WHAT IS CRYO BODY-SCULPTING AND ITS BENEFITS?
Cryo body-sculpting can aid in the removal of stubborn pockets of subcutaneous fat that are immune to diet and exercise via the cryo-lipolysis process. Cryo-lipolysis works by targeting and cooling the surface of the skin in a matter of seconds (90 degrees F to 39 degrees F) thereby triggering the process of destroying underlying fat cells (apoptosis) without damaging nerves or other body tissues. Days, weeks, and months post-treatment, these fat cells will breakdown and die off. As this happens, they are flushed out of your body as waste or processed through your lymphatic system. Clients often see an instant, visible results which is the effect of first flattening the fat cells before they die off. Single areas can be treated as often as once a week thereby delivering a comfortable and efficient alternative to traditional surgical and other body sculpting procedures.
It is important to note that while the results are permanent as the fat cells die off, new fat cells can appear without a healthy diet, exercise and maintenance.
Benefits can include:
Loose "baby belly" tightening
Arm, neck and leg sculpting

A BRIEF HISTORY
Cryo-lipolysis, also known as "fat freezing", was discovered by two scientists at Harvard who noticed that some children who sucked on popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. They discovered that freezing temperatures can target fat cells without damaging the skin.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE CRYO BODY SCULPTING?
We wish we could give you a definitive answer, however, the number of sessions needed and frequency will vary based on the individual and their goals. During your first treatment, our CryoSpecialist will chat with you at length about your goals, history, means, and schedule. Together you will develop a plan that works towards achieving your goals without becoming an additional stressor in your life. Balance is key.
WHAT DO I WEAR?
We suggest wearing loose comfortable clothing the day of your service.
HOW DO I PREPARE?
(1) Increase water intake, include lemon if possible
(2) Keep skin free of lotions to treated areas
(3) Wear loose clothing day of treatment
(4) Avoid caffeine, sugar and carbs 2 – 3 hours before treatment (if possible 4 – 5 hours is best)
(5) Avoid exercise directly before a session as this will make it more difficult to cool your body sufficiently to achieve cryolipolysis.

WHAT ARE THE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS IN PLACE?
Your safety is our highest priority in all that we do! Only a trained and certified cryotherapy specialist can conduct your session. It is the responsibility of the cryotherapy specialist to ensure that you are appropriately prepared, dressed and have the correct settings in place for your session. Our localized cryotherapy device uses CO2, just like a fire extinguisher, and has automatic shut off features if the device is too close to your skin or your skin temperature drops below the appropriate temperature. Additionally, the device can only be used in increments of 30, 60 or 90 seconds. Thereby requiring the cryo specialist to be present, alert and monitoring at all times to continue your service.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER MY SESSION?
At a minimum:
WHAT IS THE AGE REQUIREMENT?
