Cryoslimming is a fat reduction treatment that is performed with a Cryoskin machine. To be able to receive a treatment the client must have pinchable fat, most body parts are ok to perform a treatment with the exception of the breasts in both Women and Men. The reason for that is because the breast area is a glandular area and massaging the area with sub-zero temperatures is not advisable. The candidate must have a BMI no greater than 35, please keep in mind that this is not a weight loss program, although most clients do lose weight while receiving treatments. Please review the contraindications at the end of this article, if you have any of the ones listed, you are not a candidate for Cryoslimming.
It is very important to have knowledgeable staff for your initial consultation, as sometimes it can be tricky to differentiate between excess skin, skin lacking elasticity and pinchable fat (particularly in slender bodies), being able to differentiate that, can make a huge difference on your results. Cryo Studio Sarasota is the only Facility in Florida with Master Training Certified Staff.
We recommend that the candidate does not eat or drink any carbs or sugars two hours prior and two hours after the treatment. During treatment, we are triggering the death of the fat cell, and when you eat or drink carbs and or sugars, you are fueling the fat cells, that is the main reason why the candidate should not take either to maximize results. Instead of carbs and sugars, candidates are advised to eat protein and veggies or a salad, but be careful not to add much dressing on the salad.
On the first appointment, we use thermographic plates (our facility is the only one in Sarasota with this technology) to classify the type of fat adiposity and to have a better visual of where the treatment will be most effective, this system is also a great way for us to track your progress. The candidate also gets on our special scale that will give us the BMI, Metabolic Age, Water percentage, Muscle Quality, and Fat percentage for the whole body as well as by limb. This is also one of the ways in which we track progress. Last but not least we take photos and we measure the treated area on every appointment.
During a slimming treatment, the 4 static heads of the Cryoskin 4.0 are placed with an elastic band on the area with the most concentration of fat. Once in place, the treatment lasts 40 minutes or 50 minutes with our longer session. A water-based get is applied to the skin where the static heads will be placed, this gel is very special as it acts as a conductor of the cold and is safe on the skin. Two electrodes are placed on the candidates’ calf, these two electrodes stimulate lymphatic drainage during treatment.
During the treatment, the temperature on the static heads drops close to zero degrees Celcius. The anatomy of the fat sells does not allow them to survive below 17 degrees Celcius. When the temperature of the fat cells drops below 17 degrees, apoptosis occurs. Apoptosis means programmed cell death, in plain English, the fat cells can not survive at this temperature and the cells self trigger their death. Once dead, the fat cells become cellular debris that goes into your bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, your body’s lymphatic system starts working to flush the cellular debris out of your body over the course of 14 days. That is the reason why it is so important to wait 14 days between slimming treatments because that is how long it takes for a full lymphatic system cycle.
After your slimming treatment is complete our certified staff massages the area to help restore the body temperature to the area, this massage also helps to jump-start lymphatic drainage. This treatment is not painful and 99% of candidates find it very comfortable, many fall asleep during treatment.
It is highly recommended to add Lymphatic Drainage with our one-of-a-kind Presso Massage treatment (only available at Cryo Studio Sarasota) to your cryoslimming treatments, as it will help your lymphatic system flush out your body’s toxins much more effectively and faster. Cryoslimming candidates receive almost 50% off off a presso massage package with the purchase of a Cryoslimming package.
After the treatment is complete, the candidate will be red in the treated area, this is normal, as the skin was just in contact with a very cold applicator. This redness usually disappears soon after treatment and worst-case scenario the next day. Urine may be slightly darker due to your lymphatic system flushing out the toxins, it is imperative that candidates drink at least 2 liters of water per day, not only as a regular healthy routine, but also to maximize drainage and stay well hydrated. To find out more reasons why you should drink more water, please read our water blog.
