    How does Cryoskin work?
    The treatments last for 28 minutes and are done manually through a massage technique. The session begins with 2 minutes of heat and then a decrease in temperature to -8 degrees for the duration of the session. The purpose of the treatment is to lower the temperature of the fat cells enough to cause what is known as the phenomenon of apoptosis.
  2. 4
    What are the benefits?
    Clinical studies have shown that this technology naturally destroys 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 the others will be eliminated within 2 to 3 weeks.
  3. 0
    Is Cryoskin 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 and the temperature is controlled in real time. The machine was launched 5 years ago, and Cryoskin is the most successful non-invasive treatment available.
  4. 1
    How does it feel?
    The treatment is painless, with some clients describing it as rather pleasant. This is due to the massage technique and the session beginning with skin warming descending into the gradual decrease of temperature.
  5. 7
    What is the difference between Cryoskin and other treatments?
    There are other manual cryotherapy machines, however tests and experience have shown that no other machine is currently capable of such dramatic results as the Cryoskin process. These results are due to the fact that the device not only produces cold, it also produces heat.
  6. 8
    Who shouldn't have this treatment done?
    Anyone with these conditions are non-candidates: Raynaud’s syndrome, people with poor circulation, pregnant woman, diabetes, cancer. We apologize!
  7. 9
    How often can I do the treatment?
    Slimming treatments can only be performed once every 15 days and lifting treatments can only be performed every 7 days. There is a physiological reason for this: when apoptosis occurs and some fat cells die, waste is formed. This will be eliminated by natural routes (blood, lymphatic system, and then urine). Metabolism must therefore be allowed to evacuate this waste without overloading the system.
  8. 11
    Can I workout before/after?
    Absolutely there are no side effects to this treatment that will stop you working out. A healthy diet and exercise is recommended.
  9. 21
    What do I need to bring to the appointment?
    You do not need to bring anything, we provide everything you need.
  10. 12
    Why can I only get the slimming treatment every 2 weeks?
    The natural destruction of fat cells will cause cell waste. This waste is passed through the body naturally, first through the blood then the lymphatic system and then urine.
  11. 16
    Why can I only have 2 areas done at one time?
    Again, to not overload the body’s pathways. There is also a strong internal cooling of the tissues and the treating of more zones at the same time could cause in extreme cases hypothermia and fatigue.
  12. 14
    What if I want to do my face, tummy, arms + legs? Can I do the different options?
    In our opinion and advice the answer is NO. Face and arms are done in one session, and stomach and legs in another session. In general, it is always advisable to practice the treatment on the upper OR lower body in a session. The legs would count as one area because you would divide the time between each leg (14 minutes on one leg, 14 minutes on the other).
  13. 15
    Can I do one area longer?
    We may extend the time when we are working with someone who has a much larger body mass. Pre-programmed treatments are performed so they can be effective across a variety of body types. If you spend too long in one area, the treatment could become irritated and local hypothermia could cause some transient (not serious) pain.
  14. 18
    Are there any side effects?
    There are generally no side effects, however every person will vary. You will experience an increase in urination slightly over the first 3 days, along with a change in your urination color.
  15. 20
    Why is gel applied?
    The gel has been specially designed to retain all its qualities of gliding and protection from -30 ° up to + 60 °.
  16. 17
    How long do the results last?
    Depending on the individual and depending on your lifestyle and diet, the results last several months or several years. It is advisable to receive 2 or 3 sessions in 6 months after the end of treatment to maintain results.
  17. 10
    How quickly will I see the results?
    The first results are generally visible from the first session and are often very encouraging. However, it should be noted that the best results appear in 15 days to 3 weeks after the start of treatment and will extend for several months after the end of treatment.
  18. 19
    Continuation of #19
    Although minimal, some people experience localized redness that disappeared after a few hours and in rare cases there was local pain which did not exceed longer than 3 hours. There may also be some itching without consequences and often this is due to the reaction of certain cosmetic products used by clients; to avoid the chances of this do not use anything before coming in for treatment. Also, there were some experiences of delayed onset muscle soreness from treatments on the stomach due to unintentionally engaging the abdominals, again disappearing later that same evening.
  19. 3
    Continuation of #3
    This phenomenon is triggered when the temperature of the fat tissue is between 17 and 12° and causes these cells to die. These cells are then naturally passed through the body through the lymphatic system and urine.
  20. 5
    Continuation of #5
    Also, Cryoskin has been proven to help with micro circulation and a significant increase in collagen due to the thermal shock that is caused by the hot and cold. Anyone who has stubborn areas of fat or are looking to lose some inches are great candidates.
  21. 7
    Continuation of #7
    The exchange within these temperatures has a dramatic effect on the body’s tissues causing them to drop to 12 ° when fat tissues reach this temperature they die and are passed through the lymphatic system.
  22. 13
    Continuation of #13
    This process on average takes 2 weeks. If you come back before 2 weeks, the results may be compromised because of the natural cycle of waste therefore causing an increase the risk of clogging the pathways. This does not represent a significant risk but would compromise the results.

  • Slimming is for candidates wanting to lose 22 lbs or more. If you are looking to lose less than 22 lbs, then we recommend toning.
  • Do not wear any products such as lotion on the treatment area before the session, it is important to keep the skin clean. 
  • We do not work on any breast implants, anyone with liver and/or kidney problems, diabetes, cancer, Raynaud’s syndrome, people with poor circulation, pregnant woman, and/or anyone with health issues.
  • Following the treatment, please do not eat any sugar 3 hours before and 3 hours after the session. This applies to all kinds of sugars, including simple starches and sugars (pasta, rice, bread, etc). The cold weakens and retracts adipocytes (fat storage cells), so by consuming sugar this will return immediate energy to these cells and apoptosis (cell death) effect will be less efficient and can even be canceled.
  • The lymphatic system takes 15 days to complete an entire cycle. Results will improve over a 2 week period following the session. Additional slimming sessions can be completed 2 weeks after the initial treatment. Toning sessions can be done every week.
  • Avoid exercise 24 hours before a session. It will be harder for the body to cool down and complete the slimming process effectively.
  • It is important to drink plenty of water after the treatment. 
  • We recommend no alcohol 48 hours before and at least 15 days after, this is very important due to the affect alcohol has on your body and liver.
  • For the best results, maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle to accompany the treatment.​​
