What is Cryotherapy and Cryoskin Treatment?

What is Cryotherapy and Cryoskin Treatment?

Cryotherapy is “cold therapy” and is a term used ay time extreme cold is used as a form of treatment. Cryotherapy treats skin abnormalities, burns fat, and decreases cellulite. In addition, cryotherapy can support weight loss, reduce inflammation, burn fat cells, and help support your immune and lymphatic systems.

One innovative and new way to take advantage of cryotherapy is to use Cryoskin or a state-of-the-art device from Italy. Cryoskin is a body-contouring procedure that uses heat and cold to reduce fat and tone and tighten the skin. Cryoskin is applied using a massage technique, which is painless and non-invasive.

Cryoskin works by triggering apoptosis, which causes the natural process of cell death. This process is accelerated by the cold temperature of the Cryoskin wand and decreases fat, reduces cellulite, and improves the quality of your skin.


During CryoSlimming® sessions, the technician uses a special wand to heat the treatment area. Then it is cooled down to subzero temperature, or the skin is rapidly cooled, which triggers a natural reduction in fat cells. So, this is the solution, whether you’re looking to reduce fat on your stomach, thighs, arms, or back.



With CryoToning®, a cooling wand is applied to the area to be treated. CryoToning is a gentle technique using cold temperatures to smooth skin, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and improve the skin’s overall texture and appearance. In addition, cooling helps to stimulate collagen production, which breaks down cellulite, leaving you with smooth, dimple-free skin.

CryoFacial® uses cold temperatures to increase blood flow and oxygen, reducing wrinkles and pores and improving skin elasticity. The treatment lifts and tones the skin of our face and neck, collagen, and is a non-invasive and natural way to look younger and more radiant.

The treatment takes about 20 minutes, and you will notice a difference immediately after treatment. You may need five sessions, but the frequency of the treatment depends on your age.

In a Cryoskin clinical by Dr. Philippe Blanchmaison of the Societe Francaise d’Accreditation Sante:

87.5% of participants experienced an improvement in body contour.
100% had improvement in toning, firmness, and smoothness.


How long are Cryoskin treatments?

The treatment lasts 20-44 minutes, depending on the desired area and treatment type.

How quickly will I see results?

Results are typically visible after the first 5 treatments. However, some can see results immediately. For CryoToning® and CryoFacial, results continue to improve for 48 hours after the treatment. For CryoSlimming®, results continue to improve over a two-week period. Results will depend on the individual and their lifestyle.

What should I do pre/post treatment?

For CryoSlimming®, avoid working out 2 hours pre-treatment. Avoid carbs/sugars for at least two-hour pre-and before post-treatment. Drink plenty of water for two weeks after the treatment to stimulate cell reduction.
