Cryo T-Shock Frequently Asked Questions
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 displayed on the screen. Pagani created the Cryo T Shock five years ago and has sold hundreds of units throughout Europe. This exact machine won the most innovative device award at Gicare 2014 International Expo in Paris.
How Does It Work?
The body contouring treatments last for roughly 60 minutes and are done manually employing a massage technique. 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 the phenomenon of apoptosis. This phenomenon is triggered when the temperature of the fat tissue is between 12 and 17 C which causes these cells to die. 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 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 most will be eliminated within 2 to 3 weeks. It has also 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.
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.
Anyone with the conditions below should not do this treatment:
- Kidney disease or dialysis
- Pregnant women
- Severe diabetes
- Undergoing chemotherapy
Frequency of Treatments
Fat freezing treatments can be performed once every 15 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 urine). Metabolism must therefore be allowed to evacuate this waste without overloading the system. Other treatments can be performed more frequently as there is not the same waste removal required.
What Should I Do Following A Treatment?
A vigorous workout, massage or compression will accelerate the benefits.
What’s The Difference Between The Cryo T Shock and Other Body Contouring Treatments?
There are other manual cryotherapy machines. But 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 fact that the device produces both heat and cold. 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.
Possible Side Effects
There are generally no side effects apart from the amount you urinate will increase slightly 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 generally due to the reaction of certain cosmetic products used by clients.
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.
How Long Do The Results Last?
Depending on the individual and depending also on their lifestyle and diet, the results last several months to several years. For fat loss treatments, the change is permanent much like liposuction but must be maintained with proper lifestyle as ALL fat loss treatments can be reversed if weight is continually being gained. For Cellulite and Skin Tightening an ongoing monthly maintenance schedule is recommended.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
The first results are generally visible within a week following the first session and sometimes immediate however, it should be noted that the best results appear in 2 to 3 weeks after the start of treatment and extend for several months after the end of treatment.
