and cold used and applied to the client’s skin. The treatment requires no anesthesia, and has no risk of scarring or neuropathy. 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 figures displayed on the screen.

what has clinical research demonstrated?

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 most 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. Research is ongoing.

what are the contraindications?

Anyone with the conditions below should not do this treatment:
Kidney disease or dialysis
Pregnant women
Severe diabetes
Undergoing chemotherapy
Inflamed, infected, or swollen areas of skin
Should you have any questions, you should consult your doctor

Cryo Facials can be performed no less than two weeks after Botox injections and 30 days after fillers

what side effects may occur?

There are generally no side effects apart from an increased urination over several days following the treatment.

how does it feel?

Although some pressure is applied, the treatment is painless, with some clients describing it as rather pleasant. As the treatment is performed by a technician, if you are feeling any discomfort, slight adjustments of temperature and pressure can be made to better suit you without compromising its effectiveness.

how does it differ from coolsculpting?

CoolSculpting typically costs around twice as much as Cryo Contouring. Cryo Contouring is comparatively more affordable and also a painless process. It requires no anesthesia, has no risk of scarring or neuropathy, and only requires 25 to 60 minutes per treatment. Cryo Contouring incorporates a cycle of heat-cold-heat to facilitate in the body’s pathways to eliminate “waste”. CoolSculpting utilizes a 2 minute massage after cold therapy of the target area, but heat has been found to be more effective in promoting lymphatic drainage.

how many areas can I get done in one visit?

Two body areas plus a facial. We limit fat-freezing time to 60 mins to not overload the body’s 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.
