Hi there! Today we are going to talk about Cryo T Shock - what it is, how it works, who might benefit from it, what to expect, and more….
First up, what is Cryo T shock
The name, admittedly, sounds a little scary…who wants “shock” in the title, right? But What that refers to is cryo Thermal shock -alternating cold and warm temperatures - to target fat deposits and tighten loose skin.
It is a non-invasive, safe alternative to surgical procedures like liposuction and tummy tucks.
It’s a safe and effective treatment that can be used on multiple areas of the body, such as the abdomen, arms, thighs and buttocks and is suitable for a variety of different skin types and ages.
It’s particularly beneficial to those who have stubborn fat deposits that dieting or exercise just won’t seem to move. Or for those who just can’t seem to get rid of the extra 5-10 pounds.
In addition to reducing fat cells, CryoT Shock can also tighten loose or sagging skin.
How does it work?
During the therapy, your fat cells will first be exposed to warm temperatures and then a prolonged period of cold. The cells will then be heated again, activating a process called apoptosis which is natural controlled cell death
Then the body naturally flushes the fat cells out through the bloodstream and then the lymphatic system in a few days to weeks following the treatment.
What to expect:
Before your treatment, we discuss what are of the body you want to treat, and take before photos, and a photo with Addicell (I’ll explain what that is in a moment)
We’ll have you sit or lay depending which area is being treated, and apply a conducting gel.
You will likely experience mild discomfort as the cold temperatures are applied to the target areas. But the feeling goes away after a pass or two and then its just cold. Some people do notice a sort of “numb” feeling afterward for a few days, but thats a normal part of the process and will diminish over time as your body adjusts.
After your session, we will take after photos, and send those to you.
Within 6 hours of a fat reduction treatment, you’ll need to stimulate your lymphatic system by either working out, sitting in an infrared sauna, dry brushing or getting a massage. - most of our clients choose the sauna because we offer it complimentary when getting cryo body treatments.
You’ll need 5 sessions for lasting results, but you’ll see some results right away, and some clients are seeing such great results that they choose to do a few more than 5 just to keep that momentum going.
