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:

 

Cellulite smoothing

Glute lift

Abdominal sculpting

Loose "baby belly" tightening

Arm, neck and leg sculpting

Breast lift/reduction

Body Slimming

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.

FAQS

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. However, it is important to note that a single area can be treated as frequently as 1x week allowing you to achieve your body-sculpting goals as quickly as possible. Further, a second area of treatment can be done the very next day.




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.




HOW LONG IS A SESSION?


Length of your appointment time will vary based upon the Cryo Body Sculpting goals you are looking to achieve. Your first appointment will always be the longest as we are getting to know each other. For planning purposes, we set aside 45 - 60 minutes for your first visit.




HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE NECESSARY?


You may see immediate results after your first session. However, depending on your desired results multiple sessions will likely be required. During your first visit, our CryoSpecialist will sit with you and make recommendations for frequency and minimum number of sessions required to achieve desired results. Always keeping in mind that these are purely recommendations and that everyone’s “body” is different and will react to the treatment differently. Therefore, the recommendations will be purely based upon previous customers’ experience and are in no way a guarantee/promise of results.




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: -Continue to increase water intake and add lemon and/or apple cider vinegar, if possible -Avoid alcohol (1 day) -Avoid processed foods, artificial sweeteners, dairy and soy (1 – 2 days) -Avoid sugars (especially fructose), refined grains (especially gluten), chemically modified fats and limit high salt foods (1 - 2 days) -Increase your magnesium intake -Exercise daily … 15 – 30 minutes -Practice deep breathing techniques -Dry brush in sweeping motions, always towards heart -Massage or wrap of the area for slight compression (legs, arms or stomach) In addition, please be mindful that Cryo Body-Sculpting is only targeting subcuntaneous fat, the fat that sits just below your skin. This does not improve visceral fat, the fat around your organs. Therefore, a healthy diet and moderate exercise is ALWAYS recommended in conjunction with Cryo Body-Sculpting.




WHAT IS THE AGE REQUIREMENT?


18 years of age.




ARE THERE ANY HEALTH CONCERNS TO CONSIDER?


Anyone with the following conditions may not experience cryotherapy body-sculpting: History of blood clots Allergy to cold Pregnancy Raynaud’s Syndrome History of cancer Disease of the blood vessels Uncontrolled seizure disorder




DOES IT HURT?


Absolutely not.




BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES





HOW IS CRYO BODY-SCULPTING DIFFERENT THAN OTHER SIMILAR TREATMENTS?


There are similar treatments out there that are using the same science, cryo-lipolysis, to achieve apoptosis (fat cell death) but each are VERY different in their application, pricing and commitment. Our Cryo Body-Sculpting is currently the world's most versatile cryostimulation device on the market. It was designed and manufactured in the UK, in conjunction with experts in physiotherapy and pathophysiology, to deliver the quickest application with the most effective benefits. The technology utilizes hyper-cooled gas that is sprayed onto the treatment area in a high velocity. Our process delivers a more targeted flow, the pressure is much higher, and the temperature of application is lower. This allows us to achieve deeper penetration and faster cooling, overcoming the resistance of hardened fat cells. Additionally, because our device uses a "spray" application, we are able to target even the smallest of areas. Clients may experience being cold, but should not experience any discomfort. After the treatment, most of our clients actually feel more energetic and enthusiastic! On average, a single session will be 20 - 25 minutes start to finish, which includes a 10 minute session on our vibration plate to stimulate your lymphatic system. Our sculpting sessions can be performed once a week targeting the same area allowing for quicker results at the most affordable price. Another device on the market utilizes a flat round applicator applied to skin by a technician. The applicator is applied in massage-like manner over the treatment area. The applicator alternates between cold and warm temperatures. They also use gels on the treated area that allows the applicator to glide more smoothly over the treatment area. The gel is removed after the treatment. Yet another device uses applicators & suction to freeze fat. This applicator limits the areas in which they can target. Clients can also feel uncomfortable to some due to the combination of suction and cold. Additionally, on rare occasions these other applications can result in some delayed onset pain, typically beginning several days after treatment. This normally subsides within 1-2 weeks. Treatments with these other devices tend to run 45-60 minutes, are more expensive and do NOT typically include a 10 minute session on a vibration plate to stimulate the lymphatic system. Additionally, due to their device size, smaller areas of treatment can sometimes be tricky. Multiple treatments are typically necessary and are limited to a minimum of four weeks between sessions, prolonging the finish line of your sculpting desires. Finally, in a very small number of cases, other applications have seen that a treated area can harden into a butter stick-shaped lump (paradoxical adipose hyperplasia). Since our treatment ultilizes a spray-on application, this is likely to not occur.
