CRYOSKIN 3.O FAQs
How does the treatment work?
The machine itself functions by a Peltier effect (thermoelectric cooling)
regulated by a hydraulic system which ensures a very high inertia which is
absolutely necessary for the correct application of the treatment in a minimum
amount of time. These characteristics, which are very difficult to obtain, make it
possible to enact a very rapid cooling of the fat tissues while avoiding the risk
of lesions of the skin tissue due to an application that is too long. The principle
of the treatment is to lower the temperature of the fat cells enough to cause
what is called the phenomenon of apoptosis. This phenomenon is triggered
when the temperature of the fat tissues is between 17 and 12 ° degrees Celsius and assists in the self-initated death of these cells.
Is it 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 a curve and figures displayed on the screen. In the event of a malfunction, the device alerts the operator by sounding a tone and displaying an error message.
How does it feel?
83% found the treatment comfortable
35% found the treatment relaxing
13% found the treatment bearable
Has anyone had any serious side effects?
No. (100 people tested + over 300 machines in use in France)
How often can I do it?
The usual frequency is 1 treatment every 15 days (for slimming treatments). 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 circuits. Toning treatments can be performed once every week
Do I lose weight with this treatment?
It is very common that there is a loss of weight during the treatment. This is due both to the loss of fat mass but also to the drainage techniques (exercise, etc) and the diet and lifestyle required.
Is it okay to treat people who have an open wound?
No. Unless you cover the wound with some sort of plaster. The reason for this is not to pass bodily fluid onto the wand that is used in the session. If you cover the wound, then treat through the cover the treatment should help healing due to increased blood flow to the area.
Is it okay to treat people after wax/laser hair removal?
It’s best to wait one week after these treatments to make sure the treated areas are fully healed and bodily fluid won’t get on the wand
What makes the Cryoskin 3.0 device unique?
The machine is very well manufactured by a company which makes over 40 different medical devices and has been doing so for the last 70 years. It uses an effect called the “Peltier Effect” to precisely control the temperature of the Wand (how the cold/heat is applied to the body).
What are the benefits?
The major benefit sought is a large decrease in fat mass which was visualized
by CT scans and measured between 15 and 40% according to the subjects
tested. On the other hand, it must not be forgotten that the apparatus is not
only capable of emitting cold but also of heat and of causing the two to
alternate, thus causing "thermal shock". This method of thermal shock is
medically recognized to be particularly restorative for tissues by significant
increase of local microcirculation and collagen.
Who should not do it?
There are few contraindications to treatment.
But we must still be vigilant to some pathologies:
Allergy to cold
Can I workout before?
How does it help me look younger?
As previously seen, the Cryoskin machine is capable of causing thermal shock
due to its ability to alternate rapidly and automatically between periods of skin
warming (up to 40°) and cooling (up to -8°) Celsius. This phenomenon causes a very
strong increase in the local metabolism and an acceleration of the
microcirculation which are both responsible for the production of collagen. The
collagen thus brings elasticity and toning to the skin and makes it possible to
visibly and durably combat skin aging.
Why can I only have treatments every 2 weeks?
The phenomenon of apoptosis is a natural phenomenon. A programmed
natural death of the fat cell. The latter is not destroyed by a phenomenon of
cavitation which would make it explode and create cell waste which would be
very difficult, or impossible to eliminate. This is a self-destruction specifically for fat cells, whose ingredients are going to be removed slowly and naturally from the body at the rate of metabolism.
Why can I only have 2 areas done at one time?
Again, to not overload the circuits. On the other hand, there is a strong internal
cooling of the tissues and the treating of more zones at the same time could
cause in extreme cases hypothermia, but in many cases a phenomenon of
What if I want to do my face, tummy, arms + legs in one session? Can I do the
In our opinion and advice: NO
Face and arm in a session for example
Belly and legs in another session
body in a session.
Do legs count as one area or 2?
The legs would count as one area because you would divide the time between
each leg (14 mins on one leg, 14 mins on the other).
What are the side effects?
There are few side effects from Cryoskin 3.0 treatments. Sometimes localized redness will occur that disappears after a few hours. Occasionally some local pain may be experienced that will rarely exceeds 2-3 hours. There may also be some itching without consequences and often a result of certain cosmetic products used by clients. For this reason we ask clients to not use anything before coming to do the treatment because some products can crystallize due to the cold and cause discomfort.
How is Cryoskin Facial treatment different to a Cryo Facial (using a local Cryotherapy machine)?
What is the difference between Cryoskin and other technologies?
There are other machines but tests and experience have shown that no other machine is currently capable of an inertia as strong as the Cryoskin. This inertia is due to the fact that the device does not only produce cold. It works by heat exchange with the body and the ability to descend very strongly and very quickly the temperature of the tissues by absorption of calories, accumulation of calories and evacuation by a system equipped with a ventilated hydraulic radiator.
