What Is Cryo T-Shock Therapy?

  • Cryo T-Shock therapy hyper stimulates the skin and tissue greatly increasing all cellular activity.

  • Cryo T-Shock therapy has a high efficacy in aesthetics for slimming and body reshaping.

  • Cryotherapy relaxes the muscles of the face as well as larger, targeted, areas. 

  • Results achieved also apply to the skin, immediately improves appearance by tightening skin and creating a healthy glow. 

  • Multiple sessions result in increases in collagen and elastin production. 

 

 

Is The Cryo T-Shock 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 are displayed on the screen; monitored by your cryotherapist.

How Does It Work?

  • The body contouring treatments last for roughly 30 minutes per treatment area for a total of approximately 60 minutes per session. The session begins with 2 minutes of heat and then a prolonged period of cold (22-26 minutes) and then back to heat for another 2-3 minutes.

  • The purpose of the treatment is to lower the temperature of the fat cells enough to cause what is known as apoptosis, or natural cell death. This phenomenon is triggered when the temperature of the fat tissue is between 12°C and 17°C. The cells are then naturally passed through the body’s lymphatic system and excreted through sweat and urine.

What Are The Benefits?

  • Clinical studies have shown that this technology is effective at naturally destroying 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 most will be eliminated within 2 to 3 weeks after treatment. It has also been proven to help with micro-circulation and increase in collagen as a result of to the thermal shock, caused by the contrast in hot and cold applications.

Contraindications

  • Anyone with the conditions below should not do this treatment:

  • Kidney disease or dialysis

  • Pregnant women

  • Severe diabetes, especially where there is sensation loss.

  • Undergoing chemotherapy

  • Received Botox within 2 weeks prior

  • Received fillers within 4 weeks prior

 

What Should I Do Following A Treatment?

To promote lymphatic drainage:

  • A vigorous 30 minute workout

  • 10-15 minutes on a vibration plate

  • A massage

  • Dry brushing 

  • Dry heat sauna session

  • A lymphatic drainage session

 

Frequency of Treatments

  • Fat freezing 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 fat cells die, waste is formed. This will be eliminated by natural routes (blood, lymphatic system and urine). Your metabolism must be allowed to evacuate this waste without overloading the system. Best executed through exercise and/or lymphatic drainage. 

 

Maximum Number of Areas That Can Be Treated Simultaneously

  • Two. Consisting of one large and one small, as to not overload the body’s pathways. There is also the strong internal cooling of the tissues and the treating of more areas at the same time and, in extreme cases, may cause hypothermia and fatigue.

  • Acceptable treatment areas include: arms/legs, arms/stomach, arms/back, buttocks/legs

How Does It Feel?

  • The treatment is painless, with some clients describing it as rather pleasant and relaxing. This is due to the session beginning with skin warming and the the gradual decrease of temperature as well as the massage techniques applied.

 

What’s The Difference Between The Cryo T Shock & Other Body Contouring Treatments?

  • There are other manual cryotherapy machines however, clinical tests and experience have shown that no other machine is currently capable of such dramatic results as the Cryo T-Shock. These results are due to the contrast therapy the device produces, with exposure to both hot and cold temperatures. The exchange within these temperatures has a dramatic effect on the body’s tissues causing them to drop to 12°C. When fat tissues reach this temperature apoptosis occurs (natural cell death) and dead adipose cells are passed through the body’s lymphatic system.

 

Possible Side Effects

  • There are generally no side effects apart from an increase in urination over the 3 days following the treatment along with the appearance of your urine in color. Any localized redness will disappear after a few hours. In rare cases localized pain may occur but will dissipate within 2-3 hours. Itching may occur however this is typically due to a reaction of certain cosmetic products used by clients. It is best to remove all cosmetics, lotions and perfumes prior to treatment.

 

How Quickly Will I See Results?

  • The first results are generally visible within a week following the first session. 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 treatment.

 

How Long Do The Results Last?

  • Depending on the individual and their diet and lifestyle, the results last several months to several years. For Cellulite and Skin Tightening an ongoing monthly maintenance schedule is recommended.

 

Who Should Consider This Treatment?

  • Anyone who is looking to lose weight, reduce cellulite, tighten saggy skin or treat stubborn areas of fat they are looking to remove.
