Frequently asked questions

What is cryoskin 3.0?


CryoSkin is the latest technology for fat loss and skin toning treatments. It is No1 in France and is now available in the UK. The machine offers three treatments: CryoSlimming (fat Freezing) which destroys fat cells, CryoToning which tightens and smoothes the skin of any body part, CryoFacial which tightens and rejuvinates the skin on the face.




What is Cryoslimming?


CryoSlimming is the use of low temperatures to eliminate fat cells located under the skin. It is one of the most efficient fat loss treatments on the market. The low temperatures cause fat cells to die naturally (apoptosis). The dead fat cells are then disposed of via the lymphatic system and normal body processes within 2-3 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 (15 Minutes for the double chin). The treatment consists of 2 phases of around 15 minutes each allowing the practitioner to treat symmetrically any part of the body or 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 as the treatment starts with a short period of skin warming before a decrease of 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 dont really realise the temperature is so cold. At the end of the treatment, a short warm phase gives the 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 or chemicals of any type. Over 70 scientific and clinical papers have been published by renowned doctors and researchers which demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of fat freezing treatments when applied correctly. Furthermore, CRYOSKIN 3.0 is the safest and most efficient fat freezing device on the market. CRYOSKIN 3.0 uses no suction cups so there is no risk of damage to the skin and we are able to offer bespoke treatments.




How often can I have a treatment?


After the treatment it will take around 15 days for the lymphatic system to eliminate the dead fat cells as waste. It is thus recommended to wait 2 weeks between CRYOSKIN 3.0 CryoSlimming sessions to allow the kidneys to process this waste.




When will I see the results?


There is an immediate loss of centimeters at the end of the Cryoslimming session, but the final result will be achieved around 15 days later when the elimination of waste is complete.




How efficient is the treatment?


With CRYOSKIN3.0, you can lose on average between 1 and 2cm per session (30min). We recommend 5 sessions to completely treat one body area (depending on the size of the area) research and development tests have shown a 38% average fat loss in five 30 minute sessions. Please note, results may vary from one person to another as people do react differently to the treatment.




Is the result permanent?


CryoSlimming literally destroys the fat cells, whereas some other methods like ultrasound 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 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 parts of the body that cannot be treated with fat freezing is the face and breasts. it is possible to treat the double chin and fat under the jaw.




Can anyone be treated?


Cryoslimming treatments are natural as we only use cold. Thus, there are very few contraindications, the main ones are pregnancy, cancer and allergy to the 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, CryoSlimming is a technique to reduce localised body fat and lose cm, it is not a solution for losing weight.




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


With CRYOSKIN 3.0, we can treat only one area at a 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 temperature as low as -8°C and maintaining it uniformly during the whole treatment. This is why you can obtain very good results in just 30 minutes; however the production of waste is quite significant even if the treatment is short.




What are the side effects?


There are few: sometimes localised redness will appear but this disappears after a few hours. Sometimes some localised discomfort that rarely exceeds 2-3 hours. There may be some temporary itching without consequences.




What do I need to bring?


Nothing. Please wear comfortable clothes if having a body treatment. 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 this will give energy to 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 (2hrs is the minimum). This applies to all kinds of sugar (pasta bread, rice, cereals....) and of course drinks with sugar.




What happens after the treatment?


Cryoslimming treatment is very convienient as it has no down time, you're ready to go once a session is finished. Just make sure you drink plenty of water after the treatment and for the 15 days after to maximise the draining of waste. We also carry products that will help with lymphatic drainage if required.




What are Cryotoning and Cryofacial?


These are perfect if you are looking to slow down the effects of aging. CryoToning and cryoFacial treatments work exactly the same way, using cold temperatures around 0°C to rejuvenate and tighten the skin. This 20 minute treatment applies cold therapy causing local metabolism and micro circulation to improve the area, boost the production of collagen, eliminate cellulite and reduce pore size. By increasing the nutrition to the cells, CryoToning treatments have a skin tightening effect.




How does it feel?


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




How effective are the treatments?


CryoToning: the pumping effect of the blood system caused by the alternating cold and warm 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 (clevage, arms, breast etc) for a tightening effect on the skin or to treat cellulite as the lymphatic drainage resulting from the treatment will help in eliminating cellulite dimpling. Cryofacial: the increase in nutrient and oxygen supply boosts collegen and elastin production, improving the elasticity of the skin. The skin pores retract from the cold for a glowing effect. The face apperars fresher and younger. Skin is noticeably tighter and wrinkles visibly reduced in just one session.




When will I see the results?


Results are visible after the first session.




Is the result permanent?


CryoToning and CryoFacial effects are not permmanent as the skin continues to age. To maximise results, one session every week for 5 weeks is recommended per area, then 1 session a month for maintenance. This treatment plan will have a cumulative effect and help to maintain a higher production of collagen and elastin.




What do I need to bring?


Nothing. Please wear comfortable clothes if having a body treatment. Stick to the best diet and lifestyle to accompany the treatments. Drink plenty of water in particular if doing a cryoToning for cellulite to help with draining the cellulite dimples.




Can anyone be treated?


CryoToning and cryoFacial treatments are natural as they only use the cold. Thus, there are very few contraindications, the main ones being cancer, allergy to cold, breast implants (only for CryoToning targeting breast firmness) Botox/hyaluronic fillers (only for Cryofacial 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 CryoToning and CryoFacial treatments can be performed on any man or woman over the age of 18 (or over 16 with 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 2-3 hours. There may also be some localised itching without consequences .
