The treatment works by triggering the phenomenon of apoptosis of the fat cells. This is achieved without risk to the other tissues (in particular muscular tissue) by the fact that the intracellular electrolytes of the fat cell are the first to crystallize in the cold before all the others. This crystallization is information brought to the cell to program self-destruction. One could say that cryotherapy is a homeopathic treatment specific to the fat cell.
The device, the Cryo T Shock is very safe. 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 in real time on the screen. In the event of a malfunction, the device alerts the operator by sounding a tone and displaying an error message.
If you have a BMI of 25-30 a minimum of 6-10 sessions for T-Shock Fat Sculpting or Cellulite Treatment.**
A minimum of 5 sessions is recommended for T-Shock Facials if you are looking to improve wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. For clients looking for a one time boost in their appearance for a special event you can book a session to leave your skin looking glowing, dewy, and youthful!
For clients seeking improvement with loose and sagging skin, wrinkles, and see significant skin tightening, a minimum of 6-8 sessions is recommended for Neck, Decollete & Body T-Shock Toning treatments. If you are looking to slim down a double chin, then a minimum of 10 sessions is recommended.
**We can treat clients with a BMI of approximately 30 or less. Over 30 BMI makes it challenging to reach deeper layers of fat. A treatment area is generally defined as the size of an 8 x 11 piece of paper. Larger clients have more surface area and the amount of fat loss in larger areas can overload the detoxification system (the kidneys). A higher BMI will also require more sessions to eliminate fat cells and reduce cellulite.
-Results and number of sessions will vary between individuals
-We offer 5 & 10 Session Packages at a discounted rate
The feeling is rather pleasant at the start of the treatment, which is generally done with a short period of skin warming and a gradual but rapid decrease of the temperature. At the end of the treatment, the thermal shock appears very quickly, which gives a feeling of warmth and lightness at the same time.
The major benefit sought is a decrease in fat mass. It must not be forgotten that the apparatus is not only capable of emitting cold, but also heat and causing the two to alternate, thus causing “thermal shock”. This method of thermal shock is particularly restorative for tissues by a significant increase of local microcirculation and collagen.
No Botox or Fillers for four weeks prior to a facial
• Anyone undergoing dialysis, having any type of kidney disease and anyone with only one kidney should not have a fat or cellulite reduction treatment
• Anyone with active cancer or undergoing chemotherapy should not have a fat or cellulite treatment
• Anyone with an untreated abdominal hernia should not have any fat reduction treatments in that area
• Severe diabetes – Loss of sensation on the skin
• Varicose Veins
*If you are uncertain if you can be treated due to any of the above conditions or if they are cleared due to a past surgery or a medical condition not on the list. Ask your doctor for a doctor's release as it will be required before treating.
The usual frequency is 1 treatment every 15 days (for slimming treatments). 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 then urine). Metabolism must, therefore, be allowed to evacuate this waste without overloading the circuits.
Toning treatments can be performed once every week.
For clients under 45: 1x per week for first 5 sessions, then maintain as needed
For clients over 45: 1x per 3-4 days for first 5 sessions, then maintain as needed
Yes! It is highly recommended. However we do not want you working out 1-2 hours before your treatment. Our goal is to cool the area down and working out can cause your body to run warmer.
Nothing. If anything, the best possible diet and lifestyle to accompany the treatments (drink plenty of water in particular).
Please pay attention to the important information in preparation for your CRYOSLIMMING™ appointment for maximum results:
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.
The TShock 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°). 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 combat skin aging.
There are other manual cryotherapy machines, but no other machine is currently capable of an inertia as strong as the Cryo T Shock. 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.
The phenomenon of apoptosis is a natural phenomenon. A programmed natural death of the fat cell. 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.
Yes, but we recommend for T-Shock Fat Sculpting & Cellulite Treatment, to focus on one body part at a time. It is okay to have a T-Shock Facial and/or T-Shock Toning done during a T-Shock Fat Sculpting or Cellulite Treatment appointment.
Can be treated on the same day:
Arms & legs
Arms & stomach
Arms & back
Arms & hips
Hips & stomach
Hips & legs
Face & neck
Face & arms, legs, back, OR glutes
Glutes and legs
Can NOT be treated on the same day:
Legs and stomach cannot be treated on the same day.**
Legs and back cannot be treated on the same day.**
**Larger body areas cannot be treated on the same day because they create a large volume fat cell destruction. Cell destruction results in cellular waste that must be detoxified through the lymphatic and circulatory systems– we do not want to overload the detox system.
The risks concern only people with contraindications mentioned and remain minor and temporary.
The treatment is not for clients requiring weight loss but rather for the vast majority of those who have unsightly cellulite or fatty areas (often due to poor diet, poor lifestyle or a static workplace, for example). The treatment is a therapy to re-harmonize the body’s curves and not a slimming cure.
The first results are generally visible from the first session and often very encouraging. 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 the end of treatment.
Depending on the individual and depending also on their lifestyle and diet, the results last several months or several years. It is advisable to practice 2 or 3 sessions 6 months after the end of treatment to maintain results.
By implementing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a good diet.
The programmed temperatures depend on the desired effects and the zones being worked on. When the effect sought is more superficial (for example to cause hypervascularization of the epidermis and the dermis), the temperatures employed will be cold but positive because the tissue is more superficial and does not require the phenomenon of apoptosis be caused, but rather an acceleration of microcirculation and collagen production. On the contrary, when the desired effect is deeper (belly fat layer, for example), the
temperatures employed will be aimed at causing apoptosis by crystallization of intracellular electrolytes and therefore the temperatures employed will be largely negative.
Cryolipolysis is the use of below-zero temperatures to eliminate fat in the body whereas thermotherapy is the use of cold temperatures to rejuvenate and smooth the skin. Used for massaging the face and the body, Cryo T Shock delivers temperatures between -2°C to +4°C with the following effects:
The CRYO T Shock is the only device on the market offering facial rejuvenation treatments.
The gel has been specially designed to retain all its qualities of gliding and protection from -30 ° up to +60 °. Apart from the fact that the treatment head will have difficulty sliding on the skin, the heat and especially the cold will be much less penetrating and the risks of spontaneous freezing of the water contained in the surface tissues will be increased, therefore increasing the risk of alteration of these tissues. The treatment will thus be much less effective and much less pleasant or even unpleasant. The results will not be there and this is one of the few causes of failure.
No, we are unaware of any serious side effects from this therapy.
The treatment causes vasodilation in the treated area. This increases blood flow which results in increased collagen production. Collagen helps to break down cellulite but, cellulite will return if there are no changes in diet and exercise.
While everyone describes their experience with WBC differently, generally the response is it does NOT hurt, it’s just cold!
Sessions range from -180F to -240F.
A session is between 2-3 minutes depending on body composition, activeness, & other variables.
Before your first treatment, you will have to fill out a medical questionnaire and waiver. This information helps our staff to determine your ability to safely experience WBC.
No. You can achieve the benefits of cryotherapy at any point during your day. We actually recommend if you're trying to build muscle that you do cryo right before your workout. It can help increase your blood flow and energy levels to give you that extra push in the gym.
It is safe to do treatments daily. With an adequate amount of time in between sessions, it can even be done twice a day depending on your needs.
All users under the age of 18 will require parental consent.
To maximize the effectiveness of the treatment, we recommend as much skin exposure as you are comfortable with. We will have socks and gloves for your protection.
Men can wear shorts, boxers, or swim trunks. Women can wear anything from bras, underwear, shorts, or a bathing suit. We offer robes for your privacy.
