CryoSkin 3.0 FAQ

The CryoSlimming treatment with the Cryoskin 2.0. Here's what you need to know before your session!
  • For best results, do not eat sugar (including fruit/ carbs) 2 hours before and after the session.
  • If possible, avoid all kinds of sugar 4-5 hours before and after the session.
  • This applies to all kinds of sugar (pasta, rice, bread, cereals, fruit, juice…)
  • The cold weakens and retracts the adipocyte (fat storage cell). Consuming sugar will return immediate energy to these cells, so the apoptosis (cell death) effect will be less efficient and can even be cancelled.
  • Have clean skin; no oils, lotions, or makeup please. These products have potential to interact with the cold and cause unwanted side effects.
  • The lymphatic system takes 15 days to complete an entire cycle. Results will improve over the 2 weeks following the session. Additional slimming sessions can be completed after waiting two weeks between CryoSlimming sessions.
  • Avoid exercise two hours before a Cryoskin 2.0 session. It will be harder to cool the body down, which is necessary for the effectiveness.
  • Working out after the session is encouraged! Anything that stimulates lymphatic drainage is a good choice (working out, moving, walking, swimming, the BOA Compression system…)
  • For best results, maintain the best possible lifestyle and diet to accompany this treatment. And drink plenty of water.
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 figures displayed on the screen. The CryoSkin 2.0 was launched 5 years ago and is used throughout France. It is currently the most successful non-invasive slimming treatment available in France.

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 do it?

Anyone with the conditions below should not do this treatment:

  • Severe Raynaud’s syndrome
  • People who suffer from very poor circulation
  • Pregnant woman
  • Severe diabetes
  • Cancer
How often can I do it?

Slimming treatments can be performed once every 15 days and lifting 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. 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 system.

Can I workout before/after?

Absolutely there are no side effects to this treatment that will stop you working out.

What do I need to bring?

You do not need to bring anything, we provide you with everything you need.

What is the difference between this and other Cryo 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 heat also. 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 slimming 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 come back before the 2 weeks?

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 one time?

Again, 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.

What if I want to do my face, tummy, arms + legs? Can I do the different options?

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.

Do 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).

Can I do an area for longer?

We may extend the time when we are working with someone who has a much larger body mass. Pre-programmed treatments were performed on average body surfaces so are effective across a variety of body types.

What will happen If I spend too long on one area?

The treatment could become a little irritated and local hypothermia could cause some transient (not serious) pain.

Can I do this if I'm pregnant?

Like any external treatment, this is not advisable on areas such as the tummy, breasts or even the hips. The safest option is to abstain from treatments altogether.

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 minimal cases there were the following side effects:

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.

Some people are more sensitive to the cold than others; skin irritation, inflammation, and numbness that varies in duration is possible and, from our experience, resolves within days but can last weeks.

Who should do this?

Anyone who is looking to lose weight or has stubborn areas of fat they are looking to remove.

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 °.

Can I do anything that enhances the treatment?

By implementing a healthy lifestyle and a good diet.

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 practice 2 or 3 sessions 6 months after the end of treatment to maintain results.

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.

What is the policy for changing/ cancelling my Cryoskin appointment?
